And nothing at the Davenport toys r us either...
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.
Roadburn and brawn found at davenport target last night
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.
Goddammit, I was there at 7pm yesterday hoping for those two voyagers.
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.
There's another set of TR Blitzwing and Octone at the Ankeny Target!
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.
found brawn and roadburn at Moline target if anyone is looking for them.
Arrgghh! I was there at 5:45pm yesterday looking for those two!
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.
Mills Civic is 4 Broadsides as of two days ago, doubt it's changed.
Checked out Urbandale and Merle Hay targets, nothing but Broadside, but they did have some Brawns and Chase or whatever his name is now, plus the have tlk figures out, grabbed myself a Barricade. Still haven't seen any wave 4 deluxes yet but plenty of wave 3 tho.
Valley West Target is full of Hot Rods and Broadsides. No TR Wave 4 deluxes.
Nothing new at the Windsor Heights Walmart this morning. They do have a TR leader Soundwave if anyone still needs one.
