View Full Version : IS the TRU POTJ AT-ST a rare find?

04-05-2002, 02:59 PM
I went in to TRU today, my first time in months, and they had 4 of the AT-STs. I don't collect vehicles but I had to pick this one up. The packaging is so darn cool. Is this a hard one to find or not?

I finally saw them in the stores about 2 weeks ago. The store only got about 4 each... if they got them at all. I don't believe the incidence of restock on these is too high...

Around here, Pittsburgh, PA their a dime a dozen. I was at TRU yesterday and they had 3 (That was the same amount as a week ago.) either they are not selling or getting replenished rather quickly.

My TRU got 8 and sold them all on the same day... (1 went to me!!) but I don't think they have restocked since.

So I would say rare... as most exclusives are.

There are still about 4 on the shelves at the TRU near me. They've been there for about 2 weeks. They had originally gotten like 12 or so, but they've been slow sellers compared to other exclusives. Not much demand around here for them I guess.

I haven't seen them once in Cincinnati, despite living near two different TRUs.

I just did a quick search for the POTJ AT-ST on eBay, and found that most of them have starting bids between $30 and $40, and most still have zero bids. I guess there isn't that much demand out there, if you can get this exclusive on eBay for the same price you would've paid at TRU.

Well doesn't sound too rare at all then. But that's ok, It sure looks cool it that packaging, rare or not. :)

It looks even better OUT of the package.;)

LOL I bet it does. perhaps in the near future I'll open it up. Ya just never know. ;)

The Toys R Us where I recently went on a business trip had over 25 of the AT-ST exclusive. It was then I decided against them.

I got mine last week and at that time there were 3 left after I got mine. I went back there this afternoon after work and they had restocked them. There had to be at least 8-10 of them on the shelf and an additional 4-5 on top of the shelf. No shortage of them here in Raleigh.
A great toy in my opinion. Love the packaging and the design.

you base your purchases on how rare an item is? that doesn't seem right to me

No no no.... not at all. My point came accross wrong. I bought one about two weeks ago where I live. It was just that where I got it, the store got like 4 total from what a friend who works there told me. Then this Toys R Us in a smaller town gets 21 more than a big city did! Makes no sense. So it was then that I decided against them ever becoming much in the way or rare. Sorry guess I shoudl have clarified.

just thought you might like to know that starting on april 9 tru is starting a sale on the atst, if you are on thier mailing list, there is a coupon in the mailer you'll get at home, not at the store or in the newspaper, for 20% off any one toy. Use it on the atst and save some coin. if they are out of stock then make them raincheck it, they will since its an ad item.

Thanks for the info, and the TRU's around here always have plenty of At-Sts.

04-07-2002, 06:42 PM
Theses keep coming and going at my TRU's. I need to get one to open.

04-07-2002, 07:43 PM
drizzit, where on the TRU page can you get on the mailing list? I have looked and cant find it anywhere!

The three closest TRU's in my area all seem to have them in pretty good quantities. My girlfriend bought me one as a gift! She's so SWEET!:D

Saw them tonight. My TRU had plenty. Might get one later. My only gripe is that there should be a figure in the AT-ST.
