- Motto: "a man who wants nothing is invincible."
i guess its different for us in canada, but ill just relate my hunting experience...
i collect a lot of imports and third party, all of which are purchased online. when official domestic releases come out that i want, i go on the hunt. and the hunt, is a lot of fun for me. keep in mind that here in canada we get the same releases you americans do only later. usually a couple months, sometimes three. and when they do start popping up in stores they dissappear quick. but once the hardcores get their fix, that wave usually warms shelves till the next one arrives. hell, i just realized i needed a hasbro trailcutter yesterday and found him quite easily at the TRU on the way home from work.
now, THE wave everyones talking about just arrived in my neck of the woods about 3 weeks ago. and ive seen it freshly stocked on the shelves about four times since then. so i cant say that here, theyre particularly rare or that theres been anything released domestic in recent memory that was hard for me to find.
