Let's hear some love for those toys that never seem to leave the shelves!
Sideways = FREAKING AWESOME!
Here in the Philippines, I am saddened to see these warming the shelves:
- ROTF Bludgeon
- 25th Anniversary Prime (even at 70% off, lots are warming space)
Those are pretty good figures, IMO.
I am also sorry to see ROTF Legends Springer warming the pegs, but for a different reason, I wish they would just replace those figures with Legends Wave 6 at all the stores...
I think you're the envy of a lot of TF fans right now. XD
I feel sorry for all those Animated Ratchets still on shelves. It's not that bad of a toy, and the poor guy doesn't deserve it.
Long Haul's shelfwarming here a bit actually, along with (obviously) Wheelie and Chromia.
Also shelfwarming here: Mudflap, Tuner Mudflap and the Ice Cream Twins.
Thanks for giving me my own thread
My neighborhood shops got a bit of every franchise gathering dust: Encore Ironhide and Ratchet, Universe 2.0 legends, deluxes and voyagers, Energon scouts, deluxes from the 2007 Movie, 25th anniversary Prime, early waves of Transformers: Animated, etc.
Blazing Lockdown was a giant shelfwarmer.... I passed on it myself numerous time. But when I needed a plastic fix and got it one day, I wondered why I had waited so long..... it's by far my favorite deco of the mold.
Long Haul is definitely another one. And these days, Dirge. Great mold, but doesn't seem to be flying off the shelves (er, no airplane pun intended).
surprisingly the newest wave of deluxe's minus Armorhide are shelfwarming in my area. All full pegs of the newest wave and 1 or 2 armorhides...
I'll give you $15 for one.
From the available photos I always thought the movie Dreadwing mold looked awful. (And I saw them shelfwarming.) Then I got one in an ebay lot and found out it's actually pretty nice!
In my neck of the woods you can't throw a dead cat without hitting a TFA Blitzwing. Shame too, I really like that mold.
Well, for around here its the twins, jolt and HA skids for the main ShelfWarmers
Hey! Lists, everybody loves list right?
(It might just be my area but) Animated Shockwave: What's not to love (and don't say "The whole animated line" >_>) One of the best versions of one of the most important and under appreciated characters in the TF lore!
Cybertron Scout Scattershot: Is still enjoying seating at Big Lots nationwide, yet he's covered with guns and awesome
Stratosphere: Yes he has ski-feet, so what? Still one of the best movie toys because of his epic scale.
"Fearswoop": Now that it's on sale for $7 you really have no excuse not to get this guy and the crazy color scheme. (Admittedly I'm biased since Hooligan was the first jet TF I actually remember getting).
Universe Cheetor: One of the best beast modes ever.
Real Gear Robots (the whole line): These were awesome! Most of them were 1:1 scale or close to it and even had an homage to Laserbeak! (You can't have a proper movie Soundwave without MP3 player Laserbeak!).
TFU Dx Cheetor was a shelfwarmer before, along with other TFU Deluxes, but when they were sold on clearance they disappeared after a while.
The sale price converted to US$ is around $27, not bad, but the shipping wouldn't make it cost efficient.
LET'S GET BOLDIN'.
Cybertron Mudflap was positively unsellable. Solid gimmicks though, and an innovative transformation. If they ever released a redeco that weren't ugly as hell, I'd probably pick it up.
Classics Mirage shelfwarmed like no other Classics figure, but he's one of the best-engineered molds in the line hands-down. It's the only mold I've bought three times. Alex Kubalsky is a miracle worker.
Animated Blackarachnia is undoubtedly the best version of her there's ever been. (Yes, I know, that's not saying much.) Grappling hooks/winches are a gimmick that's tragically underused. Makes for fun display options.
MP Skywarp has been warming Walmart shelves around my way since November. I got one for Xmas, but I'm hoping to find him on clearance soon so I can get another one to keep in jet mode.
Over here, ROTF Scouts can't seem to move. Shame too, since most of them are some of the coolest, most characterful toy-only characters in ages.
