This isn't important at all. But I do alot of walking, and I think when I walk. And I was wondering to myself, what if Walmart and Target didn't get the first shipments of Transformers because of last years ROTF release date debacle. I remember last year, Walmart released the ROTF toys a day early, then Target not wanting to get left out, sent memos to all stores to release theirs that Friday as well. If I remember, TRU didn't release theirs until Saturday, the actual release date. So I wonder if Hasbro deliberately held back stock from Target and Walmart by a week or two. I don't know how distribution centers for the stores get product from Hasbro. Wether it's straight from China or from Hasbro's warehouses. I don't really care one way or another, I will get my new toys when they come. I just always think about stupid stuff like this as a puzzle that I try to figure out. For the most part there is probably no reason for it whatsoever, but who knows.
