    I checked the Walmart on Nebraska 2 in Lincoln on my way into town. They had the standard Animated wave 1 and 2 deluxes (primarily BA and Ratchet, plus a few Lockdown), and all of wave 1 voyagers, no wave 2 to speak of.

    Lincoln Target off Nebraska 2 had virtually nothing from Animated and a lot of movie figs.

    Walmart here in Columbus, NE has Universe Legends Hound and the 4 Animated ones. Picked up Universe Sideswipe the other day, also had Silverstreak, Galvatron, and Acid Storm. Animated, we got Shadow Blade Megatron and Blazing Lockdown, and thats about it for new ones. We have an overabundance of Voyager Lugnut and Universe Voyagers. Will update when i see anything new.

    Oh, my friend saw Universe Dinobot up in a Target in Lincoln, so I dunno if any other new waves are there yet. And in Norfolk, I got Universe Beachcomber and my friend got Deluxe Hound and Legends Optimus Prime.

    Saw THREE at the Walmart on 132nd and L on Sunday. Why I didn't buy 1 or all, I have no idea. But haven't seen them anywhere else.

    Oh and don't bother going there, I checked and they are all gone. Life isn't fair.

    But I did pick up a value pack on Hasbrotoys.com, just put in the coupon code TF2009 and you get a discount of 10%. I got the Prime and Jetfire pack for only $89.

    Wow I wasn't really expecting a response . LOL Thanks for the help. By the way I was in Target on 132nd and L tonight. They didn't have anything but Wheelie and Chromia. I'm glad I picked a lot up before the movie came out.

    I checked at hasbro. They are out of stock. I don't think I'm suppose to get it.

    Wow! Folks posting for Nebraska. Very cool.

    Got my Jetfire just over the bridge at the Council Bluffs TRU. This was a little over a week ago. That TRU has been the best by far for me since the movie stuff started getting released. (Hate, hate, HATE the TRU on 76th & Dodge.) Found my Fallen, Megatron, Mixmaster and Leader Jetfire over at that CB TRU. Also, the Gordmans right next door to them has TONS of KO's. Got a couple of the Legends class G1 Devastator KO's there. Very nice for $5. They also had some Superion and Bruticus KO's for really cheap. Pretty sure all of the Gordmans around town have them. They also have the first movie and G1 Robot Heroes for like $4 a pack.

    I'm suprised to see that there are ANY leader Jetfires in Omaha. Walmart in Bellevue has a crap ton of Leader Primes and Megs.
    Im holding off on Leader Prime till there's word whether or not the Buster Prime comes over to the US. But I'm seriously itching for a Jetfire.


    Anyone know if Shopko or Kmarts are worth the time checking out?

    And has anyone seen any of the Human Alliance figures around?

    Human Alliance Bumblebee seems to be only popping up around here at K-Mart. I picked mine up the night the flick came out at the K-Mart on 50th & L. He was on sale at the time and I used the $5 off coupon from the BK meals to get him for around $25.

    Honestly I haven't been out looking a lot the past week or two since I have everything I want for now. Might get another Leader Jetfire if I find him again so that I can have one combined with Prime and one alone. I really dig him. Also really wanting to find out if that Buster Prime will hit US.

    For right now, just waiting for Ice Cream Truck Twins and Voyager Long Haul. Oh, and the new Robot Heroes when they hit. Also considering picking up the Legends Class ROTF Devastator from BBTS. Would hate to wait on him only to find him hit US as some insane store exclusive that I'll have a bitch of a time hunting down. I'm still not sold on that big $100 Devs. Hopefully that will hit a nice clearance price quickly like Target with the automatic clearance on Ultimate Bumblebee. (By the way... if anyone sees him as cheap as he has been getting reported in other states, make sure you report it here. I have the one from the first flick, but getting the new one for under $50 would be nice.)

    Thanks. I'll hit up the 50th Kmart. Maybe I'll get lucky. I work right by the Big K on west Maple. If I find anything decent, I'll post it.

    Devastator would have to have a killer clearance price for me to pick him up. I'm not sold due to the lack of detail. You'd think for a hundred bucks they'd maybe detail the individual vehicles a hell of a lot more than they did.

    Ice Cream Twins is a must, as is a Jetfire and a leader Prime, but as far as the others, I may wait and see if there are any variants of some like there was for the first movie. (Really hoping for some G1 color schemes on the Constructicon vehicles)

    I live down the street from the Kmart on 144th and Stony Brook, and they haven't had anything since the movie figures release. I don't think their stock is ever very high, not to mention they hardly ever get new stuff.

    As for the HA figures. Nothing! And it's making me mad. All I read about are how awesomesauce these are, and I have yet to see one in person.

    Also, I think wave 4 has been "officially" released, so I'm looking forward to trying to find Jolt at least.

    Just a heads up for anyone who held out on Blades, Powerglide or any of the other non-TRU exclusive Universe Voyager or Ultras. TRU has all of their non-exclusive Universe stuff 50% off right now. I was kind of bummed that the exclusives weren't part of the sale as my brother still needs Unicron and the CB TRU still has six of them. But still, very nice to get Blades for $10.50 and Powerglide for $12.99 today.

    On a side note, I would love to talk to whatever jackhole over ordered and stocked out SO MANY Wave 3 figures at the 72nd & Dodge TRU. They are still overflowing with Ravages, Mudflaps, Interrogator Barricades and Cannon Bumblebees. Though I was happy the night I walked in there and had my pick of them to find good paintjobs, I knew even then that they would be sitting on them forever. I'd be very surprised if that location gets any of the new Wave 4 stuff when it starts hitting. I'm betting Target is going to be the place for Jolt and ICT Twins when they start showing up in town.

    Oh and EEVIAC... HA Bee is DEFINITELY the awesomesauce. :p  I'll be sure to post if I see him anywhere but since that one night at K-Mart three weeks ago I haven't seen anymore. My brother said that he saw them at the K-Mart out on 132nd & Maple but that was a week before I bought mine. Might be worth it to call and find out if they have any more in back as those places don't stock worth a shit. I am constantly amazed that any of them are even still in business on the few occasions I go in there hunting. That and their prices are RIDICULOUS. I think their regular price on HA Bumblebee was like $36.99! I think WalMart is only charging $24.99 for him.

    I might have to go snag a Cannon Bee thanks for the info. Also hoping wave 4 makes it here soon. I've been looking forward to Jolt.

    Is it me, or are the stores around Omaha pretty barren? I was out hunting today and can't find shit. Sideways, Wheelie, Rampage and Skids Leader Prime and Megs everywhere.

    Does this mean wave 4 may be getting put out tonight?

    I haven't been to a store in a while. Anything new out there? Did you find your answer to wave 4 being out?

    I haven't noticed anything new in the stores. Leader Megs is starting to crowd the shelves.

    I would think that we should be getting some new stuff within a few days or so. Colorado is reporting all the new stuff including Bruticus at Target. In fact it seems like every receipt posted in the new finds stuff on the main page has been from Target. Which would make sense as none of the Targets that I have been to over the past couple of weeks seem to have restocked ANYTHING. I had heard that this was the reason for the sale a couple of weeks ago and the coupons.

    I will be out hunting tomorrow and will post anything that I find. If there is anything specific that anyone is looking for I can also "hide" it for you. Would pick up a bunch of stuff but funds are kind of tight at the moment.
