    I'm half trying to establish my account/myself as a new member here but half wondering about the earthrise series as well. I've collected almost the entire earthrise line here in Pennsylvania with the exception of astrotrain and optimus. I've checked target, walmart and best buy pretty frequently and have never seen one in store. I'm wondering if they have been released in full or if they have certain areas where they were released? Or if people are just buying them all up around me!

    The easiest way to get those restrictions lifted is just go to different boards and reply to things or just simply add posts. Just make sure they aren't against the rules of the boards or anything like that. Oh, and welcome to the community!

    I believe Hasbro addressed the shortage of product in Q1 because of the pandemic. I believe they are going to make up for it in Q2, but your best be might be try to secure a pre-order somewhere.

    Not sure about Astrotrain, but Earthrise Optimus Prime will be repacked with Double Dealer this summer/fall, so he should be easier to find.

    Good luck and welcome to the boards!

    I'll give it a shot, there's a lot to take in here so I was having issues figuring it out. Thanks!

    I have this weird thing where I want to find it in somewhere like in person, not sure of it's the surprise aspect or just the thrill of the hunt haha. Thanks!

    prime will be re-released later in the year, alongside doubledealer, in the second wave of leader class figures for earthrise.

    That’s not weird. A lot of people (myself included) prefer finding things in a physical store

    On a crazy side note, with there being nothing to do in PA with the virus I've been doing some internet searching and finding stores near me and I decided to use facebook marketplace. After i was done looking at guitars and amps lol I typed in transformers just for kicks (because theres usually nothing near me in this part of PA, not even a super walmart or a guitar center or any big stores) and I found a guy about 45 minutes away who runs a toy/collectible shop and I found and bought the following : Siege omega $125, siege jetfire $60, the siege seeker 3 pack $60, 2 of the studio series devastator pieces for $18 each. All new in box never opened. And he had duplicates and multiples and so much other stuff I just hated to leave there. He literally had 8 or 9 more omegas. Everything brand new unopened. I couldn't even believe it.

    Sounds like he went to the Hasbro Warehouse sale. They were selling stuff for ridiculous prices. Awesome finds!
