    It was a rumor that was unconfirmed.
    Course it could start trickling over the next few days like the WFC toys did.

    It wasn't a rumor; it was posted on Hasbro's site. The 7/1 date is actually still on their site. I think next week is when we'll start seeing sightings.

    Don't believe everything you read on the internet.

    Toys don't have release date like movies and video games a lot of different factors come into play.

    Not exactly true. Toys sometimes do have specific street dates, such as the toys from the first Transformers movie and Star Wars figures.

    Because their site is usually kinda crap for listing a lot of things.

    Welcome to the boards, and yes in some rare cases there is a street date.

    I believe it will be what we heard before. Will be available first at SDCC, then afterwards at TRU.

    I tried messaging TRU several days ago with no response whatsoever about this ! It's odd, because they're usually good at getting back to me regarding my inquiries, although, not fully answered or satisfactory.

    The only time toys have a definite street date is when they are tied to a theatrical movie being released. Other than that, they show up when they show up.

    I just chatted with a hasbro rep online who said they had nothing in their computers about grimmy..she said the only ones in her system were starscream and skywarp, so i pointed her to the link on her company's site. she gave me the generic "it may be postponed" response with no information on her end. it seems i was educating her more about it than she was me... go team hasbro! grr...i so do not want to end up like when starscream came out and i was hunting everywhere in my area daily and turning up empty-handed thanks to scalpers and everyone else beating me to it every single time. i want my grimlock damnit! lol

    TRU had released a statement saying it would be available after SDCC which is at the end of July. I would suspect that by mid August they should be hitting most TRUs. TRU seemed really excited to have it debut at SDCC before hitting store shelves.

    Just on the odd chance he was, I took the long drive out to my nearest TRU, and sure enough, no Grimlock. They did get most of the new stuff too, except Thrust and Drift.

    Where was the statement from TRU? Unless I missed an official TRU or Hasbro update; I think it was just a TFW member's statement.

    I'm glad it's not out yet. I need more time to add cash to my wallet.

    I say delay it another month. We're already swamped with new stuff.

    I was under this assumption the whole time. I think it was announced sometime with or shortly after it was announced that this would be a TRU exclusive. I'm pretty sure the whole release time frame was over looked by the fanboy groaning over "Ohh No! Not another immposible to find TRU toy like Arcee! I hate Hasbro." :lol

    I went out on my lunch to try and pick him from TRU as well. Best I can figure is Grimlock will not be released in the middle of the TRU BOGO 50% All Things Transformers sale. I figured I would pick up two with that going on. But hey I was able to find Drift and Thrust.
