I keep missing out on all these great sales because Hasbro has nothing out that I want.  It seems like missed opportunity after missed opportunity, since Hasbro insists on supporting current media heavily, overstocking stores with EP1 and Clone Wars.  And yet, all deleted scene figures sell out, as do the Tauntauns and Landspeeders and RFTs and HRTs.  I just don't know why they "have" to come up with these event support themes when it's clear what sells out: OT and EU.

I haven't even seen those newer waves. My stores are still packed with the first waves of ep1 crap. I don't see this changing any time soon.

Just picked up 9 Hoth Troopers for a MN guy at BRUs today. Didn't realize they were having the BOGO (it was unadvertised) or I would have nabbed a Fleet Trooper for myself to get the sale.

Okay my 2 day BRU haul (for other forum members) is:

9x Hoth Rebel Troopers
4x Bastilla Shan
5x Rebel Fleet Troopers
2x Walrusmen

Yeah... BRU sounds a bit cooler though. I never even thought to hit the BRU in Manhattan. I didn't think they'd carry SW figures there. I wonder what they'll restock with?

Cool, thanks... I never heard of them getting in SW figures before.  I'll try and hit one this week in my area to see.

That's definitely something to watch for.  Around me, all of the BRUs and TRUs have merged into one mega store.  Since those stores are carrying product from both the old banners, it's probably easy enough for a BRU to now order some of the most popular TRU stuff, since I'm sure it all goes through the same systems and DCs.

I was surprised, too. I was there with the wife looking for clothes with the kid and wandered upstairs to see if they had action figures... I figured I'd waste a little time so I wouldn't get bored.

Yeah... All of us New Yorkers and Jerseyites(?) have walked past that numerous times and thought: strollers, pacifiers, diapers, wipes, Fisher Price stuff... but never Star Wars figures.

What did they do? Run out of space on the TRU side and setup a endcap in BRU?

Either way, that's a great coupon since WM (and possibly TRU as well) are accepting it. :)

I tried the coupon at WM today, and they refused, saying it was not a sale price quoted that they could match, but just 50% off anything.  Probably bull, but I guess it makes sense.
