    I have seen all but the magnus/skywarp two pack and jetfire. I only want jetfire. I don't know if he is short packed, but he is very popular so that may be why we can't find him.

    Ebay:
    Try giving them the UPC #:

    You can print this out, take it to Wal-Mart, Target, TRU, or another store that carries TFs and have them scan the UPC code to see if they have any in stock. It's not a sure thing, but it can at least point you and the store employees in the right direction.

    Also, try going to the stores mid-week after Monday or first thing on Saturday morning.

    Good luck!

    I saw one last week at my local Wal-Mart, but i left it as Classics isn't my thing. I went back the next day and it was gone... haven't seen it again.

    I've checked the nearest Target, ToysRUs, and Wal Mart for the last month or so with no Jetfire to be found.

    Then again my area's mighty slow in bringing in new stock...except for one odd occassion where an Alternators Mirage and a Reissue Bluestreak just came out of nowhere on the shelves.

    I've yet to find it because it has yet to be released in Canada except at Ontario Walmarts. Local specialty store was supposed to get it but no dice; their order never showed.

    It is making me want to kill myself. I know the minute I ebay it I'll find it while the ebay one is en route and then I'll have to wait three weeks while they litter the local shelves and taunt me (can you guys tell this has happened to me before?). This BLOWS!

    Cheers!

    Well, I kinda feel like I'm going to have to ebay it or find it in the junkion exchange. I have been dragging my feet with these Classics. I've been holding off buying them for some stupid reason. I was barely able to find Bumblebee the other day... and now I can't find Megatron. Although Megs I'm not too worried about. He'll turn up again.

    Thanks for the suggestions and help guys.

    Jetfire is currently shipping 2 per case, so he should become alot easier to find in the coming weeks.

    Between 2 Wal Marts, 2 Targets and a Toys R Us in my city, I have yet to see him. I'm not worried though, I'm sure he'll show up. Classics Grimlock and Mirage took forever too, but they finally started popping up over here.

    Wow. Reading all these posts have calmed me down a bit. I guess I panicked since all my trips to the store have sucked. I have 3 Targets, 5 Walmarts, 2 TRU, and 1 Kmart (where have they all gone??) and they all produced 0 Jetfires. I guess I'll just keep trying. Hope the skalpers don't get to them first. I'm still in shock from finding that Magnus/Skywarp set...they had a ton btw.

    ive got similar situation across the globe. we got jetfire way back but he was like REALLY scarce. only now with the 2 packs release were getting better ratios with him.

    there are only 3 voyager mold for the line so we will definitely see him more down the line.

    I always thought living less than 50 miles from a major Walmart distribution canter meant that the walmarts around here (all 8 of them in metro Louisville) would be well stocked - but it ain't so. :mad
