    Thanks for the tip, Turnip! Two were left when I arrived and now one remains. That one has a ripped box top, though. Not a big deal if you're gonna let him breathe.

    Cedar Falls 1st St. Walgreens had 4 Ratchets, I took 1. Speaking with store employees earlier in the week, I found out what day they get their weekly truck and then just came back that evening and they were on the shelf. Waterloo Logan Ave. supposedly got a truck today too and Waterloo University and Kimball stores on Wednesday, so they will likely have have stock soon too.

    If you're looking for Ratchet, just visit/call a store or two and ask what day they get their deliveries, and will he likely be on that next truck during this first week when it seems like most stores are getting them.

    @DecepticusPrime if you're looking for Ratchet

    35th Anniversary end cap sighting at the Mills Civic Pkwy Walmart. Actually, @jeff0514 spotted it first. (Great seeing you, Jeff!)

    Pretty sure we both came away with a Prime/Megs each. Peer pressure is a b*tch. We both folded.

    Plenty of everything left!

    Good to know there's plenty of everything. Hoping to get a Soundblaster myself.

    Cedar Falls Walmart had a Siege Thundercracker yesterday. First time I've seen him at retail.

    I drove through there but didn’t get a chance to stop in. I’m hoping they still have a Soundblaster on Sunday

    To much time spent at the mall and target and Best Buy. But for those interested, Target had a few of that new teal Decepticon Micromaster duo. (Honestly can’t remember their names)

    Davenport Target has a couple Apefaces this morning asking with the new wave of micromasters. Also had a couple of studio series Brawls if anyone missed out on him before.

    The West Kimberly Walmart in Davenport has a couple of new Studio Series 2007 Megatron's as of 11 today. They had a Mixmaster but I bought it.

    Meg's is really good IMHO, don't sleep on it.

    Cedar Falls Target has one Crosshairs and two Spinsters (after I bought a Crosshairs). All TF toys are also 20% off.

    Waterloo Walmart has one G1 Astrotrain left. I took the other one. It was sort of hidden under some SEIGE 35th toys in the aisle. I never saw a shelf marker.
