    Went to my local Toys R Us with the Pics from other people getting Fortress Maximus from Ross for 54.99 and they let me price match! =D Thought it would be worth sharing if anyone else wanted to give it a shot. Happy Hunting! unnamed.jpg

    We dont have any Ross locations anywhere close to me is maybe why they did it. Its worth a shot atleast. Like I said just showed them the pics from ppl finding Fort Max at Ross with the price sticker and the Manager marked it down. They didnt question or anything. Maybe I did get lucky but it never hurts to ask.

    OP getting reprimanded for sharing this with collectors is deplorable.
    This forum is brutal. It's a wonder why decent people even bother to come here

    I don't think anyone reprimanded the OP, they did however point out that YMMV depending on who you deal with at TRU given they don't typically price match discount stores as mentioned.

    As to the OP, nice score.

    you want reprimanding? i had to google three words because of you! reprimand led to rebuke!!!!!!!

    unless your being sarcastic......which could also be a possibility......either way, i let him slide.

    its actually cool that you got it at that price sam mercer. i might try it as well because my area lacks a ross as well......could you show me the exact pictures you used to get the price cut?

    So this--->That is extremely YMMV...TRU does not price match discount stores and club stores. OP just got lucky!!

    And this---clickbait at its mightiest.......

    edit: oh, he's new here! i'll let you slide this time! welcome to the boards!

    ...aren't a series of rebukes?

    The volume of them doesn't change the tone. I call it how I see it. A retort is a retort. The guy was just trying to help out fellow collectors.

    Nobody can tell someone how comments look. They can only reiterate what they intended to imply.

    Because getting that deal is less probable than find him at Ross right now?

    And because Internet.

    May be more likely though if you show the toys r us receipt in this thread, no idea for sure but I figure toys r us may be more likely to price match themselves

    i'm a bit sad you weren't sarcastic....
    at first i definitely was upset at it but i let him slide. i didn't mean for it to be read as mean post-edit, so i edited the post since i don't like to remove entire posts unless its in my sales thread to make room, or if i go on a deletion binge for some reason. i also don't like implying stuff, so i'm sorry that it came off that way.

    also, i had to google rebuttal as well.....you know too many words for me.

    well, back on topic......
    i agree! that would make it so much easier!!!!
