    Like many people back in 2007 when the TRU reissue of G1 Soundwave came out, I only saw him once in a store, bought him on the spot, never to see another on a local TRU shelf again. Their website listing was laughable as I checked it daily and it was perpetually "Out of Stock".

    So far, G1 Perceptor has been exactly the same scenario, only this time I still haven't seen one yet.

    So my question to you all is:

    What do you guys think is the likelihood of the TRU Perceptor ever being restocked on the website?

    I've pretty much given up looking in my neck-of-the-woods.

    The restock time for online stores can be slow. Either you wait it out, or you try scoring one off eBay/another board member.

    That is very true and definitely decent options--but still very lame on TRU's part. :thumbdown

    Considering how the reissues were over-stocked before Soundwave, it is smart for TRU to limit them to more assure they will sell & they won't get stuck with tons of unsold product.

    While I don't know about TRU.com, they are just coming out to stores so they will probably coming to your store.

    Of course they have them! I've been biting nails waiting for them to reappear because my store showed no sign of having them, so I stop after work today out of sheer hope, and they had 2 Perceptors and 1 Insecticon set.... the Insecticons were in someone else's hands... He opened up the package, looked at them, and set them on the shelf. After he left, I grabbed one of each and checked out as fast as I could. I even had a $5 off coupon. :D 

    So no more stress on that end... :D

    EDIT: There's 185 Insecticons left, and 294 Perceptors online, btw

    It's so awesome that the day I get pissed enough to actually start a thread about it, they appear.

    I'll have to engage in this sort of thing more often now!

    I don't know but I just came from TRU and saw some Percetors and Insecticons. I bought one of each a couple of weeks ago.

    By the way, Voyager and Ultra figures for 50% off today and tomorrow only.
