    Just like the title of the thread says, Which TF animated figure has been the hardest to find and which one looks like the shelfwarmer?

    I was at the Walmart with my wife this weekend and it looks like there was a sea of Ratchets on the pegs with Blackarachnia running a close second. My pick would be Ratchet as the shelfwarmer.

    What have you seen after the first weekend? Which one is the hardest to find? and Which is the shelfwarmer thus far?

    I picked up Optimus and Bumblebee yesterday and there was only one left of each at my Wal Mart. So, I say Bumblebee and Optimus are the two leaders and Blackarachnia & Ratchet are the shelf warmers.

    i would say lugnut and grimlock are the hard ones to find. from what i hear stores right now have either only gotten none, or 1 or 2 cases of them. So thats only 4 each.

    ill say ratchet and blackarachnia will warm since they are the only 2 delux in wave 2, might be more of them laying around.

    In my area, Prime & BB; I had to leave town to find them.
    Also Lugnut, Grimlock, and the OP Megs two pack.
    Seemed to have tons of BA, Lugnut & Ratchets though

    Hardest to find is easy, Grimlock.

    As for shelfwarmers...well, when I picked up SS and Lockdown yesterday, they were the only ones of them they had (and they were out of Bulkhead, sadly), whereas there was an endcap full of Ratchet and Blackarachnia, and tons of the 2-pack.

    Grimmy and Lugz are definitely the hardest to find since I've only seen one each (Got Grimlock, passed on Lugnut).

    Everywhere I've gone that has had any Animated so far has been awash in the deluxes, so it's hard to tell because my Wally-Worlds have had a bunch of everybody. There's been plenty of 2-packs as well.

    It's the Voyager's that are scarce around here, but the only I've seen the most sitting around is Cyber-Megs.

    Grimlock and Bumblebee around here are the toughies, apparently. most other things are not particularly hard to find, with guys like Bulkhead, Ratchet, and the 2-pack being the easiest to find.
