    I wonder how many Canadians already picked them up from buying or trading with US collectors, and thus won't need this timely release anyway. Still, domestic releases are rarely a bad thing.

    $18! God gods of retail splendor! You must have gotten the Dante or Randel of the Zellers world. I wonder what they'll go for at normal Canadian retail. My glum guess-timate is $45. Heres hoping $18 is the trend. :)

    Good to see we're getting them.

    I already got mine at TFcon, but good to see others will get a chance.

    I saw some of these again in the states at Target yesterday. I thought for sure the big firestorm $5 sale wiped them out a few weeks ago. They are back up to $24.99 :/

    I think I calculated shipping wrong. It couldn't possibly be $60. o_O

    I heard that the $5.00 deal was actually a mistake and that they were actually more like $5.00 less than the regular price. (at least for the Shockwave and Sunstorm sets). I understand the animated deluxes were something like $5.00 instead. I didn't seriously check them out on account of I'm jobless and destitute at the moment but I have since seen the figures still floating around on the shelves here in the U.S. as recent as two days ago.
