    Typically you hide it out of the way spot and let the folks here know you did that, then DM the location to the person who claims dibs. Posting the location in here will just tip the scalpers off.

    Walmart in Dubuque has some Wave 2 Netflix on shelf. Elita-1 and at least one Bumblebee that I stashed away.

    Coralville Target has a few Runabouts in the back, just ask for them and you should get them. They also have a few Fasttracks available. Coralville Walmart has a couple Airwaves, too, but only one Red Alert and a ton of Wheeljacks for Netflix wave 2 figures.

    Actually - yes. Windsor Heights Walmart has a single Netflix Optimus. No sign of Soundwave though. Looks like someone grabbed him already.

    Found Soundwave at the Ankeny Walmart tonight. He and Optimus were hiding in the back on the top shelf. Only one of each and I grabbed the SW.

    A friend was able to help me get a netflix prime

    There's a problem with the left eye's paint.

    Does anyone know what color I can use as a substitute?

    or how I can open the head to fix it?

    As of 2:30 today, the Coralville Walmart has 3 Netflix Optimuses (Optimi?) and the Iowa City Walmart (shocking, I know!) has one. Didn’t have time to ask staff if they had Soundwaves in the back, but they might.

    Maybe you can peel it off his ear antenna and glue it back in? Long shot but who knows?

    If all attempts fail, I prolly have an extra head that would work.

    I just hesitate to break the head when I don't know the proper point of entry to open in(bottom? Side?) I wish there was a screw on the head. It would make things easier

    I'm not sure what you mean by "peeling off his ear antenna"?

    Davenport's West Kimberly Walmart has a Netflix Prime. No Soundwave. It also looks like they might have restocked the Netflix deluxes, but I didn't see an Elita or Bee.

    Also, sorry it's off topic, but they had 5 Awe Strikers for interested Joe collectors.

    Decorah, Walmart has all the voyager class at $17 and deluxe class at $10. I grabbed quite a few of them and snatched the lone NF Soundwave hidden on the very top shelf (good thing to be tall). There is a prime up there. Saddly the NF hotlink and megatron still full price.
