    This might be a little slowpoke, but I spotted the Wave 1 Universe deluxes at the Danbury, CT. TRU. :eek: 

    Woo hoo, go me! :)

    I haven't read the whole thread in its entirety so excuse me if this has been said before. It seems that the Universe figures are what TRU is going to restock the movie figures with, while Animated will of course have it's own chunk of the area. If this is true, I doubt my two close TRU's will have much in the way of Universe, since they're so damn overstocked with movie figures that just aren't selling now.

    On a side note, TRU has a way of overstocking crap. The 25th ANN GI Joe 5 packs were stocked in large quantities and hardly any sold. I actually counted 40 at one point. Of course, it may be that TRU is turning over a new Kay Bee habit of being more expensive then everywhere else, since their movie deluxes are a buck more and the 25th packs were 29.99 instead of 24.99.

    I may have to hit all 3 W*Ms locally tomorrow. Though only one probably will have anything other than movie deluxes.

    Oh cool, they're out somewhere. That means they'll show up in Raleigh in September. Great.

    o_O ...I'm so glad I decided to skip Universe. After all of the money draining that Animated has done to me, I'd have to beat myself senseless for buying another figure right now. Eeesh.

    I don't quite think that's the case; today when I checked the overstock for the TF section, they were flooded with Premiums and Animated Deluxes.
