    Has anyone gotten a TRU/SDCC Masterpiece Rodimus Prime? TRU's site has not changed and my local stores ain't got squat.

    If someone has access to one, I can PayPal you immediately.

    If I had the right amount of money, I'd be asking for one aswell.

    Heck, maybe even two since he makes a great display piece in box.

    Any idea if distribution of these things will be better than MP Grimlock? Previous MP figures weren't that difficult to find at WM, but Grimy was next to impossible to find at the TRUs around my area.

    I highly recommend waiting. Sdcc just ended and he wont start showing up in stores yet. All i can say is give it a month or so.

    As for distribution being better we can only hope. Grimlock was every were in my area and i am not worried about this figure either but i know i was lucky.

    They haven't even hit TRU stores yet. Isn't it a bit early for this thread?

    If the Grimlock release is any indicator, Roddy will be up on TRU.com again at some point. It's way too early in the release cycle to start freaking out imo. I think I'll be freaking out if it gets to be September and I don't have one yet.

    So can anyone confirm definitively if the QC issues with the Takara version have been fixed for the Hasbro release?

    It's never too early to start a thread about something you want. If it bothers you, there is no need for you to post here.

    The TRU/eToys pages for this item are up, so it is not too early to see if someone has one either from the con or on the way from the Web to sell.

    Well if you feel the need to pay the mark up that comes with getting it before its truly available at mass retail thats fine thats what the junkion exchange is for.

    Unless you live in the Southeast. Following Grimock's trend, then you won't see him until October. :(

    So true. Market saturation of any degree will be at least 1 month.

    For those that went to Comic Con, how hard was Rodimus to get? I waited an hour on Preview Night to get him since I couldn't get into the Hasbro booth, but I didn't stop by the Entertainment Earth booth after that since I was at panels most of the rest of the weekend. Did he sell out quickly?

    I would love to trade the amount of MP figures my area gets for a whiff of the RTS w2 or Generation 2011 figures. I had to get all of those through the kindness of others or through the internet. Still have not seen any of these figures on any of my hunts I have done in my area. Go figure.

    Meanwhile my area had Grimlocks shelf warming from November - February this year.
