    Can anyone tell me if the toysrus on broadway has the wave 2 AoE generations deluxes slash or strafe or the evolution packs? Is the toysrus the best place to find exclusive transformers?
    where is the best place to find these deluxes in The city? Target? Walmart?
    I live abroad and some friends are visiting NY so they are gonna help me finding these tformers.
    I really appreciate your help guys! :)

    1) Can't help you there, I'm afraid. TS TRU employees can be a bit stringent in how they implement the price matching policy but there's no real harm in trying.

    2) I haven't seen an MP Grimlock there, and I've checked a few times over the past couple of weeks.

    I'm assuming that you mean the Toys"R"Us (TRU) in Times Square. I saw a couple of the Strafe and Slug evolution packs there this past Friday. They also had a bunch of the Grimlock evolution packs. They are all TRU exclusives in the United States, I think. I saw neither Slash nor Drift, but there were a bunch of the wave 2 voyagers - mostly Galvatrons - if you are interested. I would ask your friends if they could check earlier in the morning - that's when I've had the best luck finding stuff there.

    I saw one each of Drift, Slash, and Strafe at the Target on East 117th Street in Manhattan this afternoon. They also had the Wave 1 voyagers and deluxes. I would try to get the Strafe and Slug evolution packs at TRU, though - they're priced similarly. There are some reports of the Target exclusive Silver Knight Optimus Prime/Fall of Cybertron Grimlock repaint two-packs having been spotted in the area but I have yet to come across one.

    I hope that the above information is helpful. Good luck!

    Thanx bro...you helped me a lot...
    Do you know where to find transformers movie tshirts ? Or do they only sell non movie transformers tshirts? Where can i find both?

    So nobody buys the galvatrons? That figure does not look to bad at all because the backpack collapses in my opinion

    I already have the drift and the hound voyager :)

    tRU caser bay brookyn, as of this morning, had 2 MP grimlock, many AoE.

    the weird thing is the TF Generations deluxe which they had for $15.99 last week in now $17.99 each this week. wtf...tru.
    but ofcourse you could always price match them to walmart(rollback week) for $9.97 each.

    Thanks for the heads up on the Prime/Grimlock 2-Pack. Just picked one up at Colonie Target. One with a busted corner still left. Grimlock looks cool. Not wild about Prime.

    Well you have 3 options

    1)When you go pay, just tell the cashier that you have a coupon code you got through email. Ask them to enter 967215 and it will automatically go down to $74.00.

    2)Or print out a receipt of a fellow member who purchase a MP Grm in the west coast(search... it's here somewhere) for $59.99 and see if the cashier/guest service would price match that.

    3)Or print out the TRU.com ad(search for it, it's here) and price match it for $79.99

    regardless of whichever, it's better than paying TRU store's jackup price.
