More Than Meet The Eyes

well well well , went to watch again Transformer movie on thursday midnight show at Sunway , and ... lost count of how many times watched. The thing is we knew friday there will be new arrival stocks from Hasbro , maybe is jus another motivation for us to wathc it so that can push more sales.


The funny thing is , Transformer movie had shown for more than 1 month , and according to UIP , it aready broke their new records , and still same everyday , the cinema yet still fulled , OMG .. how many times they wanna watched.


When the movie out , and the toys figure out at the same time , and if anyone of them hoping to get nice tranformers toys at Parkson , T R 'us" or Jusco , then basically u can forget about it. unless you wanna wait at the shop wait for the shoppin mal to open n start grabbing those toys. The only way you can get the nice transformers figure is from the toy shop .. of coz , in malaysia, the toy industry is not as strong as like HongKong , Japan or even Singapore , even 10 fingers can count of how many toys shops in KL . But most of the time , the toy shop would have increase the price for more than 50 or even 100% ...... so , for the toys lover , u either take it or leave it.


when 1st time came to meet james a this guy deal business in different ways, he always believe customer service and maintain a good relationship wit his customers . one of the reason the collectors like to drop by his place so much because he sells his itmes follow the market retails price , and of coz for few more reason ......


everytime when new stocks arrived , for sure you can see lots of lots of people willing to line up and cramp his shop, and as usual , everyone will have same shout out " i come first ... i come first wor... " . But this time , he figured out a nice n fair play .... numbering system. KNN, see people go for toys shop buy toys , but this is first time see people have to take number to buy toys . u think bank meh ......




don be surprise when the number system were put on his shop that previous night , the next day , some collectors even will drop by at his shop at 830am jus to get the number 001 . and slowly .. people jus keep on coming and for those who get number 50 and above .......... errrr, chances getting the toys 50/50. or mayb empty handed.... wahahaha



ohh.. c'mon laaa , number taken yet stil wanna camp at the shop , although the stocks will be coming noon , and they know they can least go for drink or breakfast , but they rather stay in the shop for "toys cultural exchanging " . the question is .... do their boss know this people really taking MC or annual leave or might jus sneak out from office telling the boss " I Go to Bank first yaaa....... " then, when someone called them , wat will their respond ??? " Ahhh YAAAA.. FRIDAY SO MANY PEOPLE AT BANK.. THE Q SO LONG... SOMEMORE TRAFFIC JAM.. GOT SEMBAYANG MAAAA...... " wahahahaha....





Finally long waited for the stocks arrived , total of ...... errr , i dont know how many boxes there , but i knew that was only half of the stocks for that day :P



After the stocks loaded out , people hands getting itchy ... eyes getting shinny ... hearts beats getting faster. and even some collectors there volunteer to be the guardian of the stock keeper. :P


well , since today so many new arrival stocks and it might be a mess , James thought better still all get prepare , at least when number called , and the buyers jus say what they wans .. then all packed n can be delivered.

However the number called until 30 something and already 3/4 of the toys were almost gone , and for the rest of the late comers , well .... will have to come back the following week and check what's new stocks coming. and this time , i'm sure the fans will know what to do and wat time to be there to ensure them get a nice number . or to be safe , can always check on ToyWorkers updated blog. :)


woo hooo .. James , do i get any FREE toysssSSSSsss for helping u do promo... :P
