Finally someone from Austin! lol Thats awesome! Well believe or not! Last saturday Jan. 30 I found the last BOPPV HHH in Sunset Valley and whats funny the other two locations they don't have them in stock. Anyways I'm glad someones from Austin too. Now just waiting for the Basics RRH. Sucks we don't have Kmart

Yay I'm not alone! Glad you got the other HHH, one of the two I left behind had sticker residue that they tried to give me haha so I hope you got the other but if you collect loose then no matter.
For the record that was my first time going to that TRU and I don't think I'm going back, I missed the exit not once but twice! Just a horrible location plus it's about a 35 minute drive for me so unless they have something really cool I'll stay up north.
I've got my eyes peeled for HBK and Bret RRH as well so I'll keep this updated with what I find. There is a KMart in Killeen but I've only been twice and once was on the way back from Dallas and the other just on a whim. I did well both times most recently getting the $6 clearenced L6, all but Eddie. Takes something like that though for me to make the drive all the way up there or have a reason to go to Dallas and I can hit it on my way.

Nothing new to report really, are you looking for anything specific? Flooded with E12 at all Targets. DBry BOPPV hit TRU at 35 and Parmer but sold fast and another was ripped to shreds and left behind without the Cole piece. I posted a thread about it in the Mattel board.
I'm from Houston, primarily a Rumblers collector though I do look at the other figs when I'm in the WWE section in case I see anything that I know is hot. Nothing to report right now but if I come across anything I'll post in here now that there is finally a Texas thread.

here is my update: I checked all 3 TRU in Austin and the one on south Austin (sunset valley) it looks they put a new case of battle packs 14 but i missed cm punk/ macho man set as i only saw orton/ryan only. the other TRU nothing new as i still see the BOPPV Bryan/cole piece missing what CMPunkSavior mentioned.
Close to TRU (35 and Parmer) theres Sears Grand and saw they had the whole set of Tribute To The Troops, 2 packs 11, Basics 14 RRH but no Shawn or Bret, the 3 kmart pack of miz, cena & hhh, and the Rey with mask. and I though Sears Grand never put new figs at all but apparently did and its gonna be the closes it gets since Kmart owns Sears or vice versa.

Glad to see some more of you guys checking in. Awesome tip on Sears Grand I would have never thought to look there! Right now I'm on the hunt for E13 Edge, BOPPV Bret and the Punk/Macho battle pack with painted title.
Checked WalMart and Target in Spring (north Houston) today. Tons of old basics and heritage series as well as old Rumblers in WalMart. Don't see them getting new stuff anytime soon. Target had like 8 E12 Ortons, the old Champions 4 pack, and not much else. Was hoping to find the new Rumbler sets with Championship Belt buckles.
Found a Papa Shango at Target in The Woodlands this morning. Didn't pick it up as I only collect Rumblers. Also Kohl's in The Woodlands had a fresh box of RRH with 1 Bret, 1 HBK, 1 Goldust, and some Rey/Alberto/Morrisons. Then I saw an old Royal Rumble Beth and Jericho with beat up packaging. I know none of these are too rare but I hadn't seen them locally until now.

Nice man! Which Walmarts had them? Please don't say Louis Henna or Parmer and 35 haha Those two are for lack of a better term, ghetto and I really prefer avoiding them, just not clean stores nor a customer base of great looking people.
I heard Target is starting to get E13 in but I haven't found them or the battle packs yet.

Oh man believe it or not the first pic was actually the one on parmer and 35... yep. And second location on the pic was on 35 and 183 front of goodwill. That's the walmart I usually get lucky finding good figs. But I haven't been to the Louis Henna for awhile.
About Target I haven't heard anything on new elites or battle packs
