    I went to a Zellers department store today to check their stock. They had several boxes labeled "TRANS MV2 DELUXE ASS." , as well as scout and legends. All of the boxes had vibrant stamps saying "DO NOT PUT ON SHELVES UNTIL 09/05/15." I asked a few employees, and they were adamant that they could not open the boxes until that date, despite me assuring them that the toys have already hit shelves in the U.S. Guess I'm waiting till Friday morning :(

    i dont think so, because the preview figures have already showed up in stores here, and also because the legends and scouts were there. either way, i have to wait till friday.

    I asked a worker at walmart if I could get some of the preview figures from a case on one of the skids and he chedked if they could be sold, then came back and said sure. He clearly saw the date stamp on the box too.


    Maybe zellers is a bit more strict because they are a canadian store and it would probably be harder to negotiate their way out of major fines for breaking street dates than it would be for a company the size and scope of walmart

    My local Kmart has had the shelf and peg stickers up for several weeks now. I keep waiting for them to jump the gun, but nothing yet...

    Yeah, I called my TRU about it, and they said that is the case. I'm not sure about the actual later waves though, if they are coming out ON May 15, or on May 30.

    Yeah. I've never seen them make that mistake before.


    I'm going to Zellers, but I have Preview Bumblebee and Soundwave on pre-order. :(
