My TRU put out a couple cases today of this big lug and they rang up as PROMO $14.99 at the register.  No discount for me, but perhaps he will in fact be a gift with purchase in the coming weeks??  Definitely worth the $15 bones, but I'd dig a few more if he's going to be part of a promo.

Found one today and despite not really buying CW figures, I picked it up.

Picked up a MIB one today, I really think they did a great job with this figure.

I'm really surprised that they churned out a character from the Republic Heroes video game so quickly. It's a fun game, and he's a pretty formidable final "boss", so it's neat that Hasbro zeroed in on making this big guy.

Gonna hold off until the promo starts and see if I can score my opener as a "free gift with purchase"...

Do we know definitively that he will be part of a promo, Pete?

starting to sound like it to me.  If you like him buy him now and hold on to the receipt.   ;D

None of the TRU's within 100 miles of here have gotten any of these yet.  ???

And the local stores are down to getting only 1 truck a week now on Tuesdays.

I want at least 2 of these MoFo's...BADLY.

He rings up as "Promo" at the register, so that was what I was going on to assume that he's part of a promo.

You know what they say about assuming things though....

When what I can see this guy is a huge peg warmer. I haven't seen one sell yet at my local TRU. Maybe because he is not near the other figures and no one knows who he is.

Yeah, I'm hoping they have a promo coming to move him.

He sold through pretty well at my TRU.  0 left.  I still had no idea who he was when I bought him though.  duh...

He's sorta sitting here too.  I think the price is a bit much myself, regardless of the figure's size.  Our area though, he's not hard to get ahold of at any TRU I've been to.  :-\

My TRU is still sold out of this guy since I originally found him back in July.  Will he ever be a freebie?  Still confused as to why he rang up as PROMO....Hopefully the CW Nikto dude will at least be "free"

Both TRU close to my house got in at least 20 each of these back in July, and both sold out within a week.  Haven't seen any sign of him since.

In case anyone was still holding out on this big guy, Toy R Us has him online for $9.98 as part of a day after Xmas sale...

Damn, they need to take a page from the Deep-Discount practices of Target or Walmart, that's more or less what I paid for my opener a few months ago just using Rewards.

It's a great figure, but they need to get more agressive if they really want to blow these out.
