    the amount of rotf/generation clogging the shelf may end up being the stuff of legend. no one, and I mean no one, wants poor sea attack ravage. at least he's not lonely though. the black repaint of scorponok is another sad piece of work in my area that just keep hangin around. What does the shelf warmer situation look like around you guys out there?

    Lots of WfC Cliffjumpers, Thunderwings, and Skullgrins.

    Walmarts here still have some wave 1/2 HFTD stuff and wave 3/4/5 of generations. TRU has the same, plus Tuner Mudflaps. Target rarely, if ever, restocked, so it had nearly bare walls for nearly 3 months.

    You weren't around during Transformers Energon, were you?

    Since the first movie, NO Transformers product has really shelfwarmed like we saw with some Beast Wars/Machines and Energon.

    And just because they are movie styled does NOT mean they are "RotF". Sea Attack Ravage is a Gold Box release, a completely separate line.

    My area just has tons of Warpaths and Windchargers - these things just don't move here. Also, my area is called the Land Of Make Believe.

    Well, assuming you're not just trolling, that's what I thought for about a week or two as well... and then of course things changed (shit got sold out) when I realized how rare they were in the US & wanted to pick up a couple for possible trades.

    Mostly the Skullgrin wave of Generations near me. That being said, there is one Walmart near me with two pegs each of HftD Hailstorm and Tuner Skids. Crazy.

    Skullgrin really takes the cake around here, but sea attack ravage is a close 2nd. I'd say that Thunderwing is a surprising 3rd...i personally liked that toy a lot.

    Exactly.

    You made me believe (at least for the sake of my post).

    Yeah, same here. WfC Megs, Soundwave, Thunderwing, Cliffjumper and Skullgrin. I'm shocked that Thunderwing of all characters ended up shelfwarming. I figured he'd be just as hard to find as any would come.

    Btw, are people seeing Grappel on the shelves? I've only seen them on ebay, and wasn't sure if theyw ere getting them from online stores and jacking the price, or overseas. Of course, I still haven't seen hide nor hair of that wave, or the wheeljack/warpath wave.

    My Super Walmart had quite a few Skullgrins and Darkmounts I'll tell ya that. Not sure why, but I figure it has something to do with obscure character syndrome.

    I can't wait for Cyberverse Hatchet and DLX Crankcase to become shelfwarmers. I plan on buying some doubles of them.
