    I saw two scourges and two kups at the Pearland Walmart today. First time I've seen this wave at a Walmart. Good news for people looking for Kup and Scourge but probably bad news for people looking for Warpath at retail.

    My guess is the various retail outlets are sitting on the new stuff... Waiting for the big Easter push.

    Actually as a part of my job, I do get to go into the back of the 3 Wal-Marts in my city. You'd be surprised by how much they DON'T have.

    Yeah, I don't think stores are holding product in the back. It is possible the distribution centers are where the good stuff is being held at.

    Although it could also be production/shipping delays and stores distribution centers don't even have the items yet.

    Or it could be that stores are not ordering any product and are just waiting for the movie stuff to hit. If that is the case, we might not see the last waves of RTS and Generations - unless the Spring movie resets include slots for those lines in their planogram.

    I really hope Hasbro has some good information about non-movie toys that will be revealed at Botcon. I am especially curious about the RTS Scout Rumble/Frenzy if those will be released this year (and hopefully in a case that has more Windchargers as well).

    If we don't see the RTS Legends, Scouts, and Voyagers by May, I doubt we will see them anytime soon.

    This is all speculation of course. Where's a Hasbro insider or distribution insider when you need one?

    <_<

    But umm.....that was news on this site. It was stated that Hasbro said Generations would continue throughout the year.....the year or the movie toys, I forget. But Generations would continue. This was at the last major convention, I think. But what hasbro says and what Hasbro does are often very different.
