    Universe Onslaught? I don't even think he's on shelves anymore. Good luck with finding him anywhere.

    Yeah! How dare they refuse to dig through boxes of stock to find a discontinued toy!

    The same thing happened to me. I'd have my RID Rail Racer by now if they looked for it!:mad

    You do know when Universe Onslaught was released right? He probably wasn't saying "no" about helping you, but about the fact that they haven't gotten a Universe Onslaught in in half a year now.

    Try Ebay or the Junkion. Some online retailers might even have the Japanese "US ver." Onslaught in the less-dull color scheme. Only thing you'd find in store might be the Hardhead repaint, and even that's a stretch.

    And no one's an asshole for not having a toy that hasn't seen distribution in over 6 months, FYI.

    Go to TRU. They're loaded with Universe stuff still, and my bet is it'll be on clearance pretty soon.

    If they just said "No", and that's it, that's very rude. Workers don't really care anymore. To the employees, what's on the shelves is all there is, and the back of the store deosn't exist when someone asks.

    Maybe he knew for a fact that they didn't have it.

    Not ALL employees don't check for stuff out of laziness or not caring. Sometimes they know what they have and what they don't have.

    To be fair, I worked at TRU in high school, and a lot of times there is nothing in "the back". If there was, there wouldn't be empty shelves. That's not to say the guy wasn't a douche, I'm just saying from experience, most of the time, what you see is what they got

    When i worked for them we never had stock in the back after load days.

    As a dept supervisor we restock popular toys every day.

    So unless there were 4 Powerglides on the shelf they didn't have it.

    Shelves used to be full of Universe Ultras at my TRU... before Christmas. As soon as they went on sale for $10-15 (at least 2-3 times, as I recall), they were gone.

    I don't know if that's what happened over in your area, but good luck finding one now.

    Slightly off-topic, but if you're actually looking for Rail Racer, ToyArena has the Korean JRX giftset for $50.
