    Is Highbrow still on the shelves at your local stores?

    In late Oct of last year I found and bought Highbrow at a Target. Last month it got lost when I moved to a new house. I have looked for it at all the stores near my new place and found none.

    I did find them online and may have to resort in taking a chance in buying Highbrow at K-mart. Another option is spending a little more and get the Takara version. Any suggestions?

    Just saw one at my local Target. He's part of the immovable HFTD Wave 2.

    I've only seen Highbrow and Blueberry Fallen at a few K-Marts, and not very many Battle Blades OP or Banzaitron anywhere.

    One Wal-Mart nearby had five Sea Sprays and six Payloads. (Or was it the other way around?)

    Only time I saw one was last year, but I watch the Massachusetts sightings thread, and there've been a few Highbrow sightings at Targets within the last week. So I'd say check there.

    I own one and I've seen him a couple times, just recent as last week...but I think you will see him again as the stores will try to get rid of all it, for movie line soon...

    During my hunt yesterday, I found one Banzaitron at a TRU. I may take a trip to Kmart after work. If no luck, I'll keep searching for a week or two till I buy online.

    Seen a few, mostly at wal-Mart. Can't bring myself to buy him. The blue on him looks like tooth paste and he has fat hips.

    I wouldn't order one from K-Mart. Just like the HA Mudflaps, they'll just grab whatevers on the shelves (HA BB was sent instead of mudflap). So be prepared to get a Seaspray or Ratchet.

    Yeah don't worry. His wave assortment is finally showing up in my area. It just takes time to show up I guess. People have been finding him at K-Marts and now recently, Targets.

    That's what I figured. I have a feeling that the same will happen for my hunt for Wreck-gar.

    I haven't seen him yet at all around here, and I've only seen Banzaitron and Battle Blades Prime a couple of times, though I admittedly haven't searched obsessively.

    I did pick up the Autobot Alliance version and it looks nice to me. I prefer the darker blue they used.

    Don't buy from K-Mart online any item thats part of an assortment. If you order a Highbrow you could end up receiving any voyager. I just saw one in a Walmart today.
