    I found Wreck Gar at a local comic shop waaay back when he first came out. So I picked him up and never saw him anywhere else. Guess I'll be seeing him in stores soon though, even though I already have him. I just want to find Arcee and Cybertron Ratchet.

    As a Canadian who assumed they'd never show up here, arranged to get a Wreck-Gar and picked it up at TFCon, then bought an Atomic Lugnut via a BBTS sale, I have to say that it certainly took them long enough.

    The Atomic Lugnut color scheme is so much better than the original. I'm glad the our brothers and sisters in the north are able to get these great figures.

    Wow really? Did they loose a bunch of them for a long time or something? Wreck-gar was a bitch to find here in the states.

    I agree. It's definitely superior.

    Considering they've already been through clearance in one or two markets which usually get things dead last, it is kind of suprising.

    Depends on where you are, I guess. He was a lot more common here than Shockwave or Skywarp, at least until we got the huge shipments of both at every retail store in the US back in November. And then he started showing up in moderate amounts in Marshall's all over the country: for months I passed on Wreck-Gar at TRU and Target until he was gone, only to find one at a local Marshall's last December, thank god.

    There really is no predicting shipments sometimes: anyone remember the Nemesis wave of Marvel Legends, and how it took a year and a half before decent amounts showed up in leftover shipments in Wal-Marts all over the country last December?

    I hope Wreck-Gar's easier to find in Canada then he was in the states. The only one I ever saw was in a flea market, and the guy wanted $100 for him.
