    When I found the Christmas tree it was in the top of a blue cardboard display of stocking stuffer toys.

    Went to two TRUs today in the Twin Cities

    First one was Maplewood - they wouldn't sell the Bricktober sets (we're not supposed to) and would only give out the AT-DP as $30+ promo.

    Second one was Minnetonka (by Ridgedale) and was able to buy the Bricktober Bakery and TRU stores, and they had the AT-DP but only as a $30+ promo. It's weird, usually they sell those. Guy at CS said that they can't sell them while the promo is happening, so it should be for sale next week. I got it anyway for free so I don't care.

    No sign of C3PO at either.
    The Minnetonka TRU is my local store. They will be putting out the C3PO poly on Sunday

    @Russell844 Thanks! I saw that empty display today so I can live in hope :). I'd been checking every end cap because that's where the snowman was last year.

    I found a cookbook I'd been waiting for so at least it wasn't a completely wasted trip :).

    Found Azari polybag and the Ninjago mech at (Rivergate, Nashville, TN) TRU today, they wouldn't sell me the Ninjago one. They had dozens of the bricktober sets.

    Neither Barnes & Noble here had a Christmas tree, I looked in all available open boxes lying around to check too :)

     It's weird they won't sell you the Ninjago one since I asked the store I bought it from and they said it wasn't going to be a part of any Promo in the future.

    @Pumpkin_3CK5 something came up on the register when she scanned it, she didn't have to say anything as I easily recognize that look of confusion at this point :). 
  • iplanteiplante USMember Posts: 164
    @black_towr please don't snag them all.. :) Since the Bloomington TRU closed, that's the one I go to as well.

    That happened in the register too when I was trying to purchase it, but I guess the cashier was aware of what code to put in. Lol maybe the person that helped you was seasonal.

    @iplante I was only planning on getting 10-20 of them. They have 200 in stock so you should be good.

    Has anyone been able to snag the Ninjago Mech at TRU and if so do you know the product #?
  • Pumpkin_3CK5Pumpkin_3CK5 CaliforniaMember Posts: 763

    Lego store in Milwaukee had a whole lot of the moon rover polybag (not sure what it is called ) for sale....could this wind up being the next clearance deal like the eagle a couple years back?

  • krklintkrklint Member Posts: 500
    Great day at the ToysRUs in Rochester, MN. Anacondrai Mech and Azari poly on the endcap, and the red arm C3PO behind the counter. Best part, though the C3PO is a free with $40 purchase, the guy working let me buy two for $3.99 each (without any other purchase)! So C3PO is hanging out on the couch with my cat and I tonight :p

    Bought a $37 Friends set, and the TRU cashier told me the #30259 was only free with an elves purchase.  Another cashier backed her up, I said I must have miss read the promo. Went back to re-read it, tore it off the shelf and then brought the promo sign back to them, and asked them to read it.   The second cashier said to the first cashier, "just give it to him"...
    I cant print my response to them.....

    I tried 3 TRU.  and none let me buy the C-3PO
  • Prin12sPrin12s OklahomaMember Posts: 47
    My TRU (okc,ok) let me buy c3po, but didn't have any others. I looked but couldn't find the ninjago mech.  Any tips on where to find it?  I might try a different store today.

    In Los Angeles, the TRU at Oceangate would only give me 1 C-3PO with >$40 SW purchase (First Order Snowspeeder at 10% mark-up). While the TRU in Torrance gave me 1 free with qualifying purchase (First Order Snowspeeder at RRP) and then let me buy 4 additional polys at standard $3.99. Plus they had the AT-DP poly for regular purchase as well.

    But I did notice at both stores that the box of C-3PO polys was quite small, so not sure if this is a low limited supply or not.

    I think TRUs can get anywhere from 50-200 counts in boxes. I believe the ones near me typically get more around 200 at each store I think. Also I think the box size does not matter much, as there is little air in the packages and only 1 minifigure so I would imagine even a 'small' box has a lot of these in them.
  • scotty12scotty12 United States, IowaMember Posts: 685
    I would think/hope they'd get more in the 100-200count range if the promo is running until Nov. 21.  I was at my closest TRU 90minutes away and they let my buy 1 C-3PO and the Elves poly for $3.99ea.
  • black_towrblack_towr MinnesotaMember Posts: 165
    I guess I'm one of the lucky few to be able to walk in and buy as many c3po's as I wanted. 
  • teal93mr2teal93mr2 USAMember Posts: 936
    Doesn't look like the C3-PO will go up in value a whole lot due to plenty of availability, though I'd like to find one for my personal collection. I just wish the TRUs would be more consistent with how they dole them out. 
  • SithLord196SithLord196 Member Posts: 1,145
    No sign of C3-PO at my TRU. Not even a mention of it.

    Hmmm, usually there is a "girl" and a "boy" one. Here's hoping for Ninjago!
    last year walmart and target had different ones in their stocking stuffers. That would be nice...
  • madforLEGOmadforLEGO Chicagoland USMember Posts: 9,305
    TRU has been weird with their C-3PO promo. I went to a local TRU by me and they had them on a little tray on top of a table top like display of SW LEGO, and available for sale. Then a few days later my brother went there and there was no sign of the table and he had to go to the CS desk and had to pry two out of the employee at the desk even though they could be sold.

    According to someone on the Lego Reddit some time ago, it will be Ninjago!

    I don't think I've noticed this in previous years, but TRU.com has a bunch of recent polys and small sets listed as being available for store pickup in a few days. Hopefully this link will work...

    http://www.toysrus.com/family/index.jsp?s=A-StorePrice&categoryId=31151746&searchSort=TRUE&ppg=96

    My closest TRU told me they couldn't sell 3PO until Sunday, when the promo was "over". I know it runs until the 21st, but I left it at that. I'll just buy it when there's someone else behind the counter.

    In order to have them shipped to the store they need to be inventoried within the warehouse that supplies your particular region.  None of them are available in the NY/NJ/CT area.

    I'll stop by again, but what I meant is that the promo isn't even being advertised anywhere in the store.

    has anyone seen the pop star poly on the shelf?  All stores show plenty in stock, just wondering if they have been put out.
  • RebelegoRebelego Georgia, USAMember Posts: 171

  • ACWWGal2011ACWWGal2011 Member Posts: 534

    And hopefully we'll soon learn what Walmart will have.

    Not over at our closest. The holiday corner is about half Xmas coming in and the rest is empty shelves and Halloween Clearance. Tragically the empty shelves are mostly where the basket/shelf divider things for stocking stuffers go. 
  • Prin12sPrin12s OklahomaMember Posts: 47
    I'm a little bummed.  I think we already have both the target ones. They had them at the Lego discovery center when we went for my son's birthday and I picked them up then. 
    Oh well, duplicates for parts I suppose!

    I found the Popstar Poly at Roseville, MN SuperTarget today. I did not see a placeholder for a "boy" polybag. I also found the wishing well at Maplewood TRU.

    I can confirm on those polybags for Meijer.   Saw them out last Friday.  I am in northern Indiana.
