    TRU in Saginaw had the MP-10, the Masterpiece movie Bumblebee, and both Cosmos and Sea Spray. There was a Trypticon the other day but he's gone now.

    That MP movie Bee...the box is sooooooo tiny....no way I'm paying $80 for something that small. Can't come out much bigger than a Voyager, maybe more of a deluxe...smh..what are they thinking?

    Also saw at TRU they had new Star Wars female dolls, seemed bigger than Barbie sized, of a couple different Leia and Rey...I guess there's also Sabine and Erso...but they weren't with the girls dolls, they were with the regular SW stuff...weird. Also lots of new LEGO sets, new Marvel Legends, new DC JL figures with the build-a-figure for the movie's baddie...toys for the new MLP movie (for any bronies out there)...lots of new stuff after what seemed like a long drought of boring same-old, same-old...

    Ann Arbor TRU has 3 MPM 3 Bumblebees and at least 3 MP10 Primes. The Primes boxes look pretty rough though. I'm glad i got him when he first came out in the nice clear display boxes.

    Where were they? I hit that TRU at about 12:40 today and didn't see any of those. Did they have any new Titans Return stuff?

    They were behind the counter in electronics. They hadn't set them out yet. Seems several have already had called about them so they were keeping them there. Nothing else new that i could see. No new TR or movie things.

    Hasbrotoyshop.com updated it's TF stock. Just ordered a Trypticon and voyager movie Megatron using the 20% off code you get when you sign up for emails. Free shipping too. Still have to pay sales tax. If I compare it to TRU retail prices, I got Megatron for free!

    Woodhaven Walmart has one each of TLK Leader Prime and Megatron, but they are at the opposite end of the aisle they should be.
    Southgate TRU has two Movie Masterpiece Bumblebees.

    MP Optimus Prime @ TRU in Livonia. It's got box damage thanks to anti theft and anti purchase device on it. Why do they put this dang thing on it?!

    The TRU sales lady I spoke with told me all the MP Primes boxes they got were damaged out of the carton. Most of the MPM Bees boxes were too. Looks like they're using a much thinner cardboard and I suspect the inner plastic tray is thinner too leading to easy crushing. The MPM 4 Prime box I got was pretty crummy too. Dissapointing.
