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... :-( )

Found Cyberverse Commander Ironhide and Dreadwing at the ToysRUs in Lafayette today. There were none left on the shelves after I bought them.

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!

TRU @ Vets - picked up Ironhide and Knock-Out. Out of the new waves, there are only two Hot Shots left (someone must've gotten the Vehicon). Also a Ratchet and Arcee (Deluxes) if anyone is still looking.

Target on Vets didn't have anything new.

Stopped at TRU on Vets today to see if Prime Vehicon or Knockout made it in. No such luck, sadly. However, I happened find Rescue Bots Boulder there. There were two and I only grabbed one, so if anyone's interested in this hard to find figure, he's there.

I know most collectors aren't into Rescue Bots, but I can't get enough of these guys. Now that I FINALLY found Boulder, I've completed the Rescue Bots line WITHOUT having to resort to eBay!

Last night, I picked up Voyager Starscream from Wal-Mart on Manhattan Blvd (Harvey), but didn't see any Bulkheads, or any of the newest Deluxe or Cyberverse figures.

This evening, on my way home from Baton Rouge, I stopped by Wal-Mart in the Siegen Marketplace and picked up both DOTM Darksteel and Air Raid at discount. There is one Darksteel left.

Got off work a little early and went to the following stores:

Target in Kenner - Nothing new
Walmart in Kenner - Nothing new
Walmart on Vets - Nothing new
Target on Vets - Nothing new
TRU on Vets - Nothing new
Walmart on Judge Perez (Chalmette) - Nothing new

Kinda wondering just when these Wave 3 figures will show up... I'm very tempted to just buy a Vehicon on eBay to save myself the gas money.

I would try TRU tomorrow, they get their new shipments on Wednesdays.

Regarding Vehicon, I'm seeing buy it now for $39.99. My suggestion is to wait it out at least until the end of June, because we're just seeing these waves hit around here the past few weeks. People were complaining about Wave 1's Soundwave and Wave 2's Arcee and Ratchet, and now they're a lot easier to find on shelves (just not abundantly).

Patience (and maybe a friendly site-member) is key to victory.

Very true. I'm just a little gun shy regarding buying figures that I really want. I mean, with Hasbro's recent poor distribution trends and the fact that several figures that were "promised" to fans were just outright cancelled, I'm a little tired of paying out the ass on eBay because I was being patient waiting for popular figures.

But you're right, deep down I don't think Vehicon will suffer the same fate as RTS Windcharger...

Stopped at the Target on Vets and found the latest wave of Botshots (Wave 3). Picked up Jetfire, Lockdown, Topspin, and Thundercracker. There were a few left, but not many. Also saw Cyberverse Ironhide there but left him since I was looking for Dreadwind.

On my way to Walmart on Vets with the missus. I'll let you guys know if I find anything new.

*EDIT*

Just got back from Walmart. I saw a Voyager Bulkhead, but that's it. I guess that's good news though. Wave 3 Deluxes can't be too far behind.

Little victory this evening. Visiting some friends in BR, on my way out I stopped at the Wal-Mart on College. Someone put out a brand new case of PRiD Deluxes, and I got a Vehicon. About to open him in a bit.

What this means to the rest of you: there are 2 Hot Shots and 2 Knock Outs there. Did not see Voyager Bulkhead or Starscream, nor did I see CV Ironhide or Dreadwing (want!).

I might try to find that Bulkhead Wolfy left behind earlier, but not sure what the day will bring.

Happy Memorial Day everyone!

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.
