    What's a guy gotta do to get his hands on a freakin PRID Ratchet? UPDATE!!

    Geesh!! Are we really relegated to paying $30+ for it on Ebay? Toys R Us took it off the website completely. If your lucky enough to find it listed at any other retail outlet online it's constantly "out of stock". It's getting frustrating.

    And, i know someone is going to post to "just hang on, they haven't reached saturation yet" but that's what they said about FE's too. We know how that turned out.

    I don't think prid is going anywhere though and we know he's going to be in the next couple of waves so just hang in there or bite the bullet.

    ...really? This is wave 2 of a whole new line that is going to supersede the movie line for the time being. There's nothing going to happen with Ratchet, and Arcee by extension, other than they will reach saturation and you'll wish they'll be moving off the pegs for newer stuff.

    On the 22nd, he was briefly available on TRU.com. I ordered one then and he's been on back order ever since. I'm hoping he and Soundwave come in soon. I want to get a Soundwave as well but haven't been able to find one.

    Coincidentally you can still see Ratchets page, they just took it down from the search results. Here you go:
    Transformers Prime Revealers Action Figure - Autobot Ratchet - Hasbro - Toys "R" Us

    And here's Soundwave:
    Transformers Prime Robots in Disguise Action Figure - Soundwave - Hasbro - Toys "R" Us

    Don't pay 30+ bucks online. Instead, check TRU like once a week & get it for retail.

    I know you guys are right. I need to be patient. I guess I'm overreacting because of the FE fiasco.

    Ryoku, thanks for the link. I tried typing in everything and just haven't been able to find it. lol. I don't know how you did it but thank you.

    They will be in stores eventually. Just give it time. This is only wave 2 of a line that is supposed to go on for at least 2 years.

    BBTS has three up right now for $21.99 each, if you want to just save gas / time / frustration and stress.

    You know your area better than anyone else posting here; if you think he'll be a bitch to find, might as well grab him online.

    Around here, ordering online is far preferable as one per case figures never reach saturation... doesn't matter if its Wave 1 or Wave 21. The only Soundwave I've ever seen in a store is the one I got pulled out of the back a month or so ago.

    Just keep looking in the stores. Sometimes you get lucky, sometimes you don't.

    Exactly this. The line has been out at some stores for a whopping 2 weeks, it's amazing wave 2 has shown up at retail at all yet.

    I went to my order summary and clicked the link to the product that is labeled Back Ordered. :p 

    Soundwave though I asked people for and then bookmarked.

    I wouldn't worry about Ratchet. You'll come across one soon enough.

    Now the upcoming RID Vehicon: That's one you're gonna need to worry about.
