    So far, what's been the rarest ROTF figure? Which one(s) are darn near impossible to find, and Primus help you if you find it and pass it up?

    the Mudflap with the 'mudflap' license plate would be my guess.

    For me it's Soundwave. Mainly because I've been keeping an eye out for him and have yet to find one.

    Around here it seems to be Scalpel as well. I've only seen him once, and not again. I don't have an overwhelming desire to own him though so it's not that big of an issue.

    And come to think of it, Wave 1 is starting to become a little thin. I haven't seen Sideswipe in ages...

    Rare right now yeah, but I think we'll start to see a lot more of 'em come out. But you're exactly right, that and the unpainted tooth Skids.

    you know it's weird but Ransack and Depthcharge I haven't seen since the very first night the toys were out. I saw them at a couple different TRUs's, but I still have never seen them again. Not at Target or Walmart anyway.

    I meant to pick them up too, which kinda blows. Hopefully they'll pop up again.

    I've encountered all the figures, both sideways, both mudflaps, both breakaways, Jetfire, HA Bee, ect.

    But so far the one that's impossible for me to find would be Long Haul, people have said that TRU got some in various places but that's it.

    I've also only seen a very few Jetfires and Barricades for some reason.

    From what I have read on here lately, it appears to be Jetfire.

    Yeah, I've noticed he always sells out after I see him.

    In my area, ala Watertown NY, it appears to be Stratosphere now. I saw him a while ago, but alas he has disappeared. Soundwave is completely missing, the only reason I found him was I went to Toronto this weekend.

    Scalpel is missing too.

    So far, for me, it's been Soundwave followed closely by Stratosphere, but he's finally turning up more.

    Besides HA Bumblebee, which I don't think has showed up in my area yet, I would say that Sideswipe is by far the rarest.

    Ehhhh Mixmaster has gotten rarer in my area. Voyagers seem to consist of Demolisher, Meggy, Ironhide, and Prime. Others have gone missing :<

    Hope you can find him though! He's pretty neato.
