Funny that the "post Christmas lull" started in October.

I just don't understand why TRU has had Beast Hunters plus more new FoC stuff while Walmart sits bare, and other toylines restock around the Transformers. My best guess is that Walmart corporate underordered Beast Hunters wave 1 because Prime wave 1 sat on the shelves for so long.

Kid Dynamite, Deefuzz, and TrickyDisco agree: I win at the internet.

Yeah, possibly...but with all the 'resets' they've completed in their toy sections, the managers have to have noticed the big empty spots...and call attention to it somehow. I've always heard that WM mgmt goes ballistic over blank shelves....or used to.

Oh well...they'll show up after we've all purchased everything from TRU or Target.

Walmart has already publicly confirmed that it will only stock GI Joe Retaliation toys in select stores. That's a VERY bad sign for a toy line supporting a major film release. With nothing mass-media wise on the horizon for TF in the near future, I can't imagine TF's prospects are much better.

Target at Turkey Creek had all of the wave 1 Beast Hunter Deluxes, and the two new BH Cyberverse vehicle playsets. The lull is starting to fade, my friends!

Ray Mears Target had wave 1 Beast Hunter Deluxes too tonight, I was surprised to see them outside a TRU. No Cyberverse vehicles there though.

I just hope they start getting in the FOC stuff as well.

Ray Mears...this means Knoxville, right?? Just checking.

Actually, I found 1 wave of BH--Bee, WJ & SW... and the Sideswipe wave of FOC at WM...ONE TIME, ONE TIME ONLY...this had to be right around Xmas....so it's been over a month since they've had a shipment...or at least stocked any more TF's. So yeah, they've been sighted outside of TRU...but it's been a rare thing, here in Clarksville anyway.
