    Target eagle rock only has the simplified figures and the awful non transforming foot tall figures

    Target Burbank had one each of Cosmos and Swerve, but I scooped them up. Sorry gang!
    On the plus side, they had all their AoE crap out, including the stealth Optimus, which I kind of dig for it's classic over-cab original alt mode, but once again they take the front windows and move them elsewhere OTHER than his chest, replacing them with that silly split-window front window that's even tinier than the vehicle's actual windows. Whoever's designing these things is wasting design space (they also did that with the upcoming Jetfire with the false nosecose on his chest).

    That guy who found the Grimlock re-issue first though sounds like a real winner--scooped up all six the store had, claiming he was "buying them for friends".
    Somehow I don't buy that, and neither do most others.

    I called one TRU here in SoCal (Tustin) and they said not in stock, no idea when it would come.

    I'm counting on nabbing one online anyway, that's how I luckily scored MP Optimus and Soundwave. Never saw them at retail, not that I looked very hard.

    Those are the simplified figures, not the Generations Deluxes.

    I knew they would just put it back out. Lame. No collector is going to buy it and no parent is going to be critical enough to notice, so their kid will be the one getting disappointed.

    The head is in the box. It just fell off the ball joint. I considered opening the package and putting it back on, but decided I did not want to get in trouble for that.

    I'm broke, or I would just buy it and then put the head on and return it, but I can't do that with no income.

    Forget about the Walmart in Orange. They aren't going to stock Transformers. They replaced the section with Godzilla stuff.

    WOW!!!!

    Really low of this guy to buy 10 Masterpieces Grimlocks and sell them for $150. Don't say anything bad or he will report you. Scalper?? :( 

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/items-sale-trade/986159-new-tru-mp-grimlock-misb.html :scalper :scalper :scalper :scalper 

    TRUs in LA La Cienega Blvd has plenty of stuff for kids. Deluxes BB and Crosshairs; no leaders and a few voyagers Grimlocks.

    No Masterpieces. I was told there is nothing; not even in the warehouse.

    True. Saw them today and notice the difference.

    No need for AOE toys or MP Grimlock means money saved
