    I felt kinda toolish using the DCPIs to get the target exclusive jazz and Starscream, back when I did a few weeks ago.

    As it turns out that may have been the smartest thing I could have done, because barring seeing a few g1 jazzes on the pegs at one store on the day I got them both, I have not seen jazz again or starscream ever just available for purchase.

    I know from some posts people have seen bunches of both. I visit about 3 targets weekly and it looks like the boat has sailed on those guys here...

    how has it been for others trying to find these two? If its anything like here it seems ALOT of people are going to miss out.

    Found like 10 Jazzes, all have been warming pegs for weeks, probably because of their botched paintjobs

    I have seen Jazz a few times and Starscream once. I haven't been out looking much lately though.

    I saw them once, haven't been back to the store though (half hour drive = not too often). All of them had TERRIBLE paint. Black spots on the hood/roof (Jazz), paint missing, etc. I passed.

    I have seen an entire TF section full of them.

    I even tried to sell one for cost on the internet and no one would even buy it.

    Plenty here. I probably would have gotten G1 Jazz, had he come with final battle Jazz's gun. I hate the one from the first version. And I'm not getting Starscream or Thundercracker. I'm waiting for the inevitable Skywarp.

    Nope, not yet. Then again, I honestly haven't been to a Target for quite some time, so that might explain it, lol.

    I've seen lots of Jazzs at the two Targets near me. The Starscreams are a hit or miss; sometimes a end cap will be filled with them, other times.. no.

    I don't get into Target much, because there isn't one close. Last time I was in one, all they had a lone blue Clocker repaint. Some one I know out of state picked one up for me, and sent it to me.

    I should have a Jazz on the way to me by now, worked out pretty well, just hope he's got good paint.

    I guess the fact that besides about there being about 50 bazillion kids here, there is also a huge infestation of flea market vendors/comic stores/scalpers contributes heavily to the lack of them...before this finding ANY TF target exclusive was not much of a problem.

    I am sure a trip to one of the local flea markets would turn up a good 20 or so of both jazz and ss

    There were tons of them here a couple weeks. They're all gone now. Glad I got mine when I did. Now if I could just find Thundercracker and Bumblebee.

    I saw plenty of both a few weeks ago, but I went to one of my targets this week and found 0 of them both.

    I see Jazz's pretty regularly. But I've only seen Starscream on the shelf one time.

    I've seen plenty of Jazzes, but only 3 Starscreams. All at the same time. Bought a Jazz, passed on Screamer.

    One Target in my area still had about 15 or so G1 Deco Jazz last weekend. They appeared to put them out late relative to the other area stores, so I think they missed the boat on the sales.

    In my area I see the Jazz repaint all the time, Starscream not as much but he shows up often enough.
