    It seems the Movie line & Animated are getting great sales over here because we are seeing an influx of new items

    First of all, the big contest that i reported here http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-news-rumors/192413-transformers-entre-nosotros.html

    Second, over the last two months Ive seen in retail stores:

    Movie Line
    -Evolution of a Hero 2 pack (Classic Bee with a "push me to transform" sticker on the front window, is that included on the original 2 pack?)
    -Battle for the All spark legends 6 pack
    -Leader for the Ages 2 pack
    -All spark enhanced Figures (Brawl, Barricade & Bumblebee in cylindrical packages)
    -The US unreleased Turn-around (Barricade & Blackout, Jazz & Ratchet)
    - Premium Megatron (Dunno if PrimeĀ“s available)

    -A Walmart promo, with Deluxe 2 packs, just figures from later waves bubbled together, must be overstock though... they are randomly packaged but include 08 BB as well the Stealth repaint (i found set for both, looks cool), Overcast, Stockade, Jungle Bonecrusher & Salvage

    -Several TF related ads on toys stores, like a "This way to toy section" at Wally world with Animated Prime

    -To note is that several US exclusives were also released last year, like the Screen Battles dioramas and several Target Scouts)


    Animated
    So far, all Wave 1-3 are available if I'm not mistaken, including battle bumpers & Activators

    Universe
    -Legends wave 1
    -Deluxe wave 1 (Prowl, Sunstreaker & Tankor), all of em with generic international package and only Sunstreaker box art (ugh)
    -Voyager wave 1-2 (Dropshot, Heavy load, Blaster & Blades, yay!)
    -Ultra wave 1, just Onslaught & Powerglide
    -Robot Heroes wave 1


    I dont remember so many things released in my country like... EVER!

    Universe Acid Rain and Galvatron are available in too. There's also this sort of guerrilla-like advertising campaing, with flyers glued to posts and walls and blankets with the "Transformers Animated" logo all over here, in Monterrey.

    Yep. The camo Starscream classics repaint. Just got it 2 days ago at Wal-Mart, in Monterrey. Both Galvatron and Acid Rain have Acid Rain card art.
