    Does anyone else think bumblebee is kinda on the hard to find side in the animated line.I was at my local walmart and they had 4 I picked up one.Later on that week my dad had to go grocrey shoppin well I had to since hes handi and my mom is still in the hostpital and I checked up on the tfa and all the bumblebees we're gone.Also on autobot rachet He seems to be a little longer than the show ver. Also I thinkthe lack of detail has something to do with his shelf warming status.Thoes tools really turn me off on that figure.

    Ratchet, BA, and (kinda) Lockdown are the shelfwarmers here. I've seen more Primes than BBs and more BBs than Prowls, making Prowl the hot item here.

    As for Voyagers... Wave 1 is shelfwarming, wave 2-3 can't be found.

    This is why i bought Animated BB First cause he'd be a pain in the ass like the CC Camro BB last year.

    Until today had only seen him once before, and passed on him to grab Voyager Prime instead.

    Saw him twice today, one at Target, which I purchased, and one at Walmart, which I obviously passed on.

    Still no Grimlock though, who, minus the rumored to be available wave 3 deluxes and leaders, is the only figure I need that is out at US retail.

    Bumblebee was hard to find here in Milwaukee, so was Grimlock. I finally got them both last week.

    Guess this means TF toys don't sell as well here, coz i don't have a problem finding ANY of them. The shelves are full of all the available figures, especially Cyb. Prime and V Bulkhead.

    Figures that were available in my area today (Staten Island, NYC),

    Deluxes:
    Cybertron Prime x8, Prowl x5, Bumblebee x8, Lockdown x10,

    Voyagers:
    Cybertron Megatron x3, Starscream x5 Bulkhead x3

    None of the BA's, Ratchets, Or Grimlocks...

    Most of the TF space is still clogged with TFTM figures... I never thought the original Concept BB would end up a Shelfwarmer...

    It isnt an issue of rarity. Hasbro shipped out different waves to different retailers. Some stores got wave 1, some wave 2, and some are now getting wave 3. So depending on when product was shipped to your area has a lot to do with whats on your shelves. It's the same with the voyagers, some targets got the 1.5 wave while my toyrus got only grimlock and lugnut.

    People always want to to through words like pegwarmer and rare around so quickly its silly.

    Also keep in mind I really doubt hasbro is going to change its strategy that it used for the movie deluxes. If you recall hasbro relesed the first 3 waves of movies toys and then started shipping the first wave again. I bet there will be plenty of cyb primes, yellow BBs, and Prowls on shelves for xmas

    Weird, I've seen a fair share of BB, I just keep passing on him. I'm saving my beans for when I finally find Wave 2 stuff (hello Jazz and Soundwave)
