    I have searched high and low for this guy for the past month and I still have not seen him once, I've seen nearly everyone else from his wave, except for him. Anyone else have this problem? I think I'm just going to buy him online....grr...

    I've not seen anyone from Wave 3 in stores sans Lugnut, and that was only on two occasions, one of which being when I picked him up. Got Grimlock online, from here actually. Beyond that i've not seen anything past Wave 2.

    Move to Pittsburgh, wave 3 is pretty much all I've seen of the deluxes.

    The only wave 3 deluxe I've seen in stores is Soundwave. It really hurts that of the major toy stores in town, only Target is moving Animated a lot (I never see the same deluxes there twice, they sell out so fast). Wal-Mart is permanently stuck on wave 2, with dozens of Ratchets and Blackarachnias, while TRU is still just on waves 1 and 2. Makes it hard to find Jazz, Snarl, and the others when only one store gets them in and they sell out almost immediately.

    I usually go to Target because I have 2 (soon to be 3) right by my house. Over the past few months I had never seen a Jazz, Oil Slick, or Soundwave.

    But went to Wal-mart today and saw all three
