    Toys R Us exclusives, seriously? I could never find the first batch because they were TRU exclusives, and now the rereleases and first time releases (in the US at least) are all gonna be right back there anyways?

    So much for prices going down/them being easier to find :[

    Let's wait for these to actually hit TRU retail and see how things go before we start booing :wink:

    Please, don't complain. This is a blessing. If I can buy FE Optimus for $50-60 rather then $100. it'll be perfect.

    This is a GOOD thing. Don't prove that we are unpleasable.

    Find out when they usually get their stocking trucks and be there when they open that morning. It really is that simple.

    I'm thinking they may at least get more cases this time meaning the figures will be easier to find.

    Complain when they're out and have a 15.99 price tag or something.

    And it will make FE prices more manageable, to be honest. Instead of 44 USD shipped for a vehicon we'll start seeing 30 USD and so on.

    Well, duh. This is TRU we're talking about. I don't see why people would expect any less.

    My concern is how much room on the shelves TRU will allocate for all of these exclusives. So far we have:
    MP Thundercracker
    MP Prime
    FE Prime figures (deluxe and voyager)
    Asian exclusives (legend, scout, deluxe and voyager)

    That's a lot of new toys to put on shelves already over crowded with Prime, Movie and PCC figures that aren't moving overly fast. Granted they aren't all being released at the same time, but if say the Asian exclusives don't move quickly enough it could delay the stocking of say the FE figures.

    Chances are, the voyagers will be $39.99 and deluxes $24.99. They won't fly off the shelves that fast.

    I just hope the Asia exclusives aren't that bad in price. (it won't stop me from getting what I want, mind you...)

    Yeah, don't look at the many years that your local Toys R Us has performed poorly, just say your prayers, take your vitamins, and believe in yourself and everything will be smiles and sunshine.

    Personally, I think he's going a little too far there. I'm thinking Deluxes will be somewhere between 15-17 bucks and the Voyagers will be around 25-30.

    We should be thankful the FE figures are even coming to the States. Hasbro had no obligation to release them.

    I'm sure not going to complain about it. Only ones I am interested in are Prime and Bulk. Everyone seems to love them so much I am interested to see if they are really all that. I just hope they are around seekerblackout's guesses on price. Much more than that and they would probably be overpriced for me.

    I actually want to see these in stores first before I believe it. Shit, I want to see MP Optimus in stores first.

    And what are you exactly complaining about, $15 deluxes vs. $13 deluxes? Does $2 make that big of a difference to you?

    In Canada, those FE deluxes were 19.20 after taxes and almost $34 for voyagers. In fact, generations, DOTM, RID, everything costs that much for us at TRU, maybe a couple bucks cheaper at walmart.

    please, keep complaining about paying the same prices as the rest of the planet, it doesnt get old or anything.

    Yeah im a little nervous about all the exclusives TRU is getting. the distribution at our 2 locations here is horrible, they already overprice everything and its going to be worse since they add like an extra $5 to dlxs when its an exclusive to them

    I was guesstimating the higher end of the scale. Take into account that they're apparently more expensive to make than standard Prime line toy (which is why they haven't just rereleased them in RID packaging). Then make them an exclusive (that often jumps the price up a few bucks) and then name them a TRU exclusive... And that's where my guesstimate came from.

    I would be SHOCKED if they were the same price as the other deluxes and voyagers currently on shelves.
