    Transformers Attacktix figures are being pulled from the shelves of Target and WalMart stores. This is reported to be to make room for movie product. If you still need your Attacktix figures, you'd best buy them up ASAP before they're gone.

    Apparently this is a "return to vendor" scenario. There's no word on whether or not these items will be re-released in the future.

    yikes.

    is this true?

    Attacktix aren't that big. I figure they could free up 3 pegs at most.

    It's about damn time. Those things have been clogging the shelves for WAY too long.

    Why would they pull them when they got new ones, like the G1 figs, in the works?

    I have never seen an Attackix in Canada, and I was never a fan of them.

    I thought the movie line was coming out several months from now, aside from the preview figures? What else is there to release between now and then? Because it ain't Tits where I live, as nobody other than TRUs seems to be interested in stocking them. Classics has practically run its course. Cybertron's done.

    They should pull the Demolishors Alt Skids instead.

    And, hopefully in the near future, Cybertron Demolishors!

    No loss if those things go. Perhaps we'll see the movie preview figures come out a tad earlier.

    I will try to get clarification on whether or not these are just those UBER large sets, or if these also include the minor 2 pack random figures.

    Definitely Kicky. Let us know. If it's the larger ones then I can see why those are being pulled. One Walmart near me has so many, they actually migrated to an over stock shelf. I wouldn't be sad to see those go.

    They need to recall all the cybertron figures that have become perminant fixtures everywhere along with any alt Skids, Rollbars and ricochet.
