    Is anyone finding him out there? I have seen a few from that wave at ross but he seems elusive, is he htf, should I not even bother with the hunt?

    I've seen him at Targets and at local grocery stores well before they stopped carrying them. I recently saw about 3 of them at different Ross's......didn't figure they were that hard to find if I kept seeing them....

    After the news of the trailer/armour kit by Maketoys that is in the works, he's probably been scalped to shit.

    There a bunch at a toy store in my local mall but they are $16.99 and I am not spending that much money on a deluxe. And the legends rts primed are 7.99. Only thing that makes no sense with the store is 19.99 ha jazz

    Pretty sure I saw one at Ross or Marshall's the other day.

    I have one of this mold (Ok, my son has one) and I really dislike it - why is it so hard to find?

    Edit: Is this the one that looks like the G1 or G2 toy? I hav the G2-looking prime.

    Check places like Marshals, Ross, and TJ Maxx. I've seen a couple at Marshall's for like $7. Kohl's might get them, but I keep seeing earlier waves (Jazz, Fallback, etc) and they're marked up to $15.

    You can get him for $18.99 on Amazon, with free shipping.

    Wow. He warmed pegs for months, not as bad as Gen. CJ and Skullgrin but it was a safe bet you'd find one anytime you walked into Target.

    Best bet now would be to happen on one in a Ross or TJMaxx/Marshall's, but they're never guaranteed to have specific toys in their toy sections.

    Depends on which area of the country you are in. I only saw one rts prime at one target here. I did find him after he hit the discounters.

    I have one MOSC on my shelf . . . I'm waiting to see how cool the MakeToys trailer is to see if he's worth keeping. Never saw it in retail, bought it at BBTS so I'm kind of glad I got one when I did.

    I only saw a single RTS Optimus once at TRU earlier this year, and I snagged him. Good thing I did, because I haven't seen him since.

    Now with that 3rd party trailer being in the works for him, I'm sure every man and his brother are scrambling to get him.

    Do you guys actually like the mold though?

    Because he looks like G2 or just because? I can't get the two grey tabs to lock into the legs very well at all.

    I like the mold a lot. A good figure, a bit smaller than I would like. I'm hoping they do a scourge.

    I thought I'd hate how small he is, but I LOVE the toy, I don't care about G2, but the mold is excellent. That Optimus is currently serving as my collections THE Optimus.

    I never saw RTS Optimus in stores around here. I bought it from Hasbro when the MakeToys trailer was announced and I like it a lot more than I thought I would.
