Based on reported sightings, it seems like the new Generations and RTS deluxe figures have practically hit saturation at this point: This includes Kup, Scourge, Perceptor, G2 Optimus, Wreck-Gar (though he's evidently harder to find), and - to a lesser extent - Bumblebee. I'm not counting the RTS Voyagers or Scouts, or the last of the PCC toys either. However, I personally have not even seen a hint of them. Any of them. Anywhere. I've actually had pretty good luck hunting down Transformers in the past. I could go out once every couple of weeks... heck, sometimes once a MONTH... and still, for the most part, was able to track down everything I wanted. I did almost miss Universe Inferno, and there were a few end-of-the-line TF's, like the red Rampage and HA Mudflap, that I never once saw at retail, but for the most part there weren't many problems. Granted, sometimes it seemed like an eternity before I found an item, but in reality it was at the most around two weeks after the first reported sighting, usually sooner. Now I find myself on the hunt multiple times a week. I've watched the TF stock run down in stores, only to be filled up the next day with more HFTD product. I've also watched the TF sections get smaller and smaller. About online buying: I consider that to be a last resort. Besides, you kinda need to be right there when the listing begins or you're SOL. However, honestly the main reason I don't buy them online is because of quality control, or lack of it. I really prefer to check something out first hand before I purchase it, especially with the number of QC issues I've experienced in the past. Heck, I wouldn't mind shelling out $20 for a $12 figure if I could be guaranteed that it was something close to flawless. I don't, and can't, expect perfection, but some of the crap I've wound up with just seems inexcusable. Guess it's better to have a messed-up figure than no figure at all, but that brings me back to the original topic. Anyway, I'm obviously becoming increasingly frustrated, and was just wondering: Is anyone else in the same boat?
