    Elmore's Netflix Voyager Assortment rose in Brickseek. Could be a bug but if not, I'd love it if someone could slide a Soundwave somewhere for me.. As a teen 20 minutes away from a Walmart, I gotta make sure what I'm looking for is actually there.

    I snagged the only Elita-1 at the Grimes Walmart. The only other Netflix figures, Deluxe or Voyager, were a couple of Wheeljacks. Also hit the Ankeny Walmart, and they had an Elita-1 which I left on the pegs. Some wave one voyagers, and a metric shit ton of Wave 2 deluxes on the opposite side of the aisle in a different area on the bottom shelf, but no sign of bumblebee or soundwave anywhere.

    Elmore Walmart has a ton of Netflix W2 Deluxes. I slid the only bumblebee left under the Star Wars toys for whomever here still needs it.

    On another note. I spent 35 minutes there attempting to locate the Netflix voyagers. An employee said they have 9 on hand, with one on the shelf (Hotlink) so here I am, thinking I'm about to hit the mother lode (My close cousin just found his today in Indiana but there was only 1). Customer service was useless but somewhere in that store, there's at least 1 case of Soundwave and Prime.

    Overall, a really dissapointing trip.

    Elmore Walmart in Davenport has 3 Netflix Soundwaves. I threw 1 up top. Looks like you were accurate TickTock. Unfortunately Walmart employees kinda suck.

    Nice to see I was right. Fortunately, a family member surprised me with one as they had been running errands today and saw them.

    Walmart on SW side of CR has 2 Netflix Primes and Soundwaves as well as 1 Elita as of 5 min ago. One of the Soundwave boxes looked damaged but the toy appeared fine.

    The Silvis Walmart just put out some more Netflix deluxes (no new voyagers that I could see though) and there was at least 2 each of Elita and Bumblebee.

    Rodman Comics in Ankeny has most of Kingdom wave 1 in. I say most as I grabbed the last Cyclonus. Primal, core classes, and deluxes were all in.

    Nice! I contacted Rod a while ago about some upcoming Earthrise stuff, but it seemed like his supplier (Diamond, I think?) were WAAAAY behind on releases. Cool to see he's getting new stuff in faster than anybody else now! How were the prices compared to major retailers?

    He usually lists it at retail. Got Cyclonus for $30... actually $24 as Saturday he was doing 'Rod deals' where everything is 20% off. So that was super awesome. He did get the wave 3 and some of wave 2 of Earthrise in as well as Snapdragon if you're still needing any of that. He did say he can also get in the Nemesis Prime netflix spoiler packs too. He had two but they both sold already.

    And yeah in the past he would get stuff late it seemed but his supplier was on the ball this time. Hoping that continues. I did talk to him the other day and he was trying to get more Cyclonuses in but couldn't get just him. So not sure if he was able to get more Voyager waves or not.

    He's a small shop but Rod's a nice guy and I try to shop there when I can. Deals in mostly comics and some game stuff (Magic and Heroclix and the like) but does have a selection of action figures and tries to get newer stuff in when he can.
