are they really getting out there?

 

Or is this all those stores will ever see?

 

Lest we not forget Optimus Prime 2.0 after all.....

Well, I never had this luck with Prime. Only one of the three stores around here got Prime, and they only got two. The fact that this Toys R Us got a stockpile is really good news for everybody I believe. I'm guessing they are shipping them out to particular areas. I wasn't expecting this area of NJ to get him so soon. My advice to everyone is to find out be exact times their TRU gets trucks in, and call and find out when they are expecting MP SW in.

*sigh*

 

I live in Eau Claire, WI. The nearest tru is about 70ish miles south of me on an indirect route

 

I really need for the website to get them back in stock regularly again. Or I will NOT be able to buy one of these :(

tickets? I swear to god if this thing isn't heftily distributed by the end of the month....

Yup, a ticket. Just like the ones if you were buying something that was too big, like a swing set or something. They were being extra careful telling people one per customer, and if there were two individuals together purchasing him, they had to pay for it out of their pocket. It's kind of cool they were taking steps to make sure there is fairness involved and combatting scalpers. And I don't know the total numbers they had, but 7 of us bought him upon their opening and they still had some left. They seem to be getting out there, but make sure you're very proactive in finding out when he arrives.

 

Thanks man!! Got him!!! I called last night around 5pm and the girl said they were getting a truck at 8 and he was "rumored" to be on it. She said call back at 9 and see if they had him. I figured I'd wait until about 9:30 to make sure but managed to fall asleep on the couch! So, I got up this morning and took a gamble and drove out to the store. I arrived in the parking lot at 7:30am and there was already one car sitting there. I waited and figured I'd get out at 8:45 and go stand at the door. Would you believe at 8:30 if started to rain? Anyway, that wasn't going to stop me. So, close to 8:45 a few more cars showed up and one individual got out of his car and so I knew that was my cue. Come to find out, everybody in front of me were Toys R Us employees!! I think that was cool they weren't allowed to buy them when they came in. At about 8:50, an on duty employee came out and handed out "tickets" for him. There were only 7 of us in line so it was cool. I passed on Acid Storm as did everyone else. I have a feeling he'll shelf warm and will be able to pick him up later. Needless to say, Inam happy right now. I was very pissed with the whole online fiasco again!! I wish I could have bought a second one to try and help get one into the hands of someone who needed one, but they only allowed one per customer.

Awesome, man! I had a fellow TF collecting co-worker kind enough to nab one last Saturday morning for me while I was out of town! One of only two shipped to my local TRU...shewww! They're getting out there, folks...it's just PAINFULLY slow.

 

Ordering this thing online is an absolute joke by now...don't know what's going on between TRU & Hasbro. :shrug

Yeah, it's almost worthless. I signed up for the email alert when he was available............nothing!!! At least they sent me one for Prime, after he had ready sold out!!! I'd tell people to keep trying online too. You might get lucky.

I need to wait for him to shelfwarm some I guess....Like I said, getting to a nearby tru will not be any sort of easy feat. It will require a day-long road trip to the Twin Cities where there are 7 tru's in the area...But for all I know, none of them could have him in stock...Just like how it was with Prime 2.0 and even the FE figures for that matter

Now he's available for store pickup...but not for ship-to-home. I ran every zipcode of every tru within a 200 mile radius of me through the site and all of them were listed as "out of stock" :(
