Commander Gree
« on: August 20, 2017, 04:28:51 PM »

I sent TRU a message with a link to their US listing of Commander Gree. Here is what they sent me back.


We have taken the liberty of forwarding your interest to carry Star Wars Black Series 6 inch Action Figure - Clone Commander Gree on to our Buyers Team at our Corporate Office for their review and consideration. We are constantly striving to provide the best product selection, lowest prices, and state of the art services to our Customers, and your interest gives us an opportunity to do just that!

Sounds like a brush off to me.

Sorry, based on your post, I'm not sure what you were asking them.

Based on their response it seems you were asking TRU Canada if they would carry Gree, since he is a TRU exclusive in the US. Is that the case? Because Gree has been found at TRU in Canada. Or are you pointing out to them how over-priced he is at Canadian TRUs?

I'm curious to see what your actual question was.

He's in Kitchener, but at the previously reported & absurd price point of $39.99. Great looking figure, but you should get 2 of them for that much money.

I was asking TRU if they would have Gree available online to purchase on their .ca site.

I have a feeling this will be available in abundance soon enough, just like the other exclusives. And likely for less $ in due time.

Gree is now at TRU.ca - http://www.toysrus.ca/product/index.jsp?productId=122028066

On a side note, BS clearance figures are still at a reduced price ($16.98), unlike Walmart's formerly BS clearance (up to $29.92).

Gree really is a nice figure.  I got mine for US retail and had it shipped from a friend with a bunch of Royal Guards and some other figures so it worked out to be cheaper than buying it here.  However, if you buy one at US retail and ship it here, it would end up being the same price as buying it here (and that's if you know someone down there that will sell it to you at retail).

Just be really careful with the antenna as you can lose it when just taking the figure out of the tray.

A couple of quick pics.

Thanks for the link, I wonder if my email had anything to do with them posting a link. I will never know.

I was at my local TRU this morning and they had at least 25 on the shelf. Case fresh. I'm sure these will be discounted by Christmas.

He's on sale for $31.97 now, so bring your receipt back to TRU for LPG.

Thanks to Chaingunsofdoom - I got my ten bucks back from TRU today!  No hassle.  Just a return and repurchase.

I tried to buy him on sale at 2 stores on Friday. He scanned at full price and the manager at both cited the wording is "up to" 20% off. Typical TRU advertising scam. They usually pull that with their exclusives, though funny thing is the ad shows the AT-ACT Driver as the example, complete with TRU Exclusive logo.  :speechless-smiley-004:

I checked their website when I got back home, at it was still listed at full price. Though now I see it is listed on sale, so I suppose someone either caught an error or made a bigger fuss than I did, lol.

I was waiting for a price drop. I ordered him and a couple of other things to get the free shipping. Thanks for the tip!
