    You mentioned Power Rangers towards the end of the video. Well, Hasbro is going to get the toy license for that next year. They might even buy out the whole franchise according to some reports.

    Sad fact is, and I saw it personally this Christmas, is the family would go down toys r us, look at the toys, fond out what the kids want... And then leave and order it for 20% less at least online...
    That's how it's gone... Sad or not, it's retail today.. Maybe toys r us should have charged a cpupel of bucks for entry if you don't buy anything, that all I could think of that might have saved em... Have some stuff in there to make it worth it, a play area, ball pit etc...
    But it had deff become where you went to see the toys, but not where you bought em!

    It's not just that SW is losing it's lustre as a brand... It's the toys are shit! They obvs all sit around trying to think up ideas... When all kids want are models of the characters, ships and light sabers (not blade builder... Which is shit)... Maybe some radio controlled stuff in there, and all for sub 200 bucks... More than that, the kids are priced out and you are aiming at adults..
    But Disney have screwed the pooch above all by diluting the brand... Should be trilogies, with 2 years in between episodes, and maybe 5 years between trilogies... To keep it exciting, as it's already become a joke. Maybe consider a tv show as well, or keep the cartoons going, which by the way is currently more star wars than the movies... Clone wars and rebels are superb (And I'm a huge fan that hasn't despised any of the movies, except maybe phantom menace... Anyway.. I miss Lucas directing already, OK the films were mad, but that WAS star wars... Not they are just making science fiction adventure films... With SW branding)

    Heck, as a female, I have waltzed into any damn section I want in a store. I frequent the LEGO section, and I have bought a Bladebuilder (for costume purposes) for $15 that has been opened. I think it's a bit depressing that Star Wars killed Toys R Us, and that Charles Lazarus (founder of Toys R Us) died to. Such a depressing end to a dynamic brand.

    I wish I could have shopped at your TRU with the 5 cent price difference. Around me, it was always at least a couple bucks more than Target or Wal Mart, to say nothing of Amazon. The only time my local TRU was competitive is when they'd have "buy one get one 50% off" sales, and then they'd be about the same price as other stores. Assuming you still wanted figures from two waves ago, when they last stocked anything.

    End of an era. Great commentary, cheers. I'm not even into merchandise or anything, just the socio-historical aspects. I haven't even watched any Star Wars films since I saw a shitty pirate DVD of the one where Anakin falls into the lava in front of Ewen Whatsisname, haha. Just fascinating to see how the politics and other shifts are impacting this area. Made me a bit sad for the old days of the toystore too. Ah well, maybe a few Mom and Pop ones will reemerge.

    WOW Canadian TRU cleared Disney infinity years ago. Maybe that's why they aren't closing.

  • TruthAndMoreTruth

    When the company filed bankruptcy, they cleared out all of the distribution centers, sending all remaining inventory out to the stores to liquidate. A ton of inventory was dumped on the stores.
    You also don't seem to know much about why Toys R Us has failed. It has nothing to do with the assortment of inventory.
    One can clearly see that you have no idea how how a company liquidation works.

    Toys R Us is dying not because of Star Wars or anything that Disney is doing. It is because of vulture capital. They had a leveraged buyout saddled them a 6 billion dollars of debt. The very same thing that's killing iHeartRadio. For me the only difference is I won't miss iHeartRadio.

    I remember when star wars was the shit during when the clone wars came about. I used to be so excited to go to toys r us to see all the figures that would be on the shelf, desperately shuffling through the shelves to find that cool clone trooper, or other character. You would want. Seriously since Disney bought star wars the ONLY thing good that has come out was rebels and Dave filoni continuing work. Seriously we are in an age of utter bullshit

  • AnIrishMusician
    AnIrishMusician Day ago

    There are 3 big reasons why Toys R Us failed:
    1) Most of the toys suck/aren't fun for kids to play with.
    2) Most kids have video games and smart devices so cheap plastic toys seem pretty underwhelming to them.
    3) The adults who purchase toys still wouldn't be caught dead checking them out in a store if they can just use amazon.

  • 777the neighborofthebeast

    Jesus, don't you feel embarrassed walking around filming children's toys? Don't you feel embarrassed talking about politics in children's toys? Why the fuck do you care?!?! You're a grown ass man! No, I'm not a libtard. I'm not an sjw. I'm not any of your stupid labels. You can label me shocked at a grown man's anger towards a children's film and toy line. Save the speaches for your children and why they shouldn't want what you don't want them to have

    My nearest TRU is about 60 miles away and I'm sure they are closing down. However, they are likely just going to be loaded down with TLJ merchandise and leftover Rogue One/TFA toys, so there doesn't seem to be any point in making the 120 mile round trip drive just to see pegs clogged with toys I don't want.

    The other thing is that Star Wars is from your dad's (or even your grand-dad's) era. And it's just the same damn story over and over -- a ragtag bunch of unlikely heroes defeating the evil Federation. It's been done. There's no reason for anyone under the age of 40 to be hyped by Stars Wars today. When I was a kid in the '80s, I wasn't interested in old crap like Flash Gordon or Buck Rogers either. And yeah, I realize the Marvel characters have been around forever, but the "cinematic universe" is still pretty new and constantly unfolding.

    Let me lay out and honest take on the Star Wars toys. I am 42 and I have a 7 year old son. We are both infatuated with Star Wars together. I have been my entire life so I'm pretty much his influence. What I grew up with were action figures. I also had a few playsets - Death Star, Hoth, Ewok Village, Dhagoba, Millennium Falcon, Cloud City car, landspeeder, Speeder bike, etc. All these were customer for the 3.75" action figures. That's all they had. And that's what we wanted. That's the Star Wars toys that I know. Now fast forward 35 years. I don't understand most of the toys on the shelves. There is so much crap that my son is not interested in. I am not interested in it. I'm not really sure where are the manufacturers got these concepts that there's a market for them. If you look at those lightsaber builder sets. What's the point in buying ONE because you need TWO to have a lightsaber duel. The larger action figures are pointless. There's like four or five different sized action figures. If I remember correctly from my childhood, we would all get the main characters first - Vader, Luke, Han, Leia. There were plenty. it was only after that when they put out the secondary figures and you'd want to add to your collection. these new concepts like the Force Link feature is stupid. Why did the figures need that? All these other toys are so overpriced that parents just aren't going to buy them especially if their kids don't want them. you usually want what other kids have. And those parents feel the same way. so, just the basic action figures with some playsets is all that anybody even cares about. what I have seen in stores is Luke Skywalker, Kylo Ren, Chewbacca, and Leia rarely ever being in stock. These figures are not distributed properly. Why would you buy a Rose or Paige figure when you don't even have Luke or Kylo? There's a lot of people that really liked the movie. But, it's the toy concepts that just don't work.

    From my experience, the stuff I was interested in at the local Toys R' Us (usually action figures) were around 5% to 10% more expensive than the normal (non-sale) price at the local Targets. Yes, they "price-matched" but then, they wouldn't let one have the discount they give would have given if one were to use a TRU/BRU Credit Card on Thursdays. Also, TRU's are also waaayyyyyy slower in putting stuff out on clearance (they let them sit on the shelves for years instead of seven months to a year at the local Target). Their pricing (and stocking) strategy really did not compete well with the "Big Box Stores."

    Don't you worry my friend since they refuse to drop the price tags to sell those last pieces,you all will soon find out how those are cost inside a garbage can! Who cares actualy if the lucas products doesn't sell in the end of the day since the stores that are about to close & disney have earned their cash.The matter that should someone focus here is the fact that many people will loose their jobs and will search somewhere else.Though i don't know how is the job find situations out there it is still a shame that this is happening.And things like that happems because big companies such as this one oppening more stores than they can count having in the end clossing all of them.Can't wait for those clossing time exclusives they are gonna sell to their employees after all this! 100 bucks cheap toys??? Seriously you might give 100 or 1000 like some others give 20 but those are not prices for toys & such,most of those not worth even 10 especially those lightsaber builders.If they didn't had the lucas disney logos on them they would cost a penny or two!

    meh. I don't think this can all be tied into the existence of social politics being mixed into movies. that has always been a thing. It might be more relevant then not, but i also contest that this has a lot to do with numerous other variables that stack up to make the significant reason why toy stores are failing: this generation makes less money, has lots of debt, has little disposable income; physical toys are just not as interesting compared to the age of software products; etc. just coming up with some ideas, its irresponsible to just imagine this ALL come down to one thing.

And scorpion and reptile have switch out heads which is cool, I had gotten an ezio auditore from assassins creed brotherhood. Due to low amount of money I couldn't get the glider from the one mission you did for the inventions, than I also got a lot of Lego sets, halo figures, and even a lot of my star wars items that I love so much, so its sad seeing that I'll never be able to walk in a store like this and buy things like I used to its really sad

  • Christopher Negri

    I think a lot of the clutter really comes from over ordering and that Disney now releases 1 Star Wars film every year. The Last Jedi just came out in December and in May the movie "Solo" is coming out. Most stores are still sitting on stock from TLJ, Rogue One and Force Awakens. They are just making too muc stuff and doing it too fast.
    Back in 1978 when Star Wars toys were first made available, there was nothing like them. They also only came in about 1 or 2 sizes (3.75" and 12") so if a kid wanted Luke Skywalker, there was 2 options. Now you can get him as a Pop, a Lego guy, a Playskool figure, a 3.75" figure, a 6" figure, a 12" figure for a total of 6 different ways. People on a tight budget or a collector with limited space simply will not buy one in every design enough to help move all this product.
