    yes i know their are threads about this and no i do not want to bother with any of the crap on there with a bunch of people going back and fourth and mixing from all locations. i started this tread to start from scratch and because i am a employee who's able to get my hands on cases of this item. this tread if for my use and my use only as far as going to helping you guys get the item.

    RULES:
    i will not be using my own money to get the cases, if you want the item you must paypal me the money first hand then that same day or day after i will go and get the items, i am mainly planning on doing a bulk order and getting it all done in one shot with shipping them out and everything. i wont be using my own money for the simple fact that i am not going to stay with items from people who don't come through on their end of the bargain. if you really want the item then this wont be an issue, also if you're skeptical then you are free to check my ebay history and that speaks for its self with over 5 years open and 100% seller and buyer history. Ebay account

    i am doing this tread just to see how many cases would i need to request

    this is how its going to work:
    - i will not be answering any PM's because that's just going to get out of hand.
    - only allowing one per user, so sorry you wont be getting multiple unless i get my hands on more cases, lets help others before we get greedy
    - this is a first come first serve deal, the people at the top of the list will be the first people who will be taken care of
    - once you put in a request i will tally up how many i will need then i will go to my managers and put in my order for cases, once i get the okay for my order i will PM you with my email address so you can paypal me the money.
    - if you take longer than 24 hours to respond then i will move on to the next person, you lose your spot and then i will get back to you on the second round
    - once request is made i will send all my info to you which will include, my full name, my store number, my store id, my employee number, a photo of my work id (if requested) my stores phone number and extension and anything else request just to assure people its not a scam.

    1. item price is $138.99 before taxes
    2. NYC sales tax is 8.875%
    3. shipping hasn't bee determined yet (shipping might even be free depending on cost of shipping with tracking)
    4. i will not be applying my discount for this item, lets call it a "handling fee" (its only a few bucks anyways)

    for the ones who don't believe the price heres a screen shot of our stores system with information of the MASTERPIECE OPTIMUS PRIME
    [​IMG]

    info i will need in request:
    State, city:
    Zip code:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    • i will be shipping all orders at the same time
    • i will most likely use UPS
    • i will be shipping with tracking

    i may have left out some stuff but if i have i will refine my post and edit it accordingly. none the less i hope i am able to help out as many people as i can being that in my region we are getting over 1000 pieces so i will do my best to make sure everyone who request one gets one.

    don't forget to use the poll at the top so i can make the best move, i think UPS would be the best bet since my store already has a UPS store and i could get the guy to hook me up.

    It's pretty good of you to offer this. Had I not been impatient and bought one off of eBay (saw the new retail price and worried it would drive aftermarket prices even higher) I would take you up on this offer.

    So let me get this straight.....you're not passing on your 10% employee discount. So on each of these you're going to make almost $15. Real nice.

    *shrugs* do whatever you like. Just stop running around the forums acting like you're doing it out of the goodness of your heart for you fellow fan. Scalping is scalping, if you make $15 or $50.

    i was willing to apply my discount but with ungrateful people like you i'd rather not. you should consider the fact that in order to do things in life you have to take action. so once i get the cases what do you think is going to happen after i get the cases? they are magically going to ship themselves and transport themselves? hell i was even thinking of doing free shipping depending on what the cost for shipping would be

    like i said i have mine already, if people really want one i will be more then glad to help

    Really? You're going to blame me for you not using your discount, when you clearly said in your very first post that you aren't going to use it?

    But lets do some math here. Lets say only four people take you up on your offer. You've now made just shy of $60 for what will end up being about 2 hours(likely less) worth of effort for you. Thats a nice $30/hr payrate for you. And, of course, it'll only be compounded if more people end up buying.

    What won't I understand? Feel free to check my feedback. Most of my feedback is actually just me picking up figures and selling them to people at cost in other states. I don't make a dime, nor have I ever asked anyone to pay for my gas for the trouble.

    Don't act like you're doing some great, kind thing when you're just trying to scam cash off people.

    because i mean TRU times square price is 138.99 so lets take out the factor that i work there and now i am just a NY resident who can go pick up said item at TRU. . . now what? so your argument is pretty damn pointless once you look at it

    Why can't people just appreciate the help when it's there? You sir are doing people a favor by offering this. If I didn't already have mine pre-ordered, I would have bought one from you. I just hope that TRU actually sends me my MP-10 instead of canceling my pre-order.

    Except it isn't. You're using your connections at TRU to make this possible. This isn't something any joe can go out and do. Fair enough.

    However, you're asking people to pay $140+shipping, which is, bare minimum, $20 more than people are paying at ANY other TRU. It's also very close to what people are already paying on eBay.

    On TOP of that you're going to take $15 off the top of any you sell. So, whats in this for ANYONE but you, again?

    Nevermind that you're someone who's been posting here for a whopping month with NO user feedback and you're asking people to just throw $150 at you on faith.

    thank you at least i know i'm not the one who's bugging out here and hell like i said i am even willing to offer free shipping depending on how many request i get and how much shipping with tracking is going to cost.

    i have no idea why the hell TRU is cancelling pre-orders i would be pissed the hell off if i pre-ordered and got cancelled. i think TRU didn't expect the demand for these figured and put their foot in there mouth and now they are regretting it. from what i've heard from our office is that we have over 500 pre-orders to fill just in my store alone maybe even in the 1,000 by now, which makes me wonder what is the production run number on this item

    couldn't agree more

    you seem to miss the fact the NY retail cost is $140. its still cheaper in the long run then eBay prices. Personally I have no problem with him using his discount and saving the cash, because again, if you didn't know he was a TRU employee it wouldn't even matter.
    Price may not be much cheaper then eBay but $10 is $10 in the long run, especially when shipping costs on eBay are $20+
