    Where the hell can I find this junk other than ebay? It's not because they're sold out, I don't think a lot of retailers are carrying it.

    I've seen 'em at TRU. I dunno anything about it; I just noticed b/c they're on an island/endcap next to the SW toys.

    Yep saw them at a TRU. Maybe they are an exclusive to them. Try their website they may have them. At the one I saw them at they were with the non-popular stuff like left over POTC and the Sonic stuff.

    I've only seen the at TRU too.

    They're not that great. The Nicole Kidman figure looks really homely, which should be a crime.

    There are a zillion of these on an endcap at my TRU, including about 50 polar bears. Nobody is buying them, even during the last minute Christmas rush when people will buy ANYTHING since all the good stuff is sold out.

    So how come no one buying the toys...is it due to bad publicity or something? I actually found the show more entertaining than Narnia - the polar bear fight was pretty cool IMO.

    The movie was fine but not all movies need to have toy merchandise, or even seem fit to have toys. I don't think the Pirates of the Carribean toys sold well either (at least not around here) but everyone loves the movie.

    The movie was a bit of a flop, I would imagine that's the reason-- it won't even make its money back until DVD sales, probably. Bad publicity could also have something to do with it indirectly, I imagine.
