Toys 'R Us Exclusive Animated Arcee and Ratchet Cybertron Mode Out at United States Retail

A member of 4Chan reports that he has sighted the exclusive Transformers Animated Arcee figure at a Toys 'R Us store in Houston, TX. The item was not in the Toys 'R Us computers yet, so the cashier mistakenly rang up the item at Legends-class price. There is no confirmation if the Toys 'R Us exclusive Autobot Ratchet Cybertron Mode figure was also sighted. Check out the picture proof by clicking on the thumbnail to the left.

Update:
panzerjedi of our 2005 Boards has sighted both at a Toys 'R Us in California. See the updated thumbnail picture to the left for proof.

Wow, the dude got Animated Arcee for the price of ROTF Legends Arcee?

Sweet, can't wait 'till the new Animated wave starts to hit the US for real.

Another first sighting in Texas. Seems like the distribution cycle in Texas is a little quicker than other areas right now.
Foster
Great news.
Robogeek28
Holy crap, I need to start hunting for Arcee for my daughter then.
doomtron

NothingHead
Ahhh! Awesome! This is great news!
Keller500
I object, it says ROTF And not TF ANIMATED
Keller500
I could be VERY wrong though
Optimus Prime
Wouldn't put it past 4chan to make a hoax, but if it's true, it's a good...
WHERE THE HECK ARE BLACKOUT AND RODIMUS!!!!?!?!?!!
Pravus Prime
I'm holding out on calling Shenanigans, but I want to. Prove me wrong guys.
BHiga6181
Damn...without a SKU I cant call around for it.

But until another sighting is reported with a proper receipt, Im holding off on fulling believing this. I could have had Arcee MOSC about a month ago from China so anyone could have done this.

Hopefully this is a legit sighting though.
NothingHead
If it was a hoax, they wouldn't have used that receipt. They'd have doctored a proper one for Animated Arcee at the appropriate price point, yeah?
Optimus Scourge
I'm hesitant to get extremely excited until I'm sure this is true. If it is, Aw, yeeeeeah!
Foster
I've seen this time and time again when toys aren't in the computer. I'm not going to waste gas all over town looking just yet, but that's not something I ever do unless the first sighting is here in town.

Later waves.
NothingHead
Is there any way to direct Hasbro's attention to this thread? Like to all the Arcee/Animated love going on, so they can see that this property/this character need more consideration than they've been given?
SpencimusPrime
Houston, Texas, you say.
edicius
Five bucks? Boy, that's really gonna hurt for those people who just spent over $100 on eBay for one!
Lock Cade
Oh goodie... more TFs to go and find.
ToddJumper

Awww shucks. I don't have a Toys'R Us up here in Meadville. I guess I have to wait until it goes live on the TRU site or try and bum one off some lucky collector here.
Omega Charge

The first sighting was iffy but this confirms it. I will be calling TRU every weekend until I find them. Do you have a UPC or anything we can use?

Edit: Also no need to apologize for the double post. You could post that picture a hundred times for all I care. Seeing that many on a peg makes me a little more hopeful these won't be too rare.

Not surprising that the Ratchets appear to outnumber the Arcees.

Read it.

Animated Arcee wasn't in the system, so they scanned a ROTF toy instead.


Also: YAHYIPNABBARGHIPPYAH.... I just peed on myself. I hope these show up in Canada soon.

I see three to two. He may have the third Arcee in his other hand.

STOLEN!

Well, hopefully not. I want these two pretty badly.

To be fair we can't see who is behind a few of the Ratchet's. I would be surprised if they aren't packed in a 1:1 ratio.

Yeah, you're right. I'm just afraid that the Arcees will sell out in a flash leaving an army of Ratchets on the shelves.
