Remember the old days of getting that Toysrus Holiday catalogue? Well, while that is over for Americans, it is still a thing in Canada. This year's catalogue has Baby Yoda on the front cover and features lots of discounts on toys, including Transformers. The discounts are on the Cyberverse Battle Call figures (now $25 CAD) and the Earthrise deluxes (now $24 CAD), which are represented by Cliffjumper (a fine pick if you ask me). That makes both assortments around $18 USD.

Canada has caught up on most sightings found in the US, such as the second wave of Earthrise deluxes now at Walmart. And speaking of Walmart, we even have some firsts such as the ultimate sized Cyberverse Battle Call figures, which feature Bumblebee in a Gypsy Danger mask.

For some reasons, my local Walmart will never, ever bother to get new stock.
So I had to import my ER Arcee from BBTS. :BANG_HEAD:

Two weeks ago, Toys R Us were almost giving these figures away.
Now FULL RESTOCK of Siege figures at FULL PRICE.

Looks like I'm the only one caring about this thread.

Anyway, that "legend/scout/core" sized "MP-01" Optimus Prime, the 2017 Platinum Year of the Rooster one, is on rollback at 80$CAN.

https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/transforme ... 0196611276

Having money to burn, I'd be kinda tempted but even at 80$, it's still too much for this primitive collector item.

Maybe on Black Friday the deal will be sweeten?

We have some more sightings for you. Firstly, MPM Ratchet has been found in Canada at Toysrus, where he is exclusive. He was found at Toysrus stores all over the country including Quebec, which is a province the toy won't ship to if you buy it online (still currently available). The toy is $169.99 CAD.

Another exclusive found recently is Gigawatt from the Transformers Collaborative Back to the Future Mash-Up. It was found at EB Games for $59.99 CAD. That specific sighting was first posted on Cybertron.ca.

To any of our Canadian brethren:

I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a Gigawatt today.






I may also be able to get hockey autographs in exchange.

The back to the Future crossover Transformers toy, Gigawatt, was never said to be exclusive to any retailer, but still, many Canadians were surprised to run into him at Toysrus after being offered through EB Games. And not just seeing him, but seeing how much with more than a dozen being shipped to stores, as you can see from the photos below. Great Scott! The price is rather steep though, at $60 CAD, so we'll see how well they sell. The images below come from Dspayre and Gunsligner over at Cybertron.ca.

In other Toysrus news, a new sales starts tomorrow where Siege Micromasters and the "Target Exclusive" RID One Step multi pack are %50 off. While that particular set is from years ago, Toysrus has been getting large quantities of it the past month. Makes you wonder what else is being forgotten in warehouses.

With any luck, there will be a Black Friday sale and a Gigawatt with my name on it.

Also, 45$ on that RiD 1step box set is a fair price. And the price that should have been from the very start for old overstock "nobody wanted".

well that figures, i got all excited a few weeks ago when i nabbed a pre order on EB Canada's site since it took over a year before i was able to get Ectotron!!

so all i had to do was visit toys r us? damn.

as for pricing, its the same price as EB and thats also what Ectotron cost so its not surprising. i mean neither are "worth" that much and shoulda been 40 or less but i'm sure the licensing was one issue and canada just sucks for pricing with this sorta stuff.

that said, the figure is really cool and i dont regret it, he's way smaller than i expected and he looks so tiny next to Ectotron in robot form but yeah....i love both!!

i have no interest in the x-men crossover figure but it looks cool too.

here's hoping they do Knight Rider eventually...i mean they can do KITT and KARR to represent each faction!! the possibilities are endless!! :P

Every year, I like to go to Toysrus at the beginning of the Holliday shopping season to see how (hopefully) plentiful it is, and it rarely disappoints. And I want to share that with you all, especially those who no longer have Toysrus and can get a sense of nostalgia and at least know that what they felt when they were young can still be experienced by kids (and parents) out there. Toysrus is all stocked up for the holiday season as far as Transformers are concerned. Granted, it's not all the latest items since there are still plenty of Siege toys (the Micromasters are half off right now) but what matters is that there is stock for parents and relatives to buy. There are also lots of key exclusives like the Seeker two pack, Studio Series Leadfoot, the Decepticon Clones and an overflowing amount of Gigawatts. They even had more Transformers in other areas of the store, like the stocking stuffer display in the shape of a gift box.

No more limited than any other figures. Even the "exclusively" is relative. And for the regular price they go for, these are basically unscalpable.

That is, unless a store pull a Target and clearance the thing at 75% off 3 weeks after it's release. :HEADHURTS:
