    So for anyone wondering about the Toysrus Closing rumors, they are just that at the moment, rumors. No one from toysrus has said they are all closing down and what’s been said has been hearsay. On Monday/Tuesday, that’s possibly when the official announcement will be out.

    Did anyone ever come across TR Ramhorn? He is the only one I still need and never saw him here.

    nope, and he's not showing up on the sites i check. ebay prices for him are insane.

    and i wanted to drop a note about the studio series line showing up. it's in kroger owned stores, but i know they won't be dropping in regular king soopers stores because we just had our toy reset and it was tiny. i do know, though, that the big marketplace stores with the big toy aisles should be getting them. if you live near one, start checking them

    I found deluxe wave 2 at Quincy Walmart today around noon. I left a Sludge and Snarl. That catches me up for the time being.

    You wouldn't. They would start clearancing stuff a week after the announcement (or, roughly, a month before absolute store closure), something like 15-25%, and then keep dropping prices each week until the closure date. It's not a "right away" thing.

    I was in Minneapolis over the weekend. One of their stores must have been an early closer. Everything was on sale (including fixtures) for 30-50% off. Except branded Lego stuff. Lego is apparently recession-proof. I picked up a G2 Superion for just under $50.

    Looks like most Wal marts have restocked wave 2 deluxes in the north Denver areas.

    i offically hate the walmart off arapahoe and havana. that place is just garbage for toys. the action figure area is literally half empty the entire length of the aisle, but they had 2 huge displays of clearanced star wars black series figures. i wouldn't be surprised to find out no one bothers doing any work in that area

    Wave 2 deluxes (at least one of each one) and Wave 1 Rodimus Prime leaders have been sighted at the Federal/Evans WM and the Cinderella City (285/Santa Fe) WM, this was yesterday.

    Gotta put together my Dinobot combiner this weekend...my 18 month old son is already wanting to play with dinosaur transformers. If I ask him what Trypticon says (he's on a shelf in my son's room), he will smile and say "ROOAAAAAR!!!!". Same with the PoTP dinobots.

    At the Walmart off of 136th and Colorado, there was one Blackwing.

    When I left, there were zero.

    The ToysRUs off of Corbett has started their sales. It's at 10% off of almost everything besides LEGOs and I think video games.

    If anyone had any doubt as to why TRU is going out of business...I stopped by their Westminster location this morning.

    With the 10% off starting point, the transformers are STILL more expensive than Target & WalMart. Had a bunch of POTP starscreams, some Deluxe Wave 1, Legends size wave 1, and a couple of those horribly re-colored Cybertron Primus figures.

    I feel for those losing their jobs...but the idiots running the company are to blame, not WalMart, not Amazon.
