From the Financial Post:

 ‘Multiple’ suitors line up with offers for Toys 'R' Us Canada

Maybe we "Snowtroopers"  should buy TOYSRUS Canada.   :u:

It could be a win win situation.  MGA Entertainment is toy company that could be carrying a large unpaid account from TOYSRUS.  This way they get some kind of pay back of the money they are owed .  They can operate a chain of the stores that is making money and feature their products in the stores.   The deal could be swapping the unpaid accounts for the inventory and goodwill that Toysrus Canada has.

From the Global Mail:
Toys "R" Us is in talks to sell its entire Canadian business as it works to shutter its 70-year-old U.S. operations, but analysts are skeptical about the future of the brick-and-mortar toy retailer's existing business model.

The company confirmed Thursday it is in "active discussions regarding a transaction that would result in an acquisition of the entire Canadian business," as the U.S. company seeks approval in its bankruptcy proceedings for the sale of its equity interest in the Canadian business.

The statement came a day after California-based toy company MGA Entertainment confirmed its CEO Isaac Larian and affiliated investors have made a bid for the Toys "R" Us Canada operations.

"Toys 'R' Us Canada is a good business," Larian said in a statement. "They run it efficiently, and have good leadership. At the right price, it makes economical sense."

Toys "R" Us CEO David Brandon has said the company will try to bundle its Canadian business with about 200 U.S. stores as it looks to find a buyer, but the MGA spokesperson declined to provide details on how much of the business Larian has made a bid for.

Just watched CBC talking about TOYSRUS closing down in the US and now liquidating it's assets.  The conversation was basically that speciality shops whether it be toys or running shoes is in trouble now and will not exist in the future.  They did not predict the immediate out come for Toysrus Canada but did say that they will not exist in the future.

I was in TRU the other day talking with the Hasbro representative and TRU staff.   The one thing I did notice is there were a lot of staff on the floor and the store was completely dead in terms of customers in the store.

I hope a plan comes together to save TRU Canada. 

jjreason, I did not mind this one.  I thought it is being way over hyped in the media. But with that said Black Panther and Wonder Woman are important movies in the sense that hopefully with their financial success we will get more movies from Hollywood that have leading actors/actresses and casts that are more representative of everyone in our society.

I think my son liked Thor for the same reasons.  He was out with a lot of friends and they had a great night together and Thor was part of that.   I too really like the first Guardian of the Galaxy and would probably put it as number one on my Marvel List.  DC of course beats everything Marvel. Hell a TV episode of Gotham beats every movie Marvel has ever done. (little jab at jjreason here):)

Now the movie we need made is DC vs Marvel super heros.  We all know how it would end of course with DC winning every round and match up. But it would be nice just to see Superman knocking Thor and Hulks heads together as he writes an article for the newspaper at the same time. :)

Well my daughter and I just watched it.  She has never seen it and this is my second viewing.

I said nothing to my daughter about my feelings about the movie.

Her review " biggest piece of trash " She said they were never true to the character of Thor and the jokes were boring.  She is 17 and in the past has liked the Marvel movies.   

My review has unfortunately not change.   It is on par with Guardians of the Galaxy part 2 - both for me were a waste of time and money.   

With that said - my son who is 15 loved the Thor Movie.  My wife did not like the Thor movie.   

I will have to watch this one again.  I saw it in the theatre and really did not like it at all.  I found everything including the humour just the same old marvel stuff that has just left me bored of anything Marvel.  I wish I did not feel this way but I honestly do not get excited when a Marvel movie is released.

Not sure how many it went down by, but it could be Canadian's who ordered it to be shipped to the states but then order it for direct shipment to Canada and then cancelled their old orders.

I'm at the point in my life, finally, that money isn't the first & foremost issue with this item. There just isn't any way I could ever enjoy it. No room to have it open, certainly no room (or interest) in leaving it boxed.

To me it's like the modern version of the GI Joe aircraft carrier - way better to have it at a friend's house to play with, but not have to deal with figuring out where to put it or how to keep it safe yourself.  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

The perfect Just In Case Scenario.

I need to buy another one, Just In Case, jjreason comes over to my house and rethinks his decision not to buy one.  :rockon:

I would think, at most we would be 10% of America say about 200 units. So the uptick would be small.   I think if we took a poll on this site the numbers would not be that high .   But if they could open this up to the whole world with shipping included and they just have to pay the tax, just like they did for Canada, I think they could make a bigger dent in their numbers.

Not so sure they will make it unless they open it up to the rest of the world.   They still have not reached 50% yet.   Certainly hoping they do.
