    has anyone else noticed that it has been incredibly difficult for a lot of us to find anything new in toy wise when it coems to the transformers reveal the shield line?

    seriously i live in ohio state and have looked all over the state in dayton columbus lima and even toledo for thelast 3 months trying to find me a RTS long nose cab truck g2 optimus prime and i aint found shit so far.

    Yep. I live in NE Ohio, and I just ordered everything online. In the long run, with the price of gas, it's a lot cheaper and less frustrating to get them online.

    Shipping and production with this line is just ridiculous so you're kinda left with 2 options: wait it out until your store get them in stock and stalk the stores weekly like I do or you can order online like I should...

    Walmarts around me have been terrible (not really even sure they are getting the RTS line), they have pegs for Generations but I have yet to see any since before Christmas (and I check every weekday during stocking hours after hitting the gym). Target has been great in most areas, and TRU is hit or miss. Mine got 2-3 revision cases in 3 weeks ago and they flew off the shelf when they had the sale. Wish I had bought a few more Wreck-gars when I saw them.

    As others have stated, online is the way to go. find a few things to order to save on the shipping, and I think spring2011 still works on HTS. Saves a lot of frustration if you can find them in stock.

    As Kaiwera said, either online or be prepared to stalk the store. If you are going the brick and mortar route, you need to know the stock days and strike early (if they arn't a 24 hour store). I am starting to get them down again, but am prettywell caught up. Plus the opening rush at TRU is something everyone should experience once. It is just funny to watch.

    From looking at the sightings forum, it looks like Walmart is on the up and actually getting stock! and the good revision too, 2x of everyone. Targets seem to be phasing the TF section down and I've seen TRU get the new figs once and not restock.

    Me too, I did the same thing. The area around Eastwood mall used to be a good place for TFs too. I the all of NE Ohio has the same Hasbro rep that's telling stores not to bother ordering until DotM.

    Ha! I work in the Eastwood Mall. I live 2 miles from it.

    It's a small world. :D 

    But yeah, it's a desolate wasteland when it comes to Transformers. I was so desperate for something new and different, I bought the DOTM Prime preview figure at Wal-Mart today.

    You're probably looking in the wrong place because so far the whole line (bar Scout Wave 2, which hasn't been seen anywhere, and apparently one Voyager wave) has been found at UK retail.
