    Wondering are these still being sold? Haven't seen any in the area recently. Particularly looking for Optimus. If anyone can help PM. Thanks!

    I see all of them with some regularity, but Soundwave and Megs are pretty uncommon. Prime and Bee were flooding the pegs at a couple local Walmarts the last time I checked.

    He's a good one to get, but I hardly see him anymore. Mostly Cliffjumper now, and the odd Megatron or Soundwave.

    Thanks guys for replying and sharing so quickly. Well mainly wondering b/c when asking employees they usually comment haven't seen that series in awhile. So just wondering if the series is over. Seems kind of quick if things started coming out around late October last year.

    Actually, the War for Cybertron figures were marketed under the "Generations" line banner, and Optimus was shipped for over 6 months (he was initially released in the summer to ride the promotion for the game, and was still in some assortments of wave 3, which hit in October-ish)

    He is no longer actively being shipped (that I'm aware of), but he really shouldn't be that hard to get via online sources (last I checked Hasbro Toy Shop still had him)

    I've been looking for a Soundwave lately, but they're pretty hard to find. If you're looking just for any from the WFC line, go look at Wal-Marts and Toys R Us. I've found a couple there.

    So you're looking for Prime?

    I believe some TRU currently have a slightly redecoed version in a gift set with Megatron and BB. Don't remember what the set is called, but I know I've seen it recently.

    Also, ebay almost has to have him.

    Yeah, my TRU still has the redecorated sets with Prime, Megatron, and BB.

    I would like the Megatron, but the Prime and BB are... ehhhh. I don't like the BB mold.

    I personally think Hasbro wasted an opportunity with that set.

    They could have done Magnus, Galvy and someone obscure like Nightracer, Glyph or Rook.

    Can't blame them for repackaging their three core characters tho'!
