    No problem. I'm always looking To hookup My fellow collectors for no Extra gain.
    Yup they did the same thing for me. As long as it is noted , then I feel confident should I have to speak to a manager and pull some rank!

    Hmm, more details on this please.. Also I was in Tokyo about 2 years ago, and I seen some MP Grimlocks for sale.. is this TRU version the same thing as that or whats different?




    Link is pointing to nothing? I even tried a search on TRU website and got nada.. I even searched Masterpiece Transformers and it came back with nothing? TRU website sucks.. or I do?


    AWESOME,, never thought of that.. my lil man'z is still rocking diapers... but SOON he won't be!! Will keep some unOPENED!!

    It really helps to get them on the potty with a star system, like 10 potty starts= 1 toy. It worked great at first bit now my little swine got all his transformers and is going back in his pull ups out of sheer laziness.

    BTW that link was working this morning but it appears that the figure and the item#have been removed from the website. I checked my confirmation email and the this was the Item #:17858397 for grimlock. This was his exact title in their system: Transformers Masterpiece Grimlock Figure One Color.
    They may have removed the figure because they sold out. Sorry brother.

    None at Madison TRU last night, but he's on TRU.com right now.

    Power Rangers Legacy Dragonzord - Bandai - Toys "R" Us

    I ordered one a bit a go and got it in the mail yesterday, haven't had a chance to open it yet.

    La Crosse TRU now has 5 MP Grimlock as of noon today. $80 here and happy to see they are enforcing a "One per customer rule".

    God I wish they would do that everywhere! I could see buying another for a friend or fellow collector, but stop the stuffed shopping cart peeps.

    I say we nonscalpers call all our TRUs and pitch a big fit about one masterpiece per customer. Rise up brothers! This is our time. They can scalp our items, but they can't take away our freedom!

    PS whoever was looking for that power ranger fancy green box thing valued at $69, I seen 3 at the brown deer TRU.

    Well, in general the major US retailers for imports/third party figures post up preorders for these things months (sometimes a year) in advance. Like you can go to TFSource or BBTS right now and pick up MP Sideswipe, Red Alert, Tiger Track, Prowl, Bluestreak, Smokescreen, Starscream, Soundwave, Soundblaster and/or preorder MP Wheeljack, Bumblebee, and Ultra Magnus. Granted, you have to pay for the import price (plus the overhead at these stores) so it's going to be pretty pricey compared to whatever Toys R Us would sell them for.

    But like I said, it's kind of a crapshoot if Hasbro/Takara decide to bring a figure over (like Sideswipe hasn't been offered here). So if you really want a figure and don't want to wait, you could always buy the Japanese version. It really paid off to wait for Soundwave because it would've cost you close to $300 to get him and his cassettes but when TRU offered him, he was like $130. So it's really up to you.

    Do you remember what kind of packaging the MP Grimlock in Japan was in? Was it a clean black box with pictures of the toy on the front or did it look like a giant comic book cover? They had two versions over there but they never offered the comic book version in the states. I would say this reissue would be pretty close to the original release but we're getting a little extra bit with the golden crown. Some of the minor paint/sticker detailing might be a little different but not as significant as other releases (like the new MP Optimus, Hot Rod, etc)

    Anyone here need a Jetwing Optimus Prime? (TRU version, MiB) I'll be willing to trade it for a new MP Grimlock :) 

    I'd prefer someone who lives in the Milwaukee area so it would be a little easier to meet up

    I'm also just waiting for the inevitable sales at TRU and Target in a few weeks. You know they're going to have some kind of deals when the movie hits. If I'm going to buy crap, I at least want it to be on sale.

    Madison TRU is sorta suckin. No MP Grimlock which isn't surprising but they didn't have any Evolution twopacks or the new Kreo sets either.
