    I'm seriously getting worried about this line. Voyagers, Scouts, and Legends are STILL not out here, when they've been out in Canada for well over a month(two months?). On top of that, none of the Walmarts near me have ever stocked the deluxes, and just put out several more cases of HFTD wave 2.

    Has Hasbro said anything about this? Are we even going to get these guys at retail?

    Yeah, before you know it all the stores will be swimming in DotM figs and we'll never get them. I'm beginning to think this is the reason so many WalMart and Targets have little to no Ganerations or RTS.

    Would it be a possibiity that because so many of us are buying them online that alot of the waves just arent making it to retail? I mean this line is aimed at collectors so they wouldnt be produced in the same numbers as ROTF. Everytime I check HTS, they are sold out.

    Well HTS has not gotten it restocked yet. Also, BBTS has not gotten restocks either. So it seems like no one is really getting multiple stock.

    I can see where the concern is coming from, but really, America is Hasbro's main market for the toys. They'll come out. It makes no sense to throw away that much money and then not have them come out.

    Honestly, you know what I'm thinking? Street dates. They're in back rooms, mistakenly being held back because there's a street date on Dark of the Moon that's come down and retailers only got the "Transformers street date" part.

    To be honest with you i'm having my doubts too. I only saw RTS Jazz once at walgreens and that was it. I ran up on the remains of the latest RTS line at target but the characters I want were wiped out due to the local scalper. I really don't feel like paying extra online costs either. I hope I see Wreck-Gar amd Perceptor in the next few weeks.

    Yeah, I'm beginning to worry about those and the last couple PCC waves (Heavytread, Skyhammer, Undertow, Salvage).

    It's bad in the UK too but we're only missing the voyagers (god dammit I want another Lugnut) Legends wave 2 and the scout first wave all made it out here, I would say it's the stores not ordering in the stock due to waiting for the movie but even some online stores are struggling to get stock maybe due to toys not being produced in great enough numbers for some reason. With any luck they'll come out in the next month or so.

    Tracks and Jazz are the only RST figures I've seen anywhere. And then I had to do a bit of driving to find them. My local WalMart had 14 WFC Primes and 12 Drifts the other day, and 20 PCC Bonbshocks. I shit you not. The K-Mart across the street had an entire isle of just leftover ROTF stock. Lots and lots of Mudflaps.

    It's weird that my local Wal-Mart has the pegs marked for them but I've not seen any of the figures show up. Even on trips out of town there isn't any figures from those waves to be found at any of the stores I've been to.

    So yes I'm really starting to worry that I might have screwed up by not just pre-ordering the figures off the net. Each week is week closer to the flood of Dark of the Moon toys so if it's like some other toy lines all retailers will seem to stock is movie toys.

    If this was like the Star Wars, GI Joe, or Marvel lines I wouldn't worry so much because characters get reissued all the time. But you miss something Classics related with Transformers and you've lost your one and only shot at the figure.
