Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

My TRU holds to street a point. When the Episode I 3-D landslide of merchandise hit four months ago(wow, has it really been that long already?) the store held to the date until a little over a week before it hit, then went ahead and put up all the in-store displays and peg walls and stocked everything. You could snag almost all of the figures and other toys you wanted at least a week before the "mandatory" Hasbro street date while Walmarts, Targets and K-Marts still tended more often than not to balk and not put anything out until the 30th or just a day or two beforehand. More often than not if there's an official date for a line to be released TRU will be the first to break it.
