    I don't know if this is a concern with anyone, but i live in Massachusetts and i have not seen a single HA Mudflap anywhere. If anyone has news about this or anything please share. Thanks!

    hrm to be honest nothing on the west coast either. we can only assume the stale situation is due to the newer stuff coming out soon. i believe most stores feel that stuff will sell better once they have the newer goods on the shelves.

    Nobody has seen him in stores. Couple of possibilities.

    1) He is an end-of-the-line-worth-his-weight-in-gold figure. If this is true, may GD have mercy on our soul.

    2) There's plenty of them made but they're stuck in china along with the TFCC Dion and Animated Arcee. This is the wouldn't the world be perfect option.

    3) He's end-of-the-line for ROTF but he'll be carried over into the 2010 line. No word on this yet as wave 1 of the new line is Jazz/Bumblebee.

    Never seen him here in Jersey, either. Red Rampage and Evac are MIA, as well.

    Maybe once HA Skids stops shelfwarming, Mudflap (and Barricade) will start to become more common.

    You can find HA Mudflap sitting on my shelf. :lol 

    I am just now seeing HA Barricade starting to hit full release in my area. I would imagine HA Mudflap will see wide release in a little while.

    I fear for HA Jazz. By the time he gets released, no stores will want to carry the HA line anymore. They are shelf-warmers to begin with. The last of the line will be a true headache for people to find.

    maybe if they didnt release bumblebee in ever other wave, they might sell better. if they just kept him packaged with sideswipe and skids and then released mudflap and barricade in the same wave, they would have been easier to find

    I just asked this in my local sightings.

    K-mart keeps teasing me. They say they have HA Mudflap then when you go to check out they say it is now out of stock. I was able to place an order last week but an hour later they sent an email that said they made a mistake and my order was canceled.

    The fact that it's Skids shelfwarming and not Bumblebee says otherwise.

    Pretty much the exact same thing happened to me. I eventually placed an order with Entertainment Earth but they're currently out of stock too. I'm hoping there are some shipping complications in China and he'll show up eventually. My HA Skids is getting lonely.

    This is actually an understatement. BB has been in EVERY wave except the recent Barricade/Sideswipe.

    It seems to depend on the store. My local Target is stuck with 3 Bumblebee, TRU has 3-4 Skids and Wal-Mart has 3 Sideswipes. No mixture anywhere.

    And of course no Mudflaps. So I'm thinking my best bet is Target with the Bee's since they used to be out of HA's, but with the Bee's on the shelf they won't bring out anything new.
