    Those guys rock! Bluestreak76 on these boards started this thread wandering about what reissue Prime to get last weekend.

    After offering some bad advice about skipping the recent encore edition due to short stacks I looked into it and was like oops that thing doesn't have stub stacks, I want one.

    Problem was all the usual outlets were already selling them for jacked up prices, all save one. Our fine Canadian Friends at AUTOMATON toys had it for me.

    For $76.11 that bad boy was ordered on Sunday and showed up here in southern Indiana on Wednesday. As I opened it I was very impressed w/ how carefully it was packed; wrapped in bubble wrap, then additional bubble wrap for padding on the sides, as well as a good stuffing of Styrofoam peanuts.

    These guys are tops in my book, glad to have a new go to option for my transformers.

    Just out of curiosity how much was the shipping costs? Was it reasonable for shipping from CND to USA? Thanks.

    Did the price just recently dropped? I just checked and the encore convoy is only 63.74.

    No it's the same. I paid the $63.74 + $12.37 shipping= $76.11 total.

    Not for nothing but look at how much this encore Optimus cost at the other sponsor sites up there, that was a good deal.

    TFSource is close at $69.95.
