    So this went from 0 to 60 in a day... Chaos on Velocitron sighting at the South Side DSM TRU! Snagged one and left the rest. Odd they were reporting not getting any when I called yesterday, then today got what appeared to be five or six. lol Stack of flyers on the customer service counter when you enter the store, each with a 20% off coupon attached, so snag one of those before checking out to save yourself $20 on the box set. :)

    All 4 Voltron limbs at Windsor Heights Walmart. (Yes, the combining versions, I'm certain)

    Not TF's, but I figured it could be of interest. First ones I've seen in weeks, much less a full set.

    They also had CW Leader Soundwave, looked to be on sale for $39.

    They had two more as of this morning. Also, the Ankeny Walmart has the new RID wave with Soundwave, Blurr, etc.

    Found one Chaos at Velocitron set at the Clive TRU. Box was a little dinged up. Unfortunately didn't see any 20% coupons at customer service.

    Haven't seen anything as of Friday but it does look like they restocked at most places.

    One Broadside at the Valley West Target, but I snagged it. Sorry. At least it appears they're fully in the wild now.

    Yep and when I showed up and tried to buy a couple they wouldn't ring up and the manager wouldn't sell them to me. They also now pulled them from the shelf. Frustrating as usual.

    That figures. I didn't try buying them, didn't like the looks of them so far. Sucks Toysrus is typical Toysrus!

    Well that was disappointing... Hit Wal-mart in Dport this morning early like I've done for every other movie figure release day only this time they didn't have a single new bot.
