We got a flyer in the mail from TRU advertising buy one tower set, and get a free flagbearer figure. So we drive to our two local stores, lots of towers. No flagbearers to be seen. At the second store we ask about it. They look at the flyer, then they punch in the sku number...."ah.. we don't have those... if you give us your name and number we'll call you when they come in."

The distribution of the heroscape stuff hasn't been the best as far as availablitiy has it?

Of course you do get all that scavenger hunt buzz though at no extra charge...

The release date on these things is just "October" so I don't think it's horrible that they are just coming into play in the last week of the month. That's reasonably on time, given the insane rigamarole that things go thru in the big box stores.

Read the rulebook, plan for all contingencies, and…read the rulebook again.

I got one Saturday at the TRU in Clear Lake, Tx (Baybrook Mall).

They had all five of the flagbearers but no Towers in sight.

I pled ignorance on account of their really poor signage.
They let me buy a Bridges and Trees set and get the Vydar bearer for free.

Still haven't seen them yet in my area, but the last time I looked was Thursday... they might have hit over the weekend. One of them did have a couple of tower sets, though they're kind of "overflowing" in my area right now. One of my Wal-Marts had six tower sets on the shelf last Thursday too. wow

I was there Sunday near closing time...of course, they hadn't unpacked the flagbearers yet, so I have to go back to get it. I will do that tomorrow after a run to my FLGS to spend some belated Xmas $$ (don't ask). *Supposedly*, they're holding one at the front counter for me. We'll see how that goes.

I managed to get all five flagbearers at the Bellingham, Mass. TRU yesterday. The store actually did a nice job, for the first time ever, presenting Heroscape -- they had a nice Hasbro-provided display in the middle of the main aisle, loaded up with master sets, castle sets, assorted wave expansion packs, and flagbearers. The regular boardgame section had additional Heroscape products, including the two flagbearers that weren't in the main aisle. So, nice job, TRU!

Usually the boardgame section is about as lame as it can get -- the Bellingham store is a nice store, but not one that gets anything special, so the Heroscape section is usually limited to a few master sets and some random wave packs.
