    Snagged a lone Cosmos at the Jordan Creek Target yesterday afternoon. Only Roadburn was left as far as Legends and the scanner showed none in the stockroom. Plenty of Wave 3 Deluxes still, as Jeff reported earlier.

    I just now picked up a Kup at the Ankeny Target and it was the only one of the wave 4s left. It was on an aisle end cap a few aisles down from the main Transformers section, bunched in with some Last Knight stuff. Stockroom showed some, but the guy pulled them and they were some beat up looking wave 3s. :-(

    Saw three Cosmos (Cosmoses?) at the Ankeny Target, but not a single Seaspray. :(  I left them all since I snagged a Cosmos a few weeks back. Also, tons of those Wave 3s left.

    DSM South Side Target has a TON of TR Deluxes, but they're all wave 1 and 2!! So if anybody is still in need of a Skullsmasher, you're in luck. Absolutely zilch for Legends. Plenty of movie stuff, if you're into that.

    Is anyone interested in a Titans Return Chaos on Velocitron set? Everything is complete in open box. Corners of the box are dinged up a little bit. Decided I don't need it. Shoot me a PM if you are interested.

    I've also got a few miscellaneous figures from previous Transformers movies and most of the Transformers Animated series figures I am looking to get rid of. Also have classics style figures I may be looking to part with as well. If you're interested in buying at a reasonable price, let me know what you're looking for.

    I finally found the Wave 4 Titans Return at the West Glen Target. They had to pull from the back, but it looked like they had a bunch more in the case. I grabbed the four I was missing and left the rest. Not sure if they stocked the aisle or brought them back to the stockroom.

    Finally starting to see signs of new Titans Return releases in The Land That Distribution Forgot (aka Cedar Rapids). Found a Krok at TRU last week and Topspin at the Hiawatha Wal-Mart today. At this rate we should be seeing Seapsray and Octane by Thanksgiving.

    Ankeny Target had one each of TLK Voyager Megs and Hound. Passed on both due to the price, but they both (especially Megs) looked pretty good.

    Found Trypticon at the south side TRU in Des Moines. They hadn't put them on the shelves yet and the manager indicated they only got two on the truck today. Go get 'em, boys and girls!!

    Is it just me or does the South Side TRU get stuff way faster than the Clive one?

    Sorry for the late response but they had a couple boxes in back that they didn't put out yet. But i know the guy that went into the back that checked said they hadnt put them out yet due to space.
