I went to the one here, in Baton Rouge. Its only 5 miles from where I work, but the traffic lights were down and it took me 30mins to get there. Lucky for me the trip was not a waste, they had 3 in stock and I picked up one.

I can't find Thundercracker for the life of me. I've called all TRU's in my area, I've driven to a couple, and no one's ever even heard of it. I tried an SKN I found (787681) on the website and in-store, and it brings up nothing.

Can anyone help out with the actual SKN so my local toys r us can order it for me through another store?

Thanks! :HEADHURTS:

That is the correct number - it's not showing up on the website because it doesn't have the figure available, and most store employees check the website. Ask them to check inventory, which is different.

Odd these hit RI and seem to have entirely missed PA. Argh.

Got mine earlier in the evening here in NY. White Plains Toys R Us had 3 of them. Best of luck to those that haven't gotten it yet. I'd suggest not paying scalper prices yet as TRU seems to do a good job of stocking the exclusive Masterpiece figures. I never had any trouble finding Grimlock or Rodimus.

I have to say, looking at my Walmart exclusive MP Skywarp, the Thundercracker mold and engineering kick the shit out of Skywarp. It's not even close. I used to really like my Skywarp and now... not so much. The pieces move easier, it doesn't seem nearly as fragile and the overall look is just cleaner and has less kibble. If MP Sunstorm was done with this mold I might have to reevaluate my decision to pass on it.

Picked mine up today in Florida. A few Toys R Us stores got 4 in.

BTW, Toys R Us employees are some of the dumbest I've had to deal with. I called 2 stores, each store put me on hold for at least 20 minutes, only to come back and tell me that their systems showed they were in stock but they didn't actually have any. Good thing I didn't believe it and just walked in, found all 4 sitting right on the shelf. :HEADHURTS:

That's why I don't shop at TRU unless all other options have been exhausted (or if there's an exclusive there that I want, which is a rather rare occurrence).

May want to hold funds for the eventual MP Starscream. Wonder how much the coronation parts will bump up the cost.

Looks like 130 is the inflated scalper cost on this.
There's no way in hell I'm paying 200% markup on something that's eventually
Going to go on clearence, just like skywarp.

Skywarp was at Walmart. TC is at TRU, big difference, these may not last long enough to go on clearance years from now.

Called Whitestone TRU this morning at 10am, all are gone.

Fortunately, got one at times square TRU at 12pm. Went there last night but didnot find any. Called this morning, the guy told me they had 12 at the moment, but could not do phone order or even reserve one for me. So I went again, by the time I got there, there were 5 left, now down to 4. The whole experience made me think they put out about 12 each day.
