    I haven't seen them in any stores here in my city. Does anybody know which stores I should be searching? Are they even on shelves yet?

    The Targets around my area usually have a good amount of Skids. Not sure if Mudflap's out yet.

    Target? Damn, that's the most expensive option. I'll have to check it out regardless.

    Skids has been out for almost a month and Mudflap just started to show up a few days ago. I usually see Skids everywhere I go I'm not sure why you can't find him. Try asking store employees to look in the back most of the wave one stuff is still filling the shelves.

    Only place I've seen Deluxe Wave 2(Skids) is WalMart. Had em out here since release day. All I've seen at Target is Wave 1, but I haven't been in a week.

    Thanks everyone. I'm going to check Wal-Mart again today, and Target.

    I was really hoping to find at least one of them at Toys R Us today, since the sale ends tomorrow, but the bastards only had Sidewayses, Rampages, Sideswipes, and Breakaways. All of which I've already got, except Rampage - he doesn't interest me one bit.

    Same at my TRU. The day before the sale, I had seen The Fallen. Went back a few days later and he was gone, So I got Sideways and Starscream. Haven't seen anything past Wave 1 Deluxe-wise there yet.

    Your best bet might be to bring the ad and try to price match at WalMart if you find Skids. Just 5 dollars, but yeah.

    I'm gonna hold off on the twins until I find Mudflap so I can buy em together. :D

    Picked up Skids earlier today at Target. Same with Wheelie and Chromia.

    Went to FOUR stores (TRU, WM, 2 Targets), no Fallen's. I think they're being scalped.

    No sign of Mudflap yet.

    Nah, they're only one per case so they go quickly.

    To the OP, I haven't seen Skids in my area either. I've only seen Wheelie and Chromia once and bought them on the spot. Be patient, though. I'm sure we'll be seeing all of them soon enough...

    TRU had Chromia too, but I wasn't interested in her. I'm going to hold my breath until the BikeBots are released in Legends class, because that's the accurate scale compared to Leader Prime and Deluxe BB.

    Mudflap may take some time to filter through - eventually places will restock with his wave.

    I shouldn't worry about finding him or Skids though, I would imagine as major characters in the film they will be included in later waves. I'd also imagine some kind of two pack down the line containing both the twins. Possibly with some slight deco changes, like battle damage or something.

    In any event, I honestly cannot see any major characters like them being hard to find.

    yeah, eventually they will come so i'm just sitting back waiting. the targets here are most of the early waves we saw at launch. if you want the fallen, hasbrotoyshop has them in stock randomly (where i got mine) except for the shipping which is seven bucks. if you're willing. it's like the targets here only has one fallen or mixmaster and after that you'll have to wait for the next shipment. the tru here only has the first few waves and they have no clue when they will restock. i called last time and the only stock they had were from the sale on may 30th.

    Found Skids at my TRU week and a half ago. Found Mudflap there today. All of my Walmarts are jam packed full of wave 1 and I saw some wave 2 at a target the other day but no skids.
