    The Toys R Us in Massachusetts seems to be closing down.
    So to everyone who is interested in a Transformers G1 Hasbro Re-Issue of Stepper, he can be purchased for 50% off at South Bay.
    I was lucky to get him for $18. But that seems to be the only Transformers Re-issue they have.
    Besides Kay Bee having Sideswipe. :rock  :rock  :rock

    I would say "waste". Although $3 has been reported, I've never seen one that low. The 3 stores I've been to still have him at $34.99

    I think he is $12 in dedham, and $9 in north attleboro, and those stores aint even closing.

    heck BBTS has the japanese version for $19.99 on clearance, and Digital Toys, located in Mass, has the japanese version for $24.99, but you can get him for $10 if you spend $100 on other stuff.

    Hmm, I may have to check TRU tomorrow. I've wanted a Ricochet, but not nearly enough to pay $35 for him. $3, though, that just may be worth it. :D

    I can't return the dud any ways.
    Goes to show how stupid I am. :horse: 
    But still, what's up with Toys R Us being that asinine to charge Stepper with Nightstick 50% and make him $18?!
    :stick:  :stick:  :stick:  :stick:  :stick: 
    The bright side is I have a Targetmaster.
    The downside was a well hidden $10 Rodimus Prime in a back shelf behind Stepper. I nearly got him until some 7 year old grabbed it first. :sly2:  Ouced by a kid!

    Ouch.
    Sorry to hear that. I still can't believe a kid ouced me and jumped up that high to get the hidden Rodimus. Who the hell hides a Rodimus Prime that well?
    And for 5 years! :sly2:

    With the title of this thread, I feared the worst. Thank goodness that is not so . . .yet. Hopefully TRU will never truly close but with how things are going. . .:(
