    her wave shipped out well over a year ago.

    so yes, she's rare now. she was plentiful when animated was still mass-retail.

    HAHA no it's definitely not rare. Animated Blackarachnia was peg warming for a looong time. There were always tons of her on the pegs. But that was back when Animated was still going. I'm sure most have been sold since then. Definitely not rare though.

    good luck. you are prob not going to find this at retail. although i have seen one warming a peg at my local walgreens. you could try those or cvs pharmacies.

    She was one of the leading Animated pegwarmers around here; I don't think I've seen one around in a little while though.

    Well, wave seven (electrostatic soundwave and freeway jazz) shipped about 4 months ago, and the TRU exclusive Arcee/Cybertronian Ratchet wave originally showed up 2 months ago, but it can hardly be said to be fully saturated right now. There's a few more in the pipeline, but no details about release are known as of yet.

    She was very common when Animated was at mass retail, but now, she's almost impossible to find, at retail at least.

    You can still find her here occassionally at discount stores and liquidation, along with poor ratchet.

    I've been seeing some really early waves of animated stuff popping up at my local walmart too (probably leftover stock thats been sitting in a warehouse for a while), so maybe she'll pop up again, but don't bet on it.

    I just saw her tonight at Target. Easily one of the shelfwarmiest figures in the whole line. Retail might be a long shot, but not rare, and definitely not hard to find. Online is your best bet.

    Helpful hint: put a "wanted" into the Junkion on our awesome site. You might even find one on there now...

    I noticed a local discount chain get in a bunch of old Animated deluxes (that's how I rectified my mistake of not getting the original Soundwave). Maybe that's going to happen over where you are.

    HTS still has them on their site, and there are plenty in the Walmarts around me. In fact, i just bought a second one I found on sale at a Walmart for $5.

    Check the junkion exchange on this site. There are a few people getting rid of Animated stuff along with other things so I'm sure you'll eventually find one.

    EDIT: And boom. Right on the first page I went digging and found one. I won't post the link because that's basically promoting a sales thread that isn't mine and probably a no no on this site. PM if you want to know who. =P

    His location says UK, and i'm assuming you're in the US.

    IE: Shipping will probably = more than the toy.


    BA isn't remotely rare. It's just pretty much past it's retail cycle.
    Modicum of effort and you should have no trouble finding one for around retail.
