Found the Cyberverse Prime Commanders at the Walmart in Elmwood. There weren't very many, and I confess that I bought Megatron, Bulkhead, Prime, and Starscream. There's just one Cyberverse Commander Prime left, but the lady who worked there said they were going to get another shipment Tuesday.

I'm still not having any luck finding Voyager Megatron either. Everywhere I go has the Voyager Optimus figure, but no Megatron. It's getting a little annoying...

Thanks for the heads up Sith. I didn't see any Voyager Megatrons at the TRU on Vets, but I did manage to find the last Megatron at the Walmart on Vets. As a bonus, I also snagged the last Legends Class Vehicon!

Glad I could help. I consider it a positive to get any toy at WM/Target instead of TRU. TRU prices are ridculous.

Has anyone seen any PRID Ratchet figures? I checked Target and TRU last night and didn't see anything noteworthy. Ratchet is the last figure I need to complete the main Autobot cast.

Anyone here planning on attending BotCon this year and wants to road trip? I'm planning on heading up Thursday morning, leave Sunday afternoon. Please PM if interested, serious inquiries only.

On topic, I finally picked up Cyberverse TFP Arcee, Ratchet, and Vehicon this past Friday at he Algiers Wal-Mart. They had a few more BB and CJs, and sprinked in some of the Deluxe figures and Voyager Prime. Looking forward to Arcee and Ratchet, but more excited to know when the Takara versions start shipping (pre-ordered the whole Dlx/Voyager line back in Jan or Feb).

Hey guys, I know this isn't really a Transformers sighting, but if any of you happen to pass by the Power Rangers Samurai section of your stores, keep an eye out for the Octozord with the Gold Ranger. This is the one toy keeping my stepson from putting together the ridiculous Gigazord and I refuse to pay $50+ on eBay for it.

As for Baton Rouge sightings, TF Prime has been trickling in very slowly here. Only a handful of the RID deluxes have been spotted, though oddly there's PLENTY of Bumblebee to go around. The Cyberverse toys and Voyagers are at just about every store in the area now.

Now I'm just holding out for Generations Shockwave.

Just picked up Dlx Ratchet at Target on Vets; now I need to find Arcee. There are still BB, Cliff, Wheeljack, and 1 Soundwave if anyone is interested.

TRU on Vets had some Voyager Primes, Dlx BBs, and all 4 Cyberverse Commanders for $11.99 each, but only 1 each of Bulkhead, Megatron, and Starscream. I didn't pick them up because I'm hoping to wait until the other stores carry them for $9.99.

Still haven't managed to find PRID Ratchet or PRID Arcee. Target on Vets has nothing but the usual millions of BB's and Primes. TRU on Vets also showed no sign of PRID Wave 2. There were, of course, tons of Primes and BB's. I did see ONE lone Megatron though.

For anyone interested in the Rescue Bots, though, TRU on Vets had the elusive Blades figure. I got one, so there should be one left.

I hear ya Sith. I went to the TRU on Vets last night and saw no sign of Arcee or Ratchet (the usual Bumble and Optimus stuff shelves though). Then I went to the Target on Vets and STILL didn't see any sign of those two figures.

Interestingly enough, though, was that while I was in TRU, I noticed a guy eyeing some of the TF figures and looking just as disappointed as I was. Then when I went to the Target on Vets, I saw the same guy in the TF aisle looking equally disappointed at the lack of new PRID merchandise there as well. I have to ask, was that you, Sith? If so, I was the black guy there in khakis and a grey shirt with the angry look of "wasted time" on his face, lol.

Nah, I didn't go looking for TFs that night. But the dissappointed face thing sounds just like me. When I go out looking I'll usually hit up every Target/TRU/Walmart in Metairie, Kenner, and Harahan. So I'm usually pretty pissed if I come out empty handed lol. Its funny that you mention see'ing someone though. A few weeks ago I saw a guy at Vets Target, then TRU, then Esplanade Target. He didn't match your description though. Might have been the same guy you saw.

Ah, well that must have been another collector then. As I left Target, I sort of kicked myself for not making small talk with the guy. I've never met another collector in person.

Oh, and I also FINALLY found Ratchet and Arcee at the Esplanade Target. I got the last two, though. And I have to agree with what CB said about the two figures. Arcee is surprisingly good...I actually prefer the PRID version to my FE version who will now forever be in Alt mode. Ratchet, while still a pretty good figure, is really small. The lack of paint aps don't help the figure either, but I still think it was a worthy purchase if only to complete my TF Prime Autobot cast.

Picked up Cyberverse Commanders OP, Megatron, and Starscream at the Target on Vets last night. They were at the beginning of the aisle where the TFs reside, and I almost passed them up. Now all I need is Bulkhead. Left an OP, and they have lots of the 1st wave Deluxe figures available except Soundwave. Still on the look out for Deluxe Arcee.

If any of you are on the fence about Kre-o sets (or need to complete your collection), the local Wal-Marts have clearanced the following:

Optimus and Sentinel - $30/ea
Megatron and Starscream - $20/ea

The other sets have not been discounted yet, and I'm not sure why. I had a lot of fun building some of these guys, and took the opportunity to get a 2nd SS set so I can display both robot and alt modes together.

For anyone in Lafayette, the Walmart on Pinhook had Kreo Optimus Prime (deluxe) on clearance for $10 last time I was there. Picked one up, and it's pretty cool.

For those in Lafayette looking for a deluxe Ratchet, the ToysRUs has a single Ratchet. I left the store at 9:30 PM (the closing time). I purchased the Arcee, but had already ordered Ratchet from ToysRUs.com. I wish luck to anyone who wishes to get it tomorrow. They also had every other PRID figure (wave 1: deluxe, voyager, cyberverse commander, and cyberverse legion), so if you're looking for anything in particular and don't mind paying a little more, they'll be there tomorrow.

I am going to Baton Rouge today for a charity event with the 501st Legion and I plan on hitting a couple of stores so if I come across either I will pick them up and let you guys that need them know.

Finally got a Cyberverse Bulkhead at the TRU on Veterans. I didn't notice if there was more than 1, but the other 3 figures are there and they are on sale for $9.99 (but no sale tag present). The voyager OP and Megs are also on sale for $21.99, but Targets and Wal-Marts have them for $19.99.

Also picked up Deluxe Arcee at the Target on Vets. No more left, nor any Ratchets.

Stopped at the TRU on Vets. Saw quite a few Cyberverse Vehicons for anyone interested in troop building, and there were also 2 Soundwaves. The only other notable transformer I saw there was PRID Arcee (no Ratchets). I didn't buy anything, so everything should still be there. I was looking to see if Wave 3 had showed up. Can't wait to get my hands on Knockout and Vehicon.

Spotted one each of PRID Arcee and Ratchet at the Behrman Wal-Mart (Algiers), but nothing else of note. Unless you are one of those children that really want a voyager Optimus Prime because they are shelf-warming like it's Winter. There's also Dlx BB, Cliff, and Wheeljack. Only Cyberverse figure is a BB.

Happy Hunting!

Found new cyberverse and legion figures at Walmart on Vets today. The had Breakdown from the Prime line. Also had what looked like new legion figures from DOTM; Soundwave, Evac, and Another who's name I cant remember. But there packaging was the same as TF:Prime Cyberverse figs... weird.

Thanks for the heads up Sith. I'm tempted to do a bit of hunting today actually. I'll swing by the Walmart, Target, and TRU on Vets and let everyone know what it looks like. From what I understand, they usually restock on Mondays and/or Wednesdays. Hopefully, I'll come across Knockout and Vehicon... :-?

Update:

Well, it was a pretty rough day of hunting...

TRU on Vets - Had the new wave of Botshots. Didn't get any since I have no interest in them.
Target on Vets - 'Tis a sad sight walking down this store's toy aisle. It's like they don't even care enough about the aisle to even stock anymore...
Walmart on Vets - Saw a few Cyberverse Mirages and Soundwaves, no sign of Breakdown and Evac though (the two that I actually wanted... :-( )

Nothing in Lake Charles yet from the new waves. LOTS of deluxe BB, wheeljack, ratchet, etc, and cyberverse commander & legion at TRU, and a sprinkling of them at Target.

Also, Ross & Marshall's have a couple of Generations Wheeljack at $7.99.

Wal-Mart in Sulphur has quite a few of the deluxe & cyberverse Prime toys, but none of the new ones.

Dark of the Moon is everywhere. If you can't get it at clearance prices, you're paying too much!
