Canada and the US seem to alternate between what is found first in one country over the other, which is perpetually odd since they are neighbors (largest shared border between countries in the world) and have the same chains. But yet here is an example of the discrepancy.

The Wave 5 Titans Return voyagers, Blitzwing and Octone have finally been found in Canada, at an Ontario Walmart while Robots in Disguise Combiner Force Galvatronus, which is slated for an October release in the US, has also been found the same week.

The most sought after toy of the moment has also been found around the same time, Movie Masterpiece MPM 04 Optimus Prime. What is intriguing about this later one, found at Toysrus of course, is how reasonable the price is. MPM 03 Bumblebee, is $130 CDN, which is $105 USD (well above the US MSRP of $80), however MPM 04 Optimus Prime is also $130 CDN (so also $105 USD, much closer to it's $100 USD MSRP). And, this week until thursday, there is a sale on all Transformers above $24.99 CDN, meaning that one can purchase (or get a raincheck for) this Movie Masterpiece Optimus at $103.97 CDN (which is $84.29 USD)

Sweet. I need to exchange my dodgy Blitzwing.

What's the current status of raincheques at TRU? Last time I checked they put a stop to them...

$85 bucks for MPM Prime is a pretty good deal. Shame I'm stuck here in the US with no real TRU close to me. Anyone want to step in and help a fellow Seibertronian? :BOWDOWN:

I'm sure some of us would be willing to help... but... when was the last time you shipped something from Canada? I get a lot of stuff from the States, and shipping is cheaper from overseas :BLACKEYE:

I think the last time I shipped something from Canada was when I got DOTM Megatron, and IIRC, the S&H was pretty cheap; then again, this was from a Canadian seller from Amazon.com.

Shipping from any of us would be quite expensive and you would lose any savings. Especially since that $85 does not include the tax yet. Your total would be 85 + 12.75 (taxes where I am) + 20 (estimated shipping) so about $117 USD.

This past week, Canadians have found the latest Transformers the Last Knight Voyger and Legion figures. Voyager Scorn and Nitro have been found at Toysrus while Legion Dragonstorm and Hound have been found at Walmart. The second series of Tiny Turbo Changers has also been found at Walmart. There is still no word of how Canadians will be able to purchase deluxe Hot Rod, since it has not shown up on Walmart.ca.

That set is just MEAN. Forcing you to buy two 150$ sets to have all four... #-o

Oh well.

Oh and just in case, TLK voyager Scorn and Nitro have finally appeared in Quebec's Toys R Us. If you don't find them at the TF section, check near the Rescue Bots. There's usually a small "island" with the newest stuff.

Your mileage may vary from location to location but t seems Toysrus Canada is currently restocking their Transformer section for the holliday season, making it look more full than it has been all year. You can see the images taken yesterday at Anjou Toysrus in Montreal, Canada, to see how Transformers have taken back their entire aisle. Product from the latest waves of all three sublines are there along with platinum releases, exclusives and Movie Masterpiece toys. While the US seems to have made its peace with the possibility of losing Toysrus, the images below will show you how much Canadian collectors will lose if this establishment goes under.

I would love to see my Toysrus that well stocked.

Overlord, Sixshot, Windblade, Misfire, Trypticon, MP Movie Optimus...

Well damn, son, there goes that paycheck! :lol:

Overlord? RID Bludgeon? Wave 2 LK Deluxe? and Trypticon? WOW! Wish I lived near that Toys R Us!

I'm quite jealous of what I see. Wave two TLK deluxes, RID Twinferno, Bludgeon, Thermidor, Twintwist, Windblade, Misfire, Overlord. Hell, just the fact that there's stuff to look at is making me jealous. However, I do have a Chaos on Velocitron set or two still at mine.

How??? The stores by me don't have Misfire, Twin Twist, Six Shot, Windblade, or Galvatron. If I found any of those, or Chaos on Velocitron, I would be a VERY satisfied person.

Once again, Willy shows us why Canada is better.

I'm almost surprised they didn't have some TR Arcees and Grotusques in stock.
