    Supposedly some factory worker broke The mold. The stupid thing is, he's not even supposed to be street dated.

    If Hasbro does a second run or running change and doesn't offer something for The people who already bought it I will be so mad.

    Hmmm....How about this: Try to find the DCPI number and call around to various TRU stores and see if they have it ?

    Either that or Amazon. If you try a comic and/or collectible store shop you'll be paying their markup. Only other thing I can think of is to see if someone here has an extra they want to part with. I know that a few are willing to part with certain figures from the set since some just want the set only for Nautica and/or Fastlane.

    Voyager Grimlock as far as the eye can see at Colonial/Alafaya Wal-Mart, Goldenrod/Hoffner Wal-Mart, and Narcoosee Wal-Mart. Really ready for wave 2 deluxes to show up. I have an extra Voyager Megatron if anybody in the East Orlando area wants one. Looking for Nitro.

    Grabbed the only (or maybe last) MPM Bumblebee from Altamonte TRU Saturday - WHAT AN AWESOME FIGURE. Very surprised honestly. If only the movies were as good as the figures.

    They had 2 MP-10 Optimus Primes left...

    Waiting for the MPM Optimus to appear in stores... why wait until Nov 1... so dumb.

    Maybe we should start a pool on how much it will be discounted, lol ? (FWIW, my bet: 5 dollars at some point)

    As for Nitro, good figure; beware though, it is an aggravating figure to first transform. After you figure it out it isn't so bad but dammit to hell, I almost threw the damn thing up against the wall the other night , lol...

    That said, the TR Easter egg thing with the removable head as well as the opening cockpit to house a Titan Master was a nice touch. I would like to know the background on that decision though. (How much you wanna bet a special edition of this figure will be released by Takara/Tomy with the head transforming, etc.. ?)

    Looks like someone yanked out some parts, right ? Honestly, that is all I see. All I collect is TF's so I am pretty ignorant of other action figure lines...

    (Actually, I collect cats too it seems and they are the ultimate action figures, lol...)

    My TRU actually put MPM-4 on hold for me while they determined if they could sell it to me. Picked him up today, pretty stoked!

    They should have used that toilet paper to wipe instead, maybe then they'd be less shitty.

    These are unique to Target. Your best bet for anything TRU is the "RWeb" number, if you can find it...

    Perhaps, but seeing as I scored Fort Max for $50 at Ross, I'd call him a pretty stellar value comparatively. Tryps will surely be there eventually, as well.

    Perhaps it's time to introduce myself and stop creeping.
    I live in the DFW area of Texas, but I grew up in Tallahassee, and still have family in the area, as well as some in Apilachicola, and a grandmother on St. George Island. Figured keeping a weather eye on ya'll's sightings might be beneficial, since I could presumably have a family member pick up and ship for me, if necessary.
