TRU in the UK has been old stock at premium prices (and with battered packaging) for about twenty years. However, go back that far and at least they were getting in current lines as well (I clearly remember Pretenders, Action Masters, Classic Heroes, G1-and-a-half, etc) -- so for example I got the 1985 AD&D 1st Ed. Lankhmar City of Adventure book years after 2nd Ed. had taken over, at some point in the 90s, from a TRU. Obviously handled for years, and with successive price stickers added to the cover.

Nothing's really changed. Lots of Marvel figures at more than online prices in knackered boxes.

I'm amazed they've hung on in the UK.
