Toys R Us Exclusive Masterpiece Grimlock Update

For those of you itching to find out what's going on with the highly anticipated, Toys R Us exclusive, Masterpiece Grimlock, 2005 boards member ChEriKs has come through with updated information on the release and pricing details:

For those of you wanting to run out and start checking stores don't get so excited. TRU will have a booth at SDCC this year and are bringing in the first shipment to sell there. Grimlock will not be on .com or in any store before then. This does NOT mean that the day after SDCC he will be in all stores, just that you will absolutely not find him before then.

Oh, and the correct everyday retail should be $59.99.


So there you have it folks, we are a few months away from seeing our favorite Dinobot leader at retail!

Josh

Josh
frikken double post
Might Gaine
says "Out of Stock" now
robvega214
that was fast
Sportimus
Sold out already? Crappers...
Might Gaine
Probably was a fluke that it said "In stock" at all.
Satanatron
Don't worry I discovered and it couldn't place an order.
Satanatron
At least we know the price.
Bumblebee028
$100?!?!?!?! Umm, they better keep it at sale prices, or this is gonna suck MAJORLY. I was okay looking at MP Skywarp for 60, so I woulda thought grimlock would be 60 too.....

I successfully placed an order at 615am. After tax and shipping it came out to $70.

I thought the same thing. You can get Skywarp cheap on Ebay. I got mine for 30 bucks including shipping.
siekone
DAMN!!
Smokescreen
If it goes for $100 in stores, then I won't be getting one. I'll just stick with the Takara version I already have.
Deceptigtar
im pretty sure the pic of it too is the takara version?!
Cujo
it just let me order him... for $59
Human Beastbox
Whelp..."Out-of-stock" again.

Whatever. Sometimes I hate wanting toy robots at all.
Ceerad
Yeah, it's reading "in stock" again but won't add to shopping cart.

This isn't a glitchy mess or anything. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.
MegaPrime33
I'm still extremely curious to see what the packaging is going to look like on this.
wipedout
Mine has already been processed and located in the warehouse. Not a fluke or glitch.

Hmpph.

Cool.
Cujo

BScorpinok75
For what $59 I may actually be able to fit MP Grimlock in my budget.
Smasher
I'm not sure where you guys are seeing the $100.
I see $60.

I also see 'out of stock'.
Robogeek28
Gonna hafta keep an eye on this then. I may not collect anymore but I still needs me a Grimlock!!

List price: $99.99
Our price: $59.99
Mechafire
Sold out.

Hopefully he comes out in stores soon.
adamthered
Dammit, sold out already?!
Optimus Vader
So.. this is out now? Or this was an early online type of thing or what?
ChErikS
No, it isn't out. Eveyone listen to me here because I am the only one who knows for sure. There are no Grimlocks at TRU yet, not at .com, not in the stores, they haven't even been delivered to the warehouses. Any of you who got orders through expect to have them either cancelled or be waiting a long time.

Also, contrary to this image, he is boxed in dino mode, not robot.

The price is right, I'll be buying him when he appears in the laminated book of dreams.

He works for TRU IIRC and is usually in the know with TRU matters.
Dirge121
Definately planning on adding one of these to my collection!
Im wondering how they plan to justify $100 for it though
The inevitable shelf warming 100 Grimlocks will be hilarious.

That can't possibly be the price.. can it? (talking about $100)

The $60 "sale price" they had on the site seems more accurate. I thought I read on here somewhere that in Canada he was already listed for about $65.

Its a simple marketing tactic put the actual price as a so called sale price then put a higher retail/list/regular price at a significant price above said "sale" price.

Makes people believe they are getting a hell of a deal when they aren't.
Robogeek28
I'm hoping to be able to pick two of these guys up to display in both modes. He'll be my first Transformers purchase in a long time.

Has he even been seen in-package yet?
Sideswipe80
Sold out already???
General Tekno
What's interesting about the photo used is that apparently it's not even an official photograph.

Can't take credit for pointing this out though - it's S250 who did so on Twitter.

^Exactly! The sale price is actually the actual price. One question though, since this is the Hasbro version, this is the Grimlock is the one with the rounded teeth and clipped claws right?
General Tekno
Yeah - it'll have the rounded teeth/clipped claws in all likelyhood, to conform to North American safety laws.

Which makes complete sense, and is not a dealbreaker for me personally. It's a cheap Grimlock with the accessory I give a crap about (the crown), so I'm not complaining.
Tigertrack
So is this available now? Should I be going to local Toys R Us to find Masterpiece Grimlock today or this week? I should be back home from California end of the week, but I dont want to miss out.
