TRU dropping micromaster 2 packs and battlemasters?

Not sure if this is the right board for this (If so please let me know so I can move the post if its in the wrong area. An acquaintance of mine who works at TRU told me that the SKU's for the micromaster 2 packs and the battlemasters have been changed from A(active status) to X (Orders stopping) basically discontinuing that line in store. He could not find a replacement SKU so it looks like nothing past wave 1 will be on the shelves.

Not surprised really. They haven’t been flying off the shelves at all. My Walmart’s and tru’s just have pegs and pegs of them.

We've seen this sort of thing before, and in time they almost always get them. The quantity may be low and some items rare so you either jump if you see something, or you hope that it'll be one that will have decent stock.

I am pretty sure that's not because they are no longer stocking them but more because they are doing that with all toys this month for their system conversion. TRU is converting from old legacy systems ran by the old US company to new systems controlled internally. So you telling us this now makes sense.

Totally agree with you Maple. My local TrU told me no new truck arriving for at "least" 3-4 weeks for this very reason.

Didn't this same thing happen back with the TR Titan Masters?

TRU only stocked the first two waves and promptly ceased stocking TMs - we had to go to WalMart for waves 3 & 4 (and everyone knows about Ramhorn's ill-fated wave 5)

Yes, this is the most important point. Siege Reflector/Refracktor will than only be obtainable at the full retail price of $90. Thatís an expensive non-working camera.

Not only that, any of our rainchecks issued under the old SKU system would be rendered completely useless. Hope they still honour them if that's the case.
