    seems to me that Generations Thrust and Drift are not getting restocked anymore. anyone else see anything else not hitting the shelves anymore. Some people said that Cybertron Bumblebee and Prime are no longer hitting the shelves but ive seen a few still.

    Actually, post Christmas, most of my local stores have re-stocked Drift, Thrust, Blurr and Dirge.

    The shelves are always a little empty after the Holidays.

    Give it time. Stores are probably trying to recoup from the holiday shoppers.

    Drift, Thrust, WFC Bee, and WFC Prime are the four figures that comprise wave 1 of Generations. Considering just how MUCH of those four were seemingly ordered, I'll bet they'll reappear soon enough at retail. If not, there's always internet outlets

    Entertainment Earth does a good job of showing how many of who comes in what revision cases. Here's their listings for Generations, the Wave 1 figures seem to be done, but like other people said they were ordered in large numbers so some might still have more in warehouse to put out.

    We are currently in Wave 5 and anticipating Wave 6 or Wave 2 2011. Prime and Bee have been in Wave 2 and probably Wave 3. There were tons of Thrust and Drift at stores when they first came out and I though they would clog the shelves forever. They have moved and I only see a few here and there.

    those links are pretty sweet thanks guys. i guess its some sort of clue seeing as all those are temporary out of stock why they arent appearing in stores anymore.
