    I won't be scalping or anything...But when I find them I'll be sure to pick up at least two of each. One set for myself and one set for Internet Personality Vangelus.
    ...Or you know, anyone else who really wants them. :D

    No TRUs anywhere near me; looks like I'll be paying $70+ to get them on eBay...

    Just got back from my TRU, and nothing new... I'll check again tomorrow, since they get their trucks on thursdays. I wonder what time they get the truck...?

    I'd assume before opening, may want to call the double check though. I'll be checking on Friday, just hope they put them out as the Animated pegs are stuffed with Arcee(never thought I'd type that)

    I fully expect the TRU nearest me to get in like 20 cases of these just like they did with Arcee. Only question to me is will one of them pegwarm like Ratchet from the Arcee cases did - there's still around a dozen of them and no other TFA Deluxes at that store.

    I agree, I am so sick of scalpers. I usually find stuff at my 2 locations in Little Rock. Feel free to email me with a wish [email protected] If I have the extra cash I'll pick one up and post a buy it now for retail and shipping in ebay, and not a penny more!!! We have to stick together, this shite is old!!!!!!!

    Early. I have a friend who works there and his truck shifts start at 6 AM. Maybe they're not all the same though, I dunno.

    Personally, I think this is very likely, especially given the number of "Cybertron Series" and "Armada Series" figures from Universe 2.0. It wouldn't make much sense for Hasbro to not get any use out of those molds. When Generations starts including Voyagers, I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see Wingblade Prime and Blackout. At the very least, I'm sure we'll see the Deluxe repaints.

    Here here.. I agree. Because of the flood of scalpers I am having a hard time selling transformers for even less that store price.. I could barely find Mindwipe about a month ago and now can't sell mine because of 50 or so on there now. I will never pay more than store price - unless the rare occasion it is a rare item like Skystalker or an old one I really want.

    Hehe also when I was at TRU tonite, the store was called three times within 10 minutes on people wants to come buy rodimus and ironhide.. Scalpers calling ahead of schedule or genuine collectors. IT ticked me off because they announced it over the loudspeakers and totally ruined my anticipation of being dissappointed on my own by walking to the isle.
