Scalped! They are on ebay. How many of these do you want to bet never even made it past the store employees and onto the sales floor? Anyone ever known anyone who worked at TRU? I have 4 prid vehicons...never seen one in a store.

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.

3 out of my 4 were found in stores(2 on the same day, both within 30 minutes of bidding on that 4th). Before I found them, though, I'd missed about 6 of them(I'd get there and it would be the only figure missing from the case on shelves).

This has become Hasbro's MO in the last year, high demand and no supply. Which is bad enough, but when the scalpers get wind of the situation the problem becomes much worse. I've only seen a couple of Hot Shot's and Knockouts myself, no Vehicon.

Starscream and Bulkhead are almost as bad, I only saw them once and I'm glad I bought them when I had the chance.

I was at walmart yesterday and they said the same thing about the christmas reset. So I hope the wave revision comes soon.

I did find one vehicon back on May 20th and that was the only one I ever found.

I've noticed things have been getting a little slim lately. Instead of an ocean of Bumblebees in every store it's down to a sea of them. Oddly though TRU just restocked DotM and the last few Generations figures. Sky Shadow, Kup, Junkheap, etc.
