For anyone looking for Dinobot in the New Orleans area, there's hope!! I found ONE Dinobot at the Walmart in Elmwood. I bought the last one, but they were restocking the isle so there are probably more there now. There were also two Bluestreaks. I haven't seen either ANYWHERE else.

I'm still keeping an eye out for Universe Vector Prime and Inferno.

I've been looking all over for Animated Waspinator and Samurai Prowl. It seems these guys are out damn near everywhere else. Has anyone had any luck finding these two? I've also yet to find Classics Rodimus, Cosmos or Warpath.

I did, however, find an Atomic Lugnut at the Target in the Clearview Mall. I didn't pick it up and it appears to be a shelfwarmer.

Geez. this place is dead. Am I the only guy in New Orleans (or Louisiana, for that matter) interested in Transformers?!

Anyway, for the possible New Orleanian lurkers out there, I have great news.

Walmart on Veterans had 2 Waspinators and 2 Samurai Prowls. I got one of each so there may be one left of each. There was also 1 Inferno and 1 Leo Prime. They also had Cosmos, Wheelie, Warpath and Rodimus Legends figures. I got the last Warpath though.

Toys R Us on Veterans had wave 1 of TF Mighty Muggs (but it was only 1 of each figure). I got Soundwave, so Prime, Megs and BB may still be there.

That's all I got. Target in Clearview still only had Atomic Lugnut. Doesn't seem like anyone wants the guy, lol.

I have had a lot of luck with the sightings in the past week. The Wal-Marts in the Pineville/Alexandria area have gotten TFA Waspinator and Samurai Prowl and also the new legend figures. I also found Leo Prime in Target in Alexandria. Also received my silver Alternity Convoy from BBTS this past Friday. I had also gotten Inferno a few weeks ago; just hadn't updated my sightings.

Back again...a few months later. Found the ROTF at every Walmart, Target and TRU I went to. However, the TRU on Veterans had 1 Stratosphere and 1 Mixmaster. No sign of Voyage Megs though. I checked the Clearview Target and the Target on the Westbank and there were no Superion sets. I wonder what's up with that. Both Targets had The Fallen and Wave 2 Deluxes though.

You mean G1 Reissues? I haven't seen those at TRU in years. I don't think they even stock them in the stores anymore. You may want to try TRU's online catalog for that dude.

I heard that a Target in Lafayette had ROTF Leader Jetfire. I haven't seen him at all here in New Orleans (I checked TRU, every Walmart, and every Target). I happened to be in Baton Rouge with my girlfriend and convinced her to stop at the Target off Siegen, STILL no luck. I swear we get everything last in the South... :evil:

Well I saw Superion at the Target on Veterans. There are tons of that set there and they don't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon.

On another note, I stopped in the Kmart on Vets and saw two Human Alliance Bumblebees. One's box was opened, but the other is there. I thought about getting it, but I have too many versions of movie BB as it is. I'm waiting to see if there's going to be an HA Jolt.

FINALLY found a Leader Jetfire at the new Walmart on Veterans. There were 3 that I saw, and I grabbed one, so there should be 2 left. Great figure. :grin:

More news from New Orleans (man, there aren't many N.O. TF Fans...); I found the ice cream truck twins at Target on Veterans (only 2). There were also 3 Deadends and a couple of the Robot Hero packs (the one with the big The Fallen figure and some other one).

Also, there were tons of Leader Jetfires at either TRU or Target.

Hey guys, just a word from Baton Rouge. The TRU on Airline (off the I-12 exit) has a ton of WFC Optimus and Bumblebee toys. No luck on Drift, Thrust or Darkmount. Has anyone been to the TRU in Metaire or Lafayette today? I'm thinking of driving to one or the other after work to check it out. The Met TRU usually comes through for me though...

Just got back from the TRU on Veterans in Metaire. They had a ton of WFC Bumblebee and Optimus figures. After asking around I was able to find out that they ONLY put out WFC Bumblebee and Prime because of the WFC release. They had several Thrust and Dirge figures in the back and graciously pulled a few out for me. There are several still left!

More good news from the TRU on Veterans. HFTD wave 1 deluxes are there as well as wave 1 Voyagers. I didn't see Leader Starscream though (but I honestly didn't look that hard since I don't want him). Also, the Power Core Combiners are there as well. Wave 1 2 packs and 5 packs both. PCC are pretty nifty little guys.

TRU in Baton Rouge on Airline apparently HAD the first wave of Generations, HFTD Deluxe and Voyagers and PCC's but all of the good molds were taken. No Thrust, Seaspray, Drift, or PCC's. There's def a few collectors up here who are able to get out to the stores before I am. Still haven't seen a ROTF Mindwipe up here but TONS of Defender Primes... grr...
