    Was Animated wreck gar released in small numbers? I did not even see him in stores. I do not want to pay ebay prices for him but also do not want to wait and end up paying more.

    He's been seen around.

    But he was released in Febuary I think, so your kinda late.

    You could still see him, but its now ROTF, sorry.

    Yeah, he was out at the beginning of the year/end of last year. You'd be very lucky to find one in a store now.

    Never saw him in great numbers anywhere but TRU. They had piles of Wreck-Gars a couple months ago, and still a few last time I was there.

    I see him at TRU often actually. I thought about buying a few at retail and selling them.

    ^Well that's good then. He never lasted more than a day on the shelve in my area.

    badbadryan, maybe you could ask one of these fine gentlemen to pick one up for you. :)

    I still see him every now and then. Just bought mine about a month ago at TRU.

    Along with Atomic Lugnut, he's warming shelves at my TRU.

    But nevermind, I bought him, I kinda like him, Show-accuracy be praised. :thumbs2:

    He was never in my area, to the best of my knowledge, or, at least, I've never seen him. Plenty of Lugnuts though. My friend ended up getting him at a flea market, but I think he was crazy for paying $100 for him.

    At this point, I would wait for them to announce the next rounds of Voyagers (Wingblade Prime, Blackout, Hydro-Bumblebee, Flamer Grimlock, etc) and hope that he is packaged with them. Or you can order it from Target (I think they actually send Wreck Gar if you order it): Transformers Animated: Voyager Class - Wreck-Gar : Target

    I was able to grab 3 extras back in late May for botcon and there's still a few kicking around on the shelves here. The stock is dwindling however as a month ago I could have gotten 5 at each of my local TRUs without any hassle.

    well, if you are from some countries here in south america... neither Animated Wreck-Gar nor Shockwave arrived... :(  and as for I see, there in USA were really bad distributed, some places had very little and other places too many... hasbro must learn to do this (if they are in charge of that of course, 'cause I dunno)
    Note: in my case, I can't buy things via Internet, so that means I can't get 'em :p

    Well, at least you lucky American bastards actually got Wreck-Gar.

    We've got Hasbro Canada saying that he's most likely not coming here. :(  At least the nice people of here and Cybertron.ca sell him at a reasonable price.

    Luckily I got Atomic Lugnut a couple months ago for $14 on Digital-Toys.

    I've seen him a couple of times here. I got mine in Idaho I think, (I live in Utah though).

    Hopefully Wreck-Gar will show up again in one or more Voyager case assortments when new toys in that class start hitting.
