    Scrapmetal and the 3 different color variations Rambles seem to be a pain in the neck to find. Are they even worth hunting down? I saw 2x Scrapmetal in those TRU display cases and they look tempting. The online stores looks to be sold out too.

    All I got is Scrapmetal and he is worth it. I initially was just going to buy Lugnutz, but saw Scrapmetal hiding behind and grabbed him too. Now I regret buying Lugnutz.

    Well in my opinion Ramble was very much worth it.

    Didn’t pay the prices that there going for now as I got mine back in August, but ya these little guys are awesome in every color.

    If you don’t want to pay for the GF Rambles at least pick up Scrapmetal, the paint may not be as good as the Ramble but its worth it just for the mould. I’m hoping Hasbro does at least one repaint of this guy, once Scrapmetal comes out here I’m going to troop-build these guys :D

    They're great little toys. Very imaginative alt modes, someone get me some Hotwheels for those things to terrorise! The robot modes are very cool as well. Very drone soldier-ish, yet at the same time they look unique.

    Scrapmetal is one fun little figure. I'm going to buy at least one more the next time I see him. I do kind of wish that I had gotten the blue one back when it was affordable, but it isn't exactly keeping me up at night. The alt mode is just built to terrorize mini-cons and micromasters!!

    I had to scramble to find the blue one and luckily I paid the online retail price instead of inflated prices on eBay...

    I have yet to find a Scrapmetal...

    They're not worth it to me, but maybe they are to you. Repaints have to be pretty special to warrant my purchase.

    I SO wish I could find a the damned GF ones, especially the blue! I have Scrapmetal, and I adore him... in fact, today I bought dye and paint to try my luck on him, I hope to have a red, orange (scrapmetal is orange NOT red), purple, blue, yellow, and green ones... I got some things to try to lighten the orange so I can try to dye him blue since I cant' find a GF blue one :cry : but if it fails, I'll have the purple one I want so its cool. wish me loads of luck

    We still have none. I'm waiting and while not having one I will say it is worth it.

    I've got all 3 Rambles and they rule. Grab Scrapmetal if you can and you can decide on how much the GF colors are worth from there. I got mine all for retail ($15ish) last summer or so, so I'm quite pleased. :)

    I wish I could snag a scrapmetal now. :(  It might be awhile. All I see are frigging Brushguards and minicon packs. Who is the frigging "genius" that decided to ship this guy 1 to a case? :stick:
