    Anyone know what the situation is like down south for these? I'm going to be in Oklahoma City this weekend and might try to score a toy run if possible.

    Mine arrived this morning from tru.com! Very nice figure! Much better than I was expecting. Also I saw reports that some had upside down symbols, but mine is fine.

    Mine just pulled into my local post office. I'll probably be opening it up tomorrow, after it's delivered to my place.

    I got Rodimus and, just today, Cybertron Mode Ironhide from Toysrus.com, so those of you who may have been doubting that "Star Wars Force Battlers General Grevious" was, in fact, Ironhide, well.... there ya go.

    Got my Ironhide aka General Greivous in today as well. Glad I took the gamble, now I dont have to keep searching Toy's r Us for Ironhide or Rodimus.

    Received mine today and it looks like someone along the line used the box as a seat cushion. I shouldn't expect much from UPS Basic, but it's good that I'm not a person who cares about the packaging.

    That said, both Rodimus and Ironhide are still out of stock online, but it looks as though TRU followed their MP Grimlock variable pricing scale and raised the price of the two figures to $14.99. Definitely not a good precedent for TRU to set when they're undoubtedly going to be receiving more exclusives in the future.

    General Grevious is looking kinda orange now-a-days...

    They STILL haven't fixed the labeling on the website, and I even called to report that to their customer service. Just goes to show Toys R Us has no knowledge of what they're selling.

    Anyway, congrats on those who got a successful order with them.

    ^Not in most parts of the US. Here in WA, they went up about 3-4 weeks ago. Feel lucky, a couple places have seen them up to $17+.

    Really? I don't have my receipt anymore but Arcee was 11.99:confused: 

    EDIT: Not that a couple bucks is a big deal but it it seems kinda high to me
