    Saw a kid begging his mom to buy him some before (sadly it was that yellow nerf gun..thing and cyberstomper BB), but never actually buying.

    I know kids who have bought TFs that i have sought after, and gone to their house only to see it armless/headless/bodyless in a corner -_- i know they are toys and meant for children but a little part of me dies inside when i see such wanton, needless destruction.

    I saw a kid that was going to buy SWTF General Grievous... I told him mine broke right away, so he bought the Millenium Falcon set instead...

    Yes- I was employed for two weeks at a major department store.

    The only Transformers that sold during that span under my watch were one Voyager Starscream, Voyager Blackout, and one Robot Replicas Bumblebee.

    Yeah, I see it quite often. I'm glad TFs are popular with the kids as well, maybe eventually Hasbro UK will figure it out and get their act together a bit more.

    I see parents buying TFs for their kids all the time, but maybe only once have I actually seen the kid buy them himself.

    I always see a mom or dad looking through tf's, But I never saw a kid looking through them.

    I see more adult collectors to tell you the truth, But I am in no way an adult :)

    Of course I do. When I buy TFs kids even ask me which one i'm getting. You should have seen how a kids eyes lit up when he saw a classics Grimlock I was buying.
