I hear people buying them at their local TRU but mine look at me like I'm crazy. Am I?

Seems like nobody in the TRU organization is even aware that they're selling these. I've heard stories of cashiers being unable to scan them at the register.

I've seen the Legends and Scouts at my local TRU, but no sign of any of the Deluxes or Voyagers.

They have came and gone a couple of times at this location. As said before, they aren't coming up when they get scanned at check out, so that might have something to do with no one knowing anything.

yes he is but he seems to be the most popular so his shelflife is minimal.
just came from TRU; they had 5 Megs and 1 Powerdive, no Hot Spot.
the only time i have seen him was a couple behind the customer service desk being held for other customers.

Damn! I purchased TFC Gears of War set for mainly the ladder. You have a link to the iGear one? I could always use the Gears of War ladder for the Inferno I plan to own in the near future.

Cool, I picked up this set too. A little pricey but I think it's worth the money with the other goodies that's included. Paid $40 shipped. Think it was TFC-004 Gear of War.

My troubles are over, picked up all three on eBay. After shipping I paid a total of $20 more than had I picked them up at TRU myself but at least I don't have to burn gas running around trying to find them.

I just came from TRU, and they had multiples of all the GDO figures. Hotspot actually looked decent in-hand, but Megatron and Powerdive are still fugly.

Ditto. But I did get my hands on a Megs when I went out of town.
