Hey community, i just wanted to tell you what my friends and i have been doing to bypass the scalpers, specifically the Toys R Us ones.
we know Toys R Us has this one scalper that comes in and she is a blatant one- tells everyone she sells on ebay. we know her from her beanie baby days so we know she has been around. so a few friends of mine have gathered and every wednesday we go to toys r us before they open- an hour before hand just to sit and bs, then once the doors open we make a mad dash and grab everything new. once she leaves we put everything back the way it was, make our purchase (today i bought a fashion pack for my friend so we dont waste everyone’s time) the manager loves what we are doing (says we even made the section even nicer than the stoker.) seems hes gotten several complaints about her from other folks. apparently she went to the manager and complained- manager said there was nothing he could do, we are customers as well.
we started doing this for the kids that come in and are so distrought that there are no new things for them.
im hoping others take this and do the same, maybe then the kids can actually get what they want…. without having to pay an exuberant amount.
Ha ha wow…
Ha ha ha ha are you kidding me?
http://lawnchair13.tumblr.com/ is in fact someone from Mohr-Toys. Mohr-Toys is on our black list for scalping. They are following my personal blog, and only my blog, and are trying to advertise their site and make excuses for scalping dolls. If they contact you please ignore them. If you buy from them you are supporting their behavior.
Buyer beware! Possible scammers and scalpers trying to tap into Tumblr!
Just found someone trying to sell Skull Shores Frankies on ebay, linking through their Tumblr. No sales or feedback, only 4 SS Frankies. One of them with $30 buy it now and claiming them to be rare. To quote: “Very few of these dolls are available.” As most of us have seen, the dolls are $4.13 +tax, and there’s usually at least 10 of them at a time.

As always, if you find a scam or scalper, let us know! We’ll make a post and add to our blacklist.
Well wouldn’t you know it.
I got scalper attacked. In the day between putting out my message and going back to kmart to get cheap spectra’s to trade/sell, the shelves in my store were wiped out. According to a friend who works there, a middle aged woman walked in an tipped the whole lot into a trolley, cackling about how they were going to make her rich. go figure, and prepare for a hell of a lot of spectra’s showing up for ridiculous prices on ebay. I managed to get one, just one. ;-;
Mod Edit: Wow! That is absolutely awful. I hope nobody gives that woman a dime. :c -inkytheblot
I got her for about 8.50$ at Justice. Don’t feed scalpers it looks like there stocking them in stores now I have seen about 10 collectively in NC.
