    I have never seen him on Target shelves. I search on Target.com, and he is "not in stock" at any of the 10 Targets or so around me.

    Is ebay my only option? :(

    I wouldn't say he is rare, but it does seem he never showed up at some Target locations. It was on the shelf steadly at my 3 local Targets for almost 4 weeks before they all dried up.

    Ebay is actually a cheeper option than BBTS or similar stores. There are so many on eBay right now that you should be able to score one for around $25 plus shipping. All 7 ending today are @ or under $25.

    I wouldn't say there rare. They were only a limited run so I suspect each Target only got a certain amount of them and once they sold out that was it. They still seem to be relatively good on eBay hovering around that $25 mark which isn't too bad.

    At this point I would say if you can wait for the regular Prime he should be showing up soon too, and they also have him 2-packed with the 08 Bumblebee which is a sweet deal.

    Yeah, not really rare, but they were kind of a limited exclusive. My Target only got about three shipments of five or six boxes. We had them all over for awhile, but than they dried up.

    Honestly, at this point, it may just be cheaper to wait for the regular release of Voyager Prime as the only difference is a few blobs of paint.

    :(  Damn, I was afraid of that. That's probably what happened around here. I didn't go to Targets when the movie stuff first came out, as I work at TRU, and got a discount there....so I just shopped there.

    I got mine about a week ago and they had a whole shelf of them... today they didn't have a single one. Glad I picked it up when I had the chance.
