    Is anyone else's Walmart in their area majorly overflowing with DOTM figures currently? I'm just curious because mine has three different aisles dedicated to this line. I have never witnessed one specific line of Transformers having as much as I saw today. I figured I'd ask if this is the same for anyone else and if anyone possibly knew why. Hopefully this means I won't have a problem getting any other future desired figure from the line down the road.

    Yes, regular toy display and also overflowing into another section. Same as Target. They have one or two extra endcaps.

    Weird. My Targets and TRUs have never really been overflowing with a Transformer line before. At least not as much as the Walmart I go to/went to today.

    No surprise.
    At my local Walmart, there's an endcap of deluxes, another one stuffed full of leaders SP and BB, and yet another one full of HA's, cyberverse, and an army of voyager Optimus Primes. Plus their regular spot in the aisle.

    I can't recall if ROTF had these many toys either at one time. One Walmart has a separate cube merchandiser in the aisle with voyagers and deluxes. Another has a tub filled with deluxes. Crazy!

    It's nuts, dudes. I also don't remember ROTF being anything like this either.

    Cars 2 stuff is overflowing a lot more than the TF: DOTM toys in my TRU, Walmart, and Target stores.

    the dotm toys are selling here. we had at least 500 deluxes, 100 voyagers, with 5 different sections with transformers. the main transformers section is almost empty of deluxes and voyagers, only main deluxes left are an end cap. we got one section with about 50 voyagers left i would say, and the rest of the sections have been depleted

    it is goin good

    The one closest to me is loaded with DOTM figures. They take up the whole regular Transformers section and wrap around the edge of the aisle into the one behind it. There are also multiple displays in the main aisles. Wal Mart seems to be the store with the most DOTM, none of the others around here carry nearly as much.

    A Walmart near me placed all DOTM merchandise on clearance prices (50% off) during the movie's opening weekend. At the time there was an over abundance of toys. It has leveled out since.

    Yeah, mine is full of wave one and two stuff. I managed to find a lone deluxe Prime among the hundreds of other deluxes.

    Voyager Prime though.... His abundance is rediculous. I'm almost tempted to buy one just to thin the herd.

    Sadly my Walmart is the same way,but instead of overflow of deluxes (which are quite a few),they are swamped with Voyagers,on the main shelf they have about 35 or 40,and then on the endcap near to those it have 5 or 6 shelves full of them so I say probably 200 Voyagers in all.And they ain't going NO WHERE anytime soon.

    But good news I bet after Christmas those will get marked down cheap to clear them out to make way for Prime figure,then all us TF fans can get them for half price or better and troop build,just think a platoon of Voyager Ironhides.


    Edit: Also forgot but Target and TRU doesn't have this problem either,they only stock a few at a time unlike wally world,which is disappointing IMO as they sell theres
    faster around here and I usually miss out,so I guess its a toss up which you prefer.I would rather have too many as not enough,that way you can find something.

    It was in some places. Especially when the in aisle displays and endcaps started to get drawn down. Some Walmarts around here never restocked RotF after Wave 4 there was so much leftover. Heck, one Walmart around here had so many RotF Voyagers for so long that they had a backcap FULL of Demolisher, The Fallen, Ironhide, and Mixmaster well into Spring 2010.

    With the Walmarts around here, any overflow has been due to the stores consolidating the 3+ TF sections back down to just the main TF section and one end cap.

    Sadly there have still been no sightings of HA Roadbuster. Thankfully I picked up one in CA for Botcon.

    My walmarts cyberverse Commander stock is out of control. Takes up a quarter of the aisle. Easily twenty pegs branching out from the regular Dark of the moon Home.

    Then we have Two sidecaps, a endcap, and the Kiosk for dark of the moon.

    Target has Three endcaps and the home. One of those endcaps is up by the registers for the deluxe exclusives.

    The florescent lighting at my Kmart has not been replaced over the Movie action figure section. Its to dark to tell what they have exactly.

    Just got back from my local wally world....had to get Rio.

    5 sections for DotM. No kidding. All of them Gorged with toys. No leader Ironhide or wave 2 voyagers. Few wave 3 deluxes around. Only 1 Laserbeak. No HA besides Bee.
