Classic Sets In Toys R US

Postby cfl_sw » Wed Jul 29, 2009 10:25 pm

A few days ago I was looking for the new endor set. I then came across the classic lego mtt. It was $35 at the till and I felt as if I was the luckiest guy ever (even though there was some box damage). I went to toys r us today again to pick up one more echo base (gotta love those taun tauns) and to my surprise there were two droid carriers, one att, and three naboo starfighters (all classic). I asked the manager and he said some were found in storage while they were remodling the store. (I took them off of there hands for msrp :D)

Has this ever happened before?

I'm so excited XD XD XD

After seeing this I had the manager look in the storage room for more. He didn't find anymore but I am happy enough as it is XD !

It's amazing that those sets would still be in the system.

Yes, it was the 1999 att. The droid carrier is great (I opened one).

At the till all of the classic sets costed me about $150 + taxes (the pirce is mostly from the naboo fighters).

Oh buddy, I just have to step in really quick. It's AAT, and while I wasn't going to say anything at first you just got it wrong again after being corrected on it. I know it can be hard to keep a lot of Star Wars vehicular abbreviations straight, especially when you're talking about the MTT in the same post, so I just thought I'd throw it out there. After all, we SW nerds should have pride in our knowledge and strive to be correct on such matters!
