Where I live there is 1 tru within 100 miles and every exclusive they have had scalpers in my area clean them out. It's to the point where I feel like I need to grease some palms to the workers at TRU to get a toy >:|


Is your TRU willing to hold a toy for the day? Or a few hours? Worth asking, at any rate.

This is a good toy.

If you have the money to buy one and you don't buy one, you are a bad person.

Is that before or after sales tax? :P

For Primus' sake! Get the big lug once it's available! You won't regret it! Already have the Takara version, (didn't eat for a week because of the prchase :lol: ) but it was sure worth it!

Not too sure on the quality of the plastic but US$ 100.00 is a virtual steal! I hope we hear less of the bellyaching about, wish the trailer wasn't included or the price is still too high...........sheesh! Take it or leave it!

$85 and $50 or lower would have been more palatable for MP Prime and TC, but I want these so bad I'll pay full retail. Initially, I was gonna pass on Prime, but a friend of mine said he's vastly superior to the first mold (still find it hard to believe!) and I've always wanted a nice trailer. (Heck, it'd be $99 just for a MP-1 trailer alone wouldn't it?). Hopefully TRU will have a good online sale or some type of in store coupon to soften the blow. Now we just need to know when these SOBs are comin out!!
