    A Walmart employee has posted an excerpt from their Spring '09 Toys Modular Guide, revealing that the TF:ROTF toys are to be put out on May 29th, and that they expect it to be the biggest licensed toy line this year.

    The "largest action figure liscence of the year" is the part I really like hearing. I also like that it'll be on shelves a few days before the first movie toyline's release date.

    Looking forward to seeing this line of toys. If the new Leader Prime is any indication of what to expect, we could be in for some surprises.

    Zobovor STILL works at Walmart? I haven't been a regular at a.t.t. in over a decade and still remember his insider info from there. Poor bastard.

    On-topic, I hope this means the exclusive Animated and Universe toys we've seen thus far (Sunstorm, purple Shockwave, Countdown and Darkwind) will ship before the movie push. Of course, this assumes the movie reset will occur the same time at TRU and Target, which I feel is a safe assumption.

    May 29th, which means they'll start popping up on random retail shelves by second week of May.
