wichita: walmart 21st N. and maize had both long arm and payload. I left them both as my interest in the movie toys is wanning fast. also a few ult. bb amd cybertron primus. classics dev, and a few cyb. deluxes.

walmart pawnee and broadway: a few older deluxes: swindle, brawl, wreckage. voyager ss and ironhide, titanium ss and titanium rid prime. classics dev and classics prime. There was also a two pack i hadn't seen before that was a mini movie prime and twisty torso prime from the classics prime/megs two pack.

I have yet to see any Long Arms or Dropkicks in the Lawrence-Topeka metropolis (The only Payload I've seen, I purchased) Those are really the only two I want to basically finish off my collection of movie toys. I'll have to do some searching tomorrow...maybe I'll get lucky.

Lawrence Wal-Mart has a lot of Classic Prime, MP Prime, Classics Jet-Fire, and the last wave of Alternators, but their movie figures are severely lacking. I'll have to do the rounds in Topeka tomorrow. I've just about given up on Targets, they never have anything.

Thanks for the updates.

Wow..the Target in Lawrence had exactly one The Fallen as well. I bought it though....pretty sweet.

I am looking for Thundercracker now. I saw him at the Lawrence Wal-Mart about two weeks ago. I had him in my hand, and thought 'nah, don't want him', get home, then thought: 'Why didn't I buy him??'

Then, naturally, I go back the next day and he's gone.

Well, Transformer-wise, Lawrence and Topeka suck. I made the usual rounds in Topeka on Thursday, and the only thing I could really find are Movie Voyager Optimus and Megatron, which neither of them I want. I did find some nice Titanium figures at Target, Sunstorm and Ultra Maguns, but I didn't buy either.

I did the Lawrence rounds this morning, and I bought a Jetfire Titanium at Target, but that's about it. Nothing else exciting anywhere. There are no deluxes anywhere to be found.

So I am still looking for (but not in desperate need of) Dropkick, Longarm, and Thundercracker.

Personal wise, Lawrence life is good!

So, we're down to two in the thread, huh? Any clue why the other dude got banned?

To my knowledge, no. I know Lawrence has some comic shops that sell some older toys, but no Transformers. I can't say I've seen any older toy or hobby stores in the areas I frequent.

However, I am new to the Kansas area, so it may just be that I am looking in the wrong places. But I will try to keep my eyes open.

The Wal-Mart in Lawrence finally restocked deluxes. I picked up a DropKick, but sadly they didn't have Longarm. They had Brawl, Bonecrusher, Swindle, and Dreadwing, along with about 5 or so DropKicks. So...be on the lookout in Wichita.

yeah, wichita is still pretty dry. But i stepped into the Derby walmart the other day and they had just about every deluxe except for bb, barricade, and arcee. I'm still debating on dropkick and longarm... Only voyager was ratchet but i'm hoping to get my hands on the best buy version.

Every Wal-Mart around here seems to have restocked. Lawrence had deluxes a few days ago, and both Wal-Mart's I go to in Topeka restocked as well.

I finally was able to complete my movie collection (all I wanted at least). I got Dropkick on the weekend, Thundercracker on Monday, and I finally found Longarm today. Sooo...until the little Sector 7 Dune Buggy comes out, I think I am done hunting for awhile.

As for Dropkick and Longarm...both are actually pretty good figures. I would give the nod to Dropkick though. He's a pretty bad ass looking robot. But honestly, both are worth it.

Well...the Lawrence Wal-Mart has voyager Thundercracker..2 of them if I recall.

I've seen 08 Bumblebee (by himself) only once recently in the Topeka Wal-Mart, but I'd say your best bet is to go to a Target, and get the Evolution of a Hero set. The Lawrence Target had about 6 sets of them a little over a week ago.

I haven't seen Leader Prime or Leader Megatron since early August, and that was at the Topeka Target. Can't say I've seen too many Voyager Prime's around either. I've seen two before, one in Lawrence, and one in Topeka, but that was about a month ago.

Hope it helps

To my knowledge no...

but..

I haven't actually been to a Kohl's since I got my 08 Bumblebee there back around mid-August. So, they could actually sell Voyagers, but my guess is they aren't

oh because i heard someone say they found voyager prime on the floor at a kohls toy display. of course around me, like when a new popular figure comes out, such as 08 bb its gone before i can get it. it gets very frustrating finding new figures.

well some of the wal-marts here in wichita still have leader primes and megs. But it would be cheaper to order them and pay shipping than to take the time/gas to drive here.

I need to check around Lawrence to see if they have him there. Not that I am going to buy him, but I am curious to see what all the fuss is about.

Well, I finally got a hold of all the new AllSpark molds. I found Landmine and Stockade at the Lawrence Wal-Mart, and I got Incinerator at the Topeka Wal-Mart. The Topeka Wal-Mart had a huge stock of All-Spark deluxes, but the Incinerator was the last voyager they had.

All very nice figures!
