Ultimate Optimus in Ontario

I found, and purchased the Ultimate Optimus Prime in Guelph, Ontario at the Toys R Us Express at Stone Rd Mall. There were 2 left.

You guys wanna hear something funny? I went to Metrotown TRU yesterday, and asked whether or not they had received Wave 3 Deluxe DOTM. Well, turns out they had.

On Thursday.

One case.

Which contained exactly one Thundercracker, one Mudflap and one Laserbeak.

Which, according to the guy I talked to, disappeared as soon as it was on the shelf.

I was told they might get more next Thursday. Hopefully they'll get a lot more of them.

And hopefully, at least one Laserbeak will still be there by the weekend.

Jeez, one case containing one of each? Man, I just hope this sale clears out some of the Wave 1 toys so we can get some new stuff.

Speaking of that sale, apparently they're giving away a poster free with purchase of any TF figure to go with the one that was given away in June. Anyone manage to get that?

If someone wouldn't mind going to Metrotown TRU tomorrow sometime before 3 and check to see if they've got Wave 3 Deluxe DOTM, I'd really appreciate it. Don't really want to make the trip down there after work unless I know for sure something's gonna be there.

If I was near I'd go but unfortunately I'm not. Lansdowne TRU had 1 Thundercracker and some Nitro Bees yesterday, but I dunno if they're still there.

I don't suppose anyone went down to Metro TRU and found out whether or not they had DOTM Wave 3 Deluxe, did they?

Haven't heard of any Deluxe Wave 3 sightings recently. I'm sure they'll start showing up more soon though.

They'd better. They've released pretty much everything else current.

Good news, folks. Found a store that's selling Wave 3 DOTM.

Bad news? The store is the Toys R Us Express store @ Lougheed Mall.

Which isn't open yet.

And I have no idea when it will be open, which means that by the time I find out and am able to get down there, the usual band of monkeys will no doubt have flown in and swiped all the Laserbeaks.

Lougheed TRUX is open today! Still 2 Laserbeaks as of 4:21 and I believe there may even be a MP Rodimus or 2 left. I hope you get what you're looking for Darth Bombshell!

I kinda figured it would have been open today, after I gone down there yesterday and saw two people inside printing off labels.

Had to go down to Hourglass to pick up the Previews catalogues, so I decided to go down there on a whim. Was suprised to see it opened, and frustrated to see that the Laserbeak I had seen hanging on the peg when I looked through the windows was gone. Thankfully, one was hidden behind a Nitro Bumblebee (As an aside, really? Isn't it too early for a repaint?), and it's currently sitting on my bed right now waiting for my attention. :twisted:

Now...is it too early to starting asking how long till we see Wheeljack and the Leadfoot/Twin Twist combo?

(4:21? I think that's about the time I was there.)

Hah, probably. I can't believe it's taken this long for wave 3 to really hit.

Well, unless it's also managed to hit the Metro TRU, it hasn't really "hit". I mean, yeah, it's at the TRUX in Lougheed, but that's not exactly a major retail, isn't it?

Not exactly, no. Apparently they actually got a case at Lansdowne and Bowmac a couple weeks back, but of course they were gone within a day. Who knows when or if we'll ever see them in numbers, with all this wave 1 & 2 crap filling the shelves...

If anyone goes to the Vancouver Flea Market to buy TFs from Scott, it's his last weekend there, he's moving on to other things. The market is still open tomorrow if you want to make one last purchase. He still has lots of Generations & RTS toys.

We are still just barely seeing Wave 4 in BC. It will probably be a long time until we get Wave 6.

MP Rodimus has been restocked at most Lower Mainland TRUs and TRU Express. Check it out if you don't already have one.

It seem such a thread is missing. Any Québécois from the regions over here? Feel free to contribute.



Starting out with RTS Rovimus VS Cyclonus Battle In Space two-pack. 30$+Taxes at the Laval TrU, near Le Carrefour Laval. They still have plenty of them.

Need a overpriced and ugly Orange Voyager The Fallen? Only 40$+Taxes at Zellers in front of the Centre Laval.
