Well I've notice there are already two new sightings threads posted within the last few hours or so of each other so I'm gonna pull rank and make this the offical new one and lock out Zeds and Sunstars. No offence tto either of you, just tidies up the forum a bit after the small melt down we just had.

So, the last big news was Zed and Beastwarrior (sorry man, not doing the numbers :P ) finding Primus for $40. BTW, there is quite a funny story about this, I'll post it a little later.

And The Dark Knight finding Classics Wave 2 Jetfire, Grimlock and Mirage at his local Wal-mart.

I also have something of my own to report, Silver Snail just got in Revoltech Convoy and Magnus for $29 and $34 respectively.

So lets hope we can pick up where left off last time.

Happy Hunting Canada!

I just found the first wave of those little Classics Legends at TRU last night. Leo Prime(Lio Convoy), Trypticon, Fireflight, and Perceptor. They look good but they're a dollar more than the Cybertron ones.

Not sure why there have been price hikes of late on most items. Price of oil reason is getting old but is the most likely cause.

Glad to see that the Forums are back online!
In B.C. all of the Toys R Us have Wave 1 of Classics Legends but still no sign of Wave 2 Deluxes or Jetfire. Has anyone even seen Jetfire on Canadian shelves yet? How I long for him...

QFT!

I am going bonkers waiting for him. I have heard from past posts that he is coming two per box in the latest shipments alongside OP so we should have an easy time finding him soon.

As mentioned in the very first post :P Jetfire was spotted at a Wal-mart here in Ontario along with Grimlock and Mirage.

As Zed was saying we should be getting the two per case assorments of Jetfire and two of Grimlock assortments as well.

TRU Brossard (South Shore of Montreal, Quebec) has received the Classics Legends of Cybertron figures. I'm dubbing these guys 'Classics of Cybertron.'

Aside from that, they also have the Marvel Legends Wave with Hercules and Planet Hulk, and a Wave of Ghost Rider Figures. Plus some new Star Wars Basic Titaniums - the TIE Interceptor and the B-Wing Fighter. I'm thinking of getting both.

So the cry babies over at TFW and Cybertron.ca were complaining that we were lying because there was no pictures taken of Grimlock, Mirage and Jetfire.

From my experience, the folks outside of toronto get figures before them.

What do you guys think? Should we have asked Dark Knight for pics before posting it as news or do you think we were still in the clear for posting it as news? I would really like your oppinions on this one for next time we trump them on news and they have to find a better excuse for not getting it first.

I think that it should be posted in the News, but make sure that you add something like "There are no photos, so take it with a grain of salt" or something like that. I believe Dark Knight, but having no photos in the News Story means that there is no hard evidence.

I personally don't care if there are pictures or not cause I don't think anybody would purposely lie. Maybe they might make a mistake on identifying a figure if they are not a big fan.

If you want to have credibility though, I think you should have pictures unless it is a trusted source.

Also, I feel Sunstar's pain because she DID post first.

No, we don't need proof from him. I also live in Mississauga and there's been many times that a tip from Dark Knight has lead me to picking up the latest Transformers.

In this case I didn't have a chance to go out this week, but in the past he's always been reliable.

I think the Walmart closest to him is close to the distribution centre and they tend to get things a week or so before they come to my part of Mississauga (south of there).

Also, I think a lot of us have been around this board long enough to trust in eachother... :)

Appreciate the support.

I would have taken a picture but I'm kind of lazy. Had I known the credibility of Seibertron.com was going to be questioned I would have gotten off my ass and taken a picture.

Like Down_Shift said. I think they were upset that they didn't find them first.

Comments on Grimlock, Jetfire, Mirage:

Grimlock - A great addition to my collection. IMO looks better in dino mode.

Jetfire - Currently in contention for being my favourite Classics figure.

Mirage - Complete dissapointment. Alt. mode is alright. Bot mode looks like a twig.

I agree, I don't see any reason for someone to lie about posting a new sighting. There are a few stores in Toronto that I can go to right now and buy Ramjet and Cliffjumper and post pics with a wal-mart recipt but that doesn't prove anything to me. We've posted news about Canadian sightings in the past and credability has never been brought into question before.

As for the new thread, it was nothing against Sunstar or Zed, but I was asked to lock the two and make a new one to maintain.

Your right I should have mentioned that there were no pics. I should have called the Wal-mart for a personal confimation as well. I have unlimited Long Distance so it wouldn't have been a big deal to me.

After Seibertron had a bit of a crash we last all sorts of old data so we had to start anew. Sorry bro, lots of happey memories in the old thread.

As for MP Starscream where abouts do you live? If your in Toronto, I always go to the snail. If you live close to Beastwarrior and The Touch then I hear Legends is good.

Toy Square in Makham is also a good place. Nice display window too.

I don't think anyone here expected a picture from you, I know I didn't. As for TFW, I say leave them to their own devices. I've talked to Collen many times and I know alot of other mods on the boards don't care much for him, but he takes alot of pride in Cybertron.ca. If it were easier to submit sightings to them I'm sure we'd all be able to help out more with Canadian sightings as a whole. I'm not in it for the competition, just to get the news out there.

Gotta say, I'm surprised you don't like Mirage. I like Jetfire alot, but I think I like Mirage better. Very poseable.

Found one Classics Jetfire at the Peterborough Wal-mart. I'm sure it's gone by now, but it's the thought that counts.

Just got back from scouting the Brossard TRU with TheTouch. No new TFs, though some of that Marvel stuff looks groovy. 12" Ghost Rider w/Bike FTW.

I went a couple places tonight...

South Common Walmart had assorted junk. That's what it seemed like. They had a pile of Cybertron and Classics mixed on the shelf, all old stuff, zero organization.

Oakville Walmart had the wave 1 deluxe classics and minicons and a few primes....

Superstore next to the walmart had nothing. It was a pretty disappointing trip.

If you're looking for either Grimlock, Jetfire or Mirage. I saw all three of them at the Erin Mills Town Centre Zellers.
