    I've been looking out for universe ratchet and hot shot lately in my locale with no luck, so I thought about going to HTS for them. Lately they've been listed as "Out of Stock", but now they dont even show up in searches. Does anyone know if this is customary for Hasbro to do stuff like this with toys at the tail end of a line?

    ^ As of late, yes. Universe, Animated, etc, have all had this issue lately on HTS' site. Some listings disappear and then reappear a few hours/days later. Others (such as the Animated Activators Cliffjumper) haven't reappeared in over 2 weeks.

    Speculation has ranged from Hasbro having higher than normal QC issues and pulling the toys, to lack of on-inventory warehoused stock for shipping out, to pulling the lines slowly away due to ROTF coming soon.

    Best thing to do is to keep checking regularly, and if not, then check out the For Sale board.
