Wampa Cave / an update from TRU USA
« on: January 24, 2018, 12:29:14 PM »
To Our Valued Customers,

I want to take a moment to thank you for your continued support of Toys"R"Us. As you may be aware, we launched a financial restructuring of our business last fall. As we begin the new year, I want to provide an update on our progress to date, as well as our plans for the future.

Our primary focus is on reimagining our business with you in mind. We want to make it easier for you to shop with us, whether online or in our stores. This past season, we were successful in accomplishing this objective for millions of customers. However, there were also far too many transactions where this wasn't the case due to our operational missteps. As the leader of this company, I want you to know that we can and will address the gaps in the experience that you may have had when shopping this holiday. My team is already hard at work to make the improvements necessary to ensure that we have the products you want, when, where and how you want them.

In addition to convenience, we also recognize that you want fair and competitive prices and it is our job to deliver on that expectation. We recently relaunched our price match program to give you greater confidence when buying from us, and in 2018 we are taking additional steps to ensure that we provide greater overall value to you and your family. We will do this through compelling promotions and by providing an improved loyalty program and a more personalized way of communicating with you in email, online and social media.

The reinvention of our brands requires that we make tough decisions about our priorities and focus. To that end and following a top-to-bottom assessment of our business, we have decided to close a number of our U.S. stores. We also intend to convert a number of locations into co-branded Toys"R"Us and Babies"R"Us stores. The actions we are taking are necessary to give us the best chance to emerge from our bankruptcy proceedings as a more viable and competitive company that will provide the level of service and experience you should expect from a market leader.

We estimate store closing sales to begin in early February with the majority of locations closing in mid-April 2018. During this time, we welcome you to take full advantage of the deep discounts and deals available.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

We are open for business and ready to serve you. We will continue to operate stores in all major markets across the U.S. and around the world. And as always, you can also continue to shop online at and

We are honoring customer programs. Our customer, registry, credit, warranty and loyalty programs will continue as normal. We will continue to sell and accept gift cards as always.

While our store roster may be getting smaller, what is not changing is our desire or commitment to serving you. For the past 70 years, we have worked hard to earn your business and look forward to being champions of play and a best friend to parents everywhere for decades to come.

Thank you for your support and for choosing to shop with us.

Anyone thinking of getting this?

It would be awesome to do with my kids down the road (a few years) when they're older.

And although really, really expensive...I am being told the price is reasonable by some.

Wampa Cave / I need your help

Hi guys,

As some of you know, I am a part-time dealer. I do shows in the greater Toronto area.

On Dec.5 I did a show and while unloading my stuff, someone (had to be another dealer) stole one box from me. It contained the following:

about ten 6-inch captain phasma
about five 6-inch stormtrooper (new one)
2 disney die cast stormtrooper
2 disney die cast kylo ren

All of the above were purchased from the US so they will have US packaging (not sure if the canadian ones are bilingual).

Not to "give it away" but there is a way I can tell if the product is mine. So, if you happen to see someone unloading a bunch of the above on kijiji/craigslist/ebay, or a local show, please pm me. I highly doubt I will get these back, but you never know.

Not the end of the world but it sucks.

Thanks for hearing me out.


(ps mods, hope it's ok to post this. If not, please delete)

Wampa Cave / time for another diorama contest?
« on: May 12, 2015, 04:30:19 AM »
mods, I thought I would post this here first to garner more attention, but feel free to move it as you see fit.

In the spirit of the new movie, I thought it might be time for another contest (older members will remember the one I did a few years ago and the jaw-drooping creations everyone did).

My thinking is to have a bunch of cool prizes (including a gentle giant statue, a Sideshow 1/6 figure, exclusive / hard to find figures, and more) and have a prize awarded to everyone who participates (I only ask that you pay the shipping cost).

This time I am thinking every snowtrooper member will cast a vote for their favourites.

I would like at least 10 people to participate, but obviously the more the merrier.
