    Damn that sucks. Downshift is peg-warming at the TRU over here (Hawthorne, CA). Excellion is still pretty rare though.

    Downshift is fairly easy for me to find. I saw Excellion at Wal-Mart tonight, too... but that was only the second or third time i've seen him.

    He's a Sainbury's exclusive though, isn't he? I've had a job finding one, in fact I ended up Ebaying the guy.

    Australia has him so you should definatly have himin your area by now. Could you say what other transformers are actualy stocked in your TRU that might help define which wave your local shop has got up to. If they have overall skipped those figs I suggest you go on a hunting spree elsewhere.. beleve me Downshift is worth the treck.

    I haven't seen anything new for a long time in this part of NSW, even though GT's getting new figures in his area (other side of the continent). So apparently it also depends on what indivisual stores decide to stock.
    I wish you good luck.

    Im in NYC and while he's not abundant, there atleast 3 or 4 of him on the pegs. Downshift. Well I had someone from the boards buy him for me since he didnt show up. But now, I see about 10 of em.

    You know, when I found him, there were two each of him and Override GTS on the pegs at Target. I have not seen him hanging on the pegs anywhere since, though I have seen that case asst. sitting on a WM pallet. Since I already had him, I didn't open it.
    But, geez, I'm increasingly glad I found him. He wasn't even on my mind that day at Target; I was looking for whatever the SW Fig Of The Week was or maybe the Universe exclusives at the time.

    I got one sitting about 2 feet above me on my shelf.

    I can easily get Soundwave, CDF Scattorshot, Downshift, Excillion, Overdrive GTS, a whole slew of new figures.
