    These guys came out loooong ago in the States. Unfortunately Canada never went past Blurr.

    My question is, how easily obtainable are these guys in American retail?

    Have they run their course and are all gone?
    Are the peg warming?

    I would liek to add Wheeljack and Warpath but those guys are just startign to hit American retail so I'm not sweating them yet.

    actually they're part of the current wave of Generations too, so they've started to peg-warm a bit. They're not that hard to come by anymore, as long as the store you're looking at has restocked semi-recently.

    Yea, I wouldn't say that either are sitting on the shelves too long, but if you hit up a store on the day they restock, you can usually find them. Saw a Scourge sit for about a week at TRU. Put another one on the back top peg of generations at Walmart that sat there till the reset for the movie toys cause I thought a local needed another one. Almost thought I needed another one.

    In the south, US. I've seen them at several retail places. I.e. Wal-Mart Target etc.

    I've seen (and in Scourge's case purchased) both in the wild more than a few times, but they're still NOT pge warming by any stretch of the imagination. I'd say Skullgrin is the ONLY figure I'd feel CONFIDENT that I could lay hands on at any given moment right now. Cliffjumper and Thunderwing being the next most likely..

    Semi Rare. I mean I see them, but usually just 1 of each on the shelf and they are gone the next time I am there

    Aren't they one per case in waves 6 (which carries most of the wave 5 guys, Thunderwing, Skullgrin, etc..) and 8? And most big stores skipped wave 7. I see Scourge & Kup occasionally, but most stores are stuck with lots of Thunderwing, Skullgrin and WfC Cliffjumpers.

    I think I would rate kup and scoourge as uncommon; not super common, not rare. I just picked up a Kup myself yesterday at a wal-mart.

    Funny, at the stores I have visited they used to have more PCC sets and they have gotten rid of the battle in space sets :(

    Ebay:
    Scourge

    Kup

    $15.99 each at BBTS, shipping would probably only be like $10-$12 to Canada. Depending on which province you are in, you end up only paying like an extra $5.

    *They also take money orders if you don't have a credit card or Paypal account.

    Yea, my area seems to get things a lot later than US retailers, and when it does it's "a plenty".

    Like, Kup and Scourge seemed like they were never going to get here and then suddenly Kups a Shelf warmer, and I've given away so many Scourges as trade barter that my 4 Scourge/sweeps are on the shelves MISB bc I'm sick of the mold.

    So it'll come. Jsut sucks that there's more of a wait in some areas tha others!

    Starting to see Scourge and Kup more often. Last week I saw no less than 4 Kups and 2 Scourges on the pegs at a Walmart I frequent often. Also last week I picked up a Warpath from the Warpath/Thundercracker/Wheeljack wave for a friend at TRU.

    Well, maybe he just means to say that he's yet to see them in his area, rather than speaking for an entire country. For example, I haven't seen Wheeljack, Jazz, Kup, Scourge, Cliffjumper or Thunderwing anywhere, but I've seen Skullgrin and a couple of others, and a lot of it probably just has to do with timing & location.

    Kup & Scourge are part of this wave too. That's probably why most of us have started seeing them more often, the people who already have those two from the last wave are probably leaving them sit when they find Warpath, Thundercracker, and Wheeljack...I know I did.
