    With ROTF line wrapping up, what were some of the hardest figures to see at retail in your area? We all know which ones were/are the easiest. Mudflap, Wheelie, Desert Ratchet etc. But, which figures in this line did you never see, or only maybe once or twice.

    For me it was Thrust. I only saw him twice and on the 2nd time I bought him.
    For whatever reason that figure just didnt make it around the box-store circuit. Gears, his wave-mate has been almost equally as scarce. I think Gears may have been included in other waves, but I'm not sure. I've also only seen the Shadow Command ldr version of Megatron at 1 certain WalMart, but since he's a release at the end of the actual ROTF line, thats not so surprising.

    I dont see any of the stores around me getting that wave. They still have plenty of Mudflaps - both versions, to move before those 2 come around. By that time, the new lines will probably start to metriculate in. I think thats why I stll havent even seen HA Mudflap.

    I haven't seen the Shadow command Megatron, Red Rampage, Evac, Skystalker or HA Mudflap which sucks because I really wanted the latter 2.

    In my area, Jetfire seemed to hang around for a while. Skystalker and his accompanying wave-mates werent that hard to find either. I think thats because the stores didnt go as overboard with scout size figures like they did with deluxe and voyager guys.

    Ive given up on a retail find of HA Mudflap. I'll getting him online. I dont think I really have a choice.

    Mindwipe. I only have mine because of someone posting its location here.

    I haven't seen any new tranformers in my area in a few months either.

    I drove to the next county over from me to pick up Long Haul. I got the tip from a fellow board member as well. He didnt come around in my area for almost 6 wks.

    I've seen everything except HA Mudflap, Red Rampage, and Evac. Thankfully online shopping filled those blanks.

    Never seen HA Mudflap
    Saw Skystalker once, but I didn't have any money to get him :( 
    Evac & Red Rampage, but I don't care for Evac, and I got Rampage in Texas
    Jetfire got kinda scarce too

    Everything else I can find with a little searching.
