    Never seen him in stores. The number of Atomic Lugnuts at those stores say Wreck-Gar has been in numbers in those places, but I guess he's that good a toy to fly off shelves like that. I really still hope I can get him before ROTF takes full force soon, though...

    Only place I found him was at a local comic book/collectibles store. So I nabbed him.... good thing cos I haven't seen him anywhere else yet. Wish I woulda picked up Animated Skywarp when they had him too. Haven't seen SW anywhere yet either.

    My ToysRus has a good stock of them, otherwise it's pretty spotty.

    Keep in mind, that if you thought he was scarce before, Weird Al is going to be at Botcon to sign autographs. I'd expect Animated Wreck-gar to get even harder to find as Botcon gets closer.

    I bought the first one I saw a few months ago. I haven't seen one since, although I have not been toy hunting since then either.

    When he was out and about, you could find him with a bit of effort.

    I know, that doesn't help any.

    I've only seen him twice, and I bought him the second time I saw him. I haven't seen him since.

    Weird Al voicing Wreck-Gar seems to have what could have had a fair chance of being a shelf warmer if another had voiced him into a fast seller, honestly It would have been extra cool if they could have gotten Eric Idle to voice him again

    I saw a couple at Toys R Us yesterday. Passed him up and grabbed the last Shockwave they had instead.

    I have recently started seeing him more. I bought one from HTS back in March cause I was afraid I would never find one.
