    I know the 6" line was "cancelled" however Hasbro gave the impression that they were canceled up to a point, and not just killed.

    The biggest reason that I ask is because earlier this month the last Starscream at Target went to clearance, and when I asked a more managerial looking guy about it he said that is generally a sign of them no longer carrying something.

    So I guess the real question here is, has anyone seen a local store restock these guys, or has the line finally died?

    It's been a couple weeks since I have seen them as well. Target had a sale sign up for them last week, but no tits on the shelf. Have never seen G1 Magnus Tit myself.

    Did you try Kmart? I know both of mine have had them up until the drought, but I haven't checked since.

    Haven't seen them at my local WM's in a good 6 or 7 months, K-Mart for about the same amount of time, and Target for about a month now. Maybe this line has gone the way of the dodo...

    Here in Canada we saw the last blitz of Titaniums in September with G1 Magnus and WW Megatron and nothing since then. Pretty much all I see now are random BM Cheetor's and not much else.

    My K-Mart toy section looks like a tornado and a hurricane had a baby and then took the whole family through a landfill.

    Target had them, but they have all but dried up. I see them very scarcely. Try K-Mart or online retailers. Or surf the Junkion Exchange. :)

    Same story at my Target. They had 'em, sold out pretty fast, restocked two or three times, then nothing in the last few weeks.

    Mine too! I swear, they don't bother to clean the toys up at all! But it only applies to the Action Figure and Hot Wheels sections which are the only aisles I visit. When I pass by the other aisles, they look pretty orderly. It doesn't matter what time of day I go, it's always the same...

    I've seen WWi Magnus and Sunstorm once back in August in Wal-Mart and never again. Now they have a bunch of Cheetors. Never personally seen a G1 Magnus or WWi Megs. Local TRU still has a few The Fallen's around. Along with RiD Primes Cheetors, and the occasional WWi Starscream.
