I just went to the page, it mentions the following...
Out Of Stock
Temporarily Not Available


Not that I could have bought it anyway, Toys R' Us (the american store anyway) doesn't ship overseas!

Again, will it come out before July? My birthday is coming up, and he'd make a great Autobot counterpart against my Masterpiece Skywarp. Other than that, like the mini pics there :APPLAUSE:

Wow, the price at TRU is actually reasonable. I expected something north of $80. I may have to pick this up to display in dino mode or keep boxed.

The same thing happened when they released the Insecticon. I was at TRU this weekend and they had 5 of them sitting there.

Not available yet. Just have patience, it's common practice to put up the listing first as Out of Stock, as a placeholder, you know?

Well, they did that to Animated Arcee, too. A while ago found they put her on the website as out-of-stock, couple days later she was gone for good, never appear again on the website.

Are these TRU exclusive or general release?

I just got a spare Skywarp on super-sale at Wally-World, and I'm hoping they will carry this, as all the MPs have gotten down to at least 1/2 price there.

TRU exclusive...so don't expect to see it for less than retail as TRU pretty much never clearances their exclusives. But that is a pretty nice retail price.

However, it kinda begs the question...if Hasbro can manage to release it for only $60, WTF was the TT retail $145 or whatever it was? I suppose the only legitimate answer for that is: because people were still more than willing to buy it... I gotta say, if the Hasbro version actually keeps the sharp teeth and claws, I regret getting the TT version. Hell, for almost $100 less and having the crown instead of the stupid tray & apron, I kinda regret it either way.

Gotta figure it's not even making it's way to the shelves, plenty of ratchets though.

This thing looks nice, can't wait to get one.

Out of stock as usual. Original price was $99.99 now $59.99. I called my toys r us and had them check 5 other toys r us stores around my area and they don't have it yet. Any idea when these will hit stores? Will they be $99.99 or $59.99? Toys r us exclusives are so elusive.

Me DaiShanPrime want masterpiece Grimlock. Want Grimlock now! :BANG_HEAD:

I don't know what japanese retail was, but the TT release was higher because you have to pay for importing and the companies that do that also mark up the price so they can make a profit.

Good luck with that. I hardly ever see TRU exclusives go onto clearance. And honestly, if I see MP Grimlock on clearance at TRU, I'm buying all of them. There are too many people who got to TRU several times a week looking for just this type of thing.

When I see this, I'm picking it up ASAP.

The Takara release was 10,000 to 13,000 yen on shelves here in Japan. I don't know how Hasbro can release it so cheap even if they skimp on the fancy packaging and the die-cast.

Are the apron, drinks tray, bow tie and intelligence transfer helmet included with the Hasbro release?
