After work today I stopped into the Rt 17 Paramus NJ TRU looking for the new BBI Weapons Sets (didn't find any though
) and found a pair of DTC Joes hidden behind the shelfbound Sigma Six figures.
I thought they were BBI sets at first as all I saw were small cards stuck behind the Sigma Six stuff, but when I pulled them out...
I took them to the nearest bar-code scanner:
They are in the system. A little pricey for a single figure, but when you factor in shipping from online stores, it kinda evens out.
I called Rasputin (a local collector and friend who I met through JoeCustoms) to see if he wanted them (he didn't) and he theorized that they may have been returned by someone and that I should ask an employee to bring out more from the back. I found an employee and asked if there were any more of them in the back and he said the 2 in my hand were all that were left as the ones put out last night or this morning sold pretty quickly.
Looks like Joe just may be returning to retail at TRU in some capacity.
Also of note, new JLU 3pks and ML Apocalypse Series figures were also present so it's time to start hitting your local TRUs again!
