My TRUs had them BOGO Friday and had all other TDK merch. 25% off. The manager told me that theyre clearing out all their TDK merchandise to make make room for the BATB and DCU stuff. I find it funny that this past summer we couldnt find any of this stuff now stores are practically giving it away.
My TRUs had , no lie, close to 100 Movie Masters, most were in one of those wire bins, and there was not one chase figure. I could have sworn Mattel stated in one of their Q&A's that they were going to continue shipping them with the new assortment cases.

Think about it... they weren't on the shelves because the Toys 'R Us employees snagged them up as soon as they came off the truck. When I was in high school, I worked at Best Buy stocking new products. If something was shipped to the store that we wanted, was in high demand, and was pretty rare, we held it off in the back and never even gave anyone a chance to put it out on the floor. I would imagine that an employee of Toys 'R Us would know what is hot and what would bring in considerable money on eBay, and is doing quite the same.
...and maybe they're like us... huge Batman fanatics.

I worked at TRU briefly in the late '90s, and there were actually employees who were FIRED for not putting new product on the shelf. I myself came close to getting the axe for trying to hold onto the Playmates (I think) Star Trek OS Enterprise Bridge Set. We happened to get one in on payday, and I simply tried to keep it in the back until the end of my shift when I would have purchased it. Very nearly lost my job that day.
Instead I was fired three weeks later for hurling expletives at my manager on the sales floor. Not one of my better moments, to be sure.
