That claim is false. As you noticed during the lockout, many toys (speaking of everything in the toy aisles) was being stocked and new shipments were coming in. The pace has not slowed since then. Several lines, including Transformers, were hard to find simply because they sold. For any line that is even just mediocre, one case of figures won't last too long.

Exactly what I told him. They fly off the shelves. Case in point, Wednesday, Walmart here, fully restocked with Super Primes, Blurrs, the works (no Jetfires ). Today almost all gone. Walmart makes an effort here, to a point. Target does not. They restock the toy aisles two times a year it seems. Poor management I think.

I found Jetfire @ Target in Brandon, Florida around 1 pm today. There were 3 when i got there and I left two for the next lucky TF hunters. So have at them guys and gals. By the way, the Causeway Wal-mart has wave 3 Supercons. Good luck.

I would've added this sooner, but I was having a problem with site connection earlier today.

Jetfire found at the Target in Delray Beach around 3:15pm on Saturday. There were two left after I picked one up.

Finding Blurr and Super-con OP shouldn't be a problem in South Florida at this point. I first spotted them about 3 weeks ago. They're now in every Wal-Mart I go to and were in the two Targets that I've been to in the last week.
I am not the soul of brevity.
