    I will believe Hasbro's statement when I see more Moonracer on U.S. shelves.

    Nonsense. I have bought like three items from Takara, but I've never seen anything beyond the legends/whatever they call it now/ for Wave 2 in this state.

    • I am in south Atlanta and I saw Snarl once and Sludge twice and the last time was end of March. Originally I only saw Hun-Grrr once and Elita-one twice. However, since beginning of June I’ve been seeing the wave 2 voyagers over half a dozen times at various Walmarts.

    Wave 2 was a flash in the pan at Targets in my area. Got really really really lucky with snarl.

    Found Hun-grrr at Walmart early in the morning before work. Never saw him again in the wild.

    Bought wave 3 deluxes at Thechosenprime.com minutes before they were sold out.

    Primes Master wave 2? Shhh, they are legend.

    Good. I'm still trying to hunt Hun-Garr down for a good price. I was otherwise lucky to get the rest of the Wave 2 Deluxes and Voyagers.

    Same here (SF Bay Area). One day, at one store, I saw a full spread of Deluxes and Voyagers (looked like they'd opened up one case of each.) After that a couple of Blackwings on the peg, and then that was *it* for W2.

    I still think that the W1 product we're seeing now is stock that was supposed to go to TRU but they didn't want firesale-priced stuff to flood the market out...

    Well THIS topic kinda turns the distribution narrative on its ear.
    Seems to me that they are finally starting to admit

    I think the reason why distribution has gotten so bad is a lot more Orange than people realise.
    If anyone want to discuss my theory further take it to pms.

    I see a decent amount of the first 2 deluxe waves but haven't seen any voyagers past wave 1 and saw Unicronus in stores, once. I'm still trying to find Wave 3 deluxes and this whole thing has been a shit show.

    Hasbro is getting lit up on Facebook, glad to see they have to face the problem.

    Just found wave 2 Prime Masters at WALMART in Austin TX, first time I’ve seen them. I’ve been somewhat lucky with finding some of wave 2 but I still have not seen either Snarl and Sludge, Elita-1, Moon racer or Darkwing.

    Praise be to Primus! Perhaps I can finally find that second Blackwing...

    Oh, perhaps I’ll get Moonracer too...

    I saw Wave 2 deluxes....well, the remnants of them twice. Saw the voyagers once. This was way back in March or so. Spent nearly all of March intensively hunting whenever I was off work and on the weekends. At the end of the day I only ever got Rippersnapper, Hun-Grrr, and Blackwing. Still need those damned dinos.
