    Internet stores are long sold-out of Human Alliance Mudflap, and as far as I can tell there hasn't been a sighting of him in stores in like a month. Considering that Jazz is due out in like a month and Mudflap's not in that case, is that it for Mudflap? WTF, Hasbro?

    This debacle reminds me of the last wave of Universe 2.0 Legends. Good thing I ordered them on BBTS when I could.

    I really doubt they'd waste all that money designing an entirely new figure and then release enough so only a few people can get them.

    Plus...
    -Barricade is still shipping, he wasn't even in this movie
    -Mudflap is one of the main characters, as was Skids, and they're associated as a pair. Hasbro isn't completely stupid.

    Yeah, I'm just trying to be optimistic for myself. There were two at the Target here and I'm the third guy... So I'm still looking.

    I got mine that I ordered from HTS last week. He wasn't in stock for very long, but he was there. So keep checking. :)

    Honestly, if I can't find a Mudflap I'll probably end up selling my HA Skids. It just wouldn't be right for him to be without his brother!

    Never realized he was on HTS. Seen him on BBTS last week for @50 plus shipping. He's gonna be like Animated Arcee. He's gonna be few and far between for a while, then finally sorta saturate.

    Same. I really thought I was gonna give the line a chance, but Sideswipe sucked... So I resold him for $10... Now Skids won't have his brother, so I'll just be down to BB and Barricade. And I'll be out $40 in fail.

    I've been thinking the same thing. If I don't at least hear more in the way of sightings for Mudflap by mid-summer, I'll probably try to sell Skids off. Stores around me are so clogged with Skids, I've only seen one HA Barricade on shelves anywhere.

    We should send in a question for the Q & A about this situation.

    HA Skidz is really cool. I'm shocked to see people would dump him off at all, let alone because they might not get Mudflap.

    Oh, I agree completely. He's my favorite HA figure, actually. But I want the Twins, not just a Twin - and I want them to scale with each other. They're more for my ROTF cast completist display than to actually play much with, as I'm not a huge fan of the characters (although I don't hate them as many people do). So if I can't have them in HA scale I have no use for one without the other.

    It took forever for Barricade to reach semi-saturation. Even now, he's hard to find in some areas. It's going to be the same for Mudflap, if not worse, due to retailers and Hasbro focusing on toylines like Ironman.

    Dudes, just give it time. He'll saturate soon enough.

    And I think part of it, too, might be the fact that Barricade and Mudflap were kinda being shipped at the same time, thanks to Sideswipe clogging shelves post-Christmas.

    Wow, I had no idea Mudflap was already out. Skidz is clogging the shelves over here pretty hard and I've only seen Barricade once, which I snatched up :)

    I literally put it in the shopping cart, searched for a 10% hts code, ordered, and checked again a few minutes later to see it was sold out already.

    So he was on there, for maybe 10 minutes or so.

    On the feedback thread Ceerad said he got his from HTS a week before mine was ordered, and I had checked that week to see he was sold out still.

    Which means he's been restocked at least twice. Possibly more. Possibly more again.

    So just keep checking! :) 

    And if anybody is going to sell their Skids, at least mod him so he's worth more. :p
