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.

They're not going on clearance dude. Any store that has glut of them, which will be highly unlikely, won't clearance them either I'm willin to bet.
If u can get TC for < $100 than consider yourself lucky

A lot of my buddies went. They said they had a blast. One did pick me up the Stormtrooper break room print. Gotta go get it framed......

Figured the MP line would go up a little. I am surprised to see that Prime will only be 100 bucks, though. Can't wait for that one.....

I noticed that too. Does anyone who has the figure know if the crotch piece, where the cockpit slides into, has been fixed into place? I can't get it to fold in or out and the instructions are crap since they're for the old mold.

Agreed.
Just opened my TC today and compared with mp11, obviously the cheaper price comes with the cheaper quality.
Here are things I found in TC so far:
1. Parts fall off easily: tail fin, null ray, even the whole wing falls off once.
2. Jet mode, there's little gap in the pilot area, and on the connection of backbone with body.
3. Something is a little weird about legs joints and connection to body, joints seem to twist a little bit when shorten legs into jet mode, then create some gap.
Mp11 does not have any of above issues. Mp11 jet mode is very neat and no gap at all anywhere.

Found pics of MP-11 and Hasbro Thundercracker side by side here if anyone is interested: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transform ... ew-23.html


Interesting about the difference in quality of construction of each figure. I'll be getting MP-11 on Wednesday, I'm curious to see what you guys are noticing. I only have the Hasbro version of MP-03 to compare to, and Thundercracker feels much better than mp-03, the plastic doesn't feel as flimsy.

For those that live in NYC and is still looking for this, the Toys R Us in Time Square have them in stock. When I left there tonight 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!

Interesting to know. I saw one at the store and from the observation, I thought the plastic canopy looks cheap. I didn't purchase right away due to the wife was there also, lol.
