    There were 4 case boxes on the risers at Saginaw Ollie's and I pulled them all down but it was just the revision case with Triggerhappy, Krok, Quake, and Twinferno....I was really hoping to score a Misfire since I never saw him anywhere.

    Welcome and thanks for the notice. I assume it was $50?

    Yes it was $50! I didn’t check any of the others but the one I bought does need the hip modification done to it so be wary when you go to put him together

    We talked about this a few weeks ago and I don't think any of us in here expected NOT to see this kind of thing happening...but this turd is the kind you really want to smack up side the head. He took two people with him when he heard there was a 3 limit on Trypticons and got the max 9, all for $50 each, trying to sell them for retail price PLUS shipping, and smugly counts his money as desperate people out there buy it...even though it's cheaper on Amazon right now if you don't have ollie's near you or they are sold out...just a world class a-hole...although I don't know who is worse, him and his cronies or the people buying from him...this is the kind of price gouging that makes me sick.

    If I had the money, I would buy what I could and sell them for what I paid plus shipping, but I'm not programmed like that guy I guess...I would want to help get it into the hands of my fellow collectors and fans, not take advantage of them :(

    Once again, if someone is out and can grab one (just 1 lol), it would be really appreciated.

    Money ready for a meet up, or to have it shipped.

    Please PM me. :)

    Thanks. I’m still on the fence on whether to get him at all. $50 is a pretty great price ($13 would be even better though). But it’s really not that important a figure to me and I really don’t have the space. My daughters would probably love a brute to fight Metroplex though.

    I think most stores got 15 trypticons in. They are probably sold out now

    Wish I would've gone on here this morning. Didn't think I would go out that way at all, then a sudden need to go to Lowe's on 15/Gratiot meant I took a trip for a few extra miles to see if I might stumble across one. Lady said they had 15 this morning, and people were lined up when the store opened and bought them all.
    Oh well.

    ATTENTION: Ollies in Lansing has 12 remaining Trypticons as of 9:30am today. They are not in the toy aisle - they are to the west of that aisle, on a center display near the front. Food luck!

    Last attempt, pleading to the group. Anyone near Lansing that could snag one, we'd be very grateful.
    Located in Roseville, and cannot make that trip.

    Thank you thank you

    Have a 15% off coupon too...you're free to have it!
