Yah, they had one of each left. You wouldn't have been able to buy it anyway. Need a military or dependent ID to shop at the NEX. I can scoop them up for you Tuesday if they are still there.

BTW, which recruiting office? The Air Force one that's near the back gate?


Man, my BX never gets anything good.

Anyone having any luck finding Rattrap and Tankor in stores? BTR is full of nothing but Aoe... The new Walmart on Burbank was promising, but they just have Generations series 1 and 2 stuff. I bit the bullet and bought Rhinox and Whirl from TFsource since my local stores were overstocked on voyagers and of course, they're all shelf-warming now...

p.s. if Rattrap and Tankor start showing up, text me 225-252-0138, I'll gladly pay $5 overprice plush shipping!

Wal-Mart on College in BTR just did a full generations restock. Good news, I'll finally be able to get Double Dealer once I get paid... bad news, nothing but Starscreams, Minicons, Skywarps and Scoops :(

All I'm seeing is AoE and some Generations restock (FoC data disks?!?) - I did see Whirl for $17 at the Walmart in Watson though.

I almost stopped in Watson yesterday while helping my wife put up a for sale sign on one of her client's houses. Guess it's a good thing I didn't. I'm going to hit Port Allen and College again today at lunch. Burbank looked full of previous generations. Also, Target on Millersville is going through a huge clearance in the toy aisle, so hopefully we'll start seeing some movement there soon. Cary, if you spot any rattraps text or PM me. 225-252-0138.

As soon as I see that wave St retail, this will be the first place I go. I'm not interested in rattrap or tankor, so you don't have to worry about me nabbing them.

Speaking of MP, I'm on the prowl for well, Prowl.

I'm also hunting a second Legends Swerve for an art project. Yeah I know, good luck finding one of those at retail.

I'm in Golden Meadow this week. I'll post if I see anything around here, but it pretty slim pickings for retail options.

I'll post if I find MP Prowl since I'm looking for MP Sunstorm. I read somewhere that the new MP's were sighted in Louisiana, so I drove to the TrU on Vets today and found nothing. Apparently they changed the front aisle of the store from TF Movie stuff to Lego stuff. The Transformers section at TrU just looks like a sad sad place... :-(

Btr area is desolate as well. No MP's at tru... no new generations. Oddly a resurfacing of data discs at the denham wal mart though. If anyone is collecting hero mashers, tru had grimlock and swoop. Also romp and stomp grimlock was there for anyone looking.

Hell, most of the places I've checked, look like they are cancelling the TF line. I forgot to mention, I've seen a few combiner Kreons surfacing at various TJ Maxx locations.

Well, TrU HAD MP Prowl and Sunstorm... Went to the TrU on Vets and as soon as I hit the Transformers aisle, some chubby guy is there holding TWO freaking boxes of MP Sunstorms. I asked him why he was buying the two LAST ones and he said because it was buy one get one half off. Still kind of **** up, but I'm hoping he was at least one of those guys who likes to display one in bot mode and one in alt mode. Otherwise, I ran into my first scalper...

According to the manager, the MP's came in Friday evening, so I'm assuming someone got Prowl before I got there because I didn't see any.

TRU on Lapalco had MP Prowl Friday. A friend and I went after work and bought the last 2. Got em BOGO and split the cost. $55 a piece.

They must have come in to Vets TRU really late Friday evening because I was there at around 5:30pm and they didn't have any MPs at all.

Yea, that's what the manager told me. Said they put them out Friday night.

Sucks, because I went to the gym first, then stopped by TrU right after. Something told me to check TrU BEFORE I hit the gym...

Yea, I went to Mechacon today with a friend after he got some free passes and realizing I wouldn't be getting MP Sunstorm for about another week. Vendors had some really cool things at surprisingly reasonable prices. Also, I had no idea New Orleans had such a big cosplay scene. It was my first con ever and I'll definitely go next year with my daughter (she'll be 1 and a half by then). I wore a green ranger t-shirt, but I have a feeling next year my "costume" will be a little more elaborate. Thinking about dressing my daughter up as Gir and I can be Zim. Or maybe I can be a Pokemon Trainer and she'll be Pikachu or Mudkip.

My wife isn't amused, :lol:

Yea, I know you're in one of the Star Wars clubs from the pictures you post on Facebook. I didn't see you, and I was keeping an eye out for Storm Troopers. There were tons of people there, though. Way more than I imagined.
