    OK here is the 411! Went to Toysrus in Bay Shore NY and they had everything but the new ROTF wave. But I DID SEE a box in top stock that said TFM2 VOY Assort do not put on sales floor until May 30th! I asked a associate to take it down and he said "I'm sorry I could get into alot of trouble if I bring that box down". I'm assuming that is the future wave that contains Voyager Mindwipe wave, and that might be his release date! Any thoughts?

    Doubt it.

    EDIT: Plus it's January. I really doubt TRU is going to stock something that'll be released that early, as it'd take room away from stock that'll be put out before then.

    Ok maybe its not Mindwipe but I DID see 1 box in topstock that was labeled TFM2 voyagers and it had a little sign thing printed on their that clearly said do not put out till May 30th so maybe its somthing we dont know about or it could just be repaints. Also I find online retailers "release date" not accurate like BBTS there usually off by a few months.

    I don't think so, I go there alot and constantly check there over head top stock and never seen that box there till now, I wish I had a camera phone I would have took a picture of it. When I asked the guy to take it down he also hinted to me that the box just came in.

    Warehouses can always get backlogged on stock. We didn't get Wave 1 deluxes here until a month or two ago, and they were also in the May street date box.

    Also, BBTS/EntertainmentEarth is accurate more often then not, as usually their release dates are straight from their suppliers.

    So it;s just going to sit on the shelves for 4 months, that's no way to run a business either for Hasbro, the distributor or the retailer.

    Besides, why on earth would that particular wave have a release date, there's nothing special about it.

    It's wave 1 stuff, I'm 99% sure as all the wave 1 and 2 boxes had a May 30th street date sticker on the side of every box. Plus it's not uncommon for stores to get old stock in. Hell there's a walmart by me that has practially every deluxe released thus on the shelves.

    dude the ONLY boxes that had the do not sell til may 3oth tag on them were when the ROTF toys first hit store shelves last year, on May 30th. they would not have something new this far in advance that couldnt be released til then. hasbro only does those do not sell things on new toy lines that are released on specific dates. not on wave of existing toylines

    you know theres a year there also. along with the name of the wave there in shorthand. It would say 2009 or 2010. It probably says 2009

    So basically, by May 30th, it means May 30th of last year. Maybe he couldn't bring it down because the shelfs were already stocked with voyagers anyway.
