    Just want to see if he's pretty hard to find in sealed condition? I know the GPS makes him somewhat of a chore to find unbroken, but is he rarer than the other members?

    Anecdotal evidence, but I was all about G2 when it was out in stores and I never ever saw either the Aerialbots or Combaticons anywhere. On the rare occasion a loose set shows up on eBay, I still can't help but do a bit of a doubletake.

    Must be the curse of your location. My parents got me G2 Superion (to this day prefer the G2 deco of them to the G1) when I was 12 or 13 for Christmas. I picked up 4 of the Combaticons on my own later.

    I only remember ever seeing the Constructicons and stuff like the Autobot Cars and Starscream, and later stuff like the little guys with the chrome engine-guns (like Skram)... no Combaticons or Aerialbots either...

    TRU had lots of them back in 1994.

    I saw several G2 Aerialbots on Ebay last week, but no Slingshot. I don't see why he would be any rarer than the others MOSC, although I could see the figure suffering breakage inside the package.

    A lesser-known fact is that the elusive G2 First Aid also suffers from GPS.

    Mine never suffered from GPS. He suffered from clumsy Lars syndrome. I stepped on him, and crushed him into nothing. :cry
