    As everyone gushes over the FE voyagers, two-pack, and Zombie Cliffjumpers that are coming to the US, I question how they'll be distibuted.

    Will they be first come, first serve, as in they sell out, that's it? Or will they be restocked if they sell out, like it's an actual line?

    Or was Hasbro even specific about how they'd be distributed?

    All we know for sure is that people will find something to complain about when the time comes. Otherwise, I don't see what's the actual problems.

    The only thing I know about the distribution is that they are TRU exclusives. I think it's more of a subline to the normal Prime figures (called PRID by the fandom). They're really only being released because U.S. fans bitched and moaned about not getting Cliffjumper, Optimus, and Bulkhead while other countries got them in excess.

    Why are people calling these TRU exclusives? I know they're exclusive to a retailer but I didn't hear or read which store.

    The distribution will be the same as it is for the current main PRID line:

    Factory -> warehouse -> mysterious cosmic void -> Ebay

    All I can say is this. Let your local TRU know that there is going to be a somewhat large demand on the FE figures, and they should order accordingly. I will be talking to whomever does the ordering at my local TRU in a few weeks and will try to see just what they know about the FE figures, and how many they plan to order. If enough people do this, maybe the stores will order enough to satisfy collectors who won't have to deal with stupid scalper price increases on Ebay. We'll see though. At least I will make an effort to let TRU know, and if it helps me (and fellow local collectors), then it was worth the time/trouble.

    If they were going to be put in stores once, Hasbro would have said.
