    Toys R Us and Forbidden planet, first two up for hanging when the revolution comes

    I have good faith in tesco, to be fair, when toys are new, they sell them fairly close to RRP, but a few months down the line they always knock cash off to shift stock, something alien to TRU, and forbidden plant, sale, cheap, ha!

    There are beacons of light in small retailers though, theres a place near my home town (kidderminster) with a little shop called Cool collectables, though he also trades under Brians bargins, which is a little dodgy, but anyway, I picked up three action fleet, x-wing, falcon and Tie X1 for 20, when toys R us do them at 15 each. Also from now on buying most things from the us, its a bug I've only caught this year after first visiting this site a couple of months back

    Maybe TRU have had a change of heart... well, we can at least pretend:

    Went to the Brent X outpost today - no 2003 product, but at least all SW Saga merchandise is on 50% sale!

    I don't know if this store is typical of the national TRU chain, but basic Saga figures are 2.99 each, including a plentiful supply of Saga Battle Droids.
    (Shame there were no Coruscant Guards or Super Battle Droids, or I might've been tempted to make a few purchases.)

    They've also got Jedi Starfighters for 9.99 and various smaller Saga vehicles/beasts for 7 or so. Slave 1 is around 15.

    I thought about buying a spare Typho for customizing, but decided against it.

    In the end I made do with an inflatable dinghy....

    My local TRU's have the deals on too. Slave-1 and Starfighter at 9.99 each. Figures (all last years) 2.99 each. Including ephant mon - bargain! The deals are national and if your TRU is not participating call the TRU HQ and ask why. They should also have the lower prices. TRU is a national chain not a franchise so individual store managers don't have the right to call the shots with prices.

    TRu has really a crappy selection and the workers are rude
