    Doesn't mean those employees weren't legitimately victims. Bain and their stooges burglarized them.

    That's the point really. Nobody wakes up and says "herp derp imma go work for Bain." Bain just shows up and takes your job, your pension, and, like dominoes, other parts of your life. Sure, you can try to dodge some of those bullets but Bain has already put you in the position of having to dodge them at all.

    My Local TRU is finally winding down, looking sad. Only TF left was Grotesque. They still had about 25-30. Now marked down to 10 bucks.

    Not even Grotusque, the TF section was so empty I thought I was in Walmart.

    All TFs gone, replaced with a wall of minions!

    I just came back from mine and there's nooooo TFs. Even the RiD cheap combiners were bought up. I waited too long to go back after picking up some other stuff on my last TRU visit. It's honestly sad to see the store the way it is. The bikes are even gone. :(

    All the Transformers were wiped out from my TRU before the going out of business sales even started.
