    I left behind a Red Alert and Brunt at the Waterloo Wal-Mart (I took one of each and both Reflectors).

    Lucky. I've scanned ours and our system has an overage of a case of deluxes. It's good to know wave 3 has made it to the cedar valley

    Windsor Heights Walmart has a couple of cases. I picked up a full wave plus the extra Refractors.

    Welp... seems the Davenport Walmart on Elmore just got a restock of save 2 siege figures so most likely I won't see any wave 3 for a few weeks there.

    Snagged a set of Wave 3 Deluxes at the Grimes Walmart. Left one Brunt and one Red Alert. Looks like somebody grabbed the other Reflector. They also had some Wave 2 leftovers.

    Something tells me it's gonna be pretty tough to get three Reflectors.

    Luckily I was able to get my three all in one go. The individual robot modes are neat but the alt mode is a big nothing so I'm glad I was able to put the camera together right away.

    Well, I reverse jinxed myself! Found the other two Refraktors at THE Duff Ave Walmart in Ames. They were the only two on the shelf (along with the rest of his case mates and some leftover wave 2s),but brickseek still shows 23 in stock at that location and there were way less than that n the floor. Thinking that means they have a case in the back.

    Well I also jinxed myself. The one day I didnt look was yesterday and we got wave 3 in according to the lady there. When I saw them today it looked like one reflector was already gone with one left and everything else from that case still there. Why did they repack Hound rather than fill out another reflector or 2

    Went to the Waverly Wal-Mart yesterday morning and got my third Reflector. Left behind the rest of the case. They also have a Shockwave and three Ultra Magni.

    I just got Siege Springer from the Cedar Falls Wal-Mart, it was the only one there. But in-stock numbers went up at the Waterloo Wal-Mart at well, so I expect there's one there too.

    The Ames Walmart on 69 (by the mall) has 2x Seige Springers and 2x Seige Stsrscreams. Passed on picking up Springer cuz he just doesn't have the personality of the previous release (IMO).

    I agree Shifty, at $30? I just do not see a value. That plus I have Apache, he pretty much covers all the bases.

    I picked up the lone Springer at the Davenport Walmart on Elmore and I like him quite a bit. B the car mode is really really nice.
