    With taxes I easily paid about $100 CAD for all three regular Refraktors, and I'll be happy to pay a little more for more paint, accessories and a cool box. It'll save me in shipping and duties. Just waiting for the road to dry before firing up my bike for some hunting.

    I don't know why people are freaking out about the cost, it's on par with the US price.

    The extra parts, paint apps and cool packaging make up for the extra 10 bucks compared to the single packed deluxes.

    It’s Americans who thought the price was in dollars instead of syrup.

    Does anyone know the TRU part number for this?

    Their ERP is a mess. I hit 3 in Quebec and they can’t event find this in their system. This is not a surprise. The name in the system is always messed up. I gave them an example on Friday with the micro 10 pack. They looked in the system, said it didn’t exist, and I walked over to the shelf and showed it to them. Not the employees fault HQ puts silly descriptors in the make no sense. /sigh

    SKU is 073728.
    My local TRU is hunting them down for me as we speak (showing as in stock, not yet on shelves) and will hopefully have one for me when I get there.

    I really, really dislike TRU. I called 3 in and around Montreal. None have that SKU and none have any listing for Refraktor. Gah.

    I think the "silly descriptors" are often early working names that never get updated.

    Brossard, Lasalle, and Cote does Neiges.

    I wanted to collect both versions. I like the cartoon accurate generic colors as much as the repaint.
