    Has anyone else been having trouble finding whirl or rhinox. I've been checking everywhere for weeks. The only place I found em was at a local comic store for a cranked up 35 dollars each

    Hasbrotoyshop has Rhinox shipping "usually within one business day" and Whirl in 7-9 days. I've heard of Rhinox being found at Kmart but never bothered to check there. HTS is probably your best bet currently if you are in the U.S.

    You're not alone. I haven't seen the wave after Hoist/Thundercracker here in Manila. Last Generations figure that I got was Sandstorm.

    I'm guessing it's because AOE is coming out that they are getting ready for that release instead of the recent Generations figures.

    It's also probably because Springer/Sandstorm/Blitzwing are still clogging shelves.

    All I know is my TRU's distribution center (in MA) is still awaiting a delivery of a little more than 2300 pieces for the voyagers. Hopefully will be in store within the nest 2 weeks.

    As for Kmart, I doubt they have Whirl yet. Still waiting for email confirmation from them.

    Not so much Sandstorm & Blitzwing around here as the Grimlocks, Blasters, Soundwaves, and Soundblasters from those revision cases at Christmas time. Walmart, Target, and TRU REALLY love those cases.

    They're all available at several online shops.

    The cheapest (actual retail price) is Hasbro Toy Shop

    I have this problem with every wave of TF's from Deluxe to Titan in my area. Doesn't matter what the store is, restocks come in of the same waves and never the new ones, so all of my TF shopping is now done online.

    That's all I see. That and the leftover beasthunters, I have to buy waves in bulk when they show up cuase I don't know if I'll ever see em again. They did stock that over priced platinum starscream, but those aren't selling.

    In the UK, we haven't had a Generations Voyager since the Grimlock/Soundwave release in July or August. We've never had Springer, Blitzwing, Sandstorm, Blaster or Soundblaster at all. Same kind of situation with deluxes.

    As opposed to...... $20 ish at somewhere like Walmart or Target?
    More? Yes. But "cranked up" seems hyperbolic.

    Not sure if the HTS 10% off coupon is still good, but I grabbed two Whirls for just over $48 shipped after tax and discount. I couldn't find anything worth pushing me to free shipping, but with Voyagers being $22-$23 in stores now before taxes, it was a wash, and saved the hassle. HTS actually packaged them really well this time too.

    I found a Rhinox yesterday at a Kmart I never go to.

    Very very happy with my Rhinox too. Hips aren't perfect but can hold a pose quite well. Com'on Hasbro, gimme an updated Optimus Primal and a T-Rex Megatron to go along with Rhinox and Waspinator!

    In NJ I've yet to see Whirl, Rhinox or Doubledealer at Retail. We have a lot of Soundblasters, Grimlocks, Springers Sandstorms and Blitzwings though. Targets here all seem to have mostly Beast Hunters and Predacons Rising stuff out. It drives me nuts.
