Those of you close to U.S. border towns, for the sake of your wallets, jump the fence.
I hear you. I'm royally PISSED that even though our dollar is now official 1:1 with US as of this morning, I still have to pay double for scouts and deluxe figures (deluxe toys are 20$ after taxes!!!)
Ultimate Bumblebee is a perfect example of how we're getting the shaft on the exchange rate.

Then places like The Bay and Sears charged 16.99/17.99, but that's because they are stupid. Zellers, Walmart, Canadian Superstore, etc, 14.99!
Wha tI am pissed about is $40 american for a leader class or something, but $70 canadian at TRU, $60 and walmart/zellers/ WTF ?!
