    He's not shelf-warming, at least not around here. I thought for sure he would, but I have only seen him one time (when I bought him) and he's out of stock at Walmart.com!

    WEIRD!!!

    He is around here. I've been seeing the same one for about a month now, I've been trying to work up the nerve to buy him, but I just can't. First alt I don't want.

    There are a few here at my Wal-Mart, but we are choking on Skidz and Sunstreakers (there have been about 11 cases opened... and an average of 7 are still on the shelves.

    Skids and Tracks seem to be the "big" shelf warmers here.

    Tracks would be the big shelf-warmer here.

    Amazing how you used to be able to sell a Tracks for $70-100 around here... I was so excited to have found one next to a Meister way back when.... Now every time I go into a store I see 10 sitting on the shelf. I almost want to buy one out of principle... lol

    I've seen Rollbar a few times, but they're usually buried under a mountain of Tracks, Skids and Sunstreakers

    I haven't seen many either, but I think it's due to over ordering of the first Skids/Sunny wave. There's two Sunny's sitting in my Target and they've been there for ages now.

    Rollbar is also full price at the club store, while Ricochet is getting the sale price. I've only seen Rollbar a few times as well.

    In my opinion this is a good thing. I would hate to see this guy clogging the shelves and preventing Alt Prime, Mirage etc. from coming out.

    I have a bad feeling that eventually Rollbar will start hogging space either because of the current Prime asst. or that the previous asst. are stacked up somewhere in a warehouse.

    I still need to get Sunstreaker.

    But I'm avoiding Rollbar and Ricochet

    All the alts were warming the shelf here. Now all they have left are 4 Tracks. Hopefully Mirage and Prime will show up soon.

    Around me all the bubble waves are not moving...I still have a lot, even Prowl! The worst one by far is tracks though....to think I still have one sealed in a red box and an opened red box one :(  I should have sold it! I am never going to see alt prime or mirage here until at least August at this rate! I have seen rollie and ricochet way to much, and to think I was excited when I 1st found them, now they will not go away!

    Yep, he's the one I see the least too.
    Seeing lots of Tracks, Skids (& Sunstreakers lately) and only a few Ricochets here n there , but rarely spotted any Rollbars.

    Am now glad for picking him up at first site.

    Yeah..i've noticed that pretty much all the new alts are starting to shelfwarm (the exception being Prime...haven't even seen him yet).
    I still just flat out refuse to pick up Rollbar due to there not even being the slighted amount of him remolded at all.
    However I am tempted to pick up a Blue Tracks, since the only one I have is a yellow testshot version of him.
    Still haven't been able to bring myself to pick it up yet.

    I've seen him a few times up here, but I think it's too soon to call him a shelfwarmer.

    I actually really like Rolly... I'd prefer it if he were a titch darker red and named Red Alert or Inferno, but he's not a bad Alt. If only I had waited until I saw him and Riccy in stores... so long $$28 in online prices and shipping :banghead:
