Yesterday I got Masterpiece Thundercracker, Voyager Dreadwing and Fall of Cybertron Jazz was free. So, the "Buy One, Get One Free" works for exclusives. I was also able to place them in Layaway. Thought this news would come in handy for anyone not wanting to shell out all the cash but still get all the figures.

excellent news. I really want Wheelie and Springer, and quite tempted by the other 2. Not really holding out much hope of the TRU near me getting them in though.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

I love the Wheelie so I'll grab him. Great color and awsome mold! I've been wanting a triple changer springer for years. To bad Springer isn't a tripple changer. Swerve? i don't need him. Pass on cliffy, We don't need Four Hasbro cliffjumpers in one year.

PREACH. I can understand if there were an overabundance of them at the store he bought them at, but snatching them up solely to make a profit and take them out of the hands of other collectors who actually want the figures is rather rude, in my opinion. When I found 4 MP Thundercrackers, did I buy them all? No. I bought 3....one for myself, and two for friends in other states who haven't been able to find him. I left the other one on the shelf, because I want another collector to have the thrill of turning down that aisle and finally finding him.

Surprisingly, TRU's Deluxes are the cheapest I've found, at $14.90-ish. Other retailers are asking $15.75. I wouldn't think they'd be overpriced, that would be a little absurd.

I'm getting all except for Wheelie, as I'm perfectly comfortable with my G1 Wheelie on my shelves, and I don't need an extra. Springer, I'll get just because I don't have a leader for my Wreckers, Swerve, I'm getting because MTMTE has made me love him, and CJ I'm getting because I like the mold and character. I also may pick up an extra CJ for a friend who just moved and can't buy one, but Cliffy is one of her favorite characters.

Now where the slag are the other sizes? I hunger for Blue, Dead End, Sandstorm, Hot Spot, Powerdive, and Laserbeak.

Wait. Why are these packed in Alt mode when they are packaged in Bot mode in Asia?

That just goes to show Hasbro repackaged them for US retail... So what's up with the Asian "Excusiveness?"

Hey guys, back off. I bought a case from RobotKingdom before they announced that they'd be released in the US. At the time, I thought it was the only way I could get these figures, and I planned to sell the extras AT COST. I didn't snatch them off the shelves to scalp them. Get the facts before you accuse someone of being rude or selfish. All I'm looking to do now is recover my costs.

I hate seeing the words "TRU Exclusive" because that means unless I get lucky and manage to get one if they post them for sale online I won't likely see them around here. The closest TRU to me is too far away to check more than once every couple weeks and to date they haven't done very well about stocking TF exclusives. Only time I usually see them here is when something is massively overstocked or not much in demand. So that means if I want these $14.90 bots they will end up costing me multiples of that on eBay. I still don't understand why TRU and the Hasbro Toy Shop don't take online pre-orders for bots like these aimed more at the collector market so that everyone that wants one can get them for retail price and Hasbro and TRU are left with less chance of being hit with inventory they can't move.

Guess Im swinging by TRU on the way home from work. Not really committing to any of these until I see them. I need a Wheelie, but not sure of one that is bigger than other figures.

Does anyone have a number I would be able to use for the store? Went by there earlier in my neck of the woods- no luck, even when I talked to an associate. I think that number, like the one given for MP Thundercracker, would definitely help...
