Also, just to save some of you some time: I stopped by all the walmarts and targets in kenner and Metairie. Nothing new at any of them.

^Lucky!

I went to Baton Rouge TRU Tuesday and Wednesday with no luck. I gave up on Thursday then members on the TFW2005 forum spotted him. When I went there they were gone :sad:

Thanks to my calls I was able to hit east and westbank today. Nothing spectacular though.
Clearview Target: absolutely nothing
Veterans Tru: nothing
Manhattan wal mart: nothing minus nothing
Manhattan target: empty
Lapalco Tru: a couple sandstorms and new bh magnuses, they did not even have a spot for mp soundwave.
Barataria wal mart: a few springers but that is it.

Found all the FoC Wreckers at the Vets Walmart, but didn't get any of them. Also, I think I was the person who got the first Acid Storm and Soundwave from the Vets TrU today.

I just moved from an apartment in Metairie on Severn to a new house in the East, so I had been checking for him regularly. Once I moved, I decided to give the TrU a call last night. The girl who knew me called the manager and they confirmed that there was a Soundwave on their shipping truck. They found it last night and told me to be there at 10:00 am today. I had to do a final cleaning on my old apartment, so I was going to be out there anyway this morning. Got there at 9:55, strolled in, and grabbed my two new Masterpieces. The girl I know who works there saw me checking out with my Soundwave. She told me that I'm lucky to have gotten it first because there's usually a scruffy guy with long hair who buys MP figures like that. Not sure who that is, but I'm guessing it's a member of this board, and congrats to whoever you are for scoring such a great figure.

I'm loving Soundwave and, surprisingly, Acid Storm. I love the new Seeker mold and that garish green really makes it pop in my MP display.

I think I know the person you are talking about, I don't think he is a member here though.
That is familiar as to how I got my MP SW last week, they told me that they were getting them on the truck, I showed up the next morn @ 10 and BAM..

Hmm...well I wonder who the guy is. Like I said, I lived off Severn (two blocks from Lakeside) for about 5 years. I'd hit up that TrU a few times a week, sometimes just out of boredom. I've only noticed a collector there a handful of times, and it's usually Star Wars collectors (they're on the same aisle as the TF stuff). Would have been cool to bump into a fellow TF collector, but New Orleans/Metairie/Kenner doesn't really seem to have the biggest collector population out there.

I guess that's a good thing. I've never had to worry about scalpers.

I've been fortunate to get MP Acid Storm at cost + shipping from a fellow board member. Still can't find soundwave though in Baton Rouge.

Clearview target did their reset last night. This is all of the new tf toys out today.
I do not like the terrorcons due to the translucent plastic. I am waiting for trailcutter and bought none of what they had.

I met jnguyen about a year or so ago, I was in BR for work and did a trade. Nice guy. Not sure if I've accidentally run into any other board members before, but I used to do a lot of figure hunting before I resigned myself to just preordering new sets. Also...

I'm a "scruffy guy with long hair" that goes to that TRU. I usually visit that location every other week after I pick up my comics from BSI on Wednesdays. But I couldn't verify if I'm THAT guy she's talking about. I did get a tipoff and picked up MP Soundwave for a friend, but might get one for myself next time I see one (not as urgent since I have the Takara versions already). Anyways...

Was at the Manhattan Target this evening and picked up the exclusive Predacons Darksteel and Skylynx. They have a few more of each, in addition to all the other Predacons Rising exclusives. I really wanted to pick up the super huge Predaking but diverted some funds to a few other items earlier in the night. They didn't seem to have any of the newer, non-exclusive figures though.
