    Ok, so in all I hit the Walmart (Elmore), Target, and ToysRUs in Davenport IA and the ToysRUs in Moline (which I know has stuff because they put some out last week and wouldn't let me buy it) and none of those stores have any TLK stuff out except for a few of the like kiddie bots at the Moline TRU.

    Walmart in Fort Dodge has had the TF5 figures out since launch day.
    I caved and got Barricade and Berserker since they are new molds.

    Stopped into the Dport TRU last night on a whim and sure enough they had movie figures out already and they had were for sale as I had already missed out the deluxes I wanted. They only had 2 left on the pegs meaning they had sold at least 4 already. They also had voyagers and I ended up grabbing a Optimus, leaving 2x Grimlocks left.

    They also had movie figures out at the Moline TRU in a special display right as you walk in. Lots of deluxes and a couple of Grimlocks. There were no mainline movie figures back in the normal section.

    Picked up the only set of TR Blitzwing and Octane at Ankeny Target. They also had several Legends Brawns and Roadburns, of which I grabbed one set. There were at least 2-3 of each left.

    Sorry man! I had been keeping an eye inn Brickseek.com and noticed some new voyagers pop up, so thought there was a good chance they were Blitzwing and Octane. Stinks there are only one of each in this initial inventory.

    Has anyone found TR Wave 4 deluxes in the Des Moines area? I haven't seen a single one.

    Not anymore. Sorry guys. I stopped on my way home from work last night and snagged them. Don't hate me. I grabbed the two new Legends figures as well, but there are PLENTY of those left.

    I'm almost positive I saw Krok like two or three months ago at the Walgreens on Walnut, but nothing in the "normal" retail chains.

    Confirmed: That same Krok is still at the downtown Des Moines Walmart on Walnut if anybody is interested in paying $20 for a Deluxe figure. He's in the middle of the peg, behind a Chromedome and a Brainstorm. I didn't see any more in Krok's wave, though.

    Sorry! If it helps any, although brickseek shows 0 Voyagers in Ankeny currently, Merle Hay shows 5, Altoona shows 2 "on hand" and 0 "saleable", which likely means they're in the stockroom and not on the floor. Urbandale shows 3, Valley West shows 3, Mills Civic shows 4, Southside shows 2. Might be worth calling and having one of them check and hold a few for you, if they do that kind of thing. I'm guessing the ones that show "2" might be your best bet, since it appears they come in cases of only two.

    Nothing new at the Windsor Heights Walmart this morning. They do have a TR leader Soundwave if anyone still needs one.
