    Still seeing Bumblebee action figures in stores

    Even the new action figure line for Transformers Prime. Walmart had way too much Bumblebee figures for both Dark of the Moon and Transformers Prime earlier today.

    I told you so stores are still pegwarming with too many Bumblebee figures.

    A hobby shop in our country sells the TFP RID Vehicon at SRP, but you have to get 2 other TFP RID that are not in demand (i.e. excluding Starscream and Arcee, all the rest are available). Not a bad deal if you ask me, especially if you're looking to complete you TFP RID Deluxes.

    My area isn't affected by the yellow swarm at the moment. Hell, I only see one Bumblebee at each store in my area nowadays!

    Varies from region to region, broski. Hell, varies from store to store. My local haunts range from one or two Bees, to a moderate sprinkling of Bees with other figures, to one store that only has Bees.

    Go elsewhere if you can. Widen the net if it's possible for you. Bees are still a bit more prevalent, but not everywhere.

    In our country, TFP FE Bees shelfwarmed for several months(around 5-6), but now are dwindling without being on clearance, so there's a chance TFP RID Bumblebee will eventually disappear from the shelves.

    If only, if ONLY Hot Rod/Rodimus was in Bee's place. I would NEVER have a problem with a red/yellow swarm

    I went to an out-of-town Wal*Mart a couple weeks back.

    All of the deluxes were gone, even the Bumblebees.

    I have had it with these goddamn Bumblebees in these goddamn stores.

    Everyone says that Hasbro makes a fuckton of BB's for teh kiddehs.

    Well let me tell you a tale. A recent tale.'

    Earlier today, I went to Kohl's to look for some RTS figures. My Kohl's is a little on the late side and stocks older figures like in '10 they still had Universe stuff. I headed to the toy section and there I saw a little boy no older than 10 looking at the TF's with who I assumed was his dad. Obviously, there was nothing but DOTM Bumblee's on the pegs and the kid said to his dad, "Daddy, where's Wheeljack an' Arcee?". "Well, I guess they don't have 'em today bud" the father said back. They both walked out of the aisle and the kid had a pretty sad look on his face.

    I am not making this up. Face it Hasbro, NOBODY WANTS BUMBLEBEE. EVEN THE KIDS DON'T WANT HIM ANYMORE. He sold fine during the first two movies and Animated, but come DOTM and he starts making those pegs warm from then on.

    Hopefully this is different than the usual "NOMOREBUMBLE" thread...

    Hasbro, one child was looking in Kohl's for recent Prime toys. Please stop making Bumblebees. Sincerely, Consumer

    Hopefully this no more bumblebee thread is different than all those identical no more bumblebee threads!

    Yeah we know, apparently there are a lot of bumblebees.

    Lmao!

    But to get back on topic, I'm a teacher and the majority of the kids in my classroom (I teach 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade ELA) love Bumblebee and have multiple BB toys. Actually, even my students who aren't particularly fond of Transformers (i.e. the girls) only know who Bumblebee and Optimus are. Whenever I tell them my favorite characters are Starscream, Grimlock and Nemesis Prime they never know who they are.

    So yea, just because you saw one kid was pissed off about there being no other characters, plenty of other kids would be more than happy to see a row full of Bumblebee and OP merchandise.

    Wow. I've made mistakes around these boards, but at least I never made another Bumblebee thread.
