The local TRU was cleaned out of new single-pack characters, but had plenty of plushies, 1st game variants, Giants, and 3-packs. There was a couple there with a cart full of the single pack new characters and they weren't letting anyone else have them. The guy was proudly saying to some ladies that he'd already raided another TRU and all the local Kmarts, and that they were "out of luck" finding the new figures for their kids.
I suggested loudly that they try Gamestop, Target or Best Buy and the guy just about choked, trying to assert that the new figures are Kmart/TRU exclusives. The ladies thanked me and took off. The guy looked miffed for a minute, then called someone on his cellphone.
I then ran over to Best Buy and grabbed the set, the preorder bag/poster/etc, Chill and Pop Fizz. My kids are thrilled.
