    I just bought the original for $15 at I-Con Saturday, and I don't want to pay even more for the upgrade kit to make the new one look like he should. He's neat, but I'd rather spend the money on other things.

    I picked up OpOp just a couple weeks before my Siege wave 1 came in and it's interesting just how much better the new line feels compared to the last couple. Sure, they're a little smaller but they feel more dense.

    Agreed. I came to accept the while Primes trilogy for what it was but when I first opened up Siege Op the difference floored me. I only have Siege Op and Megs so far but they are both fantastic and remind me of the good old days of classics and generations. I'll happily take the smaller size of the figures keep feeling this solid and have the same amount of care to not be hollow and not cheap feeling.

    The deluxes feel pretty good too.

    Moline Target had at least 3x Dropkicks and 1x KSI Sentry's as of about 7pm last night.

    I've been checking the Walmart and Target near me (Mason City) and no signs at all.
    Hell, I'll be surprised if they show up before the end of the year.
    My Walmart has a shit ton of POTP Grimlock and Starscream.
    Their shelf is full of them and even the top shelf. It's like why do you have so many?!

    As of yesterday S.Side Target had hooks full of the $10ish and $15ish Siege figures. Personally don't think they're worth it but if it your bag, go get em.

    Don't know if it's newsworthy, but there was a lone Studio Series Dropkick at West Glen Target.

    Moline Target has Siege deluxes on and end cap on the back side of where the regular Tf section is. Didn't look at which ones but I'd wager at least 2 full sets. Still no other Siege stuff. The hunt continues for micromasters and battlemasters.

    The Blairs Ferry Target here in CR has the same end cap, one aisle over from the main TF section. It has Targetmasters, Micromasters, and deluxes (minus one Flywheels). There's also a Rodimus Unicronus if anyone's looking.

    I just picked up most of what the Southside Des Moines Target had for siege but there's still a couple battle masters and micro masters left.

    Ankeny Target only had Flywheels and Cog, but they're the two deluxes I want, so yay! Still one left of each on that random endcap like mentioned above.

    Might save someone a wasted trip, there's nothing new at Urbandale Target. Did have several Leader Rodimus Prime and most of the Abominus limbs, if anyone's looking.

    I was there earlier today as well, and while they didn't have any Seige, they do have that "then and now" Studio Series Bumblebee two pack.

    I've seen that several times around town already, and in good quantities at each place---I figured anyone who wanted it, probably already found it. :)

    Case of 8 Siege Deluxes at the Altoona Target. I snagged one set of four and left the other set of four. They pulled them from the back and left the rest at the electronics desk. Not sure if they set the rest after I left.

    Davenport Target finally put out the Siege figures. As of around 2pm today they had Battlemasters, Micromasters, and Deluxes. Probably 2 full sets of each of the smaller figures and it seemed they only had maybe 4 or 5 deluxes and I didn't really examine what was there. They also had the Studio Series Bumblebee 2-pack.
