We all know ROTF line was seriously over produced...do you think it will happen again with DOTM?
I would bet money on it
Yep. I think they do exactly what stores did with the Tron Legacy toys, order too many of them too soon.
Yeah there is pretty much no doubt.
Yup.I learned my lesson after ROTF.I'm only going to buy a few of the DOTM figures that I really want at full price.Then I'll wait for the eventual sale/clearance/discount store on any of the other figures that I might get.
I just hope they over order the Sentinel Prime and Ultimate Optimus Prime
Oh yeah it will happen.
I know they will....100 times over yes
Yep. Already from what we've seen and heard from what stores have proves it more.
And that make it kinda scary....like AutoBobby said few @ full price, rest on clearance...
Wave 2 will prolly pop up online first, like the recent patterns...
I'm going to wait on a majority of the figures to get clearance prices. I'm not interested in too many.
yup, the first wave will probably still have a fairly decent selection on shelves by christmas
Let me answer your question with another question: does G1 Megatron mass shift?
I see a ton of shelfwarming Jolts in our future.
Yes they will but 100x times more as Fishdirt said. And then we have shelfwarming wave 1 figures.
If it doesn't happen, I'll nominate Tuner Mudflap for the Botcon Hall of Fame next year.
This and in all likelyhood. :/
I don't know. Most retailers severely underestimated the popularity of the first movie's line and found themselves short on stock and on backorder.
Next movie comes around, they don't make the same mistake twice. Only they order too much and sit on the first 4 RotF waves for far too long and end up clearancing them out or selling stock to TJMaxx/Marshalls and Ross.
I would imagine that most retailers find some kind of middle-ground this time. But maybe I just expect too much of people. Better to have too much than not enough.
