Some info on 30303 Joker Bumper Car
Since these never showed up at any Toys r Us around me, having also dropped off their site, and their customer service saying the set is now nowhere in their database I decided to do a little research. Armed with the UPC number, I went to Target since they're the only mass retailer were I regularly find Polys. A manager looked up the number and it was in their system as a vendor placed building set, meaning when it shows up it'll be found in their check lanes. With these sets already being offered on ebay! And the seller I asked saying they weren't bought at TrU, I'm thinking they should be showing up soon.
I wish I'd thought to get the DCPI number, but the knowledge itself is great so I don't have to keep spinning my wheels in vain elsewhere. Hopefully, this info can help others out as well! Sorry Canada! Hope Target doesn't close up shop too soon for you guys to see these!

It should be 9 total in the format: 000-00-0000.
It is interesting that Target can get them too. It will be a sought after bag, and my guess is it will appear around the same time as jokerland comes out, but that is just my guess.
I can only imagine that Lego and Amazon may just have a promotion (i.e., buy $50 Lego get ____ free) since Amazon probably moves as much (if not more) Lego as TRU. (Just a gut feeling here...)
When I worked for them, I heard that multiple times from customers. That and the fact that TrU was a last resort when they couldn't find it anywhere else. There's just little incentive to make it your first stop for most people. For a company, I would think its bad to be known first for having high prices.
It saddens me, because I'd rather buy from Toys r Us than from Target because of customer service. It just doesn't make financial sense to do so. With the volume of LEGO they stock, if there's any discount for bulk product they'd surely be getting it, so it comes off greedy to knowingly ask $10-20 more for the same set as a competitor.
I have mixed emotions about the change in distribution from certain polys being TrU exclusive, but at the end of the day it'll be a more convenient change if that's in fact what it is.
I went to another TRU & they gave me no hassle at all with the "freebie" so I no longer go to the stingy TRU . Your shelf prices should not be 10-30 dollars more than your own website prices either:smiley:
