I was just wondering if anyone is out there? Not just New Orleans, but all of southeastern Louisiana. Even though I'm now in Phoenix, Arizona, it would be great to see how you guys are doing. Hope to hear from y'all soon.
Hey, I returned in early October. Alot of Walmarts still arent open, but the 2 Targets in the city are. They seem to get the new stuff fairly quickly. When I had to evacuate to Baton Rouge, the shocktrooper wave was hitting and I could find them alot up there, which was a nice time to hunt to get my mind off of things...
I was there in December and I also saw that alot of Wal-Marts were still closed. It's funny though, I found the Tarkin wave (ROTS) when I was there and my sister found the Shadow Trooper for me. Keep hope alive!
That's awesome, When I returned to the area the week before Xmas, I went to the Metairie Target and BAM, Shadow Trooper just sitting there on the shelf. Wal marts and TRU are horrible (Metairie TRU just now got the carkoon wave) but the Metairie Target on vets has been getting the new waves regularly, I've been impressed; still waiting to find Scorch though!!!
The super wal marts in jefferson & kenner are open, but only till 8 or 9. There is also a non-super wal mart in kenner that is open. they have been deplorable with getting any star wars figs; I don't really search there often, but I've never seen any of the 2006 saga line.
anyone collectors still in the area? It has actually been very good out there. For instance, at the veterns Toys R Us, they had two of the only figure from ROTS that I had never seen: TARKIN. Although, he came as part of their 2 pack special (forgot who the other was, it was Tarkin!!!) Also, anyone looking for SAGA wave Geonosois, the non-super Regular Wal Mart on Veterns has the entire line except for Scorch, including 2 Jango Fetts, just sitting there as of Saturday.
i'm in the northshore. due to a back injury, i've almost given up because i can't be going around checking stores when they don't have ANYTHING but the crap transformers stuff. i did luck out and find two utapau/cody grunts...
whats up to anyone on the westbank. i was wondering if anyone has seen any VTSC figures on the shelves yet? seems like every store is empty. i heard the manhattan wal-mart has opened, with limited hours, as a heads up to anyone out there.
Yeah, the guys that work at the Manhattan Target are pretty cool, they've helped me before no problems. It seems Walmart is aweful at putting figures on the shelves, but just the figures. All other SW merch. is put out, but those. Harahan W-Mart stocked a few cases Wednesday, but it was picked over by the time I got there. If any one sees VTSC let me know.
There is a meeting I've been attending for a couple of months now in Baton Rouge. I've never heard of a gathering for the New Orleans area before. For more info on the Baton Rouge affair look in the thread underneath this one.
Thanks for picking up my slack raven! I've been out of town and haven't been able to update things as much as normal. I just posted this in the BR thread but wanted to mention it here to - we have a meeting coming up this Saturday (9/2) in Baton Rouge. Check either the BR thread or here for more information. Hope to see you there!
