Motto: "Don't do drugs, beer's cheaper anyway!"
Zobover of alt.toys.transformers the original Transformers community has posted an excerpt from the Walmart 2009 Toys Spring Modular Guide. This reveals that the release date for the Transformers Revenge of The Fallen toy line in the US will be May 29th!
Read it by scrolling down or by clicking here.

Here's an excerpt from the Walmart 2009 Toys Spring Modular Guide:

*Action Figures is a "win" category for the toy department. Sales for
Spring and Summer 2009 will be driven pirmarily off the new Hollywood
movies coming to the big screen. Listed below are theatrical release
dates which will affect the action figure category and the toy
department:

○ May 1 - Wolverine (new Marvel movie)
○ May 8 - Star Trek
○ May 22nd - Terminator 4
○ June 26th - Transformers 2
○ August 7th - GI Joe

*We will do two mod updates during the season to introduce a couple of
the above properties. On March 9, we will do an update to incorporate
of the [sic] new Wolverine toys from Hasbro. Then on May 29th, we
will do a second update to bring in all of the new Transformers 2 toys
to support the movie release.

*Transformers will be far and away the largest action figure license
for the year. On May 29th, when we do the mod update, we will
dedicate major space on our action figure modular to support this
movie event.

Good, we still will have almost half a year before the stores are all drowning in more movie shelfwarmers.

I know where all my birthday money is going toward and what all my gifts will be now =)

Yay for Spring birthdays!

I'm gonna try to get all Deluxes and Voyagers first that I think will be harder to find later on. Not gonna worry too much about Leaders right away (unless theres a Starscream or Soundwave) because I know their ALWAYS in stores.

Smack in the middle of BotCon. Ha. They did this with Animated last year, but only in Cincinnati. I think I'll just concentrate my spending on BotCon that weekend and pick up the RoTF figures after my wallet has recovered. There are gonna be cooler things to buy in the Dealer Room.

Thanks but I'll pass. Ever since the first movie line Transformer toys have been crap. The movie ones were just plain ugly, Animated figures are extremely fragile, and classics figures are overly articulated and fall apart too easily.

That'll give me some time to save up at least, but I MIGHT have to drop a little on T4 though, big Terminator fan.

Someone in Hasbro loves me. My birthday is May 30th.

If everything goes swimmingly I'll be going to Botcon at the same time. This should be pretty sweet.
