It was Black Friday today at Toysrus and while it looked great on paper, none of you missed anything. Yes, the Cyberverse one steps and warriors had good sales, but it was the same 5 figures/characters and while the promoted sales on deluxes from the Studio Series line, there were almost none in stock, and none of the more pricey products (like Kingdom Rodimus or any of the Crossovers) were on sale.

BUT they did spice it up with some pretty cool decor. All across the stores were large standees promoting their action figure area. While the designs for He-Man and Batman were pulled from more recent sources, the one for Transformers was a surprise. It was Bumblebee as portrayed in the G1 Marvel Comics. You can see it below.

The only thing Generations on sale is the Core figures. 13$ instead of 15$. Woopty-doo.

As for the Cyberverses, the Warriors may have been an interesting deal, but only Bee remained. As for the 1-steps, at least there was some interesting things. Finally, the Battle-Call figures were at some dollars off.

That's effing it. :roll:

Black Friday in Canada suck harder than a black hole.

Well... Black Friday or Cyber Monday wasn't even a thing years ago when we had Boxing Day and the US didn't.

I remember I used to be able to count on having 15~25% off sales at TRU. Now I count myself lucky I can pre-order at MSRP.

If that Bumblebee was actually something you could buy I'd really be tempted. The art is great, though I'm not crazy about the spring arms, always preferred it when the artists drew them as just cylindrical rather than actually bendy.

Wow. This reminds us just how disproportional the art was in the Sunbow cartoons and the Marvel comics :).

I don't really see it there, the proportions look pretty good to me.

It's so funny how, as a kid, the coloring and design differences between the comic and the cartoon were almost totally invisible to me. I think I remember being annoyed that Soundwave as purple at one point. But usually I'd just look at something like that Bumblebee image and go, "Yup that's Bumblebee all right," and not even think about it.

But now, as a degenerate adult collector, I see that Bumblebee standee, experience a potent hit of nostalgia, and think, "You know, you could talk me into an MP Bee repaint that looked like that..."

A few Canadians were worried we wouldn't get new stock until Legacy came around but Tigatron has now been found, putting those fears to rest. He was found at Toysrus stores in Ontario and Quebec, the one in the image below is on I found in a Montreal Toysrus. He was 39.99 CAD ($31.27 USD) We also had sightings of new Cyberverse toys, like the wave of warrior Dead End. Yes, that toy was found in the US a while back, showing how much off synch we are at times. It was the other way around for Draculus, which was on Canadian shelves the day it was announced and never left.

Too bad I couldn't go to TrU yesterday. I finished work at noon but it was a STRIKE DAY for the STL bus services at Laval. There were busses only for both rush hours and that's it. Had to walk almost 2 hours in a bullcrap slushstorm.

At least Canadian Tire was on my way and I could grab a "deluxe" authentic Soundwave. Appart the troublesome front hood of the car that you must snap on, he's pretty nice! The way he looks and feel, with his radar dish accessory and shoulder gun, I think that he's a Cyberverse escapee.

Canadian Tire is basically the only place that sell the "main" Authentic toys so it's worth stopping by.

I also spotted the huge light-n-sounds Cyberverse Bumblebee and Optimus at Winners for 55$CAN each. Still too expensive for me. The Bumblebee had a broken car panel from his ankle right in the box and it was bouncing freely inside, ready to fly off the box. I returned it to the manager so that they could return it to Hasbro for their "random prize". The manager proposed me a 10% off discount on the thing, but that completely BROKEN off panel made the thing worthless and I wouldn't had paid more than 5$ for it.

FYI, keep checking the US Amazon listing and tapping the "See all buying options button". I was able to order one shipped and sold by Amazon just this morning for $31.49. Estimated to be delivered shortly before Christmas.

Goddammit.

Guess I'll just get the Ark again.
At that price, I'd be a fool to pass up.

How does a US shopper take advantage of this deal? It says it won't ship to me. Would love to pick up the Ark for $104 instead of $160...

That's really unfair because Canadians can order pretty much anything from Amazon.com.

Walmart had the ark for 120 on Black Friday. We newsed it twice (sold out now).
As for this deal, its canada only, but there are a bunch if forwarding services available. Google that term to see what they are all about.

What are you going to do with 2 arks, use as future trade fodder?

You may have missed some of my posts because I thought my Ark was missing the spaceship tower. Turn out I misstransformed it but I didn't know. I was so frustrated that I returned the thing to Amazon for a full refund.
I did well because now I have it for 60$ cheaper than the already cheap price I once paid.

I got Wingfinger too because I'm giving up on having the mold in fruity clear colors.

Sigh...I totally missed the Walmart sale, and I'm not interested in using a forwarding service. I'm a prime member, but rules are rules... I guess no Ark for me :-(

FYI, Prime doesnt extend beyond your country. I am a prime member in Canada but Amazon.com could not care less, if I buy anything I have to pay additional shipping costs. You would have had to as well if you could order, making it far less of a deal.
