    Fellow board member Runamuck sent a pic of the new MP Grimlock at the Toys R Us in Allen, TX (just outside Dallas).

    EDIT: On-shelf pic added. Confirms price at $69.99

    That would be an excellent birthday present. In case I don't get to say so on the 14th, happy birthday! (Funny, that's the birthday of my mom AND my best friend back home.)

    I've got to run and brave the commute. I'll check to see if Runamuck sent any more pics when I get to the office.

    I won't be suprised if they let my .com order cancel itself in 3 weeks. But I shall check out the TRU near me this weekend!

    This price adjustment almost guarantees that the online orders that are "backorderd" will be canceled.
