1. We can't sell them until we remove the label from them
2. Not selling fixtures until all stock is gone

Rather annoyed since they were advertising them at the front of the store.
Were the 2 MP Barricades still hiding on the top shelf?

Didn't look like it, all the Studio Series was gone, and I did try finding Barricade, I found Rodimus at the price scanner, so unless they're in other aisles, seems they're gone.

Problem is, stores aren't going to stay open for very long when the toys are gone.... and some stores have been closing up before all the stock is gone, with the remaining stock being shipped to the nearest open store.... so telling us to wait could mean missing out if they suddenly close up due to being able to break out of their lease early. So we might not get much time to grab those sorts of things.

Nah. I don't do Movieverse. I was in at Garden City yesterday morning and was tossing up whether to post it here. In the end I figured it would just attract the scalpers without daytime jobs.

Yeah... it looks like all of the MP Barricades are now gone at the Garden City store, as I couldn't find any this morning.

Toyworld Macgregor (Kessels Rd), had several cases in of the TF5 Movie Deluxe wave 3 and 4 toys (wave 4 is actually just Cogman with wave 3... so plenty of Strafe, Crosshairs and new Bumblebees)... and all on clearance for $25 each.
Plus, the Movie Leaders (only had Megatron at this store) are on sale for $49 until August 3rd (Mr Toys Toyworlds only).

Heaps of Rescue Bots there now as well.


The TK Maxx next door didn't have any Ramhorns (which have been found at a store in NSW), but did have some cheap Rescue Bots toys (the animal "Minicons" and the T-rex Optimus Chomp trackset with the red Morbot).

Over 20 units of Studio Series Thundercracker at TRU Aspley. RRP was $49.99, so $30 at the 40% clearance price.
