As of right now (without the movie push), not very well.
The 4 stores I visited have plenty of product.
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...

This has been mentioned before but I think its unfair to compare the line to the Star Trek, Terminator, Indy and Wolverine movie figures just because they are all movie lines.
The joe figures are incredible in detail and quality which will help sales. GI Joe also has an established fan base and its one of very few toy lines that has profited WITHOUT having a hit movie to go along with it. Probably GI Joe and Star Wars are kings in this area with possibly Transformers being right behind them.
There is an interest with several age groups right now. The characters appeal to the Joe followers while the spring-loaded weapons, etc can attract kids to get them for playing. Thus far, Hasbro has done a very good job in putting out this line.
It was also mentioned about the line continuing and I have no problem with that but with 37 figures already out, I hope they don't start making a bunch of re-paints and dupes of characters just to extend it to another 37 characters. If you don't have 20 more characters, etc then don't make that many more figures.
The ROC line has quality thus far.

In Nova Scotia Canada, I've only found one store that had individual figures (Toys r' us). They had the first 3 waves, and hadn't looked like they had sold a single figure. I do believe this was the first day the product had been on store shelves though(Sun July 5).
Strangely there wasn't a single Scarlett in the lot, and only one Cover Girl, who looked like she had clown make-up on.
I bought 6 of the single carded figures (Shipwreck, Destro, Heavy Duty(camo), Zartan, Storm Shadow, and Baroness. I had bought the Raven, and APV the previous day at my local Walmart, which had tons of vehicles, and no figures out yet. The level of quality in some of the figures is amazing, Shipwreck, and Destro are stunning, and make their 25th counterparts look dull.

i dont know about the ROC toys, way too new, but the Transformers line is selling like hotcakes in my area, albeit a few shelfwarmers. and when i mean line, I mean the real complex figures in deluxe, voyager and leader class. not the Fast action battlers, gravity bots, and other junk that is rotting on the shelves. the terminator figures are rotting on the shelves, i think im the only one who bought any in all my stores, and now they are on clearance at target. also the star trek figures havent moved at all either, both of these due to quality im sure. but the transformers are kickin butt, and some of them are already becoming hard to find!

After visiting 3 stores tonight that I had purchased figures from the day before, all 3 had sold through the majority of their stock of figures. The vehicles were still around though. I am definitely seeing a trend to what people are buying around here and honestly it kind of sucks. I really hope that shipments keep coming in of these figures so the people that are trying to horde certain ones can choke on them and destroy the secondary market at least for awhile as well.

This is just about what I was going to say. Time will tell if it's Star Wars or Indiana Jones.

Not very fast or at all where I am. Aside from me and some randoms, the toys are staying put.
When I was browsing last week, some kids walked up to the toys, one said "What's this?" and the other kid replied "Dunno. Some movie coming out."
When it came to Transformers, they were so happy and kept screaming how they want to be Bumblebee right in the middle of the asile.

At my local Target two cases of wave 1 lasted for 3 days. Plus 3 cases of vehicles also gone. They are as of yesterday, SOLD OUT.
