    Dark of the Moon Jetwing Optimus Prime at ToysRUs.com!?

    Transformers Optimus Prime Jetwing - Hasbro - Toys "R" Us

    An interesting discovery! I don't know if this has been reported yet. Wasn't this just an Amazon or some sort of shared exclusive at some point in the past? I think it would be cool to snag one in a TRU store. The listing DOES say it's sold in stores but there's no way to check which stores have it online at this point in time.

    Great to for $100. Even better when Amazon had it for $65.

    Pretty sure it was an Amazon exclusive and I don't think the US has got any version of Jetwing at retail before.

    Yea, if Amazon puts it up on sale again, I may have to pick up a few of them for trade fodder down the road. That turd of a Leader Prime from the new movie should increase demand for this thing as the fans start jumping back on the bandwagon next year. One I snagged was when they dropped it down to $52ish last year.

    I got mine for $65 during that sale too. But totally worth the $100, easy!

    I'd love to own that mold again. Include the jetting armor and the deal's even sweeter. I missed out on the $65 sale.

    Amazon must've dumped some of their stock.


    It's a shame this guy hasn't sold well as it's an awesome toy for a great price.

    It's all interesting to note that it is listed as only "Sold in Stores." So you can't order it, but I'm wondering if we'll start seeing it on TRU shelves soon.

    It sure is. It's the best add on for ROTF leader Optimus besides the 3rd party Jetfire jetpack.

    The scan is legit, and that looks like the exact same product as the Amazon one.

    I wondered where this was going to go, he's been listed on the site for a few weeks now.

    Toysrus

    Awesome price for a wonderful figure. Now to debate fighting the masses for one.

    Also it appears that Prime RiD Deluxes will be BOGO free, nothing else TF related in the ad.

    So, if this is Legit, should I try and get one? Because I'm not adverse to owning both Leader Class prime molds that are good.
