lol. I'd love more of their stuff but BBTS doesn't put them on sale much even though they had the new Evangelion EVAs dirt cheap form the newer movies. I just passed on a ROTF bludgeon. I love everything but that god aweful head sculpt so i figured that 20.00 can go to an import G1 reissue.

In my area yes it was.

When ROTF came out the stores here stocked upped buy buying hundreds of figures per store.

They sold so well that all the stores now just have bigger than normal regural spot in the toy isle.

They sold so freaking much it wasn't even funny.

Even now a days the ROTF section is depleted and contally restocked.

I would also like to point out that all that product was moved without having one sale or being put on clerance.

So where I live Hasbro has made a mint on ROTF toys.
Worth killing for
Worth dying for
Worth going to hell for

Odd around here the ROTF figures haven't moved much at all. THe only ones you see being bought are those with G1 tie-ins like soundwave, ravage and such. My dad works at walmart and says they've got boxes of the figures int he back that they can't get rid of. Maybe it's just my area.

They don't move well around here either...
Shelves are always overflowing, They have to open up endcaps to make room and still i see TONS of cases sitting on palettes when they do inventory check.

Well with this massive price jump that Hasbro is planning on TF figures alot of us are going to either stop collecting, buy the imports so Takara gets the cash and hasbro doesn't or do ebay. I'm already tempted to buy the import TFA stuff because i'm tired of stores in the US getting "Exclusives".

There is going to be a price jump on Transformers? :x
Hasbro does not do e-bay but a lot of people with Hasbro toys do.

I understand these are directed more towards the younger crowd, But when are they going to realize collectors are who really buy these now. :x

Repaints, Remakes, Crappy Artic, Crappy Sculpts, Crappy Everything.
The only thing they seem to be good at is Packaging Flare.

Sorry about the rant, But i just cant get over the Toy Biz Era~LoL.


Are you high?! These figures are great! Hell even the made up armors (Hypervelocity especially) look beyond cool!
