    i just got a bruticus off ebay, description and pic shows a target version. but when i got it it had no red target only sticker on the box. so i guess i got a zellers version. is there any difference in the toy or the packaging?

    The only difference is the sticker. Target exclusives are usually Zellers exclusives in Canada.

    Actually, I think the only other difference between the two, is, that we have a ton of the Bruticus sets left here in Canada. :lol  I counted close to 30 of them at one Zellers.

    i ordered mine from Target.
    S&H drove the price up to over $35, but since i never saw him on shelf here...
    no worries.

    The only way that the two sets are different is that no two objects can occupy the exact same spot in the universe.
    it is Bruticus. the box design, the toys inside, everything is the same.

    now if you see the set at Kmart, it is a KO or a clueless clerk allowed a refund on it.

    just curious if we buy one in canada, then shipped it to the usa. what would the price be? maybe a memeber can get us one cheap. maybe close to retail price? just a thought.

    Yeah, even with the two or three sales we've had at Zellers, they still have the Bruticus sets left. They sell for $49.99 plus taxes. But I think the last sale had them for $29.99. I've only found the Superion set to be hard to find in my area.

    Check out the sister site, Cybertron.ca. I'm sure posting in the Wanted forum might get someone to help you out.


    $49.99 is the regular price. I have seen them on sale once for $29.99.

    Do you guys still see these on the shelves at Zellers? Or are they completely sold out now?

    I've never seen them on the shelves at my local Zellers. But then again, my local Zellers only has two end-caps worth of TFs (on opposite ends of the toy section).

    No difference at all. Zellers is simply how Canada gets Target exclusives, not havign a Target and all.

    And yet I've never seen a single one. Ever.
