This one is the first masterpiece exclusive toy I've actually got. Missed out on the Hot Rod/Rodimus and Grimlock when they came out.

Most stores have started limiting them to 1 per person. I got mine a few days ago. I called as soon as the store was open to check on stock. I was told they did have them in but could only hold one and only for an hour. When I got down there, I inquired about picking up a second one (none were on the shelf) and the manager told me that they were being told by the District Manager that this was now required to be a 1 per person item because of heavy scalping issues. He also mentioned that this had come down from coorporate and the manufacturer. Now that could be a misundering of information through the chain of command, but if true, bravo to TRU & to Hasbro! I checked with the other 2 stores in town and they confirmed 1 per person was being put into place by the higher ups.

Another interesting bit of news is that all the stores here in town are not putting them on the shelves. They're keeping them all at the customer service desk and are being handed out only by the manager. This makes it a lot harder to buy one, and come back to pick up a second one from another cashier.
