No worries man. I actually picked up Megatron for the hell of it (and because I have a pretty big Neo G2 collection). I'm actually VERY pleased with him and he looks great in my display. Much better than United Tank Megatron. So yea, it wasn't a total waste. Megatron made the trip worth it. I sort of want to take a pic or two of him with my other Neo G2 figures, but I'm still waiting for my FoC Fruiticus (the big bad dudicus) to arrive.

Yeah, Robby Musso texted me a little while ago and told me.. But for $119... If they had any of the boxes uptop I could at least use the 99.99 tag on the side to price match..

Too rich for my blood with Christmas coming... I have 3 daughters and a wife to buy presents for..

Wow, I wonder when they increased MP Prime's price. I'm pretty sure I got mine for 99.99 plus tax. I will definitely say that he's worth the price of admission, though; even if that price is 120 bucks. Still, I understand where you're coming from, CB. I've been eying the Knight Morpher Starscream figure (the one based on his Hearts of Steel character) for a while now. But wifey and I have been saving so we can go on a late honeymoon to Las Vegas. Hell, I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to pay for that Ehobby G1 Shattered glass set I preordered at BBTS. :-(

I hope I'm doing this right and this is the correct place to add this. I just submitted a toy sighting, but it was for the old Toys R Us. That store has closed and moved across town in Baton Rouge.

Anyway I just picked up a MP Optimus at the new Toys R Us on North Mall Dr. off of Seigen Lane. I also added that store to the list, but it wasn't available to select yet.

There was an unopened case on the bottom shelf. I purchased one and put the case back behind a ton of MP Thundercrackers. Hope someone here finds it. And yes, it was hard to not purchase both of them.

Carytheone, this is the right place to post your findings. Welcome aboard!

This site also has the global sightings function, with selectable product and stores but I usually come here to see what's actually out and about. Good find with MP-10, I'm still waiting on my preorder from TRU's online site.

Passed by TRU today and they have the new Combaticon wave for the FoC figures. All five were there. I left them since I have the SDCC one and my G2 Fruiticus is currently on its way from BBTS. To be honest, though, the retail version looks a lot better in person than pictures led me to believe.

Also, there were a bunch of MP Primes, MP Thundercrackers, and a TON of GDO Legends figures.

Passed by TRU on Vets last night on my way back home, had a lot of GDO in stock too. I just waited a bit to post that because I was trying to give someone a head's up. Not sure what the stock looks like now, but pretty much everything except the GDO Deluxe figures so I think you can take a quick jog to see what's left. I asked a store clerk about the deluxes and she tried to look it up to no avail. However, my own experiment was in using TRU's website to look up "wheelie" = not found. Look up "transformers" and wheelie shows up on the system. I managed to nab a Springer online last night. Any of y'all find a Wheelie, let me know cuz that's the last GDO I need.

*edit* and just got my confirmation that TRU shipped MP-10! yay, don't have to pay an extra $20 to grab it. :KREMZEEK:

I saw the combaticons @ the Harahan super Wal mart this morn... I was going to pick up Brawl but with Christmas coming I need to save for my family's presents.
The colors did not really do it for me either..

TRU on Siegen Ln had 2 Thundertrons and 3 Ultra Magnus (Magni?) available, but the price is now $29.99 and you can take advantage of BOGO 40% off. So, about $24/ea if you're buying both.

Yeah the vets store has a tone of both figures.. The BOGO helps but the almost $10 price difference from TRU to anywhere else is ridiculous..

Found the following at TRU on Vets this morning:
FOC Starscream and Ultramagnus: none left
All of Beast Hunters wave 1: 1 of each left

I skipped all of the Beast Hunters figures. They look really cheap; especially Bumblebee and Lazerback.
