But, in the short term anyway, TRU IS continuing outside the USA. The central European and Canadian TRU operations have been sold and will go on. Haven't heard about the Asian operation. But I be surprised if it folded. And even this TRU Auzzie story says they're trying to keep things going.
TRU Australia "I don't feel so good"
It's utterly sad that Tru buyout in '05 would ultimately lead to their undoing, years later. With hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in interest alone....it was just a matter of time.
Cheers to you Tru! For attempting to face an Impossible force! ...even if it led to defeat. I commend your bravery.
please send us grotusques for 10$
that would be a god send
Question for those over on the big island. Is Hasbro Australia and Hasbro NZ going to continue distribution with Tru gone? As in, is there enough brick and mortar support?
Also, is there an etailer , located in Australia?
Things I ponder at one a.m.
Probably. They still stock at plenty of other stores (Target, Kmart & Myers), and that's not factoring independent toy stores and hobby retailers.
We didnt get it in Australia.
What he said. I had to have it imported from TRU America via Australia Post Shopmate.
Well, good to see plenty of support to keep Hasbro Australia and hasbro NZ. Hopefully they will up their distribution to you folks someday... I'm truly surprised...that with Grotusque and Arcee being on tru.com. they hadn't thought of a limited allocation to the big island. Seems plenty of tf fans over there. It's odd to me they seem to shaft the Australian market. Like, how hard is it to send a small allocation on the next shipment? Even 20/40 of those boxes surely couldn't cost that much in addition to regular shipment. It saddens me in the way, that I feel like hasbro says, "well, sorry folks. These sell out no prob over in the states and other regions. Can't help you Australian market.". >_> Wth?

Fuck...so they've taken everyone's preorder money for Shadow Panther? BLOODY HELL!
I actually know the guy who did the aussie translation for the manual and bio (you can tell it's him if he puts a latin phrase somewhere; that's his calling card). Wonder if he got properly paid for it.
Hey, those golden parachutes for execs cost money!!
So....is the Impactor Vs Mirage thing still happening.....
That blows. Hard.
hahaha, what the fuck? "we have your money, but can't give your product. no refunds though!"
go fuck yourselves. this is why you can't trust suits.
That's a regular release for the next Generations subline after PotP.
Black is always such a sexy color
This makes me feel sick for all our Australian friends here.
"Hey we took your money back when there was no way you'd know this would happen and now you can't have it back. It's probably too late to get a reimbursement from your credit card company too because we thought you'd try that but, hey, you can buy some of our excess inventory that nobody wanted."
Way to go out on a downer tru Au.
