...and I wasn't even wishing for anything, though I will admit I was angry and wanted Hasbro to learn their lesson for taking Animated and Universe from us. What am I rambling on about, you ask? Well... All of the local stores in my region (Erie/Edinboro/Meadville/Greenville/Hermitage PA. Ashtabula/Boardman/Niles/Poland OH.) seem to be having quite a problem getting their ROTF stock to sell. Now, before you go on and say "Well your area is not a reliable indicator for the rest of us." you're right...but here's the catch. 11 Wal-Marts, 8 K-Marts, 3 TRUs, 3 Targets, 1 specialty store (Kraynak's) and all of them are just loaded down with Legends, Scouts, Deluxes, Voyagers and Leaders. (Don't even ask me to count the Ultimate Bumblebees, role plays, etc. I couldn't even begin to count those suckers...) Voyagers seem to sell quite well. Probably the best, from what I can see. Deluxes were #1 for a while and are now a close #2, but all other size classes are a distant 3rd and so on. (Leaders are terribly overstocked. It's ridiculous.) And none of it makes sense to me... When TF07 came out, the toys didn't sell well at first, but once the film hit that Wednesday, the toy shelves were CLEAN Friday night. ROTF comes out, and the best sales of the toys were before the film. Now that the film has come out, Ravage is the absolute best seller of all the figures (he's becoming hard to find in all of the stores I mentioned) but none of the other toys really seem to be making any kind of impact. Now I realize that some locations are reporting nice sales and thus a heavy restock cycle going, but I've had friends tell me that they're suffering with the same thing. Loads and loads of old figures with no room or expectation of the new. So...did I inadvertently get a wish answered without even really asking it? Like I said, it was out of anger and I wanted Hasbro to realize that they couldn't just put all of their eggs in one basket and hope for the best. I had wanted them to learn their lesson without losing their shirts. Methinks, however, if this trend continues and it's in more locations that we realize...that's a hell of a lot of product that ain't movin'. Even with sales, nothing seems to be flying off the shelves. Superion (Target Exclusive) has even been collecting dust. I went to those three Targets I mentioned earlier, and they all had at least 2-3 in stock, and one store had like two cases worth, just sitting there. Now, I realize the economy is in the shitter right now for everyone, but obviously the movie's doing well, to the tune of $200+ million, and you'd think the toys would follow suit. They're not. I can't imagine people are that disinterested in the toys...they can't be. And with the sales running currently, they can't say they're not affordable, because they're actually cheaper than the previous lines toys were. So, how is it in your neck of the woods? More of the same of what I see, or are you actually seeing bare shelves and good news for your TF buying future?
