    This is a Deluxe-class, and it never showed up at retail. You're probably thinking of the Flip N' Change Hot Rod.

    i ordered mine on Walmart.com and did store delivery and picked it up at my local store. But I never have seen one on a retail sales space.

    Went to a Ross in south Atlanta today. The Ross was a huge mess and the toy aisle had several shelves that were 100% empty and only a handful of toys. I wasn’t expecting anything but in the mess I found 1 TLK Hot Rod. The only figure I’m now missing from TLK line is deluxe Crosshairs, which I am planning to get soon.

    stumbled on a Deluxe TLK Hot rod this morning at Ross. Though I got it for trade bait. I will keep an eye out for anymore.

    He never showed up at USA retail? Huh, that's news to me. He randomly showed up at the local Wal-Mart (Canada) a few months ago. I thought he was just late, considering that they haven't been particularly great at stocking exclusives in general.

    I went to the one in Port Hueneme and found two for that exact price. Thanks for the heads up!

    I'm sorry but I gotta vent,
    unless you're collecting Titans Return, Transformers actually showing up at retail has been fucking atrocious, ESPECIALLY for The Last Knight. PRID is a pain in the ass to find new stuff from and Power of Primes can't seem to get past wave 1. Studio Series seems to be the only thing that is actually stocked and restocked.

    I expect a huge amount of stuff to hit discounters, the majority of it being movie and prid toys.

    I suppose it depends on the area. I am very happy with the availability of TLK toys. I’m in Atlanta and at TRU I found every single Last Knight figures there except for Deluxe Cogman, Hot Rod, deluxe Crosshair, Slug and Sqweeks. I found Slug and Sqeeeks at Walmart and for Hot Rod at Ross. I had to ordered Cogman off eBay and am still missing Crosshairs who is the only figure from the line I’m missing.

    I hope to find one.  Do you think Cogman will start showing up at Ross\'  too?

    In my defense of mistrust ( :lol ), there was only one to buy! :D 

    Also, I mysteriously found one as well. I'm not really keen on TLK, movie toys, or this version of Hot Rod, but.... it was $8.99, there's nothing else to buy, and I love me some LAMBOOOOOOO!!! :eek: 

    EDIT: I also flipped the head around, as I saw the same issue as you. Generally, instructions DO NOT tell you to flip heads around, but I like to do it when I can - nothing creepier than some random face sticking out from the underside of your car! :eek:  But in bringing that up, would it be macabre for me to attach a TF face to the underside of MY car (without telling my mechanic?)?

    Why half-ass it? Go whole hog.

    Make it a human head.

    For anyone who can't find one, I have one loose in my sales thread. Shipping is from Canada however.
