    I stopped at my local toys r us to see if there was any GdO voyagers , tere wasn't intact there was no gdo figures at all , but what I did see was a fresh case of generations tots on the pegs by that I mean warpath sky shadow kup and wheeljack, like two full pegs filled like try we're just put out. These weren't tere maybe a few weeks ago I'm really surprised these are still floating around let alone a fresh case

    It happens from time to time, last X-mas our local TRU pulled an entire case of ROTF deluxes out of no where, not a particularly desirable wave either IIRC.

    Son, Figure out how to grammar, you're making Ohioans look bad. Also, your TRU must not be very busy.

    Yeah come to think of it I saw the ROTF last Christmas too , it's weird there's more old then new when there's plenty of new to go around

    Sorry I'm typing this quickly on my phone I'm multitasking lol

    they've been doing this for a while actually. Since FOC came out, all of my area had also restocked on Wheeljack's wave of Generations

    Think that's weird, I went to TRU today and throughout all the TF Prime, Botshots, Bumblebees, and fresh row of MP TC. In the corner of the shelf sits an Animated Bulkhead, like yo sup yeah I know you see me.

    if anyone sees a clerk putting out Real Gear figs, call Mulder and Scully- the fix is in, Aliens enroute.

    Walmart must be latin for "dustbowl" because it's beyond a drought here.

    My guess is they are picking them up at nearby TJMaxx and Marshall's on the cheap and trying to flip emm in the store. LOL J/K but it damn near feels like it at times when you see them restock the stuff.

    Perhaps tru is buying unsold stock from Hasbro for discounted prices like Ross and tj maxx . That would suck since they'd be making more profit than those other stores.

    I would love to see some animated stuff pop back up in my TRU. I passed up on Animated figures when they were out and have been regretting it ever since.

    On a side note. I wish there were earlier waves of Generations put back on shelves too. Would really like to get a Blurr, Drift and Tracks =[, but I guess that's what I get

    They're probably making up for lost times when people were searching far and wide for Warpath to no avail.

    I've seen quite a few deluxe Animated figures at Rite Aid stores in Olympia and Tacoma. Probably because they're $18.99 each, which is absurd.

    Real humor would have been all the Generations Cliffjumpers coming back out.
