First things first Hasbro will not shortpack any figure from this wave. They only do that to ry to sell what they perceive as the most popular figures in a wave. This is a combining unit with five equally important parts. it would be in their best interest financially to make the wave with equal distribution of all members. With that said I'm glad I won't be chasing these scout sized combining transformers. Some of you are gonna be ready to scream when these hit the shelves trying to locate them all. Hell, as it is the big box stores are watching their inventories closely because of the economy. Half the pegs in all three stores by my house are empty and have been for months. If I really wanted thee I would just buy the giftset. But keep in mind your gonna pay $80 for something that is just a hair taller than a PCC combiner. Easy pass on this one.
