Thanks so much! you saved me a lot of time & gas. You're the best!
Sorry...tried to help.
Nice of them to jack the price up $20 online...although I'm sure it's only a matter of time before they do the same in-store.
They've been doing it in store for a while. Rumor is that the $60 price is left over from the old Grimlock release, and they were supposed to be $80 from the start.
My friend who got one in the Cincy area in store said they were already marked at 79.99. People will have to be lucky to find an old shelf tag. I saw the one from Oklahoma/Arkansas or wherever it was someone had that shelf tag, but probably because they hadnt corrected yet.
Thank you! Now I can stop going to TRU everyday
It's been removed from there site
Mine shows "Item(s) located in Warehouse". I'm hopeful. I ordered at like 7am this morning, the same minute I woke up and saw tweets from friends on my phone. I'll be damned if I'm giving 100+ to some scalper on Ebay.
why did they take it down already?
Because they sold out. TRU has no earthly idea how to manage inventory or take preorders, so it will reappear randomly over the next few weeks, sell out quickly, and then disappear again.
My order says backordered
At least it didn't go straight to cancelled. Hopefully you'll at least reserve one out of the next shipment.
yea, backordered isn't bad
I'm going to buy it at retail instead
Good luck man!
I was trying to order mp Grimlock from the Tru website today around 4:00 pm (Est). One of those "chat now" with a rep pop up. Here is the important part of the conversation.

Jesse: Thanks for chatting with the 'R Us Family! My name is Jesse. I’m your ‘R Us Web Specialist. May I have your name before we get started?
You: I'm looking for a transformers masterpiece grimlock figure. It was online earlier today. I can't find it now.
Jesse: I will be happy to assist you with this today. This item was available online and it sold out very quickly. How early this morning were you on the site?
You: I notice it around 9 am. Do you know when it will be available again? Or will the figure going to be in New York City stores any time soon ?
Jesse: IT is still up on the website, we are just unable to process more orders on it until we get more in stock. The release date doesn't look to be until november so it's hard to say when it will be available again.
Jesse: The majority of stores wont have it although some store have been able to get ahold of some early releases. You will have to check with the stores about it directly.
You: If the figure comes back into stock will it be posted on line again ?
Jesse: We do offer the option on the item page for you to add your email to a list. Once the item is available again an email will go out.
Jesse: Would you like a link to the item page so you can sign up for the email?
You: Yes please
Jesse: One moment let me prepare the link.
Jesse: So sorry for the inconvenience, it looks like the IT dept removed the item page.
Jesse: The link no longer works. So very sorry!
Jesse: I can get you the item information though.
