No More Toys R Us Exclusives from Independent Retailers - Hasbro & TRU Knuckle Down !
Well that sucks. I don't have a toys r us... guess ill have to decide if I want to pay scalpers prices....
Skywarp181, you shouldn't have to worry about that, there are plenty of awesome members on here that would be willing to help you out.
I wonder if this means that Toys R Us will, you know, actually stock their exclusives now.
I've never not been able to get one of their exclusives. My TRU actually still has tons of the RotF exclusives still, 2 years later.
Great. Now i just need to find out when my Local TRU is getting Rodimus so i can get there before opening
TRU is the best for getting exclusives. Unlike say Wal-Mart.
You mean they want their exclusives to be exclusive? Shocker!!1!
Hopefully that means they actually HAVE more of their exclusives in stock to sell them longer.
Masterpiece Grimlock disagrees with you.
I even ordered it online and TRU sent me an email that they 'may' not have any stock to ship their orders.
I don't have him either. Because I didn't have $90 to drop when he was out. It's VERY rare that I don't see a TRU exclusive in person in the store. With Wal-Mart it's a 50/50 crap shoot whether it's released here at all.
Must be the area because TRU here sucks nut when it cones to stocking their exclusives.
kinda sucks, especially for those that don't have a tru around, but not surprising
Availability of TRU exclusives in my area seems to only extend to the shelfwarmers. I never saw MP Grimlock at all...never saw many of the G1 reissues at all...they got in Animated Arcee and Hot Rod ONCE, as far as I was able to tell, and I bought both those.
Most of the TRUs around here still have Animated Rodimus, Ratchet & Ironhide on the shelves. No arcee though. They were fairly plentiful around here.
I had a few TRUs around here who literally had dozens of them. The one nearest had 40 at one point. I counted the cases, and oddly enough I was at a TRU in NJ over the weekened and to my surprise they had TWO sitting on the shelf.
Honestly, I think this is a good move, as it means more stock should go to the actual TRU stores and make it easier to get their exclusives.
yea mines the same way. that and I refuse to pay theyre like $3 tp $5 markup on deluxes and the like
Fine with me I need to get 3 of the upcoming Rodimus for my Display cases.
Well that's not so bad, the independents sellers are they one who would really suffers.
Maybe Rodimus will be plenitful. I guess I'm lucky I live by 4 TRUs...
I wonder if this is the beginning of a ripple effect of hasbro being pro active about product. Maybe third parties next?
So does this mean online retailers like BBTS and the like will never hold TRU exclsuives?
This blows BALLS man.
I still have yet to see any decent TRU Exclusives.
I missed out on Animated Hotrod, Masterpiece Grimlock and man many more.
Even way back when Armada, RID and the commemorative stuff was around I missed all the exclusives.
If the Scalpers ain't hording them all it's other collectors. that buy 3 to 4 figures a pop.
