    I heard that stores that are considered to be high grossing are going to remain open in hopes that the company buying the Canadian portion will take 200 us stores. So for our area I assume TTC and Greenville would be the 2 highest grossing stores. As far as Greenville is concerned they were set to expand to a bigger location before all this crap started. Have you seen any signs there yet

    Durham started closing over a month ago. Cary starts this week. TTC is high grossing, the people at Cary said it will be last to go. I was also told that the stores will only be getting whatever is on the trucks currently, nothing newer. Take that for what it's worth.

    Stopped by the Concord Walwart and the shelve was nearly picked dry. all that was left was 1 Rodimus Unicronus and prime masters. All you are all vultures and I hate you with a burning passion. All I wanted was one figure at least.

    Don't be bitter. You have to figure that the store gets one case, with 2 sets Inside. The poster of the find probably got one set, leaving a very short window for whoever else sees the post. Be proactive, find your own finds and post them here, so others can complain that there was nothing left!

    Wal mart indian trail has one sludge and two rippersnappers. I have to say - I used to have this area of charlotte largely to myself, but it's clear someone for the last 6 months-ish hits every store in this area a lot - maybe every single day. Not complaining, just interesting.

    Exactly right, that was at about 8:30 in the morning too, so I’m sure someone came by in short order after that and grabbed the second set.

    Not me, I haven’t found much new in like the last year in charlotte. I did find Wave 2 deluxes but left all of them as I had resorted to online. That being said still looking for Wave 2 voyagers.

    Between the Wal-marts in Conover, Kernersville, Greensboro (Wendover), and Burlington, I picked up the new deluxe wave. Nothing left at Conover. Greensboro had only the new Dinobots and Rippersnapper. Burlington looked to have put out several cases with filled pegs and more on top.

    I preorder online the things I know I want from BBTS. If I come across those said items in a store I cancel the preorder in the store on my phone. But I do know the feeling of just needing a new TF right now. That’s why I have more movie toys than I’d care to admit.

    Walmart and Target in Mooresville have been dry for a couple weeks. I thought that Target might have some restocks since deluxes are on sale there, but nope as of yesterday.

    No signs of wave 2 at TTC Wal-Mart, Target and TRU. TRU was business as usual with no signs of it shutting down.

    Thanks for the update... Saved me the trip, as I was about to head down there. :) 

    Oh, and nothing new at Morrisville and US-70 Wal-Mart, as well as Southpoint and Briercreek Target.
