Stopped by the following places today:
TRU on Vets: Nothing new
Target on Vets: Nothing new
KMart on Vets: Nothing new
Wal-mart on Vets: Bulkhead was gone; So nothing new

On a side note; I did find the KRE-O Optimus Prime Kreon that has the open chest sticker. It was in a clearence bin for $1.25 at the KMART on vets. 3 of em left.

I happened to pop by a few stores in Metairie and didn't see anything new. I'm shocked the Parish had new stuff as they're usually pretty barren. On a side note, I had some guy pull up next to me right after I left Wal Mart, call me "boy" and threaten to shoot me for cutting him off on a one way street (which, oddly, never happened). When I asked "What the f*** are you talking about ass****?!" He sped off rambling on about lynching me... Ah, good ol' Southern racism. Gotta love it, lol.

Nabbed a Knock out from the Clearview Super Wal mart.. After opening him and transforming him I think I will leave him in bot mode and display him..
I should have picked up the Vehicon... Oh well I will get one eventually..

That sucks that that guy said that to you.. Kind of funny because last week while I was walking around the french market for lunch a group of kids called me a stupid looking "cracker and "white faggot" (no offense to anyone, just reporting what I was called) for not giving them money (they were tap dancing next to a building)..

racism definitely sucks.

Yea, it definitely sucks CB. What sucks even more is the fact that there's a good chance those kids were some of my students. We've recently heard about some of the school's students hanging out in the quarters, tap dancing for money, and harassing tourists... With cases like that, I just have to blame the parents.

Also, speaking of things sucking, it sucks that you passed on Vehicon dude! He's such an awesome figure; definitely one of the better (and cheaper) Transformers I've got this year. Though I did win an MISB G2 Redux Ramjet for 40 bucks a few nights ago. Maybe he (and the Wingblade Animated Prime I have coming to me) will wow me more than Vehicon. Doubt it though.

Went to the TRU on Vets and saw a lone Dead End hiding behind like 5 Bumblebees. I didn't get him though. The only figure I'm remotely interested in is Airachnid...and that's only because I want to complete the original cast.

Saw Wheeljack's Cyberverse set at the Walmart on Vets. Didn't pick it up so it might be there (it was only one).

Also saw Airachnid, several Knockouts, and a few Hotshots at the Target on Vets. I picked up the Airachnid (very underwhelmed...).

Lastly, I saw a Vehicon, Bulkhead, and Starscream at the K-Mart in Harahan (the one near the Elmwood Theatre). Didn't get any of those figures so they may be there.

Yesterday I found at the Wal-Mart in Algiers: Wheeljack and Knock Out cyberverse sets, some of the new BotShots (I picked up a T-cracker), Stealth Bumblebee, and Dead End... which means Airachnid WAS there, but not by the time I showed it. 'Tis okay, I ordered the revision set with 2 Vehicons, so I know I'll have an Airarchnid and the other new figures (cept Stealth BB) soon enough.

The Target on Manhattan lingered with the Yellow Plague and CJ. Hoping to find Ultra Magnus and Dreadwing at some point.

I'd also like to add that the new Lego Monster Hunters sets are out, and they are just amazingly fun! Picked up the Vampyre Hearse, and will probably split the huge Haunted Mansion with my girlie sometime soon.

I'm guessing no one has spotted the FOC figures yet, huh? I checked the Target, TRU, and Walmart on Vets Sunday and didn't find a thing. I also stopped by the Walmart on Tchoupatoulas yesterday and the only notable figures I saw were the 2 new Cyberverse sets (Drill and Starhammer).

I think I'll check the Target in Kenner today because I REALLY want FOC Shockwave. Couldn't care less about Prime and Jazz though.

New Generations at Target on Millerville I12 exit. They're in the back though. I just took one Shockwave.

Went to Target on Vets and the on in Kenner. Nothing. Looks like their TF shelves have been raided or something. I gave them the DPCI for the FoC figures and they said they're not in stock or something.

TrU on Vets also has nothing but BB's and Voyager Primes.

Thanks for the heads up, CB. I went to TRU yesterday and they were picked clean of Shockwaves, though. Tons of FoC Primes and Jazzes...but no Shockwaves... :sad:

I guess it wasn't a wasted trip because they had the new Kreo sets. Got the Vehicon and Cliffjumper set as well as the set that contains Wheeljack and Knockout. Devastator looks awesome, but I can't justify paying almost 100 bucks for him. Maybe when he (inevitably) goes on sale...

Thanks for the heads up. I picked up OP and Jazz. Although I'm thinking that I won't buy TFs from TRU anymore. $32.60 for 2 small deluxe sized TFs is just way too much money.

I went to the Marrero TRU last Thursday and only saw FOC Jazz. Very unimpressive in-person, but I've got one coming to me once the Bruticus wave gets shipped. Too bad I still have to hunt for Shockwave.

Since a few of you have been visiting your local TRUs, I'd just like to mention that if you sign up for their rewards card, you get several discounts via e-mail and in postal mail. I just used a 20% off single item to get that LEGO Vampyre's Mansion I mentioned last time. I can't wait to open it up and build. Anyways, something like this helps if you find a few new figures (or the new Kre-os being sighted) and makes purchasing more inline with Walmarts/Targets/K-Marts.

Try going to their website and validating your information or give them your e-mail address. I rarely get offers through the mail anymore (but did get a catalog earlier this month with two nice coupons), but it seems I get e-mail from them 1-2x a week. The e-mail had a multi-purpose coupon depending on what/how much you purchased, and I got 20% off a single $75+ item.

Just got back from Target on Manhattan, no new TFs but I did pick up my second Kre-o Megatron. I'd like to keep this one in alt mode and make a trailer for him. Walmart on Manhattan I finally found (and picked up) Cyberverse Ultra Magnus and Dreadwing. No more of these in stock, but that Nightwatch Optimus is still on the shelves. Nothing recent from PRID. I also picked up LEGO Wolverine's Chopper Showdown set with Deadpool. I'm looking forward to the new Legends DP, especially the X-Force version. Also picked up a 3-tier white spice rack to better my shelved figures.

FINALLY got my hands on a Fall of Cyberton Shockwave. I went to the Target on Vets and had to give them the DPCI. They pulled a bunch of figures from the back, so they should be on the pegs by now. Not sure how many Shockwaves there are to a case, but I only bought one and left. It makes no sense to me how they can have barren pegs, yet a ton of stock in the back.

Anyways, Shockwave is an awesome figure. But, is it just me or does the plastic quality kinda...suck? I'm posing him with my United Darkside Megatron and Black Convoy and the quality difference is like night and day. Almost feels like a plastic a 3rd party company would use. :???:

Just got back from my bi-weekly trip to Metairie.

TRU on Vets had an Airarchnid, 2x Stealth Bumblebee, 2x Dead End. No FOC in stock. Also had Kre-o Devastator and the Knock-Out/Wheeljack set.

K-Mart on Vets had the rest of the new Kre-O sets, some older PRID figures, both Prime and BB weaponizers, and the Optimus Maximus set.

If anyone wants to hook me up with FOC Shockwave, I'd be very appreciative.

Aww man, sucks that I didn't know you were interested in Shockwave. I had Target open a box for me on Tuesday and there was an extra Shockwave in there. Had I known you wanted it, I would have bought it for ya. I went back to Target today to see if they had done their fall reset (they didn't) and if they had the new Kreo blind bags (again, they didn't) and all they had in the way of FoC were 2 Jazzes and a Prime. I'll keep an eye out for Shockwave for ya since I'm still going to be hunting down those Kreo blind bags.

Thanks for the assist, just wanted to thank you for the offer and to announce I'm no longer on the hunt for Shockwave. BBTS just released news about the FOC case revision with all Combaticons and one of each OP, Jazz, and Shockwave. So, I'll have to wait another month, but no problem with that since I already had the case reserved.

I didn't do any hunting this weekend, but was floored by the announcements that came out of TFCon.

No problem, glad to hear you're going to be getting the figures you want. I've still been hunting for those blind bags and have yet to find them or any sign of new shipments containing FoC Shockwave. It's weird. It's like the stores in this area got ONE shot at FoC wave 1 and they disappeared into obscurity.
