Sold Out PotC

I just got back from my TRU, picking up the new Creator Lighthouse, and noticed that they had pulled all of the Isla De Muerta PotC sets from the shelf. No other sets were sold out or missing, they had all of the newly released summer sets, but not this one. I thought this was pretty odd, anyone else experience this??

    Was at multiple TRU's yesterday and each one had every POTC set with the exception of Queen Anne's Revenge. Also my local WalMart was the same way.

    ^^ Which country was this? The TRU I visited earlier today (in the UK) had all of the regular PotC sets on the shelf, including the Isla De Muerta set.

    How do you know if they were pulled vs sold out and not restocked? All sets are stocked in my area.

    Maybe they're opening up each box and replacing the deceiving gold pieces? ;o)

    i hope so, i contacted lego about the deceiving pieces and they said thats what they intended sorry if box art was misleading. i was asked if they could send they nice gold bars from the bank and transfer set, but no such luck.

    Weird indeed. Finally saw QAR at Target today though for 119.99..$12 cheaper than TRU

    Mark it as a complaint on the webform - then they will send you them - like they sent me an extra policeman as the official image for the police boat shows 3.

    Funny that the Isla De Muerta PotC set on TRU site shows the gold coins and gold bar
    but all you get is the pearl color coins and bar

    Actually, according to this discussion on eurobricks, you can call TLG to send you chrome gold parts. Hopefully the next production run will come with these chrome gold bars

    I've emailed them a week ago and have yet to hear from them.

    I picked up 4181 - Isla De Muerta today. The bars and coins inside were all of the chrome gold variety.

    It would seem either they changed this mid-run, or they just used up all of the one type, before switching to the other.
