    Excellent, going to have to hunt for Rodimus on the weekend when I go looking for MP Grimlock. Hopefully, I'll be able to find a Rodimus before my BBTS pre-order for the Takara version comes in. I have a feeling this will be like the last wave, though: Ironhide will shelfwarm like Ratchet and Rodimus will be as difficult to find as Arcee.

    I'll go with my son in the morning and see... I only want Rodimus so I can have him on my Animated "Prime" shelf (Optimus, Sentinel, Rodimus, and *cough* Longarm)

    TRU usually puts everything out at once and keeps nothing in the warehouse. Usually if there IS anything extra, they put them in those little bin flaps above the pegs. They were all out of PCC 5 packs tonight, so maybe they'll get wave 2 in tomorrow.. hopehopehope...

    Eeep! I hope I can find these eventually. I found Cybertron Mode Ratchet and Arcee no problem (in fact Toys R Us always has them whenever I go now) so as long as I find 'em eventually I'm not worried... I mean, it's not like I need 'em NOW lol.

    Yeah, I got mindwipe last week, my TRU usually has a huge amount of animated figs. When I went for my weekly buy this week there was only 1 peg of animated with a snarl, a few oil slicks, and 1 cybertron mode ratchet. There are a ton of generations, lots of wfc bumblebees and primes, quite a few drifts and thrusts too. I ended up getting drift. And my TRU gets trucks on Tuesdays and I'm usually there at open on tuesdays to make sure I beat scalpers (if we even have any) and wait around for them to stock the TF's. But I do believe rodimus and ironhide should be in next Tuesday.. I hope. I do have the TA-33 Rodimus on reserve from TFSource as well, I just wanted the hasbro version to pose on the shelf and fiddle around with.. Scalpers are a huge pain...

    I'm going to wait for Takara's Rodimus, Cybertron Ratchet and Ironhide. It's the only way I'm going to see these molds, in this part of the world, at an affordable price. But it's good to hear some people here have them.

    Dang it, wasn't expecting to see anything else so soon but guess I'll make a stop at TRU tomorrow morning then. Then again might just grab Rodimus Minor at best if I do find anything.

    It just won't happen now, Hasbro don't want to spend any more money on animated then they have to. Your only chance for an Autotrooper is the club, or a custom.

    No it's not. It's where people kick the living shit out of each to get their hands on just released mass produced toys, and it has been for years.


    We're not talking convention items, or items released only at retail overseas.

    They're exclusive to a large toy retailer in a large toy market.

    In a month, these will be at saturation, a month after that the scalpers who bought shopping carts full of them won't be able to shift them at their cost.

    Well I'll have to keep an eye out here in NE Ohio. Maybe they will pop up soon.
