    I will get the free stuff and then promptly leave as they overprice everything.

    I think will finally be the first time this awkward older dude shows up to one of these events. No shame.

    Galaxy holo looks sooo good on charmander, I'm even more excited to see what the holo version of Electabuzz looks like!

    Do you guys think the charmander will ever be worth anything? I might get it if it'll be of value in the future. Otherwise it's not worth dealing with Toys R Us...overpriced on everything. 5-6 dollar packs, ridiculously inflated prices on boxes...I'll either go to gamestop or wait for Target/black friday.

    go for plushies, leave. Get brother to get another plushie, leave. Mum goes in and gets plushie, out. Sister goes in and asks for plush. Mission complete

    Are the lower pictures what the collector's album looks like on the inside? With paper pages and punch-slits to wedge the cards into? What a horrible way to store cards. I wonder if that booklet isn't even acid-free, which will discolor paper after a while. :(

    But that charmander is very pretty. I wonder if I show up early and decline the figure, will they let me take two cards instead? :)

    What do they expect you to do with that collector's album, tape the cards into it?

    Probably not, our TRU didn't get the Generations promo cards - GAME did - so I'm doubting they'll do this. GAME might, but again, I doubt it. We'll see.

    The Album we received in Lansing says this event will be November 20th. So there must be multiple dates.

    It would be more helpful if Pokebeach included more details about events like these (or links to the advertised events). I was super excited about the event, showed up at my local Toys ‘R Us at store opening only to be told the event started at 2. I came back to the store an hour early and was the first one in line. Unfortunately, because I am an adult collector, I did not receive the Pikachu figure. All of the official wording says that a toy will go to the first 50 attendees. At least I got the Charmander card.

    My booklet says November 20th as well.
    I agree. This happened to me on the date of the first Pokemon event this year at Toys R Us. Also, I've heard if you ask store management they'll usually give you the figure to keep their customers happy.

    My Toys R Us didn't even have the Pikachu figures. The figures "never came in."

    Anyone know how big those collector albums were? I missed out on one today and wanted to know what they looked like/how many cards they held.

    It was about 8 pages, cheap catalog paper, with adds for Pokémon products and some bad really bad slots to hold your charizard and mega charizard. I wouldnt trust it with my commons so you didn't miss out unless you wanted it for completions sake.

    My toys r us gave the first 50 people in line tickets worth a pikachu. I got mine!

    I heard another person's toys r us on Facebook let all 25 kids be at the start of the line. to get pika and a bunch of other adults gave theit pika to kids after.

    I went to the Charmander event yesterday. I'm slowly building a collection for my son who will someday soon be old enough to play pokemon.

    Toys'R'Us manager was kind of a jerk. He was only giving folders and Charmander promos to small children, and claimed things could only be given to people under the age of 10. I told him it was for my son and he told me, "Sure" acted like he didn't believe me then skipped to the next person.

    I'd feel bad but he also wouldn't give anything to the 12 year old in front of me in line.

    Has anyone else had a bad experience with a power tripping Toys'R'Us manager. I'll probably never go to one of these again, or spend money in his store.

    Edit - Just read this looks like someone else had the same problem. It's sad, we actually have a TRU account and found the event from an e-mail they sent us. Then couldn't even follow their own rules.

    My booklet says "...the 20th (or the 19th in Canada)."
