Okay, this year at Toys R Us I have noticed with Movie related toys that the week a movie is released or the week after, the line goes on sale. Everything from a couple of dollars off to buy two at $__.99 I first noticed it with Wolverine:Origins. The figures started popping up around mid-late Feb and when the movie came out in May they were on sale. Same thing happened with Transformers ROF, Terminator Salvation & Star Trek. Another thing I noticed is that Movielines aren't overflowing like in the past with Indiana Jones, Batmans, & SpiderMans.
Well, my question is are you buying up all the ROC stuff now, or are you pacing yourself in hopes ROC does going on sale and you can troop build to your hearts content?
If and when they go on sale I'll be buying Zartans, Desert Dukes, Cover Girl and/or Scarlett. If the prices is right I check into the vehicles.

I've bought 17 figures so far, but I think I have gotten my plastic crack fix for now. I can wait.
Wal-mart also had sales closer to the release date of TF:ROTF.

Yeah, hit a few must haves, and wait for the others later. Especially since I'd like to have a complete set of these now.

The store I found them at only had one case on the pags. I came home with three of them. I'll probably pick up one or two more at a time as i start running across them in bulk next week when they're out every where. When/if there's a sale at TRU I'll make a trip out to it. Its pretty far out for me so i'll only bother if there's a sale.
