    Dorman Center Walmart in Spartanburg looks like the restocked with Grindor/Slag. Must have about 15 of each. Some in the toy Isle and some in the next isle over with the overflow toys.

    They did have Core Class Soundwave so I picked him up. I didnt see any more of him.

    Heads Up- Laurens Walmart had one Rinox and one Cyclonus but not with the regular figures- Head 2 rows over towards the bikes and they were on a random shelf in the board game isle. wasnt looking for either of them so left both behind. Happy Hunting!

    Walmart in Lexington had a custom painted Tigatron out of the Kingdom Cheetor mold, but it was in the Kingdom Tigatron. I've never seen that much effort put into a fake return like that.

    Heroes and Dragons is pretty cool! I don't usually get much from there since a lot of it is definitely overpriced, but it's cool to look around.

    My biggest problem with heros and dragons, besides the price, is there general attitudes towards customers they don't know. I use to go there all the time when I lived in Columbia, but since I moved to the upstate and don't get there much anymore, and don't know the people working there anymore, their attitudes are horrible. The selection of TFs is great, but not worth dealing with rudness, and pettiness.

    I've never had anyone be rude to me, but I definitely get a weird feeling there sometimes. Mostly from the owner, he kinda has a "douche" vibe to him, but the guy that usually runs the register has always been nice and friendly. I also only go in there like 3 or 4 times a year now, if that.

    Has anyone seen SS Bumblebee movie Soundwave? I almost feel left out since so many other people are finding him.

    I haven't yet, at least in the shops I stop at between where I work and home (Lower Richland - West Columbia).
    I'm also looking for him too. Need him for my Soundwave shrine. Almost tempted to just go the ebay route, but those prices are irresponsible

    A fellow man of taste. I've given up even going to the cola area targets/walmarts etc (Especially the lexington ones who's toy isles look like they've been hurrican riven since the pandemic started), I've gotten so little out of them in the last year. I just humbly pre-order online and wander into heroes and dragons every once in a blue moon to overpay for something/find something really hard to find.

    Oh, forgot to post this too: The barnyard flea market has a lot of toystores in the front row, you can find some vintage stuff amonst the stalls, but the owner of one of the dedicated shops says he has a big order of transformers merch coming in soon (Including several arcs for those of you that missed out).
