    That sucks if they did that. Especially if an employee said "what we have on the shelves is all we have." It could also be possible they got the previous wave for whatever reason with 2 of each Thuncracker, Wheeljack, Kup, and Scourge. But with the lack of Kup and Scourge, I'm not thinking so.

    I got mine on Monday. I am debating on opening the little baggy though.


    I was at the TRU on Winchester in San Jose today and there was not much in the way of new figures. They did have a bunch of Dirge with the correct style Decepticon insignia on them.

    Which TRU?

    PM me if you have to. I am not a scalper, I will only buy one of each figure for myself.

    You guys know first batch of movie toys almost definitely has a "do not open before [specific date]" label on the shipping boxes.. Might be hard to get them early(?)

    On a different note, was there any news about a Generations or RTS Arcee?

    Yes the boxes have a shelf date printed on them but clueless employees stock them all the time, I've seen and had it happen with many a line

    There is no such thing as Generations/RTS Arcee. The next Arcee coming up is Transformers Prime Arcee in the fall

    Indeed. By all indications, Warpath is the last known CHUG figure in the foreseeable future.

    I think DOTM will be the only TF toy line for the spring / early summer. Maybe mid or late summer we'll start seeing some sort of end-or-line DOTM stuff (like ROTF's Allspark stuff) plus a new set of Generations-ish toys.

    That sucks about Arcee.. I guess it was just a rumor huh?

    I hope we don't have to wait til 2013 for new generations figures... If at all.. With jazz wheeljack and friends released they really have covered most of the bases at this point. Still need arcee, trailbreaker, sixshot tho haha so here's hoping

    Yeah, Hasbro said that the Generations Arcee was going to be Tranformers Prime Arcee, but they decided that Prime will get its own line and not in Generations anymore.

    Anyway, went to Fullerton TRU again this morning only to find out they opened at 9am instead of 10! So it seems from Karhukjnsi that the scalpers were there closer to 10, so I actually beat them to the store! But they didn't get anything!!!!

    They did have the Giant Sized X-Men 5 pack, but sounds like the scalpers grabbed all 5-6 packs they had.

    I might want to (finally) getting one if such deal exists in my area as well.... but so far not every Target store discounting the same kind of items..

    I got DOTM Leader BumbleBee and Sentinel Prime @ East Pasadena Target yesterday. I checked the Availability before I went here, it shown Limited Available. When I got there, the shelf was almost empty, I asked a worker to help me check if there any left, and then, she brought me a Leader BB and SP.

    They better have. I hope they start losing money from all that gas they waste trying to scalp stores.
