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.

Post by: DarthDerek on February 01, 2017, 05:29:17 PM
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!

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.

Title: Re: ToysRUs.ca Updates

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.

Title: TRU Lego sale and gift cards.
Post by: DarthDerek on January 09, 2018, 07:42:35 PM
Just FYI Lego troopers.
I received a Lego $10 off gift card when I purchased over $100 of Lego during Christmas. The card is good for the month of January at TRU.
Now the card says get $10 off any regular priced Lego set priced $10 or more, and excludes sale prices..... However, I tried the card when purchasing a 20% off Star Wars set and I did indeed get the $10 off of the sale price. So you should too!
TRUs Lego sale ends this week.
This is just a FYI if you have any of these cards.

I wish I waited on the Rey and Ackbar sets.  Luckily though, I did get them on sale, just not as good as the clearance price.

Lots of stuff, mostly not available to order. Pricing is interesting, though. I want lots of this stuff, but those prices are steep

e.g.

- Falcon $139.99: http://www.toysrus.ca/product/index.jsp?productId=141789086
- Dewback $99.99: http://www.toysrus.ca/product/index.jsp?productId=141789096

Did you scan it?  Wondering if it's just a case of it being put in the wrong place as the Kylo Ren Centerpiece is $89.99.  Just wondering if the product placement was wrong.

That could be it.  The Kylo statue was just above it and all I saw was a big sign for $89.99 between them.

So, it looks like most or all of the Quebec Toys R Us locations were only sent Nerf blasters by Hasbro. No figures at all.  :speechless-smiley-004:
When I asked an employee when they might get them, he said hopefully in next week's shipment.

The Dewback shelf price tag was 99.99$ at my TRU this morning, but the same product was 89.99$ at EB Games. So I suspect this is truly a mistake and it should be 89.99$ at TRU.

 maybe its a mistake, but TRU is notorious for charging more for certain things. i wouldnt be surprised if some stores leave it at 99.99 and then offer their big sale which brings it closer to normal! :/

http://t.toysrus.ca/product/index.jsp?productId=141789536

Idea: buy some of these to lock in the price, and over the next year or so when you find new TVC figures that you want at a TRU store, buy it at whatever price and return this FO Stormie in its place. TRU has all the same SCU/ Product code # for all TVC figs.
This is nothing new to most of you, I just thought I mention.  :P

I will definitely get one at full retail to support TRU and Hasbro’s efforts so they keep selling/making it and then get more once they inevitably drop and go on clearance. We are lucky we still have TRU here so support them when you can otherwise we may not have them much longer.

You can always just pick some additional item that you can pick up in store and it'll still be free shipping. You just need a total of $50 on your order and get free shipping, even if only $5 of that order is shipped and the other $45 was in store pickup. You can return the in store thing right when you pick it up saying it wasn't what you thought it was. The pick up and returns are at the same location anyways.

Interesting thing today,
I ordered 5 Moloch figures from TRU.ca and they arrived today. I opened the box to check out this figure, and I noticed two of the five figures were totally missing Molochs "Long Staff" accessory!  I looked for tampering of the card and blister but found nothing.
If you ordered from TRU.ca, check your figs before they run out online.
On the plus side, it's a nice hefty figure!
OldManBen,if your reading, yours is fine. :P

I was able to pick up a Phasma yesterday. The store had them behind the counter. This said that on the first day they put them out two were stolen and four were hidden by someone, which they found. This is sad to see. Interestingly it looks like most stores are receiving around 8 figures but in their computer it shows that at the warehouse there around 1400 of them. They staff member I was talking to didn't know if the ones on the warehouse were to be sent out to stores later or to be posted for sale online.

When I try to order the Solo four-pack on line, TRU wants $10 to deliver to me (which I don’t want to pay).  They do offer free pick up in stores, but when I try to order with this option they say that no stores within 50 km has this item in stock.
What baffles me is that I thought they would send out the item from their warehouse to the store nearest me for easy pick up.  Otherwise, what’s the point.  If I know a local store has it, then I would just go to that store and buy it.  Why would I bother to order it on linear just doesn’t make sense to me.

If this was a hard to find item, or a great sale online, Then I would say order two to get the free shipping and return the one at your nearest TRU when you get around to it.
But in this case , by the time you get your item shipped and get to the store to return one, your store will probably be loaded with them anyways. In my opinion.  But , you never know.  :P

I am willing to wait until they show up in store.  If it’s the same as all the previous 4-packs it will be sitting around and will eventually go on sale.

There flooded in the west coast.

The pick up in store is basically getting the store to hold it for you. However, it's good cause I needed to get stuff for my daughter. The item was online only and it was on sale. Unfortunately, shipping made it not worth it. I ended up adding a lego set for her to pick up in store to make the total more than $49 so I got free shipping cause the total including store pickup was over $49. So if there was something you needed mailed and there was something else you can pick up in store, you can do that to get free shipping too.

Well twice in the last three days I've submitted orders for Veers to pick up in store. Both of which have been cancelled when they went to fulfill the orders.

This isn't the first time this has happened to me. They really need to work on their inventory tracking system. Very frustrating.

Guys, if your still looking for veers, Whitby TRU has five left as of 9:30am.  So this is their second time around with him, so I think like phasma and mimban, he will be readily available.
DarthCujo, I picked up one extra just in case you don't find him and wanted two. One in at-At gear and one as officer.

I found ONE at my local TRU after calling in...  I'd asked them to put two aside to help out a fellow trooper but when I got there only one was at the counter.... the empty shipping box was up front, apparently the leftover after someone bought the rest.

Guys I went to two TRUS TODAY.
PS -Whitby has three Solo 5poa sets.

Ok I know it's late but I checked the Ontario store for Zuckess and according to TRU computer , only Hamilton, Burlington, and Barrie got them so far. So everywhere else still has to receive them.

Second, I was able to get a Zuckess rain check for 3x $23.97 and it's good for six months. So if you can, at least lock the sale price in before the sale is over.

Third, check to see if your store still has last weeks TVC figures sale price of $16.17 on the peg tags.
With TRU running multiple Star Wars sales it's very possible.
Because I noticed my store did and they scanner price checked at regular $17.99.
No No No
I brought four Hoth rebels and one Snoke to purchase, then asked the cashier " Does TRU still take part in the" Barcode Scanner Standards and Practices Act" ?
She replied yes but she was not very familiar with it.
Long story short, got all 5 figures for $7.99 each. $10 off each.  Which is more then they actually had to do.
Usually it's $10 off the first item and any multiples are honored at the lower price.
Just a FYI. And give it a try if you can. :P

I know right?  I have no idea why TRU has/or had Phasma at $39.99,  Mimban at $37.99, and Veers and Zuckuss at $29.99?  Makes no sense to me but, I'm glad some were at the $29 level. :P

I put in an order for 4-lom a couple months ago. Still haven't received it. I've gotten two emails in the meantime telling me I can cancel my order at any time but they are still trying to fulfill it.

At this point I'm not holding my breath on this one. But it doesn't hurt to put an order in.

That's what happened with the VC Assault Tank Drivers I ordered.  I ordered in August (or maybe late July) from Amazon and I kept getting updates that I can cancel if I don't want to wait, then suddenly, I got an email that it was shipped.

So true. It’s also cuz the limit on figs at TRU is useless. My buddy called me fuming last night because he just went to go pick up his online order of Zuckuss figs from the store and the guy in front of him ordered 2 orders so like probably 10 of them. The scalper was even asking to change out a damaged box too. Anyway my buddy ordered 2 cuz he keeps one MOC but 1 was cancelled because they were out of stock but yet the guy in front of him got like 10 minty fresh ones and my buddy got stuck with the last damaged one that the scalper traded in. That’s the reason collecting has becomes such a pain in the ass nowadays. I told my buddy to relax cuz there will be more coming and he said that’s exactly what the scalper told him lol. First world problems for sure but still gotta hate them scalpers.

TRU is just weird. Why would they have Web pages for 4 of the 6 retro figures? Are they not packed evenly per case?

I was in a store over the weekend in the Toronto area, and spoke to a manager and he said his computer is only showing 300 units for this Scu# for all of Canada.
I read about two weeks ago that the count was around 700-800 so I guess they are already almost out stock.

I'm sure we will see all of these come the fall, I think Tru, like Target, just got the initial exclusivity for Fathersday.

My TVC Hans showed up in an oversized box with no packing material whatsoever. The tape across the top of the box was not affixed to the side, meaning I could have literally reach into the gap & pulled the figures out one by one without actually opening the box. All that being said, they didn't get too dinged up - just by pure luck.

Toys R Us Canada has updated their return policy. As of August 01st, 2019, they are only allowing returns up to 30 days now, and you need to have the original receipt.  They will no longer issue store credit without a receipt.

I honestly think this is a good business decision.  This will insure that fraudulent people won't buy cheap from one store and return it to Toys R Us for a higher store credit amount.  I want Toys R Us to stay in Canada for a long time. Hold on to receipts and/or get a gift receipt as well.  They will still allow for a price adjustment for those 30 days.
Title: Re: ToysRUs.ca Updates
Post by: jjreason on August 08, 2019, 11:47:17 PM
I agree, they were getting abused I'm sure. Hopefully this helps them stay in the black up here. Thanks for providing us with the info as I'm sure some folks will be feverishly checking receipt dates upon reading it.  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

They will still allow for a price adjustment for those 30 days.

The lowest price guarantee/price match is now 14 days based on the sign that I read off at a TRU store this past weekend. From 45 days down to 14 days... that's not good.
Title: Re: ToysRUs.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Cujo on August 09, 2019, 09:31:51 AM
Up to a couple years ago I virtually never paid full price for anything that came to regular retail. I took advantage of toys r us liberal return policies. Totally above board but I used it and used it well.

However with the lack and total inconsistency  of product hitting retail shelves I have shifted my expectations. I no longer expect to pay sale price and only consider it a bonus if I do get something on sale. I've resigned myself to paying mostly retail price for the stuff I want. So this change won't cost me too much in the long run.

One thing I have always found annoying is that the adjustment time frame is not the same as the return time frame. Someone can just go in and rebuy something on sale and walk out and walk back in and return the item on the old receipt. More work for everyone.  The only time it matters is when something is completely sold out. I suppose that happens often enough that it's worth their while to have 2 different time frames.  But it's annoying. And now that the return window is shorter why not just make them the same?

This is all very interesting!
I have talked to my local Tru employees and managers and they are well aware of the Scalpers out there, that constantly return things on the last days of their receipt just because they couldn’t resell it. But then buy it again to start the process all over again.
After reading here the news, I glanced at their return policy online.  It looks like I/we all have a reason to sign up for their TRU CLUB CARD.  BECAUSE if you purchase at flash the card you will have up tp 90 days to return. But this will allow them to track your history. :P

Here is a copy and paste from their website :
What is the Toys"R"Us/Babies"R"Us return label?
Returns or Exchanges will be given within 30 days of the purchase date with the original receipt, except as stated below.
 
RClub Members are eligible for an extended Policy and may Return or Exchange within 90 days of the purchase date with the original receipt and membership card, except as stated below.
 
For a Return or Exchange, all products must be unused, in original packaging, in resalable condition and with the original receipt.
 
We do not accept Returns or Exchanges without the original receipt.
 
No returns or exchanges on Toys R Us Canada or Babies R Us Canada gift cards, other gift cards, game cards or digital downloads.

Up to a couple years ago I virtually never paid full price for anything that came to regular retail. I took advantage of toys r us liberal return policies. Totally above board but I used it and used it well.

However with the lack and total inconsistency  of product hitting retail shelves I have shifted my expectations. I no longer expect to pay sale price and only consider it a bonus if I do get something on sale. I've resigned myself to paying mostly retail price for the stuff I want. So this change won't cost me too much in the long run.

One thing I have always found annoying is that the adjustment time frame is not the same as the return time frame. Someone can just go in and rebuy something on sale and walk out and walk back in and return the item on the old receipt. More work for everyone.  The only time it matters is when something is completely sold out. I suppose that happens often enough that it's worth their while to have 2 different time frames.  But it's annoying. And now that the return window is shorter why not just make them the same?

100%. The same as you DarthCujo... 100%

I found out this week TRU won't price match an item if the "sale price" is in their system as "clearance". 6" Storm Luke is $19.98 as clearance price. So was Storm Han TVC at $9.98, also clearance. To get price reduction on TRU online purchase I made 2 weeks ago, I had to buy instore then return online ones.

They are most likely getting the Yavin Luke 6" too due to them showing it in their most recent email:

Just so you know, I could place an order for the "Cave of Evil" 3-pack today at TRU.ca. It worked. Could complete the transaction.

But maybe they will tell me later the item was not really in stock and that they need to cancel my order. Let's just say I'm not holding my breath.  :)

I gave up and just bought the Cave of Evil in the store.

Still waiting for customer service to gjve me back my $10 code cause they cancelled my IG-11 using that code.

I fjnd they are so slow at responding now compared to before.  Maybe its cause they're getting way more complaints now.

One of the WM stores nearby has received at least 6 cases of the first wave and most are still warming the pegs after 2 weeks. The other store nearby only one box. Distribution is still an ongoing nightmare.

It's more than obvious that no one wants these. They are repacks and they are way to expensive. Figures with barely no accessories going for 30$ is way too much for many people. Star Wars is pretty much dead at retail and seeing all the Black Series figures always warming the pegs, much more than any TVC wave has done so far, is catastrophic. Despite all the bulls**t Hasbro is trying to pull on us, making us believe the 6'' line is successful and trying to force us to consider this as the "collectors" avenue, Black Series has been jamming the pegs everywhere I see them. They are the retail stores' nightmare, much worse than TPM TVC wave back in 2012. Even going at half the price, they still jam the pegs. Tehy are big, likeliness is deficient, lack the accessories... what's to love about these? Anyway... I feel SW is pretty much dead and seeing those BS clogging the pegs is not helping at all...

I think that's a pretty isolated situation - the vintage carded 6" figures are flying here in Ontario, I saw my first ones just today after about 20 store visits. I have no doubt they'll be gone within 48hrs.

They are repacks, but the allure of the over-sized cards is great. I am purchasing some (more than I should be) with a view towards trying to sell my previously owned versions to recoup some of the money. We'll see how that goes.  :mad0218:

I have both in front of me & I'm not sure I'd call the new Luke head "an improvement" per se. It's different & I want to keep the vintage carded version so it's an easy choice that way.... but based on face alone I don't see the big deal.

Lego Bespin Duel set 75294 is now available at tru online only:

https://www.toysrus.ca/en/LEGO-Star-Wars-Bespin-Duel-75294---R-Exclusive/746C09CA.html

This was going to be a Celebration Exclusive set. Grab it now if you want it, it won't be restocked. They're also selling it through the lego online store and target.com.

Backordered on the lego site but still available on TRU site.

And according to their email TRU only has it from the 27th to the 30th. Seems odd to me. What do they do with leftovers if they don't sell out? And if they do sell out why not just say limited quantities? Why tie an end date to it?

Anyway, it's still available now.

I see the status of Captain Cardinal is now changed to "pickup only". This is the only one that has changed. Since the nearest store is a four hour drive for me, unfortunately, a pick-up isn't a good option.

Found the 40th Anniversary ESB Rebel Trooper and Luke Snowspeeder Pilot at my local TRU today.
I just noticed these go on sale today at 20% Off so I am taking my receipt in for a price adjustment.

I also saw the earlier wave of 40th figures at my local Walmart.  It looks like a few cases of Vader, Chewbacca, Snowtrooper and Dagobah Luke.  No Boba Fett.

The one thing I never saw, either online or in store, is that Millennium Falcon. I have the feeling it could not even make it out here, or at least in sufficient quantities to get one per store. It’s already very scarce at Target stores in the US, the demand is quite high, I have the (bad) feeling the ships may have been rerouted to US stores...

But my feelings often play tricks in my mind... more than once I admit... so we’ll see. 😝

I ordered Hondo and Mountain Trooper online.  My Hondo arrived today.  The funny thing is that it was shipped from the only store around me that had Hondo available for in-store pickup.  That saved me a 1 hour round trip cause I was originally thinking of doing local pickup at that store.

The sale ends today and the fine print states you can not get the sale for previous purchases - so no price adjustments unless your customer service person really likes you.  :u:.  But you can of course buy all the items at the discounted price and then return them with your full price receipts.

So, my Armorer that I ordered on Dec 23rd finally showed up today.  Really happy that I got her.  Stupid that it's $75 before they give free shipping at TRU.

However, I was really lucky, as mentioned in my original post, I ordered an R5-P8 just so I get to $75 and not have to pay shipping.  I really couldn't care less about R5 but since I had Hondo, then I said whatever.  But only the Armorer shipped.  I got another email later on saying that they are sorry and they accepted my R5 order in error so they cancelled R5.

So, in the end, I was able to get her for just $49.99 and didn't have to buy anything extra or pay for shipping.

Post by: napseeker on January 08, 2021, 01:36:52 AM
I asked about why TRU was now wanting $75 to get free shipping when it used to be $35... seemed like a stupid thing to do given that their main competitors Amazon and Walmart would still ship for free if you spent $35.  Put them at a huge competitive disadvantage.

I was told by the asst manager that the company had switched to a different shipping provider (maybe this is part of why they can now offer 24 hour shipping via DoorDash?) and the cost was now higher.

They really need to lower it down to at least $50 (cost of 2 6-inch figures) because it is hard for me to spend $75 in any go when their online stock levels are so crap that there's barely anything to even buy.

Got a Tantive playset for $59.99 cuz TRU has a $10 off curbside pickup sale. Also got $10 off next curbside order if I buy before May29th.

Nice.

Just got Tantive playset for $45.97.  It's on sale for $55.97 and I used the $10 coupon. 

I was in store and saw it and asked if I can apply it.  She said it was online only so I said I'll just order it online and the manager walked by hearing this told her to just give me the $10 off at the till cause it might take like 30 mins or more for the order to get into the system for the store.

Well curbside is no longer available for the tantive set at my local TRU. so I tried home delivery. I added a harry potter lego set and a mini figure to get my order to $100 and was able to apply the curbside25 code to get $25 off. We'll see if they cancel it but it went through. Nice deal if it goes through.

The gaming greats vintage figures still say coming soon but the preorder is live. You can add them to your cart now. None of the other "coming soon" sw figures seem to be available to order though.

Tantive playset adventure in buying!
Online showed no stock at 4 Calgary locations. Called one of them. They had 2. I asked if I can apply $10 curbside coupon. Yup. Let me check and make sure we have it here. Great! I say. 15 min later... no stock sorry. Sad face. Wait. Hmm. I'd better check myself... yes! 2 in stock!! Get to till. Hey can I I get price protection on one i bought last week? Absolutely! She says! Sweet! 55.97 for 1st one, 45.97 for second! Not enough savings left for a 3rd, but still, WAY better cost than 2 would be from US!

They’re all gone. You could do a search using their names and you had them listed. Took no more than 10min. I was checking out with one of each and I got mention that Anakin was out of stock, then Obi-Wan, than Rex and then the Clone.

Anyway. Didn’t really want them, not into 6’’ anyway, but I liked the look. So too bad. Another round won by scalpers I guess... hurray for exclusives! Always fun to try to get thru the process without being frustrated... 🙄

Post by: Canadian Jedi on May 04, 2021, 09:14:20 AM
If you are having problems ordering , they may still have them, TRU's web site does not deal with volume really well.  And if it is an exclusive, pretty sure you will see these again either on the web site or the the store.  And most likely they will go on sale for 20-30 % off.

Yeah. People feared it would be the case. A little lame considering that TRU is promoting them and they barely have stock to last 10 minutes on their website.

At the moment the two Clones are still available for preorder. So maybe they’re just trying to distribute availability throughout the day, limiting the quantities sold over time. We’ll see...
Title: Re: ToysRUs.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Cujo on May 04, 2021, 10:48:36 AM
I posted in the May 4th thread... here's an updated short version of my post.

The 4 CW figures went up one by one over the course of about 10 minutes. They couldn't put up all at once. It's apparently how their website works (according to their Twitter feed).

If you wanted one of each and were trying to get them all in your cart at once... well I'm 99% sure all four of them were never in stock at the same time.

Their Twitter said they had limited quantities for launch. They put a few more up after a bit and they are going through orders to cancel duplicate orders so more may come. And they are trying to get more stock.

I'd say check back regularly but who knows. Maybe they'll get more later.

Bottom line, incompetence as usual.

Edit: 3 of 4 seem to be available as of 11:05am. No echo.

Last night I saw a bit of that pod-cast that TRU did with the 2 people from Hasbro and couple of collectors.   I thought it was great idea for TRU to do that.   As far as the launch release, TRU could have solved the problem they had when they were only able to release each figure at once and most of the customers wanted a set of four by having an option to purchase a full set.   :u:

I am so unimpressed with the exclusive offer. I had all 4 in the cart and then they kept dropping out. I finally  purchased the Hawk and Echo. I have shipped many times from TRU so I had no concerns. But for some reason I couldn't complete the purchase. That's because, even though I pay $20 for shipping with no discount because I am considered remote:

TOYS R US NO LONGER SHIPS TO MY POSTAL CODE

I just bought from them in February and had it shipped out to me. No problem. But now. I'm 1.5 hours from TRU. Sure there's 1.5 hour drive in Calgary to some of the TRU, but they get the shipping.

Yes for the retro waves, they are $9.99 in the US and $17.99 in canada. Bloody ridiculous. Seems like it is Hasbro Canada messing us up. So in this case it's cheaper to buy from the US. Hopefully Dorkside ships them. I've had 2 of my last three pre-orders canceled by them.

TRU shipping is getting worse. They upped their minimum for free shipping,  they used to ship to PO boxes, then they stopped without updating their policies (I had parcels sent back because they shipped courier to a PO Box, despite their own policy). Now they at least updated their policy to let everyone know they don't ship to PO boxes. And now this... this is worse. Pretty bad you won't even ship to some locations. All about them cheaping out on their shipping.

Yeah, TRU sucks.  Also, they never respond to inquiries.  I did 2 price adjustment requests since November and never got a response on any of them.

I'm just going to hope I get lucky and find Echo as I was only able to get the other 3.  I'm not willing to order another $75 worth of stuff if Echo becomes available just to get him.

Haha, this is the conversation I have with myself about figures that look cool but are not OT. Sometimes I give in and sometimes I don't.

This one fits my Boba collection so I went ahead. I quite like it. I would have gotten Vader if it was available. But I refuse to pay secondary market value on these. That's where I draw my line.  :)

And thanks for the heads up on this. Didn't think we would ever see this since vader never came here.

I received the 3 that I ordered today.  Came in a good sized box.  All three cards were placed standing in the box, but the box was big enough to hold 5 figures, so it moved around a lot.  The cards still stayed ok.

I never got Echo cause he wasn't available in the pre-order when I made the order though.  Luckily I managed to get him from the US (friend found and shipped to me).  I got Obi Wan and Hawk in store just in case so I'll refund those later this week.  I just got them just in case my order got cancelled and at least I would only have to track down Anakin if that happened.  Glad they showed up though.

Not sure if those that have him noticed, but Hasbro put Hawk's lower legs on backwards.

Here's the before picture:
(https://i.imgur.com/RtXSKHQ.jpg)

Notice that the points on the diamond shaped knee pads are not aligned with the flat spot designed for it on the lower legs.

Here is the after picture:
(https://i.imgur.com/T0KX0C3.jpg)

The diamond knee pads now rest within the flat area on the lower legs.

However, unfortunately, mine suffers from the misaligned breathing masking issue and I wasn't able to fix that.  It was glued too securely.

I consider them part of the retro collection. They'll always appear on any figure lists in the "Exclusives" section, but they're on the list.

My two arrived. In a small box but they were put in at an angle so they came in perfect shape. Very heavy card stock on the card back so that certainly helped. Looks like a double layer like the old POTF2 EU figures.

As for it being part of the retro or Vintage Collection. I'd say no. There is no reference to either series on the packaging. The packaging doesn't fit in with the retro horrid fake weathering. And it is way glossier than the regular vintage collection. To me this and the previous Vader are stand alone one off items. Definitely cool but not a hole in the collection if you don't have one. Of course now that I have the Fett I wish I had the Vader.  :speechless-smiley-004:

Agreed on this. It's hard enough getting hold of all the exclusives that ARE part of those lines, I don't need to make it harder by including the rainbow figures. They are one-off oddities, something that would be a Con exclusive during normal times. It sucked that Hasbro included the Mouse Droid and Salacious Crumb figures as numbered entries in the VC lineup, glad they did not give these an official connection.

Yeah that was a really short sighted and inconsiderate thing to do when they numbered the mouse Droid and crumb. I actually don't care one iota about the numbering, since I gave up on being a vintage collection completist ages ago. When the "regular" releases like Jango fett and death star escape luke didn't even come to Canada, and the likes of Nom Anor (who??) and Shae Vizla (again, who?) never released in Canada and had instant secondary market values that were unreasonable, well I dropped my completism to OT only. I do also get lots of others that I like, like Mando characters, Jango (found him on a peg at Walmart in South Carolina). But OT is my main focus. And even though numbers mean nothing to me, the mouse Droid and salacious are holes in my collection.

Anyway, Boba is a nice one off as far as I'm concerned.

And it just got weirder... Toysrus sent me an email about my cancelled order saying that I will be able to reorder it end of july. They will contact me. It's weird, let see how it will develop...


And you know what... I just got a shipping notice w tracking. I am so confused right now. Toys r Us is really weird. I hope you can reorder it without cancellation.

TRU called me yesterday afternoon to say they had my Prototype Boba Fett and that I could come and pick it up.  I showed her the email they sent me when they originally cancelled my order, asked her if it was still any good, and she gave me 40% off the figure right away.  Saved 8 bucks!

I'm thinking if it's across the board, then it's an increase on Hasbro's part at cost, which turns into an increase at retail.

Costs on anything coming from Asia these days is way up.  Sea freight has doubled or more.  Costs of any petroleum products like plastic have also increased in a big way.  Pricing is not going to come down anytime soon!

I remember really humming & hawing when we hit the $10.99 price point for power of the Jedi figures.  :(

Also listed as coming soon are Carbonized versions of BS Paz Vizla, Shoretrooper and Scout Trooper.

Edit: That was quick. Jawa just went out of stock

Probably pass on all the carbonized. Price is too ridiculous. Not even sure how much I'll still be collecting. Even the new VC figures will likely be passes. I was already really iffy on the $17.99 price but now at $19.99, I'll be even more selective.

I finally saw the retro proto Fett. I may have gotten it if it were $15 but not for $20 so I passed on him.

Of all the Mando figures to finally get me to spend some money - the cloth jawa will be the one to do it. Talk about hitting all the nostalgia buttons.  :speechless-smiley-004:

Hi, I just got some answers from toysrus.ca customer service team about some products  : "Thank you for contacting Toys “R” Us Canada.
We have heard back from our Merchandising Team regarding the two items that you had inquired about. It looks like we will be carrying both the Retro Stormtrooper figure, and the Vintage Collection - Antoc Merrick X-Wing.

It looks like stores are slowly starting to get the Antoc Merrick X-Wing, and it looks like we should be receiving more of that item in approximately mid October.
For the Retro Stormtrooper figure, we unfortunately have not received any of that item yet. It looks like there is a rough timeline of mid-November."


Hope this help !

Thanks for the update. Not sure I'm in for another x-wing as much as I'd like that figure.

I wonder if TRU will be getting the Droids action figures. I really want the fett.

That's a surprisingly helpful response from TRU customer service! I would have expected a canned answer and them pointing you to some other unrelated product.
