    Yes, finally, after waiting all this time to see one at retail in my area I finally scored Alt Prime.

    I was playing at a casino in a nearby town that has a Super Wal-Mart that has a distribution center in the same town. On a hunch I stopped in before the gig and sure enough they had one Alt Prime. I could hardly believe it.

    It was getting ridiculous. Heck I scored Alt Nemesis Prime from San Diego before I got Alt Prime.

    Better late then never I guess....

    Thanks Hasbro. Or thank Wal-Mart distribution.

    Whatever.

    I've heard it's gotten better lately in some places, but distribution of the last few alts have definitely been sparse where I live. I have seen exactly one Optimus Prime, one Meister, one Camshaft, and zero Mirage in stores over a period of months. (managed to order Mirage online)

    Congrats! I just found him a couple days ago along with Mirage at a local Target. I was so happy when I found both of them. Great stuff.

    Around here I still haven't seen Prime, but Mirage has been at every Target I check.
    Luckily I found my Prime in Texas back in August.

    Ha, that's funny. Here I am seeing alt prime all the time, and never bothering to buy it, yet it was mirage that I finally recently manged to score off Ebay because I've seen none on the shelves. :D

    Congrats, man! Look in the bright side - better late than never! But I'm kind of suprised that TF distribution is that irregular in the States!

    Yeah they had one Mirgae too but I passed on it. I'm not really sure why but I did. I guess I was so pumped about finding Prime that I was blinded to everything else.

    I've only seen Prime and Mirage once, and I bought them. Never seen a Camshaft. Managed to order him from HTS.

    After scoring a alt Prime and alt Mirage for my brother I've seen zero of either, while 629373687 of Meister and Tracks clogged the aisles of stores I've visited. And no Camshaft ever. I am hoping that Mirage can show up soon so I can add it to my collection. Really hate to have to go Ebay.
