I have seen him only twice. Once at a Target, and once at a Walmart. My sightings were roughly 2.5-3 weeks ago. Haven't seen any restocks on this figure since and I've been hunting fairly regularly ever since. (Looking for the new Generations figs.) Hope this helps some.

The currently problem with PRID Vehicon is he's short packed (one per case) in wave three, plus some stores seems to have skipped wave three all together. He's in higher case distribution in later waves so hopefully he will be easier to find when they hit.

Hah! Not all east coast states do. I live down here in Florida and haven't seen a damn Vehicon, Knock Out only once (and didn't get him; ended up paying double for him online), and Hot Shot 3 times (About a month ago, then he vanished).

Now all I find is (as far as Deluxes go):

Target: Bumblebee, Bumblebee, Bumblebee, Bumblebee, Bumblebee, Bumblebee, and Bumblebee
Wal-Mart: Bumblebee, Bumblebee, Bumblebee, Bumblebee, Bumblebee, Wheeljack, Bumblebee, Ratchet
TRU: Bumblebee, Bumblebee, Bumblebee, Bumblebee, Bumblebee, Arcee, Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Wheeljack, Ratchet, oh yeah, and Bumblebee!

What a great assortment, amirite? :APPLAUSE: :D

To me it feels like that wave/series has come and gone here in SoCal. I'm sure some may still surface here and there as we move forward but I saw 3 total and I bought 2 of those 3. :VEHI:

I saw one and bought it, and then never see him again.

If you see Knockout or Hot Shot, that means they should have Vehicon. But like said, he is very short packed and maybe you can ask them to see if they have another box in the back so hopefully you will get the only one in that box. Good luck.

I've give up on him in the UK so on ebay this weekend i bought an arms micron jet vehicon £25 with free p&p simply because the price of a normal vehicon is 35 + on ebay , why pay more for less when for less you get a nice gun and a lovely new jet vehicon .

Im in the St Louis area and Target is the only place to get wave 3. TRU and Walart havent gotten new stock in months. I managed to snag 3 of them but it took some time. Judging by how they have the same stock each time I dont think any stores are selling a ton of them. Good luck.

finally saw and purchased the first one i have seen in my area,RI/MA, about a week ago with Hot Shot at a Target
a lot of Targets have had Rgis doing their inventory, possibly getting ready for a floor reset, so more should be showing up soon

I ended up just saying slag-it and ordered the one I have on line. I NEVER saw one at retail in this hell-hole known as Michigan.

Great job, Hasbro. Makes as much sense as short-packing Stormtroopers or Cobra Troopers. :HEADHURTS:

Went to TRU in good old times SQ NYC and no Vehicon... they do have a bunch of shadowstrike bumblebees now so I'm guessing they just skipped wave 3... seems like a lot of stores are doing this...

I don't blame them.. If you worked at TRU making Min wage and know anything about what they're going for on Ebay would you not buy them up? although if they're going for 30-35 on ebay and they buy it for 17(they are 17 in NYC TRU plus tax)minus the fees and shipping you'll be making 7-8 bucks a piece...
Hardly seems worth

I don’t blame them either, just stating. I would think most folks make more of a profit than that as most don’t work in NYC and therefore aren’t paying 17+, and I’m sure employees get a discount.

Scalping or legally reselling a retail product at a 100%+ markup aside, I do think it sucks that Hasbro releases a troop builder that many people across the country have never seen in a store…..

I found one at Wal-mart a while back. (May?) Haven't seen any others since, just random Knockouts and Hot Shots and even those sightings are rare.

I think this may have something to do with floor resets. I was at K-mart today looking for Voyager SS and one of the employees told me they were getting ready for their Christmas reset. The other stores I've been to haven't restocked for awhile so they must be doing the same thing.

Still no Voyager SS and when was he supposed to be out April? May? #-o

I've seen one down here at a Wal-Mart, but I didn't fancy getting him while I had the FE, which scales and looks a lot better IMO.
