    I have only seen it once online and it was on eBay. I lost the bid on it , was just wondering if it has been widely released or not?

    I don't think it's been released yet. I got mine off Hasbro Toy Store last month.

    Was it/is it supposed to be released with Dirge? I saw Dirge in stores once, but that was back in December during the holidays and I haven't seen it since. I've never seen Cliffjumper in person, but then again I've yet to see Wreck-Gar, Skywarp or any new Classics Legends except Beachcomber so go figure.

    I have never seen him, nor would I buy him if I did.

    It would appear that Hasbro is currently shipping older waves of Deluxe and activator class figures. The pegs in my area have been restocked multiple times and it is not the newest wave

    I have him though I would stress that the mechanism in mine seems slightly flawed.
    Mold degradation perhaps.

    No Dirge of Cliffjumper in this area. Bummer. I've been on the lookout for awhile, too. PLENTY of the otehr waves, just not these two.

    Haven't seen him here in AL. I haven't been looking but I would have noticed if he was there.

    We had him in canada, in the first wave or second of the activator, and honestly that was more than 3 months ago

    I find it rediculous that Cliffjumper was easy to get up here in canada, but I still can't find Patroll Bumblebee. He is the only one I am missing.
