Toy R Us Fails Jan. 19th, 2013 @ 10:43 AM Reply

I went there the other day and couldn't find Freddy Krueger or Jason toys... Seems they only sell horror figues online only now a days. What happened? They didn't even have a big selection of toys at all. It seems Toys R Us is more of a Video game and Bicycle store now...

I would buy the shit out of that, along with all my Chinese girl figurines that I have scattered all over my house.

I was going to buy one of those when I last went to Toys R Us, but since it was during a Newgrounds meetup on the first day I decided against it. If it was the last day when heading home though I would have like I did with my cuddly Nala.

Did you really expect to find toys based on horror movies from a previous generation? How would something, that kids have no idea exists, generate revenue for a toy company?

"Action figure" was the name invented by Hasbro when they began their new 'dolls for boys' plan with the creation of G.I. Joe to help sell it as the name "doll" didn't gain enough interest in the male market. It and the genre were the only differences between the gender specific toys they created.

Because if you bother to get up and go somewhere you don't have to pay shipping and handling. Most of the times while products are cheaper online, I find shipping and handling bumps up the price higher than just buying from somewhere local at a higher product price.

Because looking for something specific and possibly wasting $5 in gas (or more) is definitely the way to go, seriously I save more money just getting something online than having to waste gas to find ONE specific thing. Sure it might be alright if you plan to get a bunch of shit, but otherwise I save the nit-picking for rush hour.

Honestly I hate shopping in malls, stores, etc... if I go anywhere I prefer a good ol' fashioned tavern, besides that yeah I do pretty much either stay at home or go to someone else's house. But then again, I just really hate people all together.

They generally have useless employees that they never hold onto for that long. Every Toys R Us I've walked into over the past decade has helped me like so, "Hi I'm looking for ______" long pause, "Uuuuh, let me check with my supervisor" disapears, so I look around some more, then find another employee. "Hi I'm looking for _____" this one seems genuinely interested in helping, hope? "Uuuhhh, let's look over here. Hmmmm..... Naaahp don't see it."

Yeah, Toys R Us is just a overpriced clusterfuck of shitty kids toys, I seriously only wanted a small Superman Figurine for an art piece I was doing, and throughout that whole store, not one superman, batman, anything. They had what looked like G.I. Joe knockoffs, which seemed less violent and kid friendly, made me sick.

They also turned me down for a job, their bad cuz I'm a great employee.

Electronics Boutique used to have some pretty legit action figures. From Armored Core (drool) to Final fantasy.

I haven't been to a Toys R Us since before I even owned a Nintendo 64.

Do they sell Gundams? What about Transformers Prime shit?

They hoped it would lower the percentage of creepy older men roaming the stores solo.

Yes they really are.

Has nothing to do with being lazy, but honestly knowing the Buffalo, NY community taking the bus probably isn't the best idea. Sadly the weirdo's can't keep to themselves, and I'd rather just shop online because in the end it's cheaper (and ultimately less of a pain in the ass.)

Cost efficient? Yes. Lazy? No.

You can argue with me that I'm just being antisocial, but do you want bums telling you about their time in "korietnam?" I'll pass... I'd prefer to spend my money wisely, besides with all the free shipping deals and price drops how could you go wrong? Only way to REALLY get a good deal with wasting money on transportation is to go to the flea market, sadly my weekends are usually taken up (or I've no reason to go.)

Then again it's funny how judgmental most people are when they're really no better themselves...

I still see this, but it isn't around the age of 8-10, it's more for the ages under this. My little brother, who is 6, plays with action figures and model cars.

My Freddy Krueger Figure that is statue like came in the mail yesterday and I love it! What do you think of it? I don't think this picture does it justice to be honest, and I believe it looks better in person and it definitely looks like Freddy Krueger from Dream Warriors.
