amazon.ca has the exclusive Stormtrooper 4-pack in stock - only 3 as of this moment - 105.99: http://www.amazon.ca/STAR-Black-6-Inch-Stormtrooper-4-Pack/dp/B011EG5DG4/ref=sr_1_1?s=toys&ie=UTF8&qid=1448724335&sr=1-1&keywords=star+wars+black.

Does anyone just want the FO Sandtrooper and battle-damage Stormtrooper? I only want the 2 clones but hate to spend $120 for them.

The only figure not available online is Princess Leia.

So are there any plans for the USA exclusives to come to Canada?

Darth Vader Emperor's Wrath - Walgreens
Battlefront Shock Trooper - Wal-Mart
Poe and Riot Trooper 2-Pack - Target
Starkiller Base Kylo Ren - K-Mart

I was able to get Kylo Ren from K-Mart by shipping it to my border store that is 45 minutes away and located in the USA and had a friend pay in store at a K-Mart for me.  Target won't allow their 2-Pack to ship to Canada for whatever reason, despite adding Canadian shipping.  The Shock Trooper has the best chance since Wal-Mart is in Canada while all those other retailers are not.  The only one I want (not including Kylo since I did get him) is the Emperor's Wrath Darth Vader.  Hopefully someone gets them :(

I posted it above.  I am new here but it seems a lot of users here are scalpers?  Not really liking it.

I doubt we'll get any of them.  The best chance is Superstore getting the Riot Trooper and Poe as they have in the past received Target Exclusives.

It's not the users (members) that are scalpers, it's the lurkers.  The ones who come on to the site as guests and see the location of new finds.  Usually that information is posted in the provincial forums, access to which is only given to actual members who have been posting for some time, or are granted such by a mod.  The members here are a great bunch and try to help each other out.  Even picking up figs for others and shipping to them, charging nothing but the cost of the item and the actual shipping.

Welcome to the boards!

Yeah I also misinterpreted one post, and I apologize.

I will have to go hunting for Wave 3 of the 3.75" line at my local Wal-Marts soon!

And if you're like me, who I think enjoys the thrill of the hunt more than the actual acquiring of toys, I actually like going hunting for other members and helping them out! I know…I'm perhaps a bit odd  :crazy: but hey, allows me to have the thrill without forking out my cash (at least not permanently anyway)!  :D

But I get the "temptation" to scalp. You see other people basically making the same effort you do to get the toy and then making a profit…so why not you? I would NEVER do this to a member here but I get why doing so to the "anonymous" world out there can be tempting. I don't do it but sometimes, you know, you stumble upon 3 TVC Emperor's Royal Guards (and you already own 2 and don't really need more) and you think, I know these guys are going for $50 on ebay…do I leave them? Do I buy them and sit on them? Do I buy them and post them at cost on the boards? (this is hypothetical, I know these guys are no longer being found in the wild). And you know what? I've even been taken for a ride on rebelscum buy/sell forums! I sold a guy some figures once, long time member too, and then saw him put them on ebay a few days later for a pretty sweet profit! So, yeah, its hard to be the "good guy" all the time when all around you people are both just going for it and sometimes even treating you like a sucker. But so far, I've resisted and only feel justified in demanding a higher price once the item is no longer available and the demand may be justifying it being worth more.
