The Topic Title says it all!

Is he even released in U.S. stores yet?!

Supposedly, yes. I don't know if he just hasn't reached stores yet, but I just hope he actually gets released...

Your best bet is to buy one off ebay for about double the price. It's not likely to get a restock at any store or any online retailer. It will probably jump up to mythic prices like the rare late releases from Trap Team. Pretty much it's doing exactly what I had expected. There are lots of scalpers out there that buys up late release toys to flip like this. His vehicle is likely to do the same thing as well.

There are some on Amazon UK for RRP if that's an option for you. They do offer international shipping and will get a restock.

smilie wasn't even released here in the first place (well, except for his Easter Buggy version), meaning that eBay is pretty much my only option (or would've been if I hadn't picked up Eggcited). Still, I knew he'd be the hardest one to find in retail anywhere in the world. smilie

Did they remove Thrillipede from TRU's website?

Also, the ebay listings for $29 are not double the price. It would cost about $21 to order Thrills from TRU right now if they had any.

I got him from toysrus but i guess i should start checking to see if they still have anymore.

Walmart and the gamestops hasn't been getting anything new since the release that came with Roller Brawl and by the looks of things won't see any change with them until imaginators.

They did remove Regular Thrillipede from TRU's website. He was up there from Pre-Order up until June 7th. Taken down after being out of stock a few days June 8th. I know as I was stalking the page in hopes of buying him through restock.

Not only is this frustrating, it's downright poor business. What would drive anyone to invest in something you are not able to purchase all the pieces? buy a chess set, oh, I'm sorry, you can't buy the Queen piece - and it's still price. Really?!? Way to keep loyalty.

I thought somewhere it was said TRU was getting him first and other places in June? Or did i dream that up?
Tigorus Emerald Sparx Gems: 3563
#16 Posted: 05:54:53 09/06/2016
Yeah this is kind of a mystery. Gamestop doesn't even have him in their database (the regular version). It's kind of bizarre that they would release him like this. If T.R.U. got him as an exclusive first they should have ensured stock to provide said exclusive....seems dumb.

At first I was annoyed by this too, because I wanted all drivers to match their car's paint jobs .
But the Easter version reminds me of cascarones, and I got him really cheap, so I've come to terms with it.

I've never been a fan of variants ( with a few exceptions like the Famicom ROB amiibo, which I actually prefer over the NES ROB ), so it does bug me that I haven't seen hide nor hair of Thrillipede or Buzz Wing ( tbh, I haven't even seen Eggcited Thrilipede. Don't WANT that version, but just thought I'd mention it ). Oddly, my Wal-Mart is the only store I have access to that got the sky & land racing packs smilie

He was pretty rare here @ Canada.

I already had the easter one, but, I wanted the original.

Technically speaking, I said "about double" and the MSRP is what people typically use as the number in matters such as this. TRU's $13.99 for example times two is about the current eBay price for this right now. Personally I would not doubt it going up to $50 by this time next month if there are no further releases to any stores. That's why $30ish right now is very fair as you probably won't find one for any cheaper.

I think he'll end up on the mythic level and will be much higher than an Echo or a Scratch NIP. Could end up being around the Spotlight and Blackout NIP level, but I feel closer to the current Dark and Light Element Expansion Pack NIP price levels are more realistic. He's released so late that no one even cares and it's doubtful many were made or shipped. Yet I sense he'll be in good demand by enough people that forgot to get one which will raise his price pretty high. His vehicle probably will end up at about half his price as I saw a lot of those at my TRU and it doesn't seem that popular.

Of course a random batch of a few hundred figures per store could ruin what I said, but it's not very likely he'll end up like that and investment wise he's a pretty safe bet if you can find one for under $30. A certain buy if you were to able find one on the shelf on the next couple weeks at Gamestop. Gamestop is the only other seller likely to get one (and they will probably only get one or two per location), as Target/Best Buy/Walmart isn't very likely at all to get any at their B&M retail locations at this late date.

Just saying as a toy dealer of some 25 years experience here. I know that the situation sucks and all that, but that's how these things are. They really shouldn't have pushed him off into a late wave like this. In fact as there were so few figures this year, they should have only had 3 or 4 waves. I really question their reasoning as to why they done a wave for basically one figure and his vehicle, as it doesn't make any sense to me.

That reminds me, we never did get a single release Stealth Elf as promised, did we? I was expecting one to go with the Thrillipede release for my NIP waifu collection. She'd be in a similar short supply situation because no one would really want one, other than the hardcore collectors and she's end up being a little pricey as well, like a normal packaged Punk Shock (vs. a non-Easter one).

there was only 20 figures to buy this year, and if this is what happening. the trap team traps was just the beginning... i fear it might get worse with the imaginators that have over 40 items to buy.

I was just referring to the minimum price everyone had to pay to order from TRU, since he hasn't really hit the shelf yet.

The only image I saw for a Stealth Elf single was for "Sure Shot Stealth Elf" and the artwork on the package was reversed to go with the quick photoshop job. I think it might have been marketing speculation.

Quoting my thoughts from another topic:

Quote: Chompy-King257
I would just order the dang thing on the TRU website - that is, if it was there. It's not on Amazon, either. I'm calling my Toys R Us everyday. If he's not out by July, I'm ordering from online.

I did get him at toysrus and all but it's pretty bad for the parents and worse then the traps situation because I know Thrillipede was actually probably the most wanted supercharger. But unlike every other character nobody could just walk into any store and buy him.
But i feel with the traps you didn't need to buy a different style for it to work for it's purpose.
TFB need to rethink now how they can put the waves out better so something like Thrillapede and the Yawn Traps don't happen again.

I ordered one from EBay for $28.
This is the second strike against Activision. First, they drop the ball by not releasing the Yawn traps in the US. Now, the "Thrillipede Incident".
I'm already bummed Disney pulled the plug for Infinity, especially with some of the stuff that has been leaked, such as concept 3d image for the Doctor Strange figure and, just recently revealed, a concept 3D image for a Spider-Gwen figure. Yes, that's right. Google or Bing it.
