    I just called to check on my backorder for Alternators Optimus Prime after checking the link for the item and seeing that it is back in stock. I also checked the link for Mirage and he is in stock to. Now is a great time for those that do not have either to get them. They may sell quick and with some stores no longer carrying Alternators this could be the best bet for some of you. Good luck.

    you sir, are a godsend. I cannot tell you how glad I am that I checked the boards before going to bed. 1 mirage for me, one for a friend who's a ford nut, and a prime to turn into hoist. sweet!!!

    FINALLY was able to get a Prime, and shipping is less than what I would have paid for gas to continue searching local stores, I'm sure! Thanks!

    Fucking FINALLY.

    I found Mirage and Camshaft once and bought them both. Other than that, at EVERY Walmart and Target I frequent, I have seen a lone leftover Meister taunting me. $29 shipped? Fine. Ordered. Done.

    Now..about that Nemesis Prime...

    As of 11PM PST there are 9 Primes and 11 Mirage in stock. Used the update quantity button to check how many are available for purchase. Did this out of curiosity. Don't need any as I already have them.

    I was lucky enough to buy both a while ago at a local Target.

    Folks: if you can only afford one of these two at this time, get Mirage. Really. He's that much cooler. Unless you're the sort who'd rather get one of each mold and wait until the Rodimus recolor is released....

    Yippie dippie do!

    Unless I run into a Nemesis Prime fiasco, I should FINALLY have a Mirage on the way now. I'd presume Wal-Mart has a bit more streamlined inventory system than HTS - at least I'd hope so.

    Slag! I know I should have ordered that last night, but the extra $7 for shipping made me want to check my local stores one more time first. No Mirage. But I did find Op and Camshaft at Target so I got them instead. Sigh, I know Mirage will show up eventually. Maybe I'll find him by Christmas.

    Yeah, that's what I said too..paying 150% for a $20 toy didn't seem fair to me, so that's why I didn't order a Mirage last night, when they had him in stock.

    Now, I wish I had. :-/

    Yo, thefrozenred, we talked a while back and I'm not too far from you. We see Mirages all the time now up here and I just sold my last one to a fellow board member, but you can be next if you wish. PM me and lmk!

    Some of that was tax. I miss the days when most things online weren't taxed and the cheapest shipping tended to be a little more than you would have paid in tax had you found it at retail anyway.

    And I know I've burned more than 2-3 gallons ($6-9) in gas looking for the fucker. If I could have bought/ordered him at that price 2-3 weeks ago, it would have all canceled out. Even so, that was the only thing I was still presently looking for. No more trips to WM/gas wasted until the latest ML or SW wave hits...

    ..which is probably in 4..3..2.. :redface2:

    Just got a shipping confirmation on my Prime. Can't wait to get him. I'm really doubting I'll see any new Alts on the shelves around here. This wave is turning out to be like the wave with Wheeljack and Decepticharge. I never saw them either. I scored a Mirage on ebay last night for the same total price as the Prime I got from wallymart.com. Now I need a Camshaft along with Wheeljack and Decepticharge.
