I have always wondered, what makes some TF toys so hard to find when a new line comes out. Is it character popularity? Wacky Store Distribution? Limited number of a specific figure produced, Short-packing in wave assortments? or a combination of all? Like when the first tf movie came out I dont think anyone would of thought that the deluxe concept bumblebee would of been so elusive (pretty much all the movie figs were hard to find after the movie hit theaters, but NONE even close to bumblebee). I even remember when hasbro was preparing the rotf line for stores, they said that there would be another "hot deluxe" figure, which was the Ice Cream Twins. And more recently, scouts skystalker, Breacher, the new animated exclusives and maybe a few generations. Among the piles of generations wave 1, I have rarely seen a drift outside of tru since the line first started Sometimes it even feels as if certain class figures are limited to certain stores. In my area its like Target gets new hftd deluxes while tru gets generations, and walmart gets a new voyager every now and then. Are they any signs or ways to predict which figures will be the hardest to come by? Because for those id rather just buy online instead of wasting hours of gas looking for them.
