Re: GI Joe Classified Python Patrol Bat Released Canada

I have ordered from them twice and was never charged a duty or an import fee. Takes a bit to get to Canada but, as was said before, it is still cheaper than TRU.

Re: GI Joe Classified Python Patrol Bat Released Canada

I managed to get the Python Viper and TF Outback. Every single time, when they were in stock, I would do online pick up and every single time they would cancel it.

This was at two different TRU stores as one had Python Viper and the other had TF Outback. After about a week of them cancelling my Python Viper order, I went to the store. I guess they just put them out as there was a full case of Python Vipers.

Same with Outback. After they cancelled it for like 3 days straight, I went to the store and they must have just put it out as well as there was like 12 Outbacks.

I get the sense they are cancelling and not letting people order online for in-store pickup or maybe both times, I was just lucky and they didn't know where they were and I just happened to show up the day they found them and put them on shelf.

Still need the Python BAT though.

I'm still paying $36 for figures on Amazon and EBGames.

Just typical TRU disorganization, how they ever survived is a miracle.

Re: GI Joe Classified Python Patrol Bat Released Canada

To be honest mgmt and what they call team leads are cancelling any or most pick up at store as they don’t want to deal with collectors. They are now categorizing a lot of figures under collectables rather than action figures.
They are tired of multiples, box condition, and selection. Example local TRU store had pp bats in stock. Ordered pick up at store gets cancelled, employee shows picture of 12 pcs or more in stock on FB in other action figure groups. Than taking orders on the group if ppl send him etransfer for him to pick up immediately.

Plus the No returns is a real thing on action figures at tru.

But that’s my experience lately.
