This iS TRU making more mistakes. When the new line came out they kept calling Pre Vizsla Darth Vader n such. I never order because I didnt know if it would get the pictured item or the listed one.

They are taking the images wholesale from Hasbro and applying the SKUs that are part of the file names, but many are being mixed up by TRU's site organizers and the pics get put with the wrong listings. If you order something based on a picture that doesn't match the description and SKU and title, you will NEVER get what's in the picture because it's not part of the ordering scheme, it's just numbers and data to the fulfillment people at the warehouse.

I wonder if that would qualify as reason for a return without having to pay for shipping?

I'm pretty sure for $10.99 they will send you the exclusive figure......$10.99 seems too cheap for the transformer...they usually run $14.99-$19.99http://www.tfw2005.com/transformers-news/attach/7/3/8/6/3/1405E92D19B9F369109D70EBE7D6E632_1280983401.jpg

Not for a Deluxe. Those usually run in the $10-$12 range, depending on the store. Yeah, I know the name "Deluxe" seems to indicate something much bigger, but Hasbro's for some reason of the mind that "Voyager" is bigger than "Deluxe," and "Legends" are the smallest of all. I don't try to figure it out.

You're right--I saw "Deluxe" and assumed it was a regular Transformer in that size class. This is a different line. Not sure why a Transformer would be $10 more when HE DOESN'T TRANSFORM!

hasbro is going in another direction with transformers..my 5 year old son loves transformers and he has ALL of the deluxe ones and many more....the only one he loves to play with are the RPMs and the other one's that don't transform:cry::cry:

Of course, you could just walk it into any TRU for the return, but I think it might be store credit-only that way, and you'd still have to eat the original shipping.

That is a Transformers RPMs lights & sounds Bumblebee from 6 months ago in new packaging, it was $9.99 at Target then and still is. It doesn't transform into a robot, it's just a chunky toddler's toy, the line went a name change is all. Read the description, SKU, or any other corresponding data on the order page and you'll see quite clearly that you'll be getting Transformers Speed Stars Lights & Sounds Bumblebee.

Hasbro's website does list the MSRP as $19.99. Did they mark it up when they repackaged it?

I don't think it's a markup...I saw this item today and it's HUGE!!!! a big form of the previously released one....so the item listed might be the FIGURE.....target also had this specific transformer for $19.99

As for them confirming Nikto, I really don't see how they could confirm that, but I guess we'll start finding out soon.

my friend ordered it while listing said trasformers, the NEXT day he received 2 niktos, i went to order it later the same day as he did, but it wouldnt let me put an in my cart. then few minutes later..."out of stock". so 3 days or so later, it was corrected to say "nikto" instead of transformers, then few hrs later, it was in stock. i ordered mine then and still am waiting for shipping notice despite the delivery eta range started today:(
