Did a TON of driving today. I went to the Target in Slidell (a whole week late) trying to score Shockwave based on CB's tip with no luck. There was nothing of interest there

Went to Ross, Marshall's, and Burlington Coat Factory hoping to find PRID Magnus and all they had were Voyager Starscreams.

The TrU out there was fully stocked, though. Sadly, it was all old stuff. They had almost all the GDO's, 6 MP Thundercrackers, and a bunch of the old PRID Deluxes and Voyagers (though no Ultra Magnus...). The Walmart out there was pretty barren too.

I'm probably going to try my luck at Target, Walmart, Marshalls, Ross, and TrU in Metairie tomorrow. I'm just tired of all the driving. Since I live in Metairie, it took about 45 minutes to get to Slidell.

Wasn't a total waste of time, though. Non-TF related, I walked around the mall in Slidell and there's a new store called Just 2 Play with a bunch of a Retro games. Most were over priced, but I did manage to snag two of the PS2 .Hack games I had been looking for. Also got a GBA player for my Gamecube for 8 bucks. :grin:

Just left Target on Clearview, picked up a set of the new Autobot Data Discs(finally), one pair left. The Beast hunters deluxe figures are now $12.97 ea, but only have through Wave 2. Nothing else new (and no Shocky, sorry Wolfy).

Thanks for the heads up Necro. I finally managed to find Shockwave at the Walmart in Elmwood. There was one left when I bought him if anyone is interested. Also, I saw FOC Soundblaster at the Kmart in Elmwood. Didn't buy him because I'm still looking for Blaster.

I had to get a battery and terminal for my work car and I saw the Shockwave just sitting there all by it's lonesome...

Did a dcpi search on Target.com this morn for the generations... The only store that had them was the Target across the lake. I called gave the toy description and dcpi, she came back and told me that they had 2 of each. I asked her hold one for me and I shot across the Causeway to nab him.. Springer and 2 Blitzwings left on the shelf.

Springer was definitely worth the trip and is one of the BEST figures to come out in years.

Thanks for the head's up on that one CB. Hopefully I can pass over there today after work, if traffic isn't too bad. I honestly wasn't expecting to see these guys in New Orleans until mid June.

According to targets site when you search the dcpi# the Clearview store had them this morning, when I stopped over there for lunch (around 12:30) they were out, I checked the website again and it said that the kenner one had them.. I nabbed my Springer this past weekend in covington. Do NOT pass up Springer.. Blitzwing looks great but I will have to do the shoulder mod fix when I get home.

I nabbed the last Springer and Blitzwing from the target in Harvey this morning. Their both amazing; except for Blitzwings crappy shoulders. Will have to do that shoulder mod as well.

Yeah it works like a charm, it does not however make up for the crappy transformation, rubber nose that does not stick adequately in jet transformation not to mention the back portion that holds his arms/shoulders and "turret" swivel that pops off occasionally during transformation.. I will keep Blitz in a nice posed robot from..
Springer on the other hand is absolutely perfect (IMHO)...

Passed by the TRU, Target, and Walmart on Veterans this weekend and didn't see anything noteworthy. I also went to the Walmart on Tchopatoulas Sunday and didn't see anything there either.

I'm keeping an eye out for Beast Hunters Skystalker and Ultimate Predaking. 8)

BumbleBee has a broken arm socket right out of the package. He's such a neat little figure too. Will have to try to glue it back together.

Had to run to BR for work today. This afternoon I found 2 BH Voyager Shockwaves at TRU on Siegen, and a new box of Series 2 Kre-os at the Target down the way. I took a set for myself but there should be a complete set still there. Also picked up a Hun-Grr, what a cute lil fella! He's so small, but his pose is of a large, burly dude. Can't wait to find the last 3 figs I need for Abominus.

Sorry about the sideways pix, that is how it uploaded from my phone.
When I opened him he had 2 sets of instructions.
He looks fantastic though. His head is a bit loose though and his plastic feels to be a different grade then Springers.. Maybe it is just me.

Great fig though, if you find him do not pass him up!
