My store was restocked, but only have one Jack'O'Lantern set left. Plenty of the rest. I hope someone is watching this thread, because I can't afford to grab them & sit on them, nor walk around the store with them forever.

To which store are you referring?

I'd say, "Well somebody return one!" but... I'm pretty sure TRU wouldn't even let you at this point.

In any event, not a huge deal, as I already have one.

They are not allowing returns. They mark the barcodes on the packages (& sometimes receipts) with Sharpie.

These guys have been super hard to find. I have been to every TRU in my area and still no luck on that Chameleon set. If anyone has an extra or two at retail, I would be very appreciative. I also have a bunch to trade. Thanks! This is such a great wave and it's a shame that so few are going to make it out into the wild.

I am still looking for the Chameleon set. They never showed up at the Pensacola TRU.

So today I ventured to my local TRU in Bloomington, IL.

I found on package of the Spider-Armor Spider-man/Superior Foe Beetle from this TRU25 wave.

Never saw any other packs in the store.

I wish I had known a little sooner that some new stock would reach my local store, or I would have gone everyday to get these when they came in.

I will try back but likely will never see them in stock again at my local TRU.

They appear to be stocking my old local TRU (NAnuet, NY) like crazy, all the shelves are full, staffers are busy doing that, and not manning registers. My store was only offering 10% off, and I actually forgot to check the Marvel aisle. :(

TRU 26 did not ship, but TRU 25 did, so they have them all, and as far as I know they are pushing stuff out to be sold.

My toys r us minimate section is almost nonexistant. There were only a few dark tower mates and a couple older predator mates.

I bought this whole set off ebay for around $40. My nearest Toys R Us is about an hour and a half away, so I would have spent around that much on gas seeking these out no matter what. When I called that store to ask if they were in stock, the worker who answered had no inkling what Minimates even were. Though I never asked, I surmised based on her tone that she had no intention to check the system and verse herself. There was a strong possibility of me driving all that way for naught.

For the first few weeks of clearance my TRU no longer appeared to be re-stocking anything, but I went in earlier this week and yeah, they definitely are re-stocking things... it's just... taking a while.

I noticed they had some new Power Rangers Legacy products, appeared to get a bunch of new Tsum Tsums in (I'm a disney nerd, I check this)... and it looked like they'd re-upped a lot of board games, because I've been eyeballing a Clue silverline edition, and they were dwindling before, but they now suddenly have dozens.

No new minimates or legends, but at least it's proof positive they're still getting new shipments.

At first all my local stores were 10%-30% off (barely anything in the store was actually more than 10%) and now they're up to 20%-40% off (and barely anything in the store is over 20%)

I'm eyeballing that Silverline Clue and a WWE replica title among other things. Kinda waiting out a bigger price drop. Clearances are hard... you know better discounts are coming, but if you wait too long, everything gets bought up. Gotta find that sweet spot.

Building blocks are 10 now. And as for new shipments, warehouses are starting to shut down. Here in Indy, we received our last truck. We'll have a few weird shipments trickle in from the online warehouse and the liquidators, but product flow WILL begin drying up. That said, not EVERY warehouse is shuttered yet.

If anyone needs anything from this wave, pm me.  I just left one of the local TRUs.  They had about 15 of each set.  The only set I purchased (not one of these) was 4.58 after taxes.

Wow. That's terrific, and very generous of you, Mr. Turtle. 👍

I was pretty floored at the sheer number.  I guess all of the sets that didn't end up in everyone else's stores ended up in mine.

Menagarie on ebay has the whole set for $30 right now in case any one else needs them. But right on Mr. Turtle for helping out!
