so this sort of confirms why TRU.com has put all the pre-orders on hold? They will lose the extra profit if they ship the orders placed at the $59.99 price. I guess I'll just have to hit the stores to find these.

It's pretty disappointing that they aren't following Hasbro's MSRP.

In my humble opinion, TRU is horrible!! :-x they have a horrible Customer Service, horrible communication, and they don't really know how to gain new customers, I think hasbro should have choose Walmart again, or even sell Grimlock themselves.

I am terribly disappointed

Have TRU ever followed MSRP? I suppose they could be closer now that Hasbro's raised the MSRP on the normal figures, but back when $9.99 was the price point for deluxe class, weren't they charging more? I remember that's what I hated about KB before they went down, and that I didn't like TRU either because they weren't much better.

Yeah, especially considering what other figures are on those shelves. For the love of God TRU, update your stock!

$69.99? Well, that's going to have to wait until next month then. If at all. I have the Seacons, TRNS, and Munitioner and Explorer to pick up this month.

So does this mean that all pre-orders at the 49.99 price will be cancelled? I guess that if I see this at the store before my pre-order ships I will pick it up as I will not hold my breath with TRU.com...it is a shame really how they can increase the price as it is the only place to get the domestic release which is still relatively less expensive than the import...as many have said here, let the hunting begin

PS: HUNTING FOR TRANSFORMER TOYS SHOULD BE MUCH LIKE WFC'S VERSION OF A MULTIPLAYER...WHERE YOU GET TO FIND THE TRANSFORMER(S) YOU'RE LOOKING FOR...WHILE TAKING OUT SCALPERS WITH AN X12 SCRAPMAKER :KREMZEEK: (man I've been playing WFC wayyy too much lol)

TRU have confirmed these for the UK too, wish I hadn't dropped the money (£110 Sterling!!) on the Takara one at the time.

It is just too awesoem a figure to have risked missing out on tho'!

If you mean if this has blue eyes the answer is yes and no. Masterpiece Grimlock can change the color of his eyes from red to blue.

I have the Japanese one and I plan on getting the Hasbro version.. Trust me, he is well worth it..
He is actually almost in scale with the classics line as when the dinos first appeared they were HUGE. I actually display my Grimmy with my classics.

Hey does this Grimlock come with the drink tray?

Also: I agree Toys R Us does suck currently, the one near me put out movie figures instead of WFC figures with the game display. :???:
