We have a couple of new sightings to share with Canadians. Both come from Cybertron.ca. First we have the Dropkick and KSI sentry deluxe toys from the Studio Series line. Thes were found at the Maxie et Cie. grocery chain in Quebec for the same standard $30 price point. This grocery chain is part of the Loblaws family so those toys could show up at Loblaws as well.

Also, while EB Games had the Siege leaders, they are now showing up at Walmart as well.

Finally, the trailer less reissue of Optimus Prime has been found at Walmarts in Ontario and Alberta for $69.98.

In terms of market six stores, Winners and Marshals across the country are getting voyager class toys from Titans Return and Power fo the Primes for $15.

Wow! Only $70?...
No... just no way.
I just bought Blackout which retails the same, there's a lot more going on with that than even the cab for Optimus Prime. I was fine with it being the cab, I was considering getting it, but I guess I'll keep an eye for a sale. Good to hear about Dropkick however.

A trailer-less G1 Optimus should ne 50$CAN at the vert most. Wait long enough and it will be if it was overproduced like Hot Rod.

I found this at my local walmart in California for $50. Seems pricey especially without his trailer.

The price for Optimus Prime without a trailer is a rip-off. It's like they priced him with a trailer but forgot to include the trailer!

Or maybe it's really there, just in subspace storage! ;)

So, these are popping up on ebay now and wondering how to distinguish the genuine Walmart reissues vs the counterfeit ones that seem to look identical. Any way to tell? It's already sold out online and hate to waste time making a trip to Walmart, which I hate, just to find out they're sold out...

How can one distinguish the authentic walmart reissues from counterfeit ones? I want to get one from ebay but not sure if it's real or not...

Easy, the walmart reissue has no trailer. That never happened before, wven with KOs.
There is no such thing as a mint in box trailerless KO.

They sure took their sweet time getting here, but Canada now has the latest Studio Series deluxe class figures available at big box retailer Walmart. These are Clunker Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Crankcase, WWII Bumblebee and Barricade. The latest Bumblebee movie toys were also found, like Nitro Series Dropkick and Blitzwing and Power Plus Series Soundwave. These were all in a central display which has also been found at US Walmarts. Ratchet, Ironhide and Cliffjumper are still missing at Canadian retail though and nothing past wave 1 for Siege has been found yet. That later part makes sense though since Wave 2 for Siege is expected for April 1st worldwide.
