That was my intention when I picked it up. So far no-one has inquired plus its cheaper to get it off the site.
Good man. Good man. Although it boggles me that no one asked u about yours. Hmmph.
I don't know where he heard this, but a collector friend of mine told me that the first wave of TCs was a "test run" from TRU to determine demand. Then supposedly by sometime next month they will be out in greater supply. I would love to hear this from someone else too -to make it easier to believe.
They don't do trial runs, they order a run and it's done.
It cost's a ton of money to keep manufacturers on Stand by.
Exclusives are always a one shot, one kill process.

"MASTERPIECE THUNDERCRACKER: Redeco of MP-11 Coronation Masterpiece Starscream minus the coronation accessories (it has numerous mold changes from the original Masterpiece Starscream, and some transformation differences not shown in the old-mold instructions packed with it), in Generations-style packaging but without the Generations logo. $69.99. 8/29/12: Culver City CA, Glendale CA. 9/11: I have been informed that TRU is being very cautious with this, and only releasing it to a few high-volume stores right now. Response has been solid enough that they plan to release it to the rest of the stores next month, or so.

I must say that this news appears to be local for LA so far. I didn't know when I first mentioned this a few posts ago, as I have just seen this today. Sorry. I hope TRU decides to do this for all of the US. (And where's that g*^&*mn MP Prime already?!?!?!?)
