Dangit! That's the only one I wanted! Lol, I guess that's payback for taking that MP Prime you were eyeing. :lol:



Me too, I saw Megs the other day across the river and almost bought him.. It is all good about the MP prime though.. If I come across another I will put him in layaway..

I picked up that Megatron from Marrero TRU today. Shame the others weren't available or the deluxe GDOs, but I'm sure I'll have other opportunities in the near future.

Also, went to a Family Dollar and they had the last wave of DOTM deluxes for $5/ea, with a sale through Saturday BOGO 50% off. Picked up Specialist Ratchet in case I want to try my hand at an Ironfist upgrade. Lots of Air Raid and Darksteel sitting there.

Gen. Meyer, in Algiers (West Bank). However, it's probably worth checking out your local FD first.

As much as I drive around with my job Algiers is not that much out of the question to be honest.
I have to remember where they put it around my area though... LOL..

TRU on Siegen Ln has a GDO Swerve, Hoist, and Silverstreak...

And so many damn MP Thundercrackers on the shelf, it makes the Sweeps look like a small operation!!! Pretty much anyone in BR that needs one should be able to stop by and get one. More shipment tonight and tomorrow, so maybe more GDOs and MP Prime might show up, buy couldn't get a confirmation.

I stopped by the vets TRU @ lunchtime (still in front as I type this) and found a few things.

Restocked the following items
TF China Scouts (I only bought Dead End) and legends.
TF voyager figs (yes there is one Hot Spot so get over here and get it Wolf)
TF Prime deluxes (the wave with arachnid)
TF Prime 1st edition figs

Thanks for the heads up. However, when I got there, he was gone... #-o

I knew I should have checked the sightings thread yesterday...

No worries man. I actually picked up Megatron for the hell of it (and because I have a pretty big Neo G2 collection). I'm actually VERY pleased with him and he looks great in my display. Much better than United Tank Megatron. So yea, it wasn't a total waste. Megatron made the trip worth it. I sort of want to take a pic or two of him with my other Neo G2 figures, but I'm still waiting for my FoC Fruiticus (the big bad dudicus) to arrive.

Yeah, Robby Musso texted me a little while ago and told me.. But for $119... If they had any of the boxes uptop I could at least use the 99.99 tag on the side to price match..

Too rich for my blood with Christmas coming... I have 3 daughters and a wife to buy presents for..

Wow, I wonder when they increased MP Prime's price. I'm pretty sure I got mine for 99.99 plus tax. I will definitely say that he's worth the price of admission, though; even if that price is 120 bucks. Still, I understand where you're coming from, CB. I've been eying the Knight Morpher Starscream figure (the one based on his Hearts of Steel character) for a while now. But wifey and I have been saving so we can go on a late honeymoon to Las Vegas. Hell, I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to pay for that Ehobby G1 Shattered glass set I preordered at BBTS. :-(

I hope I'm doing this right and this is the correct place to add this. I just submitted a toy sighting, but it was for the old Toys R Us. That store has closed and moved across town in Baton Rouge.

Anyway I just picked up a MP Optimus at the new Toys R Us on North Mall Dr. off of Seigen Lane. I also added that store to the list, but it wasn't available to select yet.

There was an unopened case on the bottom shelf. I purchased one and put the case back behind a ton of MP Thundercrackers. Hope someone here finds it. And yes, it was hard to not purchase both of them.

Carytheone, this is the right place to post your findings. Welcome aboard!

This site also has the global sightings function, with selectable product and stores but I usually come here to see what's actually out and about. Good find with MP-10, I'm still waiting on my preorder from TRU's online site.

Passed by TRU today and they have the new Combaticon wave for the FoC figures. All five were there. I left them since I have the SDCC one and my G2 Fruiticus is currently on its way from BBTS. To be honest, though, the retail version looks a lot better in person than pictures led me to believe.

Also, there were a bunch of MP Primes, MP Thundercrackers, and a TON of GDO Legends figures.

Passed by TRU on Vets last night on my way back home, had a lot of GDO in stock too. I just waited a bit to post that because I was trying to give someone a head's up. Not sure what the stock looks like now, but pretty much everything except the GDO Deluxe figures so I think you can take a quick jog to see what's left. I asked a store clerk about the deluxes and she tried to look it up to no avail. However, my own experiment was in using TRU's website to look up "wheelie" = not found. Look up "transformers" and wheelie shows up on the system. I managed to nab a Springer online last night. Any of y'all find a Wheelie, let me know cuz that's the last GDO I need.

*edit* and just got my confirmation that TRU shipped MP-10! yay, don't have to pay an extra $20 to grab it. :KREMZEEK:

I saw the combaticons @ the Harahan super Wal mart this morn... I was going to pick up Brawl but with Christmas coming I need to save for my family's presents.
The colors did not really do it for me either..
