Hey I just posted half of this story in general discussion. My friend was in Leesville, La. to visit his mom in the hospital. After he visited her, he and our TFormers crew went to Wal-Mart and they found Alt. Hound! Unlike the first two Alternators that were really crappy, He and SilverStreak are 130% better than the first two. My friend ended up letting me have him, so now I got Alt. Hound and he is sweet.

Yesterday (9-28-04) I picked up Energon Downshift, Towline, Slugslinger and Sharkticon from the Clearview Super Wal Mart. They still have a few of them as of 9:15 am this morning.


Pix and brief reviews are here

The Clearview Super Wal Mart finally put out their Energon Combiners display.

I snagged a Storm Jet (I do not care much for the smaller Constructicons).

Wal-Mart in Ruston has several Swindle, Ravage, and Shockwave Alternators and at least one Alt. Windcharger.  Many of these are up on the top shelf.  The Wal-Mart in West Monroe has a few Alpha Quintesson figs and a handfull of Wing Sabers.

People have told me they've had trouble getting any of the Alts besides Sideswipe and Smokescreen around here. I Practically haunted the toys section so I got everyone but Tracks... If you're looking for Alts in North Louisiana, I suggest you head to Ruston to pick them up now before they're gone.

Okay. I checked today.


As of last week TRU had nada on the Cybertron (though they had a million of the Alternators 2 packs.)


The other day I went in and they had a few scout class figs.


Last night the Wal-Marts in North Louisiana got in a box each (I went to 3 and saw the exact same toy orders on the pallets, give or take a few boxes of games or dolls) of deluxe figs. Namely Hot Shot, Landmine, Dirt Boss, and Thundercracker. The stores I went to (Ruston, West Monroe, and Monroe) all got 2 of each figure. I bought a Thundercracker and a Hot Shot in Ruston.


Today I went to TRU in Monroe. They had /everybody/ but Ops. I assume someone beat me to the Optimus figs.


I had NO FREAKING CLUE that Starscream was going to be so massively gargantuan. Holy Wow!

I mean I? knew he was gonna be bigger but... wow. I almost didn't buy him because it freaked me so much. But I did because SS is my fav char and the only TF character that I can say I have every toy incarnation of excluding the shell for pretender SS and Action Master SS (I'm working on these.)

I also bought Vector Prime.


TRU had more of these 2 left so I didn't shaft anyone.


I really wanted Crumplezone and Jetfire and Scourge... but I'm /past/ broke as it is.


Anyway, apparently not a lot of Louisiana TFans around, but I hope this helps someone who didn't have time to check the stores on a mere hope. Cybertron is here!

I'm going to Baton Rouge for a couple of days at the end of this month. Wanted to know if there were any good vintage toy shops that sells G1s. Anybody got any suggestions? Or even just good places to get current TF that I don't have already?


Also, it doesn't have to be in Baton Rouge, I'm going to be drive around the area alot so, a 2 hour driving radius is not a problem.

  • Find Transformers on Ebay

    • Studio Series Age of Extinction Galvatron Voyager figure.  Not perfect but so much better than the old 2014 shellformer!   
    • Look, I agree with you. The problem is not that he is buying stolen material/merchandise, which it is a problem, he knowingly engages in, it is that he keeps doing it, and that people keep viewing his content, knowing full well that they are watching stolen figures being represented to them.
    • Thnaks to TFND group who have posted a look at the last Transformers Wreck’n Rule release, G2 Leadfoot and Masterdominus. This completes the special exclusive Wreckers Hammer that a part of was included in each of the 5 releases. Read on to see the completed hammer now these sets are finally shipping out.

    • He definitely has an early prototype. But he just keeps going on as if this is 100% what we're going to get. How does he know? It's a factory test shot that was smuggled out of the factory before it was finished or had all of its accessories. It wouldn't be the first time he showed off things that were wrong. Wasn't Hubcap supposed to come with the small round silver cannon piece from Brunt? I mean, that's what his had right? Several of his were also missing stuff outright. So who is he trying to fool? We all know these are "stolen" copies. Yeah he might have purchased them which to him makes them legit but they were stolen nonetheless. Therefore you do did not get it legitimately. Just ask any Pawn show owner who purchased items they didn't know were stolen. I'm not trying to argue this point though, just that nothing about his copy means that it's what we should expect at retail. I think that the colors will be more uniform at retail. Or at least, from one piece to the other as seen on the roof that he pointed out. I also think that maybe they ran or assembled pieces from both tooling for this and that's why there's the two tabs on top of the van. Those might be pieces from the Ratchet version and were never meant for Ironhide. Also there's no way they can't or won't budget in the yellow stripe. If they managed to sell Earthrise Ironhide at deluxe then they can budget in that yellow stripe for SS86 Ironhide and maybe even another gun. But really though, Earthrise Ironhide himself should be a voyager due to that added roof. Siege Ironhide was large for a deluxe even if it was stretched out like Impactor was but then they put in the roof piece which added another 7 parts at least to the total as well as the additional paint that was required. Man that pelvic flap is a let down though. I will be modding mine to be separate pieces. There's more than enough connection parts to allow for that. I cut off the hood and the bumper piece from my Earthrise Arcee so cutting that skirt plate into three won't be much trouble. Just need a fresh single edged straight razor.
