    That should work out pretty good for our northern friends. Now they should get equal access to all those TRU exclusives at the same time we do down here in the states, like TRU Soundwave. That deserves the "Big Thumbs UP!"

    Well, we GOT TRU Soundwave.

    It took an eternity, but we got it eventually.

    I wonder how much will end up changing in the long run.

    Will it lower cost? No
    Improve distribution? No
    Hopefully it'll make online buying easier.
