    Hey guys,

    I visited my local WM today and discovered that they are now in the process of resetting their toy aisles. Nothing too spectacular, however, I did get a look at the product placement plans in the action figure area:

    1) They have a spot reserved for Alternators

    2) Didn't see a spot for DVD Prime (he's already on clearance for $50, so maybe we'll see some deeper discounts in the very near future *crosses fingers*)

    3) They had no less than 6 pegs dedicated to Deluxe Classics

    4) Still have shelf space reserved for Cyb. voyagers and leaders

    5) Have a buttload of space reserved for new TMNT movie merchandise

    You guys see any additional notable stuff at your WMs?

    I was shocked to see 4 pegs dedicated to Cl. Minicons on the new plan-o-gram.

    No alts or minicons on the planogram I saw. They did have a spot for the 6 inch titaniums(which they haven't carried in the past).

    I couldn't even find them on the toy reset sheets. They're definitely moving down the aisle somewhere else.

    Nobody should flip out and decide Walmart won't be carrying Transformers based on that though...I didn't look very hard. I basically glanced at the two or three closest to where the Transformers are now.

    Mine has a spot for the Classics Deluxe, Voyager, Mini-cons (which I have yet to see), and the Prime vs. Megatron set. They have no spot for Alternators, 6" Titaniums, or the 3" Titaniums that I could see but they never carried any of those other than 3" Titaniums but only the Star Wars figures. If I have a reason to leave town to look for figures, this is the first time in a long time that I have not had a reason to go Transformers hunting since I ordered most and the lack of new products, I will check other towns around me. I have not seen many Alternators in a long time (no Optimus or Camshaft but one Mirage) and the 6" Titaniums aren't any better (saw and bought both wave two figures and finally saw Scourge Saturday but other than that only wave 1 two or three months after release). I hope searching gets easier but I know that is a dream.

    :lol 

    A reset is one thing...I'll be impressed if these basetards actually stock anything. This store appears to be either low on help, cheap, or both. Takes forever for anything to get done there.

    And yeah, KidDynamite, the reset TFs were relocated a couple aisles away from their previous location.

    I was at a Walmart in Frankfort Kentucky last week and I saw no less than 100 TF Titaniums, I am not exaggerating here, most of them were Scourge and Primal with one or two Thundercrackers thrown in.

    I didn't think WW Megs was out yet? Are you sure it wasn't the GIJoe Megs from wave one?

    i just got home from my wally world and they have space on the planograms for ALts, Cybertron dlx, leader,ultra and minicons; classics dlx, voyager and minicons; three and six inch titaniums, although the six inch titaniums were down the isle a ways. Also they had a place for and had a few of the Prime vs Megs two pack.

    Mine has EXPANDED the TF section into the Lego area. Tons of the 20 Megs/Prime/Jetfires. Still no 6" Titaniums which pisses me off, but is of course BBTS'es gain.

    Its now 50/50 Classics/Cybertron for the most part with a few Alternators left and those Attactix things. (Which could be amusing, but it plays out more like a sub par wanna be Crossbows and Catapults if anyone remembers that classic game.) A handful of the little dumb Titaniums and you have a very confused Transformers section.

    But considering how gutted many areas of the store were after Christmas its not all bad really.
