Looks pretty generic to me. I hate how they're pushing basically 3-4 exclusives. I mean, those are pegs of repeats. That's NOT exciting. Whatever happened to shuffling through the pegs for a hard-to-find gem?!? Lame-o.
I can glance at the display and see there's nothing worthwhile there, and that's just sad.

I have no idea what possesses you to make such a bold statement. If anything, you should say the MOVIES are cementing the franchise, not the Predacon Rising crap - I've hardly seen anyone care or notice, in-store.
Well, I guess I should advise you that a large marketing ad or display is hardly "proof" that something is doing well. Look at the original Xbox, for example - that thing hemorrhaged money like you would not believe, were you to judge it by adverts and displays only.

I've seen them pile up over where I live. Like I said, no one really seems to care. I returned my set after I opened my individual Abominus figs (and noticed how horribly made they are), and I expected the return to fly off the shelves, but... still there. I could probably marker it and keep tabs, but meh.
This stuff is gonna clearance like mad one day. I'm hoping to nab a giant Predaking at half price or less!
