How are these packaged? Four of each in a case or two of each in a case?

There were four of each  at the TRU where I found them this morning, so I either came across 1 case or 2....

Two of each per case, from what I've seen evidence of.

Yeah there was 1 case sitting on the floor today at TRU with 2 of each in it.

Is it a crime to show up at a TRU and slice a pound of fat/skin off of our abdomens and plop it down on the counter when we're paying for our star wars toys?  Disturbing the peace maybe?  It's gotta be illegal. 

I have a few police officer friends I'll run it by them and report back.

BTW, $39.99, which I reported on our front page...  DarthChuckMC reported on twitter these were $45 down in Orlando I believe, and that hopefully was just down there...  Is TRU allowed to scalp?  ???

One can hope these don't go up in price.

I saw stuff like this in my TRU except worse (Marvel Legends marked up to $22.99 from $15.99) and was like WTF?

A manager at the TRU closest to me explained that there are now a bunch of TRU "test stores" around the country.  Select TRU stores that jack up the price on certain items.  Then they track sales.  If the sales are equivalent to other areas, this is viewed as free money and the price hike goes nationwide.

My TRU is one such test store.  And I am so lucky to be paying more.

My store is currently gouging like mad on Marvel but Star Wars vintage is $9.99, they were $11.99 for a while but the old stale TPM **** just sat there for like 4 months.

  Just crazy when you think about it.  Sometimes it is a wave here or there, but this year - at least so far - has been nothing since Feb.

Yup.  Walmart and Target especially for me.  TRU got a trickle of the shocktrooper/sandtrooper/blue lieutenant clone wave last week.  And that's it.

The can't cut list never makes any sense to me.  It floats week to week.  Sometimes my studs are on it, other weeks they aren't.  It's a pain in the parts, and in the past the commissioner has always granted can't cut list players to be dropped if the owner requested.  Most often those events were due to severe injury to the player.

In any event, feel free to cut "can't cut list" players.  I'm fine with it.  And it's always been that way from what I recall.

I've been trying to sit football out for a couple years and this will likely be the year I finally do it.  I have too many hobbies going to put any meaningful effort into football this Fall.  I will probably play basketball this Fall with you guys though because I'm going for the 3peat in my dental school friends league and I can't sit that one out.  If I'm doing all the work for one league might as well do JD basketball also, doesn't take any extra time.  Anyhow have fun with football, I hope whoever has the most Giants wins!

Perfect trade with Force Guy, item as described and shipped really fast.  Proof that cats and dogs can bond over little plastic space men.

Trade with FG with confidence!  A+

Found King Laufey and King Loki x 2 at TJ Maxx today.

Amazing really, $5.99 each.  They go for a grip on eBay.  Cheap thrill.

I found Darth Malgus and Starkiller at TRU a few days ago.  They're for trade.

I'm looking for Imperial Navy Commanders. blue clone lieutenants and red shocktroopers.

PM me with good news.

These are all over now.  I picked up the four turtles, which is enough for me, but they're really great little figures.  I love the designs on the turtles.  Krang and the Foot Soldier are okay.  Splinter, Shredder, and April...not so much.

But the updates to the main four are pretty sweet.

Sprry what's the scale on these?

Scott's offensive night was probably was one of the top 5 offensive showings I've seen since I started playing with you guys in 2004.

I hit Wal-Marts, Targets, TRU pretty much 5 days a week and haven't seen a single Skrull... doesn't look like anything past the first two waves has shipped to the STL area one bit yet.

They shapeshift.  So.

Maybe now people will buy that GotG Battle Pack that's been clogging up my Target's shelves for a couple of months.

   E...

Those shelf-warming battle packs are probably the reason for the movie.

That trade that just went through was terrible.  You guys shouldn't have let that one slide.  And the 1st place team who is ahead by 10 points is the beneficiary, to make it worse.
