    They're pricks about the collector items.

    The CP TRU had a scalper on staff in the Grimlock/Rodimus MP age. Not sure if he's still working there anymore. I stopped with MPs years ago, aside from the occasional piece.

    MY QUESTION TO THE CAPITAL DISTRICT FANS


    Any of the local TRUs have strafe's evolutions set? I tried the Queensbury one today with no luck while taking my kids to the Great Escape.

    Not exactly a traditional sighting but the Dave and Busters at Crossgates has the new arcade game. It's pretty fun but the voice acting is terrible.

    When Mp Thundercracker was hard to find, and I knew there were how ever many there, from a post here, I left immediately. I was all of 15mins away eating, got there, there were none left. I asked the woman working the register if she could run the upc and all that, they should have had 2 or 3 still. Another worker came up front, woman asked him in passing, he said only damaged ones that he felt needed to be removed from the shelf, that were locked in the office. Now, Im in a chair most times, I feel like had I not been, there wouldnt have been any TCs there.

    Sorry for the OT ramble

    Went to the Atlantic Terminal Target today in Brooklyn. No swerve or cosmos, no deluxe or leader AoE stuff. Only had 1 Grimlock and Optimus voyagers.

    I called TRU this morning, the service desk couln't even locate the item(500256), not in their system. So i decided to go tru.com for live chat.. here's what they say about MP grimlock.

    Thank you for shopping with Toys "R" Us! Please wait for an agent to respond. Your approximate wait time is 2 second(s).
    You are being connected to an agent.
    XXXX: Thanks for chatting with the 'R Us Family! My name is XXXX. I’m your ‘R Us Web Specialist. May I have your name before we get started?

    XXXX: Thank for asking.
    XXXX: How can I help you today?
    You: I have a question, I m looking for a transformers. Transformers Masterpiece grimlock item #500256. They are out in some toysRus stores but Nowhere on the site. when is it available to order online?
    XXXX: At this time there is not Estimated timeframe for shipments to be sent for the eligibility to purchase online.
    You: that means we could ONLY purchase this exclusive item INstore? is that correct?
    XXXX: Yes that is correct/
    XXXX: Is there anything else I can help you with today?
    You: yes. on more thing about this item.
    XXXX: Certainly!
    You: I know that it is retailed for $59.99. It has been out for about a week now in some places. Initially it was selling for retail, then a few days later some TRUs were selling it at $79.99, now some people say that stores are quoting them at $99.99 a piece. why is there such a price hike? thanks
    XXXX: That I am not quite sure about to be honest.
    XXXX: When they first were released it could have been a promotion price and then could have went to a sale price and now could be the original price.
    You: thanks for being honest. As far as i know know there was no promo price and it was the msrp on the inquiry.
    XXXX: You are welcome.
    You: hope you could answer another question for me. Is this item going to be very limited run? because alot of people tried to buy it and ccouldnt seem to find one.
    You: are stores going to be get enough stock? seems like some stores are only getting 4 items per stock.
    You: and they sell out within mins.
    XXXX: At this time that it has been only released on the west coast but it is due to have a full release on the east coast in December and there will be full shipments arriving in stores/
    You: ok cool. one last question. when TRU.com has this item for purchase, is it going to be $59.99 as stated earlier? thanks
    XXXX: I do believe so.
    You: thank you very much for your help. have a great day.

    Well that's it, don't know how credible it is. we'll just have to see.

    The 3 sets of figurines are out at Commack TRU. They are kind of expensive. My total came to over $18.00 with tax for five small figures. I'm only getting G1, but inside showed second set of each style. The #2 of G1 is Grimlock, ultra mag is, shockwave, hot rod and of coarse Bee.

    Ebay:
    Doubt they're releasing on the East Coast in December, but she may have misinterpreted that they are holding some back to rerelease when the Blu-Ray of TF4 is on sale for Christmas.

    spoke to another Rep at TRU live.chat..

    here's an extra piece of info as of 4:30pm today

    You: When is Transformers masterpiece Grimlock shipping to the NorthEast Distribution center? because the WEST/Central and SouthEast USA all have this item in stock but None at TRU in the NE region.
    You: item number #500256
    XXXXX: Let me take a look and see what I can find
    You: ok
    XXXXX: I am not showing anything in the inventory. As far as when it will be stocked, we aren't told when an item is going to arrive in the warehouse.
    You: so there's Nothing at the Distribution center in the NE region yet? is that right?
    XXXXX: That is correct
    You: oh i see. When can I expect this item to be avail. on the TRU.com site for purchase? and by the way, How much is this item? thanks
    XXXXX: We aren't told that either, they are adding items all of the time. Retail is currently being listed as $79.99.
    You: ok cool. thanks for all your information.


    so there you go, it's freaking $79.99 now.. if we could find out.. why is the NE region always last to receive anything...?
