We have tri-lingual packaging because it saves Hasbro a tonne of money. Hasbro Canada shares the distribution cost by using the tri-lingual packaging to help other marketing areas, like Mexico and Quebec. (I know, Quebec is part of Canada. Try telling that to french speaking Quebecers) All Hasbro packaging is made in Quebec if I'm not mistaken. Or maybe it's all packaged there. Can't remember...
Yup. Check out ALL Hasbro packagings. On the back, it say "Longeuil, Québec". Also, sometime, the rest of Canada and the USA forget that Quebec is part of Canada too. I often bitch about it and It's not over yet, but WHAT'S UP WITH THE ENGLISH ONLY TrU TF EXCLUSIVES?! Because of that stupid policy of theirs, Quebec (and Mexico I bet) miss out on EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM. No Masterpeices, no specials, no Year of the Blank, nothing. Eat SHIZZLESNIT, TrU. They could make the tri-lingual packaging for all of these but nooooooooo it's way too hard.
Down_Shift wrote:Anywho, all Targets, TRU, and Walmarts have been well stocked with these for about two months now in my neck of the woods. Pretty easy to come by at the moment. In a few months we will see them on clearance at Winners, Marshalls, Home Sense, and XSCargo.
In Laval, I check often at my Target, TrU, and Walmart. Only Walmart had these 3 new commanders. They only had ONE of each. So I took Magnus and Skullface right away not to miss out. Maybe you are lucky to be overflowed in your area. Maybe more will come out here. Maybe not. Something tell me that like always, these end-of-a-line TFs will be very, very badly distributed.
