    Not very, unfortunately. I've been trying to get rid of my Jetstorm for a while now with no luck.

    Looks like they're shelfwarmers for the time being, but I'm willing to bet in a few years people will be clamoring for them.

    Haven't seen them here just yet, but my local TRU is typically behind the rest of the country with it's exclusives.

    There's tons of the things at my TRU. In all honesty... they're two of the weaker Ultra molds from Cybertron (I'll still get Jetstorm eventually as I have some weird evinity for that mold) and probably not an easy sell to parents (keep in mind TRU sells Ultras for $29.99 not $24.99) for their children. Bleh.

    Havent seen them in WV yet but they are around across the river in Ohio. I'd set on them a bit then bust em loose for some cash or hold on to them a bit longer. Exclusives are almost always a good investment. :)

    Well, that sucks... my TRU always sells their Ultras at $29.99. It's why I've been waiting to get Jetstorm.

    They haven't hit southern NH yet, but from the sounds these won't be hard to find. Thing is with Animated slated to hit stores in about 2 months, I foresee lots of TRUs not stocking animated till they clear out some of their movie toy back log. Actually I see the same thing with several walmarts as well.

    If these things warm shelves, that will not bode well for the Universe ultras such as Powerglide and Silverbolt-if the previous two white Ultra aircraft warmed shelves, why would they purchase more white Ultra-sized aircraft?
