    :buttrock : FOUND NEW ALTERNATORS!!!!!!! I found Hound, Silverstreak and Dead End at the South Wal-Mart Supercenter here in Des Moines, They had two Hounds and only one each of Silverstreak and Dead End. I hope Wally-World can keep them until I get paid again.

    Target in Corallville mall has Nemesis Stryka, probably had Fireflight, but he was long gone. Saw Omega Supreme in Powerlinx Battles packaging.

    I can't help but be amused by the fact that Energon basics seem to sell there, but Universe deluxes and to a lesser degree the ultras, sell better than Energon!

    Nemesis Prime was purchased at Target in West Burlington Iowa

    I followed Dave Dvandom's instructions in his review of the figure and took the DCPI number and asked an employee. They apparently had plenty, and because it is a new item, it is not counted as a Universe ultra.

    Shockblast was sighted (and of course purchased) at Shopko in Fort Madison Iowa.
    Still no new deluxes or Energon basics, but they are getting the Shockblast cases!

    No Cliffjumper oddly.

    Coralville Target's got Tow Line, Sharkticon, Energon Hot Shot and Bulkhead... Didn't see Downshift. They also have Rodimus, Mirage, Snowcat, and Demolishor in the new packaging.

    Sighted wave 4/5 basics (first Powerlinx wave) at Walmart in west Burlington, which also had Omega Supreme in Powerlinx packaging.
    And all their megas have dissappeared.

    Also saw Energon Bulkhead at Shopko in Burlington, along with Cliffjumper.

    The wall o' red has arrived at the Burlington Walmart. All deluxes due on Powerlinx cards have been sighted (even Slugslinger, I must have gotten there before the scalpers). Of all the deluxes, Downshift was the hardest to find there.

    Keokuk in SE Iowa Walmart has gotten the first Powerlinx wave of basics, no new deluxes, though the current sale is likely to move those.

    Keokuk in SE Iowa
    Walmart: First wave of Powerlinx Megas (E. Ironhide, Dreadwing, repacked Shockblast and Cliffjumper) sighted on top shelf (hard to put them with the rest when some idiot stocker decided to line the shelf with Scorponok and Landmine).

    Target in Corallville has basic and deluxe Powerlinx Battles assortments, but a whole crapload of old Ironhides.

    Still amazed at how well Universe deluxes sell at this location.

    Also had Alternator Hound and Silverstreak.

    Target in West Burlington has restocked their basics with the first combiner wave!
    I purchased Treadshot (Sky shadow), and Slege, Saw Duststorm, but I couldn't find A2, surprising that he would sell out.

    Kmart in West Burlington has stocked with the first Powerlinx mega wave, including Shockblast

    I am starting to suspect that Target has gotten the combiner cores, only to sell out...

    Target in West Burlington has Alternators Tracks, Meister, and Hound. Presumably Dead End was there since he is in the case assortment.

    Walmart in Keokuk has Energon megas wave 6 (Beachcomber, Wing Saber, Grimlock), though, they are less the Dinobots now ;)

    Super Wal-Mart in Coralville had Kicker and Barricade. Bought Barricade, who ROCKS but seems to have 50% of the steps missing from the instructions. Aisles partially re-set.
