While I cannot know if this is true for other places around the country, I have a feeling my situation mirrors most other places. See, before Christmas Bumblebee was clogging the shelves at most of my local retailers. After Christmas I can only find one or two at any location. Most of the DotM stock as been wiped out. What was once an unsalable mass of stock has been reduced to a mere piddling of what it once was and the Bumblebees have been annihilated. See, Hasbro knows what it's doing. Everything has been in preparation for the Christmas season. This happens every year and somehow a large number of people here always forget it. We're not flooded with Bumblebees, they SOLD. They sold like hotcakes that sell well. Everyone who complained about the Bumblebees and predicted they would be an inescapable mass until they all got shunted to the discount chains, please, pay attention to this! I am going to be so damned disappointed in you guys if you forget what happened this time and start complaining again next year. If I see any of that again next year, I'm going to reply with a snarky comment and link to this thread. The shame will be unbearable and you will probably need to go to a shrink to learn how to deal with it. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
