    Went to a few Walmarts today that had finished their toy resets, each one had three pegs of Generations to the far right of the DOTM planograms. This wasn't a clearance of old stock kinda thing that Walmart does from time to time either, it was in the reset sheets and the pegs were stocked at more than one store.

    Generations IS being sold alongside DOTM.

    Yeah, I saw that, too. But being in Canada I just thought they were just going to release the waves they never put out. This is excellent.

    I figured the stores were just holding back. I've been seeing them (warpath wave) pop up in the last week or so. Even picked me up an extra wheeljack to mess around with for the leg mod :D

    Same thing at my WM, which was good to see as I still haven't seen some of the latest releases. There's hope. :)

    Guess that raises hope we might see more Generations figures announced at Botcon. I just hope they make it over to the UK.

    RTS finished as guard convoy said above me. There is a likelyhood they'll either be repackaged and sold under the DOTM Cyberverse stuff or just released as left over stock for store exclusives or clearance shops.
