    Well since its a hasbro list I guess it must be true.


    Edt: upon further inspection the list looks more like Hasbro's shelfwarmers of the christmas season and they know it.

    I dunno, kiddies do love the gimmicks. I mean, no one was expecting Ultimate Bumblebee to sell all that well, but he sold HOTCAKES everywhere I've seen.

    you can still get him on walmart .com

    I think it was more of an issue that his stocking method was 1 at a time.


    But regardless, this means scalpers will jump on the new prime

    That KOTA deserves a spot on that list. Everytime I see that on the HTS site I wish I was a kid again so I could ask for that and ride around it. Awesome for Halloween, dress up like bam bam and ride around on it with a club.

    Well, if you mean he didn't sell as many UNITS as, say, deluxe Bumblebee, you're right, but I highly doubt Hasbro ever expects large toys to.
    The fact is, every store I went to had trouble keeping Ultimate Bumblebee in stock-- they'd put two more out and they'd be gone again a few days later. Usually with most HUGE items like that, you can still see them on clearance a year or two later, but I pretty much never saw Ultimate BB again in stores by the time '08 rolled around. And I live in a very poor county, mind you, so big-ticket items practically never sell well here.

    20 bucks that Roll Out Optimus Prime could kick your asses and do it with your daughters.

    Yeah I went there, that toy is badass.

    These lists are always the expensive and/or "flagship" products, largely because the holiday season is when the bigger, pricier items are expected to (hopefully) move.
