    I've been looking for this dude for about a month since I saw he was supposed to be released in January, but I haven't seen him anywhere around where I live (North Shore Massachusetts). I have been checking my local Walmart and Target like a crazy person, but to no avail. Is he just hard to find in my area, or is this problem happening elsewhere too?

    I've only seen him once so far... at K-Mart of all places. But none of the local Wal-Marts (4), Targets (3) or Toys R Us around me have even had Wave 1 yet, let alone Wave 2! K-Mart and Kohl's have been the only places to drop RTS figures in my area so far.

    I have never seen him at retail, but then I haven't seen any of the new waves at retail. Dunno if its poor distribution or scalpers who are on their game locally. I got sick of the hunt, but because of the hunt had missed out at online retailers so I ended up getting one off a board member. Still hoping to find another at retail sometime so he has one to ride, but I will definitely be prepared to preorder the Junkon repaint from BBTS when it comes out.

    This is why it's important to pay attention to the Sightings forum.

    At this point I'd keep checking Hasbro Toy Shop. From time to time they will restock Wreck-Gar, but you pretty much have to be on the site when it shows up or you're SOL.

    If it makes you feel any better, I haven't seen any of the new figures from either RTS or Generations. Well, that's not entirely true: I did come across Jazz and Tracks at a Kohl's a few days ago, but I didn't pick them up.

    Anyway, yeah, if anyone out there hasn't found any of the new stuff at retail by now, chances are that it's just not going to happen. I'll spare everyone my fanboy rant on the matter.

    Wreck-Gar and Scourge are the two figures that I've seen the least out of what actually has been showing up at retail. Just one sighting of each for me.

    I just found him myself at my local TRU. They just stocked RtS waves 1 and 2. First time I've seen them anywhere other then Kohl's and online.

    I've only seen him once at local retail. The only reason I got him there was the gentleman at Target who was keeping it for himself offered it up to me. Other than that, I've yet to see him anywhere else, but my state is usually a month or two behind everywhere else based on our distribution

    Reveal the shield has been pretty scarce at retail...
    So, either that, or he was shortpacked.

    Reading through this thread makes me feel bad about all the Wreck-Gars I've already seen at my local Target.

    They haven't restocked on them recently, though.
