Saw the TRU APC yesterday.  Holding out for the regular version with Gorman later this week, but it was cool seeing it in person!

Putting out a request if anyone sees the TRU version in the wild. I'd really like one, please and thank you. Will pay cost plus shipping.

I'll see what I can do for you. :)

I would very much appreciate that. My locals stores have been hit or miss on Minimates lately and keep moving them around the store. Sometimes they are in the "specialty" area, sometimes on endcaps, sometimes with the other same brand toys, sometimes in the game section. Its weird. Also I don't think they got the Queen/Power Loader sets so I'm not holding my breath that they'll get the APC or the Space Jockey.

Found the APC today in PA. Not sure why TRU is only charging $14.99 for it, but I'll gladly take it. Definitely the best minimates vehicle made so far.

Can you tell if the Ripley is any different from the main line release?

New Ripley on the left.

Walked into a store and picked this up, today - very cool toy! The turret near the front rotates, and the turret on top can be removed and stuck on the back. All the seats can be removed, and the back interior gun rack panel can also removed.

The APC showed up in Northern California today - I too was a little floored by the $14.99 price given that specialty is 2x that.

has anyone figured out how the pulse rifle holder in the back of the APC works?

It comes out, you need to work lifting it out. then just pop in rifles and barrels for big guns. you might need to take out two back seats.

Here two pics I snapped of the specialty store APC with the exclusive Lt, Gorman minimate. Gorman comes with 2 heads. One with bandages and one without. Unfortunately, both heads have the exact same facial expression. As a matter of fact, it's the same facial expression as the TRU dress uniform Lt.Gorman. *sigh*

Considering Gorman only had 2 expressions the whole movie (trying to be tough and trying not to piss his pants) I think they did a pretty good job. Though having an eyes closed option on the bandaged head would be nice (same with sleeping Hicks). If only we knew someone that made custom stickers...

They're $14.99 at my local TRU.  That seems correct if you think back to the pricing of the Back To The Future Cars, Halo set, and Munsters vehicle set.

The other vehicles were 15 at comic shops and tru, the apc is the same size package as the different enterprises which were 30, tru really just offered it for a great discount.

May I second the question of why TRU APCS are half price? 

Volume, volume, volume!

 

I'm guessing TRU ordered a lot more APCs than Diamond made for specialty shops.
