    Well, Nintendo, you had a good run. Time to pack it up and go home.

    Obviously, this indicates the movie was a total failure.

    Seems natural that the cheaper of the more popular toys would reach #1.

    Okay, now let's all be proud. This is clearly our doing.

    Yes, us... the adult fanboys.

    "Bumblebee" was the most searched for item in online searches? Notice they have a picture of Ultimate Bumblebee, but in the article it just says "Bumblebee"?

    Is this really a surprise considering how much trouble we've all been having finding that damn Concept Camaro edition of Bumblebee? How many times do you think fanboys have searched online for one, over and over and over and over again, contributing to these statistics. It's sure not the 6-year-olds making all those searches! :) 

    I think the lesson learned here is that Wii lost this battle because it committed the crime of actually making itself available, rather than packing itself in sparse case assortments. :)

    Just because the movie did well doesn't mean those who hated the designs, story, etc should change their minds. I didn't hate the movie, but I didn't see it more than once and really feel no need to watch it again. And I still think G1-closer designs could have been done, but Bay didn't want to or Hollywood just isn't trying(it's still amazing that the Wizard of Oz was made in the 30s and still has better effects than most modern films). The movie was personally acceptable in the end, nothing more.

    Payback is a bitch. This is exactly the opposite of what happened when the original NES came out.

    Damn, this is a good thing. Transformers top off Nintendo Wii! I'm thinking about buying a Wii myself... but then again I want a remote control Barricade too...

    Spoken like a true Sony fanboy, Don't be mad that nintendo came up with incredible motion sensing technology and makes the games super fun. It would be a shame if you actually got up off the couch to do something huh? If anyone thought transformers which are way cheaper and easier to find weren't going to be the number one toy you must be from another planet. I think it is pretty damn impressive that wii is anywhere near the top. Just got the zapper ten shades of awsome.

    Yep, it does. :lol 

    To Moonstreaker: If you don't like the Wii, you're obviously going to hate the fact that it's the number one system being bought out there. It's more desired than the 360 or your beloved PS3. Admit it, Nintendo will win this generation of video games.

    Anyway, I'm surprised Transformers are beating the Wii in shopping. That's just mind-blowing.

    Wow, I'm shocked how non-news worthy this really is. I guess anything will pass for news these days. Search results vary so much from one week to the next that its really not surprising that eventually Transformers given their popularity and rarity this year would top the list. I lol massively at all the comments that think something monumental has happened.

    Edit; this is commenting more on the status of the media and its effect on us rather than on our fandom.
