View Full Version : Saga figures for $1.90 at Toys "R" Us

Hello all!

Just came back from TRU Times Square and had a remarkable experience. Clearance figures for $1.90. Here is my story:

TRU had a huge Star Wars Saga Figures isle filled with Luke Bespin, Vader, Luminara, Dex, Yoda, etc. (everything you could want). They also had a big bin off to the side with Super Battle Droids and Anakin Outland Peasants with red stickers saying "CLEARANCE $1.90" and a UPC barcode on them. I had the idea to take off the sticker and use it on one of the other figures (Luke Bespin for example). So I tried it and left it in the bin. Some guy comes over and starts looking for more Luke Bespins. He eventually buys the Luke and one of the cash register ladies rung it up no muss, no fuss. She asked one of her superiors, however, if the Luke was on clearance. So I tried this again with a Luke and Padme (w/ background w/ mole) and took it downstairs to another cash register and a different woman who never suspected a thing rung it up for the cost of $4.11 (for 2 figures). So I did it again with a Yoda and took that home for $2.06. All in all, a remarkable experience of finding the loop holes in large corporate schemes. I did this once in 1997 when TRU put out $2 off stickers that expired but still rung up on registers. Maybe some of you remember at a few Wal-Marts back then, figures were on clearance for $2 and the $2 off sticker coupon still worked so people were getting figures for free.

Gotta agree with the rest of posters so far. This is definatly not cool. It's not cool at all. Stuff like this is what causes stores to not want to order Star Wars products. :(

As is most obvious, I don't get on here and post a whole lot. I think this is #1, in fact. But I do look at the ocassional pictures and trends, being a semi-collector of figures. But in the short time I've been here, I've seen a disturbing trend.

It seems (and hopefully the ratio isn't as bad as I see it) that a lot, a LOT of people on here post about ripping off businesses, deals they got through dishonesty, or try to rip people off via trades. As was said before, you're making everyone look bad, those of you who do it. It makes me embarassed to think that I might be filed with the collecting community when I purchase a figure. And I know, from the replies here, that not everyone acts in the manor that the original posters do. That, at least, gives me some comfort.

Do us all a favor, at least don't post about your dishonest acts so that guests to these boards don't get the wrong ideas. You could be building a bad reputation for everyone on here, not just yourself. I've seen other communities fall to the same trap, thanks to just a handful of wrong doers.

That's not funny at all. He cheated the store out of money they rightfully deserved. They affixed the bar code stickers to the figures they were clearencing out, to make sure they rang up at the correct discounted price. He knowingly cheated the store, and cheated the other collectors in his area, for doing it. Not to mention giving the entire collecting community a black eye for ripping a store off. :mad: :(

Not really, How could an employee of a MAJOR STORE IN TIMES SQUARE know exactly how much every single item is supposed to cost? They are not machines (that's the whole point of bar codes) They probably don't know anything about Star Wars and the figs are in the same package. Thieves always slip up and do something(in this case brag about it.)

You just cheated the collectors at that area also. They clearanced those specific figures for a reason - because they obviously weren't selling as well. So not only have you cheated the store out of a profit, but you've also done it by using the price of clearanced slow-selling stock to get figures that are selling more than those. So if that other stock doesn't get cleared out, that's gonna slow the order of other figures that will be eventual peg-warmers so that TRU may even order less and less and less when more figures stop selling because you were cheap on already cheap figures.

Well it's good you made restitution. A true collector would never use illegal privleges to get what they need. Switching the barcode is something a scalper would do. I'm sure you don't want to be considered scalper material. I applaud you for doing the right thing.

i had an expireince with price switching...but not with star wars and not how you think. you see....it was a lego back in 95-96. i had a coupon for 3 dollars off and the tag on the box said 6.95 and there was no hard plasstic price thing on the shelves either. the whole lot was like that. we went up to the checkout and it rang up at 15.96. my dad was PO'd. he asked to see the manager because the person wouldn't give us the price it said. we finaly got out of there (a k-mart) and went home. it ended up being 6.95 like the tag said. the next week we went in there and all of them had the correct price.....was that a bad thing to do? i'll take it back...;)

All you people make me laugh with your talk of thats "illegal" pllllllllllleeeeeaaaaaaassssseee...Murder is illegal, Rape is illegal, Stealing a car is illegal..... I seriously doubt that any store in the world would summon the police to the scene cause you bent a card or changed prices the most they would do is make you leave or ban you. YOu guys sound like some scared rabbits. "Ewwww lets not rip off the billion dollar mega corporation out of $4 dollars it illegal"......Next you guys are going to be defending banks, insurance companies, and the IRS as good honest things that are out for our best interests....sheeeshh. Yet switching prices is morally wrong....you should have just coughed up the right price...and I agree with what LT said. by switching them you just left abunch of anakins and droids there that will never sell...and then the chain reaction or the theory of chaos should kick in and no new figures will get ordered cause crap is clogging the pegs. Just be honest and everything works good in my experience or from a certain point of view.

Let's see, you know vandalism is illegal right?
Ok, consider this: You don't own the property of the mechandise while the store does until you pay the amount + tax (if there is tax) on it, then it's yours and you can do whatever with it. However, if you do NOT purchase it, then it still the store's propery that you are damaging purposely, which is called vandalism.

It's not a new in the law, it's been around for a while, and damaging store merchandise just happens to fall under it.

Don't take what i said out of context. But seriously I laugh at all of you with you illegal crap. It might be but its ridiculous and nobody would ever get convicted on such a silly charge. I saw something like this happen years ago when a kid had took a price tag gun from k mart and was marking his figure down then hiding the price tag gun. He got caught and they made him pay the real price then they banished him from the store. Its wrong to do what this guy did by switching tags so he could get Luke and Yoda. I don't endorse that or support him it was wrong. He should have just paid the right price. But stop with the "illegal" talk its so stupid i want to bust out laughing. ITs very wrong and might fall under the law but according to the law its illegal to cuss in public also...jtlyk :)

The thing about it is that scalpers COULD get busted on illegal charges - which would make them pay.
Also, when scalpers do "illegal" things inside the store with SW figures, it does give collectors bad names because employees don't stop and think about the differences.

Another thing is that if it gets pointed out that it's illegal, it has a chance of catching on and then intimidating people not to do it.

How would you feel if you saw a scalper in the aisle crunching up a bunch of new figures (including hurting the figures inside) because they can't afford them and then only getting a tap on the wrist by the employees for doing so? I'd rather see that jerk get fined.

JEDIpartner
06-24-2002, 08:50 AM
Yeah... that is totally shoplifting. I worked in Music Retail for YEARS. Price switching is SO not cool. Oh, And BillyJack, someone HAS been convicted of that. We prosecuted three different people on two separate occasions. They had switched pices on what SHOULD have been $200 worth of merchandise. They were all $14.99+ discs and the shoplifters put discount rack stickers on them. It's not so ridiculous for them as they had to pay a fine, court costs and were sentenced to 60 days in the can WITHOUT any chance of getting the jailtime waived.

I'm talking strickly toys here. Action figures...no electronics or cds or dvds or video games. just toys. And LT if i ever see anyone bending cards or anything i'm always get the manager unless i want to blackmail them out of whats in their cart as i did last week. and i think next time i'll tell on them anyway just too see how illegal it is...

It depends on the store owner and also the municipality. All of the stores from ZanyBrainy (a toy store) to PetSmart have prosectued people. It really depends on the total $$$$ . I think all of the stores in that city prosecuted if the amount was over $100.00 otherwise, they did just get banned from the store and any of the other store in the chain in that metro area.

But they've gone to the other extreme. My KMart isn't ordering any more according to one manager. All they have are a bunch of deluxe Leias and about 6 saga figures. Oh well. It's not like I would find good stuff there anyways.

Hello. I would like to send a reply to those doubting the fact that I returned the figures. I want you to know that I did in fact really return them. I'm not a scalper or a bad person. I just wanted to save a buck and I see where that has gotten me. I was fortunate not to get in trouble, but I still feel very bad about it. So I want to asure you who are in doubt that the figures were ACTUALLY returned. It takes a heartless individual to do what I did. But it takes a BAD person to then go ahead and lie about it.

Not to start a fight here...but if you did actually return them (which I, myself, doubted), but are those other bar codes still attached to those figures? It's really going to do a lot of good if they put them back out with the bar codes still attached and someone else (unsuspectingly) buys them again at that price...

And on the subject that this isn't illegal, like h*ll it's not! That would be like you taking a Saga figure, running up to and past the registers and throwing a dollar, or a partial payment at the cashier and leaving the store. Just because you paid a little bit of the price, doesn't mean that you're not stealing.
Okay, I'm finished....no more ranting will I do on this thread. I have others I can meddle in.

Actually, had he kept those figures, he would have been just as bad. It's like I said about taking a figure, running out of the store, but throwing back a dollar. The figures he picked up were not marked for the lower price, yet he felt he could pay that amount for them anyway.
That would be like saying, "Oh, they have these wrestling figures (just an example) here for $7.99, but the Star Wars figures are only $4.99. Well, I'm only going to pay $4.99 for the wrestling figures..." That's still stealing. He/she would not be paying the price intended for those toys.

It's not something to simply "chill out" about. I'm sorry, but like what the guy did in Boba Fett's link, this hurts everyone in the collecting community. Stealing raises prices, hinders or haults shipments of toys all together - it's just not right. And if someone can be made to feel bad enough about it that they "right the wrong" so to speak, well that's good, and should be encouraged, IMO.
And why is it that people can't be mad anymore? I know this is a little off topic, but it seems that here, and everywhere else nowadays, people are not allowed to be angry.
For those of you who watch it, this was discussed on Politically Incorrect with Bill Mahr (don't really like him, but I watch for the debates). But it's true......we're never allowed to express anger. And I think on an open forum (with the exception of pointless name calling and cursing or anything else like that) we should be allowed to express our feelings on such matters. I see no harm in expressing my anger that someone had risen the cost of figures for me....if that's the actual case. I know he said he returned them, and I'm not speaking about him directly anymore, but just in general...that's all.

On a related topic . . .

In late August of last year, our local Wal-Mart took all the POTJ pegwarmers (Porkins, Bespin Leia, Chewie Mechanic) and clearanced them at $3 a fig. Problem was, one the new shipment of figures came in (I believe it was the Ketwol wave, which came late to that particular store) the prices rang up $3 even though they were new figures. The Luke X-wing wave, I presume but never actually saw and thus verified, and the FX-7 and Zutton wave showed up for that same $3 price (reg price $6.44) despite the fact they were new waves.

It was early this year (March?), that I found several EpII preview figures (retail price $6.44 at first, then $5.88) returned to the store. How did I know they were returned? Because I saw Zuttons and other figures in the EpII packaging. Whomever returned those to the store, probably paid $3 for those Zuttons and other figures. They most likely bought the EpII preview fig for $6.44, opened it and took out the figure, replaced it with a Zutton, sealed it back up, returned it to the poor ladies at the customer service who wouldn't know the difference between a Bounty Hunter and a Jedi, and pocketed $6.44 despite the fact he only coughed up $3 for Zutton thus, he actually made money ($3.44) and pocketed a Star Wars figure to boot. The Zuttons sat on the shelving for months but luckily someone picked it up.

Anyway while reading the police report in April or May, a young man was arrested for switching price tags on Star Wars figures at Wal-Mart. It said somehow, he switched it so he could pay only $28 worth of merchandise instead of the $40something that it was actually was worth. He was arrested and banished from the store. Don't know the circumstances of his switch, but he got caught and I am guessing that it was this same crook who switched the Zuttons and other figures.

what a good deal on super battle droids. i picked up a bunch! even for that price they seem to be moving slow! Oh well, more for me to get today. I'm giving people a chance to pick up a few, but i will continue to get more each day until they run out!


i have to agree about people who steal. a kid who steals doesn't know any better but as a adult, they should know better. stealing leads to higher prices and less stock.

I'm glad to see so many people in opposition to stealing on this board. It's good to surround yourself with people of good moral character.

Yes many of us complain about how high prices are, but taking things is no justification around high prices. We all know the ages-old debate about supply vs. demand so let's just agree that if something isn't worth the $, leave it for clearance or for someone who's willing to pay.

i would like to see other figures go to $1.90 clearance.

let's see, the royal guard, genosian warrior & clone trooper are a few in my mind.

well, went back to times square TRU. the bin is getting thin now. Picked up more super battle droids for 1.90. willcheck t'morrow if there are more. If anyone is in the times square area, pick some up before they are gone, cause i will be back there t'morrow buying more super battle droids! great army builder for that price!

when are the POTJ peg warmers going to go down in price?

Never I guess, a Wal-Mart here still has (literally) a peg full of Jek Porkins for $5.88 each.

I asked a manager at my local TRU yesterday about any potential clearances on POTJ or SAGA figures. She said there was no clearance in the forseeable future. :(








Let's just hope she has really bad vision...
