    Overland Park Target at 119th and Metcalf:

    1x Premium Blackout
    1x Premium Ironhide
    1x First Strike Prime
    3x Incinerator

    No Premium Leaders.

    I hadn't planned on getting Ironhide, but the paint looks phenomenal, so I grabbed one. Then getting Ironhide made me want to get the damn Blackout as well. One each left.

    Holy crap! Someone else in western Kansas is on these boards! I'm 23 miles south of you in La Crosse so it looks like I'll be making a run to Hays later tonight. Did they have plenty more left?

    Hell yeah! When I got mine they had, in the deluxe line, about 4-5 of each figure and in the Voyager they had about 3-4 of each figure. They also had the Optimus vs Megatron 2 pack about 10 or more.

    Damn, I just got there earlier tonight and all they had were lots of Ratchets, BA's, Primes, and one Lockdown. For voyager there were a few Starscreams and Bulkheads along with lots of two packs. I got the last Lockdown along with Ratchet, Starscream, and Bulkhead. I asked a guy in the toys section if they had anymore in the back but he was just like "whatever's out there is all we got," although he didn't really seem like he knew what he was talking about. Oh well, I'm just kinda pissed there weren't any Prowl's or BB's left. Any idea when they get more shipments in?

    I have found that the best times to check for new shipments is usually in the morning on Saturdays and Sundays. I always buy TF on Saturdays and Sundays. That's when I usually come across new shipments. I very seldom come across anything new during the week. I usually go to Walmart late on Friday night and scope out the toy boxes to see what will be avaible on Saturday.

    And yeah, the people working at Walmart have no clue of what's going on. It's a crap job and all they care about is their paycheck. So I am not surprised with the associates response.

    If you give pm me some contact info, I'll let you know if I come across any BBs and Prowls. If you still need them I'll pick them up for you.

    Ahh thanks but I think I'll hold off right now because I'm going to Kansas City in 2 days so I'll see what they have there. Although if you happen to go to Wally in the next day or two and see those guys (and/or Grimlock), lemme know.

    Hey no problem. Good luck in your hunt for those Animated figures.

    I just got back into town and made a stop @ Wally World and they are just a handful of figures. Mainly the ones that were there when you checked.

    My girlfriend and I usually go to Wally several times per week so I'll keep checking and I will let you know what shows up. So just keep checking back.

    Premium Series Optimus Prime from the movie line is now at the Northrock Wal-mart is Wichita. The head's not as cool as I thought it would be...and definitely not worth another $40.

    And yeah, Wal-mart employees really don't know much about TFs. I asked a guy about the "new Animated" figures and he kinda gave me a blank look, and was like "Well, these Allspark Power movie toys are the newest ones." Hee hee.

    No Animated sightings yet. I might be going to Kansas City myself soon, so please let us know if you find anything!

    Alright well here's what I found in KC, mostly in the Leawood area:

    Wal-Mart at 11701 Metcalf in Overland Park: only movie toys, no animated.

    Wal-Mart Supercenter at 1701 West 133Rd Street (right off of State Line): they had some rachets, BA's, a prime, and a lockdown mixed in the with the movie toys as well as all wave 1 voyagers and the two-pack. i was initially bummed but then i found an endcap with the deluxe motherload. finally found prowl and BB, they had about 3 more of each, along with multiple's of all the other deluxes.

    Wal-Mart Supercenter at 15700 Metcalf Avenue in Overland Park: just some Ratchets and BA's and one BB i think.

    Hope this helps. Still haven't found Lugnut or Grimlock.

Just a heads up, all the KC collectors use the Missouri sightings for some reason and they are willing to help you find something if you tell them what you are looking for.

    Blue Valley Pkwy Target in OP has voyager Prime, Lugnut and Grimlock. Hardly any deluxes. Looks like Deep Space SS showed up too late because every Target has 10 or 20 of them. I'd wait until clearance to grab one, but must admit I am done with the movie line. Voyager Prime is easily the best animated figure at this time. Grimlock's bot mode is crap.

    O'yeah, they are on an endcap in the toys and they had more cases than they could stock of the voyagers.
