    Just wait a few weeks. You'll most likely be saturated with them. I haven't seen one myself.

    Exactly---after the first "batch" clears out, you'll probably see nothing but the darker ones.

    My TRU was almost all out of deluxes.

    My guess is that the changes to Sideways and Skidz were made to fix production errors and/or make them more accurate, and thus the light colored, toothless toys will turn out to be the rareties in the long run.

    Wait is the dark Sideways the rare one? I've seen nothing but the dark one in my area.

    I've seen them at HEB, our local (state-wide) grocery store chain.

    My KMart has a ton of SoundWaves. Then again, they haven't had a paying customer in ten years.

    No not rare. It's a running change that was made to the figure. The light colored one was produced first (as is the case with Breakaway), then changed to the darker version.

    For the most part, taking in all the sightings, there seems to be plenty of both around the country. It's just one of those things that while one store might have it, the other will not type of scenario.

    This same scenario is also happening with these two as well (although, in my area, Rampage is readily available in all stores). Soundwave turns up in tons at one spot, but never seen in another.
