I ran up to the TRU on 3rd St & Bell Rd. They have quite an interesting collection of Transformers! Some surprising back stock. I actually found a Generations Blurr! There's also a Generations Dirge, and two Generations Thunderwings. They were fully stocked on TFP:RID (minus Soundwave), including Megatron and Optimus. Anyway, here's pictures:

Then I ran across the street to the plaza with the Ross, Big Lots, and Walgreens. Ross had two RTS G2 Optimus Primes.

Image

Big Lots had a couple each of these three Minicons, as well as an entire box of Wreckloose, Backstop, and Undermine.

Image

They also had these hilarious knockoffs! The back of the card has pictures of all of the knockoffs, including a couple of insect ones, which Big Lots didn't have. If anyone sees these anywhere, please let me know!

Good hunting, stalkers!

Hey guys just got home with my Optimus prime with trailer from the movie trilogy line. Optimus is pretty much the walmart deluxe exclusive. I don't feel he's worth $29.99, but I just had to have this movie trailer. The Walmart Optimus will work with this trailer but you'll have to do a little mod. G1 Optimus would work also but again you'll have to do a little mod. I was able to connect my TF:Prime Optimus with no problem, the holes are perfect. But his hitche area is about a1/4 inch too tall so the trailer isn't level. A bad shame because TF Prime Optimus and this movie trailer scale well together.

Oh I was able to get this movie trilogy Optimus at the Target on 99th ave and lower buckeye. I was lucky, they actually went to the back and got this out even though it doesn't come out till next week.

I saw the Movie Trilogy Prime at the TRU on Indian Bend & 101N today. I didn't realize how small it actually was until I saw it first hand. $35 for that tiny thing and an empty trailer? :roll:

Anyway, here are pictures of their loot: IMGur gallery

Wow. I don't get paid again until the 7th but I'm hoping they'll still have those Rage over Cybertron sets available.

They seem to move product pretty slowly, so you stand a good chance!

No Soundwaves (anymore heh heh)
3X Prime Voyager
1X Megatron Voyager (only $20 each, a $7 discount compared to TRU)

There's a TRU in Mesa? What are the cross streets?

Target at 44th St. & Thomas restocked on wave 2 PRID, including Bot Shots, but excluding Cyberverse. No Soundwave, either.

Target at 19th Ave. & Bethany Home is the same, but with a Cyberverse Cliffjumper and some Bumblebees.

No Ratchet or Arcee at either one. :\

Right off the 60 and Power Rd (next to the mall).

One of my best friends in High School works there and gives me the 411 on new shipments/restocks. He can hold stuff for me too but only for 24 hours.

One of my best friends works at TRU in Superstition Springs so if he sees one, I'm the first to know.

Looks like my buddy got 4 in today at the TRU located at:
1516 South Power Road Mesa, AZ 85206

If you hurry, you can snag one up. Apparently there is a scalper that comes by every morning when the store opens to snag them.

You weren't kidding when you suggested that I hurry!

Did you get yours?

I think you were right about that scalper, i think he got 3, and I believe you picked up the fourth one. At least I hope you did!

I was unable to get one from the mesa store and they are now out of stock.

I tried the chandler store too, but, the last one left was placed on hold by an employee there, possibly the assistant manager.

As of today, chandler and mesa are out of stock, and according to their machines, so are all the other stores in the valley. It seems the only stores with this item in stock are the Yuma store and the Tucson store as of the time of this posting.

Lame!

I hope there is another shipment coming sometime, but as things go with masterpiece items, I think this was the only shipment we were going to see.

They ordered 330, for just the Tucson/Yuma District, thats three times what Roddy Had.

I wouldn't fret, I think TC will be around for awhile.
It's Prime I'd be worried about.

Toys R Us Mesa is out of stock as of 2:20 pm 9/7/12. I was able to pick up one Masterpiece Thundercracker!

Image

Someone bought 2 from the mesa store before I was able to get there. I'm not sure when they'll get more in. All I hear from the staff there is how popular this item is, and that they get lots of calls about it.

Good luck everyone!
