    I would've grabbed SW Infinity for $3, that's a pretty good price

    One less stop on my favorite day of the year. My wife and I still go shop at physical stores for Christmas for our kids; we send the kids to grandparents and make a day of it. I loved this stop because it was so much fun, like when my mom took me to TRU as a kid. Goodbye Geoffery.

    We fell off the timeline. I swear it's like a neo-USSR lsd fever dream in the US right now. There is nothing good anymore; the second you like something it offends someone. Toys R Us was a place where a very poor young me used to go and marvel at everything. Now it's dying an awful slow K-Mart death.

    -Before you read this I know exactly how you all feel about this place closing. I'm just as sad about it, however we can't just blame a whole group of people for not buying toys that are selling for very expensive prices. (Just recently I went in and there was a small Lego set box with only a 100 pieces for $20,00, keep in mind this was with a SALE!)
    By the way the main reason why they closed wasn't due to electronics and the Internet. What actually happened was in the 2005 leverage buy out. They had to owe a 9 million dollar price + rent. From this they were never able to pay this off and this led to their downfall. The other reason why they closed is they attempted to compete with Amazon and they stopped importing and exporting toys, so they ran out and no longer could compete with Amazon and didn't have enough to pay the people giving them the toys.

    I went to my local TRU and they had about 30 TFA 6" Finns on the shelves/pegs as well as a ton of blade builders as well.

    dude, if there was a lego store, id be up the wazoo with my kids about it! but i get you, i remember the good old days of going into a toys r us and getting toys from the shelve. being able to pick them out. now everything is online cause its easier for parents who are the ones who buy the toys. but i also think toys are us has some backround business flaws seperate as well as being a bit too big. i say instead of having a grocery sized stores, except in heavily populated areas, that they should be alot smaller. have alot of stuff but just not be massive. be awe inspiring. in like a family friendly area cause thats the key to keeping the nostalgia alive, keeping the folks happy. plus, make the toys more flashy. like how on chrismas some stores have toy trains operating for display and some robotic toys doing cool stuff. everyone likes seeing cool stuff. in my mall we have a store called brookstone where you can try out almost half of all their cool tech before buying it. a great selling point

    Even I like Toys R Us, it makes me so sad that it’s closing. I still have GameStop and stuff, but they had a great collectable section! I love 2nd and Charles and all, but Toys R Us is just such a special place to me.

    I'll never forget the pure joy that I used to get as a kid walking into TRU, running to the Jurassic Park section and seeing an entire aisle of toys stacked up as far as I could see. It was such a magical place and it's sad that my future sons or daughters won't get to experience that kid in a candy shop feeling that I had with TRU.

    That's the problem with people pushing the SJW agenda, they don't even buy the toys and I have the impression that they don't even watch the movies because worldwide people are not happy with Star Wars at this moment. Being honest I disliked the force awakens movie just as much as I disliked the last jedi movie

    Not surprised that Disney/Star Wars was selling poor lately, but damn, never knew it was that bad. At this point, having looked at Target and Wal-Mart and those Star Wars sections have been shrinking and could likely be phased out in the near future as next to nothing moves. Especially with Target, I can see SW toys hitting the Clearance end caps as they move onto something that sells more.

    They just sell a bunch of crap cheap shit to people. No quality whatsoever. I do believe the Lego Star Wars does sell because it's Legos lol but action figures, builders, mask, etc are just so cheap and stupid. I would buy the Star Wars figures if they were made by a well known quality brand like SH Figuarts but the ones they sell here are just so cheap and I don't even like the characters besides maybe Kylo Ren since I like the design. And not to mention everything in Toys R Us is so damn expensive. Their business is dead yet are giving us a 30% discount? How do they expect to get rid of their shit with such high prices and such low discounts? Like if ya'll about to go out of business at least go out with some dignity and give us big discounts and not try to milk as much money out of us before they go. lol

    Stunning, how much Toys R Us invested in all this SW/SJW stuff. This undoubtedly massacred their bottom line and bad business decision contributing to their collapse. So sad. These toys will have to be marked down to 90-95% discount and even then may not move. Thanks for making this vid. It graphically depicts their downfall.

    Seems like Lego is the only company that's not completely retarded. Sure they made those Lego Ideas feminist sets, but when it comes to shit that they're actually selling to kids, they keep girl stuff and guy stuff as it has always been. The Lego Ideas sets are more than likely just to make the press shut up after all the time they've shat on them. And it makes sense, since Lego is a product made in Denmark, a really not SJW country (probably the only one in Scandinavia). We'll see tho, Lego could more fall any time now. It *has* become super Americanized over the years so.

    It hurts the nostalgia but maybe this ending was as inevitable as the end of Blockbuster Video. In this new digital age of computers, cell phones n video games and kids permanently glued to screens their entire childhood, "playing with dolls" has gone the way of the VHS cassette. Maybe we've gotten the bad ending. Maybe us new gen of adults are just sad that our own children will not grow up in the same ways we did.

    What gets me is Toys R Us just wont lower their fucking prices. They should be selling stuff at 50% to 80% off. They still cant get past 15% off. Soon people wont even be going to the going out of business sales. If your going out of business sell shit like you need the damn money. Theres no room for greed anymore. They want to drag this out for years or what? Star wars electronic figs shouldnt be $100 they should be $40 or $50

  • Star Lard
    Star Lard 28 days ago

    This video inspired me to take my kids to my local Toys R Us a few weeks back, which was also liquidating everything. Partly because I wanted to take them to a giant toy store one last time, and party b/c I wanted to see how SW toys were selling in my area. It was eerie, but my store was almost exactly the same as yours. Many rows picked cleaned, but several rows chock full of not just TLJ toys, but Rogue One and Force Awakens, too. Action figures, the Bladebuilder lightsabers, and those terrible $100 giant action figures with sounds. Oh, and the Marvel gender bender barbie doll things. There were so many un-purchased SW toys they were sticking them in end caps at different aisles and the front of the store. They also had tons of unopened boxes of MORE SW toys sitting on top of the shelves, just like in your video. Very sad.

    SWJs are a bit like furries. The moment they show up EVERYTHING has to be about social justice and it has to be mixed into EVERYTHING and the moment you object they cry about persecution. But furries are just weirdos with a creepy fetish that they’re too publicly into. SJW related shit can be found all over the place, they’re trying to turn the world into a politically correct version of Orwell’s 1984, and they love to pollute the escapist fantasy franchises that everyone else used to get AWAY from modern sociopolitical issues to force even more of their bile out there.

    Very true. Real quick, Kay-Bee might becoming back, due to Toys R Us's catastrophic meltdown. Weird, huh? There's a lot of reasons Star Wars, as a brand, is taking a dump, and it's not Toys R Us's fault.
    Strike 1 : The new SW movies suck donkey balls. Admit it. They do. The writing is below sub-par, the industrial design is beyond lazy, the SJW stench is over-powering, and the acting is essentially terrible. How is a toy company supposed to market this garbage successfully, when the source material is total crap. LEGO is about the only company that can still stay afloat, because you can do crazy other stuff with their products, and even they have their own stores.
    Strike 2 : Brick and mortar operations are getting impossibly hard to sustain, which is sad. There is something fun about instant gratification, in a physical sense. I miss it, since I live in the middle of nowhere.
    Strike 3 : Kids are different now. Most want to play with their phones. Even when I was in my teens, I noticed that Toys R Us had basically become a peddler of video games, quickly eclipsed by Best Buy, GameStop, Blockbuster, Wal-Mart, etc. Different times.

      I dont think toys are really a big thing anymore video games are getting easier and easier to make portable, legos are still going strong and it's more unique and fun to build a lego than a solid big chunk of plastic.
      I still love legos thats how good it is. Sadly toys r us never really kept a good enough stock you never saw the biggest sets their you have to get those "ONLINE" So whats the point in going to a toy store anymore when it's online for cheaper?

    Children's Palace was the forerunner of Toys R Us. That was a sad, sad day when they closed in the late 80's. The amazing thing was all the old toys from the storage room they put on the shelves during the closing. Some of them were over 10 years old. I bought Marvel Mego figures & Batman Ertl cars from the 70's.

    Walking into a chain store that is restocking from its backrooms and warehouses on a daily basis does not make for any realistic observation. Disney does not have the power to force this shit on to TRU. You obviously have issues with SW and Disney. You have no clue about the reasons for TRU going out of business. Star Wars has very little impact on the bankruptcy of the chain. It's been a crappy chain for years and the clearance prices they currently have are not any better than their Christmas sale pricing. They are still making a profit trying to pay down debt.
    Your philosophy of sections that are historically present in the store is long antiquated. You really are clueless.
