    These new movie toys seem to be selling like hotcakes...in my area at least...phoenix.

    What are the chances of new molds for...oh say Bonecrusher?

    Leader OP vs Deluxe Bonecrusher is laughable at best.

    Bonecrusher definitely should have been a voyager...I am however quite happy with the deluxe mold of him.

    Anyways, from what I've gathered things aren't selling too fast around here (Anaheim/Brea, CA).

    They don't seem to be selling all that fast over here in Long Beach/Lakewood/Cerritos/Fullerton, CA. I'd like to think that they're selling faster than the Spiderman toys did.

    Yeah, Voyager Bonecrusher would be love. But Deluxe BC's pretty sweet too.

    Dunno about selling like "hotcakes" around here. The only place I know of them selling really well is about 30 minutes away from here and it was mostly about of idiots buying a few cases worth hoping to make a killing on Ebay. :/

    I hate those people. And so does the unpacker who works at a local Walmart. I stuck around after filling my cart with transformers and chatted for a bit. :)

    The only ones I saw that seemed to be moving were Blackout, Barricade, and RV Prime.

    The FABs seemed to sell really well at my Target. And I think the Cyber Stompers and Leader Prime. Anything else that was noticeably diminished was done by me. :p

    Seemed to be a fair bit of interest around by me, some of it was cos some kids were seeing what I was looking at on the shelves and then dragging their mothers over, everytime I went in an Argos shop most of the catalogues were on the transformers page so I don't know if that's representative.

    Toys seem to be selling briskly around my area, but I think it being the first day or two after the 'street date' colors things, with fans, collectors, and wanna-be scaplers chomping at the bit. Probably will level off quickly, and have another surge of buying once the movie actually hits theaters.

    Both the Super Wal-mart and Target in my area have sold down quite a bit in two days. Target actually sold all of their Basics at one point. When the movie hits tho, that's when the feeding frenzy will really begin.

    From what I see, the toys are also selling pretty well in my country...one of the better sellers I notice is "Leader Class" Optimus. A couple of retailers had him sold out.

    So what have you picked up, dude? I'm thinking of picking up just "Leader Class" Optimus. The rest of the designs aren't appealing to me.

    Well, in all honesty we have been in a "new TF drought" for a couple months...so the feeding frenzy isn't all that surprising...then add the scalpers (Which I certainly saw more than my share...I know a guy who bought EVERY Arcee from 3 different Targets to scalp! And with Prime being such an iconic character they nab him too).
