I've been under the assumption, since I was a kid, that toy distribution usually starts on the west coast of the United States and the toys are gradually trucked onwards from warehouses on the west coast. Is this an accurate assumption? The only backup I've had for this is that it seems like most of the "new release!" sightings on the TFW front page happen out west - California, Washington and states west. Star Wars action figures sightings seem to happen this way as well (or, as I remember, they did...it's been a while since I collected Star Wars figures.) I also figured that, since the toys are produced and boxed overseas that their first time on US soil would be the direct route from Asia to the states - across the Pacific. ...I guess I'm asking because I still can't find Alternators Prime.
