Can't prove it, of course, but it seems rather possible. I wouldn't be surprised. For a store like TRU, this is pretty ridiculous.

I've worked for TRU, and I can say that even the employees make jokes about not getting refreshed stock of items on sale, until the sale was over.

If its coincidental, then there is a least one coincidence a week.

hello all,

is anyone getting paint chips on their TRU MP Prime? i've transfromered mine twice and the diacast painted mid section (in red) keeps chipping. it is not visible in either modes but its the part that locks it in robot mode and vehical mode. its not a big deal but just wondering. I cant be the only one having this issue.

Of course I can't prove it, but look at how many brick & mortar stores were getting them (esp. east & south) while the Sept. pre-orders were neglected.

Finally got mine yesterday! So excited, but I didn't open it :( Gonna see if my folks want to wrap it up for me for x-mas. Save them money and basically make it a present to myself, but from them.

Wow. I'm speechless. Just opened the shipping box & am seeing it for the first time in person. I'm stunned. Nice packaging too. Holy s&*^$&. Wow. Now I see why people are saying at $120 it's still a deal. Well worth the wait and the $99 I paid too. I was lucky. Time to hold it over my head like "Tron" :D :grin: :lol: :KREMZEEK:

It's called being financially aware.

Really pisses me off how much they jacked up the price. Was impossible to get while it was $99. None of the local stores had them nor did the site. I talked to one store and they said they've been getting about one case every two weeks. Only two come in a case. Really don't understand how they always ship in massive amounts of crappy movie exclusives that no one wants and only two of MP Prime. Or Grimlock. That one was a debacle, too. Anyway finally ordered mine on the weekend, but probably only because fewer people are buying at the higher price, so the handful they get here and there aren't moving as fast.

Your not the only one.

Me too but as has been mentioned, can't see it in robot or truck modes anyway so why kick up a fuss about it?

I can't wait to see and have that masterpiece Optimus Prime. I'm an avid fan of transformers Toys, though my favorite character is bumblebee, still I want to collect other characters.

It seems like all is right with the world or at least most no? This is the 2nd or 3rd day that I see OP still available for purchase. So either the majority of fans have their order's in and are simply counting the days or due to the recent holiday sales and shopping for deals people's wallets are currently in reset mode.

I was fortunate in my endless hunt that I spotted 4 on the shelf and only saw 2 boxes up above. I snagged 3 of them, 1 for a friend and 1 to keep sealed. I guess it won't be long before they sell out again on TRU.com. It really is a hell of a sight when holding it in your grips indeed! :VEHI:
