    Do a lot of people in the US have the voyager First Edition Primes? Because my Wal-Mart is pushing out TF with army toys and Rescue Bots, and there's practically nothing there, it's worse every time. My Target has tons of older DOTM toys, zero Prime, and Toys R Us has barely any Prime and just a bunch of Scan Series, along with a few older DOTM voyagers.

    I'm worried that RID will take over and push FE out before I can get Bulkhead and Optimus, and I'll get stuck with the crappy Prime and a Bulkhead which might also be crappy, who knows? But anyway, do a lot of people in the US get FE already and I'm on the verge of missing FE Prime and Bulk, or do I just have to wait with everyone else?

    ALSO, is FE going to go off-shelf shortly after RID comes on?

    Ebay:
    You know what helps and what people aren't doing. Complain to the stores main offices about the distribution. I did this but a single person isn't going to get their notice. Write in to them, call them. Get noticed.

    But is Voyager FE common around the US? And will FE get killed as soon as RID is out? And my TRU said that they never know what's in their truck until they open it, but they said they'd get a truck on the 1st, which is not the same month as this one obviously, so I have a strong feeling TFP of some form will be in there. I'm just afraid that I'm going to have to rely on eBay for TFP FE Voyager Optimus.

    You will.

    The Voyager FEs, Entertainment Pack, Cliffjumper and Vehicon never got released in America.

    Yeah the only people who have First Edition Voyagers in America are those who bought the Japanese versions or imported them from Canada.

    Unfortunately it seems like they're not going to arrive here in the states.

    Oh, really? I just told my sister last night to look for the first three items you listed! :lol  (I live 2 hrs away from a TRU; she lives 10 min from one).

    Isn't the FE line a TRU exclusive? You will never find them at Walmart.

    I'm not sure if it's intentionally exclusive or if nobody else bothered to order any. Store exclusives usually have a sticker saying so.

    Saw tons of FE at TRU, but never did see any ever at Target or Walmart.
    Last time at TRU there was no FE anymore, though, and the time before there was one Bumblebee.

    The only ones to be out so far (... and possibly at all) are Bumblebee, Arcee, and Starscream at TRU.
