    What state are you in?
    California is already selling them and the northeast doesn't even have them in the warehouses yet. I'm trying to figure out the trickle through the country to make sure we Hasbronians actually see the damn thing on shelves. RI is like the last to get everything. We haven't even seen potp wave 2 anything yet save for 1 elita, 1 hungrr, and 1 evil rodimus all at 1 Walmart. Meanwhile my buds in MA and NH are seeing wave two everything all over their areas.

    I had customer service check the system in Idaho today and they didn’t show any on hand or any incoming for either store in the state. So nothing here yet.

    The Thundercracker on ebay right now is now $86. If it were available for Canadians it would be $110.

    I'm pretty sure they show the price strike-thru if a Best Offer is made/accepted, I'm thinking this one went for $160. SMDH

    They used to but that is no longer the case. There are apps and other third party software made specifically for seeing the offer price that items were sold at. Trust me, I deal in sports cards on ebay and prices fluxuate from week to week, knowing what a card sells for is a big factor in determining its worth at the moment.

    It feels like we see this every few months. Just recently with arcee and grotesque. Everyone goes nuts for a few weeks and then they are widely available at cost a month later. I can definitely afford to wait this one out for a couple of weeks.

    Caved and bought it as soon as a $75 one popped up on ebay, especially with the imminent liquidation of TRU

    Can we though? What's going on with TRU right now, will they even be open by this figure's street date?

    How can TRU land these exclusives when they can’t even pay their debtors? They aren’t gonna pay hasbro for the exclusives they plan to sell... they are going to pay there C level execs and provide golden chutes of glory.

    With the liquidation nigh I’m not even going to bother hunting for this. It’s not worth my time and it certainly isn’t worth rewarding the scalpers in the few areas that got supplies before the crunch.

    The correct price should be $24.99. Not $90.

    You're all concerned over Thundercracker dying from TRU closing, but I still need Infernocus.

    That's Infernocus, not Thundercracker.
