    I seriously doubt it. He's pretty rare in most places.

    I've only seen him once in stores. There were two of him on the pegs and I bought one.

    Far from a shelf warmer in my area. Considering how long he's been out now I'd say he might be the least shelf-warming-est fig from the Generations/RTS line.

    I finally saw my second one right around Christmas, after seeing none of him since my first sighting back around early/mid September.

    He never got a a UK release (I had to import mine) so maybe you should buy all the shelfwarmers of him and sell them overseas. Actually, maybe that's why he's been so hard for people to find in the US.

    Not necessarily a shelf warmer in my area but it can be easily found. I just saw several at my local Target and Toys R Us last night.

    While not rare, he really doesn't stay around long in stores in my area at all.

    A shelfwarmer??? :throw  I doubt it, I have only seen him in stores ONCE and he was gone the following day. I would have bought it too but I had already ordered it online. Also they sell out on TRU and HTS sites all the time. He's only in stock for no more than a few days.

    I feel like this thread could be translated into "Why is Classics Rodimus so cheap right now?"

    Out of the Target, Wal-Mart, Toys R Us, Kohls, and [wherever else they sell Transformers] stores I've been to in three different states, I've only seen two (count 'em - TWO), and one of them I own.

    I have only seen him on the shelf once honestly, and that's the one I own now. So I doubt it. I think the two repaints that came out alongside Tracks and Jazz might be shelfwarmers though.

    i have, within the past 2 1/2 months and running between 2 cities and just about 8 stores, a total of 4 Soundwave figures on pegs.

    and 2 of them were yesterday at my local WM at 8 in the morning. and those were behind 5 Tuner Mudflaps, 3 Skids, 3, Electrostatic Jolts and 1 Generations Bumblebee.
    (not on just one peg, lol.just buried behind these guys)

    he's not as rare as some figures, but he's by no means a pegwarmer.
