    Picked up a Premium Blackout at walmart in Metairie; though I havent seen any premiums since. Stopped by every Kmart/Walmart/ToysRus/Target in metairie and only found old stuff.

    The "Steve and Barry's" store at Cortana Mall has some cool, G1 Transformers shirts for 9 bucks, or 2 for $15.

    Still been looking all over metairie and parts of the westbank as well; nothing new still. I talked to a stock manager at Walmart on vets the other day and she said they wouldnt be getting anything new until all of the old junk sells; which will probably not be anytime soon. I want my premiums damnit! lol.

    Seems I'm the only one from Louisiana... ah well. Hopefully someone else will post one day! BTW, Picked up Premium Megatron and Premium Optimus Prime from the ToysRUs in Metairie on VETs. I got the last Prime but they still had 4-5 Megatrons left. I also picked up a Premium Ironhide from the Walmart on West Esplanade. Every other Walmart/K-mart/Target in Metairie/Kenner/Westbank all had the same ol stuff.

    I was just at the Wal-Mart on Jefferson Highway next to the Huey P. Long Bridge and they had a whole bunch of Animated figures. The 2-pack, Lugnut, Grimlock, Megatron (Cybertron mode), Bulkhead, Blackarachnia, Lockdown, Optimus Prime (Cybertron mode), Ratchet, and Prowl. I noticed there were no Bumblebees.

    Alexandria and Pineville Release Animated

    Picked up all of the released figures today in Alexandria's Wal-Mart. Checked Pineville's store on my way to work and they were stocked as well. Both stores had a good supply of all figures except for Grimlock and Lugnut.

    That's probably the only animated toy I'll get when I find him. Anyway, the College Drive Wal Mart had a few Bulkheads and Starscreams. That place tends to be a "hoarders" heaven, so I was surprised to see them. . .but then I noticed that the boxes were all dinged up, which probably explains why they were there at all.

    BTW, if anyone reading this is a College Drive hoarder, shame on you! :)

    o.0!

    Ah! There's actually other fans in Louisiana! Nice lol. I did my rounds today; Target and Toys R Us in Metairie have nothing new. Wal-mart near David Dr was completly stocked with Animated figures; to find the voyager ones you gotta go like 2 isles over and their sitting on top of one of the shelves. The walmart near Esplanade had just a few Deluxes and a Grimlock. Kmart didnt have jack.

    Voyager Optimus Prime in Alexandria

    I found Voyager Prime at the Alexandria Target hiding behind Lugnut and Grimlock. He was the only one there, but hopefully they will restock soon so my fellow collectors can get him also.

    The KB Toys in the outlet mall near Baton Rouge had the first-wave Animated Voyagers (I counted 1 Starscream, 1 Cybertron Megatron and 3 Bulkheads). Still had some movie line figures (Real Gears, lots of Deluxe shelf-warmers (plus a concept Bumblebee and a Stealth Bumblebee), a few Legends 2-packs, some of those movie scene things (3 Capture of Bumblebee and 2 of the one with Barricade), and the Movie Voyagers were on sale, I saw lots of Off-Road Ironhides and a couple of Incinerators and Evacs) and most of the Cybertron-in-Universe-packaging figures.

    Gonzales?

    I have seen Transformers just about everywhere now. I got one of two Grimlocks at the Siegen Target last week (I doubt it's still there, but you never know).

    There were only 2 Grimlocks at Target when I went to get Prime. If you get a chance, check Alexandria Wal-Mart. I havent't been to the new store on 28 West, but the store near the mall has a pretty good selection.
