Well, the only time I saw him was when I was really excited about Specialist Ratchet & Cyberfire Bee, AND was already spending a bunch on other stuff, so he was simply overlooked. I'll pick him up if I ever find him on sale, but yeah. The kids must have liked him too.

ROTF Skystalker. I didn't get him at the time then never saw him again! I was lucky enough to get him from a kind soul on these very forums eventually but damn was I kicking myself, he's now one of my favorite figures!

MP Grimlock, bought him and never saw it again. PCC Spast...I mean Over Run, saw about five on black Friday, and that was it ever. Classics Ironhide, I left it on the peg one night at a Target, and never saw it again. RotF leader Jetfire, saw him and bought on sight. It may have been the only one in town because I never saw him a gain anywhere...

Need to add classics ramjet, Grimlock, Jetfire, and mirage too...

OK last addition, RID Scourge. Saw one at a TRU and had it at the register, only to put it back because it rang up more than what the price tag said...

HA Mudflap. I saw one in a Walmart back when they first came out. Didn't get him. A month later I got HA Skids and wanted Mudflap and I had to have a Canadian member help me out...
