Seibertron.com member Proximus posted an article recently regarding toy gun replica laws for Canadian residents. According to a new appeal, the Masterpiece Megatron figure will be legal for purchase for our friends to the north.

Taken from the article:

A recent Canadian International Trade Tribunal ruling has paved the way for a contentious Transformers action toy to be imported into Canada.

At issue was an "MP-5 Destron Leader Megatron" plastic action figure, which the border agency classified as a prohibited device.

The toy can be transformed from a model robot into a purported replica of a Walther model P-38 semi-automatic pistol. Under Canadian customs tariffs, replica firearms cannot be brought into the country.
