Ya, they went quick last week online as well. I'm convinced people are buy them for $10 from TRU and then returning them to Walmart for a $30 store credit. Just my thoughts :P

Post by: Darth Cujo on February 01, 2017, 09:59:33 AM
I dunno. Last time I tried to return a SW figure at Walmart without a receipt (I lost mine) they wouldn't even give me store credit. They wouldn't take any toys that you can get elsewhere without a receipt. Not sure if this varies by store/manager but this was my recent experience.

Besides the flametrooper was $5 at Walmart at one point. So in theory they would only give you $5 credit as that should be the no-receipt price.

Well, after posting earlier this morning I did have some returns both to Walmart and to TRU.  I returned a couple straight forward receipt returns to Walmart and then said I had one purchase that I could not find the receipt for. They said no problem but only a store credit would be given. I returned 4 flamers that ( like DarthCujo said) I bought from Wally at $5 back in Novemberish. I received a credit of $136, so now I can buy some free at-at drivers from Walmart.ca :P
Plus I received a free 5po ackbar because the Walmart ladies in the toy area were resetting all the pegs and put all the TFA 5po figures($9.98each) on a end cap with a $7.98 price tag banner. I challenged the price with the bar code scanner act , and presto!......works every time  :winking0071:
Plus at TRU, I returned two hover tank drivers and received $19.98 each in return and now have the other two at home that were the ( 1/2 off of the BOGO 1/2 off) $9.98 each figures!
And stumbled on a black series Death Star finally.
Today was a good day in Star Wars Collecting Land...lol

Hey jjreason. ...I like the idea of this thread you started for Walmart,  Amazon , and ToysRUS.  Unfortunately, I can still see the posts for these 3 threads under the 'Recent' section above right...and I don't have to be logged in to see the postings. Scalpers would still be able to read the post if one of these threads is in the 'Recent' section.  Are we to redirect snowtroopers to the 'provincial forums' only in these threads..but not actually mention the deals here in this thread that we find?

For example: Hey guys check out the hard to find item I just found. I've posted under the Ontario provincial forum ...and they are on clearance. (this is an example on what I was expecting from these threads.)
Title: Re: ToysRUs.ca Updates
Post by: jjreason on February 01, 2017, 09:52:21 PM
That's interesting - this is in the "outer rim" with the provincials, so I expected the same "permissions" to be in place for the entire area. I'll need to have a look & see if I can adjust it to match the others.  :speechless-smiley-004:

 ya, my one walmart is sticklers about no receipt returns. they let me do it the one time without a receipt and told me i couldnt do that next time. then at the end of the convo the girl repeated it again to me....f off! haha. but the other walmarts i go to never say a word about it and ive returned things for store credit if my receipt is expired and the fig is still hanging around the pegs so i know it will ring up .
 
 just try another walmart if you can. sometimes i realize i dont want things after some months and the store credit works fine for me. good luck!

At-act down to $187.99

Don't forget thought that the U-Wing is on Clearance at Superstore for $34.xx right now too though.
Title: Re: ToysRUs.ca Updates
Post by: DarthDerek on February 09, 2017, 06:26:12 PM
It's only $45 at my local superstore ☹️
Title: Re: ToysRUs.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Woo on February 09, 2017, 07:31:32 PM
That sucks.  In my area, they are all $34.xx, even if the shelf tag still says $79.99.
Title: Re: ToysRUs.ca Updates
Post by: bob on February 09, 2017, 10:36:24 PM
 i picked a u-wing up at my Superstore about 2 weeks ago for 34. they only had 4 or 5 to begin with and as far as i  saw only one person bought one at that price or for 52 when they had a sale eariler for that price.

 they do make these things cheap though. the wings flap around. theres no weathering (which i intend to add) and the engine canon things are a little too big and it makes it look a little funny. other then that i like it but their asking price at 70 is way off. no wonder barely anyone buys it at that price, for some people thats before even seeing how budget the wings are. Hasbro lay off the greed and make better quality things again! please!

 good luck finding one if you want it. its worth getting at 39 i'd say..and you even get a figure! :p
Title: Re: ToysRUs.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Woo on February 10, 2017, 12:20:14 PM
Honestly, I got mine for free basically and I still didn't end up keeping it.  The wings are so cheap and right out of the box, one side was drooping already.  Thought it was mine and opened a second one and exact same thing on the same wing.  If they had made a two seater with a rear sliding door for cargo, I would have lived with the wing issue and actually would have loved it.  Unfortunately, they designed it for 5POA figure.  If they designed it for SA figures, they would have had enough room to make it a 2-seater side by side like in the movie.
Title: Re: ToysRUs.ca Updates
Post by: DarthDerek on February 10, 2017, 06:19:28 PM
Thanx DarthWoo, and Bob. I went to my local SuperStore today and they finally marked it down from $44 to $34 so I pulled the trigger. Plus they had black series 3.75 (tie pilot card) figs on sale for $9.9- , but they rang up for $7.9-. :P
Title: Re: ToysRUs.ca Updates
Post by: bob on February 11, 2017, 07:49:35 AM

 np. i mentioned the Superstore thing shortly after i got it in a diff area of the site. guess you missed it.

 its not bad but ya, the wings are so cheap its pretty pathetic really. not even close to make this thing 70. but it does look cool. my wings arent bent yet but they flap around which is lame.
Title: Re: ToysRUs.ca Updates
Post by: DarthDerek on February 11, 2017, 09:12:31 AM
Oh yeah, I saw your post Bob(cat?). I have been watching my superstore price on Uwings ever since DW mentioned it, and then when you mentioned it, I went the next day because I figured the discount has finally made it here in Ontario. But no, it took another two-three weeks before my store lowered it. Anyways, I'm happy all around. I will open it soon, and then we can discuss the poor quality wings...lol :P
Title: Re: ToysRUs.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Woo on February 11, 2017, 11:06:46 AM
It's not that the wings are bent but one side droops more than the other side right out of the box. Think it was a design thing cause both that I had were like that and the one I sold to the guy who reviewed it on Jedidefender was like that too.

thats good you saw it then! i noticed the plan-o-gram sheets (with SW product listed on it) at walmart a week ago. Everyones is probably doing that give or take around this time. Most things will prob come out when Rogue One dvd/bluray is released like it was last year for TFA. Im not expecting too much till that hits the shelves! thats the new thing it seems. will see i guess. 

 ya! get ready for wings that flap around! :P its a cool ship but it needs some weathering and better wings. other then that it looks cool, i think anyway.

 yep! you got it. my names Bob. bobcat. my friend started adding the cat thing forever ago so it kinda stuck. plus i have a cat so its cool :)

But I needed 6 of them!

Seriously though, if the AT-ACT was $399 on Dec.23 and down to $250 on Feb.23, I'm wondering if the Vader/Display Stand ($75 on April 1) will be around $47 by early June. This is $40 at Target in USD today so it should only be around $55 CAD here, right now. TRU is once again trying to see who'll bite.  It does make the % savings in the flyer look more impressive though later on.

Ordered a couple of sets of the Black Series  6-inch Jaina Solo, Snoke and Rose from toysrus.ca back on December 10th when they were on sale for $19.97 each.....they haven't shipped out yet.  I received an email on December 15th from Toys R US that their web orders are backlogged and they promise that they will ship them to me by December 23rd.  Has anyone else not received their order yet.... or have received a delay in shipping notification email like I mentioned above?

I ordered Rose and 2 Praetorian Guards and they have shipped already.  Got the notices on Friday.  I missed Jaina sadly.

My Rey on Crait arrived, and just like all the ones I saw in the store, the tape was cut open and re-sealed with a new one.

Yeah, it's a bit odd.  They also removed the AT-ACT and a good number of Forces of Destiny figures.
Title: Re: ToysRUs.ca Updates
Post by: Eradicator on December 19, 2017, 12:47:21 PM
All their good stuff was removed from the site. I live way too far from a TRU unfortunately. I know they had a bunch of things in the store I was looking at buying but alas I can't get there to buy anything. Maybe this is one reason why they are in bankruptcy mode.

Funny, I got my Rey on Crait on Monday.  I got the shipping notice on Friday, exactly on the day the website said it would ship.  I find it funny though that even the one I got online had the tape cut and re-taped.  All the ones in store were like that too.

While we are talking about that Force Link bracelet, I took apart my Rey to make a super articulated one. 

For those wondering, the chip for the sound is in the torso.  This is how it looks like.
