In other words, will stores be overrun with Joe product, like TRU will have a big showcase at the front of the store, Wal-Marts will get like a dozen cases of everything, OR will the Joe section remain the same size and the movie toys will quietly appear with no fanfare and in small numbers?
Part of me thinks Hasbro will be more cautious because of Indiana Jones, but I still think there will be a GLUT of the first waves of movie toys.
There might even be a Joe wave in there as rare as the Temple of Doom stuff if it doesn't sell.

Given the economy... who knows.
I read that Toys R Us is the last man standing in the realm of toy stores, and even they are in financial trouble.

I have a feeling the first two waves will clutter the shelves and then you'll see randomness from the next few trickle in but I dont think we'll ever see the full complete series of figs at any given store
In the end, you'll see my name carved in stone...

whether the movie is a hit or tanks...
here's my GrapeSodamas vision:
i'm gonna predict the figures flood the shelves...we won't see a big huge mega display anywhere, but the joe section will probably double in size, if not triple with movie figs. (here in austin, most stores have 3 pegs for single card joes and 1 or 2 pegs for comicpacks and that's it.)
after the first week or so...most of the figures will sit on the pegs except for snakes/stormy/ship and maybe HD. we'll be smothered with "c.o.r.p.s." looking scarlets and breakers.
we might get 3 waves of movie figures...if sales of the "sought after figs" are high enough....and then Hasbro will try to release the "hiatused" 25th figures, but under the movie logo, in an attempt to capitalize on the film-familiarity.
in the end, GrapeSoda is sad, because he just wants his fucking Zandar and Zarana.....
GrapeSoda: i'm not procrastinating....i'm just lazy. oh...wait....

I think the toys will flood shelves, be successful, not as successful as TF2, but close to TF1, and not as problematic to find as the TF1 toys.
