Here you go, Burn, your idea realized.

Do what the title says. Are your shelves well stocked or barren? Post the pics and let us know.

Never EVER give a member of the News Crew credit publicly. They already take too much credit for doing nothing.

Whoops. I totally recalled that wrong. We'll just chalk that up to old age. Edited for correct credit. My bad.

I don't have any pictures to share, but pretty much all the stores I regularly go to have been barren for a while now. One Target near me just now got a restock with CW Combaticons and the Leader Skywarp. There is generally an assortment of the RID figures but I don't collect those, so I can't say much about those; however, I doubt they are selling that well, at like $16 for some thin plastic.

My closest Target has a terrible selection. Two full pegs of Wave 4 bots, 1 Scattershot, and a bunch of CW legends Skywarps and Rodimuses with a few Grooves, Blackjacks, and Wreck Gars. Two CW leaders (Skywarp and Megatron I think) and a lone Roadbuster. Last time I was at my Walmart it still(which was not long ago) had a CW Breakdown! :shock:

Bigger than the section at my K-Mart was at any point between AOE and them closing down the store (which they started doing a few months ago).


TRU's the only place I've seen Combaticon limbs. I did see Onslaught at Target this week, but the only limbs were the first Autobot wave (same as have been hanging on those pegs since before Christmas). And the section was about the size of that K-mart picture.

Check the selection AND price!

And its Canadien dollars, so scratch an extra 25% off to see the US value.

I don't like them at full price.



I think repaints should be cheaper.

:lol: We do think alike since I agree. In my head I associate a value to everything and yes I do give less to repaints. And these prices definitely answered what that treshold price would be. Also, the only version of the classics Mirage mold I owned was Dragstrip. So now owning Mirage I have both formula 1 vehicle tfs in different molds, albeit eachother's redeco :)

At that price, I dont care if Skylynx feels cheap because I paid what I feel is his rightful value.

Man, with selections like that, you'd think Hasbro was based in Canada :BANG_HEAD:

That takes me back to the golden days of tfs, back in Cybertron, where the figures were plentiful (albeit of a higher quality) and the prices weren't outrageous, now I'm sad inside :(
