    I was just at K-mart and there were 2 of them there for sale for $35 each.

    I dont collect movie toys, but I thought I remember seeing people looking for this figure....(but that could have been a few months ago).

    Anyway, I may consider picking these up to help out the fellow TFW members who are looking.

    Leader Ironhide is not difficult to find.
    It is also sold at costco stores at a low price.
    Target sometimes has it and with web coupon, can buy it for $30 only.

    It's just impatience. The first couple of waves will hit saturation soon enough. Stores overorder on these waves will cause them to underorder on the later waves causing wide-spread panic when people realize that the red ironhide repaint will be nigh impossible to find!!!!

    Ok, thanks for the update all. I'm not sure where I read they were HTF. Glad I didnt bother picking them up.

    Impossible to find in Los Angeles right now. Like others have said, it's all about timing and patience.

    I can say I for me Ironhide is really hard to find since those Brain Dead Morons at Wally World ordered about 150 Leader Bumblebee's and Sentinel's.So if I don't hurry up and find him he may end up selling out at other stores and being scalped.Way to go Walmart.

    I've seen him three times this week. Once at Wally, once at TRU, and once at Target.

    I think there's only a couple per shipment. I was lucky enough to find the only one at my local Target.

    I saw at least 4 at the Kmart I was at (one was right next to LC Sentinel).
