Toys R Us Looking to Raise $800 Million Through IPO
bwbm - Sunday, May 30, 2010


Toys R Us Inc announced this past Friday that it will plan to go public again and will look to raise $800 Million, reports The Associated Press. The ticker symbol for the new stock will be sold under TOYS. The IPO market has been soft this year, so experts say the success of the sale depends on the price. Toys R Us has been experiencing improving sales even in the time of a recession. It is unknown at this time how many shares will be offered, but it may be around 10-20% of the company. Toys R Us was taken public by a group of investment firms back in 2005.

I have one within driving distance but its hardly worth bothering. The Transformers are limited to 1/4th of a shelf and sometimes an end cap. Thats it. There is virtually nothing there that you cant find elsewhere. Never saw Arcee and Cyb Mode Ratchet. i DID find the Universe Unicron exclusive tho. ... read more

in a short drive distance I have about 10 TRUs. There can't be a demand for that many stores.

Oddly enough, the closest Toys R Us to myself is pretty up to date with everything. I even bought the Animated Arcee figure last weekend (finally!). It's the Wallmarts and Targets in my area which were slacking this last year.

TRU is going down the drain, because they wont update. Back in the day. TRU had Target and Walmart. but then the last guy took over and it all went down hill. Just prep the burial plot for TRU

I have to agree, Target and Walmart are kicking their ass, at least when it comes to TFs. You know, they only sell toys, so how hard is it to stay up to date? They also could offer a decent clearance price. Those movie multipacks are going no where. So sad to say, if TRU can't keep up, thats ... read more

As a community we should all collectively buy that 10%-20% of the company

Looks like the Autobot leader will be joining this year's Hallamark holiday tree ornaments offering this year. We knew about the Soundwave and Last Knight Hot Rod, but the addition of the Generation 1 styled Optimus Prime is a little bit of a surprise, literally. As this one seem to be scaled down a bit from the previous edition.
Imaginarium Art posted a new teaser to Facebook for a future statue project, keeping up a constant pace of releases under development. The newest subject of their attention? Why, none other than Galvatron! The silhouette is unmistakable, and it may imply an interesting display base. Galvatron's shadow is planted atop the shape of Cybertron, so the resulting display piece may itself be Galvatron standing atop the planet. Unknown right now when we'll see more out of this development, but the prototype stage ought to be interesting when they're ready to share it!
