    I know here we just got the display up Friday. Note the fact that this was a full display minus one or two sold figures. I picked up Starscream then. Today I went back to get Bumble Bee, thank God he was there, one of the last 2. The only other one left was one Astrotrain. Wow, almost sold out in less than 24 hours.

    The only store near me that sells TFs doesn't like to bring in new stock. I have to wait untill I get to a TRU. By then, they're usualy sold out of most of the Classics. :cry

    Honestly? Collecting dust. Yes, I said collecting dust.

    I can't speak for the Erie stores, but the Wal-Mart Supercenter here in Meadville isn't selling squat.

    They sold one Rodimus, one Astrotrain.

    The rest of the Deluxes (plus a second case), and all of the Voyagers (2 cases) are still there.

    They're not sellin' for shite.

    EDIT: I feel kinda dumb now. I drove 52 miles each way to an out of state TRU that had 'em, and now I see my Wal-Mart stocked to the brim with 'em.... But, knowing my luck, had I not bought 'em when I did, this store would probably be out of stock.

    The only place I've seen them has been TRU, and they've gone through at minimum two cases of each size class, possibly more. I know for sure it's at least two though, because rattrap007 bought some, told me they were there, and they were gone by the time I got there. A week later they got more in and I bought the Deluxes. The next day I went in again and two Voyagers were there and the Deluxes were gone so I got the last of what was left. They seem to sell out the same day they get them in, or close to it. I've heard Target has had them too but have not seen them there. My wife and I are in Target at least 2-3 times a week for non-toy related things, so they've got to be selling out quick there also for me to miss them.

    So my impression is that they're flying off the shelves so far. But it's really much too early to gauge interest in the line yet because that always happens with a new line. Cybertron was a bitch to find for the first month because cases would sell out almost immediately.

    They're immediately gone once they're put out. No one's hardly touching the 20th Primes though

    Geez. Why does Meadville suck so bad then? Don't get me wrong, it's nice to see new product on the shelves, but this is ridiculous!

    They're flying off the shelves here. My local Walmart, notorious for not restocking frequently, got about 3 or 4 cases of deluxes towards the beginning of this week. As of yesterday they were ALL gone.

    They're selling, but from what I've seen, the kids are still into Cybertron. Classics hasn't yet reached their lexicon.

    Selling like crazy with "slightly older" fans, the younger fans refer to them as the "old Transformers" and yet those are the same ones sneering at BW 10th. "Ewww. They just turn into animals."*

    *Witnessed just here today 10/14/2006 @TRU in NOVA (Northern Virginia).

    Well only one store has put out one case of Deluxes, but those sold thru very fast. Know more then Target gets off their ass and actually puts them out.

    Well I went to Wal-Mart tonight. 1 Megatron and 1 Optimus Prime sold. The rest of 'em are still there. =( This does not bode well for me in the future to find newer figures.

    Oh and Tenebrouser, who the hell is that woman in your sig? DAYUM.

    They're selling well in my area. Granted, mostly because collectors got there first. I know there's a TRU where I work where the collectors who work there bought the first 2 cases of voyagers and the first 2 cases of deluxe.
