Super Heroes Shows Up At TRU

Postby Staff » Thu Dec 01, 2011 12:07 pm





Toys'R'Us lists 6864 Batmobile and the Two-Face Chase on their website. It shows out of stock for shipping but is sold in stores so you may be able to get your hands on these sets before Christmas. It's the only set to show up on their site. Price is $49.99 which may or may not include Toys'R'Us' holiday price gouge. If you can find it in stores before Sunday, it should qualify for their BOGO 50% off sale. Happy hunting!

Thanks to Jason for writing it in.

This is good! Maybe we'll get the new Star Wars sets in a little early too. :)

I'm under the impression that it's January 22 or 23. I can't remember where I saw or read that, so there's the possibility I made it up. I'm also under the impression that the Super Heroes sets technically have a street date of January 2, but again, I have no idea where I'm getting my information (a dream? a hallucination?) and may be totally off base. I'm good about being totally off base.

The Superman vs. Power Armor Lex set is now in stock too. At $21.99, it looks like it only has a $2 TRU tax applied.

Just saw some new ninjago sets, some bagged hero factory sets, some ninjago boat and four wheeler, ninjago expansion sets that are packaged like big versions of minifigs, super heroes and some additional 2012 city sets like the fireplane.
eBay store, contact me if you'd like to perform trades from my inventory. I'm looking for original genosian fighers, second version a-wing fighters and tie bombers. I may be interested in other sets so let me know what you have.

I saw a few of these at my local TRU (manassas, VA) last night, and HOLY CARP the "TRU tax" on the batman/catwoman "battle pack" was insane! They had it priced at $17.99! I assume this will be a $11.99 price point when it hits regular retail.

The other sets had a more standard mark up ($20 to $22, $40 to $43, etc) but I was stunned by the... what is that, 50% mark up? JEEZ.

You think that's bad, the TRU I visited last night had the Catcycle priced at $19.99 (msrp is $12.99). I was at this same store on Monday and it was priced at $17.99, but at that time it wasn't on shelves yet as they had just begun to trickle out the stock to available shelves. All the other sets had an additional markup as well, higher than what's been reported so far, but people have been buying them up literally as they're put out, with the exception of the build-a-figure sets, which have seen little interest.
