Spent the afternoon and evening down in the Buffalo area with decent results.  Picked up the Mos Eisley wave(minus Han Solo, for obvious reasons), predominantly at TRU.  Only found one Sandtrooper and one Luke.  Also grabbed a #38 Bespin Vader.  Was tempted by the titanium Sandtrooper(saw both painted and 'vintage' finish at TRU) but ended up taking a pass on it.  Also grabbed some new Attacktix(the ones with the Transformers) and some more Series 3 for the nephews at Kmart and Target.  Walmart had Stormie Han and Chewbacca Unleashed.  I took a pass on these also.  No sign of the Shocktrooper.  Demise of Greivous was warming the pegs at two Targets(on clearance).  Best selection of VTSC was at Walmart.  A lot of cool non-SW stuff like vintage-style GI JOEs, Marvel Legends Famous Covers sets and a lone ML Sabretooth from the GiantMan wave.  Also grabbed a couple of htf WWE Classic Superstars.  Lastly, I found a sweet pair of SW ROTS boxer shorts.

They're COLLECTIBLES.  They don't become TOYS until you take them out of the package.

NO exclusives please - we're Canadian!

Picked up a good chunk of the Tatooine wave today in Grand Forks - everyone but Luke and the Sandtrooper (took a pass on Darth however)

Couldn't find what I was really looking for though - the Target Senate Battle Pack and DoG  :(

RE-HASBRO.COM TOY SITE...SAD SAD SAD ....BUT really was I expecting anything different??...not really.

WHAT A JOKE...I feel very hurt by the fact a company of this size CAN NOT get their act together to provide service to me ...I'M IN CANADA!!!...I see HASBRO has no problem SELLING THEIR Products @ retail level...but can not provide this service over the INTERNET!!!9comic con exclusives!!!)
 
I believe this to be very sad for the TRUE TOY COLLECTOR / child out there(especially here in CANADA!!)!!!
 
HASBRO ,wake up ...smell the coffee...we do live in an age of technology that does allow most companies to sell products to their customers throughout the WORLD!!!

Again...WAKE UP...

Well - after 1 1/2 hours I FINALLY got to order through on Hasbrotoyshop.  Luckily I have a friend in the US that let me ship to his house.

Of course, I couldn't get back on to order a second set.

Hasbro really needs to get Canada into the shipping mix too.  Of course, Hasbo Canada sucks, but that's a different rant.

Just received my Shadow Stormtroopers today and I think they are real sweet!  :party0053:  The packagaing totally reminds me of the expanded Universe figures crossed with OTC just minus the 3d pull out background.

Hey Klaatu, did you have to pay any duties, customs fees etc. ?  I'm expecting mine to show up on Monday, according to the tracking # from SWS.com.

Had to pay a Custom fee of  $16.29 Cdn  which included GST, PST, and a ROD fee.  This wasn't too bad considering I ordered 4 Stormtroopers.
