    Ankeny Walmart had all Siege classes today... 1x each of the leaders and voyagers and 1-3x each of the deluxes. Only shockwave and deluxes remain.

    I deferred on the Hound, due to having the previous universe/classics version but am having second thoughts now. If there’s still one left and you wouldn’t mind hiding it somewhere and PMing me id greatly appreciate it.

    I had the same thought originally, but you won't regret the purchase. Hound is pretty sweet in hand. He won't replace my Universe Hound, but definitely earned a spot somewhere. :)

    Hmm I still need the deluxes. Target over by Valley West had Megatron, Optimus, Shockwave, and Ultra Magnus yesterday. No deluxes though. Anyone hit up the Merle Hay Target lately?

    Side note as I was looking at legos with my son in another isle I saw a bearded guy also hitting up the transformers, so if it was someone from here I apologize if I sniped Shockwave or Optimus from you.

    Sorry Jeff but I just noticed your post. By the time I got there they were out of him anyway. He is a very good figure, little on the small side though. I will keep an eye out for him though. On a side note, I have a huge collection of TF's all series, complete and parts. Let me know if there's anything you need or want. Good chance I may have it.

    Just putting this out there. I'm looking for a Animated Optimus, Voyager size. Just seeing if anyone around here may have one they'd care to part with. Cash or trade. I have shitloads of TF's from all years, complete or parts many I would like to unload.

    I must have beat you there because they still had one!

    I believe I still have an Animated Voyager Optimus that I was planning to eventually sell. I need to take a look in some totes. Not sure what it’s worth, but I would prefer cash. I have most retail releases of the Animated line if you’re looking for anything else. Also older Movie stuff, Transformers Prime, and various Classics/Universe stuff. And a few third party items (I.e. Fansproject Insecticons).

    Hey Jeff, OP is the only one I'm looking for as far as Animated. I probably have him, just not sure where he is. As far as other figures, I'm concentrating on MP types. The FP Insecticons have an interesting style but for the money theyre not what I'm looking for. Any other 3P MP types?

    If anyone in the QC is looking, as of about 4:30pm today the Davenport Walmart on Elmore had what looked to be a pretty full assortment of Siege voyagers, deluxes, micro's, and battle masters. Don't remember seeing any leaders.

    Aaaaaand as of about 3pm today the Davenport Walmart on Elmore had a full case of new Studio Series deluxes. I bought the 3 I wanted but there was a full set still on the shelf as well as a couple Dropkicks and others.

    Checked both Target stores locally and no sign of new Studio Series voyagers or leaders yet.

    Spotted Ultra Magnus at the Elmore Walmart in Davenport. I was also in Knoxville, Iowa's Walmart Tuesday night, and spotted a Shockwave there.

    Two leader Overlords at the Mills Civic Pkwy TJ Maxx as of yesterday afternoon. Unbelievably $12.99 each.

    Has anybody seen the Walmart G1 reissues of Warpath or Gears anywhere in Iowa yet? Most stores in Des Moines have a fairly low stock of these legion class figures (less than 10) and it's still all the first wave with Bumblebee. Guessing restock should be soon, which should bring along wave 2 with it. Maybe?

    CR 29th Ave Walmart had two SS Jetfires and one SS Leader Megatron... Now it has only one Jetfire since I bought the others. Heh. But that's a good sign they may eventually put more out.

    Literally nothing else stocked.

    Edit: Oh yes, and as usual with anything brand new it wasn't in their system at the self-checkout. Had to go through a whole 20 min ordeal just to purchase them.
