    Oh wow. Looking forward to them not being released in the uk and having to pay out of my arse like I did for Arcee. And this time I want both of them. Dagnabbit.

    Heh. $50 plus shipping on ebay. Damned scalpers.

    It doesn't, and the Allspark Almanac 2 states that several figures have gone through the production process and Hasbro is simply looking for outlets.

    Well it's about goddamn time! I'm planning on going to Times Square in New York City this Saturday too, so I'll be sure to go into a certain super toy store in that area in search of these guys.

    Considering that there is now one TRU in north Alabama, and no one has ever seen either an Arcee or a Ratchet there, I can't be too excited. Looks like I'm going to pay outrageous prices again.

    I'll admit it, I'm an impatient bastard.

    Anyone that can find me them before I do in store, I'll gladly pay 20$ per figure plus shipping.

    Don't know where in Ohio you are but the targets in Toledo just started restocking HFTD and generations stuff. This is that window where one day the store has nothing and the next day you go back and find exactly what you're looking for sometimes.

    God damnit... That sucks... I doubt they'll even be released over in Scotland! Didn't see any sign of Arcee nor Ratchet... So we won't see any of these either... You guys are soo lucky!!

    I got Arcee and Ratchet from Toyz and games for a decent price so hopefully they will get these as well.

    I'm guessing these aren't going to be released in Australia, right?

    Because the only Animated figures left at my nearest mall are at Toys R Us, and they consist of a few Leader-class Bulkheads and Shadow Megatrons, a Soundwave and a Blazing Lockdown.

    Still, they might be released in Australia. Might they?

    I hear ya brother... I feel exactly the same way. Add to that an iPad that I bought yesterday b/c it was on sale and I am definitely right there along w/ you.

    Dammit, still gonna have to at least look for Rodimus. That is one sweet looking figure.
