There was a lot of debate as to how Toysrus would sell their exclusive Transformers Titans Return Arcee. Being an online exclusive made sense due to how it was packaged in a black box and how it appealed more to fans who would be savy enough to find it online. Plus, it being online only meant the purchases could be controlled with limits of two per customer. However, it seems this toy is making it to brick and mortar locations after all.
Bowser A. Flatiner, a TF fan, found a case of these exclusive Arcees at a Toysrus in Brooklyn, NY, selling at $26.99 each. This toy can still be purchased on their website. This sighting was reported on Ben's World of Transformers and the image sure enough shows that they are displayed in their black boxes with very little clue as to what is inside.

In other Titans Return sightings news, we have been told by Seibertronian Bradimus that Titans Master Ramhorn has been appearing at the Aldi grocery chain. They have been found for $3.99 and you can check for a store near you by clicking here.

Yo. I actually have an Aldi! Jelze, do you mind if I ask what region you spotted your Ramhorn?

O, I didn't spot them myself, as I mentioned before the Ramhorn sighting in question is from Pennsylviana, and one of our board members has spotted him with two of his case mates (Ptero and Apeface) in Michigan. Still waiting on photo confirmation.

I'm somewhat further away, in Dallas area TX, but I may visit my nearby Aldi soon and see what I can find. I'll be taking pics of course, with or without Rambi ;)

:EDIT: Did some looking, and it looks like Aldi got full cases of Wave 5, which includes:

- Ramhorn
- Apeface
- Ptero
- [strike]Overkill[/strike]Overboard

I checked the Aldi's down the block from our apartment (West Knoxville, TN) and had no luck. They had some larger toys, but the only stocking-stuffer type things they had were candy.

Aldi is awesome. Fun fact: same parent company as Trader Joe's. I 'member looking through some for PRiD Vehicons when they were scarce.

No Transformers at all at the Aldi in Jackson, TN.

Never heard of Aldi before. The good news one there is one in my state! Only 260 miles away :lol: ...a 520 mile round trip for a 4 dollar toy that may-or-may-not be in stock...The prospect of ordering online through BBTS paying 20 for the whole assortment isn't looking so bad now. But if TFSource is supposed to have the individual Ramhorn in January sometime, I'm hoping January B&M may have some late release TR. If its true the color was changed, maybe there was a reason for it? Maybe the early Ramhorns weren't supposed to be mass released?

At any rate, even thogh PotP wave 1 is rolling out in many areas, I'm still holding out hope to see TR wave 5 Deluxes and Ramhorn at some point.

Also, while I was fortunate enough to get Arcee through TRU.com early on, I initially thought I'd be happy to se them at B&M. But now, seeing all those black boxes on shelves. Unless you know what this is, you will have no desire to purchase it, for once I say this doesn't work for B&M. They should have at least designed the box with some art indicating what the toy is.

They had 1 Ramhorn, 1 Apeface and 1 Ptero by the register. I don't know if there is a fourth figure in the assortment. I bought the Ramhorn.

Now I'm only waiting to get Windblade and Twin Twist.

Special thanks to JelZe GoldRabbit for the sighting report! ;)^


Pics with Receipt to News it? :-D

Repugnus should be part of that assortment as well, unless it's all just leftovers resold. Anyone with an Aldi, report your sightings!


Sure thing:

So, has Grotusque sold out really, quickly, or has Toys R Us simply not made it available yet online?

You know, selling Arcee in that Packacging doeasn't saeem like a really great idea. Especially once Grotusque hits in the exact same box.

Got my Ramhorn at Aldis! For anyone looking, these are in a small box marked "Hasbro Stocking Stuffer" I walked past them 4 different times before I finally said :Hey, they gotta near the action figures" and found them.

I also picked up Overboard and Ptero. I passed on pretty much all the Titan Master figures because I just dont care for the head dudes, but Overkill looked like fun and I wanted to get the Ptero for Swoop to have a drone because why the heck not?

We think alike, although my Ptero went to Slash instead so she had a weapon, plus have someone ride her. I don't have Clobber sadly, that would have completed the party.

I totally forgot about Clobber. I actually thought about givng Ptero to Slash but that is a very large cannon and a very , uh, "lithe" dinobot

People are confused because Toys R Us keeps sending out early morning emails telling people it's in stock when it isn't. I got an email at 3:37am ET this morning and checked immediately (I'm a night owl) and there wasn't anything there. And because of the stupid "low stock" status on the website you can't even sign up for alerts there, you have to go through the mobile site where it correctly says "out of stock".

So... it's out of stock? Or they just haven't made it... I'm sorry. It's just so confusing for me right now. And kinda frustrating, too. :KREMZEEK:

Grotusque has not been made available for purchase on TRU's website yet, despite emails to the contrary. That's the long and short of it. You haven't missed him.
