I can't quite fathom that, seems like a very odd business decision.

Nope, doesn't make an iota of sense to me either, I did bring it up with Hasbro but from what I gathered the retailers weren't keen on the voyagers, but where on the legends

Hah, believe me, i've expressed my interest at working at Hasbro before, and they were impressed with the effort we had trying to get Metroplex, alas. There's no real roles at Hasbro I have the skills for, other than being a fanboy :P

Anyway, back onto the topics of sightings!

Ironic as to what the last posting on this page was given what I'm reporting now:

Generations Voyagers in at Farmers Albany for $50. Springer, FoC Soundwave and Grimlock plus fourth that I forgot to check what it was but would assume it's FoC Blaster.

Wonder what's with the about-face on 'no Generations' and if it will happen again down the track?

Seriously don't know why they bought the stacks of Leader Beast Hunters Optimus & Predaking - how they expect to shift that many at $130 apiece I have no idea...

That is some good news, guess it is one of the revision cases.

Sadly too late for most on the forums who imported but good news for those who wanted.

Wow, I was there on Tuesday and they wern't out. All I saw was a bunch of Prime deluxes including Cliffjumper and soundwave which were both wave 1 I think, and yeah a heap of those huge beast hunter leaders.

Farmers Albany had FoC Soundblaster, Grimlock, Blaster and Generations Springer. 1x each. I relieved them of their Springer, was hoping for a Soundwave too. Would have liked to take the Grimlock but my nagging common sense got in the way.
I counted 9 of the huge new Beast Hunter Leader Primes and 11 of the Predakings, seemed like a lot comparatively to what else was there.
