While there are several figures found recently in Canada that have yet to hit the US, there are others that are really late.

We'll start with those. The Studio series deluxe wave that includes Offroad Bumblebee, Shatter and Roadbuster has been found at brick and mortar retail. They were found at Walmarts across the country with the specific sighting below coming from Montreal, Canada.

The voyager wave with Sentinel Prime has yet to be seen and the previous voyager wave with Mixmaster was never spotted at big box retail (just Amazon and briefly EB Games). So if any of you Canadians spot those voyagers at Walmart or Toysrus, let us know.

There have been many new sightings for Earthrise. All the following come from boards posts on Cybertron.ca.

Skylynx was found in an Ontario EB Games by AgeofTransformers. They also found leader class Doubledealer at Walmart.

Rung and Slitherfang were found in an Ontario Walmart by Transbot90210.

A collectable store found in Ottawa and Montreal called CMD got their shipments for Earthrise Scorponok and Skylynx as well. That was reported by Huasotron 75.

I can confirm some of this. I received today my Skylynx from CMD store in Ottawa. He is amazing but I should have waited to find him at EB Games. I also saw and bought Shatter and Roadbuster from EB games in Montreal sunday.

I don't have faith in my local Walmart. It's a store that is very shy in stocking anything.

I often read on this site that so and such was found at stores in Australia or Canada. That is great for persons that live there. BUT I rarely ever see any Transformers at my local Walmart (or anywhere else) here in Florida. If I really want to get a certain figure I have to order from an online seller. The so called, "Brick and Mortar stores", here have very few TF figures. I wonder if other U.S. States have this issue or if it is just Florida. :BANG_HEAD: :-(

Being Canadian, a Canadian sighting doesn't mean much when the damn things never appear in my town. So you're not alone in this.

Thank you for your reply. It's kinda nice to know its not just happening in Florida. I mean it is depressing but "misery loves company" as the old saying goes.

Of all those sightings, the only one I saw at my Canadian Walmart were the studio series figures which were already released in the US months ago. So we are all in the same boat.

I understand your pain of finding Transformers at retail. I can have access to two Walmart and 2 Toys R us and even then, sometime I can't find what I want to buy. I had to order online Siege Voyager Springer (at high price at that) because he never showed up anywhere near me. I never was able to get my hands on Bumblebee's Optimus for same reason and he is going online for insane price right now. So yes, distribution might be an issue.

I had to import my SS Bee Optimus from Japan via Mandarake. It was the cheapest way.

Still haven't bought from Mandarake even though some people suggested it at a Transformers panel last years at Montreal Commicon. I might give it a try because SS Bumblebee Optimus is crazy expensive on secondary market. And I really want him.

Maybe it was ME, who suggested it to you. ;)

So far, Mandarake is custom free as long that you don't use DHL. But due to the COVID bullcrap, packages are delivered extremely slowly.

Just in case, the SAHRA store is the only one that give you the shipping cost up front. Use it to estimate the cost of shipment for the other stores. And of course, combined shipping work only in single stores.

Finally, EVERYTHING is "packaged damaged" to avoid the OCD mint-collectors. If there's a real issue with the condition, it will be stated. If the thing you want is out of stock, you can always put it in your alert list and hope for the best! I got a few things this way.

I think I spent THOUSANDS at Mandarake on so many things!

Anyway, if you get shafted in finding things in Canada, you can import them from them at very low risk:

I found SS38 Optimus Prime online at a great price a while ago. I believe I paid $30 and so I bought two. I have to find them online and I do look for deals and sales. I managed to find the reissue of G1 Convoy (Optimus) minus his trailer for $25 and again I bought two at that price. Now I see it selling for over $50 each. BBTS and Walmart online are the best bets for flash sales online.
