    Spotted once at a TRU.
    Passed because I didn't have my card with me. Came back to the store, gone.

    How hard is it to find one at retail?

    Quillfire's been warming the pegs at the local Meijer for a few months now.

    Last I was in TRU I saw, what's his name, Scatterspike? The repaint.

    Umm I see him at Walmart and TrU still. Though the other porcupine robot is starting to replace him.

    Scatterspike.

    Bummer, I hadn't seen it before and of course it got bought before I returned to the store.

    Cool. I didn't know that. I prefer Scatterspike's color scheme over Quillfire's any day. I mean he looks great in the TV show, but as a toy, I personally feel something was lost in translation.

    TakTom's Quillfire looks much nicer IMO, but he's also pricier than Hasbro's version.

    So far though, except for Paralon, my Decepticons from the line are from TakTom.

    I haven't seen any Quillfire in the wild, saw Thunderhoof once. Ordered them off Hasbrotoyshop when they went up in April.

    I got the figure back during my Florida trip in June. Since that point I haven't seen it at all when I'm in the stores looking for new figures.

    Quillfire is still readily available in a lot of shops in the UK too... I don't suppose that's particularly helpful...
