Good news for Canadians! Their TrU is here to stay!

:frolic:

There was a TRU Exclusive set of Hatchimal Colleggtibles that I was worried wouldn't make it to the US but popped up at Target. I bet now that there's no US TRU to supply the Canadian TRU stores with exclusives they will be where you guys get our Target exclusives.

How's the stock at US TrU's? I haven't popped in for about a month.

I'm not pleased. I was extremely excited to maybe pick up some equestria girls and maybe some of the newer brushables..ended up getting some descendant dolls instead

oooohhh I wonder if some of the toys that were planned to be exclusive to TRU US but were never released, will show up at TRU Canada.. that'd be nice, there's a TRU exclusive Funko blind bag I've been keeping an eye out for and I've been wondering where it'll turn up.

I thought Funko redistributed most of their TRU exclusives, with the ones that they couldn't find an alternative channel ending up on their online store?

Hmm. Just had another look and it looks like the exclusives I was referring to (the Nicktoons Mystery Minis) are on Funko's website.. at least, the picture matches up. (edit - yup, they're on eBay.. for $30+ a pop. Damn it!) Cool. Was there an announcement about this anywhere? I hadn't seen anything on their blog about it.

Either way, that's nice to know; I was worried about those.

Visited my local store last night. They're up to 60-80% off and there was a sign up that said "Final 8 Days".
Really wasn't a lot left, the pony section was very picked over and they caution taped off the back of the store and moved everything forward.

I wouldn't get too hopeful for physical locations. It's more likely they will do what Circuit City did and only exist online.

Well... I'll believe it when I see it.

Went to a Halloween store on Monday that was a BRU :/ it felt so odd since all the signage was up, and the makeshift "Halloween and toy store" randomly in the middle with make shift shelving and like 70% of the lights were turned off.

Well, I don't expect them to get back on their feet immediately. And certainly not anytime soon in the next few years. We'll wait and see.

My store has also been taken over by a Halloween/toy store.
