    Thank you, but I should have specified The Last Knight. I have edited my post. Also, thank you, I didn't check there for Roddy either!

    Found two Misfires at the Blairs Ferry Target. Not 100% convinced they weren't a clever illusion.

    Kind of off topic but still toy related. Has anybody seen any of the new wave of Mattel WWE Retro figures at any area Walmart stores? These are the ones that look like the old Hasbro WWF figures from the 90s. This wave would be Triple H, Stone Cold, Mankind, The Rock, Sting, and Kane. I hit a couple Walmart locations around here that showed 20+ in stock via brickseek, but they were all from the first series (Lesnar, Cena, Undertaker, Warrior). They've been spotted in the wild as near as Minnesota. Again, sorry for the off-topic post!

    Ankeny Target has a Twintwist and a few others from that wave of figures, finally!

    Thanks for the heads up! I was able to snag the lone Windblade, but no sign of Twintwist or Misfire from that wave left. :(  Next time!

    So, this is maybe old news, and they are not a traditional figure, but at the Walgreens on 31st and University I found these smaller 'Titan' style non transforming guys. Plastic is actually very thick and robust, but as you can tell they are simple. They are roughly seven dollars, and while they do very little, they are hefty and not hollow or thin at all. I kind of like Strongarm in person! Happy hunting!!

    Sorry, I beat you to the Twintwist and Misfire late Friday afternoon! I think there may have been one more or Twintwist or Misfire left.

    It's all good, Jeff! I'm sure I'll find one around town eventually. Looks like they're starting to roll out.

    I found those weird Cyber-verse-battalion-cheap toys at Walgreens on Grand and EP in West Des Moines. They had Prowl, Jetfire, and Bumblebee and I picked up the Jetfire. It's...interesting. I'm not going to buy another but it's interesting to have had messed with one.

    Hiawatha Wal-Mart got a full case of wave 6 Titans Return deluxes. There are still three Slugslingers left after I bought one.

    Addendum: the Westdale Wal-Mart in CR has a full case of Overlords out on the shelf.
