    How hard and expensive is it to get your hands on a Classics Jetfire now? I've searched the websites of every major retailer. None of them seem to have it available, and I only saw it on eBay for around fifty dollars.

    Do any actual retail stores still have it in stock, or is it totally out of production and done being distributed?

    (this fast product rotation makes me glad I'm not a collector. I don't know how you folks can stand having to search high and low for these things just because they take them out of retail after just a couple of months)

    It was hard to find for awhile around here, but now there's usually one or two at all my nearby Walmarts and Targets.

    Yeah, he was very hard to find for a while, but now I've been seeing him in WalMarts around here as well.

    Go to Hasbrotoyshop, you can get it for cheap and get 10 bucks off using Google checkout.

    Yeah, I'd kinda like the Reissue Soundwave too, but TRU's website and the three stores I've checked, are sold out.

    I got Classics Jetifre at Zellers in Gloucester/Ottawa I picked him up since it was the only one their and Still haven't seen him again since

    This reminds me Cybertron Crosswire picked him up 12 months ago in this month and not once seen him again in stores I did a smart choice

    He was scarce for a while, but he has been pretty commonplace for at least 3 or 4 weeks now.

    It was hard to get one about 1-2 months ago but now, I see him pretty much everywhere I go. Just 1 or 2 of him at each store but still easy to find.

    He's commonplace now. The currently shipping voyager wave has 2 Primes and 2 Jetfires. Megatron will be hard to find unless they ship another wave with him in it.

    Just saw one at my Wal Mart, and if they have it then everybody should have one.

    Funny hw something can be so rare one week and after a while it gets overstocked in a month or so.

    Yeah, I was at Wal-mart the other day and they had 7 Jetfires. Of course, I went back the next night and they were all gone.

    I just got it last week. The lady helping me at checkout asked me if it's hard to find. I say yeah sort of, then she says the customers who bought it usually buy 7 or 8 because, in their words "it's exclusive". So I am sure all the scalpers out there had field day with it. Hence the rarity.

    i have only seen one, and it was at the wal-mart 11 miles away from me. Which means, he must be easy to find
