    Possibly due to the rarity of the figures and knowing the number of Autobot characters outweigh the number of Decepticon characters released?

    Just throwing this out there, I'm in so-cal LA/OC area and am looking to get rid of my spare TRU Grimlock. HMU if you're interested. Asking price of $100, figured I put it here since I need it gone ASAP and would rather meet up than ship.

    Maybe, but we don't know. I've seen him as high as $79.99, and who knows how high he got before he stopped showing up in stores...

    I remember for both ROTF and DOTM, the Generations lined slowed down, nothing major. But, It seems that AOE figures and toys are just sitting there. It's kinda overkill. The way Hasbro is going, they're going to start losing more people to third party figures. I understand some people are into the movie line, but I want figures that relate more to what I grew up with. Id better stop before I go on rant how poor Hasbro is getting.

    Yeah, with Hasbro's price for Masterpiece Prowl and the stupid distribution and the scalping and so on, I've decided to just go ahead and just start importing the masterpiece figures. :(

    Started importing my masterpiece figures with mp-12 and haven't looked back. Less pressure to hunt for masterpiece figures when they are shipped domesticly.

    Not to mention much cheaper. I currently have MP-wheeljack on order through HLJ for $52 + shipping.

    For reference, this is what I paid for Prowl. $67 shipped to my door in 3 days from japan with tracking. $70 plus tax and having to go out and hunt? No-Thank-you.

    I will have to do this for Sideswipe though, missed him the first time around
    ...and the second
    :/

    Off topic but I know there are ranger fans here. TRU likely will get it earlier than everyone else but not exclusively.

    Power Rangers Mighty Morphin Legacy Megazord Titanus

    Also the SDCC early preview stuff is sneaking online in some ways... the original movie exclusive turtles are listed in some views and the pages exist but currently redirect you back to the home page. Try searching for "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Classic Figure Collection - Original Movie Michelangelo" and you'll get the homepage instead of a search result.

    Soon. ;) 

    And you know if you wanted Agent Venom or Walgreens Exclusive Boba....

    Spider Man Marvel Legends Infinite Series Agent Venom Figure | Walgreens

    I was hoping Titanus was going to be cheaper but I have to preorder that beast. Thanks for the link.

    Lol. The scalpers always show up at my TRU when a new MP is on sale.
