    I agree. Airachnid's alt mode looks sweet and sleek but the robot mode not so much. At least she has some good points to her. Not much but it's still better to have a few good points then none at all.

    Does Airachnid have her spider-mode? Official? Fan-mode? Anything? I know Airachnid's blades can't really be used as spider legs but if there's a half-assed spider-mode in there somewhere I'm hoping for an eventual 3rd party leg/blades set.

    I live in NJ (and in KY at the moment for work) and haven't been able to find any Knockouts, Hot Shots, Vehicons, or much of anything except Bees, much less these new Wave 4 figs! I know, dead horse and all, but I was wondering, since Wave 3 distribution was so poor, presumably due to so many stores not ordering due to the Bee clog, does this mean that Wave 3 (and maybe 4 and up) will show up down the road in high numbers at Ross/Marshalls/TJ Maxx? Is that how it works? I would love to find tons of Vehicons at discount prices in a couple of months! Or am I mistaken how that process works?

    Well from the looks of it you can half transform her legs into the position of her alt mode but I don't have the toy yet to confirm this.

    Yup BBs and Movie toys , pretty sad.. Another bad thing with my area are the scalpers who have people call them when the new stuff is about to be put out so they can be there waiting to get it right out of the box.. I have actually been asked twice if i wanted to be called when they put stuff out but never got a phone call..

    Finding Vehicons for discount at Marshalls/TJMaxx/Ross would be freakin' sweet. Stores I think again bought too much of the 1st wave. I got one Walmart swimming in 'Bees and 'Cliffs again!

    If I can find her at retail as well, i'd love to try this.

    I've never thought of doing this but with my hectic work schedule, I don't see how I could use this to my advantage.

    OH You can believe thats for sure.

    It's a Mainline and we're actually having friggin difficulty. It's like Hasbro intends for Prime to fail.

    I got here today.

    She's not good.

    I think she'd be better if they hadn't sacrificed so much of the robot mode for having an opening cockpit.

    And her articulation is essentially nonexistent.

    Yes!...because camping is fun! I don't think store security or the cops would like it though...I'm more scared of the wife yelling at me though!...lol

    The stores need to call up Hasbro HQ and ship all these 'Bees and 'Jumpers back. Whoever thought of multiple waves of Bumblebees needs to get moved to another department...pronto!

    Another question is why isn't HasbroToyShop at least trying to compete? Why isn't the Vehicon stocked?

    My friend, who works in a warehouse, got what he thought was the shipment of Wave 3 TF Prime figures, but was in fact Wave 4 with a note informing him that Wave 3 was recently cancelled.
    Has anyone else heard anything about this?

    I stumbled upon Dead End in Renton, WA at Walmart, as well as the two cyberverse sets in Auburn, WA, also at Walmart*. :)  :) 

    No Airachnid yet, though. :(

    I went to Wal-Mart today and saw Cyberverse Ironhide, Cyberverse Driller and Jackhammer, the new Bumblebee repaint, and... That's it. All I wanted was Dead End and Airachnid, and they were picked over...

    Hmm, my Targets are usually the ones to get these waves first, but looks like everyone's reports are saying Walmart. Will stop in a check *fingers crossed*

    I have checked 4 Walmarts this week, and they all have the same yellow infestation, but no Airrachnid wave. :(

    Both TRUs near me had a crapload of Dead Ends but only one Airachnid.
