    Ok, there were a few of the Movie transformers that i didn't get before because I thought there would be a surplus of them. However, I now can't hardly find a transformer in a store. I live near Atlanta so that shouldn't be a problem... Anyway, I was wondering if they will keep releasing more of the first selection of toys for the movie, like the Starscream and the Optimus Prime and Megatron ($40 versions..). Or is this how the toy industry works and they just release a bunch then move on to the next wave of toys?? Thanks.

    There basically is a shortage of TF's all over the place. People are getting really mad about it. Personally, I don't care. I only need to get 2 more movie TF's. LOC Blackout and RH Blackout (I'm giving the Prime RH to my cousin). I see it as a nice break from buying TF's Especially since I'll be making a lot of purchase's next year from the Animated and Universe (Classics 2.0) lines. Welcome to the boards, btw.

    I am sure supply will catch up with demand. Or you can try to get repaints that are coming out for Prime and Starscream and most likely Megs.

    I see plenty of Voyager Primes lately, it is a pretty good figure for $20.

    And some stores have them, and some just don't.

    I was at a Wal-mart about thirty minutes away from house over the weekend, and they had like 6 leader Primes and 6 Voyager Megs, but no leader Megs and no Voyager Primes.

    Thanks for the all the info. Yeah, I guess I just need to actually buy the ones that I see when I am out. I really didn't realize there would be this many toys released for the movie. I guess I should have seen it coming with such a huge movie.

    Keep in mind, in November and December, when the Christmas shopping season kicks in, Transformers are really going to fly off the shelves this year. Don't plan on buying any TFs in December.

    I'm getting some signs of recovery here. One of the Wal-Marts put out a fresh case of Voyagers, including Megatron (and presumably Prime, although I didn't see him). They've also put out more deluxes: the movie protoforms (which they should have put out back in May, but instead completely skipped).

    Target is still stripped to the bones, though (the bones being Prime helmets, Real Gear, 3" Tits, Cyber Stompers, and the blasters).

    Still barren here, although I picked up a Longarm in Atlantic City today at the KB Toys outlet store. My Targets are empty as well. I thought they were going to be the movie headquarters and now they are totally stripped?!?! I did find a few Ultimate Bumblebees, of which I want, however ALL of them were smashed up at all three different stores. I need one with a pristine box for $80.00 Thank you.

    I actually found a Barricade and Dreadwing the other day. First new deluxes in ages. Too bad I was too late to get a concept Bee.

    I haven't seen one of the Ultimate Bumblebees yet. I would probably even buy one of those with a crushed box because I want it so bad :)  Where have people seen those at?
