    What the ****!? Is that even legal? Is that why finding current and wanted items in stores is such a pain in the ass? That's some bull**** right there.

    And retail stores wonder why more and more people prefer shopping online.

    It is Christmas time, this is a smallish market area, this is the only TRU for about 5o miles in any direction

    And they have had no
    Voagers
    leader
    Legends
    Titan Master
    2 or 3 Deluxes from a few waves back
    No Trypticons that I have EVER seen there
    Never seen Chaos on Velocitron there
    I check pretty often and its been that way for MONTHS
    Depriving an ENTIRE MARKET AREA of ANY Generations transformers that get released at TRU first.
    But BOOOY OH BOY the local comic shops are WELL stocked at 2.5 to 3 times MSRP on ALL This stuff.
    Its been like that for YEARS. Ive tried filing complaints and they always say they have no control over what they get sent, which cant be true if a store stays wiped out its stupid for coporate NOT to resupply them, Its like that because...

    THEY ARENT EVEN BUYING THE STUFF SO IT IS STILL IN THE COMPUTER AS IN STOCK. They STEAL it and sell it to the comic shops, if a comic shop doesn't buy it they can just shove it back in the store.

    Wooooow.... I've heard of TRU employees making deals & selling out the back to scalpers (or just being scalpers themselves) before, but that's a new one for me. Everytime I see or hear about something like this it really pisses me off.

    Not only are they screwing over fans and collectors, but they're also more (most) importantly depriving kids of toys they might have wanted. And right before Christmas no less! People like that ruin it for everyone.

    If that comic shop were near me I'd put a brick through their window and graffiti "SCALPERS" across the storefront, but hey that's just me

    I would love to have someone take a couple of pictures of them doing that and send them to TRU corporate HQ.

    That might be the only way to stop them from doing this. Go over their heads to TRU. I don't think TRU would be proud of what their employees are doing.

    I'll wait for them to show up at Walmart for $25. I won't give Toys R Us or Hasbro the satisfaction of paying $30 for a Voyager.
    They literally do not care. The store manager might care, but he or she is most likely in on it. Ebay scalpers have their kids work at stores just to steal stuff for them. Ebay scalpers are about the same level as drug dealers who use their kids to deal.

    Unfortunately, sightings boards like this are based upon the honor system. Problem is that many people without it take advantage of the vast majority of us that do.
