    With Generations, Reveal the Shield, and Hunt for the Decepticons on their way out, just curious what figures everyone else had issues finding/never actually showed up. Now barring the obvious with the legends, scouts, and warpath and such, what figures/waves never popped up locally for you?

    I never saw Highbrow at retail/the Target I work at..not even sure we got that wave for certain. Same thing with any voyagers after blue Fallen and such, we pretty much were stuck with a ton of Ratchets and Seasprays the majority of the time. Never saw Lugnut and his wave as a result...and I REALLY wanted Lugnut.

    Pretty sure we managed our way through all the deluxe waves, even if we pretty much ended up with mostly shelfwarmers (Dear God we have so many Skullgrins) and the other waves never really popped up again. I got one of the only couple Wreck Gars I ever saw..not realizing that we had Scourge at the time (only had money for one, I already opened Wreck Gar, and it was a closing shift so no chance to return and buy the other). Never saw Scourge again after that.

    I never saw RTS beyond the deluxes or PCCs beyond Dinopope and Steamhammer. I haven't seen Warpath and co. either, but I'm fairly certain they'll make it here. Thankfully I managed to order most of what I needed off HTS, and I'm waiting on a Windcharger from a trade. If I can just get Heavytread I'll be satisfied.

    retail shelf wise, I never saw lugnut, grappel, strafe, windcharger, wreckgar, thundercracker, wheeljack or warpath.

    lugs and grappel I got on order, strafe I'll probably get once there's a hts sale. windcharger I really don't care about so I guess I escaped the madness there :lol 
    all the rest I ended up getting online or from local guys.

    Never saw the PCC Steamhammer, Spastic/Overrun, Grimstone, Undertow, Skyhammer, Heavy Tread, or Slavage; RTS Windcharger, Bodyblock, Downshift, Frenzy, Grapple, Lugnut, Strafe, or Deep Dive (luckily got three of the voyagers POL'd at BBTS); or Generations Wheeljack, Thundercracker, and Warpath (preordered on BBTS)

    Honorable mention: Wreck-Gar. Bought the only one I've ever seen.

    I completely forgot about the PCC.

    Only ever saw the wave 2 2-packs once then they were gone, all we've had of them outside of that were the repaint waves (for both the 2-packs and 5-packs) and the mudslinger 5-pack wave.

    Hell, I didn't even bother to look. The only figs I didn't get on BBTS this time round were the Cliffjumper Generations wave.

    The most recent new stuff I've seen is RtS Bumblebee and Optimus.

    They did a fair job of getting Generations out there, until the last five anyway.

    In hand, my area never saw RTS deluxe wave 2; HFTD Tomahawk & Terradive; PCC Heavytread, Skyhammer, Grimstone or Steamhammer; and ANYTHING of Generations after wave 1.

    At least we got every other RTS figure under the sun! :D

    I am pretty sure it is safe to assume Canada missed out on Wheeljack, Scourge, Kup, Warpath, Thundercracker, and Deep Dive.

    RtS Voyagers. The Scouts have appeared in TFAW here and a Japanese import store in the state got in the Legends.

    I've got all RtS Deluxes that I wanted in the stores, and I consider myself fortunate that I did.

    The only ones I, personally, never saw on any shelf in my travels are Lugnut, Grapple, Strafe, Deep Dive, Wheeljack, Thundercracker, Warpath, Wreck-Gar, and the tank Power Core guy.
