We were in Gwinette today so we went to the Mall of Ga TRU. Found a few of the Asian scouts. I picked up one Brawl and also one Laserbeak. Left were two Sandstorms and a Dead End. My brother picked up a MP Optimus Prime today from a TRU in Atlanta. I can't remember which one. But the clerk looked up other TRUs in Ga and said that Tucker has two in stock. He was asking because he was going to get one for me. He didnt feel like making the trip to Tucker. Eh, I'll get him sometime.

OH! BTW...TRU mall of Ga had a sh!t ton of MP Thundercrackers. Two on shelf and at least 5 boxes in topstock! I cant remember how many are per box...2 or 3.

The TRU on Cobb Parkway across from Cumberland Mall has 2 MP Thundercrackers. No sign of MP Optimus, Kup or Rumble. In fact, I haven't seen any of that TFP wave.

So I checked the TRU on Cobby Pkwy again today. Now they have 5 MP Thundercrackers, but still no MP Optimus. They also had the FE Entertainment Pack with Deluxe OP, Megatron and the kids.

I actually just checked there again. Where did you see the MP Optimus? I didn't see any spot for him and not even a price tag marker (at least around all the other TF's, including MP Thundercracker). I just want to make sure I'm looking in the right places when I go to TRU. Or did you ask somebody and they pulled him from the back? Any help would be great!

Checked the usual spots today and nothing new. TRU @ Mall of GA had 5 unopened cases of MP ThunderCracker, but none on the shelf. They also had several cases of DOTM product unopened. Hopefully we start to see product levels increase here in the next few weeks as we are a month out from Black Friday.

Oh, I forgot to mention that on Saturday. Whoops! Yeah, cases and cases of MP Thundercracker on top of the shelf. Should be easy enough to ask an employee to open one. Also, sadly, cases and cases of various DOTM crap. Mechtech Deluxe and lots of non-transforming stuff. No MP Prime.

FYI guys, if you are looking for MP Optimus Prime, his TRU UPC # is 653569776314. All you have to do is call a TRU and ask them if they have it in stock and kindly ask if any TRUS in Ga have them. They can look up inventory at other stores as well. Wednesdays seem to be when shipments come in for the TRUs in my area.

Also, today, I came across 4 deluxe vehicons. Still found the 2 at Target in Peachtree City, 1 at the Wal-mart in PTC and one at K-mart in PTC also (and it was a whopping 18 dollars! Get bent k-mart!).

I found 2 Voyager Dreadwings at the TRU in Buckhead off of Lenox Road. It's the first time I'm found him.

I'm happy to see that he's popping up (a little) more in GA. How much did you pay for him? Also, was he just on the TF shelf kinda like how MP Thundercracker has been? I only ask because I haven't even seen where he would be, i.e., no tag for him. I want to make sure I'm looking in the right place. This gets my hopes up!

It was 119.99. I protested some at the register but the clerk had no idea what to do and I didn't feel like messing with customer service. He was on the bottom shelf. There was a price tag there for it. Good luck-hopefully they'll start showing it in bigger numbers soon.

Actually good sir, I was just there today and picked up the last one. There was a FE Entertainment pack of Megs and OP on the shelf. When I moved it to look behind, there he was sitting in all his glory. I hit 7 stores today and TRU was the last one. It was a bum day, didnt see much of anything. Then this made my day.

They must have had one or more in the back because I did a thorough check of the shelves. I wonder if some stores are trying to limit the number on the floor to try and stop scalpers.

Glad to hear you snagged one!

BIG NEWS!

Just recieved a text from my brother with a pic of 5 boxes (2 per box so 10 in stock) of MP Primes from the Tucker TRU. He said that each box even had a TRU made label with the 119.99 price on them. He said that they had none on the shelf so when you get there, ask them to pull them down.

I went to the Fayetteville TRU and found that they had 6 MP primes out on the shelf. They also had FE Starscream, Asian Generation Cliffjumper, and some asian scouts.

I also went to Aldi (in case you didnt know, they have all Deluxe Transformers for 9.99) and they had Ratchet, Vehicon, WheelJack, Fruity WheelJack (Deadend),and Knockout.

All transformers mentioned in this post were there tonight and left. The only one I took home was FE Arcee ;).

Went to Buford TRU today, found a boatload of MP Thundercrackers hogging all the shelf space, 3 pegs of DOTM crap, the usual lack of anything good in Prime deluxe, a lone FE Terrorcon Cliffy, 2 Asia Voyager Megatrons, and an Asian Voyager Powerdive.

Went to Duluth TRU out by Gwinnett Place and they didn't have a single TF on their shelves more recent than August. No MPs, no FE, no Asian Generations. Don't waste your gas going out here.

Went to Duluth Aldi, following up on the news report of finding Vehicons there, just a few Dead Ends and Knock Out.

Went to Lawrenceville Aldi. JACKPOT.

4 boxes of Prime figures, most of them Vehicons. I think I snagged the only Airachnid though. So if you're Vehicon hunting, come to Aldi on Duluth Highway. It's beside the Mr. Clean Carwash and it's on the stretch between Riverside Parkway and Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road.

Thank you so much for the information! I've been having lots of frustration and trouble with my TRU preorder, so I decided to give the Tucker store a shot. Just like you reported, there were 5 unopened boxes of MP Optimus but none on the shelf.

The sales rep got a fresh box down and I took my MP OP to customer service to see if they would match the online preorder price. The CS rep said that she could as long as I had a physical printout for her to verify the price. I have been carrying around a printout of my preorder email for the last week or so and thus she matched the price!

So, I was actually able to get him for cheaper because tax is a little less than online for a final price of $106.99! I only bought one so there should be one somewhere on the shelves and 4 cases directly above the TF section at the Tucker TRU.

I had my first nerdgasm for the first time in a long, long while today. =P~ Aldi was loaded with Hot Shots, Knock Outs, Ratchets, and yes Airachid and TONS OF VEHICONS. If you guys need any, hit them up while they are still $9.99. I feel like its 2007 again, well price wise anyway. If you have any issues finding any, hit me up. The store I went to just had grand opening and is packed out with product.
