    First off, apologies, I don't know whether this should be in Toys, General Discussion or News.
    (Mods: Please feel free to shift if needed.)

    But, yes, anyway, the Toy Retailers Association has published the dozen most-wanted toys for Christmas 2009 (I don't know how that is measured but I imagine I would like that job).

    ROTF voyagers are listed on it.

    The dozen is listed, alphabetically I believe, on this BBC News page (though the story is about cheaper toys dominating this year):
    BBC NEWS | Business | Cheaper toys 'are Christmas hits'

    Thoughts. Questions.

    Why voyagers, particularly?

    And what would you like for Christmas, btw?

    voyagers are a good size:cost ratio.

    they're substantial enough to be decent present, but cheap enough not to break the bank.

    And despite this Hasbro UK still see fit to cancel stuff like the ice cream truck wave and Voyager wave 5 without any explanation :rolleyes:

    Cancel the ICT wave? I saw, purchased, and gave an ICT deluxe to my cousin only two days ago...

    Not doubting you, though. Does this mean if I want one for myself I gotta grab it now?

    I'd recommend it to be on the safe side. Strictly speaking, that wave was "delayed" not "canceled" though in the past one was as good as the other. Not so much now.

    Voyager Wave 5 is a true pity, though. That one I don't understand.

    Top twelve? Aren't these lists usually top ten? Maybe the person making the list is a TF fan and saw it only came in at twelve and decided to make it a top twelve list so TF would get a mention. :) 
    I'd have really thought Deluxes would've been there instead of Voyagers as they're usually the best sellers. I suppose when Christmas comes kids tend to upgade their wants and next up is Voyager. Just a pity the ROTF Voyagers I've seen over here have been kinda dull, with repaints or redos of '07 characters or that rubbish thing with the big scoopy hands. I did see ROTF Voyager Megatron in a department store yesterday though which was quite tempting as it didn't look as shit as the Leader version.
