Walmart Exclusive Masterpiece Starscream Not Being Released In Canada
Sod Canada, what about the UK?
Seriously, why the hell not in Canada?
Good to know, however this same report came out for Commemorative Soundwave and then he was followingly released here so I'll hold a tiny fragment of hope he will show up a few months down the line (maybe at TRU...or Loblaws Superstore)
Billingual packaging. Wal-Mart doesn't think it's worth it. Lots of reasons. What really bugs me is why Hasbro Canada doesn't shop these exclusives to the Canadian retailers.
Why am I not surprised?
Screw You Walmart!
That's quite the conclusion. It's my understanding that Hasbro Canada does, they still need a retailer to want to carry them.
Yeah I wish we knew the details of how it all goes down (or fails to) behind the scene.
What a wonderful business model:
1. Shrink your markets
2. Have random pricing across the dollar exchange rates
3. "no one would want this after the movie release and with Christmas coming"
So didn't see that one coming. Bloody lazy buncha...
What a waste of potential earnings for Hasbro.
Man sucks for you guys. If I ever see them around here I will pick a few extra up for you guys/gals.
Don't blame Hasbro Canada. They offer the toys, and it's up to the retailers to purchace it from hasbro. Blame Wal-mart.
NNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! MY WHOLE WORLD IS CRUMBLING. "faint"
Stupid Wal-Mart Canada!
I've worked with canadian/UK folks before on exclusives and I will again. Don't pay scalper markup. That only encourages more scalping. All I need is cost/shipping/gas money, and it WON'T add up to a ridiculous $90+.
Calling it a conclusion is giving it a bit too much weight. It's my working theory based on the evidence.
