    $24.99 for 3 Deluxes? Doubtful. I think the $35-$40 range is going to be more in the ball park.

    As it stands, I plan to keep my preorder at BBTS. I don't want to have to hunt down a set and then hope it is in a good box. I've already got that taken care of with my order at BBTS. Will I be paying more if it hits US release? Sure. I'm not gonna lose any sleep over it, though.

    Yep. Saw at least 10 of it at my store 50% off. They sat for a few weeks at the 30% off mark with no takers.

    I'm only mildly interested in the set for "His Armada", and neither of the other two figures, so I'll just wait for the Stateside release...maybe even wait until it goes on clearance.

    What Sol Fury was referring to was from the link below. The statement was later. Based on bluestreak56's post what lead to the Target speculation. As I posted on another thread; "So far I see no confirmation yet. Like many I hope it is released a Target exclusive, but I'll hold on to my pre-order till we get more of a solid confirmation of a U.S. release. I can understand the excitement, but most of this wishful thinking can lead to a lot of disappointment if Hasbro can't get a exclusive distributor."

    Waiting for the Target release (which means a Zeller's release here in Canada). I don't order brand new toys online, I wait for them to show up in stores.

    I'm not 100% sure, but you could use a little more tact the next time please.

    It's true...no one here does...and all the people gambling on it getting released here will be crying like butt hurt collectors when they have to pay higher prices if it never gets released here...

    and like this web site uses tact....:sly2:

    Not all the people. I for one know I am taking my chances, so I won't be crying. And If I have to pay a higher price I'll go for the original classics or Henkei.

    And we are all fans here. Just respect others and the same will be returned.

    But thats part of the TF fandom. You got to remember, not everyone can drop $50+ for toys. There are those that patiently wait for TF's to be on clearance. Thats why people are enthused about a Target release.

    But I see where you're coming from. As I said before, too much wishful thinking will probably lead to disappointment if this is not released. I can see it now. all the "Screw you Hasblow" or "Again you don't listen to us fans" posts.

    I've never been so excited for a Multi-Figure pack since ..... along time.

    I'm hoping for Target.

    Of all of the exclusives, Target seems to always be plentiful and put on clearance a month later.

    Furthermore, Target stores seem to be much more plentiful than TRU. I have 5-6 around that are each 10-15 minute drive apart from my place. A plenty more outside that radius.

    For some people, TRU is hours away and with the scalpers they will more than likely walk out empty handed. Terrible waste of gas.
