    I've learned to not trust the TRU stores or their systems. When the MP Rodimus was in stores, I called both TRU in Richmond. Both stores told me the system showed 4 in stock, but nobody could find the actual toys.

    I was there yesterday around 2/3 PM and they did not have any in the store. They didn't have any spot on the shelf for it, so if they had it, I have no clue where, and the employees had no clue either..

    Sorry about that guys, was only passing along the info in hopes to help some of you out. I thought it was credible since I heard the same story from two sources. I guess the hunt continues.

    If anyone is looking for the kreon micro-changers the TRU in Fair Lakes has at least 3 complete sets in a single box as of about 6:30 tonight. No TC and no shelf sticker either. The TRU in Manassas has no kreon micro-changers but does have a shelf tag for TC but no stock.

    Nothing at Kingstowne again.

    Walmart has a huge gaping hole on the pegs where the deluxes should be.

    MP Thundercracker is available online at toysrus.com for 55.99 and free shipping if anyone is interested and wants to save the time, gas and frustration. I just snagged one a couple of minutes ago for Backscatter.

    Thanks Freya! I ordered one!

    Bet the dopes (who are capable of ordering it from TRU) on ebay paying $140 are going to regret paying almost 3x the amount...

    I called military highway TRU and I was told I was 1 of 6 dudes that has been calling about MP Thundercracker. The associate on the line told me that she tried looking for stock in neighboringg states like North Carolina and they were out, said no store nearby had any either. She suggested orddering online from Hasbro.

    Personally I don't think Tcracker and optimus will be hard to find in a few months. I'm trying to be optimistic.

    Grassfield Walmart has a few RC bumblebee/knockout, 2 cyberverse ultra magnus, the bulkhead repaint, 3 nightwatch primes, 2 starscreams. 4 foc shockwaves.

    For avengers studio: 1 thor, rest are caps and iron mans.
    For Amazing Spiderman 6": 1-2 each Miles Morales and movie Spiderman, 1 Lizard. These should be easier to find than the Avengers studio ones since each is 2 or more per case.

    Battlefield Walmart: foc shockwave(saw 1; maybe more, didn't really look).
    Avengers Studio: iron man and cap.
    Amazing Spiderman 6": none.

    ^^ I went by Manassas TRU today, and they also said they had none in stock with none on order (yet). I'd imagine they're just slowly shifting across the country, and we'll see them eventually.

    Nothing else of interest in any of the stores in Manassas: both Targets, the mall WM (no spideys yet), Ross, TJX, Marshalls...

    Did see a few shockwaves out there, (TRU specifically) so if anyone's missing him still...
