Was able to get myself the new Turtle figures, no Bebop set but am still happy to at least get the 4 turtles. Lucked out finding them, one set was placed in the clearance section (not clearanced though), while the other was just stuck into a random spot in the boys section.

Baxter, absolutely!
I’m also voting for Traag/ Rock Soldier combo or Triceraton/Fugitoid combo. I like army building rock soldiers and Triceratons

I thought about General Tragg and I wondered if Lt Granitor or a generic rock soldier. Granitor gets more attention that I suspected since he made a single appearance, but the games and IDW.

No, Playmates did make the character as a toy however and took quite the liberty with him making him gold instead of silver. Rex-1, inspired by Robocop that was out during this time was an experiment by the NYPD. A robot from the future called M.A.C.C. appeared as well one time.

That NECA Slash is the toy you always wanted for that character.... Actually all of the NECA toys in this line are that. -shrugs-
Thatís so weird. The original Slash was abundant at the store where I lived back in the day. Maybe the Zellers near me got extra shipments?

I think the mental algebra we do for this sometimes omits a lot of the necessary combined information. For example, there are a lot of factors: back then I was a kid so getting around meant doing it on your bike or being driven. It also meant having a smaller footprint to shop based on your ability to get places. For me it was TRU or weekend trips to Kay-B at the mall with some friends.

And so when you combine distribution, with popularity of a figure, with accessibility as a kid, with shopping options within that accessible area; you have a more accurate picture of how a toy could be hard to find back then beyond today's mental algebra regarding "case ratio".

This as opposed to nowadays where for example, the NECA Turtles are "hard to find", but "hard to find" now means that I get in my car and go to as many Targets we want to find them and at any time we choose to do so, versus going to a single store repeatedly across a month and only on weekends.
