    Now you need the SDCC one, or the Asia Exclusive one, or both!

    I just want to know how they were able to pull of $79.99? Seriously! Does Costco clear more stock then Amazon? And I am willing to bet TRU is pissed. I mean their shelves will have him for $45 more then Costco!

    No thanks LOL....too much is too much. But for $80....that is kind of a dumb one to pass IF...it really is different from the regular Hasbro release. If it's the same then I might as well not bother.

    Is there a date/timeframe? I'm guessing not at the moment?

    Wondering how much he will cost here. TRU has their Metroplexes at $150 (and I have one on layaway). If its around $100 I'd get a second one.

    Now I needto find out if my brother still has his Costco membership...

    How do people not have Costco memberships. That place is awesome. If you get membership, get their:
    Burritos
    Pizza
    Spinach Ravolli

    I have lived off that stuff before.

    I never renewed my membership. LOVED the place, just felt like I was always going in there buying a bunch of shit I didn't think I needed before I walked in lol. It's unavoidable. And the amount of food samples is silly awesome.

    As for Metro, finally pulled the trigger at Amazon yesterday since it dropped to $115, so this is a kick in the nuts.

    Simple. The closest Costco is 79.34 miles away according to their website and I rarely drive outside of a 60 mile radius form where I'm located.

    Good deal for those who live near one though

    Wow! Yeah, that sucks.

    I have a Costco that is that distance, that I never go to unless I have a party. That Costco has alcohol. The one near me doesn't. Costco's with alcohol are twice as awesome.

    It's funny, I was on my way to Costco this afternoon to double check on this as it had been posted in the Sales and Deals thread earlier in the week. As I was walking in board member ServO texted me to see if I could pick one up for him, at which point I knew someone else had scooped me. Curse you jimmynguyen41! :) 

    So yeah, as I posted earlier I also spoke with a rep there and got the number. It was listed as "toys / seas", which means that as expected it's going to be a seasonal (Christmas) item. The rep at my store was just guessing, but he thought it could be in soon as they already have some of their seasonal toys out.

    In terms of which Metroplex it is, it would be an absolute coup if it's chromed for $80. My suspicion is that it will be the normal retail version with some pack-ins, because that's what Costco likes to do.

    Also, it's been said a few times, but it is true that if you don't have a membership you should be able to get in the door someone you know gives you gift card. You're able to pay for the balance of whatever you buy with a cash or an Amex card. Also, expect a full court press about getting a membership. I find it totally worth it (make up the annual cost in savings on milk alone, even before getting married and having a family), but YMMV.

    This is a great buy if you already have a Costco membership and actually use it. If you're going to drive all over town and pay $55+ bucks for a membership just to get one of these you're not thinking clearly.
