    Hey all

    I know many of you are having trouble finding 08 Deluxe Bumblebee

    Well, it would seem the worlds entire stock is in one place . . . .

    [​IMG]


    This was taken yesterday in . . . . FRANCE

    I counted OVER 200 08 Bumblebee on the shelves
    That picture was just one of 4 blocks of toys, all mainly Bumblebees

    I looked in some unopen cases, they were cases of 16! figures were

    6 X Bumblebee
    2 X Arcee
    2 X Dreadwing
    2 X Bonecrusher
    2 X Swindle
    1 X Wreckage
    1 X Scorponok

    Very odd assortment

    Went to another large toy chain in France which had some VERY cool TF displays

    For scale, I am 6'4"!

    More Bumblebee in this store

    [​IMG]

    18 Euro = £12.20 GBP = $24.80 USD


    I did buy a stack of Bumblebees but don't call me a scalper, I left about 190 more on the shelves!

    Cheers

    haha, that's awesome!

    I don't think it qualifies you as a scalper, lol.

    Scalper? pfft You left 190 on the shelf! Can't even do that right!

    Seriously though, absolutely wicked pictures. I'd love to see more non-UK or non-US store displays. That Legends display is really special.

    All the best

    Doesn't look like there is quite 200 figures on that display shelf to me, but I'll take your word on it - that's an annoying large amount of 08 Bumblebee's though.....

    So, if Hasbro has enough stock to ship that much to France, how come we don't see that amount here in America? I went to five Targets this morning and they all had nothing but empty pegs.

    Very slim, I had the thing pretty much unhooked when my girlfriend pointed out the security guards were armed

    Swiftly changed my mind!

    Wow, congrats on such a find. I only wish TS TRU had the same colossal display of that specific wave....then again, if that were true, it probably disappear in less than 3 days.

    this is a rare situation where you could have bought 150 of a single figure, and still not be considered a scalper/hoarder.

    No wonder I can't find shit. And you'd think living in Hasbro's home state of Rhode Island would help. Not-uh. Geezus! This drought BLOWS. I hope we get figures in soon. I'm starting to buy more Gundam kits than usual and developing a bad urge to buy the R.e.v.s. toys I see at Big Lots while looking for TF Knock-Offs. Dammit! Gimme NEW BOTS!!!!!
