    Targets in the Des Moines metro (and probably elsewhere) are doing 25% off Transformers toys and most of the ones I stopped at looked reasonably well stocked. I picked up a second troop builder pack and now I just hope they go on even deeper clearance soon!

    I found Reactivate Optimus and Soundwave at the Jordan Creek Mall GameStop today. It was only one but they're out there.

    Found Legacy dreadwing at Target on Mills Civic in WDSM. it was the last one, but I don't think I've seen it in person anywhere yet. They have a couple armada megatrons and a troup builder if you want to take advantage of the current markdown at Target.

    To the people still checking the Ross stores in Des Moines, can you all keep an eye out for the Black Series Grogu for me? Thanks.

    been a while since I looked, is Code Red news? Target in Altoona has 5 on shelf. Nothing else of note.

    Grabbed the only 3 UNI Cores at the Elmore Target. Doesn't look like anything else is new.

    Altoona Target has 3 Earthspark Battle Base Trailer Optimus Prime (2 are on an end cap nearby), 7x Code Red, and enough SS-103 Rhinox to choke a goat.

    I saw one Thundertron at the Jordan Creek Target last week but left it behind. They're at least trickling out.
