    A very reliable source has passed on information to the news staff.

    The street date has been lifted for Transformers Movie toys, stores are now allowed to put out product whenever they want.

    So with all of the random sightings that have been taking place, expect to see more stock show up on shelves at your local retailers anytime now.

    This comes from an anonymous Wal-Mart toy department manager, to reliable news source, to some guy on the street, to Keifer Sutherland who was in Flatliners with Kevin Bacon ;) 

    ***UPDATE***

    A follow up has been received by the news staff here stating that Hasbro has contacted retailers advising them to NOT pull the movie figures off the shelves if they are already out. However, Hasbro is still upholding the street date of June 2nd for the retailers who haven't put up the movie figures for sale.

    So, wait, are all stores still going to have these by June 2nd? It's just that some will get them earlier?

    I wonder if all stores will start to put the stock out, or if some will still hold to that June 2nd date?

    Almost every store already has them and has had them---they were just waiting until they could officially/legally put them on the shelves. No different than DVD's---new DVD's come out on Tuesday, but the stores get the shipments days early--they just can't put them out for sale.

    *In a nasally voice* "Deefuzz your my hero"........
    Wow I knew the movie figs would start to leak after the protoforms where released because the store managers have a tendency to screw up with "preview figures" and just end up throwing all the figures on the shelves.
    I so hope we get the damn figures out in texas.
    I know there in the back of my TRUs but they where abiding the street date so I pray to god there out there.

    Is severe strain to the spending muscle covered by the NHS I wonder?
    Never mind, I'll take my chances with the best of them - Let the frenzy begin and bugger the 'buyers remorse'!

    If this is true, are the online retailers also allowed to sell? I know Joel from BBTS ( or as I refer to him as "my dealer")was waiting until June 2nd. what about walmart.com?

    *sits patiently with the refresh button on bbts*

    Not a huge surprise. There've been so many reports of these being out early that it's not unbelievable Hasbro would just give in and let everybody stock them.
