The End of the Supreme Price point?

The shocking thing, however, is that Sentinel rings up as "NCF TRNSFMRS".
"What," you may ask, "does 'NCF' stand for?"
Well, in Target-lingo, it stands for "Not Carried Forward", according to my finacee, on Target's pricing team.
NCF items are items which Target doesn't plan on restocking, ever.
Indeed, the shelf tag where the Omegas used to be is gone, with more Ultra price-points filling in.
If you remeber, there was talk at this past year's OTFCC that another Supreme level figure would debut in Energon. We've heard no word about it yet. Could dismal sales of Unicron, and the fact that a number of stores started selling Omega at below cost, just to move them, have caused Hasbro to can the largest, and most expensive price point? Is it really only the hard-core collectors who can afford to purchase those products? Do parents really spend that much on one toy for their children?
This has all been speculation on my part, but I think it's something we need to be aware of. Do you want to see the Supreme price point present? Or do you think it's a waste of money and retail space?
Sound off in the Energon pub, in this thread.
