    We are know Tuner Mudflap is perhaps the most famous shelfwarmer of all time (I know there others but I don't remember them all)

    Since Generations and HFTD has been out, there some great figures as well as some bad( well unpopular) figs....So who do you think is the new Tuner Mudflap?
    I think, sea attack ravage ( do we really need that many ravages, made the mail in kinda pointless) dlx ironhide ( always need to be a voyager, pluss bb taller than him) jetblade ( boring),Tuner Skids ( what the point really?),SASS(pointless imo, plus takara better), elita-1 (since they don't combine, what the point?) Elect Jolt ( o_0)...hmm looks like HFTD line has the most shelfwarmers....

    Who is it in your area?

    (I think) Generations has less distribution overall(?)... but it would probably be a Deluxe since retailers order them in greater numbers.


    Out of HFTD... i'm thinking Battle Blade Bumblebee because it's been in at least three of the four DX wave shipped so far and at this point almost everybody has at least one Dx BB.


    One of the points of HFTD is to 'dump' repaints of pre-existing molds in the space between movies, so as to squeeze extra revenue out of them.

    Practicly everything for me. I checked TRU and the pegs are FLOODED with the HFTD stuff, the pegs are actually overloaded, and the last toy on the peg is at a 45 degree angle hanging off the peg. Tuner Skids, Elita-1, Hailstorm, etc.

    Tuner Skids, HFTD Seaspray, Generations Cliffjumper and HFTD SAR. And you're looking at this all wrong. You say that Elita doesn't combine so it's pointless, but it the kiddies that buy TFs andI doubt Mr 'I love Bumblebee' is going to know thatshe combines, didn't show in the movie eiter

    Just because you don't like the figures doesn't make them shelf warmers. As is, if I saw that kind of mix on retail shelves, I'd be quite happy (you are citing basically bits of THREE ASSORTMENTS as shelfwarmers)

    Around here, I really can't point to one figure as "shelf warming", though granted, restocking has been so sparse and haphazard that I wonder if some stuff has sold just because there wasn't anything else available (we just got some new deluxes in last night, after THREE MONTHS of having a couple Mudflaps, a Sea Ravage, and two Jetblades be the extent of our local Walmart's deluxe figure stock)

    In my area it's a close tie between sea attack ravage and jetblade. With Ravage winning out by a slight margin. I also see a ton of wfc bumblebee everywehere

    Can't really say there is a definitive shelfwarmer until this line reaches the end of it's life.

    For the movie style figures the one I see the most of is Sea Attack Ravage.

    I don't know if it's the color that makes him stand out so but it seems like I see more War for Cybertron Bumblebee figures than any other Generations toy right now.

    Jetblade so far. I have seen a few pegs dedicated to him in almost every store. I see the first wave Generations moving even if they are slow.

    It's probably going to be Sea Attack Ravage. Seriously haven't they repainted that mold to death already.

    That's what it is my opinion...now as I can see there is a lot of shelfwarming in cities across the country, now some area are slower in other areas....wfc bb and hftd bb are not really shelfwarming, cuz its seems like they are always selling, but they are in every wave...so it more like I'm tired of seeing them...
