30055 Vulture at TRU ... sort of?

Post by zak001 » Sun Oct 09, 2011 7:31 pm

Was in today to grab a few things to qualify for the week 2 magnet. (CMFs and plates FTW, I guess.) But I also found a lone 30055 Vulture polybag on the shelf, so I picked that up ... except there was some sort of beep when the cashier rang it up, she says "It says do not sell until the 23rd," and her manager said, "Yeah, you can't sell that to him." So they didn't. Anyone else had an experience like this at TRU?

I had a similar experience. My TRU had a lot of them, but when I went to purchase, the cashier could not sell it to me until Oct 23.

That's promising. At least you aren't going to be required to purchase them online and pay shipping.
I have mixed feelings about new releases: I can't wait to see and get the new sets... but I can't figure out where I'm gonna put them or store them.

Just a guess, but I would not be surprised to see them given away with an xx.xx star wars lego purchase on the ad for the 23rd...it is a Sunday which would be the last week of bricktober ad....

Did not pull the trigger @ $4.99.

Does the vulture droid comes with stickers?

I went to TRU last Friday and they had an entire bin full of them. My son wasn't with me, so I thought I would wait till Monday (Columbus day) to get it with him. Went on Monday and they didn't even have the bin there. They were nowhere to be seen. Perhaps now I know why!

I also saw these over a week ago, but decided to wait since they were $4.99. Then I went in on Tuesday and they were gone. I stopped in today to find out for sure if they were doing the Cars2 event tomorrow and saw one. I tried to purchase it and also was denied. I'm guessing they put the bunch that I saw earlier away and this was a stragler....

I still haven't seen these but was told that they were sold out already and that someone about 30 mins earlier had bought all of them up. :shock:

So I'll try one more TRU and see they have it but if not then its on something else...

That's very odd. I've never had anything like that happen to me before. Did they hold the item for you until the 23rd? :eh:

I went to my TRU yesterday to pick up my BOGO MF and Frigate and saw a ton of these in the return basket (in the returns area) :shock:

This was in the Sunnyvale, CA area.
