Do Hasbro exclusives like the MP-sounwave sell through TRU website as well?

Or are these exclusvies sold in-store only?

I live in Europe and do not want to pay a far higher price through another dealer, then what they go for in-store.

If yes, what's the ordering experience with Hasbro exclusvies, how fast do you need to be ordering online at TRU? Will TRu announce what they sell and when?

Nope, because they're assholes!

Seriously, I've never been able to order TRU exclusives on their site.

Motto: "The only good is knowledge, and the only evil is ignorance."
As a rule of thumb, exclusive to a single chain means just that: you can only get that item in that chain, in-store or online on their site.

The British are bit better off than mainland Europe, as typical US exclusives are sold there in equivalent (meaning same umbrella company) stores, like ASDA for Target or Toys 'R Us UK for, well, Toys 'R Us US. Prices are decent over there too. so chances are MP Soundwave will be released over there, but don't quote me on that. Try hitting up a few of our sneaky Brits on the boards. :)

May I ask where in Europe you're from?

Another Dutchie! Little by little, we're taking over the Net :twisted:

*ahem* :oops: I usually travel to the US thanks to my wife, but I've been to Germany twice for C.O.N.S., plus I have quite a few British friends. :)

I read your story about your wife being homesick for the US and her family. Moving over to the US sounds like an excellent decision to make, Veel plezier!

BTW. I noticed in my previous post I make this mistake "a-lot"
