Brag or cry about your retail Transformers section

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

You know whats crazy? Canada is still on the legion ratchet wave. So no groundpounder, no bisk and defintely none of the new 2017 stuff. They still stock them but its all older waves.


Sounds like you're a Wave behind there. Although, did you see Legions in Weaponizer packaging?

No i didn't.


Yikes, and I don't remember exactly who are left here and how many. I have spotted stray Groundbusters, Windblades and some re-releases.

Sorry for the double post :)

Just got back from Toys 'R Us, and they were decently stocked... except for Generations Deluxes. :roll: Wave 1 Legends, no Titan Masters, Wave 2 Voyagers, Wave 1 Leaders and Fortress Maximus. RiD is up to date with the first Combiner Force wave, but some older figures still linger.

Speaking of RiD, if you're looking for Mini-Cons Wave 3 and beyond, I spotted one (Back/Forth) at my local Ross, plus some Rescue Bots 2 packs. (and again, I didn't bring my camera :BANG_HEAD: )

After what seemed to be a great start TR has fizzled to bad as CW or worse. Nothing new since wave 2. :BANG_HEAD:

I think I've seen some more recent RID, but I don't pay enough attention to that line to be sure.

I asked The Entertainers about new Transformers get this is the reply :

"
@Red_Rescue
Hi, I've checked with our buying team and we don't have any on order at the moment. However, the release date is June so do keep checking back on the website. Kind regards, Sally"


Oh faceplamaroony if they really have no plan to get any new Transformers until JUNE !!!

I hope that was a miss-communication.

I actually was wondering why they never got any Legends on the Website, why the put the newer minicons on the site and then pulled them put them in the store and then they went and vanished completely (but they are out in Germany a fair bit) no sign of a restock - they are on clearance even.

Then there is the curious situation with Argos having zip all in the catalogue.

Yet some stores have some stock... it's pretty strange - I wonder if they didn't order the stuff on purpose ? so as to clear space for Movie toys ?

Damn that is frustrating though when it comes to ACTUALLY WANTING Titans Return toys and not getting them.

I'm tempted to send Hasbro inc a angry tweet simply saying :
"Sort your sh*t out !!" but that wouldn't be very productive and would likely get me blocked.

I swear the retailers are just as Bad as Hasbro and when they do stupid things they just blame each other or say nothing and leave the consumer scratching their heads at empty shelves.

Dumb queston RAR, but is Amazon UK a decent avenue for your collecting endeavors. Amazon.ca sucks for me, but I hear wonders of Amazon.com for the yanks and Amazon Japan for Takara products.

To quote Emgo316 : "There is eBay and Amazon but do be wary of their prices."

Not often no. eBay is fine for somethings but not often for normal stuff as the places that sell on there are the same ones I complain about not having any stock - it's just a matter of being lucky and capturing the odd private auction which is what I end up doing quite a lot of the time lately.

I can't import much due to the ludicrously ungenerous £15.00 customs import merchandise limit. If it had gone up with inflation it would be like £100 by now not £15.00 (It was £18.00 they put it down to try to kill the channel Islands DVD market) naturally these days £15.00 is even less than it once was in buying power - I used to at least be able to buy from HLJ a single figure - I can't even do that now. without a hideous charge.

But Amazon.co.jp is allowing more items to be purchased internationally so that might help as they add the tax but not the processing fee - the tax isn't the issue it's the royal mail ransom notes.

Also some of the smaller sole trader online retailers are mainly selling 3rd party now.

I do what I can and I appreciate what I CAN get all the more I guess.

Somebody came along and wiped out the Titans Return section at one of the local Walmarts. Tuesday morning the shelves were still pretty well stocked with Deluxe and Titan Master wave 3 stuff and a single Blaster, but now the only thing left is Hot Rod, Twinferno, and Fangry.

On the flip side the RID stuff was fairly well stocked though nothing new for Warriors.

This guy, though, made a surprise appearance already.

I know it's not the first sighting, but I don't usually find stuff over here on the east coast so soon after the initial sightings.

Wait. Didn't you have Sixshot? Anyway, the delays were indeed excruciating. Btw, did you get an Astrotrain yet in your TRU?

Never saw one in my neck of the woods.

Again with Blaster. Is he really that scarce in the mainland US? Death Reviews (I'm assuming he's also USA based) also mentioned how hard it is to find Soundwave.

Blaster is not uncommon my area, they're keeping all the Powermaster Primes company.

What one Walmart store does have is a bit of an infestation. Not of the Bumblebee kind, but another bug, 3 pegs full.

Between two Walmarts and a Target I've seen (estimated) a grand total of 7 Blasters, 5 Primes, 2 Soundwaves, and 0 Six Shots. The most leaders I've seen at one time is two Blasters and a Prime. I'm sure there's been more actually stocked that I just haven't seen, but typically the stores seem to get one case every month or so and it's gone in around a week. Never used to be an issue, but maybe they decided it wasn't worth sending a lot of stock our way when our population is only a little more than that of Rhode Island...

TRU was pathetic today. A few pegs of REWIND AND WHEELIE, one "powermaster" Prime, and 3 Blasters. Oh and a bunch of that RID [poop] that judging how it clogs up the pegs not even kids want. I mean who's buying "warrior" Grimlock in 2017?

Target was even worse, I don't even remember anything noteworthy. Even their RID stock seems pretty bad.

Only thing of note anywhere was Walmart where they had a few Soundwaves. I ultimately passed, wanting to save money for the Hot Rods and Kickbacks that are apparently never going to show up. Oh, and they had some Blurs and Chromedomes, and the usual RID peg cloggers.

EDIT:Gave up (thanks Hasbro) and ordered Hot Rod and Kickback online. Combined those two were almost the exact price Walmart was selling Soundwave for... Never be a fan of anything, you're just asking to be [pooped] on. :HEADHURTS:

Hot Rod showed up at my Walmart. Not much else though

And as you can see, the RID stuff is selling fine where I am, there are as many gen toys clogging the shelves.

You still have Alpha Trion, who at one time people couldnt find in their stores. Plus you have the two latest assortments of the combiner force gimick line. AND, while not a TF, you have all the Voltron toys which are US exclusive since they didnt want to print in multiple languages. That means they are made in a more limited amount (since they are only serving one country) and thus will be a hot commodity later on.

So you are still luckier than you think. hasbro said at the Toy Fair that you should only expect a restock of new toys at easter, anything before would be lucky.

My TRU restocked with Wave 2, and not the revision wave, the actual wave 2 with the animals.

AND, while not a TF, you have all the Voltron toys which are US exclusive since they didnt want to print in multiple languages. That means they are made in a more limited amount (since they are only serving one country) and thus will be a hot commodity later on.

So you are still luckier than you think. hasbro said at the Toy Fair that you should only expect a restock of new toys at easter, anything before would be lucky.

I suppose. There is also Astrotrain, which at least is better than seeing a bunch of Sentinels, and they had Repugnus' wave of Titan Masters a couple weeks ago (obviously those all went).


I dunno, this Target is utterly terrible at keeping Titans Return stocked. I guess Wave 1 shelfwarming isn't so much an issue this time around, but at the same time I fear I may have completely missed the boat on Waves 3-4 (the only ones I care about).
