Happy to help, hosers. I hope you all can get the figures you're looking for. My TRU damn well better have New Bumblebee by this weekend...!

Good stuff. I'll be on the lookout for Voyager Starscream.

On a somewhat related note, does anyone know how distribution works in Canada? I'm looking at the Botcon site and notice all these exclusives for US chains that don't exist here. Is it a free for all in Canada, or do we miss out entirely? I'm a bit curious about the G1 movie releases.

We'll get the Walmart exclusives in Canadian Walmarts, but we never get any Target exclusives anywhere other than the specialty and comic shops which smuggle them up. *Sigh* And I wanted those Jazz and Starscream repaints too..

The G1 Movie repaints? Well, unless there's a Target near you, you're pretty much screwed. You might be able to find them at a specialty store like Hoistimus mentioned, but their prices might be inflated.

Also, it depends on where you live. I live in Quebec, so I will most likely not see the Walmart exclusives which the rest of Canada gets since they don't bother to translate the packages.

If you want to play it safe, check out the Buy/Sell/Trade Forum and see if anyone can help you. Either that or make a border run sometime.

Good luck, happy hunting, and may you find the figures you seek, my friend! :PEACE:

Aw, that's pretty disappointing. I guess I could check out the Snail, that place is pretty good about not inflating prices too much. Thanks for the info.

SALE UPDATE!

From the 14th to the 20th, Zellers will have Optimash Prime on sale. He will be priced at $8 instead of $10.99, so grab him if you're looking for him!

Lucky, my Toys R Us still has only wave 1 stuff... no Swindle, no Bonecrusher, nothing.

Ironic how my TRU was among the first to get the movie toys, but it's among the last to actually get the subsequent waves of newer figures...

Crap, you're right. Mine only has Wave I stuff as well.

Looks like I'll only be picking up Ironhide this weekend.

Thanks for the sale tip again, Leet.

Unfortunately I might not be able to take advantage, seeing as my girlfriend is mad at me right now, I doubt me spending money on TFs would help the situation...

Now is the ideal time to spend time on yourself! Develop your own interests be worldly!

Well, the argument started because of money so I'd be treading on very thin ice...

I'm all about being worldly and having my own interests, but I'm also quite fond of the possibility of my girlfriend speaking to me within the next few days. :P

She's cool about my hobby, she just bought me the Blackout 2-pack over the weekend, it's just that right now is not the best time... However I have been planning to take advantage of a sale like this and I do have Transformers-specific savings, so I guess I'll see how things are by the weekend. :grin:

woo-KISHHH! (that's a whip sound, by the way)

I'm just joking around is all. Best of luck to you, hope things work out nicely. :PEACE:

*hangs head in shame*

Such is the plight of a Transfan living with his girlfriend.

But yeah, maybe it'll be all good, who knows. Thanks for wishing me luck. 8)
