    Hey all, thought I would forward some Canadian Transformers news for those who are interested; Sunstorm's available for pre-order on the toysrus.ca website:

    Transformers Masterpiece Sunstorm Figure - Hasbro - Toys"R"Us

    As far as I know, this is the first time he's been available anywhere. His Canadian price is $89.99, a full $20 more than Thundercracker was less than two years ago. TRU is really getting ridiculous with their pricing. (The US price was already reported to be $74.99, as I recall.) His estimated ship date is August 8th.

    This was first reported by chuskers on Cybertron.ca:

    Heh, didn't they do a pre-order for MP10, which were then not shipped for months after release?

    Wish Hasbro would stop offering the US Masterpiece line exclusively through TRU and open it up to other companies to offer. Would make life even simpler.

    They've done preorders for mp10 and then turned around and canceled many of them

    Hasbro doesn't 'offer' anything. TRU was the only retailer that 'wanted' to carry Masterpieces. Blame Walmart, its shitty customers, and collectors who waited for them to go on clearance.

    The price could be better but it could be worse.
