im going to skip the reflector most likely, unless they look really good in person.

I picked these up off ebay a while ago and quite satisfied with them (although they are more legends scale)

Yes, I hope so too. It's a nice balance to walmart's system.

Re: TRU dropping micromaster 2 packs and battlemasters?

I was informed about the 'system upgrade' at TRU as well.


I have no knowledge or details, but I suspect that the ability to 'buy a Wave 1 toy SKU and keep it for Wave 2 stock with same SKU to exchange' may be disappearing.


Every other store uses the barcodes to distinguish items and even TRU USA switched to that method years ago...

The US TRU had SKUs too, isn't the idea here that these are the same systems and they are changing them?

We saw a presentation leaked from them right before their bankruptcy which said that reducing the number of SKUs was to be one of their main goals as they try to stay afloat.

Re: TRU dropping micromaster 2 packs and battlemasters?

I was thinking more along the lines of how they print products on the receipts.


US TRU had switched to barcodes numbers per product on receipts years ago. Maybe it was still SKUs of products behind the scenes, but the last US vacation I had before TRU closed, all TFs bought were listed by barcode number. You couldn't buy OP and return a Megatron for him like we can still do here.

Re: TRU dropping micromaster 2 packs and battlemasters?

Do you think wave 2 will hit TRU within the next 2 weeks? If not I have to return 3 deluxes that I was planning on exchanging...

With the system change, they wont be receiving any new stock for a little while, at least the next 2 weeks.

Actually, I like the Papatoys "reflector" BECAUSE it is legends scale. The original Reflector was smaller in the TV show than a deluxe (e.g. Starscream) the PPT version fits right in. $90 official version?

No thanks, I'll let the rest of you fight over them. Happy hunting.

If this SKU thing you guys are talking about is going to wreck ability to do swaps, this is gonna SUCK

TRU used to be best for this, way more lenient than WM, whose policy flip-flops depending on if the old Returns grandmas decide to hate you or not that day
