    As I searched the isles at Toys R Us for Transformers (I got to pick out my Birthday Presents), I picked up Wheelie and Gelu (BIONICLE) and a Star Trek TOS Science Tricorder, and then I saw it. A 2007 Rescue Ratchet MISB. It was on the floor and came off a self with some other Movie figs (No Thundercracker, sadly). I got him, Wheelie, The Trek Tricorder and Gelu.

    The point is, This guy is still at retail, so look out for him, as well as Jetstorm, and some other ones I fail to remember.

    No one's going to "sue" you, but you do need to post things in the proper forums. If for nothing else, it saves the staff here some work :wink:

    So it's a shelfwarmer. How is that news?

    That, and it's an isolated single sighting.

    If everyone who sees old toys on a local store shelf reports it as news, the news would be cluttered with "Cybertron Mudflap still at TRU!", "saw Movie Swindle and Bonecrusher at Walmart today!" and so on.

    News is something NEW. Something that is different now from what was before (as in, not being there).

    A toy sitting on a store shelf for two years isn't a change. When do you think it became news? Today? Last week? Last year?
