    Stopped by a Walmart in Canandaigua, NY on the way home today and picked Longarm up. Weird thing was he was the only delux there except for the protoform figures. No sign of even pegwarmers Bonecrusher, Brawl, or Swindle. Who else is in Longarm's case?

    Final battle jazz, Payload, Arcee, and '09 Bumblebee. Looks like someone beat you to those.

    Neither is Philly. Hasbro Distribution sucks round here! Or all 5 major retailers do. Either way, deluxe pegs are full blown empty for about 100 square miles, literally.

    Yup. I went to 2 Target's, Toys R Us, Wal-Mart. Everyone one of them sold out of all the deluxe, voyage and leader class toys.

    I'm starting to believe that the concept camaro bumblebee figure does not actually exist, and it's all a very elaborate hoax.

    Sounds pretty likely, as I have also never seen one in person.

    Then why do I have one?

    The Longarm wave isn't out in Lancaster yet, either. Or York.

    We're feeling your pain here in Oklahoma too. I have been to 3 Wal-Marts, 4 Targets, and 2 TRU in the past two days and there has been not a Deluxe (save for a few protoforms) on the shelf for nearly three weeks now. I did grab an Arcee and BB prior to The Vanishing (about a month ago). Had Dreadwing in my hand as well and put him down...haven't seen one since.

    We got a case of this assortment (wave 4), last week in Modesto, CA. Contains: 08 BB, Arcee, Payload, Longarm, Final Battle Jazz, the drone jet (name escapes me atm), Barricade and Brawl. I put it out on the shelf after grabbing BB and Arcee for myself, and they sold right when i put them on the pegs, literally. Not even to scalpers!
