    So, shelfwarmers that people thought would sell, but didn't? Is that what this thread is about?

    Yeah, Waco either gets things really late or early, but always have plenty of everything once it hits. A lot of people in Texas couldn't fine Grindor or in particular, Long Haul, but Waco had and still has plenty. Heck, Waco still hasn't put out the MP Skywarps (which the Walmart STILL have in storage).

    Long Haul and Grindor have been shelf-warming in my Walmart for months. There are well over 20 of each. It's crazy, because there isn't one single other Voyager on the shelf besides those two. And if they don't move, I might never see Bludgeon or Mindwipe...

    I was always surprised that Leader Animated Megatron shelfwarmed around here, but that's probably due to his size.

    Here, we have about a dozen each of voyager Mixmaster and The Fallen.
    but walk around to the Landfill aisle and it gets worse.
    8-10 Voyager Primes
    6-7 voyager Starscream
    4 Voyager Megs

    and the pegs are clogged with Wheelie, Dead End and Rampage.

    kinda wish we still had a Bud's just down the block to put these.

    Wheelie and Rampage are all I see in terms of Deluxes anywhere in the last few months. As for Long Haul/Grindor shelfwarming, I just found them for the first time this week, and there were only a few of each.

    Devastator is shelfwarming but only because it's shipped to my stores in huge quantities. There are at least a dozen at each, though I do see people buy them.

    Wheelie Arcee and Chromia are the only shelfwarming deluxes here in RI. I have only seen one LongHaul and one Grindor and a few Leader Jetfires. This is freaking ridiculous.

    :lol  I was actually being serious, not condescending. Although if some of my posts have come off like that, I'm sorry. School is killing me. :/ Perhaps I should use more emoticons.

    Although considering the influx of members without the ability to use the shift key or use the spell checker, there does needs to be a balance.
