    I went to wal mart yesterday and i went down to the TF section guess what i saw....

    1 Cliffjumper
    1 Wheeljack
    2 Soundwave
    maybe 1 Ratchet and.......

    13+ Bumblbees :drunk 

    so for one i have all the toys listed above. second where is Arcee knockout and the others. and Third why are there so many BUMBLEBEES!!!

    For the Powerizers i saw 5 Optimus Prime (I already have this Optimus) and 1 Megatron that i should have bought but didn't fell like it at the time. So where is Bulkhead and Starscream? Its June of 2012 the show started in november of 2010 and I'm still waiting on the toys to be out! :banghead:

    Where are punctuations and grammatical structures?
    The figures you don't see are already is someone's hands. Whether you believe those to be alleged scalpers or determined collectors, that's up to you. I've seen all those figures (plus Vehicons) at Walmart, Target, and TRU even though I'm not actively collecting TFs.

    We've had years to accept the fact that Bumblebees and OPs will outnumber all other characters. Maybe you should too.

    Where are new discussion topics?


    They are out.

    Your choices are buy them on the Internet, or keep looking in local stores.

    That's it.

    Long story short:

    Hasbro's distribution sucks. There are too many Bumblebees and almost just as many Optimus Primes. There's nothing new about this, it's been this way since Transformers Animated/ROTF.

    Ah-ah-ah, no no. The retailers' distribution sucks. Hasbro has no control over any of it.

    I might speculate Hasbro are caught between lowballing retailers and dividend seeking shareholders, such that their best option is actually to ship early waves in large amounts, and worry about the rest later.

    Did you try any other store other than that one Walmart?

    Or did you just go to one store once, and decide to complain?

    Sorry, you're right. I didn't mean to say "distribution", though. I think the term I meant to use was "case assortments". But now that I'm on it, plenty of stores also have shitty distribution.

    There's your problem.

    Walmarts around here have only just begun stocking Wave 3.

    It's the same in my local area. I have yet to see anything past wave one in deluxes or voyagers and I've looked in two walmarts, kmart, toys r us, meijer and two targets.
    I can't believe it's only because of over ordering wave one, distribution factors in somwhere.

    I haven't seen past wave 2 as of yet, and frankly I don't care. I still have yet to find a Soundwave figure. And I saw an Arcee when I bought my Ratchet and didn't get it. Never saw it again...

    This. Some stores take longer to recieve stuff than others. You must be patient, or reach your goal, you will not.
