I can answer that for you. You might get them, but in smaller amounts. They're figuring out which store will get which allotment.
I called two TRUs and the one in Niles, Ohio said they are in the system, they are in the warehouse, but it's a much smaller order. They were given only what's in the system, nothing more.
And that number is? ...1,500 Deluxes. Not cases, but 1,500 figures, period. (Roughly the same amount for Voyagers, as well.) Sounds like a lot, right? Here's the catch. That 1,500 is for the entire distribution region. My region covers Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. (The same story for all distribution regions, it seems.) My region has 5 states, so that means 300 per state. Which is 37.5 cases per state, at 8 figures per case. There looks to be at least 30 stores in PA, alone. Some stores will get only one case with no restock until the end of the Spring season, which means around May/June. Some won't receive the cases at all.
High volume sales stores will receive them first, then the runner ups. Beyond that, if there's any left, the stragglers will receive what's left, if there is any.
So, if TRU was given a small amount, I wonder what it'll be for Target, K-Mart and Wal-Mart?
So... let's recap, shall we?
DOTM/Movie Trilogy has been pushed back to February. Not all molds accounted for, yet.
Prime First Edition has been released in certain areas, while others can piss off, basically.
PRID figures are coming, but in smaller numbers than usual. Some stores may not receive them this season.
Hasbro...WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!

First Edition is what you're looking for, then.
Why they cut it down so much, I dunno. Makes no sense to have incredible molds, only to replace them with new ones that don't make a lick of sense and have more parts due to their stupid gimmicks.
