Now, Animated Rodimus and Ironhide, also Toys'R'Us Exclusives have been found by TFW User Marvin16z in a Toys'R'Us in Burbank, California.

:BOOM: If any Americans find a few extra Rodimuses/Rodimi, there's still lots of Recon Ravages up here. ;)

Any more Animated after this wave?

Ha, in the same boat. Just got my fingers on Arcee last month. I have to find these now, plus Grimlock. Hope that One of these shelf warms like Cybertorn Ratchet so it is around latter when I go to get it.

It's the same as the other Animated figures. That's partly what makes it so hard to find them. You have to call and ask someone to look at the Animated figures and have them read the names off to you.

That, or drive to the store constantly.

HAHAHA. This reminds me of when I was frantically trying to get my hands on Animated Arcee and kept calling the Portage, Michigan TRU. One day I get this old lady that came to the phone and says,
"Sorry, all we got are Kie-ber-toon Racket and Ark-ee."

:lol:

Well I'm no fan of Animated. I did not chase Arcee, but I was intrigued by Rodimus, so I got the Sons of Cybertron set instead. Now that's an awesome set. I know that the Japanese toys are better even clear Optimus doesn't fall apart as much as the US two pack did.

Grabbed a bunch of the new releases at TRU earlier this week (Huffer, Hubcap, Legends Ravage, too bad I ordered Drift online as he was everywhere) and while they restocked the Animated toys, no Ironhide, Rodimus, or MP Grimlocks were to be found. Have to go back now and search since there is nothing posted online. #-o

They were found in CA, figures. Chances of finding them in NE Ohio anytime soon: very low. Unless someone's seen them; we get everything last! My stores are waiting until they've sold every freaking RotF figure left, even though there's like 5 unwanted Wheelies and Ratcets on the shelf.

Hasbro's Thundercracker has been delayed indefinitely and Takara's Thundercracker has yet to be mentioned.

I got mine in Oregon on the 7th, and normally we're the last ones to get ANYTHING. Check behind all the Movie and Generations figures - I found mine mixed in with the Tuner Mudflap army.

My TRU didn't get any Rodimus or Ironhide. At least they didn't put them out. I saw a box of MP Grimlocks they didn't put out yet so I suppose they could have had them and didn't put out them out. They did get a box of Animated Voyagers that had 1 ea. of Optimus, Grimlock, Blitzwing, and Lugnut.

Now I like the clear blue windows on Animated Rodimus, but I think the Takara version will look much better with brighter colors. The clear Animated Roddy has clear unpainted windows. Also his transformation hides the front wheels under the front hood when in robot mode. He almost had the '86 movie transformation. Still it's an awesome toy.
