    When I lived in Iowa City I'd have driven over, but now I'm much further away. :(

    There were about two or three pegs full of the Wave 1 Titans Return Deluxes at Valley West Target this afternoon and none showing in the stockroom. I saw a few mentions of Wave 2 Deluxes at Des Moines area Target stores on the boards here, but I've struck out at three so far (Valley West, South Side, and Ankeny). Plenty of Wave 1 figures at each of those places, though. Are you guys still seeing Wave 2 consistently in the Des Moines area? I'm guessing Ankeny had them, but has now restocked with Wave 1 for some reason.

    Also, Walgreens on the south side of Ankeny had no sign of any Transformers at all, let alone Titans Return or the coveted Walgreens exclusive Brainstorm. Plenty of low-end R/C helicopters and clearance baseball bat sets, if you're into that kind of thing.

    I've seen Wave 2 dlx at several Targets and a Walmart.

    It's Titan Masters that are nowhere to be found, of any wave. (Want Apeface badly)

    I've seen Wave 2 pretty reliably at Jordan Creek and the West Des Moines Walgreens. Valley West must have just restocked as they had Wave 2 on Tuesday.

    This always happens to me, once you finally get ahold of them, you will then find them everywhere! But usually after I buy them off ebay at a jacked up price.

    Ebay:
    Davenport TRU has a bunch of wave 2 Titans Return legends class. I'd say at least 2 each of Ravage, Rumble, and Laserbeak.

    One each of Chromedome and Highbrow at the Ankeny Blvd Walgreens in Ankeny yesterday. At $20 each, I passed. I figure I'll eventually see them at an area Target store.

    Is Powermaster Prime newsworthy? If so----Clive TRU. (they seem to have gotten rid of a dedicated spot for TF's, just a pile of miscellaneous figures in the middle of the Star Wars section)

    Downtown Des Moines Walgreens on Walnut had doubles of all but Wolfwire on the pegs. Still no sign of Brainstorm. I passed, because...$20 each. :(

    Tons of Laserbeak, Ravage, and Rumble and one lone Terri-Bull Titan Master at the Des Moines South side Target, but no Deluxe wave 2. Four wave 1 Deluxes left, but that's it. :-(

    Two or three full pegs of Titans Return Wave 1 Deluxes at both the South Side TRU and Ankeny Target. I don't think either of them will get Wave 2 anytime soon with that kind of inventory.

    Valley West Target, Jordan Creek Target and Jordan Creek Walmart all had multiple pegs full of multiple Wave 1 Deluxes. I scanned the Target ones and there were none in the stockroom.

    Okay, Des Moines. I give up. I think I spent the extra five bucks per figure in gas by now. Should have just pulled the trigger at Walgreens. :) 

    One of you mentioned looking for the Titan Masters. All three of the above listed places had multiple of the wave Apeface is in if that helps.
