    Nice way to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star wars. Not to beat you up but the TRU in Huntsville must have a problem with Star Wars not to mention Transformers.The 40th anniverary was handled badly. I saw pics from other store and though why can't I find these. On the subject of Trypticon what is the ETA on him?

    Good luck finding them now. From what I've read they are out of production and whatever stores have in inventory now is all they are getting. Not sure about TRU as I've never seen Wave 2 there, but Target just got their inventory and sold out immediately. Walmart's inventory is long gone. All e-tailers cancelled preorders that were set to deliver in September/October. Hasbro either underestimated demand or just don't GAF and want to move on to Last Jedi stuff......no excuse for the mishandling of this line! Completely sucks......

    Yeah. It's unfortunate. Again though, it's all down to how corporate views the store and not anyone at our store. I overheard the main store manager lamenting that he wished they would let us have more hours per week so we could have more people working at one time. And it would be really nice just to have more people to help. Make some noise and write something about it in the store reviews online. Corporate reads and responds to those complaints. I've gotten talked to the few times I've gotten bad reviews because corporate sees those and it reflects on everyone at the store. Just don't mention me lol.

    It's not the amount of workers you have to stock it's the fact that warehouse sends what they want where they want to.
    All of the "ordering" people think they do is either overwritten by management at store level or ignored by warehouse.

    Yes this. I was just saying that as an example of the troubles our store has in general. Also it's ignored at the warehouse level. I don't think we order anything at all. Our store managers would have to beg for extra cases and even then it wouldn't be a guarantee. At least that's what I understand to be the case.

    BTW we got in ML Guardians wave 2 and the Black series wave with the Snowtrooper, Ben Kenobi, and Sabine the other day. I bought the Rocket of the Guardians case but would part with Mantis' torso if anyone wants it. Also, think we're now out of Snowtroopers and Sabines. I think there are still some Bens and ANH Leias though.

    Yeah I was at TRU yesterday and they only had Leia left. Oh, if anyone needs Shuffler and Repubnus the Kroger on University and Jeff Rd had 3 of each.

    Bel-air Target had Topspin x2, Kup x2, and Perceptor X1 last night. I didn't see Quake or Krok and those are the ones I'm looking for.

    Attalla wm had all 4 of the samarui turtles and armored usagi.

    I left one Usagi and a couple of the samarui turtles.

    It seems the casual version isn't in this wave.

    Opelika Target has an Octone on the endcap. I'm guessing someone already grabbed the Blitzwing.

    TR Wave 5 Deluxes at the Hoover Target. They had 2 full sets, I bought 1.

    Also saw Trypticon at the Hoover TRU last night. They also had 4 sets of Chaos again. Finally got one!

    Happy Hunting!
