    + I was there at toysrus everyday when they should of get the figure and I was there the first thing in the morning but when they finally had it they only had one (meanning they put some in the back to sell to there friends or to sell on ebay) because I was goin to get 2 one to kinp in the box and one out. So I did ask and they guy there have me a mean look when I was asking so that's what I am thinking.

    Tru employees don't know anything, they cannot tell you whether or not they are getting more in, unless its on the next truck and they have the inventory list.

    So did you buy the one? Be happy you got one if you did.

    Maybe other customers got to the others before you did.

    I was told as of 10/1/12 MP Thundercraker is no longer for sale.

    Expect MP-10 Optimus any day in the spot the Thundercraker was in. And I mean ANY day... as in... today.

    For the sakes of those still hunting, I hope you were misinformed. This does nit bode well for a Hasbro MP Soundwave.

    I'm going to check on this when I get to work tonight. If he's no longer being sold, he'll be listed under "X-Status" in the TRU computer system, and the stores may no longer be eligible to carry him. I'll post my findings.

    No hunt needed, I was selling them for $65 each last week here on the forums. I ran out.

    I called the one near me and the first day the guy said they were out. The next day another guy said they werent getting any more. I happened to be out the other day and stopped in and they had one, WTF? I'm not knocking MP TC but if it's that hard to track him down I hate to think what Prime's gonna be like.

    Dear tru, thank you for getting Hasbro to distribute what the collectors want and yet still finding a way to screw the collectors over.

    Lots of useless crying here.

    Multiple members selling them at cost and shipping in junkion and there is a whole thread dedicated to others helping folks get TC.

    Some people have said in the last few days their stores have 4 to 8 shelf warming.

    Might behoove you to maybe participate in the thread or communicate with someone there

    Throw those up on ShelfLife.net or TFieds and they should go pretty quick.

    Hell, there were at least three or four on the shelf at the closest TRU to me as of last night, and there was a fresh factory sealed case of 'em on the top shelf. It seems highly dubious for them to cancel said toys while they have that many instock.

    Wasnt crying about getting one, got two of em, on here as a matter of fact. We were "crying" about clueless TRU employees, at least I was. Seems like their workers are either misinformed or making sh!t up as they go.

    So...for all you Chicken Littles out there, another thread is reporting that they went up in price on TC today...so that's probably what started all the hubub.
