I got him at Toyrus
Aww shit... There was a pair of each at my TRU in Riverside, if I had known I would have swiped the other two and held them for you.
Hate for scalpers...
For everyone who hates what scalpers do.. Just simply don't buy from them.. I got on eBay to see how much rodimus minor was going for.. Bids starting out at $24USD and buy it nows at $80USD?! The only reason they keep doing this is because people keep buying from them.. Simply if we don't buy and they have to keep paying $3-$5 to post on eBay where they're wasting money.. Let them waste money. The only way for us to get them from scalpers at a fair price is if we hold out until they decide to do the right thing and sell for retail and whatever their state's tax addition is.. If there's anyone who has a TRU with a rodimus minor, if you would pick an extra up for myself, I would gladly reimburse you with $2 over what came out of your pocket + shipping charges (REASONABLE shipping charges) to send one to me. Through paypal of course. But that's about it lol. Unless someone is just cool and nice enough to start doing that, then I guess we have to wait it out. I live in northern Louisiana and this guy hasn't hit my TRU yet, but I'm hoping for next week, if I have the cash to get a few extras, I'll gladly put them on eBay for what came out of my pocket and no ridiculous scalper price.. That is unless, any scalpers here (if we have any) doesn't beat me to the store.
rodimus minor looks like rattrap
Yeah, but at a stupid price... To pay close to $90 with shipping for a $12 figure is absurd.. If anyone was smart they'd just order a takara one for a solid $30 and/or wait until their TRU gets a delivery and do what they can to get there first
Could you do the rest of us a favor, please, and post the item #?
well this is out alot sooner then i expected, i thought they would show up in a month or more time.
True, but that doesn't mean hope can't exist.
It just means the next couple batches will be all repaints if TRU chooses only the Deluxe route, which would probably kill the want for the exclusives, which would then kill the chances of the voyagers. That's all I'm saying. Unique characters/molds sell. Random repainted figures really don't.
11 pages and I still havent seen anyone post a SKU number for Rodimus and Ironhide. I would save a little gas and use alot of my unlimited minutes by calling TRU..
Seriously? Doesn't anyone else think that they might still sell Animated through the Generations line?
And another figure we'll never see down here in Chile or the rest of S.America.
Instead we get stores full of bumblebee helmets and cheap watches! God job hasbro LA!
Slightly off topic but how is this...
...In response to this?:
Hilarious though it may be.
Except obviously that's not true otherwise Hasbro would not make these "random" repaints.
The movie exclusives and dollar store figures are different, I'm talking about animated only. They made the repaints as ways to recoup costs per mold, and to be filler to round out waves better. It's just good business. That doesn't mean they fly off the shelves like these will.
I want one!
MUST. BE. PATIENT! gah i am wanting it like to be in the mail to me right this second. trying to control the impulse to get this asap is gonna be a tough one.
ALL repaints are meant to recoup the costs of a mould. And yes, they do sell. Again, Hasbro doesn't make something unless they have reason to believe it will sell.
I think I just want Rodimus in this line. The only two Animated figures I wish they would have done are a Teenage Suri and Omega Surpreme.
Haven't found Rodimus yet. but when I do...I'm buying "all" of them
