Still refilling the case H's in the Big Apple. It's great to get more Rips, Snot Rods erc but I can't wait until we start getting Super Chase cases East coast style.

Found 27 cars in a sad looking cube today at one of my TRU this morning. I wasn't even sure why it was still there lol  Anyway, I took one to the front to see if they had any more as I see super cool things have been popping up at TRU in other states.  She said …"um … yeah … looking like we have about 125 in the back." Surprised I JUST ABOUT PASSED OUT!!!  WOWSERS!  I asked if they were going to bring them out to restock the cube … she replied with, "I don't know, but if you want, I can call someone to come help you."   I quickly replied with "YES!!!!!!"

 

I ran over to meet another nice employee by the boy's toys and I told her I would love to see what they had in back.  She replied with, "sure I will bring them all out for you, if you like."  Again I replied with "YES PLEASE!!!!!" 2 minutes later she came out with 2 Cases … then a minute later another case … and a minute after that 2 more cases …. WOW!  It was like a Kmart Day in TRU!! LOLOL  Laugh

 

It was GREAT to see new car at this TRU for the first time in a while.  Turns out all the Cases were Case H.  I told her I would fill the cube for her as a thank you for bringing them out.  It took me about 10 minutes to fill that and then 2 pegs in the main aisle.  I told her all these cars would be gone in a weeks time.  3 people bought from them as I was "stocking." lol I did pick up a few Francesca, Rip, Snot Rod, Donna, Flo, and Victor for trades and some overseas folks I help, but left a couple Chase Francesca AND Rip in various places on the Cube so that kids might find them when they come in today!! Smile

 

I have to say, this was probably the best experience I have ever had at a TRU with TRU employees.  It made me smile, and I am sure others will smile too! Cool

Case H is way better than any older stuff!  Excellent pickups man.

I was at Walmart last week.  Saw pallets in the middle aisle so tore through them like a mad man.  Found 3 Deluxe Case E's and a Two-Pack Case B.

Snagged two Francesco Fan Maters and pegged the rest. 

Heck I'd go in for free once a week and stock just to have them full of Cars! 🙂

Good to hear.  My experience at a TRU this morning had some similarities but not great results.  There were barely any Cars on the pegs, so I took one to the front to see if they had any more.  She said "we have more in the back" and called someone to grab a case.  The guy came out with a previously unopened Case A… all the Sarges, LMQs, etc. that you could want.

I had two TRUs in an area that I was going to today.  Went to TRU 1, and of course nothing new, while there a customer said the other TRU just opened a bunch of new cases with Super Chases.  Eeeek!  He was a Hot Wheels guy.

I asked the first TRU to check their system, and they had 93 in their inventory and none of the floor… so he cleared the system so a new batch should be coming.

Went to the 2nd TRU and found the new cars, but only 1 Hiroaki, they probably had 6 to 8 of each new super chase.  Oh well.  🙂

Has anyone attempted to buy a case through TRU? Would a manager let you do that?

Yep. Have bought many full cases from TRU or been allowed to open cases and take what I want. The manager has rarely been involved.

At least you were able to get 1.  It must be from all the good Cars-ma generated over the weekend.

Found a case H hidden on the pegs (the cube was all common cars) in Myrtle Beach while on vacation.  Very surprised as there are a lot of toy resellers just down the street.  Francesca and my very first "in the wild" Rip.  I nearly fainted!
