Wow, Walmart on Butterfield and 53 is a disaster, they're remodelling. Not much TF-wise, a few of the FOC Wreckers, one or two each of Voy Springer, Blitzwing, and Sandstorm.

They're a few days behind! This was reported here last Friday ;)

http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/kreo-micro-changers-wave-3-at-retail/28122/

I looked for them at the Rosemont Target a couple of hours ago but didn't have any luck. The hunt continues!

Yeah, I saw the link about them popping up. My post was only to inform people that they now showing up in IL. That target is one of my usual stops so I am disapointed I missed out on a brand new box

No new kreons, but the willowbrook target had what looked like a fresh case of the new beast hunter deluxes out. Several arcee's, several vertebreak's, and 1 knockout

I have seen the wave 2 Kreons starting to show up at toys R us's. Targets seemed to have gotten 1 box in early July and that was about it. I have no clue if Walmarts carry these guys or not.

Found the wave 3 Kreons at the broadview Target yesterday. Only ones missing were sharkticon and thrust. I picked em all up except for, what I beleive was a Nemesis Prime.

They also had an IDW Trailcutter and Bumblebee

Hillside target had several of the wreckers. They had top spin, twin twist, and whirl. I picked up impactor for myself. I know he is the wrong color and I know he is on the sub par onslaught mold, but god do I love that head sculpt.

Orland Park Target has a few Beast Hunters Dragons and figures.
Plus, Starscream with Waspinator targetmaster. This was only one I seen.

Quake Collectable West has G2 Devastator. It is the separate 6 individual figures that make up Devastator. Also, it is sealed.

Quake also has Beast Wars combiner Tripredacus(in box).

I meant to mention yesterday that I saw an entire case of the IDW Generations Wave 1 figures at the Rosemont Target. If I remember correctly, they also had the Legends Starscream and Megatron packs as well.

Schaumburg Target on Schaumburg and Barrington had all four of the IDW Generations Wave 1, all 3 Triplechangers, at least Legends Starscream (I can't remember if Megatron was there or not), and several new Legions class figures (Air Vehicon, Blight, and Windrazor).

I haven't seen the wave 2 Target exclusives yet.

I was at Quake West tonight. I didn't see Devastator ... I must have overlooked it or someone had bought it already. I did see Tripredacus and BotCon Shokoract. I grabbed some of the bagged Transformers figures from the back of the store which included two more Vehicons for my ever growing Vehicon army and an extra Airachnid for me to do her spider mode properly.

Not sure if this matters with the news that Costco may have Metroplex at $80, but I saw 2 Metroplex's at the North Riverside Toys R Us. They were still in the brown box above the shelf marked at $129.99
