    BW Cheetor. (not reissue)

    ALT Mirage, Skidz, Smokescreen and Hound.

    Trust me, Thunderblast is nothing special, the only thing she has going for her is the fact that she's a girl. I repainted/retooled mine into Nightbird from G1.

    Nope.
    It was rather the other way they where clogging the shelves.
    But all of a sudden they all mysteriusly dissapeared :confused:  Without a trace just a month after I bought mine. Most overstocked TFs last for maybe six months here (since the TF collector community ain't that big here and they're so damn expensive)

    Alts Decepticharge and Swerve are the only I've only seen once bought. The only other one I've seen a single time was Energon Ultra Magnus but I didnt buy him.

    Happens all the time for me, possibly because I live in such a minor town within easy commuting distance of London (so most stuff is easily to get there rather than here).

    - BM Blackarachnia
    - BM Thrust
    - RiD Super Car Bros Side Burn and X Brawn (there were two of Prowl),
    - Takara Sixshot reissue (not sure if he counts, an import shop had one in one time, I grabbed him and they never got any more. Lucky!)
    Armada was pretty good, although I only ever heard of Skywarp and Overload being in store the once.
    - Energon Bulkhead, Mirage, Shockblast and a whole slew of others got really limited releases - I think the majority of the later line toys were only shipped in small numbers, so basically anything beyond the first wave (or Energon Strongarm in the basics) I only ever saw the once.
    - Cybertron - Hot Shot and Thundercracker only graced the shelves here briefly, in fact right the way up until Override GTS and Exelion I didn't see any Deluxes or any others locally. Actually, those were the only two Deluxes I ever saw, though Landmine made an appearance. I never saw any of the other Deluxes, its like they all fell into a black hole down my way. Basics were well represented, though. I only saw the one Quickmix in stores before Christmas, too.

    So far, Classics has been quite good. Nothing too hard to find, though I doubt I'll ever see the second wave of Deluxes on store shelves.

    All the "rare" Universe figures before the long hiatus and the release of the final-wave quartet (Blastcharge, etc). I only saw one each of Nemesis Strika, Swerve, Fireflight, and Air Raid/Wind Sheer, bought Swerve and Fireflight, and the rest disappeared within a week. Taking Soundwave/Space Case and Magma Stampede/Stockade with them! :(

    Alt Wheeljack, and E Beachcomber come to mind. I don't remember if I saw another E Dreadwing after I got mine, or not. I've seen other Cl Grimlocks, but not many. Haven't seen another Ti Jetfire since I got mine, either.

    Haven't seen many Cl Megatrons. I was pretty surprised, the last time I saw one on a shelf.

    Thunderblast? She was warming pegs for months, around here.
