    Finally found these two in the wild. Target on Woodruff Rd (Greenville).
    They had one set of them left yesterday.

    Picked up a springer at target bluffton yesterday. There has been an issue where springer is street-dated for 07/28th, and target won't allow the sale. This happened to me as well, but a knowledgeable cashier jumped in and just typed in the dpci- which worked. I didn't push for this or ask for it- a cashier just intervened.

    A friend of mine in Northeast Columbia found one in Target yesterday but couldn’t buy it. Later that day they went to Walmart and found Springer there, too, and was able to buy it without issue.

    Walmart in Simpsonville was set up for a restock this morning. I specifically saw a box of Studio Series on the palettes.

    The guys are cool and you can find some deals (or haggle a little).

    They just got a load of MP and 3P in. Also saw the new Springer (brand new figures are usually cheaper from Walmart or Target).

    Here's their current inventory except G1 (I was there today):

    Not at all a sighting, anyway - I've been posting here about the Bluffton/Hardeeville areas, but I've moved to North Carolina. In the Hilton Head Island and surrounding areas, they say that it is a transient population in that people are always coming and going. I made it about 15 months before I found myself in a position where I needed to leave. Best of luck to everyone!

    I was at Simpsonville Walmart yesterday, and the selection was absolutely abysmal.
    There was only Studio Series Shatter, SS Dropkick (helicopter), and SS Scrapmetal. That was it.

    New to Columbia area. There is no toy store for TF right...? Both walmarts nearby always have nothing in stock it seems.

    Laurens Walmart had the leader class Shckwave for $35.00 and G1 optimus also at $35.00 clearance.

    I bought the only red alert but left 2 brunt and 2 refractor.

    I have family down in Columbia and when I go visit we sometimes head over to Heroes and Dragons on Bush River Rd. Friendly staff and they have a decent selection of transformers there.
