    I've seen 3 locations for the figure on ebay: Hong Kong (reported), UK (with HK next to it?), and California (WTF...how? :mad  )

    Yeah, I can't contain the excitement. Same for 90% of this board :mad  !

    :)

    If he's out in the US, I would've heard of it...;) 

    The CA one is most likely someone with a connection to HK or he himself bought one from one of the HK sellers on eBay...:thumb 

    And the UK is listed with HK since HK used to belong to UK... Dunno why they still do that though since HK went back to China in '97...

    Isn't he in like, 3 different waves. I'm pretty sure he will be fairly easy to find after the initial mad dash.

    True, but with Prime being one per case, gotta worry about scalpers who really don't care about the figure, just profit

    Months later, yeah, they'll be plentiful, but we got other Alts. to worry about hunting (Rumble and Mirage) :D

    This isn't Star Wars, we really don't need to worry about scalpers.

    Yeah, I don't really see scalpers being a problem. This is Prime and Hasbro will make damn sure everyone who wants one gets one. If it's not the first, second or third wave, they'll bring him back several times ala Swindle and Grimlock :D

    I'm going to have to hit my Wal-Marts early to get one when they do come out. No scalpers, but I swear there is a club of anonimus Trans-Fans in my county. None are on any boards, but all the good stuff is always sold out.

    I have the problem too..however there is one guy on another board that I do not frequent anymore that lives about 50 minuts south of me and ALways drives up to my targets and walmarts and I always see him posting that he bought all the new figures from my areas stores in the sightings sections...one time i wrote him an email asking him why he dosnt just stay in his area since his area has A lot more stores then mine, but he didnt write back.
