    TRU has the Animated Arcee figure in-stock and available right now online. (No picture yet and the description looks to be for Freeway Jazz, which they have already had up for sale for a bit.)

    Couldn't locate any coupon codes at the moment, but even $5 for shipping is worth it to save you from fruitless driving trips.

    Arcee at TRU.

    Arcee at eToys. (Same stock as TRU, but may have a better promotion running if/when Arcee is re-stocked.)

    Also, didn't see Ratchet online yet when I searched.

    If the inventory system is correct, there only appears to be 60 left as of 3:10 A.M. PST.

    EDIT: Out of stock as of 5:30 A.M. PST.

    Nice. Good that you got in as it looks like they're gone already. It's difficult to believe that they would only have enough stock to list for a couple of hours online. Surely more will be available at some point as these have only had sparse sightings in stores.

    I wonder if anyone actually received their order of the Demoilshor/Twins pack?

    I just remembered to check TRU's other site, etoys.com, and of course they have a listing for Arcee as well. Strangely, it's $1 cheaper at $10.99 even though it seems that they pull their figures from the same stock.

    EDIT: Looks like they raised the price of Arcee at etoys to $11.99. Still out of stock, like TRU.

    Well, it looks like the order has updated to "items located in stock" today. That's a good sign as I expected it to be cancelled due to some error in listing too early. (Hopefully, the update doesn't means that old stock of Movie Arcee have been located, though.)

    If their inventory system updates properly, around 30 or so people were able to order. Nice work, TRU! :/

    Yeah, it is mentioned in the first post of this thread.

    Despite the Freeway Jazz description, the UPC (653569379331) matches people's reports. Because of that, TRU would have no excuse for sending the wrong thing.

    Thanks for the UPC confirmation. I searched last night, but couldn't locate it even though I knew I had seen it posted.

    I definitely entertained the idea of buying all of them last night. (Shipping was, strangely, only $25 for 60 units.) I am so unbelievably sick of scalpers, particularly by a couple of members on this board, that 4 A.M. reason dictated that I could sell Arcee here at cost and return any left over before the charge accrued interest on a credit card. I had them in my cart with information entered, but the thought of mailing all of those packages was too much to take on.

    I hate Toys r Us exclusives since the closest one is 45 minutes away. Not like I can stop by there on the way home from work every week to check for them. lol.

    Well, if it's like every single one of the other TRU exclusives, then both Arcee and Ratchet should be available online in much larger quantities. I definitely hope that's the case here.

    Animated Arcee no longer comes up when you search it (link in the OP still works). They might've took it down for now and fix their Jazz description, or it's already gone for good..............
