    Scary. I guess it shows that non-screen characters with a lame gimmick don't sell a line to kids.

    I friggin hope so, every store around me that carries transformers is soooooo overstocked with them. They havent moved in months other than the new Ultimate Optimus's that came in. We still have 8 first wave Large Human Alliance bumble bees from the day one stocking in. I will never see anything new here =/

    I saw some DotM figures at discount stores at launch. Big Lots specifically... they were not at discounted prices though.

    Depends on what the quality is.

    If that was the only one, I'd almost think that someone who got it as a gift returned it without a receipt for credit and priced it the same as the similarly sized stuff that they do regularly carry. I only think that because the sticker isn't usually right on top of the UPC, which is where a store would place a barcode tab for an item whose UPC wouldn't scan. Just a possible explanation if others don't show up.

    If these are showing up all over, I can't say I'm too surprised. DOTM stuff seems to be doing well around here but for whatever reason, TRU seems to have overordered the wave 1 HA basics to the point that wave 2 hasn't shown up yet.

    Those HA Basics, much like their spiritual predecessors the PCC 2-packs, just don't move from the shelves, it seems.

    I'm not surprised if the Basic Human Alliance toys are shelf warming. Their vehicle modes are OK but most of them don't exactly have dynamic robot modes. Only two of them have impressed me right when I look at the packaging. If I were to buy them now, the only reason I would get them is because I already own almost every other DOTM toy on the shelves.

    its a shame really as the ha basics seem to be the highlight of the movie line for me at least.
