    Have you tried discount stores? Hear in the US we have a chain called big Lots, and that BB is pretty easy to find.

    Of course, the legends class BB from TFU2.0 is more in fitting with G1BB. The Classics version has more of a Sunstreaker feel to him.

    They were dead hard to find over here. I saw the assortment once in Asda and then never again. Came out right around when the movie started to hit, IIRC.

    I think the boards will be the best, this Bumblebee I actually either did't see at all or only once.

    I actually had seen 2.0 more than this one.

    Good luck

    Been scouring E-bay for this figure too...

    I was told it was released in very limited quantities in the Philippines. Haven't even seen one in person yet. The TFU "G1" Legends BB and even the Cliffjumper Henkei Minibot (from the 3-pack, repaint of the former) are easier to find here.

    That sucks. I usually buy the figures you can't find in stores anymore on here.

    What store did you see tons at? I think you have the wrong BB. In the US, I never saw BB at TRU or Walmart. The only time I saw this wave with Menasor, Whirl, BB, and Jetfire was at Best Buy. They had a promotion, where if you were the first couple people to buy the Transformers video game you would receive one of these figures from this wave for free or for a small price. If you wanted to buy the figures without the game, it would cost you as much as the game just for one figure. After this promotion was over the leftover figures were being sold for a penny. I never found any. I ended up buying this wave from Robotkingdom a couple years ago.

    I never saw any of the toys in that wave. Which is a shame, because I would have bought Jetfire and BB, and maybe the other two.

    I saw him, and wondered why they decided on such an awful redeco on that mold.

    Did they ever do that Legends as an Excillion? Because a Legends sized Excillion would go well with my Hot Rod/Rodimus display.
