    Note: I know that both toys have (apparently) bee released in Canada months ago.
    I can also confirm first hand that they're out in Germany, as I own both toys.
    I also know that Starscream was included in the TRU exclusive six-pack.

    So please don't cite any of those, as they're not what I'm asking for.

    My question is: Have the single-packed Legends Blackout and Starscream toys been released at retail stores in the USA yet or not?

    I think they have, though I haven't found them myself.

    Well, in that case what you "think" isn't much of a help, unfortunately.

    Havn't seen either in a store, and I havn't seen any legends at all in weeks. I did get Blackout from hasbrotoyshop.com though. :D  It was listed under "Cyber Slammers Blackout."

    I spotted them at a comic shop in san francisco. I asked them where they got it and they said they ordered it online. note, it wasn't auctioned off...

    so.. question is: " Is it a retailer specialty shop piece? "

    also, if so: " who is supplying them? "

    I bought them at Hasbrotoyshop.com, but have never seen them at any local retail store and I check several weekly. I also haven't heard of anyone else finding them at a retail store, except for one that also ordered them online. I hope that this helps.

    I'm surprised to read this, since Legends starscream is a major shelfwarmer here in Mexico, only beaten by legends Megatron, everything else was wiped out. I own several starscreams for repainting projects and I may buy two or three more as christmas presents.

    I saw around 6 Legends Starscreams when I went to my local ToysRus in Warwick, RI right after Botcon ended. Which if I remember correctly, was sometime around July 7th.
    I remember they had Starscream but no Blackouts. If they had a Blackout, then I would have bought all the 8 legends class figures. But they only had 7 (Prime, BumbleBee, Jazz, Ratchet, Barricade, Megatron, Starscream) so I didn't bother.
    I live in Providence, Rhode Island by the way, so when the movie came out, they were all gone.
    Plus, Botcon kinda wiped my entire state clean of any good toys for about 2 & 1/2 months.
    Just a couple of weeks ago, I am finally finding Transformers again. I finally got a Dropkick, Barricade, voyager Starscream, leader Megatron, leader Brawl, voyager Prime.

    I also got 1 high-score, 1 nightbeat, 1 cellphone, 1 camera, 1 70's BumbleBee, 1 08 BumbleBee, 1 Barricade, 1 Bonecrusher, and 1 Starscream as Birthday and Christmas gifts for my little cousin who after me and my brother took him to see the movie (he really wanted to see it). He LOVED the movie and is now a really REALLY into transformers. Before he used to spend his time on the computer, playing video games, or listening to his iPod. Now all he does is play with his Transformers till it's bedtime. It really brings a tear to my eye, seeing that he's found something he truly loves and that it's a cheap hobby with good investments over time. He even keeps all the packages and instructions. Just this week, he bought a brawl, Jazz, and Ratchet with his dad. He even looks for the ones with the best paint. I'm glad we have another Transformers fan in the family. It brings a tear of joy to my eye.:D

    I haven't had any of my American friends say they've stumbled across them; we've had them in Australia for over a month now.

    My local Walgreens had the Barricade in stock in July, but no Starscream. (Local for me is Northern Iowa.)

    Haven't seen or heard of them ever appearing in Ohio, which kinda sucks as they're the only two I'm missing. Oh, well, maybe I'll order them online.
