We’ve all wondered why Toys”R”Us has had the ridiculous price of $179.99 (and as high as $208.99) on the MTT while other stores have had it in the $130 range. Some have even speculated that it was because it was going on sale in the future and this was to offset the future sale price. Today we can confirm that is the case as Toys”R”Us Big Toy Book will feature a coupon for $50 off. The coupon goes into effect on 10/28 and valid until 11/21. What a joke.
I ventured out this morning to my local Fleet Farm to check out their annual Toyland kick off and while I didn’t find anything “new” per se, I did see a nice selection of Deluxe/Class I vehicles, Clone Wars (Wave 2), Movie Heroes (Wave 2) and TVC figures (Wave 4, Rev 1.). Click the images above for some quick snapshots of the aisle.
