TRU exclusive availability - limited run?

Hiyas!

I start playing Heroscape a few months ago. Been lurking on these forums here and there. Figured I should finally register and post.

I had some question on unit availability -> Are the Toys R Us exclusives (Lava and Flag Bearers) limited runs, or are they going to keep producing them? I'm wondering if I need to go out and get them soon or have them be lost forever (to ebay).

Well, if the flagbearers run as the lava expansion does, they will be available for awhile. A note that may pertain to you, though - I think the 'sale' on the fb's ends today (buy a MS or castle (if you can find it , and get a FB for free) and the lava expansions were about $15 originally, but now retail for close to $19.

O, and welcome aboard, Ursidae!

If the previous TRU exclusive set (Volcarren Wasteland) is any indication, I'd say the FB's will be around for quite some time.

EDIT: Curses! TD beat me by seconds! Heh heh...

Yay, thanks for the replies!

I will probably try and pick them up next month unless they start getting anything other than wave 5 around here.

A year? Really... wow. I've not seen a shortage anywhere. Even the new TRU displays had a section fitted for the VW box (which is smaller then other large expansions). Also, TRU.com has the set available to buy.

Also, I think so long as Heroscape is a popular brand, there will be stock of FB's available. Remember, the TRU sets (VW and FB) are exclusives, and NOT limited edition. So where there is demand, TRU will look to supply.

Well, if the lava is any indication, FBs will most likely retail for $1,000.01 in about a year. (No, that isn't a mistake! :P )

I've always been crazy, but it's kept me from going insane.
