Everywhere down here in the coastal Georgia area has TLK (which I don't collect,) RID (which I don't collect,) and Headmasters (which I don't collect.) I guess I should be grateful that Hasbro has saved me a lot of money this year by not putting out anything I want, and not shipping any PotP's anywhere near here until after Christmas, as I am forbidden to buy myself anything until after the holidays.

Still, with 2 or 3 Transformers lines going at all times, it baffles me that the section dedicated to professional wrestlers is twice the size of the Transformers sections. :-?

I’m wondering if we are ever going to see a TLK Hot Rod at retail?

I saw several on the shelves... in Canada :-P

Anyways, my TRU was stocked to the brim. They had everything and the TF section was even overflowing into the Voltron and Pokemon section.

Thats RID, TLK, TR AND POTP (plus TRU exclusives like MPM line and Seige on Cybertron) all there at the same time.

Ha, you're a brave man to go to TRU at this time of year. My last trip was a few weeks ago and it was a disaster. All the pegged items where just in a pile on the shelf below it was nuts.

Beachcomber, Slash, and Windcharger have appeared in the grab bins at Walmart down here. I didn't know how to behave.

Checked out the local Walmart today, looks like they might be preparing for the next reset as I noticed a lot of empty sections in the action figure aisle. Titans Return is just six or so figures that remain of Deluxe revision wave 4 (this store has never gotten regular wave 4, 5 or 6) and some Seasprays and Cosmoses. PotP is the same four Windchargers and two Shrapnels that have been there since the weekend before Christmas which I found a little worrisome. Unexpectedly they restocked a bunch of stuff from TLK. The pegs were packed with Deluxe waves 2 and 3 and a bunch of Voyager Nitro and Scorn figs. Everything else was cleaned out, this is really all there was. Looks like the simple TLK stuff was clearanced out.

I was going to take a picture, but before I could two teenage girls (13 or 14 I would guess) came into the aisle and complained about the Transformers section not being stocked yet. One of them mentioned Scraplets so they were definitely there as fans rather than looking for a gift for a little brother or something so that was great. I was in a hurry so I didn't hang around to wait for them to leave to take a pic. Just thought it was neat, I rarely actually see people in the store buying Transformers, let alone girls.
