    This might be old news, and at my TRU only, but in the Bi-Quarterly refacing of the action figure aisle in toys R Us, they gave Transfromers, Star Wars and Wrestling 4 more feet each for product. In an unrelated note, they're going to be selling Force FX Lightsabers as big ticket items now. The store that I work at already has the placing and the big empty space for when they arrive.

    I was at tru a week or two ago and saw the lightsabers. I'm not into star wars much but it would be pretty kick ass to have one of those sabers.

    And it;s pretty cool to hear them making more space for the toys. Im just afraid that it will just be another four feet of bare pegs. :(

    Transformers Movie toys will be back on shelves soon, and they won't be going anywhere for a long time to come (as in, they will continue to be replenished, etc.)

    My local TRU just made the change too, but unfortunately there's still too much Cybertron clogging those shelves.

    Yeah I saw the Vader FX lightsabers at one of my TRUs a couple of weeks ago.
    Now if they were just selling the newest FX releases (Obi wan, Yoda, etc) then perhaps I can see the point. However Ive only seen a full display of the Vader lightsaber which has been out for several years now at places like borders, game stop and spencers for $20 less.

    Good news. Now my local TRU can spread out those seventy protoforms onto even more pegs. Maybe they'll have enough that they can peg all the ones lying on the shelf, too.

    I really wish I was exaggerating. :(
