    I was at TRU today. As many have noticed, the TF pegs at TRU, Target, and other places are getting sparcely populated. Recently we get the announcement that Atacktix is being taken off the shelves in order to make room for new TF merchandise. I asked one of the TRU employees what was up and when exactly the new movie toys would be out. And he said March 28th! I thought the movie toys weren't coming until June 5 or something like that. Was this employee mistaken? He said a lot of people had been asking the same release date question lately and seemed to know what he was talking about. Has there been a sudden change in release date for the movie toys or is this a false alarm? Has anybody heard anything themselves about the 28th? And if it's true, is your wallet ready yet?

    The dates stated at BotCon were May 2 for the preview figs, and June 2 for the opening blast of the main line. I don't recall seeing/hearing anything to suggest a date change from a Hasbro-like source since then.

    If this is true of a March 28th release,thats two days after my birthday,and I just
    happen to have saved $150 for these beauty's,and I will have Blackout,Prime,Bumblebee
    (in both 2008,and 70's styles),also those Keychains,Plushies,the flip-up Prime Rig
    Blaster,and anything else I can get my hands on.And if they don't come out that day I
    will save even more money for the Movie Toys.So it ain't no biggy if they come out then
    or not.

    I had heard from a reliable individual that movie toys might hit sooner, but I really didn't pay much mind since Star Wars saw a similar buildup in 2005. What further increases my doubts is that Spider-Man 3 toys are due out March 24th.

    What may be happening is TRU might have struck some deal with Hasbro to get some items sooner (likely preview toys), although it is quite possible with the building hype, Hasbro might bump things up by a month or two.

    We'll just have to wait and see, but I strongely suspect that either the TRU employee got his dates confused, or preview figures might hit TRU first.

    What I hope are released this month at TRU are the next wave of Titaniums and the Alternator Ravage and Rumble.

    And/or the Real Gear.

    TFCC supposedly has Rumble in stock, possibly Ravage, but not online. I wouldn't be surprised at all if these hit shelves in the U.S. this month. I've been looking forward to Rumble since the first pics from Walmart.com showed up, what, last summer?

    Confused at TRU

    The guy at TRU was confused. He was correct that the shelves would be full of movie toys on the 24th of march - That is the street date for all the Spiderman 3 and Pirates 3 merchandise. (and yes it is an actual STREET date)

    The date for transformers is still the first week of June.

    As far as fantastic four, harry potter, and any other movie toys - I am sure they will be on one of those 2 dates as well , probably the June one by my guess.
