why is this ok?

Recommended Posts

They are more concerned with theft then selling to the collector market. Clearly they went overboard however I think given the minimal markup (compared to many other toys) they do need some serious loss prevention measures in certain markets.

While spider wrap sucks and does damage boxes, this looks like one of TRU's famous ship jobs that got returned to store.

Can someone tell me why TRU thinks this is acceptable, and to charge over MSRP on top of this? I hope TRU goes out of business soon!

Are u ok? Did you get a heart attack out of seeing that? :D

it is a rare sight to see any exclusive in my TRU.  Sad so sad to see the boxes that way.

I would be getting 20-30% off of Amazon shipping something like that to me.

Why? TRU needs that theft device on the box because you know, stealing a Tower Bridge is pretty easy. Slips right into my jeans before walking out the door. "Why no TRU employee, that isn't isn't a huge Lego set in my pants..."

Is that a Tower Bridge, or are you just happy to see me?

I shove LEGO sets down my pants all the time. I got the idea from Bad Grampa. Cashiers are too busy on their phones to notice. LOL

Insane, one day they will be gone, TRU can`t keep up with the way the consumer market is going. High/often insane prices, dirty stories, horrible customer service (much of the time), etc. Can`t say I`ll feel sorry for them. 

 

Because it's what's on the inside that counts.  Everyone knows this...especially ugly people.

Haha, comment of the day right here!!

You'd be surprised.  I used to work at a computer store and people would walk out with 32 inch widescreen apple monitors. They'd just walk up to the cashier as if they're going to pay and then book it for the door.
