    We're hearing now that it's November before stores will receive restocks. Also, note that on the new Transformers sets up for pre-order, BBTS has put the warning that Hasbro has told them they may not be able to fill all orders. That's reassuring. Movie toys will ALWAYS be rare.

    I just hope we hit a point where they can catch up from this. If they hold the movie toys too long and then toss them out right before Animated hits, it's going to be a giant bomb of suck. Kids won't be wanting movie toys, and Animated will be sitting in warehouses because the shelves will be full of movie toys.

    Can you imagine how much money Hasbro could be swimming in this year had they been able to follow through on demand for the movie toys? It's frightening that it's been almost two months since we've seen stores well stocked, and it sounds like it could be two more before stock starts returning. That's just a frighteningly long time for store shelves to be empty, especially when you consider demand is darned near at an all-time high. It's just plain crazy.

    When did the Battle Unicorns get sent up to $10 again? I thought they wanted to get rid of them, but that price certainly won't do it!

    I'm hovering over the preorder button for the Screen Battle packs. If they're listing for $24.99+ a piece here, that mean retail's gotta be no more than $15-20. But with the whacked distribution around here and the gas I would spend driving around... :/

    Battle packs just aren't worth that much for the background and some few little human toys, unless I use my other toys for gifts to the nephews...hmmm
