    For those who are still having difficulties getting ahold of Classics Jetfire, my local Walmart just got in two cases, the loadout was:
    2x Optimus Prime
    2x Jetfire

    Megatron was cycled out of the assortment (I work there, so I've been keeping track ;)  ) in favor of a second Jetfire.

    As the revision cycles out to retail, getting Jetfire should be getting easier if it hasn't already

    Prime's the shelf warmer, so they phased out Megatron? Somehow, I fail to see the logic in this.

    Still, I have yet to even see a Jetfire. :(

    that's the first thing I thought when I saw your name as the last post. don't worry, you all can thank me for the predaking reissue because I bought a vintage metal one A MONTH BEFORE THE REISSUE WAS ANNOUNCED.

    I'd be excited if not for already having bought 2 of them, found with little difficulty.

    I had snagged mine on Christmas Eve myself, even if I hadn't, I knew I had a good chance at them anyway.

    Still a bit jarring to see FOUR Jetfires (and a full peg of Grimlocks) at this time.

    why the HELL did they phase out Megs instead?? dumbasses. I see Primes EVERYwhere, but almost never megs. at LEAST they could've made them both 1 each.

    That would have made a lot more sense, yes.

    That would explain why I can't find Jetfire. Is Grimlock hard to find? I've been out of the hunting loop lately.

    I've seen the opposite here - LOTS of Megatron's and hardly any Prime's.

    Also been noticing over the past couple of months absolute TONS of Bumblebee's, Rodimus' & Astrotrain's, but next to no Starscream's.

    Mirage, Grimlock & Jetfire haven't even made it into store circulation here yet, but I imagine Jetfire will fly off the shelves, followed by Grimlock and probably leaving Mirage to build up and collect dust.

Now it looks like I gotta start up my regimen again! Its not the people who were buyin em, 'twas the store employees! Target Employee: "ya we got a case in back, want me to bring it out?" Me: "ya!" Target Employee: "looks like it was opened already....sorry" Me: "DOH!" Great news thanks! Ramjet and cliffjumper not far behind.......

    I haven't seen any those guys! Only good old Bumblebee, Starscream, Hotrod and Astrotrain. I haven't really checked since Christmas yet so there might be more now.

    Jetfire you complete me!

    Good for those who have not seen jetfire, however there will be an even larger sea of unpurchased Primes now. I swear he is the only classic I see everwhere I go. They should have phased him out, I have not seen a Megatron in a long time.


    I found Jetfire before Halloween, and have seen him several times since. Just one every once in a while, nothing consistent.

    I went to a TRU today, and they had 14 - yes, fourteen - Optimus Primes, no Megatrons, and no Jetfires. They did have a lonely Mirage testifying to the presence of Wave 2 there, though. Alas, I have Optimus and Mirage already.
