What the fuck?

Bad news...

Why do I get this feeling that that 30-day policy is going to go into effect...?
GinRai: I got the sae e-mail. I don't have a very good feeling about this. The thing that sucks is that i didn't bother to hunt one down locally because my order went through the day I made it over a month ago...ugh...

Sanjeev: I do believe you are right...
I don't know that the issues are related, but I read a lot of reports on a TF forum today of TRUs with other prices on MP-10. $119 & $149 depending on the area.

Thank you
Sanjeev (Admin)
The cynical bastard (read: realist) in me says these events are absolutely related. :(
Apparently my local TRU had them for about 6 hours at a price of $129.99. I are sad panda. If anyone manages to find a live lead on these at proper retail, I would be extremely grateful for the assistance. I will keep prowling here, but I am growing less confidant in a successful conclusion to my mission of owning a $99 MP Optimus Prime.

Wow, I didn't think there would be this much trouble with these. I've seen only two of them, and I bought one. I should have grabbed the second and offered it up. Sorry guys! If I see more, I will do this.

More serious than thou
Okay the plot thinkens...I just got a ship notification on this guy...weird...

Odd..looks like I saved $20 by ordering early...Yea for me....
Sanjeev (Admin)
That's good news for the early birds...hope you get yours, Jeremy...

I'm sure the $20 price hike will go over well with Transfans! :P

They're already sold out. What the hell. Looks like I can still get one for store pickup in Leominster and pick it up on my way to Worcester on Saturday. The things I'll do for Optimus.

Tracking numbers are usually pretty real!
I GOT MY OPTIMUS! AT LAST! Also I can't get his boobs to close. HELP!

Update: I figured it out. Screws in the chest dealies were loose. I tightened them. Also his Matrix of Leadership was in backwards. I flipped it around. now it closes perfectly. YAY!

I picked up my Prime from TRU last weekend. The in-store pickup process was actually incredibly easy. I ended up paying $130 total with tax and I'm pretty happy with him, but $99 would certainly have been more attractive. He's a great toy, tho, and I love the slavish attention to detail on the trailer even if I'll rarely display it. The metal feet do a nice job of balancing the figure, but the ankles on mine seem to be a little loose.
