    Long Haul needs a number written on him. The number 53 seems fitting.

    Forgive me if I'm naive in a subject that's already common knowledge, but why is there such a gap in the distribution times? What's the big difference between Canada and the US? I guess I can see a reason for a little difference between continents, but honestly, Canada? I see no difference between shipping toys to you guys versus the northern states. If anyone knows the reason I'm dying to know.

    BTW Long Haul is sweet. Enjoy, brothers!

    It's just this stupid Voyagers Wave 5. Everything else showed up about the same time, and it usually always does. A similar occurrence happened with the Animated Wreck-Gar/Atomic Lugnut wave, where it didn't even show up at all in Canada. That's why Canadians were a bit tense, especially with the possibility of no Long Haul.

    They haven't been released in the UK yet either. If Canada had to wait for them this long, it softens the blow... somehow.


    Higher taxes, smaller market, cost of making new packaging (?).
    Hasbro puts the U.S. first, everything else is an afterthought.

    It was suggested that Hasbro U.K. is little more than a 'middle man'
    IE they take what they can get. Perhaps Hasbro Canada isn't a lot different(?)

    I was so desperate I picked up a Long Haul in the states a couple weeks ago. Easily my favorite ROTF toy.

    Checked 3 Wal-Marts and 2 TRU's today, and couldn't find anything.

    All those Demolishors looked so sad.

    Does this mean Staten Island is actually in Canada? Because I just found them this week as well.

    My local area Wal-Mart (in U.S.) never got these, and our K-(iMart just got 1 Grindor and 1 Long Haul.
    I lucked out on the Long Haul, but still haven't gotten Grindor.
