Ankeny Walmart had the newer FOC figures. I picked up the only Starscream. They had 2 Ultra Magnums and 2 Sideswipes left.

Figures, when I'm out of town. Is the Starscream worth it? I have mixed feelings on the FOC figures I've bought thus far.

I think he's pretty good. Strongest of the set in my opinion but you do have to overlook his proportions being a little odd.

Yeah he looks interesting. I need to downsize my collection though, so my WFC/FOC figures might have to go. Debating getting rid of everything except G1, classics, and MP figures. I don't have room!!!

Same here except I'm kind of working in reverse. I already sold all of my G1, BW, MW, BM stuff. It kind of broke my heart but in the end I decided that I only ever display new stuff and that's what I really wanted to keep collecting. I'm working on getting my Armada, Energon, and Cybertron stuff ready to sell along with other odds and ends but it's getting harder because there are figures in each some really great molds mixed into these lines that I'm struggling with letting go. There's just no room in my house for everything and it's a waste having to keep 99% of my collection in storage tubs all the time.

Sorry, I was the one that found Kickback and Air Raid in Ankeny!

I am getting ready to move into a new home (in Norwalk) so I am opening these guys for temporary storage. All of these FOC figs are TINY in alt modes. I transformed Ultra Magnus and was VERY glad I still hadn't picked up Optimus. Very disappointing.... I do like Soundwave and Soundblaster, looking forward to Grimlock and Blaster. The cassettes/data tapes are OK, nothing to write home about. Has anyone else noticed the lack of glossy finish on the card backs since the cassettes have come out? They look dull, and the plastic does not stick well to the cardboard. Not a huge deal if you are a loose collector like me, but a MIMB collector would be going nuts!

I agree, I am really concentrating on G1 right now (have a complete Scorponok on the way!), Classics, and MP/Alts. Hopefully they move away from the FOC figs pretty quick and get back to Generations.

Found the new Kreon Microchangers at both Target stores in the QC. If you look over in the Valentines Day section where all the seasonal candy and stocking stuff type toys are you'll find them.

Davenport had probably half a box of them left when I got there last night (5 less after I left but there was definitely still at least one Bludgeon if that's who you're keen to find).

Moline had a full box when I got there this morning so I found the last two I was looking for and split. Not sure if there's a particular breakdown to how many of each character are in the box so I'll just say that I walked out with an Airachnid and a Springer.

FoC Wave 3 Available Online

Okay, so I just ordered four of the five FoC Wave 3 figs from hasbrotoyshop.com. HasbroToyShop.com Search Results Page I picked up Starscream, Ultra Magnus, Air Raid and Sideswipe. Kickback is sold out. I actually picked up an extra Air Raid to get the free shipping. So if anybody wants to trade a Kickback for an Air Raid, let me know! I should have them in about a week.

Kickback is available online at toysrus.com, but he's $16.99!! I'm really hoping to find it locally and save a few bucks. Transformers Generation Fall of Cybertron Action Figure - Kickback - Hasbro - Toys "R" Us

I just scored an FOC Grimlock and an FOC Blaster at the TRU in Moline, IL. They only had one set so there are none left now but I didn't bother to go check the Davenport, IA store after I found mine so there's a decent chance they have or had some too.

The TRU in Moline also had the Kre-O Prime and Ripclaw as well as a pretty fresh looking box of the new microchangers.
