    Sadly I can't afford to buy leader class figures among all the other stuff I buy to care about new leader class figures coming out.

    Its good some places are getting them in. I've still yet to see a TR leader anything anywhere in my area and I thought for sure this time of year they would finally start showing up. I finally broke down and just ordered online TR leaders Powermaster Optimus, Soundwave and CW leader Ultra Magnus last week and got them in the mail Tuesday.

    You'd think Christmas would be the best time to put Leaders out, but I haven't even seen a store with shelf space dedicated to Leaders (besides the ones still trying to sell Skywarp and Starscream)

    Its nuts. And it isnt even hasbro's doing since they shipped all their leaders to retailers long ago. I dont knwo what is holding back all these retailers from putting out leaders? Is it because they dont seel as well and take up more shelf space?

    With my local wal-mart when both leader megatrons came out both went really quickly at first, they restocked quite a few times. After the last restock over a year ago they went a lot overboard literally a couple dozen were put out on the shelf at once, a few rows on the top of the shelves and a few rows on the bottom of the shelves. To this day 8 remain on the shelf without a restock or any other waves that came after and apparently they refuse to put them on clearance

    Many stores still have leftover CW leader seekers hanging around.
    My TRU is still not eligible to get TR leader figures, but we've sold about a dozen of Fort Max and have more in stock.

    I've had Soundwave for a couple of months. I've seen Target stores with shelf warming Skywarps everywhere, but my local TRU is moving through everything quite steadily. That being said, these days I only stop by the shops on occasion and prefer to preorder and buy online. I've got my hands all over TR wave 3 other than Sixshot and didn't have to worry about retail problems like shelf warmers, sightings, people, driving everywhere, the holidays, people, humans in general...

    Besides 1 lone Blaster a month ago, I havent seen any TR leaders.

    In addition to CW Skywarp, I still see some CW Armada Megatrons cluttering the aisles.

    I'm scared to think of how long it will take for us to see Sixshot, Sky(Black) Shadow, and Overlord....
