They seem to be flying off the shelves at my local Toys R Us. When I first
went in to take a look, they had about 50 or so 1/144 scale kits and around
2 dozen 1/100. Today, all they had only about 15 1/144 kits.

One thing I noticed, even back when they had a lot of kits they didn't have
much selection. They had a lot of two or three models (Shenlong, Deathsythe
Hell and Sandrock) and just one or two of the others. They didn't have any
Tallgeese kits at all, which it what I was looking for.
