    I got my order in, number 52284. I wouldn't say that all people only want Windcharger in that group. I also wanted/needed Chopsaw and another Firetrap. Lets hope those preorders come in so I can cross RTS off as completed.

    I ordered a similar case off of BBTS and I'm happy that I did. Of course the main reason was to obtain Windcharger, but I'm real excited to get my hands on some other Scout sized figures. I frankly do not give them enough love in my collection.

    I think Classics needs more scouts. I say Brawn should be the next one.

    Got my Windcharger in yesterday. Nifty li'l bot, but his rub-sign is Decepticon instead of Autobot. That makes two RTS figures (the other is legends Trailcutter) that I've received now with the wrong faction label on them.

    Firetrap bears an eerie resemblance to Brawn.

    You do realize Windcharger and Chopsaw are wave mates with the old HFTD toys, right?

    I preordered. It's cheaper than buying an entire case and it works out to be $8 per figure before shipping.

    if you click the back button on the page linked up there you see they also sell the older scouts in pairs. they didn't do that for windcharger and chopsaw.

    example.... http://www.transformersclub.com/shop/index.cfm?ProductID=2233&do=detail&display=browsenext

    and look, here you can buy chopsaw for alot less....

    the jerks made sure getting windcharger was gonna hurt.

    2 toys at $16 = $8 per toy

    6 toys at $48 = $8 per toy

    I would hardly call TFCC jerks. They have to buy the figures in cases. Windcharger will sell like hot cakes at $8 or even double at $16. But the other case mates will sit there for a loooong time. By selling them as pairs or in cases, TFCC is just assuring themselves that they don't have to sit on unpopular figures. At least TFCC is selling 1 case. BBTS was selling double cases. Don't bring up how large stores like Walmart or Target sell individuals. They are huge companies who can afford to put shelfwarmers on clearance.

    I don't think that's a bad deal. I'll tell you one thing, it sure beats buying a whole case from BBTS.

    They are clearing out the excess inventory that is packed in the same case as the more desired figures. They are forced to buy these extra figures to get Windcharger, so it's either charge lots more for just Windcharger or charge a reasonable price for half a case's worth.

    There are some nice figures packed in there too: Firetrap, Sunspot, Breacher. Even if people have them all then hey, at least it's fodder for Toys for Tots. Or does Toys for Tots deserve a "fuck them" too?
