While the US gets Fort Max at Ollies, Canada still has some fun market six findings of their own. The Platinum Edition of Optimus and Megatron "One Shall Rise and One Shall Fall" set has been found at Winners (the Canadian version of TJMaxx) for $39.99 CDN (which is $29.99 USD). This particular picture was found at the Montreal North Winners location but there have been reports of this set being found all across the Montreal area. There was more Transformers related sightings at Winners. They also now have bags of comics, which features IDW Transformers comics, along with other comics, for $10.

Winners is part of TJX Companies. If you have a TJ Maxx or Marshalls check there too. Also, I'm mildly annoyed that i haven't found one of those comic book packs at my local TJX store in months!

Those damn troop builders took all the Gnaws? Never fear I found a school of them at Sears in the Carrefour Laval shopping center. In Laval, Québec.

Happy hunting!

Canada is lagging a bit behind the US on these but not by much. The Robots in Disguise Ultra Bee and Menasor Combiners have been found at Walmart in Ontario by cybertron.ca user Matrix Holder for the hefty price of $49.97 CDN (which is the equivalent of $40 USD, higher than the MSRP in the US). However, this is the very same price that was first found on a Toysrus computer.

The Toysrus exclusive Infernicus combiner from Transformers: The Last Knight was also found and happens to be pretty much the same price, $49.99. It was found at a Ontario toysrus by cybertron.ca user Yonoid.

We have some new Transformers sightings for Canadians. The most popular out of these is probably Overlord. And a sighting in Canada means him appearing in the US can't be too long from now.

RC Sqweeks is also found at Walmart stores across the country. Speaking of Canadian Walmart stores, this is also where Titans return overlord has just been spotted by cybertron.ca user Ridiculousrobot in St. Cattherine's, Ontario.

I don't know how much it costs to do it in Canada but here in the UK you can buy Hasbro's half-hearted and massively overpriced TLK Leader Prime for £64.99 or you can pay £69.99 (plus a few quid postage) and get the far superior Calibur Optimus Prime version from online retailers such as Kapow. Which means you get the Armor Knight modifications to the arms, chest and the head (with battle mask feature) plus the big new axe, and the removable backpack that turns into a cool shield. All topped off with a lovely vibrant much more screen accurate paint scheme with the flames on the chest and arms the Hasbro figure doesn't have. Is really no contest.

Got my TRU MP-10 today!
There's a couple Hasbro TRU coupons floating around, good till end of August, $20 off and 10% off. They're not supposed to be used in tandem, but my cashier didn't know apparently!

Image

Image

I highly suggest you take advantage of these coupons. And with the proof above (my pic of the receipt) then you should be able to double up like I did too! Print out the pics below, they won't accept them in store unless you have them on paper.

Just took a trip to Walmart tonight and I was surprised I found the wave 5 deluxes in my city here in Lethbridge and they had. 2 Twintwists, 2 Wolfwire's, 1 Misfire and 1 Windblade.

They also have 7 Skyshadows as well but he's been here awhile.

You guys might also get a kick out of what I also found in the store. (I'm taking it back I just bought it so I could take a photo)

We have good news and bad news for Canadian collectors. The good news is that the Toysrus Exclusive Transformers The last Knight Deluxes have been found at Toysrus stores in Canada. We are referring to Skullitron and Megatron. The bad news is that unlike the $30 deluxes from the mainline, these are $40. Considering that they are on shelves right next to Titans Return deluxes which currently still sell at $20, this marks for a 100% increase in price from the standard deluxe price point that can still be found in stores for both Generations Titans Return and Robots in Disguise toys. $40 is also the current price for voyager class Movie line toys in Canada, which means that these exclusive deluxes cost as much as movie voyagers (which are already pricier than Genrations Voyagers at $30). And unlike mainline toys, these exclusives cannot be price matched since no other retailer is selling them.

It should be noted that in the US, the exclusives are the very same price as the non exclusive deluxes and that their price in the US, which is $20 USD, would be the equivalent to $25 CDN with current exchange rates. These were found by cybertron.ca user Dak in Toronto.

TRU usually has higher prices anyways. I'd never buy anything there unless I can price match or they have a super sale.

When it comes to prices, I'm probably one of the least vocal people here. But this? This is truly sickening.

$#%^ off TRU. >:oP

yeah but the prices here are even higher than Toysrus.com, almost double the price. And there is no price matching with exclusive.

I agree that is a rip off by TRU in Canada. But on the flip side, free government heath insurance leaves a nice chunk of hobby money. So the grass is not always greener on the other side of the border.
