    TRU Ad: Nov. 23-26

    I just got next week's Toys R Us Ad. The once "exclusive" Lightsaber Action Pack from KB is gonna be at TRU.

    Actually they've had'em at Amazon for a bit now at that price. I'm suprised they're gonna be selling'em in store, maybe it'll worth checking out if they have some good figures with the sabers.

    Hopefully they pack them at the stores - my TRU has had a million red guards
    since last June. Maybe I can get some in a pack with the orange or green sabers I still need.

    I've already seen 'em in the stores. What caught my eye was that someone swapped one of the figures and left the space empty.

    They really should have a "you fill the slots" offer on these and the KB 4 packs. The idea is to have one of those large baskets or end cap with all figures that are available for the saber's 3 slots or the 4 pack slots. Then you fill the slots with the figures you want.

    I know some will argue the logistics and that some will try and cheat the system. Just have a 2-4 page pamplet that shows all the figures available for the offer at the register. Then the cashier will know if you're picks are up to snuff.

    It's just like the produce lists you see cashiers going through at registers in grocery stores. It takes a few seconds to scan through and check.

    Then again, Christmas is coming, some collectors are a-holes and would try to argue their way into screwing the whole thing up.

    You mean they're not? I've seen those KB ones filled every which way, even saw some gold-border figures in one last week!

    While a noble idea, I see a flaw that within a few hours there would be nothing but Orn Free Ta's & Senator Palpatines to fill up the 4-packs.

    Hopefully this will be a great gimmick to get all the pegwarmers out of the stores. Unfortunately for collectors like me who have about all they want to get of 2002 stuff (except for Ephant Mon, of course), it's not a great deal.

    Remember a couple of years ago on Black Friday when TRU had all their EP1 figures for $1.99? That would be great because the selection was pretty decent, not the same 5-6 figures that are ubiquitous in the value packs.

    The TRU I went to today had 4 huge boxes of these with nary but a few missing. I like the concept, but I really don't collect the toy lightsabers.
