    Is Camshaft really that rare? i see people talking about him and saw on e-bay they go from $44us- $100us.

    Why?

    they are shelf warming here and just picked up two for Megamus.

    Yeah, I got mine from a Canadian boardmember at cost. I never saw him in the store once.

    Looks like they gave them all to the Cuncuks. :lol

    Why do you pretend you don't know it's rare when it's been discussed over and over and over and over and over and over and over for several months (if not the whole last year)? It seems there'S a thread about Camshaft's rarity every second day or so...

    I managed to snag two by accident off of HTS. Rather than return one, I decided to use it for a kitbash. Figured he'd be all over the place like Ricochet and Rollbar. It wasn't until after I cut him up that he ended up being rare and worth $50+. Good news is that that one for bashing took the place of a spare Prowl I was gonna use and now he's worth more than Camshaft. Worked out after all.

    Oh, I can't say for sure but I'm guessing by the fact he states that they are shelfwarming by him, he is questioning their rarity.

    But you know, tha's just a stupid assumption on my part.

    Yeah he is pretty plentiful here, the last time I was at TRU there was 5 there I believe. Was thinking of picking up another one and another Prime too.

    yeah, i don't collect alternators, so when megamus mentioned he was hoping to find a camshaft at botcon i told him they were shelf warming back home. since he has something i Really want, i piked them up for him as a trade. He told me i should pick more up cuz they were rare, but i just got the two for him. I checked e-bay, but they seem to be rare, but not really seling.

    yeah, he seems very scarce considering the high prices on ebay.

    High price probably. And the only place he's shelf-warming is TRU (and they seem to keep getting more Camshaft, Jazz, and Prime). No one else* has any Alts in stock.

    Yeah, I've spotted him numerous times here in Montreal.

    Its too bad he's hard to get in most places, he's a sweet alt.


    He's also my favorite alt with Reprolabels on, he just looks too sweet :D

    Ugh, I think that just goes too far. If I saw a normal car like that i'd think it was pretty lame, too.

    I'd trade a Camshaft for a Swerve if anyone is up for it...?
