  1. If it's a phone order they have to ship it, but you do have to go into another Toys R Us to verify address and pay, they won't take credit card numbers over the phone. Yeah I know, they won't even hold the item so I can get to a store though. And the ones that are willing to hold it, will only do so for an hour and when I ask about the shipping, they say no, it has to be picked up in person, they can't ship "exclusives". I've spent 3 days on the phone haha, probably doing the same tomorrow. Luckily the manager Of one of the stores here confirmed that if I can get them to hold it, & agree to ship it, he'd do his part on this end.
  2. They released one similar, it was Shadow Command Megatron, and he was black with red ... This looks more like Dark Energon purple. Minor difference I know, but from what I can see so far, it makes a world of difference.
  3. So far TRU is being a pain! I really hope I can scrounge this up with using eBay. All the ones I've checked with are sold out minutes within opening or won't hold them. One held it, but wouldn't ship it, they'd only do in store pickup within an hour ... I'm already so sick of TRU over this guy, I wanna cry haha ... On topic though, he looks amazing and if I can get him, it'll (probably) be worth the effort.
  4. Omega keys?!? Oh please oh pleas oh please... *crosses fingers* Must. Refrain. From. Getting. Hopes. Up!
  5. No, that was the bizare dinosaur head that you can equip to your created character, but it won't allow him to transform into a Triceratops, just have a Triceratops head in robot mode Yup, I've got it on Jazz's alt mode for the time being ... Looks hilarious, I love it! I can't wait for these guys! Plus it'll be really interesting to see how they balanced everything, because, for instance, if Grimlock plays as he did in the campaign, he'll get eaten alive by the speed of multiplayer. But if they made his alt as fast as the other titans, it's going to be funny watching a giant space T-Tex running as fast as a truck!
  6. Haha yeah that's what I was thinking too ... vehicle mode is nice though, but dear god that white and red really brings out just how hideous movie Starscream is! That Megatron looks like it would have potential though.
  7. All the Targets and Wal-Marts here have started restocking the Prime line. Actually just picked up Airrachnid last week (yes she sucks, but I still wanted her for my show shelf haha). TRU is still a scalping nightmare thanks to the elusive Thundercracker MP that we can't find, but the other stores are splitting shelf space with Prime and FOC. Hopefully voyagers aren't far behind because Starscream was the last one I was able to get, and that was months ago, but the stores have been empty on those for a while too. As for the tags, all the tags say are "Transformers Deluxe", there's no actually line name in there, and they're being mixed accordingly.
  8. HA! That would be funny....I would buy 2 and use that head sculpt on the other one.....:D Lol I'll tell ya right now, if they release him in red & black too, the blue one is getting the new head! I'm sure I can find a use for the blue version head somewhere ... Maybe throw it on a Bumblebee haha
  9. Picked up the deluxes, debating on the voyagers ... Prime is pretty blah, but I really like Megs colors, even though the mold is kinda weak. My regular one feels really cheap with thin plastic. I may think about it though, we'll see.
  10. Yeah, I can look past the minor head issues, especially when I see that arm cannon of his! *nerdgasm* plus he said logical! I damn near sqealed lol (I really need to seek professional help some day)
  11. They didn't say, and the only new clip of him in the ad was him back flipping away from gun fire. My bets are still on Smokescreen just because of the previous "season preview" we saw, there's a good shot of his car mode with some key features that stood out.
  12. Sell more toys? And maybe even they realize this is a better head sculpt? Haha
  13. Ouch!!! That sucks royally, I feel like I've just been kicked in the nuts :( Thanks for the heads up ... Maybe eBay will end up with my business afterall, crap! I'm really hoping I can get lucky this weekend on the phone. Not cool TRU ... Not cool :(
  14. I can only hope a third is approved! C'mon Escape From Cybertron!! Haha
  15. Yeah ebay prices are fucking nuts! I've got 3 TRUs in town, 1 didn't get any in today, 1 was sold out by the time They answered the phone, and the 3rd admitted he sold off 2 cases to 1 dude as soon as the doors opened (and I had called all 3 within 10 minutes of opening). On all the pervious MP's each store only got one shipment ... Really hoping they do more this time around, otherwise looks like my best bet is tracking them down like you did. Looks like I'm on the phone a LOT this weekend haha. God, I really hate TRU! Seriously the manager sold 2 cases all of the figures to one person...what a douchebag....I feel bad wanting to buy 2 of them....i hope that all the people who did that wind up sitting on them all....some good news...the TRU I talked to said they got 2500 in their warehouse and that is in Southern California. I haven't seen it show up online, which honestly I would rather do since they have free shipping and I could probably order more than one....Hope to find them tomorrow....but apparently there are a lot of people who want this figure and others who want it because others want it.....:tfevil Lol yeah tell me about it! I'm really hoping I can snag 2 online or find some in stores. If I happen to find any extras I'll let everyone here know and sell them off at cost+shipping, nothing more just to help out someone avoid the scalpers! I was pissed when the manager told me that, but his excuse was "first come first serve" and that they're not supposed to limit the quanties people buy once doors open, which freaking blows! And to make matters worse, rumors are starting to circulate that this is being considered "non replenishable stock" so once a store sells out, that's it. Not sure how true it is, but given my past difficulties with Roddy & Grimlock, I'm nervous now.
  16. I think the "Brawn using Bulkhead mold" is going to be under the Generations line, so in theory that still leaves it open to use in Prime eventually. Although with Ironhide & Kup sharing the mold already, I'm not sure they'd throw a third name on the mold, especially since none of them are in show (at least yet).
  17. Right on man ... I appreciate the help. Hopefully I can turn something up, considering with the other MP's some people claimed they shelf warmed for at least a month haha
  18. Yeah ebay prices are fucking nuts!

  19. It's not just you haha. Maybe he's trying to disguise himself as Arcee? Or he's a Trannyformer ... (ok part of me died as I typed that!) Ironhilda? Lmao ... Oh that's scary to think about!
  20. That's awesome news man!! Thanks for the info! I'm going to have to start hunting for a store that's got an extra pair of these and then start praying haha. My TRUs suck and have already been scalped clean (manager admitted one guy came in & bought 2 cases) and since I work M-F 8am-5pm, the odds of me finding one on the shelf is going to be near impossible. Hopefully I can snag 2 of them somewhere along the way.

    Nevada sightings

    Anyone here in Vegas? I'll start posting findings if there's anyone it will help ... Seems Vegas has become scalper central lately though.
  22. BBTS to the rescue again. Ever since the Seacons they've really been stepping things up. Good to see them getting even more access for those of us whose TRUs really stink!
  23. It's not just you haha. Maybe he's trying to disguise himself as Arcee? Or he's a Trannyformer ... (ok part of me died as I typed that!)
  24. Wow, that is, umm, well... Bot mode looks good, not fan of the cape mode and the alt mode is just hideous! I think it's supposed to be his volcano form, with his face in the rocks, but it just comes off looking like a jumbled mess.
  25. Street light Soundwave had me yelling for joy! No one outside the diehard fandom has any clue what "lamp post mode" means, and to actually see that referenced in something official outside the original showing, was just pure win! And yeah Puma, I feel sorry for this generation who doesn't get half the things happening in the game! (damn, I really just used "this generation" ... Now I feel old lol)
