    my wal-mart is insane, there must be nearly 500 deluxes ALONE in my store (it must be close to that, there are 5 separate sections jsut for transformers OVERLAODED with deluxes)

    and nearly 100 voyagers.....it is insane, never in my life have i seen this many transformers in one store

    so how overloaded are your stores?

    if it is wave 1-3 there is NOTHING scare, hell they even restocked generations, warpath, kup, wheeljack, thundercracker, scourge, it was all there, got two scourges for myself.....had to be 30 generations figures

    wal-marts are finally getting caught up after almost a year being behind, it is mind blowing

    my walmart has a huge section in the aisle. a display in the toy section and a display near the one entrance closest to the toy section. Oh, and a hidden supply of deluxes on an endcap not far from the display near the entrance.

    Heh. Yeah, the Wal-Mart here is just loaded to the brim with Deluxes. Leaders were selling surprisingly well, that is until they restocked them the early last week. Sentinel is the big seller out of wave 1, of course, but Bumblebee...heh.

    Voyagers were selling well. Megatron and Ironhide sold out, all except for one Megatron and one Ironhide. We're now sitting on a shit ton of Optimus, four of the helicopter guy, and two Shockwaves.

    And now there are floor displays, three pallets, an endcap and an aisle. I sure hope the movie gets people interested in buying, because they won't stock new anything for a long, long time if these don't sell.

    I know Hasbro wanted to make sure everyone had enough stock to cover their bases, but the bases are loaded and everyone's left the seats. lol

    I just hope that stuff starts clearing out fast before Walmart starts consolidating displays, cause there is nothing in these waves that I still want or need. Really, really hoping that this doesn't stop us from having to chase after figures, but I think we could be screwed on HA figures again this time around.

    Went into TRU the other day and they had a 20+ foot area by the door that was all DOTM, I just stood there thinking "You guys are so not going to sell all this stuff."

    I can easily walk into any of the 3 local Walmarts and pick up 10 Leader BB and 30+ Voyager OP.

    It sounds like stores are once again counting on the movie toys to move big time.

    There's one super walmart by my that has three different TF sections. They're trying their hardest to make it a treasure hunt to find what you're looking for.

    The regular isle has wave 1 & 2 items, but no HA basics/Legends.

    An end cap 2 isles down with HA basics/legends, wave 2 & 3 of the deluxes, wave 1 voyagers and wave 1 leaders.

    Finally the last section by the main enterance is loaded with various TF licensed merchandise along with wave 2 voyagers, and wave 1-2 of everything else.

    My walmart yesterday was FULL. The section in the toy aisle had about 100 deluxes, probably 30 voyagers and 10 or so leaders. The endcap had another 100-120 deluxes, with alot of them being the walmart exclusive OP. They also FINALLY got HA roadbuster, which I grabbed. Then there was another section dedicated to about 50 HA basics, another 100 deluxes or so, and another 30 or so voyagers.

    I'd have to use the term butt load to describe it.

    It's so many that it wouldn't all fit in the toy section they had for Transformers so they have put them in different parts of the store. Some of it on end caps in other parts of the toy department and some of it is upfront where they have a display for things like Transformers shirts and back packs.

    With so much stuff it's hard to tell if it's moving well or not. Which kind of makes me worry about the release of the Transformers Prime line if they can't move a huge amount of movie toys before then.

    It's movie release week. Every store that carries them wants to be loaded to the gills with product, especially since they'll be in circulars and likely on sale everywhere.

    My Wal-Mart has a couple of areas set up - one near the front of the store with an endcap full of deluxes, about half of one side of an aisle filled with shirts, deluxe Primes, pillows, DS and Wii DOTM games, ROTF games; in the toy section is the regular TF area with deluxes, HA basics and regular HA, cyberverse (to include the Rodimus pack), activators, battle bots and some leaders. There are also a few pallets with the same stuff nearby and a Voyager endcap.

    I think they're up to deluxe wave 2 (the one with Jolt and Barricade), Cyberverse wave 1, wave 2 of playsets, wave 2 of voyagers and wave 2 for leaders. There have been a couple of leader Ironhides hanging out there for a few days. But I think they are way overstocked on wave 1 of everything. They're swimming in voyager Primes and Megatrons.

    My local WM, Target, TRU are packed as well..

    but what's so funny about all of this DOTM saturation, the week of May 16th, everyone was moaning and crying as to why DOTM toys were not out on their shelves and now we're swimming in them.. hahaha... :lol
