    That is exactly the way I felt when i got my hands on it!

    I felt bad that I gave the cashier a quick mean look because she grabbed the box by the see through plastic and it pretty much collapsed in her hand. I quickly smiled at her once I realized that my plan was to open and display him.

    Haven't seen him out here yet. This is one of the releases I have been most excited for this year. Looking forward to getting him. He dropped into my BBTS pile of loot, but I will wait until MP Wheeljack drops as well before shipping my pol.

    i got mine from BBTS yesterday, messed with him for a while. Damn solid figure....i love it, nice tight joints. The major flaw is that chrome, and it is red plastic under,so, if it gets too bad ill just take some Easy Off oven cleaner and soak the chrome off and paint them red and then add the black like in the instructions.

    Until it's weeks/months later and it still hasn't shown up and the peanut gallery has switched to the "you should've been more proactive" part of the script...

    Just found mine at a Toys R Us! Dry land's not a myth, I've seen it! Weirdly, I found Jetfire long before I've seen a Sky-Byte or Roadbuster anywhere near me.

    I bought it when they originally had free shipping and they listed it for cheaper.

    Confirmed at K-Mart in NW IN, its where mine came from.

    Also sighted at the local TRU, so they are out there.

    Has anyone found one of these at a Target or a Wal-Mart? Seems like most are only finding them at K-Mart and Tru...
    These are also looking to be pretty plentiful at TrU, so why can't the Masterpiece Releases be like this exactly?

    Because Masterpieces are more expensive, "intended" for collectors not children, and the fewer that are out there makes for more demand by people like us. Hasblow knows that they can pump out 4million bumblebees and the kiddies will make their parents buy every last one, yet there's still Sunstorm and Prowl shelf warming by me several months after they were first spotted.

    Small kids have no idea who Sunstorm or Prowl are and their parents see the price tag on one figure and go "here.. have this one step piece of crap instead"

    As much as I love the thrill of the hunt, a few clicks online makes sure I get what I want every time.
