A sad day for Canadian consumers and Transformers fans. Target, one of the country's biggest retailers will be closing all of its 133 stores across Canada. This is after less than two years of the stores being open for business.

More than 17000 people will lose their jobs, a huge economic impact.

However, this being a Transformers site, it is worth mentionning that this will also mark a major impact for collectors. Target was the third biggest toy retailer in the country, ideally on the same league as Walmart and Toysrus for its Transformers offering. This gives one less venue for Canadian Transformers fans to find their figures.

Granted, a big problem with Target's Canadian expansion was how it was an unsatisfying experience for Canadian consumers and it had a hard time providing the same products it had in the US at the same prices. This was the case for their Transformers offerings which were often the last to be updated among the three big box stores. However, it did act as a significant rival to the other retailers, making sure prices were in check and providing another venue for price matching (although it was usually getting a Walmart price matched at Target than vice versa).

Also, Target provided another venue for Canadians to get exclusive Transformers toys such as the Age of Extinction Exclusives and the Predacon Rising figures, no longer requiring stateside visits or e-bay to obtain them (at a premium). One of the highlights was their adoption of the language laws by adding French on their boxes, letting their exclusives be sold in Quebec as well (something Toysrus still does not do to this day) and selling the exclusive AOE G1 Grimlock and Silver Optimus two pack at 16.99$ across Canada.

However, those days are now over. It is to be seen if this will result in massive liquidations (a last hurrah for Trans fans) or redistribution of the products to the US or selling their inventory to a discount retailer like Winners.

Transformers News: Hasbro Invites Transformers Fans To Create Massive Transformers Character To Enlist In Combiner Wars

HASBRO INVITES TRANSFORMERS FANS TO CREATE MASSIVE TRANSFORMERS CHARACTER TO ENLIST IN THE COMBINER WARS

Fans Can Soon Create an All New Transformers Character in “Fan Built Combiner Poll”

Pawtucket, R.I. (January 15, 2015) —TRANSFOMERS fans around the world are invited to help create a new character for the popular TRANSFORMERS brand — but not just any character. Following on the heels of the 30th anniversary “Fan Built Bot” poll, which led to the fan-assisted creation of the popular new AUTOBOT character, WINDBLADE, Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) is launching the new “Fan Built Combiner” poll. This crowdsourcing project seeks fan input to create a new team of TRANSFORMERS robots that combine into one giant new character in celebration of the theme of the 2015 TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS line, COMBINER WARS!

Starting soon, with exact dates to be announced, the official TRANSFORMERS brand app (formerly the official TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION app) will be updated and fans will be able to log-in and answer a round of questions to help shape the identity of the new Combiner characters. The Fan Built Combiner poll will allow fans to determine everything from the types of vehicles involved, to whether the characters will be AUTOBOTS or DECEPTICONS, and eventually the name of the new character.

Voting for each round will be open for one week, after which the results will be announced and a new round of voting will begin the following week, with three rounds of questions in all. A full reveal of the new Fan Built Combiner is expected later this year, with the character available as a toy in 2016.

“The first ‘Fan Built Bot’ effort was massive, resulting in the creation of WINDBLADE who has her own widely popular comic series from IDW Publishing and toy product,” said Tom Warner, senior vice president of the TRANSFORMERS franchise at Hasbro. “With the TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS: COMBINER WARS line celebrating the venerable COMBINER characters from throughout TRANSFORMERS history this year, this is the perfect time to let fans help create something even bigger than a new TRANSFORMERS character — a Combiner team that will become part of TRANSFORMERS lore.”

The new “Fan Built Combiner” character will be part of the TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS: COMBINER WARS toy line. Like all the toys in the line, which debut in stores this month, the new Combiner figure will be able to mix-and-match limbs with other figures in the line so kids and fans can create their own custom TRANSFORMERS COMBINERS figures.

To participate in the vote, fans will need to download the free official TRANSFORMERS brand app on iOS (http://hasb.ro/TF4APAIT514) and Android (http://hasb.ro/TF4APAS514). Starting with the Fan Built Combiner update, launching soon, the refreshed app will become the premiere destination for TRANSFORMERS fans and will feature first-look and behind-the-scenes images and information on new TRANSFORMERS: GENERATIONS toys. Additional information will be available at TRANSFORMERS.COM as well as the official TRANSFORMERS Facebook page at Facebook.com/Transformers.

Continuing in our gallery offerings here at Seibertron.com, we have a blast from the not so distant past with three Transformers: Prime, Beast Hunters and Go! figures. By clicking on any of the images below you will access the full gallery for the larger incarnations of two faction leaders, Autobots and Predacons, with the latter in both Hasbro and Takara garbs!

Guren Dragotron and Beast Fire Predaking both share the same mold, and come with Infernum Blades, accessories, as well as an impressive wingspan and electronics, but different decos, with red, black and yellow (and the name) replacing the orange, black and silver of the Predacons Rising figure in the Go! version. Optimus Prime, on the other hand, shows off an impressive cleaver sword, shield and rotating Firebreath Cyclocannons and electronics.
