    Everytime I go TF hunting all I ever see are the basic deluxe line & no voyager in sight. No Starscream, Ratchet, Ironhide, NOTHING! I've only seen Leader Megs. I've searched all over my small town & all the big places in the nearby city. Plus most places online have them sold out(or are available for a ridiculous price).

    I haven't seen a leader class Optimus Prime in over 5 weeks.

    I always see Voyagers. Sometimes leaders, but never deluxes besides Bonecrusher.

    Real Gears- Plentiful, I doubt I'll ever see Meantime and Highsccore
    Real Gear 2-packs- Over ordered at the closest Walmart... 1 sold in 3 days... (to me)
    Deluxes- If you are in the movie, the game, or were supposed to be in the movie but scrapped, you are sold out. (AKA all we have, if we have anything, is protoform Screamer)
    Voyagers- Closest Walmart seems to get a case or so a week. Sells out quickly
    Leaders- They exist? Closest Walmart had 2 cases for June 2, then got 3 more in early July. All gone. Only saw Megs at TRU once.
    TECH- TRU had a case that looked like it had been in a trash compactor.
    Robot Replicas- TRU had some, 2nd closest Walmart had some... None otherwise.

    Target was suffering from the drought before it started... 2nd closest Walmart HAD 5-6 cases of deluxes 5 days after the first sighting of Concept Bee... None since...

    Real Gears are about the only thing on the pegs at any store I've been to.

    Seems Hasbro underestimated the demand for movie toys (though I've heard of storm/tsunami/flooding mucking things up for the Chinese factories too)

    Not too big a surprise, since a lot of movie-connected toys often just kinda sit there. :)

    There are shortages of all figures where I live, and some other areas, you're a bit late to the party

    We still have leaders here, and Walmart and Target recently put voyagers (the old ones) out on the shelf. Other than that it's Real Gears and Roleplay toys. Even Bonecrushers, Swindles and Protoforms are nowhere to be seen.

    We have been Lucky in Oz with Voyager and Leaders. Except for Blackout who I haven't even seen yet in Brissy. Deluxe are strangely good if you love Decepticons, I found a tonne of Dreadwings, but no Barricade, Brawl or Dropkick. No Jazz or Bumblebee (either version) but Arcee pops up lots. I have only seen one Scout Class Signalflare so far.

    I have seen none of the rare Voyagers. Like Thundercracker etc...

    (What are the all the Rare Movie Deluxe & Voyager Figures?)

    Happy Hunting all ^_^
