I'm guessing that they delayed them. BigBadToystore.com was going to sell these "TRU" exclusives and they went backordered to Feb 07. They sent an email indicating that their "distributor" hasn't gotten them yet or something like that. I'd say wait it out for a nother month or two.

Funny how TRU online has these:

I got two of those blind boxes at the San Diego comic con maybe 2 years ago. Great Quality. I got a Prime Mini bust and a Frenzy pack. If I see these in stores I will pick a few more and hope for the best.

Damn you people. I just got the seasons on DVD for Xmas so I checked this thread and started reading about the new toys.

Well I was a huge Jetfire fan so I checked a few stores and found one of the new ones. I also grabbed: Starscream, Rodimus Prime, Optimus Prime, and Mirage. More money (in addition to my VG habit) that I didn't need to spend!

Target has dropped their Xmas toy clearance to 75% off. Happened yesterday or today.

There hasn't been much in the way of Transformers on clearance, but it is still possible to get some great deals:

Primus (found 2 of them today) $12.18
Star Wars Transformers Millenium Falcon $8.74
Transmetal Rattrap 10th Anniversary $3.74
And kdunn77 reports in the Target Clearance thread that he found 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime for $17.48

You'll need a bit of luck, as things are going fast and some Targets are already cleaned out. Also, while these are clearance items, they can occasionally be found mis-stocked in the regular Transformers area.

I hope that the figure being delayed is the case rather than our orders being canceled. I do remember reading something one of my emails about them canceling the preorder if they can't fulfill it but maybe they just haven't gotten them yet.

Man, all these new toys look really cool (not the movie ones, they're total shit IMO). I really wanna pick up ton of those alternators and classic series figures.

Was in Wal-Mart today. They restocked their Alternators.

They had 4: Optimus Prime (the pickup truck), Skids (the Scion xB), Rollbar (the jeep -- recolor of Hound/Swindle), and Ricochet (recolor of Smokescreen/Silverstreak).

Of these, Skids is my favorite, even if you hate the Scion it's based on. Then it's Optimus Prime. Then the others, which are recolors of the early Alternators.

If you don't have Hound, then Rollbar might be a good choice. It's a very good Transformer...just not so good the third time round.

Okay, I goofed. I picked up Alternators Meister in Target's post-holiday clearance.

I already have Meister -- I got confused because I had not picked up Camshaft and they're both white cars.

Very nice car, and the robot is very obviously Jazz, but had to be renamed for trademark reasons. This is the same model as Shockblast -- a Mazda RX-8 -- but white instead of purple and without the hand-laser.

Paid $13.98 + tax, will sell for $18 shipped or trade for like amount. See my trade thread here. Please do not reply to this thread. PM me. Thanks.

Hey, found these images while searching. Some random Transforming lego...things:

Optimus Prime
http://members9.tsuk...hin/BJPM_05.htm

Gao Gai Gar
http://members9.tsuk...in/DIA_D05.html

Thought I'd share em here.

Also, if anyone could find me a Camshaft (or Mirage for that matter) alternator, I'd really appreciate it. My local stores only have assloads of Skids.

God I miss Japan. I would buy up all this if I could. Too bad we can't get a masterpiece Megatron here, only lame ass glow in the dark laser gun Megatron and tank Megatron.

Wow, that Megatron figure freaking owns. I missed out on the re-issue a few years back when it cost 80 bucks. But now that I have more money thanks to working I may have to pick that megatron up.

Holy sh!t. I was holding off on the Starscream, but I'll buy this one the second it comes out. Very nice.

From what I heard, you might not even be able to import it because it looks like a realistic gun and customs won't allow it. It does look so bad ass though :drool:

You may have problems finding it from a "legit" seller but I'm sure I can pick one up at this Years San Diego Comic Con or the local comic show by my house.

I just checked out ebay. They have them up for pre-order now......generally going for ~$120 including shipping from overseas. Given what LinkinPrime said about customs, though, I'll probably wait a little to see if I can get a U.S. seller.

I'm still waiting for a relatively good price on the masterpiece Starscream. If any of you guys can point me towards one, I'd appreciate it.

I just got an order status update e-mail from Toys 'r' Us that says Soundwave is in stock.

Hopefully they ship it this week.

Kinda pricey. It's cool that Soundwave is functional in a way.

BigBadToystore.com has them up for preorder. 99 bucks plus shipping. They are supposedly making custom orange caps that go over the end of the gun (which I should think would be easily removed once in your hands) in order to get them past customs.

I'm still holding out hope that MP Starscream will come stateside after the ferver of the movie (in anime colors, not the ass greenish color Japan got), but since I know Megs will never come out, I preordered him right away.

Oh, and Transformers....shoes?

Anyone else get their Soundwave today? Looks awesome, but I'm trying to decide to open it or not. My old G1 soundwave is kinda busted, so this is its replacement.

To anyone who got their soundwave how easy is it to remove from the box and then put it back ?

I gave in. It's really easy. A few pieces of tape that can be cut and he's out. No twist ties or any of that crap. Just a form fitting plastic bubble, so to put it all back, just lay the parts back how they were and close it up, it stays. Also, surprisingly, some stickers are allready applied, but there is a copy of the Japanese sticker sheet as well, but no diagram for it. It's easy enough to look at pics and see where they go though.
