    Hey, My mom's going to the states for Black Friday shopping and i want to know if TRU's should still have Universe Darkwing.

    They never got released in Canada and kept passing on them each time i saw them in the states over the summer, last i saw them was in August.

    He's been shelfwarming the crap out of every TRU in Florida that I've been to in the past year.

    The last time I was at a TRU (which I'll admit has been a little while) I can tell you that there were most certainly Countdowns left, still at the full $30. Probably Darkwind too, but I didn't go looking through what was there. At the least, there's a reasonable chance. Not like trying to track down a Hardhead or Skyfall at this point. :)

    I was at TRU this morning and they had 4 TFU 2.0 Darkwind figures on the bottom shelf, plus approximately 8 more up on the top shelves. Only 3 Countdowns, though. The other two TRUs I visit regularly have similar amounts of both figures.

    There were several Darkwings left at my local TRU the last time I was there.

    I can't say for sure, but he is more than likely there (it of course depends on your area). Back in March or so, I went to a TRU and bought a Darkwing but couldn't find a Countdown. Therefore, I was convinced they would never restock and I had missed the boat (after all, why restock when all of their other exclusives, like the Hoist/Mixmaster pack, weren't selling?) so I came to the board to buy a Countdown.

    Fast forward to September or so, I hadn't been back to TRU in that whole time, but I came to buy Grimlock and some other impulse purchases. And amusing enough, Countdown was back, along with Darkwing and some other old crap. I impulse bought the Hoist set, but had already bought Countdown so I didn't need another :p

    The Long Island City TRU in Queens NY has a huge stack of them. I've been waiting for him to go on clearance for a very long time.

    Odds are all the Exclusives will be flushed from the distribution centers for black friday.

    Count the Inland Empire in California as a place where he's still readily available. There were three or four Darkwings and a couple Countdowns still at the Ontario TRU when I was there last night.

    These did get released in Canada. Unless that Darkwind I got at an NS TRU was an illusion. And the other 7 that were also there were as well.
