    What, you expect the boxes to disintegrate once a set amount of time passes? (although I kinda wish some did)

    I wonder this too. Hasbro needs to learn that a movie can only push product for so long before people stop caring. The retailers need to learn too because they are the ones causing all of the problems, NOT HASBRO.

    It is the retailers fault. I used to work for places like Walmart. They over order shit. Then ruin the line because of it.

    To be fair, Hasbro got this far with Movieverse with good enough results. Plus, it seems the ending of DotM was fully on them.


    Now then... how exactly does one expect retailers to get rid of old movie stock? Trash it, burn it, wish it away? No, retailers want to make SOME type of profit off it. After all, that's why they bought it in the first place. From what I've seen, Target is moving their DotM stuff out at a decent pace, while Walmart is painfully slow.

    Opposite for me, my Target has a ton of DOTM, while my Wal-Mart has no Deluxe, about one Cyberverse every visit, and a few leaders.

    Where do you expect the retailers to do with them? Just throw them away? They're trying to get rid of them by selling it. Want it gone? Buy it, and throw it away yourself, you can be an hero!

    It's true that only Target seems to be offering an financial incentive to buy these, Walmart does care and TRU discount is to price it at what everyone else has had it at.

    At least it could be Worse, When energon was out, I found a store with Beast Machines Supreme Cheetor on shelf.

    Most Walmarts around here have marked DOTM deluxes down to $7.27.
