    I have been all over my city when each store stocks, and no store here in Oklahoma City, which never takes this long, has ever gotten in Human Alliance Mudflap.

    Did Hasbro pull a stupid move and cancel the toys release?

    Is the toy even out yet?

    You have a better chance of winning the lottery after you were struck by lightning swimming with the Loch Ness monster. You have a better chance of being able to pick fly shit out of pepper wearing boxing gloves. Good luck finding whatisface though!:D

    It's not cancelled. Quite a few people have them already. The thing is, it's the last item in the ROTF line before it relaunches as TF 2010. As such, the retailers aren't exactly ordering them by the dozen because it's the tail end of the line. Because they're tail end stuff, Hasbro anticipates this move and as such produces these figures in smaller numbers than the initial wave stuff, which is likely why it's out of stock on HTS. Blame your local Walmart, not Hasbro.

    Seriously though, did they cancel the toy, or has it even officially come out yet?

    Am I checking too early for it?

    It's been out for months now, I think. The problem is it's the last wave of the ROTF HA toyline, and many stores don't want to buy more of products they're trying to clearance off or clear off of the shelves.

    Still, it never hurts to look. Best bet might be to buy it online.

    Will it be under The Hunt for Decepticons? I don't care if it's ROTF or whatever they want to call it.

    I don't think you're gonna see him in stores, but I think you should keep checking online sources.

    I would be shocked if the price for this guy stayed high. Because, FFS, rare or not, it's still Mudflap.

    There's still HA figures coming out under the HFTD line. So I wouldn't be surprised if he shows up in HFTD packaging. I saw ONE at TRU up here in Canada. Passed on it cause Wal Mart usually has HAs MUCH cheaper than TRU and I figured he'd show up there. Saw a couple Barricades at Wal Mart but passed on them at the time. All I've seen since then are more Bumblebee's and Skids. But with HA Jazz still on it's way, I'm sure we'll see more of them hit shelves.

    Same for me...never saw a single one anywhere withing a two hour driving radius of me. (Prolly about 25 different stores). Nothing, nada, zero. Everyone seems to be trying to clear out their stock of skids around here. I'm hoping he'll be re-released in the HFTD line, but I think jazz is shipping in a case with another Bumblebee re-release. As others have said, it's just the end of the line timing thing. It sucks, but that happens sometimes.

    I've never seen one in a store (though I don't collect them either, so I'm not really hunting per se).

    Keep at it, if you want it, you're gonna have to hunt for it.

    If you cant find it, you can either wait or search for it in places you don't normally look at. In a way, hunting the toys you want is fun =P

    Why would that guy on that Ebay link, basically sell the toy for a dollar less than retail, with 12 dollars shipping?

    How is he making a profit? Why would this dude sell his toys on Ebay at cost, and either break even, or take a small loss?

    Is he a scam?

    That was my thought as well. Altough he is making a little on the shipping.
