    well i went and checked it out. everything seemed legit, ALL prices were cut 30-40 and up to 80% all tho you had to hunt down a piece of paper taped to the rack and search the "original price" and then scroll over to "your discount". there were no big ticket items like gaming systems, electronics etc. there were cheap drones, some bare shelf's (even those were for sale) but it kinda looked like they had inflated the original prices?? either way i asked a checker and there "doors are open until everything is sold" and then she says "deeper discounts are entirely up to the liquidators".

    All stores are to be closed by Friday. I went in to 2 different stores yesterday and today. Both stores were barren and had 99% of the store empty and gutted. Had basically nothing.

    This is my favorite place to stop by, when I was young. I still remember how I tend to be a drama queen just so my Mom can buy me a new toy.

    Oh well. We can't live in the past. They screwed up. They died a well deserved death. I probably didn't step foot in TRU more than once a year, if that, and when I did, I pretty much always left disappointed. Adios. I won't miss it.

    I honestly don't think I've been in a Toys R Us since the late 90's, so this is no big loss for me. Even then, it wasn't my ideal place to go buy toys, though I did get the POTF series one stuff there, more than anywhere else. Wish I still had them, I remember the first run for Luke, Vader and Obi Wan had ridiculously long light sabers. Subsequent runs had more proportional lengths. I still occasionally look for those first run long saber, MOC. Don't ever find them and I'm sure my experience sold them for nothing.

    Yesterday I drove by our closed Toys R Us. I felt like I needed an artifact...something tactile that I can reference when ever I feel nostalgic. I wanted a sign or something that actually said TRU, but the place has been closed for a month. I drove around back and I hit the jackpot!

    That’s probably exactly what his wife wanted to know when she saw him unloading them at the house.

    Yeah, that took a bit of explaining. Have you seen what these things are going for on eBay?! I'm restoring them and I'm sure at some point I'll sell a couple. But they're great in my garage for storage and moving crap around.

    Don’t hold out too long. Capitalize on the sadness and nostalgia that people feel right now, before that buying impulse fades.
