    I was just woundering, .....Is anyone still having issues finding Alt. Optimus Prime? I ask because As far as this mold goes I have (in my collection) Alt. Prime, Nem. Prime, and Binaltech Convoy. Plus 3 spare Alt Primes still in there boxes I'm going to use for Customs. Am I just lucky??

    They are hard to find, still. It's Camshaft I think I'm never going to see.

    They're at Argos stores everywhere in the UK, which makes up a little for the fact that about two thirds of the line have never made it here.

    My Wal-Mart just got a new Prime & Sunstreaker. I have only seen one Camshaft to date. I didn't get him and I wish I would've.

    In the last month, saturation went from ultra scarce to abundant... at least for Meister, Tracks, Prime and Mirage. It's really sad, after all this they are warming shelves at Targets and Walmarts. TRU doesn't have a single Alt however. TRU sucks a lot however. Camshaft, Rollbar and Ricochet are and have been next to nonexistant.

    I've only seen him three times. Once each at the two Targets in town, and once at the one Wal-Mart that still carries Alts. He's been stocked before each of those sightings, but I got there too late to find him each time.

    I have seen Prime once a week for the last month. I find more Mirages than I do Primes. Also because he is "rare," a few scalpers have picked up more than two or three at a time. I had asked some of the associates at Walmart after seeing a lot of Meister and Tracks being stocked up and they would say someone comes in really early to buy all the Primes and Mirages.

    well at least prime and mirage have hit sturation. around me they are still being picked up as soon as they hit the shelves or if they are even hitting shelves still. My local walmart got two shipments of the camshaft, mirage, prime and meister wave. The 1st one i got all of them, then i saw them again about a week ago. Same with the target, they got two shipments. THe other walmart has go NO new alts since the december wave or skids, sunny, rico and rollie. Nuts huh.

    Does that mean Camshaft is making its way back to circulation? I found 2 when he was originally released. None since then.

    I've never seen Alt. Prime in a store here. I got mine through BBTS.
