    I was just wondering here, who thinks what figures are the toughest out of the ROTF/HFTD line so far, and how hard it was to get them.

    So far, the hardest figures for me have been:
    Battle Blades Optimus Prime
    Lockdown
    Jetfire

    Battle Blades Optimus is still new.

    The hardest one for me to hunt down has been Scattorshot. I still cannot find him and I'm hesitant to order him online because I want the dark variant.

    BB Prime is a HFD toy, not ROTF. I've never seen Evac or Red Rampage (nor was I planning on getting them anyway). Mindwipe used to be rare, but I've seen a lot at TRU. Skystalker is pretty rare. So is Scattorshot.

    The ones that seemed to be rare relative to the rest of the line...

    - Red Rampage
    - Evac
    - Thrust
    - Until recently, the Lockdown/Brawn/Ratchet wave, but I've seen a fair number of those at the clearance stores, like TJ Maxx and AJ Wright
    - Jetfire
    - Shadow Command Megatron
    - Skystalker
    - Scattorshot

    Skystalker and Sonar around here.

    Lockdown is not entirely uncommon at Fred Meyer stores in the NW. I'd be happy to do my best to hook anyone up that's in the US.

    Skystalker I only saw a couple of times. Red Rampage and Evac never showed up here to my knowledge.

    Deluxe Evac and Deluxe Red Rampage have shown up in Ross stores.
    The case of 8 with evac and red rampage is being sold at amazon for $90.
    The Scout Sonar wave I have seen at TJ Maxx.
    I bought Battle Blades Optimus from hasbrotoyshop.com just a few days ago.

    I've seen Skystalker ONCE. It's frustrating because I've seen the rest of that wave of Scouts multiple times. Just not him. : /

    I can point you to three Walmarts around me that still have loads of Lockdowns sitting on their shelves.

    More to the point, Jetfire I only ever saw briefly, stores just ordered far too many Primes and Megatrons. I've never once seen Evac or Red Rampage on a shelf.

    Tuner Mudflap. Remember, if you see him, buy him. He'll be worth $$$

    I'm gonna go ahead and go along with the concenus on Evac and red Rampage. I've never seen them either and it seems that most people haven't. I've only seen Skystalker 2x and bought him the first time. Jetfire has been around and was hard to find at first, but later not so much. As far as Battle Blades Prime, I saw a pallet display with at least 10 of him at Wal-Mart last night. He shouldn't be that difficult to find. That Evac and Rampage though, hardly anyone seems to have found them.

    Evac, Redrampage, and the Skystalker wave of scouts were the hardest to find here.

    I kind of chuckled when someone said jetfire. There was an entire endcap of him at two wal-marts near here.
