    Springfield Target had some a few weeks ago. I picked up Megatronus and Solus.

    Nothing at Kirkwood Walmart unless someone needs 5 PotP Jazz figures for some reason.

    Bridgeton Walmart has a Voyager Ironhide if anyone is looking. He looks great in person but I'm not collecting movie figures.

    Wow. Ok. I must be losing it. I don't remember seeing the news that they had hit the US or anybody finding them. Getting older sucks. Circuits are getting corroded I guess.....
    Still glad I found em though.

    I’m visiting Des Moines and their Target has the new SS wave, VW Bee, Shadow Raider, and Recolored Ratchet. In my experience their stock is similar to Missouri’s metro areas for what it’s worth.

    I'm been looking for the final 3 prime masters to finish my prime wars collection for a while now. The only luck I've had is with the $10 versions on Amazon, and I'll be dam*ed if I pay double retail for any mainline current wave figures. Hopefully I'll have more luck at the toyman show this Sunday...

    I saw them in Boston 2 weeks ago when I was there, but didn’t see a reason to post it, expesually here. But I do think this is the first for MO.

    Also seen a Novastar at the Target in Kirkwood yesterday. So seems targets are getting some stock in STL as well.

    Novastar at Target Brentwood, along with SS Megs, Brawl, PotP Optimus, BadRod, Cyberverse Shockwave and Bumblebee, and some turbo chargers. Also what did they do with Shockwave in Cyberverse? He's a walking tank?

    I got them at Target in Kansas City area like a month or two ago. Just sayin'. Never saw wave 2 though, or Novastar or Primal.

    Has anyone seen the optimal optimus? I mean anywhere? Can we expect to see them in Ross and Tj Max's like all the other missing figures?

    AFIK, it was sighted in Asia and Austrailia a little while back, and that's it.

    Fellow colleagues,
    I just endured a terrible hour-and-ten minutes waiting in line for checkout at the Maplewood Walmart for a jar of peanut butter and a roll of paper towels. No bu11$hit. They really need to get their cashiers-to-customers ratio under control, plus their card readers seemed to be down.

    Anyway, before the nightmare, I located not one nor two but THREE, yes three G1 Devastator Reissue packs. They're not with the regular TF pegs, they're in the aisle with the race cars for some reason. Down toward the end on the left hand side facing the garden center. I contemplated buying it, but at a whopping $74.00 each, I'd rather get a couple KO Hulkies for that price. So if your nostalgia and wallet are in agreement, by all means have at it. Oh, and good luck with the check-out crowd, yeesh!

    -Your friendly neighborhood Kronatron.

    Gotta be weary of the wally-mart, they either are low on stock on everything, systems are down, or they don't have enough cashiers. Or if your lucky all 3!

    Thanks! Hit the SoCo Target on the way home and got myself all three as well! There’s still more there if anyone else is looking.

    They also had the Bumblee movie 4 Pack with the jump changer Bee and the three cassette repaints. I really only want Frenzy.....so not too keen on Dropping $29.99 on that set.

    Add a G1 Devastator set from Arnold Walmart!
    Not all that upset over the price, been wanting a G1 Dev for awhile and parting one together has been harder than it should!
    Glad to get a fresh new one. I’ll be hunting screamer too.

    Why would you ever wait an hour and ten minutes for only two things?

    That was pretty much the trifecta for me. Between the pharmacy line and every other cashier aparently not knowing how to flip the little "help me" light on, I went to 4 separate stations and each one was progressively worse. Finally I said screw it and did the self chexkout (damn things never read my cards right) and the first item I bleep scans like three times and crashes the system. The attendant I can see is freaking out, so I just went to the next available register and completed my transaction there. What an ordeal. Today was much better, though. In and out in no time.
