    Saw a single deluxe AOE Drift at the Davenport Toys'R'Us earlier today. It was back in the normal section, not the giant display up front.

    I found deluxe AOE Slash and Drift at Walmart yesterday. They were only $9.97 each, just as reported by other sites.

    I just moved up here back to Iowa because I felt like coming home, but does anyone know any conventions in the future? Like the Iowa Comic Con or something?

    Drift, Slash and Strafe are at the 73rd St Walmart. They're in a display by the electronics department.

    Yeah, I'm seeing these displays packed with wave 2 AOE deluxes at quite a few Walmarts. And they are never in the toy aisle per say. I picked up another Drift, another Slug, another Slash, and another Strafe to leave MISB. As we all know, Hasbro dumbly put in another classic camaro BB with each wave 2 case. BB's are clogging shelves all over again. And wave 3 will see another damn BB, albeit one that I may actually get.. but still. The dinobots and Drift are the deluxes that are selling.

    Gens. Rattrap, AOE Hound, and AOE Galvatron are the only three I'm interested in that are "out" that I haven't seen yet in Iowa.

    The IC Walmart has several Tailgates, and one Skrapnel. They also have several of both sets of Aubobot datadiscs, weirdly enough.
    The Coralville Target has a few Tailgates, but no Skrapnel, and several Prime and Bumblebee Legends, weirdly enough. They also have a few Scoops, Minicons, and Armada Starscreams, if anyone missed that wave.
    The Coralville Walmart has multiple Swerves and one Cosmos.

    OT: I will be in Des Moines this coming weekend. Are there any great collectible toy or comic shops in town? I do open all my toys, so I wouldn't mind finding a shop that sells loose stuff.

    A shop in Mason City predominantly buys/sales all things Transformers... it's pretty much a comic shop that slowly turned into a Transformer toy store, loose and MISB, every single generation.

    But your timing is bad, as it was just Botcon... so the 100's of TF toys that were there... were presumably sold at the con.

    Anyway, as for AOE Hound and Galvatron, I may just order them. Also I may order Lockdown and Rattrap.
    I'm getting sick of the hunt.
