Lucky find?

Postby lextizzle » Thu Oct 04, 2012 9:39 pm

So I was at my local TRU and stumbled upon these guys.... Generations Wheeljack, Cliffjumper, and Motorbreath.

Wasn't this Cliffjumper an Asia Exclusive? What's it doing in a TRU in WA state?

The formally asia exclusive Generations GDO figures are being sold at TRU in the U.S. It includes deluxes, voyagers, scouts and legends. However there is something odd about your cliffjumper because there should be chinese on the package just like there is on Motorbreath's package. Also cliffjumper should be packaged in alt mode. The glare on the pic makes it hard to see it well.

Edit- ok never mind, after doing a google image search, it looks like the deluxe figure are packed in robot mode minus the chinese as well.

There sere several figures that were originally Asian only releases that Hasbro brought over as TRU exclusives. Cliff, Springer and Wheelie are three of them but I'm pretty sure there are two or three others I'm forgetting.

Yeah, you're right about Cliffjumper. That's the actual Chinese release. Someone must have bought a Chinese case, and straight up dumped one of the extra CJs at TRU. I would definitely call that a lucky find.

Yea, right when I walked into the aisle... the TRU employee was re-stocking.

She even put out an MP-Thundercracker out.
