    Since HTS still doesn't have this guy, has anyone found him online from a big-name online retailer? I'm not talking about BBTS or any other small time overpriced place, I mean an online retailer where he is at retail price?

    Had no luck on Ebay so far for one, so I ended up buying mine in a local store... overpriced ($40CAN instead of $25CAN).

    Have yet to spot it myself. I've been checking quite regularly though. Will let you know if he pops up.

    He's on eBay, but only from Asian sellers ($30 for the figure and shipping is not cool. I've found complete G1s that are cheaper shipped.) which leads me to believe the major retailers here have not picked him up. K-Mart is the only store around me that is selling Titaniums right now and they only have Rodimus Prime and Soundwave at the moment.

    Nope. I'll just keep waiting. I know he'll be out eventually. If you still need one by then, I'll keep you in mind, MMM. :)

    Dude, he was $17.99 on BBTS. Thats only a $2 mark up from what the other 6' Titaniums cost.

    I was debating getting him but when I saw I'd be paying $16 in shipping for MP-04 I said "f*ck it" and got him. No regrets whatsoever, especially considering how expensive he is right now. I actually hope the movie messes up the release of him and other Titaniums so he doesnt come out in wide circulation and becomes an even rarer figure.

    That makes you an asshole in my eyes. No offense, but that was just stupid.

    I'm still looking forward to this figure...

    Checking eBay every day.

    Oh cmon, it's the equivalent of getting a new video game system on release day and knowing very few people around the world have it. Am I an a-hole for hoping that feeling lasts? I dont think so.

    I was just kidding. Haha! But it feels good to have him MISB.

    I don't buy from BBTS, and exclusivity is a crappy concept IMO. The only people that benefit from it are scalpers and people who sell TFs. It wouldn't bother me in the least if all of the rare figures in my collection were easily affordable to others. In fact, I wish that was the case, because then I could get my hands on some rarities for a decent price.

    RIPOFF. Retail price or no deal on this one, I'm afraid. If that means I don't find one anytime soon, so be it.

    Unfortunately it's the non-USA retail price.

    I'm still holding out hope of finding him at retail. Will it ever happen? Doesn't seem like it. :(
