I can't tell if "never waves" is a typo or a sarcastic remark. I'm guessing typo, but I got a good laugh regardless.

The answer is obvious. In case you hadn't noticed Hasbro are morons. Instead of maintaining old markets whilst opening up new markets they start neglecting the old ones. This, plus overstocking Bees ads up to one thing: HASBRO ARE MORONS.

All those with shops filled with Bees: buy them all and sell them to Romania. Head of Hasbro Romania told me they can't get enough and people constantly call them asking where they can get one.

I agree with 4chan /toy/ on this one:
We call it

THE HIVE


because it's full of bees.

TrU had a big 50% sale on deluxes Prime Transformers lately. for less than 10$, this was the only reason to bet a RiD Prime Bumblebee for me. No regrets at all. He's a great toy, far superior than the first edition. More fun transformation and a superior robot mode. Only the FE's car mode is superior. The sale is now over and now, mostly Bumblebee remain. Especially the First Edition ones. The only FE toys that remain is a big hive of bees. I dont know why...
Oh yeah also lots and lots of RiD Prime Bees. There's some RiD Cliffy there too.

Next time, I will bring my camera along so I can finaly post a picture. Trust me, that Bee Hive is epic.

BB aside, I'd prefer to call it the 'Prime Plague'. Every store I walk into has full pegs of all the Prime toys. BB has plenty of friends to keep him company.

honestly, blame the bay tf movies. bee was the center most character and the only one the audiance was meant to connect with.

example: my gf and her daughter.

both obsessed with the movie bee. however, they both dislike prime bee, which is a poor attempt at a recreation of bays character, down to the "cant talk" aspect, and the classic/ new cybertronian bee.

i do blame those movies. ever since them bumblebee has never been the same. and i noticed, why yellow? some of the most popular things kids like are yellow.
pikachu and bumblebee for example. IMO the last decent bumblebee was TFA bee, cartoon wise.

here I thought it was because of the fact that all those stores will never sell all those Bees and so they'll NEVER get any of the other waves in.

in response doubledealer93, are you suggesting to a full line of tf figures all painted yellow to boost sales?

imagine megatron and ironhide as all yellow. ratchet and soundwave bright and cheery.

although it did partially work for starscream. lol

biggest fear is if the market is flooded with non selling figures, retailers will cancel shipments.

texas has "remember the almo"

i say "remember mercedes alt mode soundwave"

the last wave of dotm which include que, leadfoot, skywarp, soundwave, vortex deluxe figures and the human alliance soundwave was cancelled by retailers because of lacking dotm figure sales.

i havent even seen the newest prime figures yet!

No this is Hasbro's fault for not realizing Bumblebee isn't as in demand as he was 5 years ago. The movies made him popular, but that doesn't explain why Hasbro isn't keeping up with what figures are actually being sold.

First edition Bulkhead just became a shelfwarmer. Not my pictures, but taken by ppl I know on their hunt. :lol:

Notice the proportion of the other PRID figures to bee, and the ammount of FE bulkheads.

Well, I just went to TRU and there were more FE than PRID... All the vehicons are getting snapped up, but arcee and cliff remains everywhere.
