Are any of you still hesitant about picking up some Titans Return figures or hoping for clearance sales? Or just for them to return to Hasbro Toy Shop or another online store? Well you might want to get them now before it is too later because every Titans Return product, from all size classes, is currently sold out at the main distributor level, that being Hasbro. That means that while your retail store may still have many (and can still get some more from the chain's warehouses), Walmart, Toysrus and every other store selling these toys can no longer order more from Hasbro and hope to get more stock in before the next wave. Every order placed for the Titans Return line becomes a backorder and will only be filled out when the new stock arrives (ie wave 3).

This is gathered by messages sent to me by Hasbro proper since I needed replacements for both a deluxe and a leader figure. Below are the parts from two different messages ragarding this:

Regrettably, our Powermaster figure is currently unavailable and a product of equal value will be ordered from our warehouse.

This product (Titans Return Leader) is currently on back order and will ship to you as soon as inventory is replenished.


A replacement figure or a different figure of equal value will be sent but this line is on back order right now.


Since we know Wave 2 is out, that means the back order is for wave 3, which is not out or available yet. This is further proven by Power Master Prime being the Leader figure packages with Soundwave who, as you read, is unavailable from the manufacturer.
This would explain why several Amazon listings are marked as "discontinued from the manufacturer"

This is no cause for alarm but good news that the toyline is selling very well and probably better than anticipated. However, this does indicate that these first two waves will likely never be on clearance, nor show up at market six store, and will not be around for long. Amazon proper is already sold out of several of these toys. This seems to happen every time with new lines, but now we have some extra proof to back it up, so if you are tempted by any of these toys, get them before it is too late.

I short, this just means that Hasbro has no more figures on their end to deliver to stores (as they usually hope is the case). That means that stores like TRU bought a bunch of stock that they have yet to put on shelves. I am personally waiting till they do. All the info I have is what was posted in the article.

HTS, BBTS, TFSource, Amazon and the myriad of online retailers will probably not be able to restock though since they get their stock directly from Hasbro, who have no more to give.

Of course, this applies for Canada and the US, it is not certain if it is on backorder for other central Hasbro warehouses.

Does the article apply globally? Like, is selling out so extremely quickly in the US and Canada affecting availability in the UK too?

It should be an extremely obvious answer but I'm starting to get worried. Glad I picked up Chromedome; now I just have to prioritise Skullsmasher, Wolfwire and Rewind.

Would I be correct in assuming that although my local TRU only has wave 1 products on shelves, there are most likely some wave 2 products waiting in whatever storehouse they retrieve products from?

Well that's just Prime. Might need to order what I can of these before after market kicks in. A few of them are on my ideas list.

Well geez, good thing I have everything I want already. Hope they can get more out soon for people that still want stuff. Has this even happened before?

I dont know, but as is the case for the initial waves of all lines, I would not procrastinate.

I would venture a guess that it happened for the initial waves of combiner wars as well, but this time we actually have word from Hasbro. Whatever did not last long on HTS would probably fall into the same scenario.

Yes, or at least I sure hope so. Because I never saw wave 2 in stores, so I assume that it simply hasnt gotten to my stores yet. Hasbro would always be the first place for a toy to get sold out at and I am certain they made a lot of wave 2 for the holiday season, the busiest time. I just think that retailers havent sent all their stock across their stores yet. I am not worried, but I simply wont hesitate when I finally see them.

But doesn't back order imply there will be more? Or is what's been out is it? We've yet to see TR deluxe wave 2 at mass retail.

There will be more of the line, but not of these specific toys. This only applies to stores that directly order more from Hasbro. TRU and Walmart and co probably have the product and haven't put it out yet. But for stores that aren't chains, like bbts, what you see is what you get. However wave 2 should be out now, with this being the last quarter of 2016.

Well, this is comforting! :BANG_HEAD:
...do we know if they'll make more eventually? Preferably before Christmas?

This is scary. So this is it for wave 1-2? After the existing stock is gone, it's all done? If this is the case, I think it's going to cause quite the scalping epidemic. Between that and genuine collectors and consumers getting what they can, these are going to become very uncommon very quickly. A lot faster than people expect, I reckon.

At the very least we could expect some previous Voyagers and Leaders in future wave cases, right? Much like how PM OP was also part of Leader Wave 2.

Same thing happened with CW, that's why dragstrip is so expensive now but you can still find combaticons at tjnaxx.

But they've been available at Australian K-Marts for about two weeks now ...
Just not mine.
Everyone's been taking advantage of them being special too.
Just not me.

I think that was meant to say TK Maxx!(although i've never seen any in there, whenever i was in last) + the combaticons can also be found at Hamleys toy store(UK) as well ;)

Isn't this what is supposed to happen every time? This sounds like great news, as Wave 2 will be everywhere for Xmas.

Funny thing my wife and I noticed while in Germany: the US TJ Maxx is the same as the UK/EU's TK Maxx ;)

STOP thinking this is freaking true! This is HasbroToyShop, not Hasbro distribution. HasbroToyShop is NOT owned by Hasbro, it is licensed. Freaking google it.

Dang are you for real? I have been holding off on the Wave 2 deluxes, as I'm waiting for a deal. Plus I have yet to see anything in physical stores except a single Mindwipe at Walgreens for $20 each. The only places they're available online are stores like BBTS for $70 for all 4. I actually saw Amazon (not 3P seller) with a few of the Wave 2 deluxes, but it was oddly priced at $20. TRU and HTS don't even have it yet. Should I bite the bullet and get the wave from BBTS or hold out hope for a better deal?
