    So got the new Toys R Us flyer in the mail (December 2nd 2011 to December 8th 2011). Business as usual, but what I saw in the Star Wars section blew my MIND.

    [​IMG]

    How the hell does Toys R Us mess up and put 2 random 14 year old, 1998 Beast Wars Transmetal 2 TOYS (Hell they ain't even transformed correctly). Needless to say I was laughing my ass off.

    I wonder if I could go in and DEMAND I have these 2 toys in the flyer. MOC TM2 Cheetor NOW!!!! (On special for $7.97 CANADIAN too!)

    Just a wacky find I wanted to share

    *EDIT* I think this was originally suppose to be the Star Wars Transformers Scouts Class toys, but they didn't exactly put Anakin/Obi Wan/Grevious =/

    Holy crap that's funny. XD

    They might actually have some buried in the back that weren't sold 14 years ago, and never sent to... wherever unsold toys go.

    First of all, why do they still have pictures of 14 year old toys? Second, how can you mess up and put those two pictures in there?

    This made me laugh so hard. XD I didn't even know they accidentally do things like that.

    My TRU probably has them on the shelves at $16 a piece. Right next to the animated toys and the goddamned Universe Countdown and Darkwind at $30 each.
