    Can anyone tell me WTF is going on?? I walk into Any TRUs, Walmart, Target and the only thing I can find are empty pegs, FABS, Real Gears, and Unleashed!! If I find any main line figs there all shelfwarmers!! The only deluxe I have seen consistently is Proto SS!!! Come on Hasbro and stores lets get our act together and start shipping these figs out in droves!! I'm sorry but I am tired for the past month of not finding anything at all. Its driving me nuts...

    Wal-Mart and Target are undergoing store resets this weekend and all throughout the first couple weeks of August, so we should be seeing a surplus of movie figures come Monday.

    The only conclusion I can come to is that Hasbro doesn't like money.

    Tell this to those who had to search for a Wii. The big restock is rumored to be the 5th, so camp out if you feel the need.

    this is the worst transformers drought in recent history.

    we should have round the clock coverage with fancy graphics and intense music, preferrably scored by harry gregson-williams.

    or fema should air lift in wave 3 to the middle of the country cuz we aint gettin shit except for cyber stompers........

    the fact is that hasbro did not expect that the movie would have sunch a big impact, and now they are hurrying to make more.

    All my local toy places have a pretty good selection of things. Which means they might not get in any newer stuff thought

    Same. I haven't seen anything past wave 1 anywhere, and at most places, wave 1 is almost sold out. Well, I did see a leader Megatron, but it was at Kay Bee :<

    The only thing I saw past the original push was the FAB assortment with Megs 08BB Frenzy and Barricade. Luckily I scooped up BB because I haven't seen anything new since.

    You all apparently are forgetting the great Energon Drought of '04. There was nothing available except the blue Ironhide (ugh, I still shiver thinking of that one) and a few others from May until almost October. It was bad. But at least then there were pegwarmers. Now, with a major movie, there is NOTHING available except crap like Cyber Slammers and the like. You'd think they would have overproduced.

    As for the August 5th reset, my Targets typically dont start showing new stock until about a month after whatever date leaks out on the internet, so I stick by my prediction that I won't see Wave 3 locally until at least mid-September.

    I also vow never to pay a scalper for anything mass-retail, ever.

    To echo thoughtcrime's observation, a reset doesn't guarantee restocks, just that "new" items wiull be put out. If no store in the country is getting deluxes, voyagers, or leaders, a reset won't change that.
