Do you know any good places to pick up g1 or japanese figures in that area?



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.

wow, sorry it took me so long to respond. I hardly ever check this forum since so few kansans post. But the walmart at 21st and maize rd is still the only walmart in town that i have seen them.

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!

For those interested, I saw the K-mart exclusive minicon set today at the NW 24 HWY store.

All the Walmart exclusive deluxe movie allspark toys are at the NW store as well, including Fracture, the "Crasher" homage Mirage repaint.

Lawrence Wal-Mart has the Wave 3 Animated and Wave 2 Universe now. Although I think I got the last Swoop...everything else was there in doubles. And they're still $7.77.

I know someone who stocks the toys at N. Topeka Walmart. He said that they have recieved several cases of Universe deluxes in the last week but cannot put them out yet because they don't have the space for them yet.

Wichita seems up to date on all deluxes at the moment with wave 3 universe and wave whatever animated(swoop/sentinel). Nothing new on the voyager/leader class fronts.

Ok, I made my friend stock the new Universe deluxes a couple of days ago at the N. Topeka Walmart. They only had 2 cases (so, only 2 Ironhides minus the one I got). They're located on an endcap facing the north wall of the store (back of the department). There's a small section of them in the regular isle as well.

The AllSpark movie deluxes are on a separate endcap together with Animated Deluxes and there is another display with nothing but voyager(?) class Animated toys. They seem to be all over the place.

The Wal-Mart in Lawrence had a price reduction on the leader class toys. Instead of $40.00, they were $29. I sure am glad I held off on purchasing them til now!

Anyone seen Animated Ultra Magnus yet?

since talking to myself is fun...

Wichita walmart/target sightings...

Animated: Magnus, skywarp, shockwave. Deluxes are overstocked on the swoop/sentinel wave(not sure if that's the most recent), supreme op here and there.

Universe: cyclonus, hound, cheetahbotthing, starscream 8.0, and the previous waves all overstocked. Newest voyager i've seen is treadbolt.

Sorry about not posting any Kansas sightings, but I was actually back home in Pennsylvania for the holidays, and I just got back today. I will have to go make the Topeka-Lawrence rounds here soon and see what's all around. I did get Skywarp Animated though before I left.

Haven't been aound to any other stores lately, but N. Topeka Walmart is doing their toy reset. They just put out a few cases of deluxe Universe toys with Star Scream, Cyclonus, Hound / Ravage, Cheetor, and Dinobot. Price is back up to $9.96 though :(

**Edit** Correction: No Dinobot.
