    Has anyone found Elita-One, Armorhide and Air Raid yet?

    I'm desperate to get these 3 figures, but haven't heard anything about them since BotCon.

    Thanks.

    They're due this month, but no sighting yet.

    Might end up being nearer September. IIRC those were only "prospective" dates.

    Thannks for the replies.

    I just thought I'd ask, as if you check on the Target website its showing some stores as having them in stock.

    Could it be that some have them in their warehouses, but can't put them out as they've still got the last 6 figures out?

    Pretty sure that's going to do it for the Target scouts; three waves of three. There was a rogue listing for a tenth figure (Strongarm) that seems to have either been an error or perhaps that was going to be part of one of the assortments and was canned.

    It was a brilliant idea to have them as Sector 7 vehicles, and a brilliant idea for a little sub-line in general. And (at least around here) they're selling exceptionally well. The first wave was around for a while, but Wave 2 came and went fast here.

    The onlylist I can find, is the following one;

    1996 TRA MOVIE SCOUT HARDTOP 6-53569-24135-5
    1997 TRA MOVIE SCOUT ARCEE 6-53569-24137-9
    1998 TRA MOVIE SCOUT SIGNALFLARE 6-53569-24214-7
    1999 TRA MOVIE SCOUT STRONGARM 1 6-53569-25048-7
    2000 TRA MOVIE SCOUT SKY BLAST 1 6-53569-25049-4
    2001 TRA MOVIE SCOUT CLOCKER 6-53569-25050-0
    2002 TRA MOVIE SKYBLAST 2 6-53569-25307-5
    2003 TRA MOVIE STRONGARM 2 6-53569-25308-2
    2004 TRA MOVIE ARMOR HIDE 6-53569-25309-9

    It looks like they decided at one point to change the second Strongarm for another Arcee.

    target.com has had elita-1 on their site (and showing available in stores) since June, so its hard to say if even they know what's what at this point.

    I love these little guys, I have/plan to get each one minus the Arcee and Skyblast repaints. One repaint of each was bad enough, but two each is just asinine.

    I'd love to see some larger Cybertron molds like CD Scattorshot get the Sector Seven treatment.

    Right, that would be my guess as well, although when compiling the Movie Toy List, I held onto that other Strongarm listing for completion's sake.

    No, the Scout Assortment all has one DPCI number. So the "availability" you see next to certain Targets when you do that search on their site just means they have SOME of the Target exclusive scouts in stock, but it can't tell you which ones or what wave they're from.
