I went to take the last of my pictures today, and I also found that wave 4 and the playsets were starting to hit my area. Oh, AND Cyberverse Commander waves 2-3, which had previously been unseen. Still TONS of the Bee, and still Vehicons and Airachnid have been snatched before my arrival, but it's progress! Pictures forthcoming.

I went to my local TrU today. Before I took the picture, I rearranged the pegs so that every Bumblebee pegs was JUST holding Bumblebee. I stacked the Bees 3 to 4 thick for the FE, and 4 to 5 thick for the Prime and DotM.

EVERYTHING AT THE REGULAR CAN17$+15%taxes.

The only good thing out of this is they restocked 4 FE Cliffjumpers and 3 FE Starscreams. I bought a Cliffy for my MoC collection. I bought only one because no sale and I'm broke as hell.

So far, NO wave 2, 3, or 4 for Prime. NO Prime Arcee, Vehicon, Ratchet, Knock-Out, Hot Rod, or Airachnid. NO Voyager Prime Bulkhead or Starscream. Luckily, I was able to obtain both voyagers in a trade by giving a Arms Micron Terrorcon Cliffjumper.

One more proof that THE HIVE is chocking out the new arrivals.

The good news is you have about 3 times as much space devoted to Transformers as any of my local stores. The bad news is....well, I think the bad part speaks for itself. If that doesn't show that the bee is not as popular as hasbro/retailers think he is, then nothing can.

Hey now, I grabbed it because he requested it, fully knowing exactly how bad Airachnid is. xD That one's on him. :P Turns out Airachnid can balance just enough to do the my-hands-are-behind-my-back-and-I'm-obviously-scheming pose at least (it hides the hands and forearms). I still won't touch the mold with a ten-foot pole though, yikes.

Only 13 Bees, with an around half & half ratio between DotM and RiD.

Pfft! You are small time.

Quoting myself just to point out a little something.

For what I can count based on the photo and the info:

27 Prime RiD Bees
+
46 mother fucking FE Bees
+
13 DotM Bees.

TOTAL: 86 Bees. A real swarm.

VS

3 Prime Rid Cliffy
+
3 FE Cliffy
+
3 FE Screamers
+
24 various DotM deluxes.

TOTAL: 30 Non Bee deluxe transformers, ALL of them (maybe minus the 3 RiD Cliffy) Are old stuff.

RATIO: Almost 3 Bees for one other TF.

oh Kanrabat, I wasn't aware there was a prize for most Bees. And actually, if all 14 of those deluxes in Evil's pic are Bee, he wins on the ratio anyway.

Which is why I actually opened this thread today - to make a suggestion:

Every one of you that has gone to the effort of taking a photo and posting it here: what have you achieved? You've shared your frustration and nothing else. Please make a little more effort and send your photos to Hasbro customer care department stating where you took the picture and exactly what the problem is (just to drive home the point). If everyone does this it will at least make them think. Yes, I know, petitions don't work but this is different - this is not a petition to make a new figure but to cut down on distribution of an existing one.

Make it so.

This is awesome. I'm so glad to be part of the anti-Bumblefungus revolution. I wonder how long it will take Hasbro to react to being flooded with images of shelves of NOTHING but Bumblebee. Xp

I'm almost scared to venture to Target after the pics I took at my local Toys R' Us...

An email from him might have some clout, however, being inundated with emails from around the country would also have impact. DO IT ANYWAY.

Damn, that's a lot of Bee's, Kanrabat. I'm not sure if the situation in my neck of the woods is better or worse, but the local TRU doesn't stock nearly as many Bee's...then again, they hardly stock any TF's, period.

Things in my area look like they are starting to turn around. Targets and Walmarts are staring to get a better mix of figures left on the pegs. I see Ratchet, Arcee, Soundwave, Hot Shot and Knock out figures on the pegs. One of the local Targets about a month ago had 16 Bumblebee figures and 1 Cliffjumper on the pegs for a couple of weeks, but now they are down to about 6 Bees, and have been restocking series 3 on a regular basis. 1 of the 2 Toys R us stores in town is still bad though. 10 out of 12 of the Prime figures on the shelf are Bumblebee.
