Hi Iowa TF fans. I noticed that Kmart has a sale going on. You can pick up Battle in Space for $15. Also Leader class is on sale for $40 and other class sizes were also on sale. I saw these at the Cedar Rapids location out near Westdale Mall.

Walmart in Marion,IA has Generations Scourge and Kup, They had 2 of each mixed in with the other Generations stuff.
They also had the Marvel Universe mixed wave with the likes of Grey Hulk, Skrull, Moon Knight, Punisher, Silver Surfer and several others in case you were looking to pick some of them up you previously passed on but would still like to get.

Check your local Gordmans. I have found HA Jazz and BB for $16.99 and ROTF voyagers for $12.99. I picked up voy Megatron, but they still have Stratosphere, Ratchet & The Fallen. These were found on 1st Ave in Cedar Rapids.

I finally found Hatchet at the Fort Dodge Target, what a cool little dude.
My first and probably only cyberverse figure.

Which got me to think that there are still three figures that are currently out that I have just simply not yet seen(although I don't really care it is fun to see new items),they are Leader IH and Voyagers SP an FBOP.

Kmart on Collins Rd Cedar Rapids has
Kreo Megatron for $13
Kreo Starscream for $11

Maybe it's a good deal for the Kreons? I don't buy these
but it looks like a deal.
They also has GIJoe Retaliation toys.
