I've often read in TF forums all over the internet posted by the haters who despise Transformers Animated and anything to do with them. And I FREQUENTLY hear the argument that "the store shelves are lined with toys and no one is buying them. They are just taking up space and that's why Wal-Mart's marked the Deluxe toys down!" I beg to differ. My brother in Atlanta got Magnus today, so I stopped by after work to see if it was in. I must say beforehand, that the stores I go to stock the toys aisles EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. I got there and everything looks normal. It's 4 am in the morning and no crowds to fight with. The shelves are full of all the toys that are normally there. I make my way down the boys' stuff and get to the Transformers area... WIPED OUT!!! The ONLY toys in the entire toy dept. that was COMPLETELY raped. There were a couple of Ratchet Activators and a few torn open Deluxe Universe toys. I sneaked over to the end cap a few aisles down where I knew the TFA Deluxes had a display and it too was almost barren. There were VERY few toys left, mostly Ratchet and Blackarachnia and the Movie figures that weren't in the movies, like the Mirage repaint. I asked the majorly hot girl that works there every night (part of the perks of scoping out the toy dept that late... lol - just kidding) were they doing a reset on Transformers or were they just wiped out. She said they all sold out earlier that day... and I QUOTE - "EVER SINCE THE TRANSFORMERS 2 TRAILER CAME OUT, WE CAN'T KEEP THEM ON THE SHELVES." I KNOW this isn't true because it's not due until February, right? Did I miss something? Anyways, I thought maybe it was an isolated case... she was just crazy... HOT, but crazy. So I checked TWO other Wal-Marts and my local Target... ALL the same - completely void of Transformers. There were a couple of exclusives left like Springer and Ratbat, but the boxes looked like they'd been checked in a hockey game. So THERE GOES THAT lame theory from TFA-haters that the toys aren't selling good enough... it won't last... it's doomed to be canceled. I wouldn't count on it. I might find that theory a little more believable if there were no more live-action movies coming out.
