    Fellow TFW2005-ers

    The 3 top priorities on my list are:

    -G1 Deco Starscream/Jazz(do these even exist?!)
    -Elita-1

    Yet to every Target I got to there are none to be found(Esp. SS and Jazz)

    has this happened to others, even beyond the realm of store exclusives? and if so(I hope) this shall be a support group for the victims of scalp-fluenza(those whom suffer from chronic scalping.

    Dude, G1 Jazz and SS are long gone... Clearanced out almost a month ago. (chain wide)

    There's still a chance you'll find Elita-1 but it's pretty slim.

    I did not want the repainted SS, but picked up CCBB on hasbrotoyshop.com a few weeks ago and the Jazz you seek at target.com last week. Just do it that way if you can

    Elita 1 is still around. The stores near me have both her and the Arcee repaints.

    Haven't seen G1 Jazz or Starscream in a while. I saw restocks of the Exclusive Scouts two days ago. Elita 1, Air Raid, Armorhide, etc.

    Yeah Jazz and Starscream are done though you might still be able to find a Jazz. They had a ton of them for a while that I saw.

    I'm in Canada, but I got a Jazz repaint from a board member. Totally awesome figure, you should definitely hunt his ass down!

    I picked up extra Jazzes and SS for this reason, PM and they can be yours for cost + shipping.

    Even though you might not be able to find them in stores, getting any of those Target exclusives shouldn't be difficult if you can shop online. Elita-1 will continue to ship for a while, so you'll probably run into her eventually.

    I would offer up a spare Jazz that I ended up with, but I fear that with my cost (incl. getting it shipped to me in Canada) added to the cost of shipping back to you in the US, the price would hardly be better than scalper prices. :( 

    Hoping to just sell off my spare Jazz to a local fan, but no luck so far...

    like what others have said, g1 jazz and screamer are most likely gone, but elita-1, along with the two other target scouts might still be available, saw them about 3 days ago at a local target.

    I got G1 Starscream, but wish I hadn't and got Jazz because I saw G1 Starscream at the discount store (same price as usual) and I could have gotten both.

    I saw the G1-deco Jazz once. There were four of them left, and they were in clearance. I bought one for my daughter. I went back the very next day, and they other three were gone. I saw several of the Starscreams with the Jazz, and they took a day or two longer, but they disappeared too.
    The odd thing is, I hit this Target every other day or so, and I never saw these on the shelves. This is the first Target exclusive that I very nearly did not see, and this has me worried about future Target exclusives. And the WM MP Starscream.

    I'd suggest posting an inquiry to the California Sightings thread and see if there are any San Jose-area collectors that might be able to help you out. Either that or a Junkion Exchange wanted ad.

    The G1 redecos were plentiful here in the Atlanta area--but they sold out long ago, and replenishment was severely limited. Most stores I checked with were lucky to see an extra case or two. If there were any stores that had some left, they were clearanced and sold out.

    I guess I must have been lucky when I picked up my G1 deco Jazz, there was half an endcap display of 'em and I chose one at random. The paint scratched to easily on the nose, though, so I don't fiddle with TFing him much. Ironic if you consider that he thought his original paint scratched to easy. Still a neat display figure overall.

    I have a G1 style movie Jazz that isn't too near and dear to me. If someone wants to buy it off me or make a trade, let me know.
