Does anybody have an item number so I can try and find it at Costco?

 

Never mind, found it myself, here it is if anybody else needs it, 994294.

Thanks, I called them and they have it.  I think I will pick it up next week for him.  I'll think about it.

Went to TRU today, saw Metroplex, Acid Storm, and the Ultra Magnus special edition figure. It felt like a dream where the store has everything you want....in stock! I only bought Metroplex, I'm going back tomorrow to pick up Acid Storm.

I price matched Metroplex at TRU to the Costco price. All I did was show the Customer Service lady a photo of the stack of Metros at the Costco with the price visible. I also had close up photos of the price card and the UPC from the box, but she said she didn't need to see those. Not only did I get him for $79.99 + tax, but because it's TRU I get the rewards points and I've contributed to my 10% cash back for the holidays.

 

It was easy since the Costco and TRU are right next to each other.  :-P

I know it's already been said here and elsewhere that I'm sure most of us frequent, however I have to say I cannot get over how freakin' massive Metroplex actually is. It's like being a kid again with a "my size" Transformer. And he is hefty too; fairly heavy for being all plastic. Some of his phrases are awesome, and the light up chest is cool and all, but for me (and my twisted sense of humor) it's all about the individually articulated fingers. Metroplex rode shotgun on my commute today, happily flipping the bird with both hands to all the other drivers.  ;)

I picked up Metroplex on Wednesday at costco.  I'll give it to my son for the holidays, he should be excited!

 I had to hide that big box.

 Glad you were able to pricematch at TRU good idea about using rewards points.   I actually get points for using costco card and they give money back at end of year I think.

 How did Thomas96 get a coupon for costco?

I saw Kre-O Transformers Custom Kreon at TRU I got optimus and soundwave for my son.  I hope they are good-did anyone get these?

 

Anybody seen these in a store -TRANSFORMERS 3" BLINDBOX MINI SERIES?  or do you have to buy online?  Are these nice?

Heads up!

 

I picked up a number of Transformers on clearance today.  I got Abominus ($7.48), Darksteel ($9.99) and Sharkticon Megatron ($13.98).  I also saw Shockwave ($13.98).

 

This is not all Targets, as I was at one yesterday that had no Transformers of any kind on clearance.  I thought it was worth mentioning, though.

Oh man, those are some good prices.  Was just at Target yesterday that had the Ultimate Predaking on sale... for 3 cents off.  Seriously.  59.96.  With a big sale tag.   sigh.

 

Part of me wants the Ultimate scale Prime and Predaking, but they look like supersized basic figures and are 60 bucks each... C'mon clearance/sale!

Prowl and Bluestreak are available from importers, I don't think Smokescreen is out yet but should be by the end of the year.  The ones wastedyouth posted appear to be scheduled for next year, as well as a Soundblaster repaint of Soundwave is coming with a Ratbat cassette.

 

On November 19th, Takara Tomy will announce the winner of the fan poll for which Autobot / Maximal / Cybertron leader should get the Masterpiece treatment as part of the 30th anniversary.  Some Googling finds articles in July saying Star Saber was leading, followed by Armada Optimus and Dai Atlas, don't know if there are more recent updates.

 

There's a 20% off purchase coupon on the Toys R Us home site, good until Nov 2nd.

C'mon Hasbro, work out your licensing so we can see the new MP's stateside!  They could get licensed cars for movie and Alternators, so it should be possible right?

 

Just don't want to pay that much for such small figs, regardless of how good they are.

 

MP BB, if it happens, might break me, provided it follows the others with a G1-esque mode, but what happened to VW not wanting their stuff associated with "war" (why BB was a camero for the movies etc)?

I was thinking about that and then I found out he doesn't make the gun sounds. The sounds were the best part of the toy. I wish I would have took better care of shockwave when I had him. If I could only go back in time.

I got my MP Bluestreak from BBTS.  I love Bluestreak but I'm a bit disappointed.  It looks beautiful but feels more like a $10-15 toy than a masterpiece, materials-wise.  I don't think I will be picking up Prowl or Smokescreen.

 

Metroplex I must get though...to Costco!

So this is a newb question but years ago when the first MP came stateside, I got the first issue Optimus that came to TRU. I still love that toy but the whole thing has become really confusing with all the reissues and many not coming stateside. If I was looking to spend around 100-150 max per figure are there any worth chasing down on ebay? I remember seeing the Grimlock TRU for 70 bucks years ago and regret not buying it so that would be one I'm interested in. I've seen the Sideswipe, Prowl, and Red Alert as low as 60-70 coming from china but Soundwave is 100 minimum. Is this a case of knock offs or fakes being sold? Are the smaller cars just less expensive? Are they more cheaply made? A quick primer would be great if anyone knows a good reference or has some pointers for me.

The TRU Soundwave is definitely worth it with all the extras compared to the Takara version but if you dont mind the gold chroming on Optimus, you may want to wait and see how much the Year of the Horse MP-10 reissue will be.

Prowl, Blue Streak, Sideswipe, Red Alert, Smokescreen, Bumblebee, and Wheeljack are all smaller and fit in Optimus's trailer so they are usually $75-$80 after import fees.

 

Starscream and Sunstorm are $175 to $200 for the japanese versions.

 

Thundercracker, Skywarp, and Acid Storm US Versions can be had for $60 to $100 on the secondary market.

 

Megatron, Grimlock, and Ultra Magnus are $200+ import

Where is a good site for me to sell some of the MISB Transformers I am looking to offload?  I don't have a trade/sell history other than what I have here on CAG.

 

I have ROTF Leader Class Jetfire, ROTF Leader Class Shadow Command Megatron, and TRU MP Grimlock.

 

Thanks for your help in advance!

Try to unload the MP Grimlock on eBay. I bought one for my brother in law for his birthday and then returned the one I bought for myself because I needed the money.  They get something like $180 or so.  Best of luck on it. I don't know if anyone looks for old ROTF stuff.
