    Update 2:35 pm

    A few hours after I started this post i found myself at TRU looking at all the new TFs i could want. Scored a Voyager shockwave, Voyager megs, delux bb (I dont care what people say I like him)and roadbuster (no topspin) but they also had plenty of the new generation stuff. Im soo mad that i didnt have enough money to get them all. /

    I got shafted in the sense that I wasted time going to a store that hadn't put out any DOTM stock. But I didn't take pictures to commemorate the occasion.

    It's not a surprise if DOTM items are not out on the floor to sell. If I recall on the panphlets that were packed with the RTS wave 1 figures, the advertisment for DOTM stated " Look for DOTM products the week of May 16th" I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure that is what it mentioned. If they are not out today check later this week. Don't rush it, they'll make it to the shelves..

    Yeah, I don't expect to see anything new (let alone DOTM stuff) for at least a week (if not longer), so I'm not wasting a trip today, let alone with a camera that I need to dick around trying to recharge the batteries for & hope that they last the entire car ride. Guess I should still be on the lookout for stuff like Generations Jazz & Windcharger, but it's been so long since he's been released that I honestly don't expect to find him either & I'm really in no rush. The next time I'm in the city for something I'll check Toys R Us & the other Wal-Mart, but other than that, I'm just gonna troll the interweb.

    Also, is this topic secretly also a giant penis joke? I mean, what with "shafted" & the whole "bigger on the inside" being erected in the OP...

    Please kindly get your head out of the gutter. The "biger on the inside" refers to the Dr Who tardis. Grow up.

    What about Astro Train?

    I mean surely, he's also a candidate for being "bigger" on the inside...

    Well, with no context, you could kind of see where he was coming from...

    Anyway, I'm going out later...don't know if I expect to find anything, but here's hoping.

    Dude, my Target told me that they hadn't even got them in stock yet! That's total bs. They were soo busy stocking up Cars 2 because thats the obvious summer blockbuster.

    However. I decided to stop at this run-down Big K-Mart that I had to pass to my next destination. I was happy to see they had a small section of DOTM. I was lucky and scored exactly what I had wanted: Shockwave, Barricade, and Topspin. There was only 1 left of each so I quickly nabbed them!

    I was really disappointed with Target. They really set up nice displays for a lot of their merchandise, and you'd think they'd be repared for something like this. But I digress.

    I won't be looking for DOTM toys again until DLX Mirage, Wheeljack, Soundwave, and Leadfoot hit stores, so I get some time to relax now.

    I've noticed that my local Wal-Mart tends to put out new stuff on Tuesdays. So maybe the stores are just waiting for their normal stock date given so many stores still have movie related toys left from the last film.

    Like I said in the toy release thread, I hurried to my Target early, before work, and nothing but Cars 2 toys. Only TFs they had were a skullgrin, cliffjumper, thunderwing, and some other shitty gen line toy.

    To top it all off, the pallets that were out at the time had zero DotM product on them.

    Hopefully, after work, I'll find something left that the scalpers were kindly enough to leave behind.

    Reading this thread does not make me optimistic...has anyone tried Meijer? They have a pretty massive toy section, so I'm beginning to think they might be my best bet...

    I have 2 Walmarts, 2 Targets, and a TRU in my area. One of them is bound to have something.
