According to dak at Cybertron.CA:

"As of today, "Toys r' Us USA" has made a deal with "Toys r' Us Canada" to become one corporation, known as "Toys r' Us North America". Will this result in Canada getting exclusives that you can now only find in the USA?"

See the original thread here

Good news for all involved you would think! As of now this is our only source for the rumor, but when and if there is an official press release, we'll be sure to let you know here in the Seibertron.com Toy News!!

Now wouldn't that be nice. But we still don't have Target up here, so if this came about, would they make those exclusives available at another store here?

Always good to see a new gestalt, but I wonder if they'll maintain tradition and have the new personality be stupider than it's components?

LOL, good question!

I wonder, if this happened, perhaps it would result in prices which more closely match the current US/CDN exchange rate? Figures here are disgustingly overpriced if you actually go and figure out the conversion.

Doubt it.


Watch Canada still get shafted. Only now their stock will get shifted to fill US stores too.

This is only a good thing!

I've been saying we should take over Canada for years. Let the infiltration begin!

About time. Hopefully this will mean quicker updates in stocks and waves at the stores, not to mention any exclusives that US TRUs have been hording.

Slegde, I'm glad to see/hear that someone recognized my topic title as being worded very similarly to a G1 cartoon command from Megatron...

Why? We already get the TRU exclusives. They're just in very limited stock.

I couldn't think of anything else. It was just such a G1 thing for someone to yell. I'd like to think the chairman of TRU actually shouted something similar. Possibly whilst incorporating a threat to a rival corporation.

"Our stores have a secret, Optimus Chairman Of Walmart! A secret that will rip your puny stores from the ground! Toys R Us USA, Toys R Us Canada, unite into... TOYS R US NORTH AMERICA!!!"

TRU Canada gets nothing available in Japan, we just get most of the US stuff.

That's good news! Our selection of Transformers here is pretty good but I'd like to see more G.I. Joe stuff, it's almost nil.

so what exactly does this mean now?

I hope the merger goes through.

On the one hand, Canadians might get better treatment.
On the other hand, if it's all one conglomerate, the Canadians and Americans will get new figures first. (Canada sometimes gets new figures before America sees them)

Plus special exclusives, etc.

Where is the source? They have no mention of where the original poster got it from.I was pretty certain that both TRU's ARE part of the same conglomeration, but simply different branches.

Canada won't get anything out of this. Or, at the very least, Quebec won't. Either way, I still get screwed.

Whatever.

Hence, the R-U-M-O-R tag. The source must be reputable enough for them to count it as news at Cybertron.CA. But as I said, rumor until we know more information, or see an official announcement.
