    Does anyone know when these two figures will finally hit mass retail? I emailed BBTS today, and they told me they are not planning to receive anymore of Windcharger. Why I do not know. Not only that why is HTS always out of stock? They make the figures, and they should have these figures always in stock...any insight would be great!

    Windcharger has been out for a while, IIRC. He's just hard to find. Give it a month or two and Im sure he'll be everywhere though.

    He's out in Canada and the UK but hasn't hit US retail yet. He's probably gonna hit any day now

    I hear ya InsaneGalvatron, but I only need one. What about Demolition Rumble? I cannot find any preorders on it, plus I cannot find any case assortments either. All I can find is the United one, but too steep for my tastes...

    Eh, BBTS still has a couple of the case assortment. $110, but for twelve scouts that's an okay price and it comes with two windchargers.

    The only problem is that the two Windchargers in that case are the only things in it I'm interested in. I'm not paying $109 for two scouts.

    Yeah, I want Windcharger just enough to be frustrated, not enough to be eager for a gouging. I should have preordered him (and Grapple and Warpath for that matter) on the TFCC store to get something like retail.

    I was worried about this happening with Windcharger given the fact that he's packed in a case with the same figures that have established themselves (save Breacher) as uber-pegwarmers since before X-Mas. I can see many, many stores not even getting the Windcharger case.

    I really regret not springing for him when BBTS had pre-orders available, but hopefully he'll end up as a "Ross exclusive" in a few months.

    As for Rumble, even though I bought the Perfect Effect figures, I have the United 2-pack pre-ordered with BBTS just to hedge my bets.

    Or he could show up, but both WCs sell and the rest of the case shelfwarms and he never restocks.

    Windcharger has been out in Europe for just under a month now. Plenty people have one.

    Always?

    Hasbro don't own Hasbro Toy Shop. It's run by another company. Poorly.



    Discussion of Frenzy in RTS is purely speculative at this point.

    No
    BBTS orders in full case quantities like every other retailer in the world. They will not order more of a wave of peg warmers, if it is even available, to get one new figure.
    did they ever have him in stock??
    No, HTS is still a retailer, They order their product from china and have it shipped here just like every retailer, again in case assortments. So were all waiting for scout wave 4:
    1x Insecticon
    2x Breacher
    2x Sunspot
    1x Firetrap
    2x Windcharger
    2x Chopsaw
    2x Backfire
    12 figures, 7 characters, two of them new but only one new mold in the whole wave. HTS the other 5 older scouts in stock and they aren't selling. Why would they order more if the ones they have aren't selling?

    I'm honestly amazed at the rarity of Windcharger States-side - I'm in a really shite area for TFs in the UK, and our local Wal-Mart had a ton of them shoved in a discount basket o.0
