There are even bigger sales incoming for the closure of the Australian branches of now closed down storechain Toys'R'Us, as the 20-40% reductions we previously reported on has gone up to 30-50% store wide (note: only available in physical stores, cannot be redeemed online)!

This also means that those recent sightings of wave 3 and wave 2 resurfacing for Power of the Primes may come in handy after all, if you can make it to a store this month. If you do so, make sure to share with other local fans your finds, and happy hunting!

The date is July 26th, 2018; barely twenty-four hours ago. A final, heaving death-rattle escapes Toys R Us Australia. And that death-rattle is another increase to their closing down sales, boosting the minimum discount on toys up to a startling 50% off!

This means whatever Transformers are left on the shelves should be currently at half-price - MPM-5 Barricades should now sit at around $90, while Studio Series Thundercracker is priced at $25... if they're in stock at any given store, that is. It seems unlikely, given the urgent tone of the flier, that the discount will be increased any further at this point; but, then again, that chas seemed to be the case for the last few price-drops as well.

If you find yourself in the mood to do so, why not share your celebrations at this incredible (especially for Australia!) discount, and your eulogies for the once-titanic company, in the Energon Pub Forums? And of course, stay tuned to Seibertron.com for a wide variety of Transformers news, from sales to ciphers and everything in between!

Kinda bummed that I went and picked up an MPM Barricade and Studio Thundercracker on Saturday, just barely before the sale prices increased by a full 20%. Ah well, c'est la vie.

Perhaps tomorrow I shall make another trip after all - to buy another Barricade that I can re-sell and hopefully offset some of the cost; and to pick up another three Studio Thundercrackers. I'm going to have a squadron of Sweep-headed jets headed by a Cybertron Thundercracker homage, if it's the last thing I do! :lol:

Qwan, we New Zealand fans are highly envious - I don't think we ever had a single TRU branch anywhere!

Good luck grabbing some bargains!

Thanks very much - seriously, if you want a Thundercracker or an MPM Barricade (and if there's still some there) I'm sure we can work something out! :D

At the time I had stuff going on that was far more important but now it's really starting to sink in that they're gone and just how big a void there is.

Well, those fancy big ticket items you used to only be able to find at TRU are now at Target and Walmart, and for cheaper.


Other than that, the closing has had zero effect on me.

i used to love just being there.
seeing all the toys and kids.
and helping someone out who seemed lost or overwhelmed.
helping a grandma find exactly what her grandson meant.
showing kids and parents where to find Rescue Bots,
when other figures were far too complex for their 4 year old.

just getting away from this idiot world
whether i got something
or not.

;)

Toys 'R' Us may make a return. According to IGN Toys 'R' Us has canceled it's bankruptcy auction. What this means is Toys 'R' Us is planning a revival of the brand. Toys 'R' Us closed their doors earlier this year in the US. The Wall Street Journal has the details of their plan which includes opening and operating in person stores. Things seem to be early in speculation for now so we can't draw too many conclusions just yet. We here at Seiberton will be crossing our fingers that things turn out. We will give you all of the details as they happen.

I cannot stress how close to meaningless all this is. All they have is just a name they do not want to sell yet.

Also, seriously, do you anericans miss toysrus? Not the toysrus of your childhoods, i mean the store you could have walked into last year. Have your purchasing habits been affected in anyway since it closed?

All are welcomed to respond.

Honestly, I just miss it because it was part of my childhood. Every single time I went there it felt like Christmas. What I'm hoping for is that maybe they'll just transfer fully to an online business. Trying to go back to brick-and-mortar would most likely bankrupt them again. I just want ToysRUs back in some form.

I kinda do, next to KB Toys, as a pure dedicated toy store like you'd see back in Europe, only a lot bigger.

That said, it's not uncommon to reuse a personally owned trademark for a new start-up, but given the current state of affairs I wouldn't be surprised if they started small in a single area, and not go nation-wide from the get-go, or be the same as it once was.

I remember calling TRU when I was a kid pleading with them to open a store near me. :PRAY: The next year they did and I have been loyal to them since then. :-D Being CDN we are fine as TRU still exists here, but for you down south I hope its Phoenix will rise again. :yinyang:
