Tru Info, Inventory And Pending List


Mega Man
 Share

Recommended Posts

Here is a listing of Toys R Us inventory as of this afternoon for skn#170669 EX GI INFANTRY AKA Cobra Infantry Forces 6 Pack. This is what the label says on the case: EX GI INFANTRY, not troop pack or army builder pack or cobras or blue guys or vipers before they were vipers..... Its key to know what you are asking for when talking to an employee who, gawd forbid, doesnt keep up on currents events with all things GI Joe and are called "stupid" for not knowing what you are talking about right away. When looking for a case they will see EX GI INFANTRY on the box and pass it up if YOU dont ask right to begin with.

 

Below is the information that an employee will see when looking up the skn# 170669 in INTRANT.

 

The 4 digit number on the left is each TRU store number, if you dont know what your local TRU numbers are look on your reciept or call and ask for their number.

INV is in-stock inventory, what the store should have recieved already.

PEND is stock pending, meaning it hasnt arrived in that particular store yet or they will be recieving more soon.

* means that store wont be recieving this item. This is not the employees fault nor management so if you must vent like a 2 year old keep this in mind... its on a corporate level.

 

Also keep in mind if a store recieves a truck on friday it most likely wont be out on friday. There are still human beings that have to physically unload merchandise so this 6 pack may be under and behind several dozen power wheels, barbies, diapers, swingsets and bikes! Each box must be scanned in and put somewhere in a store room, THIS TAKES TIME! Dont be stupid with demands, if you ask and an employee tells you they cant get it off the truck there is a reason. They cant phase through solid matter like its thin air nor have x-ray vision to pinpoint one case among hundreds.

 

Notice most stores havent recieved their stock yet or their largest supply for that matter which is why many havent found them yet...they didnt arrive yet! And there are quite a few stores with an * that wont recieve them. Many stores are still getting 2-3 cases soon, and this isnt the entire allotment going to stores so more can show up again... and again amazon.com hasnt even made theirs available yet. There are no conspiracies or employee scalpers when most stores havent recieved their bulk stock yet infact you own worse enemy in aquiring these are yourselves army building and hoarding en mass and trying to gloat, some stores got 3 cases in, many only got 1 initial shipment but more are to come in most areas. With all the collectors after this and buying multiples not all blame should be passed to employees if you cant find them.

 

When asking an employee, of coarse not everyone will know what you are talking about. If you worked in a store and were thrown in the doll section would any of you honestly know the answers off the top of your head in one second if asked if you had a barbie doll with horizontal purple stripes and a pink skirt with a cat not the vertical stipes with a dog or a dark haired kelly with red hearts and a yo-yo not a loli pop? There are litterally hundreds of thousands of products available at any store for some its like a needle in a hay stack to find minute variations and specifics. As others suggested, be calm patient,and rational. Heres the info you need....

I dont know why I'm bothering to go through the trouble to help considering the nasty comments and accusations employees get or the double standards when I see and read others buying or wanting to buy 20 sets and still looking for more doing the same thing they accuse employees of (buying them all up) yet when they do it they have "cool" armies and arent in any way contributing to the anxiety and impatience and rise in cost at all by their hoarding...

I think most collectors know it's not employees or managers or store's faults, but both corporations, both hasbro and TRU as long as they keep pushing stocking up on VvV 12" and similar items, that just means less shelf room for the stuff we really want, like the infantry packs. Thanks for the post, Mega Man, I'm sure this will be helpful to a lot of us out there.

Did anyone notice the one store with 23 on-hand and 120 cases pending?

I'd be all over that.

"IT PAYS TO DISCOVER!" BABY!!!!!!!

that's this store:

which is I think the times square location. I think their motto is that whatever is bought one day is restocked by the next. Makes sense that they'd have that many sets in stock then.

(when collectors buy)

20 sets and still looking for more doing the same thing they accuse employees of (buying them all up) yet when they do it they have "cool" armies and arent in any way contributing to the anxiety and impatience and rise in cost at all by their hoarding...

Yes, I find this double standard highly amusing. Don't collectors realize they're just helping out the scalpers...? Look if you're gonna hoard every set that comes ino your local TRU, Then at least spread some of that wealth with people on these message boards desperate for just one, that would really help stomp on the scalpers. No one to buy them, no reason to sell them right? Joe collectors should help each other out.

Just called my toys r us with that sku #. 12 units are coming in on a truck today and will be put out tomorrow. I asked her to hold 6 of them for me but some how I doubt that it will happen. But i called another Toys R us that is closer to my work and they have 4 instock right now that i will pick up on my way home today. If anyone wants i can hopefully pick up extras for some of you guys. You can buy them from me at cost plus shipping (plus any thing extra you might want to throw in.:D) Let me know i will see what i can do.

All you have to do is call 1-800-toys r us and tell them, where you live and that you are looking for product info. Them them the sku#170669 and ask them if they have any in the store near you. They can look it up from there. And since they are coporate they are not going to lie to you....Not only that for a small handling fee you can order from the phone. I ordered 4 sets and within2-3 days they will get it for you (with no tax). I order on Saturday afternoon and I picked mine up today, and since they et me pick from the case and bought 1 more....So I got 5, and it save me the headache...

I just got off the phone with 1-800 TRU and they were of no help at all.

 

The person I spoke to said that he could not order the item because it is not available for home delivery at this time.

 

He also said that he could not order any to a specific store if the item is listed as pending for delivery to that store.

 

He took my email addy and basically added me to the amazon list again

 

The only good thing I did find out was that a TRU near me is supposed to get 18 of them in next Friday..but I am not getting excited because that is what I was told this week and I am still empty handed because they did not get them in as they told me they were going to @hmmm@

The reason 1-800-toys cant order any for a particular store that is pending them is because they are already ordered and on its way. The units in the warehouse are sheduled to be sent to specific stores and cant be cancelled and re-routed to other regions.

 

I forgot to mention the list I posted is mainly of the n east coast region since they already hit the west coast and many couldnt find anything on the east side yet. By now the packs have hit many stores east and should be on some shelves as reported by some aleady. Someone already beat me to it but amazon now has the pack available today. I only glanced at the list yesterday and saw a few more pending in some stores that had double zeroes for inv and pend I'll try to get more info and other regions if I have the time tomorrow.
