    I would have to say the great drought of 07 when all there was on the shelves were Payloads. Everywhere I looked was atleast 10 Payloads. Didn't Hasbro take them all back eventually? I just can't wait till we see it come out in a two-pack "exclusive" sometime before Christmas, cause those guys have to be somewhere.

    Outside of that, I would just have to say KMart in general always has the most interesting "displays". Looks like the Sweedish Chef from the Muppets stocks the toy aisles at all their stores.

    My Target has had a million Rampage and Wheelies for well over a month now. Every so often a Sideswipe or Dead End will sneak in there, but those Rampage/Wheelies ain't going nowhere. Might snag one on clearance, but not for $13 or whatever they're charging for em, no sir.

    A full shelf of ROTF Skywarps and Ramjets, still at full price! If they ain't selling, why not lower the price a notch like other Wally's around here!

    I haven't bought them even on clearance, because they're still $21. The person who got them for $3 is a lucky bastard...

    The only deluxe my local TRU has had for the past two months is Rampage. Seriously, it's just a wall of yellow. If there were that many in the movie than the Cons would have world domination by now.

    You think YOUR stories are depressing? I can beat them all.

    The Target near me had a Transformers display that consisted solely of the Cheetor/BA Robot Heroes pack.

    For eight months.

    Currently my local Wal-Mart has a butt load of Chromias and Wheelies. 2 Demolishers, 1 Rampage, and Gravity bots. It sucks. :(

    Meanwhile I can't find either Rachet OR Hot Shot! It's not fair! *pouts*



    ...


    Okay, I'm over it. I haven't seen things to bad, but I have to agree that there are far to many Chromias and Wheelies out there.

    About a month ago, I counted 33 Sideways warming the Wal-Mart pegs. That same store's TFA selection consisted of about 15 Ratchets, no one else. Even now they still have at least 10 Ratchets, and one Grimlok Activator. However, their ROTF selection is now about 8 columns of deluxe class, and more voyagers than the shelves can hold.

    And I totally agree that the Sweedish Chef does the toy stocking at K-Mart. That place always looks like they just toss the stuff on pegs and shelves at random.
