    Yes the scalpers probably worked their magic and now it's gone. I'm only a little bit upset...

    Wow, thanks for updating your SDCC banner and page TRU.

    Can't believe its already gone, too.

    At least this figure, unlike the other exclusives, is hitting retail.

    At least we can all take solace in the fact that this will be like Grimlock of last year, and will be put up for sale on TRU's website again and available in stores.

    Its TRU exclusive, but not SDCC exclusive, so we don't need to start paying crazy eBay prices or anything.

    At least all of the true SDCC exclusives were still available to buy, the only thing that sold out was Rodimus.

    The TRU's near me get tons of MP figures that NEVER sell out. I can help out board members if that is the case.

    Last year at Thanksgiving, there were 6 on the shelf and 4 unpacked boxes on top. Went to another TRU near me, same thing.

    As for this guy, I was lucky enough to pick him up at 6A today. Hopefully he has no QA issues. Only problem I have is now I stepped into the Past Season 1 MP stuff. Goodbye more money.

    If he is like Grimlock, expect TRU to keep raising the price.

    I think Grimlock started at $60, and eventually hit $75 or so.

    I know, man. Who would've thought that the highly anticipated American release of a Masterpiece figure would sell out so quick online. I certainly didn't. BALLS, I tells ya. BALLS.

    A friend of mine who does orders/pricing at the store level has hinted that this figure may not actually be available at retail, so stay tuned to that website if you really have to have it.
