    Damn, I hit up Elmore Walmart and Target to no avail this morning. It sounds like I should've tried W Kimberly Walmart instead.

    The only kingdom figs I'm looking for are Megs and Cyclonus now so hopefully the Elmore Walmart starts yielding results.

    Coralville Target is a goldmine right now for everything but Deluxes. 1 Cyclonus, 4 Primals, 1 Megatron, 2 Prime repacks and a load of Core class guys. Plus 3 ER Megatrons and a bunch of the Buzzworthy line.

    There's one Kingdom Megs at the Walmart on SW side of CR.

    The Davenport Target had a single Kingdom figure in the shelf that and it just happened to be a Cyclonus so I grabbed it. Today is a good day.

    The Moline Target has pantloads of the buzz worthy Bumblebee and Spike 2packs as well but nothing else to report there.

    I got the Davenport Walmart on Elmore also but there was nothing new.

    Lol, that's good to know. That Davenport Ebay guy I was complaining about a few pages back has a Primal listed yesterday for 50$. I knew that stuff was shipping so he might've legitmately ordered it but this seems to allude to, "Oooh, a new toy to flip" since you found only a cyclonus.

    I just picked up a Kingdom Rattrap from Mill Civic Walmart. There is one more left in an open shipping box up top. There are also 2 Optimus Primals and a Kingdom Optimus Prime.

    I just stopped by Blairs Ferry Target in CR about 30 min ago and they have a decent stock of Buzzworthy Bumblebee stuff. I picked up one of the Bee and Spike packs but there's still plenty left. An interesting find was ER Thrust in the Clearance section. Sadly I did not have enough to get both so I left him. If he's still there tomorrow then I'll grab him but if someone picks him up before then, congrats. 2021-01-14 09.34.42.jpg 2021-01-14 09.37.18.jpg 2021-01-14 09.48.36.jpg

    Still hunting for a Cyclonus. Checked both QC Targets, plus Moline and Elmore Walmarts. All I found was a Core Optimus. There's still one left, plus plenty Core Bumblebees and Spike at Moline Target.

    Also, if anybody's missing the last Netflix deluxes, Geneseo Walmart has a good stock of them if you're able to make it out there.

    Nothing new at elmore. I also had a dude (Who turned out to collect black series!) check studio series for me. 4 Leaders have disappeared so they either sold today or were lost in the reset.

    Also, I wouldn't count on SS 86 Deluxes showing up at Elmore Target for a bit as the guy found 2 new cases of the Topspin wave.

    Stopped at a couple stores this morning. Cedar Falls Walmart had nothing new other than one Kingdom Warpath. Cedar Falls Target had two Kingdom Leader Primes, two Optimus Primal, and one Cyclonus.

    Did an early hunt today around the QC. Went everywhere except Moline Walmart.

    Retro headmasters are available at every Walmart I visited except Silvis (they were there but I bought them) and reach store spears to have just one full set.

    No Kingdom or Studio 86 to be found except that same lone core class Op at Moline Target.

    For my Des Moines people - Winsor Heights Wal-Mart does have Studio Hot Rod in. I grabbed the last Scourge.

    Also side note - seems someone swapped a Netflix Optimus Prime with an Earthrise figure. Looked complete otherwise (had the battle masters and his rifle). So if anyone's needing a cheap (he's on sale!) Earthrise Optimus w/o trailer, I saw him over in the Lego isle towards the back.

    Found one set of four Retro Headmasters at the Ankeny Walmart and a lone Studio Series 86 Grimlock at the Ankeny Target. Ankeny Target also had a Kingdom Leader Prime and a Kingdom Leader Megatron which I left behind.

    I was there over lunch, so perhaps somebody snagged them between the time I left and the time you arrived. It seems these are coming out pretty regularly, so hopefully you'll find one soon!

    2 Studio Series 86 Grimlocks at Elmore Walmart in Davenport right now! Also retro Headmasters. Target had nothing.

    My search for Cyclonus continues...

    Thanks for the heads-up! Only 1x Grimlock left now.

    They also had the new cyberverse deluxe Prowl, Starscream, and Soundwave if anyone cares.

    I gotta say, I bought a set of these yesterday and I don't regret it. They were decent figures to begin with and the new colors and paint apps really make these guys look nice.

    Walmart on SW side in CR just got restocked with a decent amount of Kingdom figures.

    They have one Cyclonus and 3 Primal.
