    This thread is a poll to see where folk got their Windcharger from as an attempt to assess the amount that have come through the Ross outlet, the online sellers, and so on.

    I'm not a marketer and am not associated with any of the stores. I doubt this poll will be anywhere close to a proper one so I doubt it will mean much to those entities.

    EDIT: No judgment here on how you got your WC! (unless you single-handidly hijacked a China-US shipment that prevented it from appearing in mass retail at WM/Target/TRU ;) )

    Canada
    UK
    Europe
    Other int'l (specify)

    Marshall's

    While I'm still ashamed of paying $50 for a scout, at least I didn't have to run around Women's Discount Clothing stores in vain for days.

    sorry -- I made this a public poll -- can a mod please remove that option?

    I got my WC from a UK member.

    I made a few trades and they may have all been UK but i'm not 100% positive. So i chose europe.

    Also split a case with another member. Wish there was multiple options lol.

    In vain, maybe. I know a lot of people have found great deals. Hopefully the type of store doesnt actually bother you.

    Bought it at Walmart Laval. 9.92$ retail + plus tax. no rebates at the time.

    wish you actually put walmart and zellers there too. voted "other retail" since i got confused with your poll. i didn't get mine from a friend. got it directly at a retail store. the toy is not worth 9.92$ + plus tax. this toy should have been a pegwarmer if not for the poor distribution. what an ugly toy it is. bought it for the sake of having it for now until i get a better windcharger.

    Haha. Good point. I know i ordered a warpath case because I was tired of wasting gas. Then gas went down quite a bit (50 cents but has went up a bit lately). I keep telling myself i saved money even tho i'm out looking 2 or so times a week now.

    I know how you feel my neighbor to the north, though if I ever find any, I'll see if I can pass one along at cost, plus the shipping

    I got mine from a forum member stateside, that I believe(not 100% sure) got it from another forum member in Europe.
    I didn't see that option in the poll. lol

    Absolutely LOVE the figure though, well worth getting at any reasonable price IMO.

    Ross. The only one I've ever seen, and the 2nd one I went to while looking for one.

    I feel incredibly lucky.

    I made a trade with another member on TFW for one. They were in America and it came on the multilingual card - I assumed it came from Canada originally but honestly don't know.
