They are already on sale?  Didn't they just come out?  I guess TRU wants to either get rid of the stock fast (with the movie pushed back) or it's not selling at those prices.  Either way, they are still making a profit when they put stuff on sale, which means it was over priced in the first place.

I'm guessing that the promotion was already planned and the flyers printed before the annoucement that the movie and toys were pushed back. So it's going ahead as planned. Don't forget that it only been about a week since the news dropped. No way that TRU had time to change their game plan in that time.

It's good news, IMO. I'll be going to get the price adjusted later today. I'll be getting a good chunk of change back. I might pick up a couple more 3-packs. At 25$ for the best figs in the Ret line, they're a good deal.

BTW, my flyer says that the Delta vehicles (HISS and Ghost Hawk II) are also 5$ off.

how does the price matching work exactly?  Just bring in the reciept to their customer service desk?  Does it have to be within a certain date of purchase?  And Im guessing you dont have to bring back the product?

You just take your recipt to the customer service desk and say you bought this last week now it went on sale, they do there magic and give you the difference.

I missed the part about Delta vehicles.

For $16.99 the Hiss tank is now worth it.  ;)

Yes indeed.  It was nice to get back almost $30 on the figures and vehicle with the price adjustment.  Too bad that money went right back into more figures, another HISS and a Ghost Hawk II (see my rant about it in the Retaliation toys thread).

For me, I got $89 back in price matching... then spent another $30 on Spider-Man toys

Cool, I got back 98$ on price matching yesterday. Also, the girl at customer service was really cool. Three of my receipts had uneven numbers of figures on them. She fixed them so that I could grab 3 more figures from pegs to get at 5.49$. I picked up a couple of Renegades Fireflies and a 30th Cobra Trooper.

This morning, I went to a different TRU and picked up another bunch of figures (Ret Joe Troopers, Red Ninjas and CC as well as 2 more 3-packs). I didn't come out on top budget wise, but I did get more bang for my buck  ;D
