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.

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.

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.

Does the TRU MP Optimus have the Shortened Smoke stacks like with MP-01 that was released in the states? or the normal smoke stacks?

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.

This again? Seriously? Okay then, you wait for clearance. Let us know how that works out for you. By the way, you are nuts. $250+ for the Takara, or $100 for the FIRST domestic MP Optimus Prime with a trailer and ALL accessories? This is a no-brainer and MOST of us are VERY pleased.

Hopefully, HasBLO won't choose to listen to things like your post and ruin it for everyone else.

Both MP-02 Ultra Magnus and MP-04 Convoy Perfect Edition were sold at retail (Target) in Australia. And TRU AU has confirmed they'll be stocking MP Optimus Prime.

So here's my story. I frequent my local TRU here in San Diego and have a pretty cool relationship with the staff. They are always holding items for me and will usually call me as soon as they unload a truck at around 7:30am, that may have an item that I have been inquiring about. With that said, about 3 weeks ago I get a call about MP-Thundercracker. Score! Yesterday at 7:30am I got a call to let me know MP-Prime was on hold for me to pick up. Score! Life is good. "Til all are one!" or at least til all have a hook up like mine at a TRU. :BOT:

Agreed. Even when my TRU had one lonely MP Grimlock sitting on the shelf got WEEKS that sucker didn't go on sale. That thing had to have been there for a month and a half before someone finally took pity on him and bought it.

Back when I wasn't interest in MP's... and didn't have much money because I was fresh out of college...

Any idea of the SKU? That's how I found MP Thundercracker. Also any idea if Prime will still be around by Christmas? My sister was going to get this for me as a present and I'd hate for her to have to get it now.

FYI about his smoke stacks, if I remember correctly they do telescope in and out as part of the transformation.

Not 100% sure whether I have it, but after I per-ordered mine online, in the email, the item number is 15546036.

So excited I found this board today. I too like the hunt, but been busy lately and treck to TRU is not always possible. Found a MP Thundercracker by sheer luck. Store told me they were all gone, but I went anyway and grabbed the last one. On a side note I refuse to pay scalper prices on ebay even though the market is so over saturated right now prices have almost leveled off. I saw a few sell for 10 bucks over retail. Tack on ebay and paypal fees, and they are loosing money. Dumb scalpers. If any one wanted to pick up a MP Prime for me I am willing to pay retail plus shipping and tax. Also heading south on Friday and will hopefully get to stop at a TRU on the way. If anyone needs me to look for something let me know and I be happy to help out.

I honestly wouldn't stress too much, I've got a feeling he was either pulling your leg or didn't know. I can't see them only getting 2 per store, even if they short supply him. Odds are he's 2 pieces per case (based on his size), so a single case per store for a whole country seems a bit underwhelming.

There's 1500 TRU stores worldwide, that's 3000 MP OP's, that's the initial order number for a Hasbro retail exclusive.

So that's actually 2 per store.


the question is will they be re-ordering?

Well if we're going off worldwide counts like that, the US & Canada are screwed because Honk Kong already got a LOT more than 2 per store, so they're either dipping into our numbers, or that 1500/3000 number is a bare minimum and they're already planning to far surpass that 3000 number. My guess is we're going to see at least as many as we saw with TC if not more.

Decided to just walk in to my local TRU here in Miami, Florida, and he wasn't on the shelf but I asked the nice lady at the customer service register and they showed 2 in stock for their store as well as all the other local stores.

The manager was nice enough to retrieve the box from the truck and I walked out with MP-10.

So, heads up everyone in Florida and the East Coast....he's here.

653569776314 is the number I've been using when calling TRU and as long as you tell them it's the number on the receipt, not the UPC, they'll input it correctly and it will come up.
