    Anyone here on Hawaii scored a MP Grimlock? Did they ever stock it?

    Finally stopped by Target and Walmart and saw all the AOE toys - I must say, I was pretty disappointed in them. They look cheap and flimsy. Don't think i'll buy any of them. The Whirl on the other hand, looks sweet.

    Saw the price tag for Grimlock but nothing on the shelf. YOTH Prime came out a while ago there were 2 on the shelf I got 1 and another guy picked up the other one right after me.

    Just a quick question. Did Generations Skids ever saw the light of day here in Hawaii? I never once saw him. I noticed at one point there was so much waspinators and yet the mainland people had trouble finding him. It's so hard getting Skids without selling your arm online. Walmart Canada is selling Skids fairly cheap but I don't think they ship to Hawaii. I can only pray they make another wave or produce the Japanese version of him down the line..

    I actually picked mine up from PC Walmart when the wave first hit the island (around late December/early January I think?), and also saw a handful at Kunia within the same week. He didn't stick around long though, as he did appear to be the shortpacked figure of that wave.

    So I just ordered Heavy Noisy and Sly Strike from TFSource yesterday morning and I got my shipping notice. I haven't used them in awhile but I always got free USPS Priority Mail shipping when hitting the $150 mark. This time it seems that they shipped it USPS Standard Mail and the ETA is 13 days. I think its the formally USPS Parcel Post in which case will be 30 days of transit. Anyone else shopped at TFS recently and had the free shipping, what method did you get?

    So I am finally up this year when Toys R Us adds MP Transformer Prowl to their website, unlike just missing it last year with Soundwave. But it looks like they have changed their shipping policies to the same scam as HasbroToyShop and are charing the outrageous amount of $30 just to ship to Hawaii. Stuff like this makes me so upset. The dimensions on their website means it would probably fit in a flat rate USPS box, but that isn't an option. Plus it is conveniently not eligible for the free ShopRunner 2-day UPS shipping. There is no way I am paying that insane amount. I will take my chances with finding it in the store and hope it is still visible online so that they can price match.

    That's why I stopped ordering from them. It sucks because there is a small chance of getting it from the stores. They don't get that many and there are a lot of people that want the Masterpiece figures.

    Thanks.

    Not really the Walmart here is junk and still carrying superman figures from the last movie. They have very little tf4 stuff. We are getting a Target soon that well be another option. I really wish we would get a Toysrus.

    I did grab sunstorm off toysrus.com and shoprunner was an option.

    Thanks, 8bitforlife.

    BTW, if you or anyone from Kauai is interested I can help with getting a MP Prowl for you. The local Toys R Us here has plenty of them.

    Let me know.

    Oahu TRU sucks with MP shipments. It's actually better to go on eBay. No taxes and even way cheaper. Sucks that they do not offer free shipping anymore. I won a MP Sunstorm for $78 shipped and MP Prowl for $65 shipped. Both MISB.

    Yeah, there really is no great reason to shop locally at our TRU anymore. The only time I do it is when I can price match. They are good about that.

    Late responding, but I haven't gotten stuck with standard mail from TFSource before. Toy Dojo does that and as long as I know it's coming that way that's fine. If you see "Richmond, CA" in your tracking, it is taking the slow boat here.

    I'll be shipping a big stack from TFSource soon as Talon and Air Burst show up. We'll see what happens. Last time I had a big order, they broke it up into 2 boxes via priority mail. Really the price difference between standard and priority isn't much, I hope they don't go that route.
