Nice! I've heard that they're doing small restocks of Voyagers in BC too, although of course the Bulkheads get snapped up fast.

Sounds like what I said about Metrotown TRU.

They've changed the layout again since I posted that. Deluxes once again have peg space, though it's far less than what it used to be.

Bowmac (Broadway) TRU restocked all Prime figures last night, but Bulkhead is already gone. If you get there quick you might be able to grab a Cliffjumper, there were 3 sighted most recently. Only 2 Arcees were spotted as well.

I don't suppose anyone's been to Ages Three and Up and found out whether or not they got Takara Wheeljack and Leadfoot, have they? I went down there on Monday, but didn't have time to do a thorough look.

I'll go there over the weekend and ask. If it's going to turn out ot be the only way I can get them, I'd better prepare.

On another topic, who's going to Fan Expo Vancouver? Their guest list's been updated recently, with several TF VA's attending.

Yeah, lovin' it... And then they showed up at TRU and quickly disappeared. Zellers needs to get on this pricing issue or TRU needs to restock their damn toy section. They'll probably wait until AFTER the sale though. :roll:

Watch out if you find a Soundwave, mine came with a wrong part, the black pieces that connect the wings/arms to the fuselage/torso have two right sides. :BANG_HEAD: So I overpaid AND got a defective figure, yay... :roll:

My LCS is getting the Fall of Cybertron figures in this week, which means they're most likely hitting other LCS', along with general retail, in the near future.

Also, Ages Three and Up has a Japanese Deluxe Leadfoot, which is awesome…if you’re willing to shell out over $150 to get him.

What the hell...seriously? That's absolutely ridiculous. I hope they're prepared to have it on their shelf for a VERY long time.

I thought so, too. Then I thought about it, and realized that it's not that bad, considering...

1). It's a Japanese figure, and it was never going to be the $14.99 price that deluxe figures usually are.

2). It's also a rare figure, given that its American release got canned. So it'll be asking much more on the open market.

Due to those factors I could see 40, 60, or even $80, but that is just outrageous. The only way I could see that price as justifiable is if they bought it at a massively inflated price themselves.

They probably did. I didn't think to ask. Like I said, due to Hasbro's cancelling of the Dark of the Moon line, it, along with Wheeljack and Soundwave to a lesser extent, are likely to go for ludicrous prices on the secondary market, since the only way to get them would be through hobby stores like them.

Found a bunch of Generations Transformers at a Winners in Richmond Hill.
The figures I found were:
Thundercracker x2
Sergent Kup x1
Scourge x1
Wheeljack x3
Warpath x2 (Purchased)
Price: $7.99 each
I think that these will make interesting Customs.

I know I'm a little late to the discussion, but knowing that, when I paid twice as much to get them when they first came out makes me all kinds of sad.

Anyways, I was in Langley today and came across a little shop that a had a BUNCH of G1 stuff, boxed and unopened. Biggest shock: boxed PM Prime for $300.

Also, Wave 2 FOC figures are hitting my LCS next week. I've got one of each of the Combaticons on layaway. Can't wait to put that thing together. :grin:

So went to XSCargo and to my surprise they had Transformers Generations there. So I picked up Warpath, Seargent Kup & Wheeljack. They were $8.88 each!!!

Then went to my Walmart and picked up all 5 of the Fall of Cybertron Combaticons.0 Good Haul yesterday.

I wouldn't count on seeing them. The Generations line of figures has had the annoying habit of not showing up in retail.
