    Why is this little beastie so hard to find and when found on eBay is so expensive?

    He's not a Cyberverse figure, by the way.

    But yeah, that's fairly surprising. He seemed pretty common in stores, but there's only like two on eBay.

    ok maybe hes scout or legend size all I know is its a little beastie, just won one in an auction with a DOTM Deluxe Crankcase for real cheap ( $11 for both shipped), which I'm guessing cause the seller didn't put the name insecticon in the ad.

    I think there's one in my Wal-Mart marked down to like 10 bucks, and I wanna say that there's also one marked down to 6 in London Drugs along with Chopsaw... but I could be wrong. In either case, they used to be very plentiful, people bought em couse they were cheap, and now they're harder to find because more aren't being brought into stores on a regular basis.

    Other than that, I dunno what to say hah.

    $10 seems like a lot for such a small figure in WalMart:

    Talking about this guy here:

    I have two of those little guys.

    They are fun little toys but not crucial for me to keep around.

    Pm if interested.

    It was 7-8 bucks anyway. Is the extra couple of bucks that big a deal?

    The images derp out when hotlinked, but I know which one you're talking about, and that's how much they often retail for in Canada, if not a little more. Many places actually have (or had) Scouts priced at $12.99 (that's how much I paid for Hubcap & Crankstart because I thought I'd never see em again & otherwise need to go online), but Wal-Mart dropped em down to 9.99 a little while ago when they stopped receiving stock.

    London Drugs has a few random ones for 6.00 because they only have like 4 left/because London Drugs is awesome, and TRU hasn't has scouts for so long that I don't remember what price they were.

    I've still seen him at a couple Rite Aids around where I live. He was hanging out with some Winchargers and such around Christmas time at my local 5 Below.
