    Hey does anyone on the Des Moines area know anywhere to find Play Arts Kai Final FantasyXV figures? I've checked Jays and Mayhem but no luck.

    Not sure, but would any of the Gamestops carry them? Other than Jays or Mayhem that is the only place that comes to mind.

    I've checked a few but came up empty handed, the employees had no idea what I was talking about, go figure.

    I picked up Earthrise Thrust at Mill Civic Target. As of 8:50am there is still one left along with a case of Kingdom deluxes.

    I was able to snag one deluxe Warpath there, but a gentleman next to me had the Thrust in his hand already. Maybe it was one of you dudes? Anyway, I left a bunch of the deluxe Beast Wars stuff behind because I'm not collecting Beast Wars at all. In all, I hit urbandale, Mills Civic, and Southeast 14th Target stores and only found the kingdom deluxes at Mills Civic as Turnip reported earlier.

    I should be heading out to Target at opening (Hopefully for just "1" cobra viper), if I see any kingdom or 86', s'there anything you'd want me to slip away for you guys?

    Please do for 86 but I did snag thrust from the Davenport target so they're in back.

    Always appreciate the help

    Thrust for sure but I'm in for all the '86 stuff and Kingdom Cyclonus and I would not ask you to hide all of that.

    Rodman's Comics is a great little shop. I just met up with him to buy three Deluxes from Kingdom.

    I hit SE14th, Mills Civic, Valley West, Urbandale, and Merle Hay today. The Kindom deluxes at Mills are the only bots I saw worth mentioning.

    Unfortunately slept in and now there's weather. I'll probably pop by this weekend. Might call and ask about Leaders though.

    Edit: Toy department guy I spoke to said he doesn't believe they have shelf spots for it yet nor have they unloaded everything of their trucks, but he did say this is reset week for the Elmore Target so it could be any day this week.

    Hit up the Target in Altoona this morning and snagged myself a Thrust. No more left on the shelf and no Studio Series 86.

    I got brave and took a detour to Davenport Target tonight while I was out getting dinner. Not much there unfortunately. Didn't see any Kingdom or Studio. I did pick up a Thrust that was out on the shelf. The was an employee stocking cart parked nearby that had another Thrust on it.

    I must have just missed you. Weird that they only had Primal and not Cyclonus. I'm have to go back tomorrow to see if they put them out.

    Are you sure they had 4 primals in the back and not 1 primal, 3 cyclonus's?

    Also, did you check for any of the leaders?

    Didn't check for any leaders but they may be there but I imagine the floor worker may have got it wrong and the other 3 are probably cyclonus.

    @Depthcharge yeah we just missed each other.

    Just FYI check Aldi (yes grocery store). The store in my area (Minnesota border town) had tons of Earthrise at $13 each. Some smashed boxes but many decent toys.

    I picked up two smokescreen and quitesson allicons.

    Both Moline and Davenport are a bust today. No Studio and no Kingdom. No Thrust at either location.

    None in the back or just nothing on the shelves? (Davenport) I should be heading there in an hour.
