Which Walmart did you find them at?
Found them @ the walmart on coors/I-40. Also found them in Grants NM walmart when I stopped by on my way to ABQ. So they should be hitting mass retail here real quick.
Just picked up Grimlock, Blackwing, and Rippersnapper at Eubank walmart. Need 2 dinos and moonracer.
Update: Also found 3 or 4 RoadTraps at wyoming walmart. Not a single BattleClash in sight. So I have half a doucon!
Bernalillo Walmart had one ripper snapper, one dreadwingd and a bunch of wave 2 legends.
One potp starscream as well, and lots of the BOA power rangers final era.
Almost tempted to grab battletrap. But I have no attachment to the design, so I passed.
Sounds like TRU is thinking of closing more stores beyond the announced 182 earlier. Nothing confirmed, but the UK stores have declared bankruptcy. I think they are shutting all their stores there. Just keep and ear out for TRU news.
I hope I can afford to go pick the meat from the dry, dead corpse of TRU westside when it finally dies... I've been watching it starve since MP-09's US release.
They announced 200 more US stores closing as well, but haven't confirmed which stores, yet. I could see us losing one of our stores for sure.
frankly, I see the one at winrock closing, it's been run down for over a decade, and now that "THE Q" has forged winrock into an outdoor strip mall type facility, the "dumpster grunge toy store" aesthetic is not very fitting.
but it IS in a good location.
I’m starting to get the feeling that you have something against TRU.
If they close one of the stores, it won't be Winrock. The Westside store has more expensive rent so it would be that one.
was apparently told to the employees that it wasn't true. But there's been no public statement about that. The 200 more stores was also not something confirmed either it was "according to people briefed on the matter, who were not authorized to speak publicly."
I thought cogman wasn't released in the US?
also, I don't have anything against TRU per se, I just, am tired of them both having exclusives, AND charging $5 more for everything, so I am waiting for a final clearance.
Transformers The Last Knight Deluxe Cogman Out At US Toys R Us - Transformers News - TFW2005
If the item is sold at other stores you can price match it.
He came out, barely. I got mine off amazon for $30, but had a $10 gift card too. He’s a pretty great fogure, it’s a bummer so many will miss out on him because of distribution or lack of buying anything movie.
You realize them closing is also a bad thing (aside from the people being out of work) for the toy industry in general right?
There is a couple pegs full of the prime masters in at the Bernalillio Walmart, as well as a full assortment of wave one and two deluxes.
The mass manufactured toy industry is dying already, hell, most of the economy is dying, and i don't really see it getting loads better for the US rapidly, not tryingnto be a downer, but i personally prefer quality over quantity, and betweennone figure like peru kill a year, or fifty like TR blurr, I prefer peru kill.
I would love to have a booming toy industry, but i have watched transformers and toys overall shifting in quality for the past decade... Heck, third party is part of why I am even on TFW, because the reissue rotf bruticus packs were shelfwarming before third party upgrades made then hard to get, meanwhile, I have watched kids have apps and software pushed instead of toys, so i have been expecting this slow death for years.
Hey guys. Just some more news about TRU for you guys. It's not good. TRU is talking about closing ALL U.S. based stores. I'm sure we'll hear more about this soon.
