Thats just to damn expensive, i dont care how cool the figure is i can think of much better things to do with a hundred bucks, besides im sure itll be on sale or on clearance soon enough.

One guy seemed to know what is was and said not yet. Anyone else find TRS employees to be among the worst for customer service? I thought toy people would be happier people....


The days of store employes knowing about their products is long over, they would rather hire a moron who works for minimum wage and can be fired on the spot than someone who knows about the products but will only work for $10 an hour and job security. Sometime you will encounter a person who will research the stuff after getting the job but thats rare. Besides with comouters now all they have to do is type in a keyword and look it up, not always helpful but thats how they think now. Just another reason why i miss K B Toys, the people who worked there knew everything there was.

Well dang! Just as my nerves started settling from hunting Thundercracker, Prime has to go and appear, looks like it's time to get back on the hunt! (my poor wallet!) :D

I will check my local TRU today but I am not hopeful.
Why is it no one cares at TRU.
They should be glad they have a job and give at least 60% effort.
We need to get some transformer fans in the job.

I wonder if everyone who pre-ordered is going to have to wait until Mid October, like the website claimed. Bah!

To those who didn't get one in, I wish you luck finding him!

TRU.com doesn't ship on the dates, just when the item is received..
It was "excepted in or around Oct. 15th"..


that means, it could be any time,

First person to post the shipping email wins a Kremzeek.

I don't know but I'd be fine with that. Much better than not having it since Masterpiece figures NEVER appear on Australian shelves.

Then ill have to keep an eye out for it. never got an MP10 or a trailer for my MP01. After looking at a video comparison of the 01 and 10 molds seems ill like MP10 better than my 01.

This again? Seriously? Okay then, you wait for clearance. Let us know how that works out for you. By the way, you are nuts. $250+ for the Takara, or $100 for the FIRST domestic MP Optimus Prime with a trailer and ALL accessories? This is a no-brainer and MOST of us are VERY pleased.

Hopefully, HasBLO won't choose to listen to things like your post and ruin it for everyone else.

Both MP-02 Ultra Magnus and MP-04 Convoy Perfect Edition were sold at retail (Target) in Australia. And TRU AU has confirmed they'll be stocking MP Optimus Prime.

So here's my story. I frequent my local TRU here in San Diego and have a pretty cool relationship with the staff. They are always holding items for me and will usually call me as soon as they unload a truck at around 7:30am, that may have an item that I have been inquiring about. With that said, about 3 weeks ago I get a call about MP-Thundercracker. Score! Yesterday at 7:30am I got a call to let me know MP-Prime was on hold for me to pick up. Score! Life is good. "Til all are one!" or at least til all have a hook up like mine at a TRU. :BOT:

Agreed. Even when my TRU had one lonely MP Grimlock sitting on the shelf got WEEKS that sucker didn't go on sale. That thing had to have been there for a month and a half before someone finally took pity on him and bought it.

Back when I wasn't interest in MP's... and didn't have much money because I was fresh out of college...

I'll be more than happy if Transformers cost US retail prices here. :grin: $99.90 for MP Prime is a steal compared to the $226.90 Here. :-(

Any idea of the SKU? That's how I found MP Thundercracker. Also any idea if Prime will still be around by Christmas? My sister was going to get this for me as a present and I'd hate for her to have to get it now.

FYI about his smoke stacks, if I remember correctly they do telescope in and out as part of the transformation.

Not 100% sure whether I have it, but after I per-ordered mine online, in the email, the item number is 15546036.
