    Went to my local toys r us on middlebelt and 7mile in livonia, i asked an employee who works the stock room he said they usually recieve new stocks of randomly packaged tfp figures every tuesday, only way i found out its random is cause they only had ONE soundwave in their current stock which i got, the rest were wheeljacks, bumblebees, and cliffjumpers, in general they had one box of each line of tfp toys but i asked around other stores and they were recieving the figures as well

    P.S if this isnt a proper news post dont comment just close it.

    Just felt you'd guys'd like to know case you live here in michigan

    ...Randomly packaged...? The case assortment is pretty well established. Wave 1 assortment is 1x Soundwave, 2x Cliffjumper, 2x Wheeljack, 3x Bumblebee. I doubt Hasbro would do a random case assortment. That'd be fucked up. Would be like a blind box/bag, but this would be a blind case. :lol 

    Open up a blind case and get 8x Bumblebee. Yeah...

    I'm just wondering how Argos (catalogue store) hands these out. A central hub gets the cases then opens them up distributes them haphazardly to all the stores?

    That was probably what the guy meant considering he seemed either new or didnt know about the assortment hasbro sends them

    Well if you think about it, this probably happen. Well, maybe not the 8 BB example, but where something gets fucked up or set off to the side, only to get filled with a replacement. I've had this happen plenty of times when it comes to cardgames, even when it came to assortments of starter decks that were supposed to be 60/40 or whatever in terms of different kinds.

    Pretty sure I've also read people qqing about it forums, too.


    Or this.

    Ebay:
    The case assortment is brokedown like this 3x Bumblebee, 1x Soundwave, 2x Cliffjumper and 2x Wheeljack. No random figures.

    All of these figures have been found at US retail already, but please feel free to post in the Michigan Sightings thread HERE and share with the local guys in the area :)
