    Guess I don't know who you think is spamming, everybody here is posting different info on the very limited stores we have across Nebraska, but anyways. Went to the Target in Kearney on Friday, and found 4 Transformers Universe Nemesis Primes. Picked up one, but left the rest there. Nothing else of notice from the stores I've checked, but am making another round tonight so I'll post my findings (if anY) then.

    Also forgot, when i was in the Target in Kearney, it had 3 Omega Supremes in the Powerlinx Battles packaging, very cools looking. Found Transformers Universe Autobot Whirl in the Lincoln Super Wal-Mart on 27th and Superior, but that's it for now. Anybody else find anything?

    Wow, can't believe what I managed to find tonight. Checked out the Super Wal-Mart on 27th and Superior, nothing noticeable there other than a TON of Powerlinx Battles packaged Omnicons, quite a few Energon Strongarm and Offshoot. Target on 48th and Vine had nothing to speak of, the Target on 56th and Hwy 2 yielded 3 Omega Supremes in Powerlinx Battles packaging, but nothing else. Then..........got to the Super Wal-Mart on 87th and Hwy 2, found 2 Alternators Dead Ends (grabbed one), over a dozen Powerlinx Battles Omnicons, including Command Ravage (picked him up), and Doomlock (picked him up), but still no darned Tow-Lines or Downshifts anywhere.

    Well, went back out to the Super Wal-Mart on 87th and Hwy 2, no new Energon figures, but they did have 3 each of the TF: Universe figures Nemesis Strika and Fireflight with Firebot and Thunderwing, picked up one of each, still 2 left per figure there, anybody else finding anything, hopefully Tow-Line, Downshift or Bulkhead?

    Wow, just wow. I went hunting again tonight expecting nothing since I found something 2 of the last 3 nights, but boy was I wrong! While neither Wal-Mart yielded anything, the one Target I did check produced magnificently! Two cases of new Powerlinx Battles Packaging had been put on the shelves and I snagged 'em! I got Tow-Line and Downshift ('bout damn time!), Sharkticon (an awesome figure, one of my favorites in Energon right now), plus another Command Ravage and Doomlock, I"m heading out to check the other Target tomorrow, keeping my fingers crossed they'll be a Bulkhead there. Oh, the Wal-Mart on 87th and Hwy 2 did have 3 Alternators Hounds for anybody who doesn't have one, and another Mirage as well, anybody seen Bulkhead out there?

    Once again, Target on 56th and Hwy 2 is the place to be! Got Transformers Universe Magna Stampede AND Soundwave and Sjpace Case. Also.....................Energon Slugslinger! Still a ton of new Powerlinx toys the restocked on, not to mention ALL Alternators, Dead End, Hound, SilverStreak, SideSwipe and Smokescreen, I'll head back out today to see if there's anything else new, still haven't seen Bulkhead, but for once it seems like we are caught up with everybody else!

    Saw Powerlinx Battles figures in Toys R Us on 27th and Superior amazingly, they never have anything in it seems like. Anywho, they had PLXB Dreadwind and Energon Ironhide, both look pretty nice, but I left them both for lack of $$$. Good luck to whomever grabs them!

    Just wondering if anyone has seen anything in Nebraska. I know a lot of stores are kind of empty so maybe, just maybe we'll start to see some new items. Also, if you catch any series 6,7 or 8 Marvel Legends, post about them. That would be rad.

    Hey, its pretty empty right now besides the usual figures. I cant seem to find Energon Swoop and Grimlock for the life of me. I dont know what all youre looking for but TRUs have had some new Alternators, just yesterday i found Grimlock and Swindle at the Council Bluffs location. The other two in Omaha (do you make your way out there?) didnt really have much though. I dont collect Marvel Legends so im somewhat ignorant about who all are the new figures in what waves, but TRU on Dodge St. had a couple of Weapon Xs and Iron Mans, so that may be of interest to you. Other than that, nothing else stood out except for the mob of Silver Surfers, Gambit, and Elecktras that are all over.

    We've had a wave of new toys here in Lincoln. Both Targets and Both Wal-Marts have the first 3 parts of the Combiners, for Both Superion Maximus and Construction Maximus (or whatever his name is), found Alternators Meister and Tracks a while back, but haven't seen anything new. Ricochet is finally in stock at the TRU here. Marvel Legends, an overabundance of Nick Fury, Gambit, Elektra, Beast and Wolverine. Haven't found any Movie Likeness Punishers which is what I'm after.

    The only new Transformers figure i seen this past week when i was out was the Energon figure Barricade, i believe he was named. He made up the torso of Bruticus. It was a nice looking figure, but i passed on him for now. Other than that its pretty dead, same old Alts sticking around. Ive seen a couple of Marvel Legends movie Punisher, so he shouldnt be too difficult to find whenever he hits Lincoln.

    well, let's give this a shot again. i'm a little late with this but as of last friday, the TRU off of Dodge in Omaha had nothing new except Alternators. They are/were Prowl(1), Decepticharge(2) and Wheeljack(2). with the current BOGO promotion, not a bad deal to pick up all three at once! see you all later!

    Anyone seen anything movie-wise in their respective areas? I was in Kearney, NE this weekend and they had nothing, Lincoln has tons of the Protoform figs, but nothing else

    Think I'm the only one that actually checks this, but if anyone's interested, both Targets in Lincoln have an abundance of the 2nd wave of Exclusive Scouts (Clocker, Strongarm, Skyblast) and have overstock on the first wave of scouts as well. Spotted a couple of Dreadwings there, but no deluxe Arcee's or 08 BB's unfortunately.

    I just checked Walmart in Columbus, NE, and they had the cases of Animated toys, but they said they can't sell them yet. Hopefully they will put them out soon.

    They finally put out the Transformers Animated toys at Wal-Mart in Columbus, NE. They had Voyager Starscream, Bulkhead, and Megatron, Deluxe Lockdown, Blackarachnia, Ratchet, Cybertron mode Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Prowl. They also had 1 each of Universe Sunstreaker and Universe Prowl. I had checked Saturday morning around 2 AM CDT, and there was just movie toys, so they must have put them out either yesterday or today.
