It didn't come out earlier? I could have sworn I bought my TRU MP-10 off eBay a month ago.

Called a few here in Michigan, gave them the number that was associated with the pre order as well as asking by name. No idea what I was talking about. One guy seemed to know what is was and said not yet. Anyone else find TRS employees to be among the worst for customer service? I thought toy people would be happier people....

No happier than the people who work in clothing stores. Most people who work there are only there because it's a job, can't blame them really, not with how the economy is. I've had people at TRU all out forget I was on the phone before though. Was a little funny. I was multitasking with a project so I didn't really notice that I had been on hold for 15 minutes. Lol.

On the note of this toy's release... is it possible one store simply broke the street date?

My Toys "R" Us seemed to know what I was talking about when I was on the hunt for Shockwave; the kind gentleman (former Navy sailor even :grin: ) and I even discussed our opinions on WFC while poking around the system's inventory. So really, it depends on if they're familiar with the brand you're looking for.

I had the page bookmarked on the TRU website, but it seems they've removed the listing.

Thats just to damn expensive, i dont care how cool the figure is i can think of much better things to do with a hundred bucks, besides im sure itll be on sale or on clearance soon enough.

The days of store employes knowing about their products is long over, they would rather hire a moron who works for minimum wage and can be fired on the spot than someone who knows about the products but will only work for $10 an hour and job security. Sometime you will encounter a person who will research the stuff after getting the job but thats rare. Besides with comouters now all they have to do is type in a keyword and look it up, not always helpful but thats how they think now. Just another reason why i miss K B Toys, the people who worked there knew everything there was.

I will check my local TRU today but I am not hopeful.
Why is it no one cares at TRU.
They should be glad they have a job and give at least 60% effort.
We need to get some transformer fans in the job.

I wonder if everyone who pre-ordered is going to have to wait until Mid October, like the website claimed. Bah!

To those who didn't get one in, I wish you luck finding him!

TRU.com doesn't ship on the dates, just when the item is received..
It was "excepted in or around Oct. 15th"..


that means, it could be any time,

First person to post the shipping email wins a Kremzeek.

I don't know but I'd be fine with that. Much better than not having it since Masterpiece figures NEVER appear on Australian shelves.

Then ill have to keep an eye out for it. never got an MP10 or a trailer for my MP01. After looking at a video comparison of the 01 and 10 molds seems ill like MP10 better than my 01.
