    Hrm? I remember seeing it at Xmas time - no membership, so I decided to pass on it. (Was actually looking for Xbox 360s at the time, actually).

    I saw literally hundreds of them during X-mas season. 2 weeks later, they were all gone.

    That's the Costco way -- they have huge one-time promos, and the merchandise is gone forever afterwards.

    I was going to get one, but I passed when I found it was cheaper to buy a RiD Prime and Magnus than to buy the set. $40 shipped for both... SCORE!



    **sorry, that really has nothing to do with your question. I just like to twist the knife. :wink: 


    Hook, you actually saw them in Canada?! WTF man, I hit Costco here in Calgary and they had never even heard of them. >_<

    I bought the set back in the day, then returned it (still sealed). That was at the end of my "buying" days.

    Yep, must've been a couple hundred of em... I impulse bought him, got home, looked at my RiD Prime and Magnus, then my Car Robots Fire COnvoy and God Magnus and thought "why the hell did I buy this?"

    And sold it to a fellow collector an hour later :lol

    I got mine at the Costco in Toronto, which was very good because I didn't have the original molds and was very interesed in getting them.

    They had them before Christmas, one skid full but I didn't see them after that.
