Yes they opened early and had no Troopers for sale to general public. There is a car being towed from crashing through the front door of the used clothes store in the same strip mall.

I went to like six different stores and none of them would sell me any. One store even had them prominently on display behind the counter, like ďcheck out this cool thing you canít buy!Ē  ::)

I know itís too early to get mad about, but the employees i spoke to all unanimously insisted this figure would only be available with the game bundle EVER.

If true, that is the shittiest move ever by Hasbro.

If not true, GameStop sucks for perpetuating that BS.

I promise you I will not entertain you in the hallway, and do not attempt to walk with me

I tried a couple stops on Saturday too and the employees all said the same thing, that it was only available as part of the pre-sales bundle.  They didn't sound super convinced, but they checked their POS computers and it didn't appear they had any inventory on the way that said otherwise.
