    Got the Grotusque shipping notice yesterday and it arrived today! The pretty quick turnaround almost makes up for the long wait for this guy to go in stock.

    While I'm sure stuff's going on with Grotusque, I noticed they took down the listing for MPM-4.

    Edit: Okay, the listing's still there, but it's still out of stock and I can't see if stores have it.

    Just got my Grotusque today and if you were on the fence about him, get off of it and order this guy. He's the cat's pajamas!

    Also, were there any upcoming TRU exclusives coming up or announced by Hasbro? I'm having trouble keeping track.

    Just ordered another grotesque to keep in package and threw in a cosmos for free shipping. Grotesque really has a fun transformationZ really love how the beast head forms

    I agree for Starscream since I've been seeing him everywhere, but Grimlock is a little harder to find these days. Plus he sold out on TRU.com so maybe $30 isn't a bad price if you can't find him.

    Yeah that's important to remember. Always price match when you can. I got Devastator for $88 that way. Always have the link pulled up on your phone before you get into the store as the reception in the store may suck.

    Yeah, I’ve gotten some pretty cheap Marvel Legends at TRU using price matching. Sadly, I never seem to find any Transformers there to use it with.

    I believe Masterpiece Movie Barricade and Ironhide are next, but dunno if they're exclusives or not.

    Depends on what country to live in. In North America, the past MPMs have been TRU exclusives.

    Not sure if this has been asked before, but are Arcee and Grotesque sold at Toys R Us in-store or just online only?

    They have been spotted in stores (or at least, Arcee has) but I don't know if that's with any consistency or just a few cases here and there.

    That’s cool :)  usually I only collect transformers that I am familiar with to at least some degree, but man I have to say that Grotesque looks really cool! I’m probably going to end up buying him when I have the cash to do so! I might pass on Arcee and maybe just end up buying the Thrilling 30 on eBay (if it’s not too expensive).
