Are your stores still carrying Generations?

    It seems that all the stores in my area are only focusing on the movie line. Whatever Generations are on the pegs are the same ones that have been there already such as Red Alert, Dirge, Cyb Megatron and Soundwave. I asked everywhere if they will have new Generations in stock like Warpath, Wheeljack, and Thundercracker and all they said was they haven't heard of getting any of these. I'm looking all over for Wheeljack, Warpath and TC with no luck at all. With the movie line starting to fill up the empty spaces, it isn't every encouraging right now. Is this also happenning in your area as well? It's been a fristrating to say the least.

    Yes, they are. And the Generations you're looking for are starting to pop up now. Just keep your eyes open.

    Yes. A TRU here has just opened up a Warpath case, along side DOTM.

    The half dozen Targets and Walmarts I've been to all have at least 3 pegs for Generations in their planograms.

    A few?? HA! I wish I could say the same. This is all you find hanging on the pegs around here. Last store I visit they had at least 10-20 on pegs...

    Well I hope I see Wheeljack and Thundercracker. Kind of annoying how lots of places had the RTS stuff on clearance but not the Generations stuff RIGHT NEXT to the RTS figures.

    This is annoying? RTS was phased out while Generations is ongoing.

    Yep, three pegs dedicated to them. Granted, only ones there are Skullgrin, Red Alert and Thunderwing but still, they're there! It's encouraging. Hopefully Botcon will give us confirmation on whether or not the line really will continue alongside the ovie stuff. My hopes are pretty low, but my fingers are crossed :)

    Yes, they are. I found the Warpath case at TRU a week ago.

    They have condensed the Generations display down to three pegs at my local Wal-Mart and at the moment it's down to just some of the slower moving figures. It doesn't look like they are going to clearance out the figures any time soon so I'm thinking once some more room is made they might add the new waves I'm looking for.

    It takes so long for new waves to get to my area that it might be two months before I have to worry if Warpath, Wheeljack and Thundercracker will get stocked.

    There's definitely less homes for them, but my area still has plenty of old stock left (Drift, Red Alert, etc) and I doubt that it'll suddenly vanish (especially in the more expensive stores) once the movie stuff makes its way onto the floor.

    It's just that with all of the new stuff moving in, I wouldn't be surprised for the newer few waves to get passed over all together, and I guess that's what some people are worried about.
