What the Eff? Not that I'm complaining, but I need a minute to heal my wallet from all the wounds inflicted by HFTD, Generations, and RTS stuff before the movie stuff starts rolling out. This will not make my wife happy at all...lol

And... the jealousy sets in. Nice find. I would have bought them all, I'm thinking this is a fluke, but hopefully I'm wrong.

As much as I am looking forward to Cyberverse, I really, REALLY want to see the stuff we were supposed to get last fall.

Exactly. That, and we'll be seeing loads of "I CAN'T FIND THEM!" posts.

As would I, but unfortunately I don't get money in the bank until tomorrow. Guarantee you I will be back at Walmart tomorrow though.

Geez...they're really jumping the May 16th release date now. All these new figures are flying under our radars. This is good news, though. I was hoping we wouldn't get just one preview. The Star Wars movie figures always got like four or five preview toys.

However, I have a hard time convincing myself this is true. I hope this isn't a prank..."TRANS FIGURE $4.97" could very well be an older legends figure.

But if this does prove to be a universal early release, I hope we get an early taste of some other classes too. (Please release some commanders and deluxes!)

Guarantee you it isn't a prank. I tried taking a picture in the store of them on the racks, but my phone is just the free one that comes with the plan and couldn't figure out how to get the picture off the phone and onto my computer. Gladly carry a digital camera into the store tomorrow and take a picture on the racks though if you want me to. Going back to get the rest tomorrow.

Hopefully it is a wide release and not just a fluke at my Walmart as my Walmart hasn't gotten anything new in over a month. They were on the same pegs with the HFTD Legends figures though. They didn't get their own pegs.

the only thing that i like about the cyberverse figures is the packaging.. otherwise.. unless it's a small sized character in the movie.. i have no interest in them.

and hell.. my area has yet to see RTS wave 2 and have only seen kup and scourge once.

Oh...I didn't realize a fellow member found these! When I saw the article I thought it was from an external source. I'm hoping it isn't a fluke, either. I really want Topspin and Bumblebee. And I would assume they wouldn't get their own display since most places are having trouble ridding themselves of the old overstocked HFTD and Generations stuff to put RtS out. I do hope we get a few more DOTM figures that find their way into our hands early. They might as well start sneaking some in to get some early promotion. I mean, they had a Nickelodeon ad and the TF website already has DOTM stuff on it. The kids probably think all the DOTM stuff is out already.

Dude, you at least SAW Kup and Scourge. I did not, and have not since, until mine came in from overseas! I think I'm gonna try to talk my wife into running out to Wal-Mart tonight! :D

Oh boy, here we go. This about as entertaining as teasing a kitten with a laser pointer. Actually more so considering humans are supposed to be the more evolved species.
One store in one town makes one mistake, a mistake that can actually get stores fined, have their product yanked and cause people to lose their jobs no less, and the fandom goes ape-sh**!

Have fun wasting your over priced gasoline hunting for something that ain't there folks. :P

Ah come on, the hunt is half the fun. My wife and I were bored, so just after midnight, we load up, grab some coffee and hit up 2 Walmarts. We had a blast and all I got was a pack of Strawberry Super Sour straws. :lol:

Oh fantastic! So their going to be stealing shelf space away from Generations and RTS early! As if it wasn't slagging bad enough that there are still leftover ROTF toys littering the shelves, now they've gotta make way for the next oversized all encompassing movie line! :BANG_HEAD:

I really hope no one goes out looking for Legends figures early on account of one or two stores screwing up the street date.

These are Legends toys...they're not going to sell out (maybe ever) and the only accessory they come with is disappointment.

HAHA, now thats funny! These legend class figures and Shockwave (maybe Sentinel) are the only figures I'm getting out of this line. I just cannot get any repeated characters. Plus, I ordered all the RTS and Gen. stuff. The only thing I'm waiting on to come in is Grapple, Windcharger, and Warpath.

Same thing here. I'm sticking with the Cyberverse stuff for the low price point and because I don't need any more larger versions of the same characters. My movie shelf is packed, but at least with the Cyberverse stuff I can fit a lot on a new shelf without giving up one of my larger shelves.

Your plans mirror my own. I do want the ark thingy. But that will be it. I'm almost embarrassed that I have 4 large shelves worth of Movie stuff already. What I have to focus on is buying the ones I ACTUALLY want, and not just slingin' 12 bucks worth of plastic at the register and justifying it with whatever comes to mind. Focus. This year will require focus.

Went back to my Walmart today and picked up a handful of the ones they had. Forgot that they also had the white and blue Barricade in this wave as well.

Quick note on the figures, Bumblebee is a brand new mold. I looked at the legends class versions of him here on Seibertron and while he shares some similarities and unless there is a legends version I've not seen, he is different. First off, he has flip down feet instead of just being molded into the back of the car. Also, where the ROTF's legend bumblebee's wheels were at his hands, these are on his shoulders. On the inside of the right panel that forms his arm is molded is hand cannon (even legends class BB can't have 2 hands anymore) while the other has a mounded hand. The chest it molded with he updated that his onscreen character has received, he also sports the spoiler in the back.

Barricade is a slight remould of the '07 legends figure where instead of having 2 juicers for hands, his right hand has been molded as an open claw. Other wise, aside from being white and blue, he is the same mold.

Skidz is just a repaint of the ROTF version.

There there is Topspin and Crankcase which are both new characters. Neither is really that bad.

I can't tell you if Sideswipe was a new mold, just a retool, or what as he was gone. Guess I should have picked him up last night instead of Topspin (or someone saw this and went toy hunting :P). But, now my Walmart has 4 BB's, a Skidz and I think a Barricade.

The DOTM Packaging is nice though. You can open the figure up and take him out of the shell while 100% preserving the package. Attached a picture to show it off. Hope the Deluxe figures share the same design. They also come with instruction inserts instead of the instructions just being on the back of the package. I've not bought many legends, so I don't know if they've done that before or not.

Says who?
You need to take a chill pill dude. RtS will come. Heck, new stuff just showed up in my area for the first time since November. We just aren't getting a huge line of stuff from RtS considering we still have shelfwarmers (as you mentioned) with a movie coming up on top of that. They won't sell if they keep shoveling out waves of toys every month, and May 16th will be full of RtS and Generations "crap" that no one wants anymore. Besides, this is probably a fluke. And they're legends for Primus' sake, they don't hog a lot of space. Neither do they sell out well. But I'm sure these'll be gone from that store and we won't get anything out of DOTM until May.
And how do legends steal shelf space from Generations, exactly?

While there's definitely some over-reaction going on, I Can't say that a little bit of worry isn't entirely unwarranted. Local stores have barely carried Generations or Reveal the Shield (though I've been lucky and found most of the figures by now), so it's been a pretty bad hunt, particularly for the more recent ways.

Now, of course, the big stores will want to make room for all the movie toys and push aside non-movie lines accordingly. If you haven't seen Kup, Scourge, Lugnut, or Grapple yet, there's a pretty good chance that you're not going to at this rate - at least not in your local stores.

Gotta agree with you on that. Grapple, Windcharger and Warpath are certainly worth ordering online (if they're not sold out yet). Once this avalanche is unleashed, it will be ALL DOTM for awhile. Cyberverse, playsets (like the Ark) and HA basics are going to get shelf space along with the standard deluxes, voyagers, leaders, stealth force and whatever else comes up. A classics line will reemerge at some point, but these RTS/GEN lines are on their way out for now.

I've never even seen wave 2 of the voyagers not to mention the later waves of generations figs and RTS figs, I think being a little ticked off at the big chain retailers is warranted considering that ordering them online is always a bit more exspensive. The pending onslaught of movie toys is just going to make getting he gen and rts figs harder. While it's cool that the movie line does have some neat stuff to offer, I feel like they should have gotten the RTS/Gen lines out in full before pushing them off for more movie toys.

Nahh...we'll just get them in April then all the people that want DOTM stuff on May 16th will be greeted by tags that say: Clearance on all Transformers Reveal the Shield and Generations!
Hey, I had to wait weeks for the ROTF NEST shelfwarmers to clear out before the HFTD/Generations/PCC line was released.

More DOTM Cyberverse figures are infiltrating Wal-Mart toy aisles in Florida! Back in March our own Lord Onixprime stumbled across Topspin, Skidz, Bumblebee, Crankcase and Sideswipe at his local Wal-Mart in Florida. Yesterday TFW2005 member Toyzaremine discovered a couple Cyberverse playests, Bumblebee With Mobile Battle Bunker and Starscream Orbital Assault Carrier, also at a Wal-Mart in Florida for $14.95 each. You Seibertronians in Florida might want to take a trip down the toy aisle next time you're in your local Wal-Mart.
