    Tramsformers was named the #1 most wanted toy for boys this past holiday season. I don't even ever remember Star Wars being in the top ten any year. Similar polls have had things like Tickle me Elmo as #1 in past years. There is no Bias, they just can't make 'em quick enough.

    1) This is a MESSAGE BOARD on the INTERNET.

    2) This is NOT a job interview or English 101 for that matter.

    3) Spelling and grammar mistakes are bound to happen with everyone at some point.

    4) Shit happens, get over it and enjoy this place for what it's worth.

    (If you can at least understand what the OP is trying to say, that's all you need to know in order to answer a simple question or offer help. If he wanted to have his grammar pointed out to him, he'd be in English class instead of TFW).

    My Woolies only has 30 Recon Barricades and a bunch of legends figures. I think they sell all the good stuff fast and then something shelfwarms for aaaaaaaaaaages. Same with the Alts a coupla years ago.

    30 Recon barricades? I never even saw those. Same as dropkick and fab brawl, and a few others.

    Plenty of stupid slammer crap all over though.

    I get to see if my local big w and target have re-shelved tomorrow though. :) 

    At least the lego aisles never disappoint. They always keep plenty of that everywhere.

    As to the title/question of this thread, the answer is; no. This is the standard Christmas draught

    My area is just beginning to get its post-Christmas bounce back. I'm starting to see a little of everything returning to the shelves.

    If we have such a hard time finding Transformers at our local stores, where else can we find them?

    Like, eBay or some other place online, for instance.

    (Just in case something we want so bad, like Slumberbee is sold out FOREVER!:/)
