    Just wanted to know if there's any new alts at TRU around the US.
    I haven't seen one new alt since Alt skids at TRU. tons of skids, tracks, sunstreaker, ricochet and rollbar. Why are TRUs hiding Prime, Mirage and camsht from us?

    My Toys R Us still has Prowl, Skids, and Tracks. I too wish theyd get Prime out there..I already got Mirage and Camshaft from Target. I don't want to have to pay ebay prices for my Alt Prime.

    I haven't seen any Alts at the local TRU since May. I'm not really expecting them to carry the line anymore.

    Wow, that's lucky.

    I'm hoping that TRU will start carrying Alts again during the holiday season though I shouldn't hold my breath.

    Where I am, Target has been more reliable for new stuff than the TRUs.

    wtf do you need that many for? And where are you located? I don't know of anyone finding Prime or Mirage at TRU, at least in the US.

    My little bro works at TRUl, and they've been sold out of Alt's for about 2 months. They haven't gotten any at all in since Riccocet first started hitting.

    Ditto. I haven't seen any new alts anywhere since the first Riccochet wave. Most everywhere is down to just Skids.

    Just to hijack the thread, strictly speaking... I picked up Mirage #1 and Op #3 at a Super Wally here yesterday. Still no sighting of Camshaft - either the employees love him, or somebody already got their fill of Mirage and Op.

    Returning to the thread.... I haven't checked my TRUs in 2 weeks. Sorry.
