    Is it still posibble to find the reissues, masterpieces, or large titanium figues at TRU stores? Or is all pretty much online shopping now? I don't want to do an hour drive to TRU if I can spend the gas money on shipping.

    You -might- be able to find MP Grimlock, but even the odds of that are slim. For everything else, you're a couple years too late.

    Yea I figured the others were quite older but sometimes they pull out old stock. I saw one titanium item at a TRU a few months ago.

    Depending on where you are, a TRU MIGHT have last year's Insecticon and Perceptor reissues as well as the Grimlock Masterpiece figure.

    But the 2007 movie rush basically did a LOT to clear out prior inventory on those lines.

    As is, given you are an hour's drive, I'd say just order the damn things since shipping will cost the same or less and be less of an overall hassle.

    Grimlock will be an easy find i think both of my TRUs have had him in within the last month. One had him in within the last 2 weeks when i picked up Skullgrin.

    I'd suggest giving them a call to see if they have anything. If you have to drive that far to get a TRU, you'll more than likely end wasting gas.

    It's a crap-shoot. Might as well make the voyage to check it out yourself. If you call, you're probably just going to get someone who won't know what you're looking for specifically.

    Oh I love Indy! He *was* a cutie... 'til IJ4 came out. I think I'll pass on the action figures though. lol Thanks a lot.

    That is it? Ebay is ridiculous with prices at double. That figures.


    Yeah, I went up there anyway to that TRU just to see how much TF items they can carry. They're a pretty good size store. There's another TRU about 45 mins away but less stuff. I did pick up a $6 Animated Snarl plus another Animated figure. I had to make it worth it.

    But no luck on any MP items - at least I checked now. lol
