Thanks mate.

Popped into my local TRU after work today. The Marvel banner I wanted was sold earlier today. But I got the other Marvel banner. $150 less 25% off. Sweeeet.

EDIT: I nearly took home the MLP banner... for my niece. Nearly...

Lego banners had the 'Not for sale' sign. Looks as though Lego doesn't want their displays in other people's hands.

Strange. The TRU staff took the banner down & it went home with me.

All the card board ones are around $25.
I only paid $150 for mine (discount wasn't allowed to be applied as the money was going to the liquidators directly as opposed to being included in stock sales and had to be processed differently) and got a second panel (no Transformers on it but part of the display). The minute I said I would take it they took it down for me and gave me the whole thing poles and all! Only thing people couldn't take were the shelving that was still in use pretty much!

Interesting that different stores are charging differently...

Interesting I'll be calling them tomorrow and asking if I can pick it up since you guys managed to get yours. I guess different stores have different debt amounts to pay.

Some are giving the cards stuff away for free. I got a thomas the tank display card for my son for free.
I was told that each line of toys comes with a promotional
Display kit and alot of staff take them home at the time and its not just TRU its kmart target etc.

TRU Werribee - Was told by a staffer the whole fixture & fittings of the store were spoken for by another company (Minus the Movie Prime statue which will be returned). So none for sale.

Shame, there were some nice Marvel banner & massive display boards.

TRU Parramatta and Penrith in NSW are still only doing 30% off action figures.
As for banners, well I didn't personally go to Penrith so couldnt say but I did go to Parramatta and only saw generic TRU banners, nothing Transformers, Marvel etc related.

Sounds like that store will be around for a little while more.

TRU Werribee (VIC) is 40% off toys, though nothing to show for it.

Toys R Us Highpoint is pretty cleaned out too. (Action figures are 30% off)
Well, except for TLK Hound
They have LOTS of TLK Hound...

Havenít been able to track down a Studio Series Thundercracker yet. Hopefully I managed to snag one
