    Is the Cliffjumper mold featured in this series going to see a regular release or will it be stuck as an exclusive to Toys R Us/Hasbrotoyshop/BBTS/TFsource?

    I really want normal CJ with this mold more than the RID one that comes out later.

    That's what I'm wondering, I'm assuming we'll get subtle repaints or maybe just repacks of some of them, but the future is still uncertain.

    The Transformers Collectors Club magazine has stated that the Prime First Edition toys will be available to TRU and select online stores. I can't say if they do plan to expand that to other retail stores.

    I'm contemplating of ordering from BBTS to get CJ easily if the only retail store that will carry this figure is toys r us.

    I am not sure if it would be worth the money but its up to you. It seems that Prime First edition will have great availability. I base this on my experience but we went from nothing on the shelves to a fair levle of market saturation over night. Factor in that Christmas shopping will be ending soon. This is just my opinion but i can understand where you are coming from. With Warpath i had him preordered but considering that i had no POL built at that time it would have been $30 after shipping i could not justfiy it. It took some time but i had no trouble finding warpath.

    I'm currently having trouble finding them on shelves where I live and it's frequented by people who buy and re-sell at frank and sons and online making it more difficult for me to get if it's a toys r us exclusive. I never saw MP Rodimus in store...

    If we get a 1st Ed. Cliffjumper repackage/repaint in the main line, I do hope it's Tailgate.

    Seeing how Toys R Us is selling Prime toys at premium, bbts is about the same... So is TFsource, who's faster?

    Being a Canadian, what's 'premium' for Americans?

    Here they retail for $16.99 (deluxe) and $29.99 (voyager) but we've had an almost month long 30-40% off sale for all transformers that I've gotten all the Prime toys for $10 and $20, respectively.

    I hadn't heard anything about them being TRU exclusive before...

    Well this sucks. I don't have a single one remotely close to me.

    Pretty stupid decision, all things considered.
