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 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.
