    It's got to be a toss up between SpaceCase and HA Mudflap.

    I would have thought the "rarest" would be that Chevy Aveo exclusive, Swerve or whatever he was called.

    How about one from each movie line? Add Premium Blackout to that list.

    HA Mudflap was crazy hard to find. I've never seen one in person.

    Nope, the most expensive toy from the movie if you purchased it properly (it came free with a car IIRC).

    Right now, I'm guessing Costco Exclusive Battle Ops Bee, now going for crazy prices on Ebay. IIRC, got mine from Costco for around $50 shipped last year.

    Any HA figures other than Bumblebee and DOTM Skids are pretty much non-existent here.

    I would say Best Buy Exclusive Premium Ratchet. I actually stood in line outside Best Buy the day the first movie's DVD came out and purchased one of the only 4 they had in stock at the front of the store. To my knowledge, most stores only got a case or two and very few ever restocked. The Premium Voyager Megatron also available at Best Buy may also be as rare, but there didn't seem to be as much demand for him. I think they can both be found on eBay so "rare" is relative, but if we're talking rare at retail, I'd put them among the top 3.

    I think Skystalker is one,as I see that one going for $30 or $35+ on here for a MISB,on evilbay I bet its going for even more.People just seem to want him.I also managed to find only [1] one when they came out,and lucky I had the money then and I got it otherwise he probably woulda been gone if I had waited.

    I have also read on here that he was one of the last in the line,but the repaint of him as Sunstorm or whatever his name was was actually a major shelf warmer,as people hated those colors on him.Anyway I may be wrong but he might not be as rare as others from the movie line,but he could just be real popular.

    Sky Stalker. I'll gladly go out and get a Space Case here and trade it for a Sky Stalker.
