Masterpiece Grimlock Sighted In Texas!
bwbm - Wednesday, August 04, 2010

Thanks to Lord Mega, we have learned that Masterpiece Grimlock has been sighted (and bought) at a Toys R Us in San Antonio, Texas! According to Lord Mega, a College Station, TX Toys R Us also has the figure on the shelf. We also asked our very own DragonX76 for confirmation and he said a scalper(!) grabbed all three that were in stock. The only thing left was the tag "TRA UNIVERSE GRIMLOCK $69.99." The big dino is out folks, go look! If you sight him, let us know!

I bought the last one of three at the Orange Park FL TRU. There was another, but someone was gunning for it as well. Apparently they only come in cases of three at a time.

Still 3 on the shelf from yesterday at TRU New Hartford, NY! $69.99 a little too steep for me right now!

I just bought one at the Irving, TX TRU yesterday, they had two on the shelves, so they should be popping up now all across the DFW area.

I called all the TRUs around here and apparently each store got 9. They all sold out at each location in the first hour and they have no idea when they'll get more.

I nabbed one at the Toys R Us in Baton Rouge, LA. There were two on the shelf. The cashier asked if they just came out because she sold three of them within the hour of her getting in to work. Not sure if it's the work of a scalper or fans in the area who lurk but don't post anywhere, but BR... read more

In a saddeningly timely turn of events, CNN Money has reported that Charles Lazarus, founder of ToysRUs, has passed away at the age of 94. Lazarus began the business that came to be known as ToysRUs in 1948, opening his first all-toy store in 1957 and staying with the company until 1994. TFormers expresses our deepest condolences Mr. Lazarus' friends and family.
On Facebook, XM Studios has posted a new teaser render for an upcoming licensed Megatron statue they're working on. The highly stylized take on G1 Megatron has all of the recognizable elements, though done in a style that's more like movie-meets-G1. Interestingly it's also called out as being "1/10 scale". But without an indication what they're basing the "real" height on, that doesn't offer much clarity toward the size that this statue will ultimately be. We've mirrored the teaser image below, click through and take a look!
Transformers At The Moon has posted the latest in their series of deleted audio and extended scenes from the original 1984 The Transformers cartoon series! This time, they've got over ten minutes' worth of dialogue from "Heavy Metal War," featuring the first appearance of the Constructicons. Keep reading to see the video along with a transcript of the dialogue.
The closure of ToysRUs provokes a lot of emotions - sadness, frustration at the circumstances, and in some a misguided sense of satisfaction stemming from their latter-day pricing habits. But at some point in our lives a great many of us were ToysRUs Kids. And so longtime Transformers fan and ASMzine proprietor Phil Zeman has created the site I Didn't Want to Grow Up, which is accepting submissions of your stories and reminiscences of visiting what was once the premiere source of action figures for children and collectors.

Few would guess the last piece to be reissued from the original Transformers Generation 1 series would be the music scores. Even though the original cartoons have been reissued, updated and restored multiple times. Fans that have been asking for copies of the Original Sound Tracks (OST) masters have finally gotten theirs, on vinyl of all things. IF, they were fast enough to buy one of the 2,000 copies that sold out in less than 10 minutes. The good news is a second pressing is in the works.
