    I went to Swansea mass ToysRus tonight. No thundercrackers yet. Not even a price tag on the shelf. They do have 1 MP movie Bumblebee for $80 if you feel like having your wallet stung.

    Especially since the "wide release" will be unsold stock at Ollie's, or Tuesday Morning, or something along those lines. This isn't going to show up at Walmart or Target.

    I called my TRU & had them look up the UPC. They got a truck this morning but didn't get him. Next truck is next Thursday. 1100 in the warehouse but apparently they're not shipping him out yet.

    Feels like Grotusque all over again!:rolleyes:

    Nothing to report for Texas. Not even a shipment scheduled. Checked one of the local stores by me and it looks like chaos in here.

    Not even a spot for him at my local one.
    Unless some miracle happens, I won't be seeing Thundercracker at all.

    i called the local TRU in the Houston area. They don't know when they will get another shipment, considering the recent news. Looks like we are f'cked.

    All Toysrus closing in the states. What's going to happen to Thundercracker now?

    I wonder if they will be released in Canada. I don't think it will be worth searching all over just to help some Americans with Thundercracker.

    I think the somewhat reassuring point is that there are physically thousands and thousands of these already made. They have to get released somewhere. I wouldn't worry too much about this one.

    I'm not jumping to any conclusions, but I'm predicting there might be more Wanted threads for this.

    Seems unlikely, as these are (apparently) already in the hands of TRU. More likely many will trickle out, and a bunch end up at Tuesday Morning or Ollie's.

    Call me crazy, but if I got one, I just might end up calling it Scourge instead of Thundercracker.

    Shame the US won’t see enough of him (unless eBay, Amazon, Walmart, Target or some other retailer gets him) now that TRU is closing Monday (according to a worker at Gamestop)

    No Thundercrackers at Warwick RI, North Attleboro MA, or Swansea MA stores yet.

    They were in local warehouses listed for delivery this week, but then the R-us number was deleted and they aren't expecting them anymore.
    Oh well. While I'd like to get one, I can live without rather than pay douchebag scalpers the $50-150 range they're asking.
