    I was at toysrus.com and notice on the main page one of the scrolling news feed talks about reserving the hottest toys coming soon. I tried clicking on it (using my phone) but it seems unclickable. Does anyone know any more info on this new service? Could they possibly take reservations for Masterpiece Optimus Prime? Thoughts?

    I could see MP Optimus as an option. However, I doubt it would be availible for individual items in a case assortment. So no Vehicon reservations. Probably meant for items that are solid cases of an item. So MP Thundercracker maybe.

    Considering Ultimate Optimus Prime was the hottest toy on shelves last X-Mas they could see this as a follow up as a HOT TOY seller during the holidays.

    They could make a million of them and they would not sit on the shelves long at a $99 price point. Throw in the annual TRU 20% sale and this is looking like the deal of the century.

    I'm not very optimistic with this new option. The TRU Web site's option to e-mail you when "out of stock products come back into stock" doesn't even work, so I have low expectations for this supposedly new service. Besides, even assuming if it did work, I'm sure scalpers will find some way to exploit this for sure.

    Also posted this in the News thread:

    The TRU Hot Toys 2012 list came out today, and MP-10 isn't on there. In fact, not a Transformer to be found. Dang, I was really hoping we'd be able to reserve him but its going to be MP TC all over again. :(

    Just so everyone is clear: This is IN STORE ONLY.

    Guys, even if Optimus is included in this toy reservation service, the website will be useless for it. You need to go into the store and go to customer service to secure your item.

    Edit: Never mind, he's not on the list anyway.

    just saw the list, no Transformers, or anything worth crap on there. Except the WiiU of course, which is useless since most stores are already sold out of the deluxe version.
