    Post HERE when you find the Toys 'R Us Exclusive MOTUC/DCUC comic two-packs!

    So according to Pixel Dan's video, these two packs should be hitting TRUs possibly within the next week (!). This is a surprise considering the ToyFare ad stated that the release date would be April/TBD. I figure we better have a thread where we can post when any of us find these two-packs so we know what areas they are hitting.

    Finding a Mattel figure in TrU has been almost impossible for years. There are never any DC Classics except about 2 when I go in there, just like there were never any MOTU way back in 2002. Other companies flood the shelves with their figures though (Marvel Legends, Jakks Pacific wrestling, etc).

    PixelDan made a video of the reveals at Toy Fair and the way he worded it ti sounded like we could be seeing them as soon as next week.

    I didn't say next week I said it seemed that they could come 'as soon as' next week.

    Wow, since I completed my McFarland Dallas Cowboys for this year, I haven't had a reason to go into TRU...

    Guess that's changed.

    Don't really want the DCU figures OR the He-Man, but I really like the yellow-skull Skeletor.

    I want both packs, for the Comic that comes with He-Man, and for the Skeletor and Luthor that come in the 2nd pack.

    There's a simple solution to this question.

    If there are any Toys R Us employees who are members, please check the TRU computer system for the 6 digit SKN number for the DCUC Vs MOTUC Two-Packs. Once we get that SKN number, it would be possible to have your local TRU stores do inventory checks or look for a possible release date.

    Thanks.

    True; I was going by what Pixel Dan said, so I figured it couldn't hurt to keep an eye out and at least start a thread.

    Pretty close indeed--I've been meaning to find out who's in the NY area so we can all meet-up...going on TRU runs for these two-packs sounds like a good way to start things off!

    Frequently with toylines, those dates given are saturation dates: the time when a vast majority of stores should have received the product. depending on TRU's distribution, some stores may get it earlier.

    I guess I'll see any of you at TRU when the 2-packs come out. Let's keep it civilized and no pushing or shoving ok?

    A very good friend of mine's girlfriend works at TRU part time and she keeps us up to date on all the lastest figures that are in stock and/or put on the floor. Soon as I get any info I'll let everyone on the org know. I never would have thought the hunt would be related to MOTUCs.

    With the Toys R Us in my area, it probably will be April by the time they realise they should carry one on the shelf. And it will be just one, which will sell before I manage to get there.

    They're supposed to be on an endcap right? Doesn't corporate basically tell the stores how the end caps should be displayed.. Monthly.. or weekly? I think that's how Target does it.. but not sure about TRU.
