Just for the hell of it, I stopped at the closest TRU from me and hit up the action figure aisles. Of course its RoC everywhere and being that they were like 2 for 10 or something I was almost tempted to buy something (calm down, I passed.) I turn the corner of the end cap and bam...just like 2 months ago, still full pegs of Cobra Flint, about 50 Rippers and Torch, a few PP Siegies, Destro-Iron Grenadier CP, Scarred Cobra Troper and CG CP, Iron Grenadier TRU exclusive 3 packs, Deep Six, West Suit, Cutter TRU 3 packs, Tan AWE Striker and SHARC. Nothing I needed, nothing I didnt see there 4 months ago, but nice to see.
I dig around and now Im finding the goodness...Resolute Packs, Cobra 5 packs, a few dvd sets...and Im excited because I'll def take that Resolute stuff and the 5 pack..and I KNOW its gonna be dirt cheap right? I scan them and they both rang up 29.99...so I asked the lady walking by, "are these still 29.99?"...she scanned them with her piece and very nasty said "why wouldnt they be??"....I just put em down and left.
That TRU is both good and bad...time has no meaning there, I swear you can still find Go-Bots on the shelves if you look hard enough...however the place is an absolute mess, everyone is a nasty bitch and you may or may not get shanked on the way to your car.....just had to share.

the three tru's in my area can be hit and miss.it all depends on what you are looking for.to my amazement the one thats in the worst part of town seems to be the only one with anything of interest.it's smaller then the other two but everything grts sent there for some unknown reason and the sales are up there.

I don't want to sound like an asshole, but is their some reason those sets shouldn't have been $29.99? We all know the RoC stuff just came out, but it could take a while before the non-movie product drops in price...

They may be the same price but they could at least mark down the single carded figures. I wanted to start making some customs but I'm not paying full price for them there when I can search some targets and find clearance. My tru is ghetto too! Everything is always a mess, there's always a line, and they aren't very polite. Target on the other hand is full of nothing but goodness, lol.

Everything Joe is still full price here.. TRU isn't like Target, they take forever to mark stuff down, and even then it's like 10% or 20% off.

It takes years for TRU to clearance stuff.
You're thinking of Target.

TRU sits on stuff for years. Wish they were more like Target.
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...
