We can see Leader Dragonstorm from Transformers: The Last Knight in the images and it is the first time we were told of his appearance in the US.

It says something that the movie is already out of theaters, but they still don't have all the figures on shelf. Not having the movie on the big screen may truncate casual buyers from wanting to pick up any related figures...

Thank Primus. Maybe I’ll finally have a chance at getting something new for once.

I think there is also the idea of having the figures available for when the film hits Home Video so that cross marketting can happen on that level. And I am seeing Walmarts having new spotlights on these toys with the home release on the way. Ninja Turtles and Dispicable Me also worked that way with the toys.

Anyways, lets have a laugh:

Good news. Grimlock stopped shelfwarming (near me at least). Bad news. Hound started shelfwarming, and stores knew megatron would sell.......

Went to check out a Target at Rosemont, IL when my dad and I went to check out Megadeth at the Allstate Arena. The omly new things I found were Allspark Tech figures, the 1 step 6 pack, and the sound masks. Nothing from Wave 2, just Berserkers and Dinobot repaints (do I need to mention them?), and two Leader Primes and Megs (but no Voyagers of them). Very disappointing. Thankfully, I do have plans for a Dreadbot custom (and to get a second spike club since my copy was missing one), so Beserk will be useful again for now.

Also William-James88 noce pic, but let's not forget about Slash and Berserker joing Grimlock. Woody's as frustrated as I am with distribution lol!

Prolly, but if I didn't order them I'd never find them. That's how it works, yo! ;)^

Yeah if i am correct, this is my local toysrus.
They have had that same stuff for weeks. Only thing new is that dragonstorm.
If it is my local toysrus. They still have two of those planet cybertron toys( repaint of galaxy force primus).
This toysrus has only got in one shipment of mp-10's and only 2 mpm-3 bumblebees.

No mpm-4 optimus prime has been seen.

(Sidenote) this same toysrus also gets in a healthy stock of nintendo switches from time to time.

If they stopped shelfwarming, then they were never really shelf warming in the first place. Shelfwarming is when a toy lingers when the toyline its part of is long gone, thats what makes them so fabled, like Beast Wars Injector. Or AOE Snarl, or the YOTG toys, who I could still find a year ago.

As for Hound, I wouldnt call that shelfwarming either since its still rather recent, only a few months, right? And also, many of those are not the same hounds from when they were first stocked (since those sold well across the board, lots of fans wanted him). And plus he's a popular toy. All he needs is a little sale and I am sure they will sell well, especially through the holiday season. Plus many are still looking for decently priced Hounds, I hope they find them, hes a good toy :)

Thats still way more than what some toysrus got (which was nothing). Looks like a nice toyrsus, similar to the ones in Canada.

One toy that is pretty sure to shelf warm though it Grimlock. Especially because many who already own the AoE version won't bother with the TLK repaint. Especially because the AoE Grimlock is not into a "fruity" color.

The whole greater Chicago area is way overstuffed with wave 1. I live in the south burbs and work in the NW burbs. If you are looking for voyagers, the only place out of TRU/Target/Walmart with anything other than Grimlock is the Walmart in Gurnee. They had a mix of waves 2 and 3 there (Hound, Scorn and Nitro).

I live in Missouri and all I have had since April was wave 1. Until a like a month or two ago we got wave 2 voyagers and that's it. :BANG_HEAD: :-(

In my local area down under, I've seen Wave 1 Deluxes, Waves 1-3 Voyagers (somehow) and no Leaders - though I have seen Leader Megs and OP in a Sydney TRU a few hours' drive away. No clue as to the other types of TLK toys since I haven't been keeping track, though I know I've seen the Hound and Dragonstorm Legions around a few times.

Wave 3 Voyagers were a total chance find, just one of each on the bottom shelf of a Target - not even a Voyager price tag in that store, which naturally led to me forgetting the different Target price and frankly overpaying - $60AU ($48US) each?! (Not that I really regret it though; dunno if I'd put either of them above Megatron or Hound, that's a post for another day, but damn are they some nice toys.) Wave 2 Voyagers, though? They're everywhere now, Hound outnumbers Grimlock probably 3:2 by this point, but now that I have all the Voyagers I want - i.e. all of them bar Grimmy - I'm not too bothered. I get the feeling Hound and Megs will sell better to kids around the holiday season, and that's what keeps the brand going so it's fine by me :D.

Now if only I could have some newer Deluxes...
