    Is there anyone else out there having a hard time finding him? I can't find him anywhere and if he is on ebay he is an arm and a leg. Is hasbro going to make more of him? Thanks in advance on replies.

    If you think that is hard, try finding him when the shops in your country are already winding down the line ready for RotF. He's the only toy released right now that I'm looking for. Though a Cliffjumper might be nice.

    See I have this feeling he is going to be that rare last of the line figure because they are winding down and getting ready for the movie line. If they do release arcee,wingblade prime,hydro dive bumblebee,rodimus, and blackout I wouldn't pass them up because you may not see them again. Thats why I grabbed the first waspinator I saw, which I have only saw two of since.

    He has been kinda tough to find here in Oregon for some of the other members of our sightings forum, but I think everyone has eventually got one.

    I saw two at the Target right down the street from me yesterday.

    He's not in the current case assortment.

    1x Blitzwing
    1x Grimlock
    1x Optimus Prime
    1x Shockwave

    He should be in the next revision.

    actually a bit ago I saw him at my local walmart in dundalk md, if you are referring to the activators one. I wasn't collecting them though so i didn't pick him up and i didn't know he was rare. as far as Wreckgar, got him yesterday too at that same walmart. don't know why he's taking so long everywhere else though.

    most of the stores around me still have voyager class shelf warmers clogging up the shelves, the trick to finding wreckgar is to find a store that doesnt have many voyager class on the shelves, and then check them on a regular basis and hope u get there a reasonable time after they put them out, wreck gars havent been staying on the shelves for very long. i have missed him twice with the atomic lugnut being on the shelf all by him self. but i have managed to find two of them over the last 2 months, one for me and one for a fellow collector.

    I'm glad I bought mine through BBTS. This searching through retail crap wears thin, quickly.
