    I know, I know it may be nothing special for most people out there but I have been searching for this little bastard high and low since the end of the first movie and now finally after literally years of searching tracked this toy down.

    Amazon.com: Midnighter XR-4 (Watch): Toys & Games

    Shipping was pretty high to Canada for it but frankly I'm just glad to finally have found one.

    For those of you wondering (or care) the reason I am so happy to finally track this toy down is he has eluded me ever since his release. Due to he was pretty much one of the last first movie toys to be released I suspect he did not make it to most shelves. I've been checking eBay and other online stores for this toy periodically since his release with this being the only place I've ever seen him in stock and for sale anywhere.

    Normally I would have given up a long time ago for a toy like this but it just got to the point were I had to own this toy just out of principle alone as I just never saw the damn thing. That and being a huge supporter of the "Real Gear" concept from the first movie line makes this purchase a bittersweet one as unfortunately Hasbro has decided not to continue the Real Gears for the second movie as nobody cared the first time around.

    But ya I've rambled enough but ya I'm happy :D

    wow i didn't know he was that hard to find, i got him and the green game controler at the same time and left multiples behind. I use the 2 watches as Frenzy & Rumble next to Mp3 Soundwaves

    Grats though, I know what it's like to search for something for a long time and finally get it... feels damn good!
