    Bought mine at TRU Trois-Rivières today. Credit goes to Guy Dubé who bought his yesterday from the same store.

    I ponder over getting this. But I mostly want it for the Golden Disks only.

    Soon as I start paid training I’m signing up for a Hasbro Pulse account. I’m SICK AF of everyone finding all these figures I want in stores in OTHER COUNTRIES while I almost never find them in person myself

    I thought Pulse would help me be one of the early ones to get figures but this stuff shows up in stores months and months before they ever get them to me.

    Meanwhile TRU's online component sent out delay notifications last week on web orders with no info on when it would be made available.

    Oh well, at least it's doing better than the Commander Class Rodimus Prime, which had a bunch of its online pre-orders cancelled with vague promises that customers whose orders were cancelled would be reserved copies in local stores to purchase as a make good (while ignoring that TRU's history of getting solid amounts of stock in on popular or limited-run figures is iffy at best)

    long story short: TRU is a mess. A conflicting, outdated, random mess.

    Facts.

    the Ark isnt available on the TRU website anymore and Walmart.ca says its sold out (unavailable) in store and online.

    ... old school searching is back! its like the 90s all over again.

    Again, this is where either BBTS or having a Hasbro Pulse account would be a major asset

    Comes Fall it'll be everywhere, same for Rodimus. And no rush in getting that one guys, honestly, it's totally overpriced for what is it. Scorponok, Omega, Trypticon and Metroplex are all vastly superior Titans.

    I've managed to find all my preordered stuff before Pulse but holding onto my Rodimus and Ark preorders just incase it turns out like Sky Lynx and Scorponok where I only saw them once and never again at retail.

    Actually what is most infuriating is seeing it in the stores, great condition "ahh I will wait for my pre-order to fulfill".. pre-order arrives with damage from someone dragon punching the box!

    Meanwhile tru's site also lists Kingdom Arcee as "coming soon" even though it's practically a pegwarmer at some locations and has been for a couple months.

    Their site is so clunky and unreliable.that you'd swear it was still 2004.




    Pulse shipping costs to Canada are murder from what I'm told.

    As they are for most of those specialty stores who don't offer free shipping thresholds on international orders.

    My GF ordered me one for my birthday so I'm golden ( :confused2  )

    Had it not been the case, I would have probably got it just for the "accesories". Mainframe > Teletraan I, Sky Spy and the Golden Disks are more appealing to me than tjat Ark itself.

    I might have been interested in this if it was a playset only. Having a bot mode kinda ruined it for me. Would have been a killer legends or core display.
