    I knew it! X10. They probably have a pool going on to see how rabid us fanboys will get over this. They probably have betting pools for everytime their phone rings inquiring about Soundwave. They are most likely making more money by holding it back compared to what they make hourly lol

    I said it before but: if all of this TRU stress was planned from the beginning specifically to freak out the fandom, that would be AWESOME

    I know that isn't true, but the thought of corporate bigwigs taking shots and high fiving while reading the boards is too fantastic to not hope for.

    The coupon is good through the 17th so you will still be able to use it if they put them online on the 17th.

    Thanks for this tip. I have no doubt that the warehouse is packed with Soundwaves and thy're waiting for a big release building up hype for a huge cash in.

    TRU should have it down by now, what is this the 5th MP release through TRU.com? Their e-commerce and logistics between stores still needs ironing out.

    Found both today at local TRU in South Jersey. Don't go by the "Find In Stores" link on the website. It told me there were none in my area but i stopped by TRU on the way from home anyway to see and they were both in stock...

    They probably wait till tomorrow or Monday to make sure you can't use the 15% off coupon.

    Yeah, that would make the most sense (for TRU that is). I have a feeling that they have more than enough stock, possibly enough to shelf-warm for months. The only downside (besides the waiting) is that I expect the price to go up a bit by that time.

    IMO, those who want him will be able to get him eventually... Those lucky enough to grab him early, get him at a lower price (plus coupon).

    Sadly I think this is the fastest selling MP ever, and he's all sold out in the states. Hope I am wrong though, but taking the in store option off worries me. When that happened with MP-10 that was the last we saw of him anywhere.

    I have a sinking feeling some of you will be extremely disappointed when SW gets no more restocks.

    Good news is that the product is still listed on the site. When it is totally sold out, never to be restocked they take it down completely.

    Squawktalk, can you snoop and find out the updated online release date please?

    There's so much rumors about MP SW. SW was harder for me to obtain than TRU MP Prime. Hasbro could be making way more profit if they didn't put it in te hands of TRU to make it a Ex as many have said before.

    Subject: SUGGESTION FOR MP
    Date: Fri, 16 Aug 2013 13:38:37 -0500

    HI EXCUSE ME, WHY YO DONT HAVE THE MASTERPIECE LINE AS A SHARED ESCLUSIVE WITH YOUR ONLINE STORE THEY ARE THE MORE REQUESTED TOYS BY FANS I THINK IT WOULD BE BETTER TO HAVE THEM AS ONLINE EXCLUSIVE LIKE THE ULTIMATE GIFT SET OF GENERATIONS AND METROPLEX TOYRUS IS CRAZY TO DEAL WITH THEM ESPECIALLY WITH PEOCPLE TRYING TO GET SOUNDWAVE OUTSIDE USA IN EUROPE AN D IN LATIN AMERICA IT IS CRAZY YOU ARE LOOSING GLOBAL MARKET SINCE A LOT OF PEOPLE GO FOR THE JAPANESE VERSION , THE ONLY WAY TO FOUND THEM IS ON EBAY AND AT THE SAME PRICE AS THE JAPANESE VERSIONS, SCALPERS ARE EVEN TOYRSUS EPLOYEERS SELL THEM LIKE 50 DOLLARS MORE ON EBAY , ALSO I AM SURE YOU ARE AWARE OF THIS BUT A LOT OF FANS DONT SEE THE POINT OF RELEASING BEAST HUNTER TOYS ON THE PLATINUM I GOT A RECOMENDATION FOR THE PLATINUN LINE:


    FOR NEW YORK COMIC CON

    1.POWERLINX ARMADA HOT SHOT VS POWERLINX ARMADA STARSCREAM WITH THE ORIGINAL ONE MINICOM AN MAYBE A PVC STAR SABER

    2. USING THE ROBOT MASTERS ( TAKARA 2004 LINE) DELUXE OPTIMUS PRIMAL AND BEAST MEGATRON NOT THE HORRIBLE DELUXE FROM CYBERTRON ( WITHOUT OFFENDING BOTH SUCKS)

    OPTIMUS PRIMAL VS BEAST MEGATRON WITH THE SAME PAINT AS THE TELEMOCHA SERIES FROM TAKARA
    I THINK IT WOULD BE A GREAT IDEA MEGATRON WON THE HALL OF FAME AND THE OPTIMUS PRIMAL WOULD BE IN SCALE WITH THE SEASON 1 STAFF


    so what i said people we have to unite write something like this and sent it to them or you can even copy it and send it
    "UNITED WE CAN DO IT "
