    I saw this at Target and thought it was too weird not to post. FOUR Megatrons and no Primes.

    Isn't that strange?

    That is a bit out of the ordinary.

    The one time Hasbro was right about kids not wanting bad guys.

    Megatron is fairly common. Now if you see nothing but Vehicons THAT would be weird.

    Looks exactly like the local Target, minus the Cyberverse Vehicon. All they've had for weeks is four Megatrons.

    I'm starting to think they were right!

    I'm tempted to buy one, but I already have Cyberverse Megatron and I just don't feel the need.

    Something similar happened to me last Monday. I was walking through Target and saw 7 Megatrons and 1 Optimus.

    Only four? My Wal-Mart has eight Magatrons and zero Primes.

    Well, at least with Voyagers. Cyberverse, on the other hand...

    Kids do tend to prefer the hero characters, but it's compounded by parents. When I was a kid, my parents would always try to talk me out of wanting the bad guys. I've seen other parents doing the same with their kids in toy aisles today.

    How strange. How can your characters be heroic without a villain?

    Guess they didn't pack enough Bumblebees in that assortment.


    Seriously though, they could always be somewhere else in the store. I remember walking into my TRU one day & seeing an entire peg of Starsceams & 1 Arcee, and it took me a moment to realize that there were like 20 Bumblebees a few feet to the left of em.

    I saw this at a K-Mart as well. Too bad their distribution of Bumblebee didn't work out as well.

    Easily. Heroic isn't beating people up. It's saving lives and helping others.

    Just saw 2 Megatrons along with 0 Optimii at a Target today, but nothing compares to weeks ago when I saw a handful of Cliffjumpers and Wheeljacks and NO Bumblebees. My brain was unable to process what I was seeing. :)
