    The Walmart didn't have any Energon, but my mother just finished her Xmas shopping and got me both Yellow Landfill and Unicron w/ Dark Saber.

    Apparently they are finally moving some of the old Armada stock and hopefully this will mean that Energon will be in stock in the next couple of days.

    Found wave 1 basics, wave 1 megas, and Skorponok at Target in Burlington Iowa. Had to take Skorpy back, tail electronics were messed up.

    Walmart in Burlington has put up the Energon pallet with wave 1 basics and deluxes, Rapid Run assortment

    Edit: Forget to mention this, Depthcharge and the Tanksidion pack are both available at previously mentioned Target.
    Walmart has apparently stopped carrying ultra figs, temporary or permanent, I don't know.

    Doom, here's a question for you not to get off topic, but you work at a comic shop in mason city? Is that that Oakleaf place by chance, or that other one in that strip mall that I don't remember the name of? I was just curious.

    At both Target and Walmart in West Burlington, today, I found Alternator Smokescreen.
    Walmart now has all Energon to wave 1.5, Treadbolts are gone and no TWs yet. Got the only Starscream they had :D

    Saw this last week, but forgot to post.
    Kmart in Burlington has Energon up to wave 1.5 (no ultras, of any series, that I could find), has Alt. Smokes, and lots of Armada roleplay swords.

    Shopko in Fort Madison has deluxe Energon to wave 1.5, and lots of HoC, including wave 5.

    West Burlington Walmart: TFU wave 4, Skywarp and Triceradon available. Also has a huge amount of overstock of the Energon basics (2-3 cases on the racks, almost triple that on the top of the aisle) Also spotted some Rapid Runs on the shelf, might be leftovers from the display or an extra 1.0 case. E TW finally confirmed, with a large supply of Scorponoks.

    Target at said location still hasn't stock beyond wave 1.0. Still has a few Treadbolts, Rapid Runs, but no Ultra Magnus.

    I was just at Walmart in West Burlington and they have two Anniversary Primes left (I bought one). Seems they actually sold rather well. This location also has Energon wave 2 deluxes.
    No sign of either wave2 basics or Landmine, not surprising given that they still have a huge overstock of wave 1 basics and a good number of Scorps and TW.
    Surprisingly, they were sold out of Alternators.

    Was just at Coralville Mall Target, Armada cards are in. They have a tag up for 20th Anniversary Prime for 69.99. No figures present so I am not sure if they sold out or haven't stocked yet.
    NO wave 2 anything as well.
