Walmart in Athens has RID Warrior Blurr (x2), Windblade, & Skywarp
Kmart refused to sell me the movie figures before the street date too. the street date is 4-24-17. They did not offer to hold or give me a discount. I'm happy Kmart is going under.
You didn't get your toys, so you wish for a company's demise and for their employees to lose what's possibly their only job because you're mad?
You're entitled to nothing.
You deserve nothing.
This is the 5th time around, you'd think it would've sunken it at this point.
I don't see why his opinion of kmart warrants this type of reaction, especially when their poor business practices and lack of customer service is both the reason for their demise and his frustration.
I stopped in at the Willoughby Target and found they have two Broadsides in stock. I left them both, since I'm not sure I'm interested. They also had two each of Hot Rod and Twinferno, one TR Soundwave, and a CW leader Skywarp. They will probably always have the Skywarp.
You hear the same stories from walmarts and targets as well when items are street dated.. those stores aren't folding.
Fact is, we all know they're street dated.
Also.. what about the people who know they're street dated, and go to the store on that date, only to see the stores sold them prior to the date? What about their frustration?
This. A million times this. I went to a target once near me to buy the Guardians 2 Marvel Legends wave. They had them in the back. Denied to sell them to me because of street date. They tell me to come back on that Sunday when they can sell them to me. I stop in a few days later (before the Sunday) and they are out and all sold but 1.
Where's my recourse? They wouldn't hold them for me and broke the street date for someone else.......
I get the frustration for street dated stuff but if it's out it's honestly fair game.
One Sixshot at Bridgewater Falls Target. Color me surprised. ..
Bridgewater Falls target had 2 Broadside yesterday. I bought 1 and the other six shot a week or so ago. The Walmart near Bridgewater Falls has 3 Astrotrains, 2 Broadsides and 3 Soundwaves.
Anyone have any leads on Leader Class Blaster or voyager Optimus Prime?
One Broadside at the Target on Alexis
One Broadside at the Target on Sawmill 6pm tonight
So... A mistake by an employee who's probably pretty low on the ladder as rungs go is worth wishing for everyone to lose their jobs and their entire company to go under because he can't have his toys for a few more days?
I've been turned down before. I bitched and complained, then people hammered it into my head and I actually saw the error of my ways. It helps that I worked retail and my son does as well. After seeing what it's like from the other side, I think he's being absolutely ridiculous.
Here's an idea, go find a retailer that IS willing to sell them to you. The Chosen Prime, for example. They were selling them. People walked away happy and they were shipped right to their door. No muss, no fuss.
We have to remember we are not the only people of importance on this planet. People makes mistakes, no one is perfect. If that gets one to wish for disaster and destruction, that's pretty awful.
Just a heads up for anyone hunting retail for Sky Shadow, Hasbrotoystore has him for $45, and you get free shipping and can grab another 20% off by using a new email address to order. Just ordered mine (along with RID Blurr and Soundwave) instead of waiting for him to show up in stores. I think all I got left to find for wave 4 now is Perceptor/Topspin/Krok.
Sugarcreek Walmart has the new wave of RID Warriors out. Man that Windblade redeco is ugly...
Target off Fishinger has (2) Sky Shadow's and (2) Kickback's with some wave 3 Deluxe's.
Good looking out. Picked up one Sky Shadow. One left.
$25 gift card I've had in my pocket plus a target red card = $20 Sky Shadow.
Wal-Mart Beavercreek - RID Warrior Blurr/Soundwave/Masked Windblade wave, and TR Bumblebee/Kickback
Target Beavercreek - TR Broadside x4
Kroger Marketplace Beavercreek(Fairfield Rd.) - The Last Knight Turbo Changer Optimus & Bumblebee (no idea if they are actually selling them, but they're on the shelf)
K-Mart in Chillicothe had 4 TR Broadside. All of the boxes was damaged. I bought the least one damaged.
