    I know how you feel. It's so difficult to find figures and they are so expensive, it's hard to muster up the enthusiasm to want to keep going. Used to be I could buy a case because there'd only be one or two figs I don't need, but now? Eh.

    "All over". Wait, a Kmart was useful? Dang, that's going to confuse things. And you found stuff at my WM? NOBODY finds stuff there anymore! "Great shot kid, that was one in a million!"

    Looks like it may have begun!
    They can handle it, they aren't even contracting from the same factories with some of those lines. Each line has been shipping product fine for the past 5 months, the problem is only that they've been shipping the same wave 1 product that whole time because they overestimated the market interest, and that stems from both the SW and TF teams being gutted and replaced at the same time. Every time we have a winter drought it doesn't let up until the summer push starts.

    Don't forget the source on that one, it's Tycho who can make up any scenario based only on the slimmest of hints and guesses.

    They will release something, but right now it's not shipping. The movie products right now are Avengers and next is Battleship (it's getting its own line of figures), then GI Joe I think is later in the summer.

That &*% would been gone in 3 seconds at any valley or LA target/walmart.
    I'm right with you. I was inspired yesterday by DarkKnight's post about his finds and hit 5 stores - all zip. We SoCal types gotta stick together more now than ever.

    Figures also have the MSRP set around $10, which isn't going to help.
    Ugh, that pricepoint is brutal, that line is going to nosedive so hard. I will buy some of the vehicles if they're not stupid-expensive though.

    NO KIDDING!!! I was considering buying a wave 3 or 4 case when I thought I was going to miss out on wave 2, but wave 3 and 4 have the same awful wave 1 pegwarming garbage that wave 2 suffered with only 1 Blu Ray Luke to fill the gap. What the hell is that kind of thinking? These new brand managers for SW and TF both are sucked way too deep into the hype - SW has TPM-fever months after anybody even remembers it got released in 3D; TF seems to think that collectors want an army of $15.29 Bumblebee figures and $20+ crappy Voyager Optimus figures. Meanwhile the good stuff is limited to 1 per case, OR LESS, and is released in tiny numbers because wave 1 for each line is still clogging supply lines. So now you have to ask yourself, do you want to pay over $100 for 2 new figures and a mountain of junk you don't want? HasbroToyShop won't even break the SW TVC cases up anymore because they can't move all the garbage shipped in them.

    I think Battleship is only getting Kreo products, though what a wonderful, impossible dream it would be if Hasbro would produce 3 3/4 scale ships for this film. Cough cough (Flagg) cough cough...

    The GI Joe film comes out at the very end of June. Its toyline is supposed to launch at the end of May, I believe. The last new wave of mass retail Joes hit months ago. The last Marvel Universe wave also hit many months ago. The last Star Wars wave hit in February, I think. The only things Hasbro has released since then are Transformers and the Avengers line. Every other line seems on hold.

    Make or break indeed. I doubt Hasbro would ever ditch the line, but they may go back to the drawing board if the new film and toy-line tank (pun intended).

    I've seen the Battleship Kre-O's and laughed about how insanely stupid any sort of merchandise based on that "movie" is.

    However, if they are making figures, I might get some depending on their construction and usefulness in customs. Any pics that you know of? All I can find is the Kre-O's.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Yesterday evening I found and stashed a TF Prime dlx Hotshot at a mid-valley Target. PM, text or call for location and pic. It's a medium strength stash, so don't wait too long. Thx.

    Maradona's right, I was mistaken about Battleship getting figures, I had seen it in Toy Fair coverage but it was GI Joe images in the wrong folder.

    Heh heh, it's probably him using his phone, he's still pretty wonky with it.
