@  Varnon : (10 December 2016 - 05:44 PM)

I see the adds fine... but oh lort, what did I click on to make ladychinesedate and muslimmatrimonial ads come up?

@  ShadowMan024 : (10 December 2016 - 05:39 PM)

Why am I bringing that up? Because it also probably echoes how Marvel feels about the DC cinematic universe.

@  Rycochet : (10 December 2016 - 06:00 AM)

I always find the subscriber numbers given by places like Facebook and Youtube highly dubious. He may have 50 million accounts subscribing to his videos, but how many of those actually watch, how many are unique people and not a 13 year old's 16 different youtube accounts and so on and so forth.

@  Rycochet : (09 December 2016 - 12:16 PM)

I doubt it's to help anyone but himself, by pointing out he can and will possibly totally delete his channel and getting a lot of buzz online for it, I'm sure he's hoping some other internet company or media dinosaur is going to throw money around to get him on board.

@  The Doctor Who : (09 December 2016 - 12:11 PM)

I mean, YouTube does have some really awful and content-creator-unfriendly policies, but, uh, I don't see what that would do to help...

@  Benbot : (09 December 2016 - 11:54 AM)

To protest how Youtube promotes certain videos and channels over others. Because...he doesn't get enough views...?

Why would he delete a source of income for basically doing nothing?

@  Dracula : (09 December 2016 - 11:43 AM)

He's a guy that does let's plays, and he claimed he'd delete his channel in protest of YouTube if he reached...what, 50M subscribers?

I don't know if any other regions are having this issue, but I can say that southwestern PA has been a nightmare for any new product. No Prime, no FE, not even wave 5 of the MechTech. I've poked around on the sightings, but nothing near me. Just RotF eyesores and empty pegs as far as the eyes can see Anyone else feeling the boredom/frustration?

When you find yourself standing on the brink of surrender, know that many in the past faced trials such as your own, but overcame them with their great conviction.
No matter the greatness of your desperation, the failures of your efforts, or the injustice of your treatment, at least a few men have stared into the same challenges and emerged victorious from these tests.
Such men are not only a great source of inspiration, but also the very foundation upon which modern society rests.

I got my wave 1 Prime deluxes (Soundwave and Wheeljack) weeks ago at the Mt. Nebo store. I called beforehand and they pulled the figures I asked, and held them at electronics.

(We're in the same area)

The Century III Mall Walmart kind of sucks though, very disappointing.

Wave 5 of the DotM deluxes (Air Raid, Armor Topsin, Dark Steel) has been out here and there and has hit partial saturation. Kohl's and Target in particular have gotten them in in decent numbers.

Prime First Edition was canceled in the US and Toys'R'Us is more than likely not going to stock any more of the first wave of deluxes which they had over the holiday.

Prime RiD is coming shortly...Target stores have received stock, Walmarts have received stock and put some of it out, and Toys'R'Us stores have been receiving stock and putting it out since a couple of weeks ago.

I don't read TFW2005 much anymore but one section I like there is the sightings by state. You might be able to get a lead on figures in your area or even make some friends who will pick them up for you or send you a text if they see something you want.

Just did a store run around here.

TRU - 2 RiD Bumblebee, 3 RiD Voyager Optimus, 2-pegs full of Cyberverse Prime BB and Cliffjumper+1 Cyb Ratchet and 1 Cyb Vehicon, and LOTS of Bot Shots.

Target - One case of Prime Cyberverse.

Walmart - nothin yet.


ZacWilliam, yeah, the Pre-Easter season reset will likely bring these to saturation... Just wait a couple weeks.

I used to run the Sightings Forum here and my opinion is that both are valuable. Sightings by State for the reasons you state, and sightings by figure give a better idea of which store chains to check and what level of saturation the figures have hit. If you collect for a while you get a sense of people in your area anyway.

On tfw there is a thread where you can search target stores and see if its in stock.

Also note that Walmart has started their store inventory this week, so depending on store/region, they might not be putting out new product for another week or two. To make inventory easier, managers (when I worked there) were often told NOT to put out extra product unless absolutely necessary (a case is easier to count than 12 pegged figures)
