    Ebay seller milovenuci has at present 2x Thundercracker and a Jetfire listed, and he's located in Texas. I just emailed him to ask if they were purchased at retail.

    update: Just heard back, they were indeed a retail purchase.

    Prepares for the inevitable "It's not scalping!!" argument. But yeah, it sucks.

    How the hell would they kno what 's coming at the ned of the month, let alone past 5 days from now. The only people who have access to the truck manifests usually don't field calls and wouldn't waste their time to look up one item for a guest. Methinks they were bullshitting you.

    Slightly off topic, but I just took my Titanium Megatron out of the package (I swear the twist ties were made out of Titanium) and was wondering: Is the construction of all the transforming Titaniums this bad? I know pieces are meant to come off but... Plus I swear paint was chipping off as I was holding it.

    Don't get me wrong, the designs are incredible, but I'm not entirely convinced that this line was "meant to be".

    Dark_Magnus: That's far from true. I've gotten help in that department with Target several times. If they've not helped you, try again. Could be that abrasive attitude perhaps? ;) 

    Sepultron: They've corrected the problems with wave 1 (Megatron and Prime) and now wave 2 (Jetfire and Thundercracker) have ratcheting joints, etc.

    That's the first I've heard of the ratcheting joints. Where did you hear that from? Not that I'm doubting you, just curious.

    Thundercracker looks absolutely fantastic. I want him bad.

    Jetfire's so-so, but looks to be worth a purchase.

    Oddly enough, the one I really really want is Rodimus Prime. Something about that boxy vehicle mode into robot mode just is pure love to me.

    Oh and Scourge.
