I saw RID Prime and WW Starscream at the Barrie Ontario TRU. These are the 6" Titanium toys. There were also Alts there, Prime, Camshaft, Jazz and others.

There's two 6" Titanium Starscreams at Brampton TRU, 1 at Hurontario TRU... No other new ones, though... (I still need 6" Soundwave, Rodiums and RID Prime)...

I don't have a TRU that I'm close to anymore, so I haven't seen them yet.

Can you post some pics of the new boxes?

Here are some picks of the packaging, it's a simple red box.

I'm fairly certain the inside of the packaging is different for each figure. The inside was different for the first round of figures in the Megs packaging right?

Ordered a classic Jetfire from ToysRus.ca this weekend - but right after I went to post my find here, it disappeared from the site. I still have a "Voyager Classics Jetfire" order placed through them, with confirmation email, but I have no idea why it's no longer on the site. Usually they just mark it "out of stock."

Thanks for the pics UP, I'll ask the news crew if they think it's news worthy. And I'm pretty sure the old Canadian packaging was Megs through and though for all of them. It does appear that Rodimus has his flames behind him like the US version. Hopefully we can get a confirmation on that soon.

I picked up a Classics Mirage today at The Bay on Yonge/Bloor. It's so cool. It's super posable. There's one left if anybody's still looking. I also saw a couple of Classics Grimlock.

My favorite Classic yet. If you don't like how thin he looks as a robot, just attach his crossbow to his chest, where it ends up in vehicle mode. It doesn't hinder his incredible articulation, either.

Thanks for the tip, but I think he looks good the way he is. I love this line. I'm still looking for Ramjet and Cliffjumper.

Hmm, interesting. I'm moving to Mississauga soon so I'll have to check it out. I've just accepted a job as a Customer Service Manager at Erin Mills Mazda.

Hey, has anyone seen Classics Devastator at their Wal-marts or Rumble and Ravage? I know they are Wal-mart exclusives and while we usually get boned on that sort of thing, I've found a few wally exclusives in Ontario (Last one that comes to mind was the Prowl vs Starscream Armada two pack)

Haven't seen 'em yet, Shifts. And congratulations on the job, by the way!

The Brossard TRU only has 1 Grimlock remaining, so I hid it so TheTouch can get it (I owe him, I screwed him and bought the last Starscream one time. We were both looking for him, and so was this other guy who bought all of the Deluxes of Wave I, minus the Screamer. He must hate me.).

Last night I picked up 6" Titanium RID Prime and Rodiumus at Sheridan Mall Zellers... They still have a WW Starscream. I was hoping to get Soundwave as well, but it seems like I missed him last round...

In Quebec, the Anjou TRU had a wall full of the various newer minicon sets, and most of the newer classics. For sure, they had Jetfire, Grimlock, and Mirage. They had titanium Scourge and Rodimus too.

Possibly the most interesting thing, though - they have the entire length of the transformers aisle lined along the bottom with Primus and sale signs marking him about $40. They have more than enough of the big guy to go around.

Same here at the Brossard TRU, I've heard that other places are doing the same.
One more thing: it's good to see another Quebecer on the boards! :PEACE:

I hope to find a Soundwave as well. But it may not be that easy because the 3 titaniums at the Zellers are the same 3 on the back of the Canadian boxes. Seeing how Soundwave is not one of them, who knows when if it'll show up.

That's my worry, I think we probably missed Soundwave... I know some people in Ontario mentioned he was at TRU in the wave before this one (which I never seen any of, even though I went to the TRU the same weekend).

I haven't even seen Classics Ramjet and Cliffjumper yet. I hope they and Soundwave will show up soon. If I start seeing movie toys I will be concerned.

I went back to my local zellers and they had none of the things you guys were looking for that they had two weeks ago. No soundwave, no wave 3s, no Tits period. might be a dry spell again.

Speaking of Soundwave, any word on Commemorative Soundwave yet? He's the one I'm interested in right now, but I'm not sure if he's out yet.

Yeah, that's the one I meant. I thought they were talking about him. I guess they were talking about the Titanium one.

Last I remember hearing about that they shifted the Canadian date to May for the Soundwave Commemerative figure... I guess it takes a long time to add a little bit of french to the box. :)

Yeah, and then it takes it even longer to bring them to Quebec, even though that's where the french is needed and Longueuil is in the effing province...
