    damn it hasbro.....argh warning of a rant....

    it is just so stupid what hasbro is doing....all the f'in ratchets and blackaracknias....how does hasbro expect to make money if they keep just sending out mostly just those figures...

    you see i can't really go hunt for figures cause 1.i don't have a driver's liscens and 2.my mom can't really drive right now and my dad is always working so i am very limited to searching...but ever SINGLE store i go to is LOADED with the damn things.....i am so tempted to break my BA and ratchet just so i can have something to buy...i have been searching and searching for leader megs and wave three but my local wal-mart can't even get them in because of the accursed BA's and Ratchet's cloggin the shelves. it is just insane that hasbro is doin this...i have gotten so furious at this that i actually HOPE hasbro loses money over this ordeal.....it is just stupid

    well rant over

    Same here. I was looking for Animated Prowl, but all I found were those two and that Prime vs. Megatron two pack.

    It's NOT Hasbro's fault. Hasbro sent out the same amount as wave one. The reason there are so many is because no one wants them. Every kid wants Bumblebee, no kid wants the "old robot." Simple.

    Do you think it might actually be the retailers fault for ordering so much of wave 2?

    Store shipments are very hectic dude, trust me, my cousin works at Wal Mart and always tells me about how they keep toys for months before putting them on the shelf

    Eh, don't feel bad... so far the only new stuff I've seen is the first wave of Marvel Crossover Transformers despite all the sightings of wave 3 animated deluxes, wave 1 animated leaders, wave 1 universe deluxes, wave 1 universe voyagers and wave 1 universe ultras. But don't worry... the stuff will show up eventually and, FYI, everytime I've unpacked a box of wave 2 animated deluxes Ratchet & Blackarachnia are in no greater supply than any of the other figures (save one or two who are only packed one per or aren't there at all from the first wave... it varies depending on which revision of the wave you open up)... so it's more of a 'they aren't selling right now while the other characters are' kind of deal if you ask me. Just be patient and you'll find what you're looking for.

    did you try the junkion?

    hell,
    I can hook you up with all of wave 1 and 2 plus voyagers(currently the stores by me have them and roll out prime)

    And BTW HASBRO has nothing to do with it,the store orders the product thru their warehouse.Worst case they can order you a set online and pick up in store without paying shipping.

    If you want one at a time though you are out of luck unless you complain to the store manager.

    Human beings have developed a remarkable skill over the years.
    It's called patience.

    Perhaps you should have some?

    I'm certain that you don't NEED new toys right now.
    Yes you might want them but 'I want' doesnt get.

    Give it time and they will show up.
    In the meantime don't panic, you won't die because you can't get new toys.

    I just want to say that I usually don't tink it's Hasbro's fault for stuff like this either. However, in this situation, I think it might be. Unless I'm wrong, and I could be, Wave 1 had 4 deluxes. So, ordering say 4 boxes should get you two of each per box. Now, the stores probably figure to order as many as wave 2 as the did wave 1, so they do that, but instead they get 4 Ratchets and 4 BAs per box. So, they are getting twice as many, and they really aren't the most popular characters. I'm not upset about this really, but I can see it bothering people and clogging shelves.

    Yeah, that's the main assortment (the one just labeled wave 2), but there are a couple revisions that I've seen come through my store that even out the numbers a little (I work overnight at Target). Still, you're right... they did load up the initial run of wave 2 with loads of BA's and Ratchet's which does seem like a bad decision.
