Whole wave 2 of 3.75" 5POA TLJ (Leia, DJ, R2...) is available on Amazon.ca right now. Search for "Force link star wars".

Walmart exclusives Star Wars The Black Series 3.75-inch figures from TFA have rollbacked to 7.97$ online. That includes the Lando/Ackbar wave.

I think it's the first time they reach that low price at Walmart.

You have also to know that in some provinces, like here in Québec, it is prohibited by law to have stores other than depanneurs (or other exceptions) to be open at midnight.

So sad right now, when I saw the pictures of the A-wing online it looked like it was a new mold but, it's not, it's the Hera one repainted.
On the back of the box they have used photo manipulation to make it look as if it is larger because when I stand the pilot next to it in the same position shown on the packaging she looks way bigger than in the picture.
I have looked at it from every angle and I'm sure they have messed with the sizes somehow.
I really feel that this is false advertising.
I've been a collector for over 26 years now and I own at least one of every vehicle released since 1995. This does not include re-releases. For example, I have the Millennium Falcon from 1995 and 2010 BMF but not the ones that came out after or in between, I only have so much room.
However,  I have looked at packaging from every other release of the same molds; I've seen them use odd angles or forced perspective to sometimes imply that a vehicle is a little larger than it actually is but nothing like this.
I just looked at the Hera A-wing packaging online, since I returned that piece of podoo about 24 hours after I bought it,  and they didn't do it for that packaging. She looks huge standing in front of her A-Wing.
Wow Hasbro/Disney if this was the same size as the 80's version I would have bought 3-4 of them...now I'm already thinking about returning the one I bought and purchasing the pilot off Ebay, when the prices drop, or just wait until clearance.

Look at this youtube video around 6:20 for a size comparison of TLJ A-Wing vs. all the previous A-Wings. It's really different from Hera's and the size is similar to the Vintage/POTF A-Wing:

Where do you see free shipping on Target.com? It asks me 28$ for shipping the Maul two-pack?

Just to let you know that the 3.75" Jedha Revolt 4-pack with Saw Gerrera is on clearance at Walmart brick and mortar for 25$ instead of 35$ (or even 37$ at TRU). 25$ is IMHO a fair price for this set.

Amazon.ca now sells Hera Syndulla's A-Wing, for a mere 40$. (!)

The Maul set even appears on the TRU website now. Unavailable.

Amazon.com actually pre charges you for any import duties or taxes when you check out. I've put through orders several times. You won't get dinged later, they take care of it all right there at checkout when it's applicable.

And they will even refund you if the duties collected were lower than expected! The last time I ordered from them, they sent me an email 3 months after the purchase to tell me the duties they charged me were 6$ but that The border finally only charged 2$ in the end, so I got 4$ reimbursement.


27
So, I just ordered the two-pack from Amazon.com
17.50$ USD including shipping, which mean around 23-24$ CAD.

If I had bought it in Canada for 19.92 at WM, it would have cost me around 23$ CAD.

That's a pretty fair deal from Amazon.com.

Gosh. Never saw them in MTL or in my home town near Quebec City...

I just got a Fenn Rau. Is anybody in the Montreal area willing to trade it for the Baze Malbus 2-pack?

Hi all!

Did anybody saw the Baze Malbus/Stormtrooper 2-pack anywhere in Canada ? It has been available for months in the States, but I never saw it here.

Found the Raddus/Galen Erso wave at my local TRU in Montreal West-Island. There was a lot of shoretroopers, but only one figure of the other characters.
