    Hi^^ Im new to the board.

    Is the Classics Ironhide, Sideswipe, and Silverstreak rare? I have been going to every dept store near me and all I find is Acid Storm, Galvatron, Prowl, and Sunstreaker. NO sign of the 3 above mentioned and I dont like ebay prices.

    It depends on location.

    They have just been released. New toys are usually hard to find at first.

    I was actually surprised to see them so quickly in my area, so they'll be plentiful soon I think.

    I haven't seen them anywhere yet, but I think that's because the shelves are so clogged with the older waves at the moment.

    Heck, if I hadn't ordered the trio from HTS, I'd still be looking...

    And grab Ironhide anyway you can, because he's only one per case, and the next wave is the 25th anniversary wave and has all new figures... Ironhide (and Sideswipe & Silverstreak to a lesser extent) may end up really hard to find later down the line... Unless they mix up the future waves a bit.

    Picked up mine on monday.
    Case allotment of initial assts is :
    1x ironhide
    2x silverstreak
    2x sideswipe
    2x acid storm
    1x galvatron
    With ironhide it's first come, first served.
    The allotments will change as revisions of wv3 come out.
    In a month, wv3 will be as plentiful as wv1 & 2 are now.

    as i've said on the sightings threads for Maryland. the dundalk walmart in baltimore has plenty. I got mine all at once and then came back 2 days later and they had another 2-3 boxes of universe plus 2-3 boxes of the new animated wave in. I'd stick with walmart for now, though toysrus seems to be catching up in my area.

    I found them in my area just a week after the first sighting. I picked up all three, even though I had Ironhide ordered from HTS..I received him today, and I'm sending him back because I found him and Silverstreak at a wally world last Sunday. I think this line will hit saturation quicker than most, because it usually takes new waves forever to hit Ga..and my area of Ga in particular. This time around was different though..I found Sideswipe at a location one day, and Ironhide and Silverstreak the very next day at a different location. Maybe it was just really awesome luck though, because I'm now looking for Silverstreak for my little cousin and I can find him nowhere.

    BTW, on Monday I will be shipping the IH I ordered from HTS back to them, so they should have at least 1 instock in the next week or so for anyone who wants to order it from them (He looks to be in descent shape too)....But Screw 16.97 for one figure when I paid less for TWO (I ordered mine before I knew about the coupons). I don't think I'll ever let my patience get to me again..Unless it's one hell of a long wait.
