    Wow,lots of La Transformer fans,cool! Don't want to hijack this thread but do you guys sell/trade to each other locally? I'm just starting to collect and It'd be cool to be able to buy them around here (BR) without having to pay for shipping and whatnot.

    I had some things to do out in Metairie during lunch so I stopped at Target on Vets. I walked down the ailse and something hit me like a truck ... a red and blue semi truck to be exact. One leader Prime and one leader Megs were on the shelf.:drool:  I grabbed the last Prime and headed for the register. Absolutely no problems at checkout. He rang up and I paid and then I surpressed the urge to dance around. OK so enough of my rant. Bottom line there was one ROTF leader Megatron on the shelf at Target on Vets as of around 1:15pm.

    Well, I just "happened" to be at the Walmart on West Espanade around closeing time tonight. I spoke with the person that was putting up the toy stock and he said that all of the ROTF toys would be out on the shelves by open time this morning. The store opens at 6am FYI.

    Stopped by the Beherman Walmart on the Westbank on my way to work today, they had multiples of everything that is out right now. I grabbed about $160 worth and had no problems checking out.

    Stopped by Walmart in Pineville and they had all of their ROTF toys set up. Picked up Leader OP, Sideswipe, and Sideways. I plan on stopping by Target in Alexandria on my way to work this afternoon to see what else is available.

    Is there anyplace in the BR area that sells older TFs? I'm not talking G1 old (is there a G1 place?) but old like older wave Universe stuff (Galvatron and Acid Storm I need). Every single retail store I go to has the same animated stuff and only Toys R Us has Universe stuff.

    In the NO area you could still find Galvatron and Ironhide as recent as last week in a few places. Like K-mart

    I just got back from TRU on the Westbank. Their front display is full. It looked like I had first crack at it. I picked up Sideswipe, Sideways (which appears to be the darker variation), Ransack, Starscream and voyager Megatron. There was also many others ...Mixmaster, Fallen, Bumblebee, Breakaway,etc (I didn't check all of the deluxes). Tons of leader primes and megs. Also had the exclusive Whirl and Bludgeon 2 Pack if anyone is interested. KahN, there is one voyager megs left if you haven't found one yet. Happy hunting!:thumbs2:
