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).

I saw a few Gears figures at the Walmart on Vets yesterday.

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...

Went back to the same Target today. They laid out the generations voyagers, legends and deluxes. Plenty of Voyager and Legends action to be had but the deluxes were badly picked over, only a Thrust and WFC BB left.

Masterpiece Grimlock spotted at Baton Rouge TRU. There were two left when I got there. The cashier asked if they were new because she sold three others in the one hour she had been on the clock! There was one left as of 7pm, good luck! On a side note, seriously there must be some BR trans fans reading the site, speak up! :)

Literally just got out of the TRU on Vets and found 2 MP Grimlocks. I bought one and there's just one remaining. Better get your ass out there Cyber Bishop! :D

Just got back from TRU hoping to find Animated Rodimus and Ironhide, no dice. However, TRU must have restocked on their MP Grimlocks, because there were three just sitting there. So yea, to anyone's who's interested, he should still be there.

Also, I went to Target to pick up some stuff for my classroom and saw that they completely restocked their Transformers isle. The exclusive 2 packs are there, as well as the HA Bumblebee with Sam's alternate outfit. There was 1 HA Jazz, but I picked him up.

The Target 2 packs actually look REALLY good with those loud and crazy color schemes. I'm seriously considering the packs that include Barricade and Tailwind because they have matching Japanese law enforcement paint jobs.

WolfDawg, what area are you from? I'll be heading to Monroe tomorrow on business for LSU so I'll be checking the TRU up there as well for Ani-Rodimus and Ironhide.

I live in Metairie (but I'm from New Orleans, which is like 10 minutes away). I go to Baton Rouge almost once a week though because my fiance's family lives there. Most (if not all) of my in store purchases are from stores that are on Veterans Highway (AKA Vets) which is basically the main street of Metairie.

Ha I'm the opposite, in BR but hit Metairie to see my family in St. Bernard every other week. Pre-K I used to have a nice little toy run starting with the NOLA-E TRU, then heading out to West Esplanade and working my way down vets hitting every store in sight. I didn't once see a Mindwipe out here but that Big-K sure came through for me!

Yea, pre-Katrina I used to hit up that TRU in the East all the time. That's where I got my Beast Wars and Armada fix Lol. These days, though, the only place to find Transformers is on Veterans. A few months ago, I had never seens a Mindwipe at all (which is why I ordered mine from Hasbro), but now the poor guy seems to be shelf-warming at K-Marts around here.

When I visit my future in-laws in BR, I never go hunting because I never really find anything. But maybe it's because I don't know my way around BR that well (I stick to the area around Siegen).
