1) Kids love Bumblebee, which is why they pack so many in. Three Bumblebees in wave 1, three in Wave 2. According to Hasbro, he's far and away kids favorite character, they can't get enough of him.


It's true - the kid market is still far bigger than the collector market.

One piece of anecdotal evidence - when Amazon was running deep discounts on KREO sets around Christmas time, the only set that was sold out prior (and thus was selling for above retail price) was Bumblebee.

Movie Trilogy line?

I really hope this is some kind of rumor. I would love for Hasbro to just leave the movie shit alone for awhile, because the world no longer needs even more repaints and re-releases of Bumblebee, Ratchet and Optimus Prime.

I mean, I know the movies revitalized the franchise but enough is enough at this point. Its been almost five straight years of movie stuff on the pegs. Time to concentrate on Prime and keep making new Generations figures while the movie stuff just takes a rest.


Yup, Movie Trilogy. Should be running alongside Prime.

Amen to that.

What I don't understand with DOTM is why it was so scattershot? The movie's been released on DVD, and there are major characters still missing (Soundwave, Wheeljack, Mirage) yet plenty of new molds of characters that were never in the movie. Or any movie. It's so WTF.


I think they're saving some stuff for the Movie Trilogy line in 2012 - we've seen Wheeljack and Soundwave so far, and deluxe Leadfoot is supposed to be a Target exclusive.

Compared to the other TF movie lines, DOTM seems to be ending much sooner, though.

It was online only and ended sometime last night. I missed it as well. After I finally decided to pull the trigger on some Xmas presents, the promo was over.


According to prim444, there's another BOGO @ TRU coming next week...
