    A bit, but not that lucky. All the deluxes are slowly becoming more common around the country, even Bumblebee.

    I just found one at the Wal*Mart adjacent to the Franklin Mills Mall in Philadelphia. Anybody in that area, may want to go and check for more. I didn't take the time to check for anymore. As my title suggests, I don't normally buy Autobots, but figured this was a worthy find.

    Congrats. 08 BB still seems to be a bit hard to find in some areas.

    Enjoy your victory

    *looks at his 2 08 BB and 3 battle damaged 08 BB 2 packs*

    I still have never seen the "normal" one in a store, but I have seen plenty in the 2-pack.

    Not really. Hard to think of someone who obsesses over a toy lucky.:p  (j/k)

    Still, around here they're not as rare as one might think. I understand in the US is different. Lucky would be finding Hasbro MP SS.

    Eh, they're not that rare and I think the scalpers are starting to back off a bit on them. Everytime I put them up at my Target now I see them stick around for a couple of days now when they'd be gone the next... or that night if I was picking one up for a friend or relative... funy when you've got family and friends whom are suddenly into your hobby because of the movie...

    i found one this morning at a target, and it's not like i've been going to stores looking for him. i just happened to check the aisle and noticed they restocked and there he was. only one, though. If i can, i'll probably get another to keep sealed since i really do like the mold and most likely one for my nephew.

    Depends where you are and just plain luck. I've searched for him like a madman and I've still never seen one. I got to the point last week where I just admitted defeat. Maybe someday I'll come across it, but I'm not going to waste any more effort on it.

    Same here. Got the two pack, but I'm still hunting for an "un-damaged" one in the regular deluxe packaging.

    It's getting out there now. I had only seen BB one when I first got it back in August, then didn't see it again until three weeks ago when I saw it EVEYWHETE. Granted, they're all gone now since the shelves seem to have been reduced back to nothingness around here, but they were definitely on the shelves.

    I had two. One was found in the stores where they had two and the other I got with Voyager Optimus two pack. The second one I sold to my friend.

    Meh his days of stardom have passed. He's still not a pegwarmer, but more of him shows up in every case now so he's always around if you're looking.

    I think the 08BB craziness will be looked back at with confusion and shame in future years. He is just a cool deluxe (as are Dropkick and Longarm), nothing more (definately not worth $40 plus shipping).
