    Not really news, but still cool.

    Most of the time banners like this reflect what the current line looks like(colors, style, etc) but this seems to mix RID/Movie colors with a cool insignia logos. I'd definetly buy a poster of it.

    Yep, I've noticed these too, but sadly, there's so few toys below them. Maybe by Christmas. :(

    The symbol part reminds me of QR codes, so I'm not really digging it. Same bland logo font that has been boring kids out of their minds for the past several years, too. I'd love to see what kind of market research they've done that leads them to think 'understated and colorless' is the way to go to attract kids.

    looks cool but I'd say if anything this is just a new generic logo and not a sign of any particular line.

    Mine still has a lot of the tr wave 1 and 2 deluxes that showed up for the $10 sale last year. They've started stuffing generic walformers all around them so Christmas is pretty much sorted already. So boring.

    Remember the days of Animated, CHUGs, and Movie toys taking up a glorious half an isle?

    Remember the days of Animated, CHUGs, and Movie figures always being in stock and distribution being pretty decent? Pepperidge Farm remembers.

    Walmart no longer stocks Transformers. Especially the Generations line. Instead of Transformers a DEAD SPACE banner would be more appropriate.

    Don\'t even try, Walmart. At my local store, transformers don\'t even get half a QUARTER of an isle, if that. :mad:

    Interesting, though I've disliked the updated labeling since 2014. I'm still hoping they are going to go back to basics with an evergreen branding versus the identity crisis it's been going through in recent years. I'm personally blasé with all of the lines Hasbro has been putting out.

    Most of the isles are barren except for misc RID and the same overpriced movie deluxes that have been out since May. And now that Star Wars is starting to flood the shelves for the next wave of The Farce Awakens: MaReySue Nostalgia's Revenge, they'll be fighting for more space.

    Nice, but I can care less about banners. All I ask is for Walmart's to actually STOCK UP ON TRANSFORMERS!!! Never seen Deluxe Squeaks, Hot Rod, Voyager Nitro, etc. No new Titans Returns figures past Hot Rod either.

    I noticed this as well. I even took a picture of it intending to post it here, but I was to lazy to get around to doing so! This is a much better picture than what my crappy phone took anyways. :D 

    I agree with you. I think my store had maybe one or two Nitros, but they were gone not long after I saw them without me having much of a chance to consider. :/

    I remember when Animated had a great logo, that was colorful, but also completely new.
