    Or, it just may be reaching saturation point in that area.

    Or better still, people are waiting in hopes that they will be able to pick up the silver-faced version after other people bought up all the Smurf-hide versions.

    I doubt that most purchasers would know about the upcoming silver face version. My bet is that it's a case revision that has 2-3 Ironhides, some Glavatron and some other figures. I'm seeing lots of ironhide and g-tron here too.

    True. But it is still a factor, small or not. Most of the initial ones that were snapped up weren't due to casual fans, either.

    I didn't know Ironhide was short-packed. Never had a real problem finding him here.

    I figured it was that Ironhide looks like crapola in package with that mess of creases and gaps on his doors and windows which put kids off on the toy.

    Ironhides are pretty much everywhere in my area now. I am just waiting for Hound, Cyclonus, and Inferno. Is Smokescreen going to be in the same in the same wave as these?
