    Should I just order him online, he is sold out everywhere I look but one place. I'm guessing he won't show up at retail.

    Why would you not say "that one place"?

    BBTS currently has three ways to buy him. He's with other figures, but Lugnut is (IMO) awesome...

    I did the same thing. I'm ok with the purchase though because it comes out to roughly $22 for each figure. I easily pay that at retail so it's no big deal.

    I just don't want to buy two other figures and spent 3x more than I need to just to get a figure. I'd probably be stuck with the other two anyhow. It's starting to look like I don't have a choice though...


    Wow...they were in stock and as I was checking out, it changed to "out of stock." I just can't catch a break.

    I got him on back order there. Grand total of $33....

    He's come back in stock a few times on HTS, so you can probably get him there. If you want him bad enough, I wouldn't wait for them to hit retail, because that may not happen before the DotM flood hits

    You guys who are getting him with Lugnut are probably going to be surprised. I ended up liking Lugnut a lot more than I thought I would, he is a really fun toy. I can't speak for Strafe though.

    Lugnut really is freaking awesome. I haven't opened Strafe yet, can't decide if I want him or I want to sell him.

    I'm really hoping what everyone says about lugnut is right, bc no matter how many pics I see, he's just not doing it for me, but I'm going to get him in good faith that he'll grow on me I think.

    Strafe... Pass. I like that mold WAY better as mindset. I wish they'd do an actual homage to the old combiner rather than repainting molds that look nothing like him red and white an slapping the name strafe on the box.

    Lugnut is sooo much better than Grapple. I wish Grapple didn't suffer from Inferno and Pyro's case of floppy leg syndrome... Strafe is odd... I think I'll like him better once someone makes a new head for him.

    I love the Lugnut mold so much I got both the RTS and United ones. I'll get any repaint/remold they do as well...
