    While they didn't have any on the shelf yet, my local TRU had the shelf tag and space for MP TC. So time to start checking as they should be on shelves very soon.

    Considering MP-11 is $160 originally, this is a fucking steal.

    Wait, WHAT?!? Cool, but...I thought this was coming out in October? Then again, Optimus Prime was supposed to be out in July...but it's been delayed until September, & this has supposedly been delayed until November, yet now we're seeing shelf tags in place for it?

    ...Fuck logic.

    So does a shelf tag mean an imminent arrival of the product? Any TRU employees here that might know?

    Well from retail experience; I know that when a shelf tag is up, the product is on its way or why else waste the shelf space. My local TRU is now on my speed dial :p

    $70? Now that a UK release has been ruled out, the import cost shouldn't be unreasonable.

    Hmmm, must focus on getting MP prime first. (Though, this is a steal for TC)

    In my retail experience, a shelf tag did not always mean a product was imminent. Sometimes planograms would have a tag for something that wouldn't show for months, or even ever in a couple cases!

    A shelf tag only means one thing for certain - whoever does the in-store marketing for TRU for that aisle expected the product to be out by now at some point in time and made space for it - that doesn't mean for certain that it is coming soon, or even in a month or two.

    I think the initial leak on this was from a planogram anyway, and wasn't that months ago?
