I'm just looking to play them. I had most of the games in my personal collection when it came out, so I didn't need it. Then I got hit by pretty bad theft, so I figured I'd look into getting these. Managed to snag a UK preorder, so I can't complain.

I'm probably going to regret this but ...

After driving to 4 Toys R Us locations yesterday and several employees telling me no ... I managed to score 4 NES Classics from 2 locations. Please don't hate on the results of my efforts and luck. Brand new, never opened, and no dents nor scratches on boxes.

I'm keeping one for myself but after seeing all the back and forth on this thead about the NES Classic, I'd be willing to let the other 3 go on CAG. I don't expect ebay prices but I'm also not ready to give $100's away.

I'm willing to take PM'd offers through tomorrow. Please take no offense if I decline your offer.


**** update .... the extra NES Classics have been accounted for as of 7/13/17 at 7AM EST. Thank you for your offers ****

Damn dude. Shouldn't have posted that. Knowing the people here, you're going to get people saying you're only trying to resell it, you "stole" it from customers that want it, you're only looking to show off, etc. 

 

Either way, congrats on the score.

More power to you Luigi, I hit up all the Toys R Us locations I could when the restock information came out and nothing was available within a 4 hour drive.

I'll give you $80 plus shipping for one. I'm a huge retro-gaming fan and just want to play the games, which makes my desire pure. There aren't already several other ways for me to play these games. Come on. Help a fellow CAG member out. I promise I won't resell it.

Option #1.  You may work at TRU. Hold Everything on the back room and buy all of them when you on lunch, break or home

 

Option #2.  You are Family or Friend with  Manager or Supervisor of that TRU store.

 

No way 1 store let you bought multi Mini NES Classic.

Saw it in stores one time before the discontinuation announcement. If I didn't buy it for MSRP then, I'm sure as hell not buying it for more now. Honestly, I wouldn't play it.

Honestly, if he wants like $175, might as well pay $200 on eBay. At least there's some security in that situation.

Congrats on the three, though. Lucky.

Update on NES Classics ...

I'm not affiliated with Toys R Us in any way. I honestly just went to every TrU near me once I read other CAG'rs were recently finding NES Classics in the wild.

I literally had employees go into their stock room to double check. 2 of 4 stores had 1 case (6 units) delivered to them on Saturday 7/8/17 that was never opened. Both locations told me they did not open it was because HQ sometimes instructs them to hold them for a specific "guaranteed to be in stock" weekly advertising. After they confirmed there was no HQ mandate this time around, they sold me and my girlfriend 1 each. They even asked for our drivers license to ensure we didn't live together.

In regards to the extra 3 I managed to score ... they've already been accounted for by CAG'rs. I'm just pending the logistics now (payment / shipping / trade).

Thanks again to all who made an offer. I will not disclose the selling arrangements nor their identitis but they can if they want to.

I've been sitting on two nes classics but every time I try and move them on this site I get offers of 20 over retail...

These nes classics make people crazy. They want it cheap in hopes that they could sell it for more. I guess I'll just keep sitting on them. At some point they will restock them and I will be screwed lol.

I think it's safe to say there won't be pre-orders on this now. Either Nintendo has restricted retailers or they're holding allocation numbers for closer to release. In either case, this is going to suck. I refuse to partake in a launch that will dwarf any Nintendo release to date because the scalpers and people camping out for this will be unreal.

 

Nintendo knows what it's doing with this release and I fucking hate them for it.

Why do people assume Nintendo purposefully creates a shortage with production? There's two sides to supply and demand, and it doesn't profit them to not sell as much. It just makes no sense.

What is the upc number for the nes classic?  I wouldn't mind tracking down a second one I could trade for a snes classic.  I don't know if I'll be lucky enough to  run across a snes classic like I did with the nes.

Because for a manufacturer this long in the business, there's absolutely no excuse for not meeting demand. Granted, they tend to use proprietary parts so it's entirely possible their system designs create a shortage of parts leading to supply issues. Honestly though, they prefer to have 100% sell-through of inventory so they limit production not only as a cost savings on assembly lines, but it looks great in a sales meeting. Who wants to be the person explaining cratering sales figures to shareholders?

 

WiiU remembers.
