Well, I figured there would be some interesting stories from today, and I have another to add.
I got to my local TRU about 10 minutes before opening, and there was one guy waiting out front who I had seen earlier this week haunting the SW aisle. Uh-oh. I already knew from yesterday that they only had 1 case to put out, so I figured I might be in for a fight.
I figured I would try the friendly, proactive approach so I chatted him up while we were waiting for the doors to open. Turns out he was mainly looking for Shaak-Ti and I let him know I wanted K'Kruhk so we worked it all out amicably.
So anyway, the doors finally open and we rush in expectantly only to find: NO ENDCAP, and NO WAVE 13 on the pegs. WTF?!?! So I grabbed the nearest store drone and asked if he could check in the back for us.
Now this is where it gets weird. Dude comes back with a full, unopened case. We crack it open and the other guys snags his Shaak-Ti and I snagged my K'Kruhk. As we continue pulling them out though, he notes there is no Jacen, only a Jaina. Hmm, I also notice there is no Spacetrooper. WTF?
They had plenty of room to include the sh*tty repack figures, but they had to leave out Jacen and the Spacetrooper? What kind of asinine case assortment is that? Has anyone else noticed this? What's even the point of shipping half a wave?
I'm thinking of heading across town to check the other location, but this really struck me as odd.
At any rate, I got the one figure I really wanted, so I am happy. I kinda wanted the Dark Trooper Phase 2 also, but the other guy seemed to have an interest too, so I deferred to him in the interest of karma. Those price deals are insane though...I should have bought the rest just as an investment.
