    I was strolling through my local TRU looking for the Insecticons re-release, when i spotted an unusual box in the TF section, when i grabbed it... it was Vector Prime!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:p :jawdropper: , i've never even seen one of these before, when i went to the cashier it rang up at $10.49 :drool:  :bowdown: , jajajajajajajaaja, yes!!!!!!1, score one for the little guy!!!, i was so happy, this is a great figure, i really like it a lot.
    But i have one question, what's his key for?, when i put it in nothing happens, anyone knows from the original mold what his is supposed to do?.
    Thanks guys for the reply.

    Nice. Good deal.

    As for the Key, the old one had electronics when you put the key in and moved the arm. However the removed it for subsequent releases (botcon, universe). Its pretty much there for the sake of having a key

    ya, he just showed up at mine as well, they had a bunch but it all disappeared within a few days. Seems that now that the movie stuff isn't so big, stores are putting other stuff out. Almost every store around me fully restocked their animated and it actually seems to be selling better than rotf, though that could just be a local phenomenon

    I think he meant the red and blue Leo Prime and not the upcoming white and gold homage Leo Prime.

    Finally found Vector Prime too. There was only one left and it was in a cart about to be stocked. Almost walked by it. He's really cool. Got it for $10.49 too!

    The word on the streets is that the fine print on the labor day sale said until the 12th. Haven't check so I don't know but TRU is trying to clear out it's Universe and animated Leaders. No idea why they got another shipment of Infernos and Vectors unless they've been sitting in the warehouse.

    You'll have to check ebay now and pay $40 or higher for one of those $10 Voyager Infernos the scalpers hungrily pounced upon the minute they started popping up at TRU.

    Trust me on this, the three stores in my area had only the remnants of that case Inferno came in. By now it's just Heavy Load and Treadshot, like it was months ago.

    Not that I'm bitter (I ordered Inferno a few days ago for $30) just annoyed that others can't get that toy for an insane discount.
