well since we have a thread on which is the g1 shelfwarmer way back in the 80s. I figure its good to know who was the very hardest to find back then. So when you went to the toystore who the never there or always sold out. I remember that one christmas one old lady got killed at toysrus when people all roam in for transformers, when the doors opened. For me the htf g1 items that I wanted as a kid, but could not find was shockwave, blaster was pretty tough to find, believe it or not the insecticons, and jetfire didnt last too long. I only went to toyrus back then once a week. if they were sold out it would then be another week. as for shockwave, I never remember seeing him ever on the shelf.
