    Walmart on Pelham (I85) has a bunch of Onslaughts and all the new autobot limbs.

    TRU on Woodruff had a metric buttload of Autobot limbs.

    I'm not sure if anyone knows, but Toy Nation on 107 Middleton Way Suite 11 in Greer, SC is open and is a vintage toy store.

    I went in yesterday and he had a great selection of vintage to modern Marvel figures, MOTU, Ghostbusters, Star Wars, and of course Transformers. Great prices and good quality. I got a G1 sludge in great shape sans weapon for $40 bucks.

    Transformers wise he had G1: Jetfire, MIB Trypticon, MIB Metroplex, MIB Sky Lynx, MIB Glavatron, complete Gnaw (fantastic shape) Onslaught, Grimlock, Swoop, Grapple, and several others.

    He also has quite a few Energon, Universe (original universe as in BW repaints and the like),and Armada stuff.

    Anyone in Myrtle Beach able to check on something at the Seaboard Target? Send me a PM.

    And, to stay on topic, Charleston TRU had a fair share of Trailbreakers and Smokescreens. ;D

    No 3P or KO shops; just a few brick-and-mortar stores, but you have to take different routes to get to them (mainly Walmarts and Walgreens/Rite Aid). There are some Walgreens and Rite-Aids on the way and at Myrtle Beach. One Walmart is near two strip-malls, and another is located somewhere near Walgreens (on the way down). There used to be a TRU Outlet store, but it closed down. Darn, that place had good toys. At the beach, there's a Target, TRU, and a Walmart. I wouldn't recommend the Walmart at the beach (near Coastal Grand Mall) because lots of violent events have happened there over the years (I hear). However, whenever I'm down there, the stores either have little-to-nothing on the shelves or they're cleared of my coveted toys (CW boxsets and POP! figures). If you're wanting NuRID, then just hope you don't have the first waves and the entire COTF sublime, as they're shelf warming at the Seaboard Street TRU (the one mentioned above). Target usually has nothing (same for Walmarts). However, in summer, these stores seem to have a surplus of toys. I hope this helps, and happy hunting!

    I went to Anderson the other day and swung by TRU, nothing new as far as sightings but they had CW deluxes for 22.99. WTF is up with that? Nothing else in the store is marked up that high. I remember when Classics came out in 2006 I picked up Astrotrain and Starscream for 14 bucks total. I'm getting too old for this shit. That being said I can't wait for Titans Return.

    The Wal-mart on Woodruff Road had some Mirages and Sunstreakers a few days ago when I stopped in. And yeah, Anderson TRU isn't the greatest. I was there the other day and missed the $22.99 price change...ridiculous. The Target in Anderson hasn't really gotten anything new in months.

    Walmart in West Columbia still has leader Ultra Magnuses if anyone missed out on him.

    Anyone seen Sky Lynx anywhere?
