I saw that this morning too. I've checked like every day for 3 weeks and they're finally there and I can't do anything. I tried adding to layaway cart too and it just gets removed.

Looks like they're down now. I was able to snag screenshots of Prowl and (the comically mistransformed) Sunstorm

Someone at TRU HQ was like "Hey, don't put those up on the website! We don't want people to actually be able to BUY these figures!"

Another guy there was like, "That's probably a good idea. But to be on the safe side, let's only order enough to barely meet consumer demand."

Was able to pick up Sunstorm in person, but there's been no sign of Prowl in NYC... hopefully TRU gets these guys up on the website soon.

Yep. You can buy them now. Changed the Subject line to reflect that. I used a $5 off coupon I got from toysrus in my e-mail to get Prowl. Hooray!

So I went to TRU Times Square last night and they have one Sunstorm left and it was $92.99 and since they pull the listing they won't price match to a screenshot I had on my phone... Whatever! I left it box was not in the best condition anyway.

Was thinking of picking it up today but might as well get it shipped to me its free anyway and hopefully better box.
Oh and no way am I buying that prowl for 70 bucks... got mine from Takara a year ago for $50...
Looking for:
Black Big Convoy
Botcon Redux Spark (Pyro)

for Trade:
MISB FE Arcee
MISB RTS G2 Laser Prime
MISB Generation WFC Megatron

I took a coffee break at 10 on Monday (I work around the corner in Rock Center) to see if they had either MP, and it seems I had first go at the pile of Sunstorms. Only 2 of the boxes were dent-less or crushed-corner-less, and I grabbed both...

Well, looks like I need to take a screenshot and bring the receipt back for a price match!

YOu shouldn't need a Screen shot anymore since it's on their website, and if they take it down your screen shot won't matter.

Depends on the people working at guest services. Some will say no, some will say yes. Most feel they're not paid enough to care about these things. Doesn't hurt to give it a shot, especially when the screen shot is dated in my email.

I'm glad you like S**tstorm's colors. I never liked anything bright yellow mixing with brown... yuck.

Anyone up for some KO Prowl?

Your link doesn't work. And KO MPs is going to kill the line. I F*$King hate KOs. so I'm glad you're happy you save a few bucks to kill the line for everyone else.

Went ahead and ordered Prowl as an uber-late birthday gift. It'll be nice to have a Masterpiece that isn't a flatnosed truck or a Seeker. :roll:

Happy birthday to me! :grin:
