So I figure I would rant... it's been a while. In either case, here we are in 2011 and Toys R Us and most stores don't even have an online store inventory checker. I am really damn tired of hunting for the last year or so, especially with the distribution the shitty stores near me have. There is nothing better then staying on hold at a store to check inventory when it could be done in 3 seconds on line. It gets old and rather quickly. If I knew x,y, z store had 10 in stock of said item I would drive the 20 or 30 miles to get it. But no, I am constantly hunting or calling stores. OLD. Funny thing is, it is not even a Transformer that put me over the edge. It's the damn 8" Thundercat figures. After calling like 6 TRUs and being on hold forever, I just lost it. I know there is online stores, but realistically, I must have spent $200+ on just shipping this year (even with POL) and I cannot even think about the amount I spent on gas hunting. Come on stores, get a freaking online inventory system. Pityful. Please feel free to bash me if you like.
