    For those interested, here's a video review for Blitzwing. It's in German, but you can clearly see what's going on.



    Didn't find one for Nitro series Dropkick.

    Are these super ultra rare or something? I wanted to get Dropkick but never saw one in a store. There is only 1 on ebay. Nothing on Hasbro Pulse or BBTS. Sold out on Target.com. I didn't even know they were released.

    :wtf:

    Blitzwing is regularly going for $75 and up now. You can still find Dropkick for around $30 some places I think. These two were apparently a "blink and you miss them" type release.

    Basically now completely unavailable, which is weird for something like energon igniters. They are both awesome by the way, as stand ins until we get/if we get better SS releases.

    Well shit! I only wanted him to make a custom Whirl. Oh well, I have a lot more important stuff to go for. Guess I can just forget about this one.

    That's my hope. I think this was another case of oversaturation of wave 1, thanks to shippers and pallet drops. Overstock and wave 2 stuff that had nowhere to go once retailers moved on from BB movie product will end up at TJ Maxx or ROSS probably for the holiday season.

    yeah, i've been looking for blitzwing forever. every target i ask (9-10 now) has only had the first wave, except for once when i saw dropkick and no blitzwing. target.com and walmart.com don't have them and neither do any collector's sites. i'm at a loss.

    Even that one goes for some $$ now as it's still relatively hard to find, if somewhat easier than the EI version. I have one I haven't opened just because, well, it could end up being worth a bit if they never make a SS version.

    I think it might be they just didn't produce wave 2 in large quantities. Just my guess though. I think discount stores is an unlikely possibility.
