    I'm glad you were able to get him. I usually don't go to the Muncie Toys R Us but when I woke up on Friday I randomly decided to call the Muncie one after Castleton told me they would never get them (the phrase the guy used was "not authorized to get them" or something like that.) You can at least rest easy knowing they are in good non-scalper hands. :)

    Yes, glad you found one and to see they're showing up here! Out of curiosity, I'm assuming it was the east side TRU, right?

    I was at TRU Greenwood this morning looking for Thundercracker and the employee said that one guy bought all of them yesterday. So... if anyone sees one please let me know.

    Oddly enough there is an eBay auction with the seller located in Greenwood. He sold one MP Thundercracker yesterday and has another current auction for him as of right now. How much you want to bet one or two more figures pop up from that same seller? Damn scalpers.

    Hey, Just got back from my Richmond Meijer. They nearly identical to the above post...however, in Prime deluxes they HAD an Arcee and Soundwave. They also had a Scremer and Cyberverse Vehicon. I left the Vehicon for now. Their prices were the same as above as well, making them my new tf stop No.1. I can't believe the $4 difference between them and Wal-Mart.

    Speaking of Wal-Mart, they did a re-set and brought out 3 cases of the 1st Prime wave...Yippee! NOT! But they do have FoC deluxes minus Shjockwave, and had many weaponizer Primes and a couple Optimus Maximus's. They can keep em.

    G.a.P.[/QUOTE]

    Yeah, forgot to mention they had a Soundwave at Meijer too; I already picked up the lone Arcee

    That shit REALLY pisses me off. I have been going to the Greenwood TRU nearly every day waiting and looking since I first saw the shelf sticker last week, now I cant get one unless I pay double what it is worth. :scalper  :mad

    I'd really like to get an MP Thundercracker without ordering it from scalpers on e-bay. :/

    I almost wonder if the guy works for TRU. When I was there Friday they still showed none in their computers.

    This guy is most likely the scalping culprit. Name matches the ebay name too.

    Merrillville had 4 this morning, all gone now after my trip over. The good news is according to the employees at my local store, there are still plenty in the distrubution center. 504 I think was what the number was.

    ^^

    Myself and PorkchopKB bought 2 of the 4 (1 each). One of them was on hold behind the counter and 1 was left on the shelf at the Merrilville TRU. Did you get the last 2?

    LOL! I live 15 minutes from the IL/IN boarder. I try to stay on my side, but I've noticed through posting majority of TFW members in IN are from Lafayette on to the Indy area.

    Somebodies gotta hit the NW corner!!! :D 


    edit:

    Oh and PorkChop lives in Crowne Point.

    I have a hard time believing they even hit the shelf. I was there around midday, and there was no space on the shelf for them. Either works there, or had some "help." i only need one, not all.

    Hey I just got back into collecting transformers about a year ago, and Know a lot about master piece, except one piece of crucial information. How much do they actually cost for the legitimate retail, not scalper, and not "collector" store price?
