Toys R Us Launches Revenge of The Fallen Figures!

I'm a Star Card member of Toys R Us and I received an email from TRU about the launching of the new Transformers movie figures today. Star Card members will get some gifts with the purchase of some toys. Being a big, biG, bIG, BIG fan I am, I would not miss this opportunity to go and get myself some new Transformers figures.

The launching event starts at 8.30 am. I figured at that early, not many people would go at the start of the launch. At least not the small children. So I went to TRU Subang Parade with my sister and reached there about 9.00 am. I was DEAD WRONG! As I entered the parking place I already saw several people about to go home with big TRU plastic bags filled with many, many Transformers figures! At that time I was afraid that the ones that I wanted will be long gone. Got into Subang Parade and head straight towards TRU and there it was, crowded with people grabbing the toys. As I suspected, the ones that I want were no longer on the shelves. The ones that I wanted were the ones must have or most wanted. Seeing that those figures were no longer on the shelves, I took two figures that were my second choices. Even those were left little on the shelves. After holding those two in hands, I waited in case the staff would bring out more figures and possibly the ones I want.

While waiting suddenly I saw one of the figures I wanted sitting on the shelf. Probably someone put it back. No one was going to take it so I quickly grab it and hooray, got one of two. I waited some more and hoping that someone would put back the other figure on the shelf so I could purchase it. And yes, my wish came through. Thanx to my sister for seeing this one guy about to put back the figure that I wanted. Before he got to put it I quickly asked him is he putting the figure back and he said yes. So I immediately asked him to give it to me. And yeay, he gave it to me and even polite enough to offer me the other toy he was about to place it back on the shelf but it was the one that I already have in hand. So the two figures I really wanted are in my hands. I only have the budget to purchase three figures so I had to put back one of them. The one that I returned I'm sure will still be available. At first I thought of only getting two figures, but since I had a budget that's enough for three then I thought might as well purchase three figures. And so I did.

So here are the three figures that I got:

Top: Sideswipe. Bottom: Sideways, Rampage

Rampage (Decepticon). Bulldozer.

Sideways (Decepticon). Audi R8

Sideswipe (Autobot). Concept Corvette.

Overall I'm pretty happy with these three figures. More addition to my collection. :)

P/S: Can't wait for the movie to see these guys in action. :)
