    I'm looking into possibly buying the e-Hobby G1 Hauler but only see one listed on eBay. I believe that he was made and sold alongside Sunstorm as an e-Hobby exclusive but why does he seem harder to find than Sunstorm? Was Hauler produced in lower numbers or is he just much more popular than Sunstorm??

    Sunstorm was re-released last year, while Hauler wasn't. So he'll be more rare.

    Wouldn't mind a nice MISB Hauler. Not big on the eHobby re-colors but I do have Sunstorm. This one I'd like to have also, since he was in the cartoon!

    Interesting. Guess that would explain it!
    Thanks.

    And that begs the question if e-hobby might re-release others, especially high-priced stuff like Anime Astrotrain, ghost Starscream and the Go-Bot minibots.

    I think Sunstorm & Black Megatron might be the exception (as they're the only ones they've ever done), but you never know.

    Load Hauler (as he's called on his bio card) is very nice. I really like the green color, the blue eyes, and the purple window.
