    Didn't you hear? Hasbro has cancelled all Transformers lines. They have decided to completely rethink their products. This is due in part to the fact that Bumblebee is their top selling figure, to the point where they sell several thousand Bumblebees for every other non-bumblebee figure they sell.

    Good god, impatient much?

    No they don't. They don't have Soundwave, Arcee, or Voyager Megatron yet.

    Our Wal-Mart hasn't opened yet, so I still travel 20 miles just to buy figures. One thing that I find disturbing is the fact that even with the Prime line out now, Bee is still all that I see.

    I'm seriously concerned that he's gonna overstock shelves and cause problems for Prime, just like with DOTM.

    Uh, no they don't. Not even close.

    Just wait. It doesn't all come out at once.

    Except he didn't with DOTM. Despite what fans would like to believe, the DOTM line was a success.

    And it was all of wave one, not BB, that was seeing overstock.

    Yeah, Transformers will pretty much be done once we get wave 3 of teh Prime shit, assuming that even makes it to North America.





    ... but seriously though, just be patient. The FE problems shouldn't happen to the mainline, especially given the amount of push this stuff is apparently getting.

    Wave two is getting close to saturation, and wave three should be hitting pretty soon. So yeah, be patient. I'll also add: stop jumping to ridiculous conclusions such as the line being cancelled.

    They haven't been cancelled, mr impatient.
    Wv2 legions just started showing up at tru's & kmart(PA sightings).
    Wv2 botshots also out.
    Wv3 dxs are available at robotkingdom & bbts(today in fact)
    so they should start hitting stores in next few weeks.
    Voyagers should follow soon(already in singapore tru's).
    Slow down, relax, don't panic.
    Just wait.
    It'll be worth it.

    Wave One Cyb Commanders haven't even been spotted in Canada yet, I don't see why you'd start panicking when you fellows in the US seem to be getting pretty saturated with Wave One and stuff, hell we haven't even seen anything yet of Ratchet and Arcee Deluxe wise.

    I must admit though, with all the Stock of Wave One at TRU and all the stock of FEs they stuck out on the shelf due to some odd decisions with Distribution from Hasbro Canada I'm a bit depressed and feel we may not even seen Ratchet or Arcee until at least June.

    Hasbro Canada really seems to be falling apart with Distribution of all of Hasbro's lines. I was at a Wal-Mart today and they didn't even have shelf tags for My Little Pony anymore. Truly disheartening.

    Yes they have. I bought Prime last weekend.

    Not fully saturated yet, though.

    I stand corrected, and hope to see all four of them on store shelves in the Peg before too long.

    Yes, it's 100% true. They've even canceled deluxe EVAC and every other toy you want.

    In fact, Hasbro will be renaming themselves to "Autobot Bumblebee, Inc. LLC." by 2013.

    I'd swear we get this topic at this sort of time every year.

    Anyhow, it's just a distribution thing. The new toys are in the pipeline, they are just taking a little time to come through. We know there are more toys in store (Airracchnid, Dreadwing), they'll hit over the next few months too.


    I do find it funny actually, Hasbro cannot do right for doing wrong. They space releases out and you have you guys asking where the next wave is, they release a load of stuff all in one go, and there's complaints of "my wallet cannae take any more, she'll blow captain!"

    *messing with the arcee from wave 2 that he found at wal-mart a few weeks ago* you say something?

    seriously, be patient, wave 3 is due out the end of this month, and wave 2 is pretty easy to find around here, give it time
