Blind Bags now at TRU
« on: February 12, 2012, 05:16:26 PM »
Not sure if anyone has mentioned this yet. If it has already been said I apologize!  :P


I was in the desperate need for blind bags for customs and WalMart has not gotten any more in yet so I was just going to take a drive to our Toys R Us ans buy the 12 box set that they have. When I got there they had what looked like a brand new set of blind bag ponies there. I had my free choice of whatever pony I wanted instead of having to pick out the leftovers.


They were at the TRU in Saginaw, MI and they were $1.99 each.
Has anyone else seen them at their TRU? If so please share!

It was a nice surprise when I walked into TRU and saw them. :) I couldn't figure out where the numbers were, so by complete chance I got the one I wanted.

That was lucky! It is at the top back of the package near the hanging tab on the right hand side.

I think the numbering system was a little different from the tab, though. D: I tried to count them and I got most of the ponies wrong.

That or I can't count. :P

TRU was the only place I could find any. Both Walmarts we checked either restocked blind bags rarely or were cleaned out immediately.

And I had no problem with the numbering system. Are you sure you found the right numbers on the bags?

Make sure your checking the right wave. Every  number I have checked has been correct (though only wave 3 in uk)

The way I worded that originally probably didn't make sense. When I went I did not have the number sheet with me so I just kinda guessed based on counting the ponies shown on the box tab. I believe a couple of them did not match up with the actual numbering system, which would make sense anyways.

When I got home and checked their numbers with the actual reference sheet they matched up with the ponies I ended up getting, but when I was at the store it was pretty much a blind guess. XD

Ok, I've been out of the pony loop for awhile. What number system are you talking about? Is it posted somewhere on here? I would love to snatch some of these if I can find them, they look really cute! ^-^

On each little blind bag there is a little number under the flap that indicates what pony is in the bag.

I have another image that shows where to find the numbers, but it was from some other pony site and it looks like I can't link to it.


EDIT: Here you go, found it linked somewhere else http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-qRxmlDk3yOc/TcnJNy-0ZOI/AAAAAAAAEV0/IefNYQDIHxk/s1600/130505690574.jpg

Oh man, really? Finally. I couple weeks ago I went to TRU and they just had the collectors set. I'm so glad. Maybe I can get to it next week... but I really hope they come to Target, I go to Target much more often so I hope that if they're at Wal-Mart and TRU, they get to Target as well.
Siggy coming soon possibly~

I saw the number after I opened it. Since I knew what I was looking for, I was able to find it right away.

Can anyone tell me a number or something for the blind bags in the TRU system?

I am sooooo tired of going to my local TRU and just seeing an empty shelf under the MLP sign week after week. -_- I've been looking for these blind bags for over a month and only found a couple at Walmart once. So far no Walmarts have restocked.

I'd like to just call my TRU and ask them if they have the item, like I do with Walmart. I have the Walmart UPC code, is there a similar code for the item in the TRU system?

(Oh, and where were the blind bags found in the TRU? On the shelf with the other ponies, or up front near the check outs where they have all those small toys and Pokemon cards, etc.?)
