Many United States Transformers collectors have been searching effortlessly (and in vain) for the Reveal the Shield Scouts
figures. Our friends overseas have had plenty of luck, and those who order from online collectable stores have been fortunate, but what's in the store for the rest of us?
We may have your answer, and it's not good.
According to various Hasbro Retail Merchandiser Reps
, it would seem that Hasbro has chosen to cancel the Reveal the Shield Scout Assortment
in the United States. Beyond the evidence that these figures cannot be found anywhere, word is coming in that some online retailers are cancelling existing pre-orders that they now cannot fill

As for the Reveal the Shield Legends Assortment
? That is apparently still up in the air, but the major retail chains are not placing orders for these figures, as they are still sitting on Hunt for the Decepticons

for the time being, but if you want to be assured any of those figures, your best bet is to start looking at imports or online retailers.
We'll keep you posted.
