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!

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.

In Lawrence, the two Wal-Marts have the entire first two waves of ROTF figures between them. (One has Wave 1, while the other has Wave 2)

Hey all. 'Nother KS dweller here! Sorry, I've found a Bruticus Maximus, but I'm like 6 hrs. from Topeka, 45 min. from the Colorado border. :) They have 6 Bruticus Maximus' as of yesterday.

I've also seen HA Sideswipe, Supreme Devastator, Ultimate Bumblebee on clearance for $80.00, and Shadowblade Megatron, Skywarp, and Ramjet, all three for $20.00 in the Gargen City Wal-Mart.

The Target in Garden (30 min. in the direction of Topeka for me, 65 min. from Colorado border) had RPMs (I got Optimus), Battle Chargers, and 2 Superions. Hope this has been helpful. :)

Well, that at least shows that they've reached Ks. Hopefully the Wichita area will be stocking them anytime now.

Anyone seen the Universe Legends pack or Warriors From Three Worlds mulitpacks yet? I don's have many Mini-Cons - need more. I have Scattorshot, but it'd be worth it to pick up Repugnus and Ransack GTS. I'll look at the Walgreens if I can, but I've only seen ROTF and leftover Animated stuff here. Also, I'd like to find Legends Rodimus and Legends Bumblebee. A Deluxe Hot Shot or Smokescreen would be nice too. Also, I've never seen Ultra Predacon Bruticus around here. Oh, and our Target never had the Legends 5-packs or Dirge, Roadbuster, Springer, Ratbat two-packs. And I only saw Universe Vector Prime once, and I couldn't get him. I'd really like to have him. :)
And the list goes on, and on, and...

Unfortunately, we are in the same boat. The only things on the shelf are ROTF and left over animated deluxes. All the universe product seems to have dissipated. I never saw vector prime, predacon bruticus, or inferno...perhaps TRU still has some universe stock but its unlikely(speaking of, I never saw Unicron either...that one makes me sad) and with the current construction on kellog its hardly worth the trip.

As a note for our lurkers, yeah i know you're out there...I feel vindicated in saying the only target in wichita/Derby that currently has Bruticus Maximus stocked is the one on S. Armour rd by Towne east sq.

North maize rd had one, purchased by me, but has plenty of Superion. Ridge rd. also has a number of Superions...so if anyone is still in need of him, there ya go. Both had HA sideswipe as well.

All the targets seem to be behind on waves of deluxes/voyagers and leaders.

I've been hunting bruticus, so i haven't checked the status of Walmart's stock.

Derby walmart currently has one Leader jetfire on the shelf if anybody is still looking.

Derby Dillons Marketplace has some universe dinobot, ratchet, smokescreen, and hotshot...not seeing those on the shelves anymore elsewhere so I suppose it's worth mentioning.

As for Wichita:

21st and maize walmart has 1 gears

West Kellog walmart has 1 leader jetfire and 2 ice cream trucks.

Kellog and Greenwich didn't have anything of interest, and I didn't make it to N. Rock rd

Gears and Thrust are in Garden City Walmart now. RPM Devastator racetrack at both Walmart and Target. No Universe Ultras or anything else besides ROTF.

EDIT: Fearswoop is available now.

DOUBLE EDIT: Blowpipe/Sideways and Universe Hardhead and Skyfall in Liberal. MASTERPIECE SKYWARP in Garden City.
