    I should have started collecting the movies toys back in Summer but just never got around to it. Now it seems you cannot put your hands on any of the Voyager Movie toys such as Voyager Starscream, Iron Hide, Ratchet and Blackout. Hasbro.com shows those toys to be out of stock as well and ebay sellers have inflated the prices due to their shortage. Does anyone know if Hasbro is going to have these particular figures available after the holidays or are they discontinued now?

    Thanks

    Hasbro will be re-releasing everything again due to shortages, just be patient. I have been seeing alot of leader Primes and Megatron's in my area in new shipping boxes that dont look like the ones they first came in, so just be patient they will be around again, most likely some time next year.

    One of my local WMs are filled with Deluxes, try there.

    I did start late a bit. I told my dad "just Prime, then that's it"

    After the movie, I wanted to collect the entire line, and I have all the mainline(except for Voyager Megs and Prime, might get Prime soon) and a few drones. My dad got a little pissed for me not telling him before, and we had to search everywhere to complete it

    And if you have Aldi stores in your area, check them. They have those Voyagers and for only $18.00 no less. And yeah, Wal-Mart has a lot of those, but I would be quick to get them because I've been seeing more of the Rescue Ratchet and Thundercracker assortment.

    Yeah rescue ratchet and thundercracker were added to my collection as well as bonecrusher, arcee and leader class devestator...er...brawl. :horse: 

    I went on a TF hunt 2 nights ago by going to 5 walmarts in a 10 mile radius. No luck. Plenty of MP Starscreams and the other non-movie characters. I'll continue to look and be patient. I'm surely not deperate enough to pay double via ebay.

    Since you seem to be more worried about the older Voyagers I searched Amazon, Wal-Mart, Toys R Us, K-Mart, Sears, Target, Hasbro Toy Shop, Big Bad Toy Store, K B Toys, and the Official Club Store sites for you. Out of those the links below are all I could find in stock for the first 2 waves (Starscream, Blackout, Ironhide, and Ratchet). I hope it helps. Good luck with you hunting.

    Ratchet (Club Store): $24.99 for non-member and $19.99 member
    Starscream (Club Store): $24.99 for non-member and $19.99 member
    Decepticon Desert Attack 2-Pack (TRU): Blackout and Scorponok 2-pack $26.99

    Yea. like everyone else has been saying.. definitely start checking.. the xmas season will bring in lots of stocks... heck.. Walmart has been stocking crap above the shelves because they have no place to put it..

    Not sure where you are.. but distribution probably hasn't gotten to you yet if you're out in the middle of nowhere?

    Christmas is coming, those Voyagers along with other hard to find items like 74 and 08 BB will likely be restocked. Probably will become shelf warmers too.

    Speak for yourselvs. The walmarts here have jack sh_t. Kmart is the same way. We dont have any targets here yet. I was just up in Vegas for the SEMA show, and I hit at least 7 local targets up there. I came back with 10 new items. :D  The couple of kmarts and walmarts up there did not have anything good. Oh well.

    It's also worth remembering that there's supposed to be more collector's editions at some point, like the ones Best Buy has (or had) with the metallic paint.
