Carbonized Collection -- The Mandalorian
« on: December 15, 2019, 06:01:21 PM »

I've seen posts that the Carbonized Mandalorian was available on the Toys R Us website, but I noticed today that the link's been taken down.
I've never seen one in store myself, nor do I know of anyone actually picking one up.

Has anyone here actually purchased a Carbonized Mandalorian from Toys R Us in-store? I'm wondering if I've missed out, or just need to keep waiting.

I would think by now that we have missed out.  Some TRU stores in Canada, and only a few, actually did get one one case each but they were snapped up very quickly.  I chased around to several stores in Ontario only to be told either they had come and gone, or that they didnít get any.
Luckily a fellow Snowtrooper found one for me.

My brother and I have called the Brampton TRU 2 times a day since the first sighting at a Mississauga TRU on November 15th.  I have been told time and again that they still haven't received any.  Heck, they even know it is us calling because they see our number on the call display.

Well I was in the store last week, and when asked, one of the workers from the action figures section said that they had come in 2 weeks ago and were snapped up.  I really don't know what to say.  Calling every single day, only to be told they haven't arrived yet, then getting told they came in and sold out.  Heck, even some of the workers that I know at the store who are waiting for it for themselves still say they haven't come in yet.

This is and the SDCC Boba Fett were the two figures that I really wanted for myself.  First time I ever went to FanExpo, to get Fett, and he was sold out before it even opened to the general public, and now this.  :'(

Sometimes the staff of stores simply don't care. I also believe, but have no proof, that the communication between their own staff is terrible or non-existent.

I'm guessing that if they did get to the store, they most likely didn't even hit the floor...

Christmas miracle. Stopped by the mall to pick up some cinnamon buns and decided to pop in to Toys R Us. Wouldn't you know it, two freaking Carbonized Mandalorians on the shelf. I couldn't believe it.

My son is gonna flip out on Christmas morning
