    I keep hearing that he is, and before today I hadn't seen one yet. Needless to say, I picked him up just in case even though I didn't want to spend $40 on toys today. Could I have waited? Is he gonna be more common later?

    No, just takinig his time getting everywhere. Though getting him today was smart, anyway.

    He didn't come out with Prime... so he was harder to find at first. Now I'm seeing him more often. Good idea to go ahead and purchase (just in case the kids really want him and he's a ghost for a while)

    No. He's actually wave 2, but, the stores were given the option of putting out both wave 1 and 2 at the same time. My Walmart finaly decided to put out some of the wave 2 stuff. I would have gotten Leader Prime seeing that they finally put 2 out that didn't have the crap beet out of them, but only had enough money for a voyager, so I got Starscream.

    I've seen him at all the big retailers in my area at any given time. TRU had a ton the other day. Target has them, as does Walmart.

    I haven't seen any at my local Wal-Marts yet, and a few of the local Targets have gotten in a couple each that sold rapidly, but one of the TRUs in the area has about 10 of them; basically a big "Leader Bin" with a bunch of Prime and Megatron figures in it. I don't think he's rare, just uneven distribution and stocking at this point.

    No, No, No, If it's out at the moment then it will never be "rare" enless they don't ship that many *cough*classics grimlock*cough*
    Thats the only classics I need.

    Sorry if I came off as an a-hole.

    Around my area he's been a hard find. My friend got one at our local target, it was the only one there....I'm assuming there was a case of two primes, then a case of 1 prime/1megs. I found him at walmart today and hid him then picked him up later, I don't regret it

    I haven't seen him anywhere yet. Leader Prime has been pretty scarce as well. I've only seen 4 of him and that's including the one I bought.

    I say he's common as in not short-packed. Its just the distribution that's wonky.

    I only saw him once (and bought him) up until this week. Now he seems to be everywhere.
