    Some go overseas, some go to Ross/TJMaxx/Marshalls... It's a crapshoot.

    No, that's unsold stock.

    Cancelled stock doesn't exist.

    Some goes to stores like TJMaxx, while others are melted down by Hasbro and reformatted into new Bumblebee figures.

    I don't think there are many inctances of "canceled" toys still being made if the don't have a buyer locked in, especially not in large quantity. The only instance I can think of was the last wave of movie 1 target exclusive scouts showing in Asia but in limited quantities

    Most canceled items I can think of never hit production to my knowledge

    Like archon said, cancelled stock does not exist.

    The toys are made based on orders.

    if no retailers order it, it is not manufactured (see tail end of animated)

    stuff that retailers order, recieve, and do not sell is sold by them to other places, like TJ Maxx and Ross.

    Hasbro takes all of the cancelled toys/molds, builds a bonfire out of them and then the staff dances around it.

    Some unsold stuff gets sent overseas. I picked up some sweet 90s toys here last Christmas at my local supermarket.

    As has been mentioned, there's no such thing as cancelled stock.

    But there has been instances of where Hasbro has items already in production that are not ordered. Many different things can happen.

    1) They get sent to discounters. Ross/Marshalls/TJMaxxx (ex. RTS Grapple, Wreckgar)
    2) They get sent to Europe and Canada (TFP:FE, Animated Roadbuster, Europe Minicons 8-Pack)
    3) They get sold to onine retailers. BBTS or RK's "warehouse" finds could be their warehouse or could be Hasbro's.
    4) They waste away in the warehouse and get scrapped.
    5) They waste away in the warehouse but somehow find their way to retailers (unreleased TFTM scouts)
    6) They get repackaged. (Walmart PCC value pack)

    Lies. All leftover toys are reconstituted into more Bumblebees.

    Actually, it's the dance around the bonfire that magically turns all of that melted plastic into complete, packaged and shipped Bumblebees.
