    cuz I just found where they all went. I was in the local tru (framingham, ma, for those interested) and I counted 11 on their shelves. he was easily at a 1:1 with all of the other figures there, if not more. I had just picked up the last one from target across the street, and tru was selling them for a dollar higher, but I was like, geez. I doubt they're getting scalped on ebay or anything, but I was just wondering if there was anyone out there that still can't find him.

    I can't find Grimlock at all. I can find Jetfires almost as easy as Prime & Megatron. Well okay not that easy, but last week I went to TRU, 4 jetfires, then went to Target down teh street 4 jetfieres. Mirage I have seen about 4 of him. I just cannot find 1 grimlock and of course thats the one classics I want.

    Seems like New England is finally getting plentiful for wave 2 classics. Both Walmarts Ive been to recently were loaded with Classics figures but only 2 Grimlocks for the 4 to 6 Mirages on the shelves.

    That TRU must have just restocked with several cases...I saw a similar sight at a local Walmart here last week....10 Grimlocks on pegs full of Classics figures. I've seen it on three other occasions, but only a single one was on the shelf.

    Everything is hard to find because every TRU and WM/Target toy section looks like a Transformer just tore ass through it. I popped into Target today and that's the last friggin' time I go to a retail store for at least a week.

    I'll swap a G1 Hoist for a Grimlock tho if you still hav'nt gotten Hoist yet.
    I know I still need to get my ass to storage and dig some stuff out.

    There were 4 or 5 at the local WM, which seemed to overstock for the last week of XMas.
