    2 simple explanations:
    1) Target had to clear their shelves for ROTF stuff, and just waiting to put it out.

    2)The TRU sold some ROTF toys and Hasbro punished them....

    Yeah but strange for nothing, no unsold activators or anything, and for there to be no clear space for them.

    LOL

    Another sighting, in the NY kinokuniya store they had USA Edition Silverbolt for about $70 USD. OMG it's so white! I've seen pictures but I still didn't expect it to be so white! It looks a lot better than Hasbro's grey.

    Saw a ROTF FAB today at a Manhattan Kmart (two of the same figure) for $14. Don't know if they'd sell it because I wasn't interested enough to try (and since their deluxes were $15 I think FABs could probably be bought cheaper elsewhere anyway).

    No ROTF toys at Kmart Manhattan today but they do have price tags. Realgear for 10.69. Legends for $6.39. Deluxes for the same price as their ani deluxes $14.99.

    And I was shocked that the Gravity Bots (those are those stand up non-Transforming things right?) were tagged at $17.49, $2.50 USD more than deluxes!? i thought they were spychanger sized?

    Yeah, I saw someone quote a high price for those Gravity bots on another forum. If I remember correctly, they are a little smaller than Deluxe (I think about G1 Battlecharger size), but I think the high price is because they felt heavy, so maybe the diecast and more expensive shipping (like the Titaniums), makes them more expensive than deluxes. But at that US$ price, those are gonna be like AU$40 here, and I can't see that as being considered good value here, for that size (which is what consumers will see, size not weight, as a determining factor for value).

    An update to Jaydisc's photos of TRU New York. Here's how it looked last week. Still mainly Animated stuff with some Universe stuff.





    And above it a ROTF-inspired movie banner:



    The Preview toys are not out in the US because apparently (according to the US boards) the Preview toys boxes have the same embargo date as the rest of the ROTF toys

    Found in the US is the Devastator RPMs trackset, and the Deluxe wave with Jolt, Dead End, Blazemaster and Skids/Mudflap Icecream truck, so should be here soon as well.
