    I think I saw Universe Inferno at BigBadToyStore, not sure though. I always wanted Tigatron when Beast Wars was on, but could never find him.

    Of recent lines:

    Classics: Devastator - finally got him just a couple of months ago. :) 

    Movie 1: Ironhide. He was pretty much impossible to find in the UK. :( 

    Universe: Unicron - missed out on him first time around as I wasn't into collecting during the Armada epoch.

    Animated: Show colours Ultra Magnus. Thanks for that, Hasbro UK...

    for me it's Animated Wreck Gar. I still have hopes he will show up in Canada since Universe Inferno is starting to show up!

    Ebay:
    Didn't realize he hadn't shown up there yet or I would have picked up the ones I saw when TRU had the half-off sale. He started reappearing with the Vector Primes at TRU in the US. I might still be able to find him for $22-$23+tax.

    Universe Treadbolt and Animated Swoop have been elusive for me, but without a car or a desire to pay shipping from online my search area is limited to a Wal-Mart and a Zellers.

    There were quite a couple of toys from the 07 movie-line that I want but can't seem to find them anywhere -- Landmine and Fracture.

    All the online retailers are practically sold out of Universe Classics/Henkei Red Alert and Ratchet, and I really would like to get them.

    That's about it for elusive TF figures.

    I never saw Fracture from the '07 movie line in stores. Scores of her repaint wave-mates, but no Fracture. Ended up buying her MISB for $17shipped. And I never saw Universe Inferno, but I haven't been to TRU in a while, where I've heard he's been popping up lately.

    With the exceptions of Alternators, Titanium, and MP Starscream, I never have had a problem finding Transformers. Thanks Hasbro for making your products so easy to find!

    Edit: I want to add an exception for 07 Movie Bumblebee, but that was more scalpers than distribution.

    That's exactly what I thought, until I noticed some kid asking his mom where the "Twansforma" was.
