    Huh. It's awesome someone actually KNEW something when you asked! Usually I get "I don't know, and the case assortments don't list specific toys blah blah blah."

    Yeah, with the exception of a new line having a street date for a movie roll out, how often does anybody know that specifically? I'd take that with a grain of salt.

    Even if you're lucky enough to be by a store that moves merchandise quickly and actually restocks with new stuff when it becomes available (a lot of us aren't so lucky)- that's still awfully precise.

    Maybe the guy had no idea what you were talking about and just gave you a Transformers street date. If this story is at all credible we may have a street date for something. We just don't know what.



    Edit: Well I'm pretty sure TFW has at least one member who works at TRU. We probably would have heard something already.

    Well I work at TRU, and I know we get some stuff early in the back and they'll usually have a street date tag on them, so thats probably how he knows

    Well, people had been saying that they were moved to Wave 5, which is supposed to be out in October. I hadn't believed it at the time, but this makes it seem more likely. I sure hope it's true. I can't wait for Soundwave.
