Was in Hammond on Wednesday - nothing to be found. Only thing worth mentioning was the Wal-Mart there had two Waspinators. I picked one up & left the other. I don't actually want mine though; I only grabbed it in case someone here wants it. If anyone does, let me know and I'll give it to you for what I paid for it.

Nice find, Cyber Bishop. I also ran across those four figures today at the Wal-Mart in Prairieville.

I found Dinobots slug and scorn, crosshairs and high octane bumblebee at the Clearview Target. Am working on uploading photos so I can post them.
And as crazy as it sounds I could not bring myself to buy any of them..

Walmart on barataria has leader class prime and grimlock (grimlock is impressive to me but not worth the 45 dollar price tag), they also have the spark racers and the deluxes.

I saw those as well. I just can't bring myself to buy them either. I might pick up the triceratops guy; he's the only one that looks solid.

TRU on vets has everything of the new AOE toys except Voyager OP.

Target on vets had nothing out. But I was able to get an employee to grab voyager evasion mode OP from the back.

*didn't realize there were new updates here*

So, I picked up all 4 deluxe AoE figures on Saturday night from Walmart in Algiers. I still haven't opened BB or CH, but my favorite out of the dinos is Scorn. I think Slug's downfall is his robot mode.

There were also the quick change guys, but no Leader or Voyager figures in sight.

I grabbed a MP Grimlock from vets TRU this morning. Had a guy trying to reserve 4 of them for himself. I took care of that little problem. He left with 1 and I left with 1. No more left btw. Hopefully they'll have more next week.

Passed by TRU in Marrero around noon (after seeing SithLord's post), MP Grimlock wasn't on the shelves (but there was a price tag where he should be) and he wasn't showing on their system as in stock. So, don't bother going there today but try next week.

It was nice to see the TRU on Siegen (BR) still had 2 YOTH Optimus Prime on the shelf yesterday. Too bad that couldn't just be MP-10. Or a bunch of Grimmy's.

I talked to a TRU employee that I'm friends with and it turns out the same guy that was trying to grab 4 grimlocks from the Veterans TRU has been calling every store in the area on their shipment days to reserve every MP Grimlock in stock. Some of the stores have been letting him do it too. So if you go to a store and they tell you that they are all reserved; ask them if its by the same person. If so, ask for the manager. I'm sure he/she will let you take one of the reserved ones.

Also, in case you want to know who this scalper is, he's an Asian "little person".

That's a damn shame. I hope stores aren't letting him "reserve" all the shipment. I was lucky enough to pull one from online last week, but I've still got a friend who wants one. This guy, however... just makes me sick.

Anyways, is anyone interested in going to see Age of Extinction as a group? I'm seeing a 9pm showing on Thursday 6/26 at the Westbank Palace - IMAX 3D, not sure when the other theaters will start selling tickets. And in general, anyone interested in a local (NOLA-esque) meet-up? I know a few people personally but rarely get to see them.

Does he have a cane or is handicapped?
There is this guy that walks with a cane that hits the TRU's every time they get a truck, he nabs things and if he cannot sell them he brings them back.

I don't think he was handicapped; he didn't use a cane when I was there. That's smart, but messed up, to return the stuff he can't sell. If you're going to scalp you should accept your losses when they happen.

I'm glad I got Boba Fett when he first came out. Come to think of it, I haven't seen him in any store in Metairie since.

Guess not, I've been hunting them for weeks. I was shocked to see so many just hanging on the shelves. With all the TF4 stuff clogging up the shelves, I was starting to give up.

I had to setup Swerve next to Skids, but now I have an overwhelming urge to complete the Lost Light :(

Tailgate is great for display but as far as playability and decent posability he is not so good.
Keep your eye our for Skrapnel as he is one of the best figs in this line.
