    Try the Junkion section of these boards, that would be my advice.

    Unless you luck out and score a great deal for one on eBay, this might be your best bet. Have you not gotten a single PM from someone looking to unload theirs?

    Keep an eye out for promising eBay auctions, retailer re-stocks, and continue bumping your thread. That's all I can recommend. Patience is key here. It may take a while, but you'll probably get a fair offer.

    eBay's standard just a few months back was 159.99 give or take. What happened... now he's 190.00+?!

    robotkingdom have some but it's at the 190 USD before shipping.

    My advice would be to wait a bit, unless you really need him NOW there's bound to be a re-issue sooner or later.

    Or even better for your wallet, an inevitable [but altered] USA release.

    Good luck, my man. I've been trying to acquire one since joining these boards and becoming active on Junkion, but no luck. In the rare chance someone does put MP11 up, he's snatched up in minutes. Missed out on two by 15 minutes or so in the last three months.

    Like others have said, patience. He's the last fig I need for my MP collection, so I'm just saving up until the right opportunity comes along. Once he's acquired, then it's time to save up for Hercules!

    Thundercracker happened. People want a matching set. Or they passed at first, then got Thundercracker for cheap, and realized that the mold was significantly different/better than the original MP Starscream mold, and suddenly backpedaled and scrambled to get Starscream. That's what happened to me. I was lucky enough to get him from Betatoys while they still had them in stock, but those are gone now too.

    Good luck! Sad to say, at this point eBay is probably still your best bet, if you can win an early-morning auction or something. It seems like all the smaller obscure online toy stores have been cleaned out.

    pretty happy I jumped on a junkion deal back in late may for $135 shipped. previous owner just didn't like the figure, and it had ever the slightest tiny paint chip on the head. easy remedy and awesome toy for the price.

    he actually sat on it a few days back then too before I offered. crazy how demand has skyrocketed for him.

    I'm a little impatient at the moment (well I was never a patient guy to start with) because I sold my hasbro screamer & skywarp and now there is a huge hole on my mp/3rd party shelf... Skywarp I got the igear one to replace the old one for about $90 and now I fell a little stiff forking $195 for screamer :s

    Everyone decided he was suddenly awesome. Same thing happened to Grimlock if I recall... he was $100 for a long time.... and then he just wasn't and started to climb.

    I'm surprised Hasbro has no plans to put one out stateside. Not that I don't like Thundercracker enough - but if they ditched the cape and crown and just put out Starscream at TRU for $85? Shoot, I'd snap one up.

    Grab the Igear screamer maybe?

    The cape and crown are neat, but are they the extra $100 worth of neat?
