    Where is this guy? I've been waiting for him to stock at the usual places, but nothing. Anyone know if Hasbro is going to be releasing this awesome dude soon?

    He's been out for a few weeks now in the UK (and had the shit scalped out of him to boot!)

    Has he really not been released in the US yet..? :confused:

    Sitting on my dining room table. :p 

    Honestly, I think he's finally been showing up at online retailers but distribution between chain retailers is still slow. I just got mine off of ebay after getting fed up of not finding him anywhere.

    I will wait until late April before I worry about this guy. He has not even made it to HTS yet and most of the retails stores are still trying to unload old stock. Until that happens no new orders will be placed with Hasbro to fill with new merch.

    Yeah I've seen pretty much every new deluxe at retail with the exception of Wreckgar, but I have not seen Wincharger.

    He got released over here, but there's only 2 per wave, and most places didn't seem to get that wave, so he's in pretty short supply.

    Maybe a few more will be packed in with the Rumble wave or the Frenzy wave or whatever they have next.

    I don't see it now, but I know it had been available as a pre-order, in a pair with another older scout figure from the case assortment.

    Short packed on purpose so the designers have a reason to tell the bosses @ hasbro there is such a high demand for him, we have to make a deluxe or HA version of him......
    (Secretly hoping that is true,lol)
