    Why did he go straight to T.J. Maxx for half off? they weren't even in the stores at least I don't think so. Did hasbro just fail and sent them to ross tj etc. cause they thought they weren't selling?

    Lack of retailer interest, or perceived lack of retailer interest, compared to movie product.


    And 'I know how to run a billion dollar toy company in' 3.... 2....

    Yeah,all the big box stores were getting ready for all the DOTM stuff.It works out for us though because we end up only paying half of what we would have payed.

    ^ Except for places like where I live where Ross, Marshals and T.J. Maxx NEVER get in any of this excess stock.

    Really, I wish Hasbro would have its coolest figures released first or in the middle of the line. This tail end stuff ought to be reserved for turds like that yellow repaint of that one constructicon.

    He didn't.
    Some stores managed to get the RTS Voyager wave in. Most were waiting to load up on Movie product.
    Distribution has little to do with Hasbro. You can't help it if Walmart and Target don't order cases of the figures.

    Except that that yellow repaint was far more awesome IMHO that the wonky G1 accurate first paint of that figure. The repaint was loads better IMHO.

    That is if we are talking about Long Haul/Payload.
