    It's about time that Mirage should be seen somewhere. You see, I finally found an Alt. Prime today. Coupled with Cannonball and Repugnus last week, and Soundwave the week before that, I'm all caught up. This can only mean one thing- there are more new TFs about to be seen (probably far from me) so that my hunt begins all over again. I mean, what are the people at the 24-hr Wal Marts going to do if I'm not there 3 nights a week looking for toys? Why would I even bother to stop in at Toys R Us? There's just no way I can be caught up, so let's start posting those sightings- especially you Californians. Lucky freaks, getting everything first. Well...enough ranting. Discuss...

    Heh heh that would be sweet if Mirage started popping up...but I'm pretty sure it's still a couple months before it's 'official' release date. I could be wrong though, there's so much stuff coming out I get confused on all of it.

    I guess that I have to order this guy. Lately Alternators are rarely seen down here.

    I must have him, not just for the coolness of the toy factor. As I've grown older Mirage has become a favorite character of mine. Tries to be a good guy but still seems to get a bad rep and people still look down on him despite his efforts. That's a character I can relate to.

    I still can't find alt. Optimus Prime. Either the damned "I'll pick up three of them - two to leave boxed and one to open!" folks keep clearing them out or the scalpers are quicker and more adept than me. Aargh.

    I thought the same, but happened to wander down to the toy section of a local Target while shopping for my wife, and there it was. Good luck, man. Ops_IS_a_truck!

    Ha, good point Omegatron. I'm caught up now too so I know how you feel. But I'd wait till there's a confirmed sighting before doing the rounds.

    Well, I hope he isn't supposed to be out yet, I am still desperately hunting for Alt Prime to no avail :(  I have been in every store I know of in the past few weeks and they all have the exact same alternators, or you can tell the Prime wave wasn't there because of the figures on the shelf. Very sad :(  I mean I just found Soundwave last night! How long have people been coming across him. My area is slow.
