    sup nub! answer is yes if you are referring to the first 13 releases if you are EXTREMELY lucky.

    most likely you won't find em in stores

    Like everyone said before, Yes, but on very rare occasions. Best bet would be eBay,BBTS,etc.

    I saw a Ramjet in a Kmart not too long back, so yes, it's possible.

    There is no Classics Henkei vs Universe Henkei, the entirety of the line is just Henkei and is composed of both Classics and Universe molds. And unless you live in Japan, you're only gonna be able to get those online or from a show.

    As for finding the Classics line at retail. Eh I picked up Classics Megatron at a Kmart back in the summer of 07, when I was hunting the movie line. Also found the Prime vs Megatron deluxe 2-pack not too long ago at Vons.

    Its up to you. For most of us, those are the main sources for older stuff. I personally use BBTS.

    I'm pretty surprised that they didn't re-release Classics Prime & Bumblebee (and maybe even Megatron) when they launched Universe. Seems to me by doing that, they could have drawn in a lot of new fans to that series who were previously unaware of it before the blockbuster movie came out, and more importantly, gave them a reason to care about Universe. Launching a new line with such random characters like Sunstreaker, Tankor, etc. never made a lot of sense to me.

    My local Myer was overstocked with Primes and Jetfires a couple of months back. Haven't actually checked since then, but yeah, it is possible to find them in stores.

    Classics Prime and Megatron (only the deluxes, unfortunately) were both available at Toys R Us yesterday. :)
