    Oddly enough, there was a fresh case of the Scoop wave of comic packs at the Target I was at today. And Prime & Bee clogging their pegs.

    I'm still waiting for mine to get Cosmos the FIRST time. :(  Nothing but Optimus/BB/Megatron/SS here... And that's when they have any.

    I just ordered these two off Hasbro Toy Shop. I still haven't found Swerve and Cosmos in the southern NY/Northern NJ area. I'm sick of looking endlessly.

    Got these coming from BBTS sometime in the next couple days, but it will be nice to potentially buy back-ups if they hit around here. Cosmos & Swerve seemed to hit maybe half the Targets in the OKC area.

    I also saw some Walmarts around here got tons of Prime & Bumblebee when they brought the price point back along with the new movie stuff. Maybe that is to tie with the movie line, but it seems like a huge waste given those figures are a year old and haven't been hard to find. Almost as bad as the FoC voyagers coming back in revision waves and blocking Rhinox, Doubledealer & Whirl for so long.

    I haven't seen Cosmos and Swerve either. Well, they were out once. My brother found them. But I personally haven't seen them since. Only the usual Megs and Scream.

    Hopefully I'll have better luck with these two...

    You might be on to something. Could Destro be buying these up and scalping them in order to put more money towards weapons research?

    Where is Action Force when you need them?

    Because that's what their warehouses finally sent them or they finally dug them out of the back, I am in a Targetless area and the majority of WM I have seen have restocked with Bumblebee Prime waves they either never put out or didn't get.

    Now I just need to find Starscream super reduced somewhere.

    We did get Kickback in FOC so technically all we need is Bombshell and we got Chop Shop too.

    It was worth me paying the couple of dollars extra at BBTS rather than me waiting to hopefully ever see them at Target when I ever even go to one.

    I'm going to feel awfully silly for having spent seven bucks on shipping if I see these hanging on the pegs this weekend...but, as many have already said, my area hasn't even seen Cosmos or Swerve yet. I'm going to cough up that seven bucks as a peace-of-mind fee.

    ^this. i always see old stuff being restocked cause they have stuff left over in the warehouse that wasn't sold.

    driving around looking for stuff is expensive.

    Pegs in my area set empty the whole time there was only one case of Bubmlebee and Prime that my WM got after those data discs I got them both for $7 at different times stuck on the clearance isle then after that those pegs set empty until they reset for movie stuff and restocked those Bumblebees and Primes.

    Id didn't even see Megatron and Starscream until I found them at one Target that still had the space at all.

    Now that these are out I'm wondering how fast the Acid Storm and Gears will be, assuming Cliffjumper and someone else isn't in a wave before them.

    Tailgate and Shrapnel are still sitting in my POL. If I find them at Target first, I'm cancelling my BBTS order.
