edited February 2013 in Shopping USA/Canada
So I was just at my local TRU for some StarWars, when to my surprise, on the shelves, already were the Series 3 Planets and the Iron Man 3 Iron Man vs manderian: ultimate showdown. Now I left the planets alone so idk about those but it was BOGO 1/2 off so I got the Iron Man (no Seaport Battle or MMA though) and they said they couldn't sell it till the 1st. I read the news on the homepage and it seems a bit early, I mean a whole 2 months before the movie comes out?
What do you guys think?

    If they can't sell them yet, while did they put them on the shelf?

    ^I was with my mom (I was getting birthday stuff) and they just happened to be there. I was amazed by it! And actually my mom said tht all the way out of the strore, so then I had to explain to her about resellers like TRU and stuff- but my bday isnt until June (I collect early to maximize potential) and it was a 96 piece set I didnt care

    ^ You are over 18, aren't you @HarryPotterLover? It's a requirement of the forum.

    Just because he goes shopping at TRU with his mom means he isn't over 16? lol ;-)

    @HarryPotterLover Over 18 collector- she couldn't possibly keep track of what I had- so if she wanted to get me somthing I wouldn't just use for parts (no more parts until I finish sorting what I already have Xp) so yeah, just helping her out :)

    I hope I see them soon. The Seaport Battle will be mine on sight. I needs me some War Machine minifig action!

    My TRU received these sets today but they are marked do not put on shelf before March 7 (might be off a few days on the date), although many other Iron Man toys are OK to sell now.

    I feel releasing new sets should be more coordinated that what they hav, but if people are able to get sets early, here here!
