Coffee ain't doing it? Wake yourself up with a loud boom this Wednesday morning by ordering Masterpiece Thundercracker from ToysRUs.com! Courtesy of an informant, the recently sighted Hasbro variant of Masterpiece Thundercracker is in stock and ready for shipping at the low, low price of $55.99 US. Get the high flying seeker before, dare I say it, he flies away! Yo. He flew away.

That is a great deal and I am glad they are limiting them to 1 per customer as well so that collector's actually want one have a shot at them. I am really hoping this sale does well for them so that they do something similar with Optimus Prime. I really want that Optimus, but the closest TRU to me is a little too out of the way to check more than once every week or two.
Good luck to everyone who wants a Thundercracker, I hope you are all able to get one :BOT:

Done and done, my order's IN! What a great catch by Seibertron. I got up for work half an hour ago and saw this, what a score. Total came to just under $60- that's 16 less than retail and no driving/calling around. Whoo!

Wow sold out already! Wasted weeks of page refreshing .. Thanks for screwing over the west coast. I'm really starting to hate TRU! Guess it's back to the phones today, hoping something turns up before I feed a scalper.

Agreed.....every auction on ebay is around $130 some at 200+....

I got one at a local TRU, but this really sucks for everyone actually trying to get one. Scalpers really ruin it for collectors - AND kids.

It sucks not being in the US. Though I did ask my friend to order it online and send onto me. I hope she ordered it before it went out of stock. Also, scalpers suck. Toys R Us limited it to 1 per order but they just have to place multiple orders.

Omg i hate scalpers!!!! but what will be more worth it. Takaras or hasbros(kinda thinking why not takara since scalpers charge so damn much)
*edit why is the takara version so expensive? I wouldnt pay 300+ for even a MISB G1 thundercracker
i hope since optimus prime is being released around christmas, that he will have a bigger release. And since hes more expensive scalpers will have a harder time buying him.

I had one in my cart but something happened and the website wouldn't complete my transaction. Now it's sold out! I talked to customer service but they didn't have any record of my order. The nice lady I talked to did say that the stores will price match the website. Oh well, maybe next time. :BANG_HEAD:

This was a really nice surprise to get to work at 8:00 and see the headline on my homepage. A real relief too since stores in Maryland seem to be on a real lag from the rest of the country (as far as I can tell from the Sightings Page, anyway). My heart goes out to those who missed, I was worried I'd never see this guy for retail price.

Of all the days to have insomnia, I feel I hit the jackpot! For now on Seiberton.com is my homepage. This site has just saved me many many gallons of gasoline for trips to Toys R Us.

Oh and the the cost! Under $60 and shipping just in time for my birthday. :CON: :)
