    Nope right now he is all over in SE PA. Now how long he will last will depend on how many waves he is packed in.

    I see three/four of them at every place I go to. It's the other seekers that are hard to find.

    You should get one regardless. He's great. If there's a Target near you he's only $10 there.

    Not too hard to find so far. The price isn't bad and it's a nice figure so you might as well pick one up now.

    I see them all over. Drift seems to be the one most people are buying, since I see less of him than the others.

    He's everywhere now en mass. I wish I had waited and not got him from smart toys 2 months early for 15 bucks each.

    Drift Does seem to be the one I see less of. Probably because he's a new mold and character.

    Yeah for some reason out in cali, drift and thrust seems plentiful whereas the WFC prime and bumblebee are gone. I guess little kiddies still want an optimus prime and bumblebee over thrust and drift.

    Here the two that are always gone are Drift and WFC Prime, I see a few of Thrust every now and then, but everywhere I go there is always at least 3 WFC Bee's, guess we know the shelf warmer for my area.

    But do yourself a favor, pick up Thrust while you can, he's a great figure.

    Bumblejazz, I like the sig. :) 

    I see him everywhere it seems like, I sure wouldn't think he's hard to find.

    Thrust is readily available now, but I'm not sure how that will last. We have wave listings up to wave 4, and Thrust is the only wave 1 toy NOT carried over.

    On the flipside, Drift gets another retail run in wave 3.

    Thrust and Drift have started to hit saturation recently...at least in my area. The local TRU had them in late June/early July before selling out. They finally restocked them about a month and a half later. Walmart and Target have also picked up the pace.

    They are pretty much everywhere, but I noticed some places that people had cleaned out the Thrust/Drifts, I guess between non EFC fans, drift fanboys, seeker fanboys, children, and scalpers they get cleaned out in certain areas.

    But some places are almost entirely Drifted.
