I recently picked up 3rd party KFC's Crash Hog & Dumpyard (Masterpiece Wreck-Gar and Junkyard and decided they deserved a full review. I'm extremely impressed with both figures!   Full review an

A waste in the MP line from Hasbro they could of done some other ones like Inferno or Ultra Magnus or even the Cone Head brothers.

When I found Prime I went early and thought omg I'm a half hour early so I said "F" it I will go and see if for some reason they changed the time from 10 to an earlier time..I hit the door noticing it was 9:30 the store now opens and went on in

 

There was no one around and that sucker sat there ripe for picking :P

Hey guys, I read that going forward all MP will be pretty much be in scale with MP-10 Optimus, is the Rodimus MP-09 in scale with MP-10?

 

Just asking coz I'm looking at buying the TRU MP Rodimus from a friend.

I seen reviews on YouTube that shows they are in scale...

 

 

Thanks for the info. Don't remember the price of it when it first came out last year at TRU, but is $70 a fair price for it? its not MIB my friend said he probably transformed it a couple of times and remained in bot mode since.

Go to the 32:00 mark... He also compares Prime to Thundercracker and Grimlock...

 

MISB Rodimus goes for about $100 now so I would say that $60-$70 would be fair for a complete loose Rodimus...

Lousy Skywarp ruined it for us. Walmart didn't want to get stuck with all those figures and passed on everything else after. Now we're stuck with TRU getting a couple of figs and no chance of restocks.

 

Yeah... Walmart thought they hit gold when Starscream was selling like crazy so they went overboard with Skywarp... I remember he was on clearance for $15...

That's why I am worried I will not find the MP Prime at my TRU.I can't get a straight answer.Is the MP prime a one time only buy or not?I have to know.Am i wasting my time going to TRU and them not carrying him anymore.

Hey, PlayItLoud. Make sure you inspect Rodimus carefully; the US release has a fairly common problem with the arm(s) breaking off at the shoulder due to a defect.

Nah, keep checking. Optimus Prime is the most popular TF character ever. There's no logical reason why they'd be stocking Thundercracker so plentifully and short change us with OP. No guarantees of course, but I think you'll be rewarded if you're patient.

just picked prime up today, and with the 30% off deal on all transformers here in canada, got him for $79.07, that includes the $9.10 in taxes!!

 

they only had 2 on the shelf!! the one i left behind had a scratch on his face plate, the one i grabbed had a scuff on his trailer but that might rub off!!

 

and the guy there said no sign of thundercracker yet...good thing i grabbed him from the states already!!

 

i love having 2 toys r us within an hour drive(one in the states, one in canada), 1 within a 20 minute drive, and tru-express within a 10 minute drive!!

there is even a 5th one an hour and a half away, but i never go there unless im heading up to Toronto...like this weekend!!

I never found Rodimus, and only found Grimlock once. I'm not surprised Thundercracker is sticking around longer because he's just another not-Starscream like Skywarp was.

Personally I wanted TC because he was the new jet mold that I didn't have... I would have passed on him otherwise...

The TRU near me has been consistently getting 2 MP Primes for 3 weeks now, but sadly I still didn't get one today since I came in around 930am today 3 peeps way ahead of me they told me they were there at 830a 2 of them got 2 that came today. Being a nice guy since the 20% coupon expires Monday I gave it to one of them. Also saw TF Generations Wheelie, Springer and Swerve but I pass since I want to stick to MP and Prime lines.

 

But before I left the store I saw the 2 managers that already knows me (how could they not I'm always there every week) and they know I've been trying to hunt MP Optimus so they track a store that has a lot in stock and they were able to do a phone order for me store was from another state and here's hoping I get it delivered next week, shipping was free. I just checked my acct and I had been charged by the out of state store for 106.99 if it works cool if not I trust the managers in our TRU to get me my money back.
