    Indy Walmart had some minibots but that was all. The aisle was really picked over.

    Reissue Optimus at the Wilson Walmart. Not feeling the $49.97 for this especially when they have a ton of Hot Rod reduced to $7.50.

    Anybody seen Power of the Primes Optimal Optimus in/near the Triangle recently? Was hoping to grab one on clearance, but I couldn't find any Leaders at all at the handful of stores I checked (despite Brickseek saying they all had them in stock).

    I saw the morrisville target (park west?) move all the transformers clearance to another area. I'm not sure where they took it. They were boxing them up and putting them on those large metal carts you move furniture on. I did not see if Optimus was there. I only saw movie stuff with yellow stickers on top.

    There are now seven eight-packs at the Triangle Town Center Walmart. My daughter and I grabbed the one with Duderoni to wrap up Series 1.

    edit: Brickseek was spot-on with this one.

    I know this is a long shot, but has anyone encountered any G1 Reissue Devastators left over at any of their Walmarts? If so, I'd be willing to pay for your trouble if you'd pick one up and either ship it or meet me. I'm located near Charlotte and I'm looking for 3 of them (2 for me, 1 for my cousin), if I should be so lucky. Not holding my breath though...

    Would also be interested in G1 Reissue Starscreams if anyone's Walmart has them on clearance.

    I'm sorry to post this here, but I have to ask-

    Hey NC crowd - some of you may or may not remember, but I used to post in this forum when I lived in the indian trail/matthews area on the southeast corner of Charlotte, back before I moved to the area I'm in now, which is the far southern tip of South Carolina.

    I'm considering moving to the Raleigh/Durham area. It's generally pretty easy to find good/interesting information about the area, but I'm wondering - from reading online the chief complaint is "old" or "outdated" infrastructure. I'm not familiar with the area at all - so could any of you chime in about what the challenges are in infrastructure or anything else to watch out for?

    And of course if you have any transformer haunts that are a "must-visit" please let me know! I'll probably be in the area this weekend.
