    That leaves those of us with preorders from HTS the choice of waiting for HTS to get them in and save the cash and searching, or go get them early.

    Interesting that May is mentioned in that thread. I was looking at the planogram calendars for Target and I noticed that there is a reset for the boys action figure aisle one week in may. I'll get a definite timeframe for that reset and report back.

    Those prices look a bit high...

    Oh, wait, Canadian... (which technically makes no sense the way the US dollar is..)

    Yeah. The prices are absurd up here.

    Hurry up and set up shop, Hasbro Toy Shop! And charge reasonable prices to boot and not the Canadian markup.

    I don't mind on the smaller figures so much, but it makes a HUGE difference on Leaders.

    This news is most awesome.


    Yeah, it bites, but seriously, I'm well-off, and I'm used to it. I can afford non-adjusted prices unless I go broke or die.

    I wish activators were out at the same time. And Voyagers... and Leaders...:( 

    I depress myself.:cry

    I'm sure if they are to release these in the first week of May in Canada, they will do it for the US too.

    I doubt it. It's never happened on the flip side so I doubt it'd happen now.

    I haven't bought any toys since the movie one were released, and they're STILL at the obscene 50% markup, even though the dollar's been near par for close to a year? **** you, TRU. Are they're any good sites for buying Transformers that ship to Canada?

    I hope these come out in the US soon, athough I'm already trying to get 2 of the 3 Deluxes from Wave one on here.
