Yep, just wait it out. He'll show up in vast numbers @TRU eventually, just like TC did.

Do NOT feed the scalpers ;).

Do you reckon that TRU will have healthy numbers of MP Thundercracker and/or Optimus by December? I will be in Florida for a couple of weeks and would like to pick one of each up.

One can never tell but I'd like to think so. I'd imagine the MP's would be something of a hot toy for the Holidays.

QFT. That's why I laugh at the vultures on eBay (and even here) who try to sell them at $160-180 and the idiots who actually buy them.

They buy them because they need them NAO and they fear the toy will be cancelled like First Edition.

I don't know where you live homeboy but in VA no MP has come in vast numbers, the last one was Grimlock... and they had stacks of him!, consider yourself lucky if your area is getting vast numbers of MP's!

I got lucky yesterday and found the only Cracker at my local TRU, I hope Optimus shows up soon... hopefully a truck load!
just don't give in to those people that sell them for twice the retail price, I got no respect for those scavengers pos! taking advantage of us collectors...

I don't buy from stores. TRU's website will have him as well, again, just like with TC (but in greater numbers since it's Optimus Prime).

Really? Dang I was really looking forward to see it around at least December or February.

I live in Toledo Ohio and got mine at TRU on Saturday night around 9. I don't know if they put them out Friday night or had just put it out but, it was the only one on the shelf. I didn't look to see if they had some still boxed. I work right by it so I go pretty regularly and it wasn't there Friday afternoon.

I actually went there to get the Chinese Cliffjumper cause the one I was at in Maumee didn't have either. I did get Chinses Laserbeak there though.

So, chin up OP and just keep up on the local stores. Im not sure what their stocking schedule is like but you may want to ask some employees and go late on stock night or first thing next day.
