    Not as many as there use to be since Five and Below stores in the states got that wave of scouts for $5 before Christmas, not to mention the Ross/TJ Maxx stores that also got them.

    If TJ Maxx did get some, it was only a very few. I only ever heard about Windchargers at Ross and Five Below. Interesting to hear that they're still shipping to Canadian Wal-Marts.

    I know I am still looking for one that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. How much are they selling them for at your Wal-Mart?

    Two great places to search if you're still looking for this guy (aside from PMing the op here):

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/items-sale-trade/493871-rts-windchargers-cheap.html
    Wanted Items - TFW2005 - The 2005 Boards

    Windcharger may be a bit more abundant that he initially was, but it's still certainly harder to find than quite a few other figures.

    The polarized TransformersFans sometimes think that just because a person or a good number of people are able to get a figure for a good deal, then this figure must magically have met all demands. Don't get me wrong, I'm insulting any one person here (only pointing to trends I see on the board here sometimes), but people often forget that not everyone posts what they're looking for and what they get all of the time.

    Most often, when people suffer, they suffer alone.

    Now, while I wouldn't quite equate "suffering" to not having a RtS Windcharger for example, I'll certainly say that it's no fun when you can't find a certain figure. Add to that when it shows up at a place that is not even near your area.

    Anyways, those are just a few of my thoughts here. I wish you guys who are still looking a hearty "Happy Shopping!" :)

    I still have one for sale... Unfortunately, with overseas shipping and PayPal, it'd be $31 USD total.

    Yes I'm still looking, but there other figures that are top priority. (Like prime CJ)

    I have yet to see a Windcharger in person. All I seem to find in Ohio is DOTM Bumblebee.

    Well, people were willing to pay that price for several months because it was still a lot cheaper than what eBay scalpers were asking...

    I was trying to do a straight swap for a Takara exclusive scout like repaint Breacher or repaint Insecticon but never got anywhere with that and that was when they were going for £20.00 each :(  People asked me to get them then changed their mind when they found out they had a chance to get them for $5.00 or buy a Japanese one. I didn't see that as reason enough to take them back though.

    I still have a couple but I'm going to keep them now until something better shows up they still will probably make good swap fodder in the medium term I suppose if another Takara exclusive scout ever shows up.. I'd also swap one for a couple of Exclusive Microns or Mechtech chromed weapons.

    The strangest thing I walked in CVS and found him. I paid like 12.99 but was pleased I found him. Surely he will be repainted at some point

    Takara has/will have repainted him in black as a Decepticon.

    But I think the Prime Cyberverse Commander subline may have super seeded any scout toys for the time being unless a repaint shows up in a gift set perhaps.

    I would really welcome a whole bunch of scout vs packs it would enable them to issue all the missing stuff like Rumble and Frenzy and Bodyblock or the missing Movie scouts of various kinds too.

    I would rather like to see Tailgate or Decepticharge be made too.

    What I don't understand is that members aren't willing to pay 15-20 shipped from other board members but 50 plus shipping for the same toy and a black version from online retailers.

    I still think that's a good deal for someone still looking for one.

    I totally agree.
