    Yeah, this was addressed before. Actually, I believe Dark Magnus posted a thread in here before the toy dept reset. But it is interesting that Target stores are actually putting up signs in the toy department

    I guess the movie toys are selling better than they expected.

    We've heard similar stuff about restocking dates a while ago. I personally don't care. Mainly becuase I don't have that many more Movie TF's to get for my collection (2 that I can think of at the moment). Also, in the long run, it's just toys, life will move on.

    Makes me wonder what they're going to do about some of the stores having G1 Jazz and Starscream, because I know my Target has them in the back.

    Meh... Ebay prices are dropping to cost+shipping for anything I'm looking for (some faster than others)... And I'm only looking for 4 more... 2 being Real Gears (that should have been out for a while now, but aren't selling locally so they won't be restocked)... The other 2 deluxes... Selling so fast they can't keep them on the shelves...

    I never thought I'd say this but for the first time, Transformers has the same scenario as the 93 Power Rangers:

    DROUGHT!

    For years Power Rangers has been the top boys brand. Could Transformers be far off in the years to come?

    I do hope we see the toys sooner than October, I will take this with a grain of salt till I hear anything more concrete.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Hasbro have been selling the things on Ebay to get more money out of us.

    It's the Target Exclusives that concern me-- as long as I can find G1 repaint Jazz, G1 repaint Starscream, and the Wave 3 Movie Scouts, I can hold off on the others-- I just wanna make sure I have those before they go away for good.

    I am glad I hunted most of wave one out on the day it came out and the rest the next weekend. I had a feeling this would happen! It is a shame that you can not even find the leader class warming shelves. They usually do! Even Ultimate Bumblee is flying off the shelves. He was hard to track down when I initially passed the 1st few times I saw him because the boxes were tattered.

    OH and my target today had the G1 SS repaint. About 4 of them. Nothing else though, they had even REMOVED the tag for Ultimate BB for some reason.

    Doubtfull. Hasbro & Takara haven't been recalling anything, it's just been Mattel (that's what I know anyways).

    That's exactly what I'm worried about as well. Air Raid just looks so neat, and I would give Elita-1 some consideration since she's got the Botcon head. Not to mention the two G1 repaints (and I'm not even one of those guys that must have every movie guy in G1 colors).
