    I just bought one today at Wal-Mart and it's the first one I've seen hanging on a peg in the store. And I check Target, Wal-Mart, K-Mart and TRU every few days, I always go through the new figures. Is he just now showing up?

    I left him to peg warm in 3 different stores so I am guessing not too hard

    I wonder what it is with this area. It's weird. I've literally seen one in a sea of a thousand DotM figs in PA/DE.

    I'd say "uncommon" but popping up more frequently lately. I've seen him a few times, but never more than one at a time. Same for Laserbeak.

    There's so much of wave 1 around here that figures from the other two waves are less plentiful in general, but there's been a few Thundercrackers hanging around for a few weeks. They're drowning in a sea of Bumblebees.

    Right now he's more on the "harder to find" list, but he'll shelfwarm eventually, I have no doubts on that.

    I would say uncommon just due to the amount of items already on store shelves

    His availability depends on your area. Some places already have Wave 3 and are waiting on 4, while all I've got is Wave 1.

    The stores in my area are just starting to have DOTM Thundercracker on the shelves, but not very many. I was lucky to find the only DOTM Thundercracker they had at my local Toys R Us and snatched him.

    Common in my area, especially at Wal-Marts.

    Hard to find him at the moment, but when he hits saturation in the next few weeks they'll probably be as common as Tuner Mudflap. They just won't shelfwarm as much.

    In the Southern California area, I've seen him most often by far in Target stores. The Toys R Us stores seem to be slowest in getting/stocking additional waves.

    Most of my area barely has him, but the first Target outside my town had pegs full of him. He varies, to say the least.

    BTW, he's an excellent toy.

    If you cant find him give it a couple weeks and he will hit saturation.
