DTC found at TRU


Recommended Posts

Okay I had an extra set of both wave one and two. I called and asked if they took them and was told if they are in the system. I took my two sets up to TRU and was indeed able to return the figures for instore credit. So if someone gets on here and says they found them at my locaion , it was my returns. (They put a big UPC sticker on the back of the cards)

I just got back from the somerville toys r us off of the route 206 traffic circle, and they had one snow serpent, one range viper, and a bunch of crimson guard. Don't know if they were all returns or not.


Ok this has to be some sort of a Hokes. Who in the write mind would return a "BLEEPING" Crimson Guard figure? I have been trying forever to get my hand a decent set of "BLEEPING" Crimson Guards. There are always two problems when trying to get hand on some Crimson Guards, either I do not have the money, or I the have money yet there sold out. It is like a "BLEEPING" curse. The only Crimson Gourd I got is Tomax, Xamot and 2 agent Faces in Crimson Guard disguise. @smilepunch@



I have six of the agent faces :) anyway the head on the dtc cg pisses me off

Well its been a couple of days and all 12 Joes I returned are still on the pegs (Crimson Guard, Range Viper, Medi Viper and Snow Serpant included). They have been looked at because Ive been to TRU everyday this week and they are rearranged every day but no one is buying.



OH NO! Now the line will die forever.




Shouldn't it be easy enough to tell if these are really coming to retail? Wouldn't there be dozens of posts saying the same. People verifying in their cities. Collectors should just be patient. From what I've been seeing around these boards, it looks like the 3 3/4 line should be back on shelves soon enough. That's good enough for me. I'm pretty sure the ones that started this whole mess were simply returns. People will do anything to make some extra money off of stores. Our TRU had those SNL Trivial Pursuit games for 4.95. They sold out in about a week. Suddenly, my PX had an overstock of the same game on their shelves. The PX sells em for 43.96. People will buy and return at other places if they can make a buck. I think that's all this was (for now), and we should just calm down and wait it out. Enjoy S6 in the meantime (or hate it, the choice is yours).

Someone finally bought some, I went back in this afternoon and there were only three of the figs left, oddly enough the three left were the Snow Serpant, Medi Viper and Scrap Iron.


I think these set on te pegs for so long though was just the price, we still have some two packs that were right next to the singles, the sticker tha the store put on the package and toy collectors may not have looked at the Joe stuff closley. Lubbock is a cut throat market when it comes to toy collecting. It is a smaller market (less than 250,00) but iss a Hub City for its surrounding communities and four other smaller cities (between 150,000 and 200,000). I figured these would have been snatched up the day they were put out. As other toys collectors, kids and Chicken Men snatch up real quick.
