    Eagan Walmart found must have discovered a surplus because they had three each of Wave 1 Leaders.

    When does the Minnetonka TRU shut down?

    Stopped at Northtown (Blaine) TRU today. You could tell things are up just entering the store. The place had a good amount of people with kids in it (due to Spring Break week), but the shelves seemed...less filled than the past. The whole place just felt very somber..like when my old workplace Rainbow Foods found out we were closing down.

    Istill ended up buying a Namor Marvel Legends figure for me, and a couple My Little Pony: Equestria Girls sets for my cousin's daughter's birthday coming up next week that were supposed to be 'Buy One, Get One 40% Off", but looking at the receipt, the sale didn't take...or they're no longer going by the sales prices. Didn't notice this until I got home a little bit ago. Also, the cashier did not ask about the Rewards card, so reading about some people saying their Reward points and coupons no longer were there when logging online...I'm thinking they cut that completely already. Maybe. Or the cashier forgot to ask me cause of obvious distraction.

    Whatever the case, this MIGHT be the final time I'll be shopping at TRU. Feels weird to think that.

    Also of note, the couple of G2 Superion sets that had been there for weeks were suddenly gone. Unlike the Minnetonka store that had tons and were 30% off, these were never discounted, but someone bought them.

    Coon Rapids Riverplace Target has a wasteland of pegs and two each of leader Optimus and Rodimus down below. Stopped in at Five Below next door, they have a healthy selection of Ptero, Fangry and Sawback, no Ramhorns.

    If, during TRU's death throes, anyone clocks the Marvel Legends Scarlet Witch/Vision 2-pack, and has the money to front, I would gladly come to you for pick up and payment.

    Or a sighting works, too:)

    Are all the TRuS stores having sales? Or just select stores? It is a Sad thing for myself that this is happening.. Has always been a effort to get to one...1-2+ hrs.drives... Going to have to try to grab a Primus repaint... As I feel it is a big request for anyone of our Twin Cities dweller's to grab one.. Will have to hope next week I can snag one.

    Much thanks to Kham for setting me up with both the ML Scarlet/Vision set AND Iron Spider! Definitely not counting on seeing the TRU exclusive sets make it into stores.

    I've been waiting to get into Marvel until they put out a Vision so I can at least get the main cast. With the MCU 10th anniversary figures coming out, I should be able to round out my collection in a few months.

    I swung by Minnetonka TRU Friday night. As one employee stated, it looked like a warzone. My cashier did ask me about my Rewards, though I didn't have any. There wasn't a single Transformer left in the store. I grabbed a couple diecast cars just for kicks. It's kinda weird to think that I went from being a wee lad all the way to an adult, but still (occasionally) bought toys from that ToysRUs.

    Target must be looking to move Wave 1 because they've got PotP Deluxes on sale again this week.
