This Toys "R" Us Discount Is Of Dubious Value

I saw this today at the Toy”R”Us store in Elizabeth, New Jersey and though you folks would be interested. This Lego kit (the Exo Force Sentai Fortress Battle Set) has a sign that indicates its original price was $19.99 and that it is on sale for $69.98. The sign helpfully indicates that this is a savings of negative $49.

We’ve seen fifty-cent adjustments in the wrong direction, but fifty dollars? That’s pushing it.
