You don't own your toys, you only borrow them until you sell them or die!

Its only illegal for you. They must of worked out you had bought the shop stock and stands to start a new ATRU (Alternative Toys R Us or Apacks Toys R Us). :lol:


They probably did but like any good citizen I wont try to acquire any illegal items from them. I'll just try at other stores where the aren't illegal to sell yet. :lol:

They said that the toysrus logo belongs to the licensee and that they cant sell them anymore. You think they would have known that from the beginning.
