    So I was finally able to secure a Drift for myself. Retail in my area sucks, and I did have a preorder for him at BBTS, but they seem to be slow to get their stock in. Using my PS3 for internet and TRU's website didn't want to work for me at first when I tried to order way back, but finally got it to work and slapped down the cash through paypal and AM FINALLY GETTING A DRIFT IN THE MAIL!!!! Just wanted to share my enthusiasm, has anyone else had this much trouble getting Drift?

    There were a couple of Drifts in my local Target. Don't really care for him, I'd rather have Blurr

    My Walmart still hasn't received any of the new figures yet, still ROTF crap that's clogging shelves.

    Damn, if Drift keep flying off the shelves, IDW would make an ongoing Drift series, and he'll live up to all the mary sue accusations.

    I pre-ordered Drift through Hasbro Toyshop. He came as soon as they got their stock. It was pretty easy.

    Drift is everywhere. I don't understand why people think he's rare.

    Yeah, if you're having that much trouble, you should have asked another board member to snag one for you, they are all over the place.

    ^ This. There's been a ton of sightings/findings in the NC area for him, but trust me, you'll be even more excited when you get and open him. He's a real win figure.

    Yeah, I had no problem at all. He showed up at a couple local TRU's last month, and now the wave has reached saturation once Target and Walmart did their resets in the last week or so. Drift is everywhere.
