My TRU had the Iron Man vs. Fighting Drone and the Robin polybags for $4.99.

I've heard chat that the Robin poly 30166 is part of a TRU promo. If it's a promo, what exactly is the promo? If it's 'for sale' where are you (what state/country) and where in the store were the bags? I'm trying to find the Robin & Redbird Cycle with no luck - my local TRU haven't a clue about it (I'm in So Cal, USA).
So, did your local TRU actually never even run the promo…? If so, hmm…
I did go back to the closest TRU to me today, and looked, and looked.... the only promo going on was build a Joker Mini Mech Bot and the only give away promo was the 5-pack minifig deal with a $60 purchase. I finally spotted some polybags (Friends and Super Heroes #30167 near the customer service counter, so I asked if there were more poly bags anywhere. The employee said she had a box under the counter and that I could look through it, and there was one bag #30166 the Redbird Cycle which I bought for $4.99.... so I'm happy.
Until right now I still wasn't even sure what the promo was supposed to be. But since I got back home I checked online and the TRU website is advertising for today only #30166 and #30167 with any $20 purchase.
It's a total crying shame. It really is. Especially when TLG seem to have largely accepted that the figs are driving licensed set sales these days, yet they pay no heed to the wonderful designs in the videogames. I mean, in production terms a fig is just a fig, no different to any CMF.
It's a shame they don't/can't use cuussoo or something similar before ditching a license, just to see what fans would like to see made before it gets dumped.
Sorry for OT bit.

I'm getting fed up of Spiderman too. When will we get X-men or Fantastic Four??
X-men are due...
But, X-Men is where it needs to be at. There is an enormous wealth of characters to plunder, theres some classic sets you could create (X-wing plane, Xaviers mansion, Weapon + set, danger room sets which could be expandable, a Sentinel set with a brick built sentinel etc), the opportunities are huge. Considering they have only made one proper X-men set, and one limited edition figure (Phoenix), its daft they havent made at least another few.
Heck, even the best known ones would be an easy sell. Cyclops, Beast, Storm, Xavier... throw together a basic Superhero scene which is what they seem to be going for a lot, stick a few of those characters in and it would sell like hotcakes.
Although not a fan of the blue/grey Batman that does look nice, much nicer IMO than the previous darker versions.
So that fig is right up my street.
Just wish they'd do the whole cast of heroes in that style. I mean, how many moody black-cowled scowling Robin's do we need? Let's get some colour in these heroes! Otherwise everyone just ends up in black, and how dull is that?
Happened to catch the last 2 episodes. Good watch for any comic book fan.
Yes, I know LEGO is targeted towards the younger audiences but I can dream and desire.
Flash's head suffers the same fate as Cap's, still a great figure though!
Truly optimal would be to have the bat symbol from the [i]DKR[/i] set on a a torso otherwise styled like the one with the yellow oval, but that would require a new print, so that might be a little greedy of me.
The Arkham Origins suit would do nicely as suggested by @legodude too.
