    I don't remember for sure but I don't think so. They've mainly just had older waves. All I remember seeing for certain was Bonecrusher.

    Nope. Sorry, should have mentioned that. I scored a Grapple and Screamer set from that store about a week ago. All I'm still looking for are the deluxes and Optimus.

    If you're sick of the hunt, I think Pulse has everything you're still looking for in stock and ready to ship. Deluxes for sure. I snagged a Prime yesterday, but he may be sold out now.
    On a related note, I finally gave up on ever finding Siege Rumble/Ratbat in the wild and just bought a set from a Mercari seller. Ugh...

    Yeah I had preorders on Pulse since day 1 and they finally charged me yesterday (haven't shipped yet) so as of now I'm done hunting.

    Funny enough I found a lone Hoist at the Moline Target yesterday but no other ER was around so I didn't bother reporting it. Looks like that store is doing a big reset so new stock should probably be coming up soon. I've also seen in other the Indiana and Wisconsin threads that Walmart is starting to get ER stuff in stock now so might be worth checking those out if you haven't.

    No luck with the Des Moines targets. I still have a rain check for the sale last week.

    West Des Moines Jordan Creek Walmart had three pairs of Earthrise Starscream and Grapple. Two were left around noon.

    I found one at the Jordan Creek Target a couple weeks ago but picked up the only one they had.

    Hmm. I couldn't find starscream. I saw a grapple but left it.

    Davenport Target has 2x Grapples on the shelf right now and I just returned an unopened Hoist so it'll be at customer service or back in the shelf soon.

    Still nothing from any of the Des Moines targets

    Valley west looks to be stocked on siege merchandise. Don’t foresee them ordering anything anytime soon

    I found that Best Buy has Optimus for $49.99 but you have to order him. It's not bad, free 2 day delivery to your home and you can use PayPal. I had $15 in reward points so $34.99 total. They also have preorder for Scorponok available as well.
