    Expect every Marshalls to have at least a dozen TLK Voyager Grimlocks and just about as many Deluxe Bumblebee and Slash.

    TLK Grimlock might win as shelfwarmer of the decade.

    If they follow the same pricing model, they'll be $12.99. Which is still too much.

    I'd actually substitute Bee for one of the Decepticons, from what I've seen. Strangely, when AoE was fading out and those Power Attackers, Voyager Drifts, and essentially all of the revision wave's deluxes were warming my local shelves, Marshalls had Commander Blackout and the Kreon things. I forgot that I found Blackout in 2014. Love that little guy.

    I would expect that they definitely get some later wave Movie toys and maybe the last wave of Generations deluxes if they don't sell well. Maybe the Seaspray legends wave too?

    I do expect some more 50th GI Joe product, they got a test amount of that about a month ago which usually means more at Christmas.

    We'll know in November for sure

    Oh yeah. Bee may have warmed pre-movie, but after the movie came out, the kids bought up Bumblebee and left the Decepticons that we collectors were originally worried about finding. Now it's the Decepticons that are warming.

    That's not how this works. They'll get the same case assortments from Hasbro that TRU/Target/WM got.

    I thought some stores returned overstock to Hasbro, wouldn't that end up at bargain stores?

    They do not. All major retailers (TRU/WM/Target/Meijer/Fred Meyer/Kohls) clearance their own overstock in store at the store level. Its too expensive to ship around like that. The only product that gets returned in a major way is CDs/DVDs because they have an infinite shelf life and take up a really small amount of warehouse space

    The only one I got was megatron,.,the others are pretty cool but not worth full price imo. Especially after swooping a bunch of cw voyagers last time for 12 bucks. Also hoping blaster and prime leaders make an appearance. I'll buy those shits for 20 bucks all day long

    I'm sure that's true 99% of the time. I've seen TRU exclusives (with TRU price tags) at Tuesday Morning though. So there are at least some cases where this could happen. Probably not in this case though.

    It can happen, but it is very rare. Once and only once when I worked at Target doing Reverse Logistics we had a return issued for a bunch of old Hasbro product, mostly Marvel stuff. But it took nearly everything, and it wasn't like "send back the Grimlocks but leave all of the other voyagers" or anything so specific.

    So it can happen, but more than likely I think any returns would be full cases from a Target or Wal-Mart distribution center and not individual figures straight out of the stores.

    Those stickers are put on at the factory, so that doesn't mean they came from TRU directly

    Um, I'm talking about price stickers, not "Toys R Us Exclusive" stickers. The type I've watched them put on with a sticker gun in the store. I'm especially sure they don't apply multiple layers of markdown and clearance stickers at the factory ;)

    Yeah...I'd grab a few extras just for the hell of it. Some of them are good enough to warrant having doubles.
