    I have been lucky enough to catch all the most wanted, sought after and popular figure in my area...but for my fellow collectors( minnesota) blurr has been diffucult to obtain...

    What is it in your area?....remember only @ retail ( but like I can prove that you didn't get it @ retail,lol)

    Blurr and Dirge were pretty tough to find for me.

    In before someone shows up to post "no current mass-release figure is actually hard to find or rare".

    Anyway, ones I couldn't find:

    - HA Mudflap - Never saw it at retail, got lucky and caught one on Amazon.
    - RotF Evac, Red Rampage - Never saw, wasn't really looking for them.
    - Generations Blurr, Dirge - They have been sighted in my area, but I just haven't lucked into them.

    Surprised that anyone had trouble finding red Rampage and Evac. I saw them all over the place earlier this year. : /

    But, I've definetly had trouble finding HA Mudflap. Never even seen one in person.

    Mudflap i never saw in person.
    Picked up a blurr at walmart... have only seen one since and it had major paint issues.
    Red Rampage I saw at Walgreens and passed it up. Didnt realize at the time that i would never see it again.

    The Wal*Mart Exclusive repaints of Hardhead, not-Skyjack, and Powerglide, but NO, my WM had to keep that damn wall of Movie Skywarps and Ramjets.

    *sigh* I'll pick them up someday, but I REALLY would have liked to have found them at retail.

    Blurr. Ran into him once. Got only Red Alert and Dirge. Decided to go back for him a week later, he was gone. Never saw him as again as of today.

    The last 6 months really drained my hunting urge, only saw one Red Rampage at retail (before they started hitting Ross), never saw HA Mudders (cousin got it for me in Canada for $15), never saw Evac till Ross (though I had no real interest). Glad I ordered Blurr, because I have yet to see him in retail, though I have not been stalking the stores as much. Still looking for him for a couple of local boardies.

    Considering I've never seen Evac, Red Rampage, or HA Mudflap at retail, I'll say them.

    HA Mudflap and Highbrow voyager class seems non-existance for me. This is becoming frustrating and discouraging to even drive out and hunt one down!

    I never saw Evac, Red Rampage or HA Mudflap. I didn't care about the first two and had to resort to eBay for Mudflap. Everything else has been around multiple times. I'm really fortunate enough to be able to find TFs in my area with minimal problems.

    Luckily you don't have to keep searching for Highbrow.

    TRANSFORMERS Voyager Class: HIGHBROW - Product Detail

    Free shipping on all orders to boot so you're just paying the same price you do at the store.

    I've never seen HA Mudflap, Blurr, Dirge, MP Grimlock, Animated Rodimus, ani. Ironhide. I haven't seen RTS in stores yet, either.
