    Got mine from Hasbro toy shop mostly because my local stores still won't stop ordering silverbolt and onslaught (non looping).

    Is it worth it? Its a Gold Red and Purple Cybertron Scourge. And possibly your only RID homage for a while besides the robot heroes for Prime and Megatron.

    Use promo code TF2009 at checkout for 10% off.
    When I make my big TF orders that 10% can cover the entire shipping amount :) 

    Edit: Hot Shot and Ratchet are In stock today. Grab those to!

    After all the answers we got recently that showed that Hasbro was totally giving Universe the axe, I'm thinking that we definitely won't get any more Universe Ultras past Bruticus, and a lot of chains are giving that price point the axe (movie line sticks to Scout, Deluxe, Voyager, and Leader) and probably aren't ordering more.

    Kmart, for example, has put their Ultras on clearance. Not that $22 is a huge clearance.

    it has nothing to do with hasbro. You guys need to go buy all the silverbolts and onslaughts clogging shelves so stores can order.

    I wasn't planning to get this toy but I have the Cybertron Scourge, and I will say I really like the mold a lot. If I didn't have Scourge I would want Bruticus. HTS sounds like the way to go.

    Yes, this has been a huge disappointment not seeing him in the stores. I really want him and Leo Prime but have yet to see either.

    Not sure when you ordered but you may want to check again. They currently are listed on HTS but not as In Stock but as a Pre-Order.

    :inquisiti  I saw Vector Prime at my local Target last month.

    I personally want this Bruticus figure just because I never got the Scourge mold.
