    They are apart of their Black Friday ad but, some store have been putting them out early. It's looking like at least 10 per store.

    never heard of this store. So that means I probably don't have one in my area :(

    According to their store finder, the closest store for you is about a 21 hour drive to Rockford, IL.

    Just went to my local 5 Below and they had a whole wheelbarrow full of Scouts, including Windcharger and Chopsaw. Also had a bunch of RTS Legends. :D

    I want to remind everyone that what you are looking for is a wheelbarrow near the front of the store, filled with scouts.

    We have one here in Lancaster, PA.

    I'm going to buy them all up and sell them for $75 apiece.

    PROFIT.

    For those with a Five Below near them, If anyone would be kind enough to pick me up an extra Windcharger I would very much appreciate it!

    Some stores have a Wheelbarrel full of RTS Legends too. Not as rare, but for $3, I might get an extra Legends Prime to paint purple and an extra Starscream to paint as AM Thundercracker.

    Wow just wow...how dumb is this thread?

    the title should just read "Hey Scalpers: Here's where to find Windcharger...Now Go Get 'em"

    As a fandom we set ourselves up for disaster way too much...

    I think the big Windcharger-scalping thing is long over, nobody's willing to pay that now - anyone who was really desperate for one either:

    a) Caved in and paid scalper prices

    b) Got friends in the UK (where he was plentiful & cheap) to ship them over.

    ...Ya know, you could use the tip given to you by this dumb thread and get out to a Five Below and get your fill before the scalpers do.
