    Not a thing worth taking about at any of the Davenport stores today as of now.

    I had some time this morning and got the bug so I went to every Walmart and Target store in the quad cities except for the Walmart out on Kimberly and there was nothing to report anywhere that I went.

    Found Kingdom Wave 3 Deluxes at Decorah Walmart. They are mostly gone now.

    Mason City had an Inferno in a shabby box, passed; did grab the 3 wave 2 Headmasters on the bottom shelf--sorry none left.
    Also were a few Kingdome Wave 2 Core class and Jazz, Kup, and Blurr left on pegs and above.

    Technically not Iowa, but Moline Walmart has 1 Netflix Sparkless Bot, and that Netflix black Ironhide repaint (sorry, forgot the name). Think they had a Blurr too.

    I went to a couple Walmarts today, so i can't remember for sure, but I'm pretty sure W Kimberly Walmart had some; though it may have only been Core Class Prime, I didn't look through them.

    I can't remember for sure which store it was but I also think it was W Kimberly Walmart. Yes, they had Optimus and I think Rattraps till.

    Elmore Walmart in Davenport has Core Class Starscream and Megatron. The shelf is practically overflowing with them.

    Hit a few stores at various times today.

    New stuff found:
    • Went to the Davenport Walmart on Elmore this morning early to snag the Kingdom wave 2 core class Megatron and Starscream. Went back again late in the afternoon and still nothing new.
    • Davenport Target was a bust.
    • Silvis IL and Moline IL Walmarts both had wave 2 retro headmasters. Silvis had several sets, Moline had maybe 1 set.


    I was 0% excited about the core class figures but I've become kind of a completionist lately so picked Megs and Screamer up... GLAD I DID. These two are great. Both have a transformation step or two that took me by surprise. They look very good for their size in both modes and are fun to mess with.

    I picked up the wave 2 retro headmasters and I'll say again what I said with wave 1.... these are so much better than the Titan Returns versions. The extra paint apps elevate this figures to the moon and the Takara headsculpts are really good and give them great character. These also feel like they have way better QC than the TR releases.
