Lot of new figures have been found on the Canadian market in the last week. Ultimate Bumblebee was found at TRU just last week with a price tag of $110.

This week, thanks to many of our trusted members, we have reports of Robot Replicas Optimus Prime, Jazz, and Frenzy out at Canadian retail as well. Not only that, but I myself found Thundercracker and Rescue Ratchet at a local Wal-mart.

With so many new figures released mid-September we may see Drop-kick and Recon Barricade within a few weeks as well.

Have you seen any of these figures lately? Why not share your knowledge with everyone! Submit your sightings here

Hopefully we'll be getting Dropkick and Longarm soon.. I'm guessing Cliffjumper won't be for some time either?

If what I have been hearing about the Canadian and U.S. dollars being almost equal, you guys are getting hosed on the Ultimate Bumblebee price and the retail chains deserve a good smack upside the head for doing it. 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.

What province do you live in!??! In Ontario most department stores sell them for 14.99, comes to about 17.44 or something.

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 ?!

Yeah, you can really see the difference on the more expensive figures. And on top of the price being higher than the US price, we have to pay the crazy tax on it. Playing devil's advocate, I can see their reasoning for keeping the price up though. I mean wages do not go down when the dollar rises so they have to charge the same price to pay wages.

I was going to mention that in the news post, but it didn't really need to be there. Hasbro said Cliffjumper, Stockade, that f'ugly helicopter, ect. won't be out until the new year. Classics 2.0 isn't suppose to hit shelves until the new year as well. Animated figures aren't suppose to hit shelves until the shows offical debut in January, however we are getting the animated movie some time in december so there may be a slim chance we will see some of the Cybertronian mode Animated figs around Christmas.

Everything is pretty much "caught up" around most of the marketable world. What I'm getting at here is, if Hasbro says all that stuff is coming out after the new year, whats to fill the void until then :???:

I have seen chess games, robot battle thing(megatron and prime) and stuff like that. But since I can't make a reporting thread for our province, I am not bothering to report Where I saw these.

Not to sound rude, but if that's the case why did you post anything at all :???:
