    is it just me or was this guy really hard to find?

    i had to go to 6 different places to pick him up.

    that said i was actually looking for jetfire, but still

    i ended up getting him and i really like him.


    ok, so my question being..... is this guy not as common as his wave buddies megatron and mixmaster?




    BTW i now have all Rotf main line toys from legends up. minus ironhide ratchet brawl and preview bee which are just repaints and little mods.

    I've seen him in a couple of places: Walmart and Target.

    But if I WAS looking for him, then he would be hard to find.

    I have yet to find him or Jetfire. I've been keeping an eye out for both, but no luck so far.

    I've only seen him twice in person where I live (South Seattle), but that's probably because the active collectors here and a certain scalper got to them before me. I have him, and he's grown on me for the most part. I wouldn't make him a priority to get in my opinion, though.

    What makes no sense here, is having a sighting's forum and some people not using it.

    I think he's only one per case. That's why he's seen so sparingly. Anytime I've seen him, its only been one.

    Shortpacked for now. Wait a bit and he will be everywhere.

    I haven't seen one yet. That said I ain't been looking for one either. This figure holds the least appeal for me from the entire ROTF line.

    well, i haven't really tried looking as you could order it on hts as they have it in stock with the code for free shipping. i wasn't really planning to get it, more like if i see it i'd get it. if not then oh well. so far i haven't seen it here, but my sis who lives in texas found one in a walmart so i had her buy it. i just have to wait a month or so till she visits cali.

    He's definitely less common in my area, although I'm starting to see a few more filter out onto the shelves than I have in the past few weeks.

    Yeah, I snagged him the day ROTF came out. Have only seen two since in the 10 or so stores I go to. He currently resides in his box, so I can't help ya with the "is he worth it" decision. I wanted him since we first got pictures of him.

    Same here. I got lucky and purchased a deluxe Fallen also. I have not seen a Fallen on the shelves since.

    A kid here in TRU Malaysia bought it when I passed on it yesterday. Not sure if I'll regret my decision now...

    The 2 TRU's that I go to (Boston) have them plenty in stock. I can't find a megatron for the life of me though. Go figure.
