It's nice to read that. From a collector's standpoint, we need Toys R Us.

As a former kid, with kids of my own, we need Toys R Us.

Long Live Toys R Us!

This should have been posted in General Toy Talk. Not sure how it ended up in Diamond Selection. I guess I wasn't paying attention.

I love "TOYs 'R' US", but I wish they still carried JLU toys. :cry:

Maybe they will if Target doesn't pick up JLU after December...and maybe one day Mattel will let us know something.

Great to hear positive news from TRU!

Seems they've been competing pretty well on price, too. Anyway, I've been going out of my way and trying to buy at TRU if I have the choice. Been trying to pick up TRU exclusive merch as well.

They're still a bit pricey compared to Target, but they're doing much better compared to Walmart.

As a TRU credit card owner since '97, I really like TRU. If only my local one was better at carrying DCUC.

I've been doing the same things. Fans should reward TRU for branching out and picking up lines from some of the smaller manufactures.
