Toys R Us Has The Full Movie Displays Up *WITH PICS*

Postby Skowl » Wed May 30, 2007 5:16 pm

When I stepped into my local Toys R Us, I got a huge surprise: they had the whole Transformers Movie figures set up at the entrance. When I saw it, I just stood there in complete amazing at the amount of stuff they had. I've never been to a TF convention, and don't know any fellow collectors in person - so this was by far the most Transformers stuff I had ever seen in one place.

In short, it was a beautiful thing to behold.

They even had two digital screens playing the theatrical trailer on a loop... I must have looked like a weirdo standing there watching it constantly for what felt like a half hour.

Here are some pics for all to enjoy and drool over as I did!

Update: Seibertron member zedman also found this new display (with backings not seen in my photo) a few days ago, and sent us some photos which you can see below:

What, no, my pants do not have a wet spot on them sir!


Anyway, gosh do I hope my TRU sets something up like that. I will be all kinds of happy.

Saturday can't come soon enough!

Hopefully my TRU replaces the Spidey 3 aisle with a display this awesome. Might have to go there to just drool.

I have a ton of movie toys already, the six real gears, all of the deluxes except Swindle, all the voyagers and leader class Optimus Prime but if I saw that I would still spend a small fortune.

It was great to see, that's for sure. My only complaint is the prices. Our Canadian dollar is pretty strong now, yet I still pay about 40% for everything. Leader Class Prime is over 90$!! and the Movie Legends are almost 10$ each, it's ridiculous.

Plus, I'm a student which sucks. This movie-summer is only gonna happen once, and I'm gonna have to content myself with a few deluxes and Real Gears...

Updated with zedman's pics, and front paged since I don't think we've seen the official displays before.

Hopefully it's just a Canadian thing...

I noticed there's no Megatron in the Leader Class section, yet someone just bought him and Prime at a Target either today or yesterday.

Here's to hoping Megatron *WILL* be released.

In the words of Charlie Brown. AUGH!

Here comes my first step into debt. I only want about....$100 of figures. My Helmet and Leader Class Prime making up half of that...Well actually more than half.
