    so both voyager GRIMLOCK and Masterpiece PRIME are both on open order so all we are waiting is shelf space to make orders and bring in the new items.

    also from what i've heard from the guy who is makes our merch orders is that the price shown the order sheet is 149.99 and not the pre-order price of 99.99, which i think is total bull but i wouldn't be surprised because thundercracker's price was showing as 114.99 but was being sold for 69.99 so that means they are allowed to up the price for the holiday rush.

    also just a FYI TRU:TS has raised the price on the MP THUNDERCRACKER to $86.99 and i wouldn't be shocked if they were to raise it again in the coming month or two.

    Huh that's weird. I wonder if you could make the store price-match the website's $74.99 price for MP Thundercracker. They're in stock for shipping right now.

    Grimlock is in wave 2 of the FoC voyagers, which aren't scheduled till March. How can they be on order already? Unless its like WfC prime & BB where TRU got preview cases...

    well this is another insider news we are goin to start rolling out price matching on competitive pricing

    as far as website price matching we do that as well so now that the price is up on MP THUNDERCRACKER i would jump and get that price match or maybe hold out for the holiday sales but then you run the rick of having no inventory at all by that time

    the GRIMLOCK like i said is all floating words right now from what ive heard from the HASBRO rep and also our merch ordering guy so thats hats been floating around and its already in open order so it could be ordered if we wanted to as well as the MP:OP

    Unless they're changing the waves, and giving us Grimlock in wave 1 so it's not completely the same mold hitting shelves.

    They are on the streets picking up people in NYC.

    I would love if Grimlock was coming out earlier then expected. That's the next major FoC figure I want.

    I thought they often priced things higher in the Times Square branch than other branches.

    You know, tourist trap and all that.


    Edit: Even that Optimus Maximus in the background is 6.00 more than from TRUs website.

    Not so much tourist trap as just everything in NYC is more expensive.
