Every store I go into has more King Starscreams & Legacy Galvatrons than they did the last time I was in them. It's getting SUPER frustrating.

Damn, I must have gotten very lucky finding Blitzwing and Sludge then.

Is it possible they got single figure shipments for these? I also have seen 5 or more Starscreams or Galvatrons on the shelves at almost every Target, but no Sludge or Blitzwing. I've never seen such a disproportionate number for TF. Even Grimlock was relatively easy to find. I haven't seen many sighting posts for these.

I know Blitzwing:Galvatron is 1:2. Possible that Starscream/Sludge is the same ratio.

Because we definitely need more of a repaint everyone & their mother has over a brand new mold/character...

And a local friend found a Blitzwing as well, so I know he's been in the area at least once.

I've been seeing Blizwing at Walmart. The Studio Series Starscreams are either $40 or $20 in my area Walmarts. I went to an out of town store looking for McFarlane Superpowers and found one Supermobile and a $20 Starscream.

Oops, I forgot I had a preorder for Sludge at Hasbro Pulse. Really didn't need a second, I haven't gotten around to opening the one I got from Dorkside nearly two weeks ago.

I love these Dinobots. This is the first time I'm buying 2 of each so I can display them in both modes. All my others are in dino mode so I wanted to change it up while also being able to still display the far superior dinosaur versions. I hope we see both Slag and Swoop at Pulse con.

Got Sludge! Such a fun team. He’s appropriately huge.

Sludge was actually up for retail on Amazon. Since I haven't found him in store yet, and I missed him on Dorkside, I bit. Free shipping too. But uhh, Amazon's free shipping, even though I have prime, estimates him at 2 weeks. Apparently, Amazon is done with the 2 day free shipping. I may just cancel my prime because of it. That's the biggest reason I had it. And this one I don't mind buying online anyway, since it's a sealed box, can't check the paint in store. And if something is broken or missing, I'll just send it back till they get it right. But that 2 week shipping, that's a killer, when I thought I was paying the monthly fee for 2 day shipping. Places like Dorkside and BBTS I get. But Amazon, c'mon man.

Some items on Amazon, at certain points, ship a little slower. They didn't eliminate 2-day, or even 1-day, shipping.

Everything I tried to order had a 2 week estimate, from cat food to the new transformer to a blu ray to a wire for my xbox. I'm not the only one with this issue either. I looked it up and alot of people have been lately, to the point where they cancelled their subscription.

I pre-ordered my Sludge from Gamestop... which hasn't shipped me anything all year. Wonder if I should just bite and get it off Amazon.

Not EVERYTHING is Prime eligible. If you want it in 2 days filter your purchase options on an item by Prime shipping.

Like Ash said, not everything is 2 day shipping, but it still happens. I ordered a hardcover TPB and had it the next day.

Found Wheelie (and a pair of core Ratchets) at Target today. I had no idea these were out yet.
