Finally got lucky and snagged Cherno Alpha from TRU.com when he was in stock today, and by using that 20% off coupon included with their spring catalog it brought the price down to a more palatable $19.99. Happy to be done with the wave, although now that I've ordered them all online I'll probably see the lot this weekend at TRU. Would be fine with me, I would't mind an extra Cherno to open.

Weird stuff going on with this line at TRU's website...first they jacked up the price on all of them by about $3 each and then they took Cherno And Trespasser off completely. I'm sure they will re-appear at some point but I'm glad I got mine when I did, looking more and more doubtful these will show up in-store.

TRU.com is doing some crazy stuff for sure.  Some figures going for double what they should - holo chair suit engineer from Prometheus.  And then not listing all the figures from certain lines - ie 1 out of the 3 new Mogwai figures

Yeah, i noticed that random Holo Chair Engineer too, weird as they never sold that in any of their retail stores. (Nor to my knowledge did the ever sell the 18" Gypsy Danger in stores)

I'm just glad I ordered this stuff online...wonder if NECA will comment about this at some point via Twitter.

Some interesting news to share about this line...I had talked to the manager of our local TRU about these recently and when I walked into the store yesterday he saw me and told me they had a case in the back, but they weren't supposed to put them out for some reason. I had him check the computer and apparently these were marked to be put out by a non-TRU rep (??). I guess apparently they aren't always allowed to stock their own stuff?

Anyway, after a few minutes he confirmed they rang up fine and there was no technical contraint to selling them, so I walked out with a brand new Cherno Alpha.  ;D

Best part was I had a $5 Rewards coupon that was about to expire so I got it for $17. First figure I have ever opened from this line (this is an extra, still have a boxed one too) and it is really nice. Makes a hell of a paperweight!
