    A friend of mine also got in 2 orders when it went live and he said his still is at the 59.99 so that looks good IMHO.

    There was a sighting up here in Canada of them at a TRU store. Just the one sighting so far so not sure if one store just happened to put out a box early but it may be a good sign.

    I've not received a cancellation nor has anyone else in the currently running thread about the TRU Grimlock.

    Now the MP Grimlock order site on TRU has disappeared.

    Na, they probably got sick of people calling customer service wondering when it was coming into stock again.

    I'm hoping they get this shit fixed soon, don't plan to pay jacked up prices for this figure over at BBTS or TF Source. Someone at TRU better get their shit together.

    Piss poor logistics,they better get their shit together?are you guys serious? Do you know how many toys are delayed in TRU a Month?you only care about this because its a Transformer. I honestly hope they cancel all these orders because there's no reason to order 3. The people saying they "will Not!" Pay BBTSs prices,are the same ones ordering 3 just to screw people on the board.

    I ordered 3 Blasters off of HTS. One for me and two each for friends so we could save on shipping. Didn't have to go through etailers that have him for $80+ . If I knew of people that needed Grimlock in my hometown area that needed him I would have done the same. And would've ended up being flamed for it.

    I'm trying to get the guy to post up a pic but it appears to be legit. He says he found 3 in a local TRU, him and his friend that was with him bought all 3. When he talked to an employee, she thought they had received 6 in total.

    So you're saying we should care about everything TRU does and not just what we ordered? I won't pay BBTS's prices, but I only ordered one. I'm not too sure what your point is, but I'm pretty sure you don't either.

    My point is that delays happen. I would think something as small as a toy delay would not be taken so serious by adults.

    Fair enough. Not on this site though.

    I think people are just frustrated because there's been little consistency in what TRU is telling it's customers.
