    $60 is surprisingly good for that toy, considering the other versions lately were way overpriced. But I have MP 11 with the gear. And my old modded walmartscream

    Well I just had an amazing TRU experience. So like I said yesterday, wyomissing TRU had two starscreams, one was bought and the other one went missing. So after watching the employee runaround like a chicken with its head cut off, he just took my info and said he would let me know if they found it. I had only one thought, yeah right. Like that will happen. I got out of work today, and cheeked my phone. Turns out he found it this morning and gave me a call. But he also put it on hold for me, so right after work I went straight to TRU. Best experience is ever had there. Oh and I love this mold. Now I really really wish I would have gotten thunder cracker.

    Well, it seems I missed the one day window in which mp starscream was actually available west of pittsburgh. Seems that all the tru stores are pretty well cleaned out in a single day, and in store pickup never was available at all, as I checked consistently. I seriously hope these stores get more than 2 each, or it looks like mp Soundwave all over again.

    Did you actually go to the store or rely on the website? Because the website will say they have them and don't, or say they don't have them and actually do.

    Calling or going to the stores is the only option if you didn't preorder at TRU.com or the preorder was cancelled.

    Was approximately 6 or so MP Screamers at WB TRU. Incredibly surprised they actually had him, and for $59.99. After the 15% off coupon, my $5 TRU Rewards, and a $20 gift card I had, ended up getting him for around $28!

    I'm very tempted by the low price, but yeah, I'd rather have the coronation set. It's a huge markup to have to pay, but it just doesn't feel like Starscream to me without the cape and crown. :\

    For anyone in Philly, according to TRU's site, the South Philly and Aramingo Ave location has MP Starscream available for store pick up. Maybe a good idea for anyone who is local, since its the a-Pope-calyptic weekend.\

    EDIT: Horsham location shows it in stock now for ship to store!

    Edit 2: Horsham now shows OOS for pick up, but Exton now shows available for pick up.

    I may try to find Starscream now. I wasn't going to, but with the announcement of MP Shockwave :) rock :music  :rock ), I think I've decided to do a MP Decepticon shelf. Don't need the other Seekers, just Starscream.

    Anyway, Chambersburg area's kind of a downer:
    Target- Ultra Magnus, Armada Megatron, 2X Hot Spot and Cyclonus, some NuRiD junk and a solo Off Road. They also have the Rhino wave of the Legends in, and SW 6" Black series restocked.
    Five Below- bunch of AoE Battlers Lockdowns and Vehicons.
    TJ Maxx- I freakin' missed the Kreon Shockwave pack! DAMMIT! All they had were Bumblebee and Hound.

    Has anyone opened their MP Starscream yet? Just curious, because I have some small issues with mine, and I want to know if they're common or just mine.

    Scored an MP Starscream with in store pickup at Bethel Park TRU. A bit of a drive, but glad to have him in hand. Seems Okay so far, but haven't transformed him yet. As long as it all checks out, it won't be long before my Wal-Mart Screamer goes up for sale.

    Mine has been pretty standard. The small leg wings fall off pretty easy. The left leg was a real bitch to extend the first time. The chest thrusters bend inwards slightly. Nothing too bad, but a few noticeable quirks.

    Boothwyn Walmart has 2 CW Hotspots on the clearance island at the end of the toy aisles. Snagged the last Cyclonus they had.
