Last night I went to my local TRU to look for a Roughcut. My nearest TRU did not have any. Go to TRU Customer Service ask them to look up and "item number". These are always 6 digits. Tell them "91077". This is the item number for the Roughcut. They come 3 per case. If that store doesnt have it, have them check nearby stores. If you have multiple TRU near you.
They told me that three other TRU have them in stock and told me how many.
I just bought two Rough Cuts this morning at another local TRU. I got them BOGO 50% off. I had to get a manager to approve it. They won't ring up with the BOGO offer however their sale has NO exclusions. It is a blanket "ALL NERF BLASTERS" so shop away if you can find them. They were $21.99
Also dont forget to check above the shelves. My local TRU keep ovestock in the cases way up high. If you have good vision you can read the side of the boxes.
I took pictures to show you what I mean. Look very carefully at the top middle of the picture below. See the box with the big white sticker on it? That and the box below it are Roughcut cases. (I zoomed in just in case you cant read it)
I knew they had them. But my many years of toy hunting, never waste your breath asking them "where is it?" I searched for it myself and I found it. Then I grabbed an employee to get a ladder and bring it down for me. Don't forget to tell them "There aren't any on the shelves". Also good thing to know is that there is NO street date on these blasters. Sometimes Hasbro puts street dates on cases and items and so even though you have it in your hands, it wont ring up. Then you have to wheel and deal with the checkout people to ring it up as something else. But that is a matter for another day.
Edit: Oh yeah in case you don't know, you can find the 6 digit item number on their website.http://www.toysrus.c...dFindSrc=search
Scroll down an click on "Additional Info" you can see the "R Web #" That is the Item Number.
