Let us weep that we shall never own our Lord and Savior, Reveal the Shield Windcharger.

No, just IMPOSSIBLE to find in the U.S.! The case assortment is two Windchargers, 8 of everyone else that's already warming Scout pegs. I just hope they manage to move on to the cases with Rumble, Downshift, Bodyblock and other new RtS Scouts before Dark of the Moon comes out.

Actually, all of Reveal the Shield except Mindset and that Rodimus/Cyclonus two-pack with the comic and Matrix is crazily rare. I've seen Jazz and Tracks maybe 3 times, Fallback once (Got 'im), Laser Prime twice (Mine and Trans's), Perceptor once (Trans's, I have United Percy), and Bumblebee a handful of times. (Got 'im, Moviebee colors are nice). I got Lugnut from BBTS. Still haven't seen Grapple, and am holding out for the Hasbro version, since I don't like Takara's orange-headed one.

It's because the first wave or two of the Gold Boxed Movie deluxes, basics and Voyagers were so over-ordered. And even the later waves of those are scarce, like the Voyager wave with Highbrow and the Fallen with removable face.

I finally just ordered the RtS G1 style Scouts (Megs, Goldbug, Prime, Prowl, Trailbreaker and Starscream) from BBTS. Burned with the last round of G1 Legends (Cosmos, Wheelie, et al), not happening again!

Lame... I'd complain about such but I rarely go looking for such &, when I do, it's only like 1 or 2 stores. :p Though I sometimes find things when they're putting out the last of it from the back. Thus how I got Animated Blurr & WFC OP.

The RtS scouts may have been cancelled; if so I am sure Hasbro can arrange a Rumble/Frenzy 2 pack at some point. I am supposed to be getting the United versions *from* Japan.

Apparently these and the Voyagers (Lugnut, etc) have never been seen in the U.S. (my Lugnut is from BBTS).I also got Strafe, Deep Dive and Chopsaw from them. I can get United Grapple.

So that leaves...Windcharger. Abundant overseas.

Best hope may be Hasbro repaints em, or they come through Ross, TJ Maxx or Marshalls, ala HA Mudflap.

Breakthrough? I heard Windchargers were common in the UK, so I have asked an English fan friend to keep an eye out for them. Good man!

I ordered a case of the assortment at BBTS, and my preorder was just filled. So since there's 2 of each per case, I will have a spare Windcharger & Chopsaw in case anyone's interested.

Give it to Mutate/Transypoo/Acey/whatever he's called nowadays! :happy4: Unless you want money for it because, as he said: He's broke. ::\

The shipping on a figure of that size iirc aint much... Like 5 bucks? Something like that.

I would buy the Windcharger for sure! Just like the old days.

Chopsaw I already have coming. We share TFs between houses enough that sometimes one of each is fine, I think. I have asked my friend to still grab a spare for Transypoo if he comes across one (We have a system, I buy him toys, he buys me food...and really, I would just buy people stuff, so the food is not a big deal.

No, no, I'm saying that I would just buy you stuff anyway, I just want you to feel like it's an even deal!

...damn, I admitted it.
