    I just picked these up and found out that people are saying that they are kinda rare. Has anyone else heard this as well?

    i wouldn't say rare, they're mass release but not all stores have gotten them YET. i was gonna check again today. they were supposed to come out a whie ago but my retailers are kinda slow. i'm hoping they're in by today though.

    I think it's a bit early to declare them rare. They've only been out for a few weeks and some stores still have fairly full stocks of wave 1. Most likely they will be included as part of wave 3.

    They're only hard to find at the moment because they are the new items in the case ratio:

    1x Sunstreaker
    2x Prowl
    2x Tankor (Octane)
    2x Galvatron
    1x Acid Storm

    See, they're the only two that we haven't seen already, so you've got some people hurrying to scalp them while they're still a hot property, some people who are snagging them out of cases from the back before they hit shelves, some people who are just randomly buying them because they look cool, then you've got all the fans who are searching to have them.

    They should be more common by the time the next case wave comes around. :D

    Ok because I was looking on E-Bay and some people have listed them as rare as well.

    of course they'll say that on ebay. there not going to say, "buy this from me, but you can easily go to the store and get it next week!"

    Nah, I don't think anything new is rare. They are just the two newest toys out and people are scooping them up. Never go by ebay as a judge of rare. They say everything is rare.

    They haven't reached a lot of stores yet but they are not rare. Matter of fact I made a post about a week ago where you could preorder them off of the hasbro website. They are coming just hang on for a little longer.

    Yeah, like others have said, they're just in short supply due to the current box shipments. I for one want Acid Storm mainly for the mold - I missed out on the original Starscream mold because I had stopped collecting TF's back in the early 90's (started college, etc.).

    Almost everything is rare on eBay. Gotta love that marketing.
