    probably by trying every search they can think of on the site. the site is so bad that the employees can't find anything.

    No, TRU is a business. They exist to make money, not serve entitled collectors.

    Dang, wish TRU had something else I wanted right now. But the only thing I'm interested in is Soundwave and I can't justify purchasing him alone. Maybe they'll get the new FoC Deluxes up in the near future.

    Their search feature is stupid, but I think I found how people might be finding these listings (tried this with Firefox and Chrome), using Soundwave as an example:

    - Go to the tru.com homepage and locate the box that has "Search by keyword (etc)..." in it.
    - Begin typing in what you're looking for, one letter at a time. As you type, a drop-down menu will appear with suggestions. For instance, typing "S" produces the suggestions "skylanders, strollers", etc.
    - Keep typing one letter at a time. By the time you get to "Soundw", the only two items in the suggestions drop-down will be FoC Generations Voyager Soundwave...and Kre-O Sentinel Prime, for some reason.
    - Rather than finishing typing your entry into the box, click on the drop-down suggestion for FoC Voyager Generations Soundwave. Takes you right to the listing.
    - Now, try quickly typing "Soundwave" into the search box and hitting Enter or the "Go!" button. The only listings that will come up are two listing for TF Prime Deluxe Soundwave.

    The above method gives the same type of results for Soundblaster, the Frenzy/Ratbat two-pack (if 'frenzy' is the search term; doesn't work for 'ratbat') and Ravage/Rumble (if 'ravage' is the search term; doesn't work for 'rumble').

    I don't think that word means what you think it means. But don't worry, you're hardly alone in getting it wrong.

    Soundblaster is back in stock; I just ordered it and the Ravage/Rumble two-pack.

    Between the BOGO40% off and the fact that Voyagers on the website are cheaper than at my TRU, it came out to almost exactly the same price as it would've if I found them at retail... but I didn't have to bother with hunting.

    Crap in a hat he's gone again. Screw it sale or no sale I'm just going to wait. Should have learned with the GDO voyagers. Oy.

    TRu is killing my wallet. These were not supposed to be here till next year!! Had to order soundblaster and the disk packs. TRU's shipping rates are so skewed. SoundBlaster + Soundwave was 6 something. SoundBlaster + 2 data disk packs is 11 something.

    Well, you could always just tell it to email you when it's back in stock and then you'll promptly be able to-BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAAA... haa... ha. Sorry. Couldn't keep a straight face. Just have to keep checkin' and hope you get lucky. Seems like TRU.com does restocks early in the morning (6-7 or so?).

    Soundblaster + 1 Datadisk pack was $6 something. Weird.

    TRU isn't messed around with shipping these things. I ordered my Soundblaster/Soundwave Saturday night and it hit the mailbox Saturday night. Should be here tomorrow.

    On the front page it says today is free shipping day and its free standard shipping on all standard shipping orders to street addresses in the continental United States.

    I put in my street address and it still charges me shipping and I went all the way to the review page. I guess its shame on me since I thought TRU.com might actually work this time.

    I knew they had that special, but on the front page they advertise today is free shipping Monday and it doesn't mention the $59 minimum. But I think I found out that its just on a select group of items.

    TRU Dec 17 Free Shipping Day
