They also had a healthy amount of FOC Optimus and Jazz.

So, back home now. Cheers for all the replies :) Picked up FoC Prime and Shockwave, and Trilogy Prime as well as some MLP and Dark Knight stuff. Then headed to Image Anime and got the SDCC Cliffjumper, and an MP11 Starscream, who unfortunately has the red and white stripe missing from his right wing :(
And damn, I had no idea MP Thundercracker was available! Otherwise I wouldve picked one up seeing as he's cancelled in the UK :'(

For anyone who is still eager to get one masterpiece TC in NYC, try times square TRU in the morning! I got one from there today, I guess they put out more than 10 on shelf each morning.

For those that live in NYC and is still looking for MP Thundercracker, the Toys R Us in Time Square have them in stock. When I left there tonight 9/3/2012 they still have about 5 of them on the shelves. And they seem to be running some kind of deal/discount because mine only came to about $64.00 after tax. Good luck!

Saw that price tag before, I think it was actually for masterpiece rodimus, as u mentioned. The item number should not be 787681.

Yes it's that's normally true, however when I was there a couple of weeks ago the MP TC's price was $69.99 and there was some sort of discount at checkout. I got my TCs for about $64 each including taxes which I was very happy about.

Don't if he's been out for a while or not, I tend to ignore the Cyberverse thanks to their $10 price, but I found this dude hanging around in Walmart when I was visiting peeps in the southern part of the Hudson Valley, NY

Image

He's the first I've seen, though as I mentioned before, I tend to ignore the class scale.

Was there today. They had at least 30 of them when I was in the store at 5:30 this afternoon, likely more. I didn't stop to count, but he was everywhere.

Yep saw that today when i went to see if they have any of the new Prime voyagers. it is officially shelfwarming... My fear now is that they won't order the Masterpiece prime until these sell out... =/ this happened with their prime deluxe wave.. still haven't seen on vehicon, think they skipped that wave altogether.

Both of you are right. I bought my TC there at $69.99. But I just went there today and guess what? The price is changed now to $86.99! That's insane, no wonder they have like 30 of them on the floor!
