Wonder if they count towards that buy-one-deluxe-get-one-half-off promo TRU's running now.

I would cancel my BBTS preorder but I got a 1.5 box so I could get Cliffjumper. Somehow I suspect that while finding Prime toys in a TRU store will be difficult, finding one somewhat short-packed toy in a refresh case will be next to impossible. I guess if they put him online I could pick him up, but not sure it would be worth it. If I can sell my extra deluxes on Ebay for a decent amount, I can get a better-than retail price:

Deluxe 1.5 case after shipping estimate: 109.49
Sell:
BB 14.99
BB 14.99
SS 16.99
CJ 20.99
Cost of remaining figures: 41.53 = $10.38/figure for 4 deluxes. Better than TRU prices or TRU.com prices if shipping was free, and that's if they even had Cliffy available.

Voyagers aren't quite as attractive but again, I anticipate Bulkhead may be tough to come by:
Voyager case after shipping estimate: 104.49
Prime 25
Prime 25
Cost of remaining figures: 54.49 = $27.25 per figure. TRU price is usually $19.99 and right now Voyagers are on sale for $15 on the website.

Are they exclusive, or is this just the first place they've shown up?

Either way, looks like I'm making a TRU run tomorrow!

They've been out in Toronto a couple of days now. Ironically, your BBTS orders were probably a good idea. I finally went down to my local TRU today, and aside from the Entertainment Pack, all they had were like 10+ bumblebees. All the other deluxes were already gone.

edit: yes, a joke, and I seriously thought BBTS was out of Texas.

I'm sticking with my pre-orders for now. There's exactly one Toys R Us within regular driving distance of where I live and it's a mini-sized store in one of those shopping mall center things. Not exactly somewhere that's going to have a huge selection of stuff.

That, and I'm short of money at this time, so having it reserved for later gives me the chance to scrape together what I need.

$16 for Deluxe. Forty something for the Entertainment Pack.

$44 and change, in Canadian dollars for the Entertainment pack. I actually don't recall the deluxe prices, but NightViper is probably right. I had intended to get the Entertainment Pack until I noticed that price. For some reason I thought it'd be cheaper. Maybe it's the DVD that I don't actually want.

Glad for this--I was looking pretty hard at picking up a deluxe 1.5 case from EE. Woulda only had to offload a Starscream and a Cliffjumper...

...yes, all three Bumblebees would stay.

Must be loud as hell if Texans can hear it.

(What with BBTS being here in Wisconsin at all.)

More likely, it's the three kids. They're the anomaly compared to other Entertainment Packs.

Keeping my preorder too. I've got a new baby, so while some careful budgeting means I can afford the toys without guilt, no amount of time management will allow me to run back and forth to TRU.

None at my local TRU and the lady behind the customer service desk checked the closest TRUs and nope, none nearby.

So I just ordered my Arcee at TRU.com. HOPEFULLY Starscream will still be in-stock next week before Black Friday...

I'll be keeping my BBTS preorder for Starscream, Bee, Arcee, and CJ, as well...the closest TRU is about 45 minutes away, and since they'll be added to my pile of loot at BBTS, it'll end up being around the same price as TRU.com considering shipping, tax, etc.

Odd. Still, it's a TRU that's only 40 minutes out east from me, right next to Kira Kira, so at least we know they're showing up nearby!

I actually thought BBTS was in Texas. Everytime I've ordered from them, that's where my packages have come from.

Found them at a TRU in Rockaway, NJ yesterday afternoon. Employee said there were 8 on the floor (I only saw 5), nothing in back. Grabbed to Bees, Arcee, and Screamer. No voyagers or entertainment pack. I almost missed them, on a lone pegs amongst the DOTM and Generations figs!

And I must say, Bumblebee is AWESOME.
