    Sources have informed us that employee bulletin boards in Target stores are posting information regarding the estimated time of arrival of future Transformers stock. The information below indicate the DPCI and ETA for each size class. There is no indication if this is for a specific wave of each size class or if this is the ETA for ANY future Transformers stock.

    087-06-0951 Movie Deluxe 10/14
    087-06-1021 Movie Voyager 10/28
    087-06-1041 Movie Leader 10/14
    087-06-1063 Fast Action Battlers 11/4
    087-06-1177 Cyber Stompin' Robot 10/7
    087-06-1886 Ultimate Bumblebee 8/19


    Please note that dates are subject to change and that figures may arrive sooner that listed. This has already been seen in the case of Ultimate Bumblebee, with sightings coming in since yesterday.

    The leaders and deluxes are all I care about, and by the looks of it, it'll be a long, LONG wait for those. Our stores are also known for being the last in the nation to get anything, so bonus.

    I'm guessing by December I'll finally see the next wave of leader class figures. Maybe we'll finally get Megatron in stock then.

    Are these restock dates for after the upcoming reset or are these the only dates period? Maybe new wave restock and not just periodic ones.

    Maybe the bulletin doesn't have the reset that is supposedly happening this week. I thought Dropkick didn't come out until October so that might be his wave and 08 BB is hitting this weekend...*crossed fingers*

    BTW foster good to see you are okay, hope your loved ones are alright.

    From what I heard, this was actually published with the reset in mind to warn stores of impending shitty looking aisles because the first 8 feet are sparcely stocked. I'll talk to my toy team lead to see if hehears anything different. I must say this is depressing news for myself, being my store's presentation team lead, the aisles are going to look even worse after the reset than they do now with the clearance.

    *What was that? Why yes I am married to my job, sigh. *

    Everyone's ok, thanks for your concern. Good thing I wasn't craving my girlfriend's cooking yesterday, she lives across that bridge from me.

    I hope they are restocked in sufficient quantities to get through the xmas season. The movie has made this line HOT.

    Wow, October and November is a bit of a wait. Ultimate BB is the only one close. Oh, well....I'm sure the end of the year will be here before we know it!

    I giess I got lucky last week when they had 1 case on the pallet with 08 BB, Arcee & Dreadwing. I ripped it open without hesitation. Now I'm after leader Brawl.

    Damn, I can't wait that long. What are the stores going to do in the meantime (no pun intended there :) ) have empty pegs for 2 or 3 months? I know Ult. BB is big, but I doubt he's big enough to cover all that empty space.

    I would assume what they do right before resets and just flex everything to fill holes. Stock out a whole lot of everything else until the new product for these size classes come in. Shit, every target is going to look like Wal-marts now in the toy section.

    Actually, if those are the next restock dates, I'm happy with it. This gives me more time to save up some money for the remaining figures that I need to get. I'll also be getting some b-day money in late November.

    This has got to be bull. No way Target's going to let their aisles have none of the hottest toys of the summer for THREE months, let alone that Hasbro has suddenly decided to stop shipping movie toys until October.

    Big flood in China. 500 dead, billions in lost economic revenue for the country. Ring any bells? I don't think Target really has a choice if that kind of catastrophe is affecting China's factories and exporting.

    I pray that these dates aren't accurate either, but look at the big picture here. I'm sure neither Target nor Hasbro want their toys to be unavailable for months, but you have to figure there's extenuating circumstances.
