I agree with you on the fact that Amazon exclusives sell out fast. It's because so many people have accounts with them and so many people shop on Amazon.
When Unicron came out it was mayhem to say the least. I can't remember exactly, but it sold out several times, and I don't remember it even being offered for per-order either.
I did finally get him the morning of the 2nd day of his release, and he finally sold out that day.
I got lucky this morning as I check the TF news and forums each morning before I get ready for work. When I saw the post, i knew it was going to go fast, so i jumped on it. Seems most of the good news happens in the morning or late in the evening.
I hope you get yours man. I can't stand the scalpers either, but everyone these days is trying to make a buck anyway they can. It's the darker side of our hobby. Demand = Scalpers.
