Thanks to a heads up from Seibertronian Kanrabat, we have news that the Canadian branch of Toys R Us is planning to close its doors for the next 2 weeks to help combat the Coronavirus outbreak.

This news comes from a letter sent out by Toys R Us themselves, stating that the closing of the stores is to help prevent the spread of the virus, and that it is only temporary. At this point in time, they plan to reopen their doors on March 30.

You can read the quoted letter below, and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below. And make sure to social distance yourself and stay safe and stay healthy.

Dear Canadian Parents, Families, Friends and Gift-Givers,
Out of an abundance of caution, we have made the decision to temporarily close our
82 stores until March 30, 2020. This decision is based on prioritizing the well-being of
our customers and team members. Our online stores at toysrus.ca and babiesrus.ca
remain open to serve you. We will also continue to offer our curbside pick-up service
at all locations.

At Toys"R"Us and Babies"R"Us, we want to partner with you to help your kids achieve
their potential, so they grow up to be good young adults. As we navigate the days and
weeks ahead we will continue to deliver on this commitment to you our loyal
customers. This decision will be reviewed on a daily basis after considering the
recommendations of the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Stay safe, fellow Canadians.

Sincerely,

Vic Bertrand

Breaking a news that get featured is little comfort from all the MAD and nerves-wreaking craziness that's going on.

I wish more businesses were doing this. As long as things are open, idiots will venture out, and believe me, if you are venturing out right now, for any thing other than need food or medicine, you are a complete fucking idiot.

In my neck of the woods. Everything is pretty much closed. Malls, Beaches, Cinemas, Bars, Restaurants, Most small businesses. Any grocery stores or retail stores like Target, Wal-Mart, Costco, BJ's are mad houses. I have a household of 6 members, and only 1 goes out for necessities, everyone else is just staying home.

Canadians thought the day would never come. But it's here, Transformers Generations Selects War for Cybertron Red Wing is available for order at Toysrus.ca. And better yet, it is 10% off as part of their "stay at home play" event, which applies to any regularly priced toys. this makes Red Wing $35.99 CAD. this is an online exclusive.

They are also liquidating Siege Jetfire at $49.87 CAD (about $35 USD).

Regarding Canadian sightings, every class size of Earthrise wave 1 was either found at Walmart or toysrus this past month. The latest Cyberverse Energon Armor class toys were also found at toysrus.

Studio Series deluxes are at 20$ at Walmart.

However the voyagers are still 45$ for reasons.

Apparently there is a bug with the website or something, I can't add anything into my cart, adding anything just shows the cart as empty and the only price is the shipping on the screen.

Did a little research and apparently other fans on other sites are also having this problem.

Certainly not my browser or account since I used Chrome/Firefox/Microsoft Edge and all the same result.

This sucks

There are a bunch of forwarding services to ship things between canada and the US, you can googke them. Could be worth your time.

Yeah I can't order anything, Transformer or not it just says "0 items" in my cart when I click on add to cart.

Just guess I got to wait or something.

Can anyone else here see if the add to cart button is broken for them as well?

Before anyone asks it does say in stock

Also, Y U so upset?

You know what there is to be upset over?

Being unable to buy Red Wing due to a site bug and just checking online to see him out of stock.

Yay

Best news is that I still can't add things to my cart.

At this point it almost as if TrU is trolling.

Siege Jetfire and MPM Jazz are out of stock, obviously.
But then Red Guard is entirely REMOVED from the site.
Hmmmmm… :-?

Helloooooooooo?
Any Canadians out there?


.....


Anyway, TrU have MPM Ironhide on sale at only 63$ CAN.
https://www.toysrus.ca/en/Transformers- ... D6A6A.html

However as usual, Quebec get the shaft because we are treated like a filthy foreign country.

At least Amazon have it too for the same price and Quebec is allowed to get it.

To buy or not tu buy? :-?

Well, here's a sighting that's worth mentioning.

Any Canadian who were asleep at the wheel for too long before committing to Siege Omega Supreme, now's your (maybe final) chance. Available online at Walmart.ca for 200$CAN instead of the normal 250$CAN.

https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/transforme ... 0200181456

I missed the small TrU preorder window way back then at 160$ and I missed a few 200$ sales. No way am I missing this one, thanks to surprise TPS money from the Federal.
