my local wal-mart is flooded with bonecrushers, real gear stuff is also clogging up the shelf.
Real Gear, Cyber Slammers, Fast-Action-Battlers, Optimus Prime Helmet, and Voyager Ratchet are shelf warmers here. If I had to guess, I think the neon-green of Ratchet doesn't make it an attractive "LOOK AT ME! BUY ME!" proposition for the kids.
I see tons of Bonecrusher and Swindle deluxes, and Voyager Ratchets. Some stores have 1 or no Megatrons, or an end cap full.
I've seen pretty much every toy released up to this point clogging up aisles of every big toy retailer. I cant remember this happening with Classics. I wish it did, cause' then I wouldnt have had to go online to get them.
Really makes them feel even cheaper.
See lots of:
Ratchet (one of the only reasons I was ok in passing on him today)
In my country its mostly the real gear stuff and oh...Bumblebee's SOLD OUT! XD
I can't see any bumblebee's, NONE. but you can see every other deluxe figure raping the shelves.
just real gear blackout , ratchet , robo prime, and FAB and cyber slammers. no deluxes once so ever meaning some ppl actually boughtscopinocks
Seriously, my TRU has a giant rack of pegs where Deluxes should be, but they're full of Protoforms instead. I know they have other Deluxes back there because there were two lying in front of the mass of these things.
-Cyber Stompers (think thats the name,dont even remember now)
-Prime helmets (I want the Cullen one already)
-Role Play guns
Voyagers and Leader classes sold out very very quick,and considering they had over 20 cases of deluxes come in over the weekend and they're down to a couple dozen toys left out of those,they're selling like crazy around here.
-Fast Action Battlers
Everything else has flown off the shelves where I am at.
Swindle is almost everywhere except The Bay and a litttle toy store.
weird that you guys are seeing Bonecrusher everywhere... last time I checked he was rare here. Maybe it's changed since then...
Jazz is a warmer here and Swindle is a HUGE one. Havent really looked at the voyagers cos I cant splurge on them yet. I havent seen Wreckage in a while which is disconcerting
Bonecrusher was hard to find at 1st but now he is everywhere along with brawl and swindle. Jazz and Barricade are somewhat less warmers and bumblebee is hard to find now. I had to search for a 2nd one. VOyager ratchet and leader Prime also warm the shelves. The real gear somewhat does but the cyber slammers/FAB and cyberstompers don't look like they have sold at all.
-Role Playing Guns (which is a shame because I love my Prime one).
-Real Gear figures (well the hand held game guy and Longview anyway).
-Gary Chalk voice changer helmets.
Hottest selling items
-Softimus Prime and Slumblebee.
-Deluxe Bumblebee and Barricade.
Things are selling pretty hot here (Deluxe BB and Jazz, Robot Heroes, and Leaders especially)- but there are a lot of the transforming blaster items.
Swindle. Everywhere. Also the Cyber Slammers. Everything else is selling like crazy.
I think it's somewhat difficult to tell at this point, given that most stores are likely restocking these rather quickly when they do run out (especially the larger size classes). However...
- Protoform Starscream and Optimus Prime
- Deluxe Bonecrusher and Swindle - In one of the Wal-Marts I visit, virtually every peg in the toy aisle display (not the separate island) is packed with these two figures.
- Unleashed Bumblebee statue.
- Optimash Prime
- Role-Play Blasters (both)
- Voice Changer Helmets - The Cullen variant seems to have been released in smaller numbers, but both versions hardly sell at all.
- Leader Optimus Prime
- Real Gear, with one exception
- Deluxe Brawl
- Voyagers - Ratchet and Blackout appear to be going a little faster around here, but not by much.
- Fast Action Battlers
- Both store-exclusive two-packs (Blackout/Scorponok and Bumblebee/Barricade)
- Deluxe '74 Bumblebee - Even the "broken" version, though the "repaired" ones are most hard to come by.
- Deluxe Jazz, Barricade, Wreckage and Scorponok
- Leader Megatron
- Target-exclusive Robo-Vision Optimus Prime
- Target-exclusive Scouts, first wave
- Real Gear Booster X10
- Softimus Prime and Slumblebee
Everything I said would do it has.
The protoforms are STILL clogging every store that has any TF items. Fast Action Battlers and Cyber Stompers aren't moving either. LoCs aren't really priced to sell, otherwise they'd be doing better. Most of the peripheral product (Unleashed, board games, Titaniums, etc) seems to be sitting too.
The deluxes aren't doing too badly. Bumblebee (and Robovision Prime for that matter) has been impossible to find since day one. Swindle and Bonecrusher outnumber the others by a large magin. Everything else appears to move pretty decently relative to size class so far though.
Seeing tons of deluxes, Cyberslammers and FAB's. Plus all the misc roleplay-ish stuff.
It's still a nice feeling seeing it all stocked up. So used to the stores having NOTHING
