    Poor shopping day for me :( 
    West Burlington: Walmart: NO wave2 basics, no 20th Prime, still have Power Rangers display up
    Target: They still have Treadbolts on the shelf, Grey gun 20th Prime spotted.

    Kmart: Picked up the only Landmine in their meager TF section.

    Came back from Shopko Fort Madison a while ago, but they had Alternator Sideswipe, for $25.

    Found both Landmine and Megatron at south side Wal-Mart in DSM, they also had the Energon Mini-con 6 packs in stock. They had 1 Landmine left and about 5 Megatrons.

    Super Walmart in West Burlington has their TF display up with all exclusives accounted for as well as all Energon product to date. Surprisingly, Energon seems to be selling better than the Universe exclusives.

    Target in same city is having the reported Energon sale, good thru 4/9. When I was there, they finally have wave 2 deluxes out and had managed to sell out of all their basics (6 racks).

    Kmart in Burlington Iowa has Energon Megatron (mass release because he lacks the TF CN game sticker on the box). They also have lots of Armada RP daggers for $5

    Super Walmart in W. Burlington is still swimming in exclusives and Battle Ravages. Most exclusives have been marked down: Spychangers-$3; Minicons/RID Bros.-$7; Sunstorm-$15. No price change in Ruination

    Walmart in Keokuk is switching to a new Super Walmart being built, literaly, right next to the old one. I was there and they apparently just got some of the exclusives out (most were already on sale). The opening date for the new store is July 21st, I am hitting it then in hopes that they may have gotten some new stock (Arcee, Skydive, possibly wave 3 deluxes and Shockblast)

    You say that a day or two before 8/1? That's close enough to August :) 

    Anyway:
    Target in West Burlington: Reset for the Christmas season, saw Omega Supreme, the Energon role play weapons, but nothing else. *I am about ready to smash that accursed Treadbolt that's been there since Christmas!*
    Non -TF stuff there: Voice FX Duke GI Joe, plus new figures and vehicles. All kinds of "The Batman" stuff, reg. figures, dlx figs., Batmobile and Batcave. All the figures seem to be moving well.
    Lots of the new Star Wars assortments (with the retro packaging) including the Millenium Falcon and X-Wing vehicles.

    Super Walmart in West Burlington: Not a damn thing, doesn't look any different than it did last spring (they got so much crap, they can't even put up the fall sets in toys). The only worthwhile new stuff were the two new GI Joe alpha vehicles (Neutralizer and Battle Hornet). I will not be updating this location anymore for the forseeable future.

    Kmart in Burlington Iowa has the Crystal Widow vs Oil Slick 2 pack in stock. Unfortunately, not much else (but a lot of empty space). Mega Man NT figures were sighted

    For those that are interested (all 3 of you) I found BTR Night Attack Demolishers at a Dollar General in Fort Madison IA for $2.
    While I hate BTR, there is definate potential in the color scheme, perhaps this was the original PLX Demolisher?
