I went on a monster toy run tonight...  BAREN pegs at the TRU's I hit.  Not one basic figure to be found, and really not much anything else to be found.  Most vehicles of any size are gone (all the exclusives before the holidays sold out before the holidays though anyway).  The titanium figures were here and there...  I did spot tins at the last one I hit and got a couple.  Not much left though at the TRU's around Pittsburgh.  They're bone dry and ready for major restocking to go on.

TRU's have been pretty bone dry around here as well.  This whole BOGO deal seems like a way to get TSC stock out of the way in time for the 30AC line more than anything else.

Yeah they did a BOGO last year before TSC if I recall...  We had a good  many figures, and TRU was one of the only stores to stock many "Final 22" figures at any one time.  They're seriously empty now though, at least the two I hit in my area...  I'd say they're a good gauge for the local TRU scene though, and that's the emptiest I've seen the SW pegs at TRU ever...  They could get a major deluge of new stuff and still just look "normal" at this point.

I managed to nab 3 Sandtroopers (added a Green EII clone to get to an even number) and managed to also buy a pair of the collector's tin sets (ROTJ and ANH).

Since I refused to pay $25 or $30 for the one figure in each set that I needed, this was perfect.

I managed to get the EII clone on ebay for $12, the cantina pack for $13, these two for $15 each, and got the hoth contents from Paul... so, I'm only about $43 or so in and I'm 5/7ths done with only the EIII Driver and the EI droid to go.

Not too bad.  :D


I went into a second TRU this morning and found 1 Comic pack... I've been refusing to spend full price (out of principal) on these too but would have snagged them at Buy-one-get-one.  Unfortunately they only had one pack.

Well, I only had the chance to go to one TRU this week-end and it was the one with consistently the WORST stock (and yet, I have had one or two amazing "gold mine" experiences there, so I keep going back despite the overwhelming failure ratio.)

As expected, they had nothing.  But this time, it was literally nothing.  Zilch.  Not a single figure, tin set, battle pack, vehicle...not even the old, reliable peg warmers....

Not to be completely empty-handed, though, I did pick up two "spring action" lightsabers, which I had been considering buying for some time.  Now I have an extra....not a bad deal.

I am so behind the 8-ball. For some reason I thought the sale was week long, so I missed out on the Bantha pre-order. :P The sale did a great job of clearing out most of the SW product at my TRU's though.

I expected nothing, by the time I was able to get to a TRU yesterday it was 6:00pm and yet a TRU where I know collectors are literally sitting in front of the store and run to the SW and Hot Wheels sections at opening I was still able to score a S. Tiin J. Fighter and a White TIE  ;D I could not have been happier.  It's the first time I'd seen either ship and to score them like that was awesome.

I went to TRU yesterday over lunch and all I found were a TON of empty pegs and a store full of whiny kids (Thanks Presidents Day  ::)).

About all they had were some tins (Ep 4,5,6), a few vehicles (2x Vader TIE, 1x Obi-Wan JSF), and a bunch of mini-unleashed junk.  Ah well, at least I tried to find a deal...  :-\

Does this sale mean that TRU is going to load up on 30thAC stuff shortly?

I think so...

I believe last year they did something similar prior to TSC's release to unload extra ROTS stock.  As I recall they had more, but not quite interesting stuff available around me from ROTS.

I really didn't get to load up on much stuff for the sale, but did finally cave in and get 4 of the 5th fleet security clones, and two more Moffs.

Got to the store too late to get anything good (Battle Droid 2pack and an Emperor - meh), but I did order Buy one Get one on the TRU Mega-sized TIE Fighters.  Gonna get reamed when that massive box shows up at the house...

I was seriously considering picking up two more Ties as well, but I went the Bantha route instead.  One for me, the other for another local.  My order came to $56 - not a bad deal but now I'm thinking I should have gotten the Ties instead.  I had no idea their website still had them in stock, but I'm not going anywhere near that $45 price point anytime soon :-\
