AoE Wave 2 voyagers: are they extremely rare?

Postby Spider5800 » Thu Aug 07, 2014 9:51 am

I have found a single Galvatron in stores in my area since the movie figures came out. I have yet to find a single Hound. Going price for Hound on Amazon is $35 :shock: . Meanwhile, tons of Whirls and Rhinox's in every store I go to warming shelves.

Are the second wave of movie voyagers extremely rare for some reason? And if so, why? It's one of the only named villains and probably the best new Autobot introduced in the movie, shouldn't Hasbro be churning them out like crazy?

Same situation here. I just broke down and bought Galvs on eBay. Perhaps w1 assortments have not sold out, and that's why.
Remember what happened with Beast Hunters voyagers, Wave 1 shelf warmed bad.

Welp, checked the Toys R' Us and the Target near me, and still the same situation. Checked Amazon tonight, and Hound is now over $40.

Awesome.

I saw Hound and Galvatron only once each in the Twin Cities area. I bought them on sight. Haven't seen them again on shelves since then.

Haven't seem much either.I assumed retailers ordered more of the other parts of the line than Generations.

Found these guys in late June, saw them once, bought them, never saw them again. I have a feeling they'll be everywhere in the fall and the conversation will shift to "Where's Slog and copter Drift?"

Just saw two Galvatrons sitting on the shelf at the Rosevill Target in Minnesota. Maybe they are finally starting to trickle in a little more frequently.
