    Good morning!

    I'm visiting from out of state this week and was wondering if you guys can recommend any good comic shops or toy stores in the Charleston area.

    I always like to check out local shops that may carry vintage TFs when I'm traveling.

    Thanks!

    Captain's Comics is good. 1209 Sam Rittenberg Blvd, 29407 They have a decent selection of Classic TF stuff. No "TOY" stores though. Got to travel to Columbia or Savannah GA for that.

    Thanks for the recommendation. We were able to hit it up on the way back from the Fire Museum.

    Some cool stuff I hadn't seen before (a complete Omega Supreme in box?!), but nothing I'd be able to fit on the plane back.

    My son did bring home a new Spider-Man Hot Wheel, and the guys were pretty friendly!

    There's a new super kroger or kroger marketplace or whatever it's called when they carry clothes and toys and everything, and it is in the buckwalter area of bluffton. They have a transformers section, but it's just studio series and kids stuff - no siege. Their regular price on studio series voyagers is 36.99, and the regular price on deluxes is 24.99. They did not have any leaders. They are currently running buy 1 get 1 free on transformers with a kroger plus card. Voyager wise they have 2 brawls and 2 megatrons. Deluxe wise at least 2 each of the cogman/shatter/etc wave.

    Lancaster Walmart has at least a half dozen of the G1 Prime reissues, and several of the reissue minibots (mostly Tailgate and Outback.)

    Saw two Chromias, one Ironhide, and one Prowl at the Simpsonville Walmart.
    There was also Siege Starscream and Megatron there, but be warned that the Starscream package looks to have been tampered with.

    Also, beware of the Megatron too. Somebody bought him, opened him, returned him, and stole the fusion cannon out of the box.

    Simpsonville Target has all of the Wave 1 Micromasters, Chromia, Firedrive and Lionizer from Siege. Jetfire, Rampage, Dropkick (helicopter), and Cogman from Studio Series are there too.

    A little late, but hey, I'm doing fine.

    As for sightings.. Toy Federation in Greer always has plenty of newer stuff but I only took pictures of the G1.

    I know this isnt what this thread is for, but i would like to start local first. I have Utopia and planet X omega supreme for sale for anyone who is interested.

    I am also open to any advise from others. Long story short, i need help to get through the next month financially till i start my new job and wait the 3 weeks for the first paycheck. Getting back on the ambulance.

    Its nice to finally see this place on here! I went with a friend little less than a year ago, and I managed to snag a MISB Combiner Wars Dead End for $25 (compared to like the $37/$38 he goes for on Amazon)
