    First of all, DANG IT! :cmad:

    I should have known that these two (Bumblebee & StarScream) would be hard to find, but JEEZE! I've been to Wal-Marts all over the city and nothing! :(

    But of course, everyone's got the fugly copper SS that was made b/f the actual character concept was realized :whatever: ...no thanks. :down

    And Bumblebee, he's even MORE elusive! Of course, there's a BAZILLION tanks (WAY TOO SMALL IMO), and Hasbro obviously isn't fooling anyone when it comes to the toys that weren't in the movie: "Wreckage", "the Red Sportscar", yeaaaaah riiiiiight :huh: :whatever:.

    So, is anyone else having a rediculously hard time locating a specific model?

    Which versions of BB and Starscream are you looking for? The newer versions or the older ones.

    Try other stores instead of just WM. We have plenty of both at my TRU.

    I went to TRU on my lunch break yesterday, and they have LESS than Wal-Mart AND Target combined (if that makes sense :huh:)

    I'm looking for the $20 Voyager Starscream, and the $10 Bumblebee that's the next size below that. I've looked EVERYWHERE in the city! Plus, I even looked at Target's & TRU's websites. They don't even have those listed there anymore!?

    Well if you wait until this weekend on July 14th the 08 Camaro version of BB will be released or its supposed to be and it should be in good supply. If your looking for the 74 version of BB you screwed because I hear they stopped production on him and he wont be released in future waves. So either keep looking behind all deluxes pallets for him or just get the 08 version. Ask you nearest WM or TRU when they restock and just try to get there early.

    SS Shouldnt be that hard to find. He will be released as a repaint Target exclusive with a new head and maybe the old version will be restocked in your area soon. Just keep looking, find out your areas shipping schedules or just wait for the new versions. :ninja:

    [MachoMan] Oooh yEEEAAahhhh! [/MachoMan] My throat has been starting to bother me again for about a day and a half, so I took a 30 minute break at work this morning to go buy some Airborne & Ricola at Wal-Mart...

    It was PORING rain and I dashed in with enthusiasm, smartly heading to the toy section before the medicine area (boring!)...Well I went straight to the Transformers and they had a FULL STOCK and brand new toys!!! And at least FIVE Bumblebees!! :wow: :o WHA-WHOO!

    So I bought a Bumblebee and a Jazz for the collection!! :up: How sweet is that!? Now all I need is the Voyager Starscream! :)

    I just saw, like, 3 Voyager Starscreams in KB Toys. Granted, they were $25, but it's still not that much...considering how quickly they're selling out.

    Good thing I got mine when I had the chance. All that's left at Wal-Mart now is like a million bonecrushers and swindles, 5 leader Megatrons, and maybe four Ratchets and Ironhides (two each). I seriously don't know when the next shipment is going to arrive, but it's becoming rather apparent that Bonecrusher is not a very popular figure, most likely because he's too small.

    I havent had much trouble finding anyone except 08 Bumblebee. I got extremely lucky and called a target at 8 on the dot and had one held for me yesterday. Starscream is stocked plentiful here in PA

    That Ironhide TF is the hidden gym of this entire series! Not only is the detail AWESOME, but the transformation is among the best!! :up:

    Grab the Ironhide if you haven't yet! :ninja:

    Man, I better continue to keep my eyes pealed for said BB! Yesterday at Target, I noticed that they've released an entirely new wave of TF's with the "Movie Graphics" on the box (like the others), although every one of the new ones are TF's that didn't appear in the movie...."Oh, that Habro!" :whatever:

    But I haven't seen the 08' BB yet :(

    You should go back and get it! It's got a better transformation than SS, and it's as detailed as any on the line :up:

    I checked out this other Target hoping they'd have the Robo Vision Prime. Unfortunately they didn't but they had EVERYTHING except Megatron, either Prime, and the 77 Bumblebee. They had the new ones (08 Bumblebee, movie-designed Arcee, and Dreadwing).

    I picked up Blackout, Ironhide, Ratchet, Starscream, Brawl, 08 Bumblebee, and Bonecrusher.

    I'm only getting the ones in the movie except Megatron and Scorponok. Megatron is a huge pain in the ass to find and I've never been crazy about him. Scorponok just does not appeal to me at all.

    Now all I need is the Robo vision Prime and I'm finished.

    I just opened Ironhide and his transformation is probably one of the worst I have encountered in a Transformer in some time. I can't get the pegs on his crotch to fit into the slots one his arms so his arms can fit underneath cleanly.
