    I didn't find a thread for this and I don't think this would go under the sightings thread(s). I thought it would be nice to show off what your local TF shelves look like (Target, Toys R Us, Asda, Walmart etc...). Maybe you could show off how good (or bad!) your area is for TFs. Remember to put the name of the store :)

    Here's a Walmart I frequent. Yes, the Generations pegs are filled with HFTD Wave 2 and Mudflaps. This store hasn't recieved any Generations past the first wave as a result. Luckily, it's only one of four Walmarts in town.

    Huh, for once I think we in the UK are on par with America. We're actually up to HFTD wave 4 now, having had wave 3 mysteriously overlooked... :(

    Man it bugs the hell out of me when they overstock the pegs like that. I see it everywhere and it's just a mess waiting to happen. You know things are going to fall as soon as someone touches anything, just send it to the back. Yeesh.

    A supermarket store chain named Real (think Walmart, only less aggressive and less market-dominating) in a neighboring town:

    A local toy & sports shop named Frütel located in another district of my city, another Intertoys branch in a neighboring city and a small toy & hobby store named "Moerser Spiel & Freizeit" only a few feet away from Intertoys which I nicknamed the Twilight Zone because... well... Cybertron Scrapmetal? Armada Laserbeak? WTF?
