    I was just looking on Kijiji earlier and I saw some guy in Woodbridge scalping them for $220. :scalper  He had the shipping box as well. I bet he works at TRU and bought them before anyone else could. Hes asking 110% more then it cost him in store. They only cost $99 CAN. in stores.

    If your in Ontario Don't buy from this guy!
    I HATE SCALPERS!

    I hope the figure is all over Canada and US before Christmas! This is what I am asking my wife for Christmas. :D 

    Also for toughs in the US. I feel your pain I still have not seen much of Prime RID other then the first 2 waves. I had to buy Ratchet on EBAY, Arcee in Buffalo, and a Vehicon in Vegas.
    I hope you guys get your figures in stores very soon! If I was you I would wait till you have them in stores near you. I did check Ebay and I do see HK and US sellers selling the figure so it must be coming. Ebay sellers are also Jacking up the price too high!

    Does "released in Canada" mean "can't find them anywhere and no Toys R Us employee will know what you're talking about"?

    Because that's what "released in America" means. :mad

    The reason why I have suspicions that it was an employee is the person that is posting the sale has included photos of the shipping box from Hasbro in the add. These boxes are not seen on the floor of the store. they would be despised of once unpacked and placed on the shelf.

    Oh and also on cybertron.ca discussion board they were saying there is only one box per store going out right now per store. And there is only 2 figures per box.

    Well I can personally tell you that each store is getting at least 2 boxes. Since Hamilton Toysrus had more than 3 this morning. Gone now.

    lmao. yes
    at least for the time being. initial shipments are pretty quaintly low. stores only seem to have gotten 4 each and that was that. 3 hours and gone at every location.

    no tru exclusive sticker on the box but it would appear so....at least for now.

    They aren't carrying it because it's a TRU exclusive. They'd have to middleman them to carry it.

    After driving from Quebec and searching all over Ottawa I found a TRU that had forgotten to take one out from the back and now he's mine. Just for the record all six at the TRU on St Laurent are gone and I found this one at the one on Maitland. Happy hunting.

    Hey man, I got one of the six from St Laurent yesterday morning just as the store opened. I'm really glad you managed to find one considering you had to go across provincial lines haha.
