    It's crazy that they were predicting almost a foot of snow and it looks like the state'll only get around 4-5".

    I'm in West Des Moines and I'd guess we'd got at least 7-8 inches based on what I just had to drag my garbage can through.

    One Grimlock left at Dubuque target. No other 86 or Kingdom. Checked walmart as well and it continues to be bare bones.

    Just left Dubuque Target. There is still one SS 86 Grimlock and a handful of Ectotrons on the shelf.

    73rd Street Walmart in Windsor Heights has the first wave of Studio Series 86 deluxes.

    2 SS86 Grimlocks at West Kimberly Walmart in Davenport right now.

    EDIT: Down to one, I had a buddy that wanted him.

    Got a set, thanks! There were still a few Kupps and Blurs left, I think I got the last Jazz though.

    Elmore Targets got some sort of inventory issue where it shows kingdom and ss86 stuff on the floor but not in the back so the tech/toy guy chalked it up to covid issues and said there's nothing he can do.

    Good stock of Kingdom Core class at W Kimberly Walmart in Davenport, but nothing else. Really hoping to find a Cyclonus before my BBTS order kicks through, so I can cancel it.

    Took the lengthy drive to Clinton and scored big! They had 2 cases of the new Retro Joes, 5 or 6 cases of the spider verse marvel legends wave, a set of retro headmasters and 1 case of kingdom deluxe. It feels nice to finally find something I've been looking for.

    Not to derail the Transformers sightings thread, but by new Retro Joes, do you mean wave 3 (Duke, Cobra Commander, and Lady Jaye)?

    It looks like the street date for Wave 2 is April 1st, but I'd start looking for them in March.
