Did someone saw them (the Dollarama Mission Series Figures) in Quebec ? For now, they seem to be sold only in Ontario...

Or maybe because we have a better sense of aesthetics than the ROC so we don't allow crappy-manufacturing-rejected action figures to become toys for our children

Usually, Dollarama doesn't bother with that, but that could be the reason, yes.

No sign of them at my local Dollaramas in Quebec either. Not a big loss considering their quality. I was lucky enough to get the Hera set when it was released before the line was phased out at Walmart.

Just picked up a Hovertank Pilot.  The store had like over 10 of them.  Too bad the price is $34.99.  After taxes, that's like $39.xx.  Almost $40 for 1 stinking figure.  This is ridiculous.

I found my two Tank Pilots late last night, and used two force Friday coupon cards for $ 10 off each. The cards expiry date was Nov.3rd.  Paid about $27 taxes in, about 30% off. :star-wars-smiley-008:

Overall, I saved $330.00 using all my 33 coupons. Bought all my rogue one 5po figures for $5.99 ea. , two packs $11, BS 6" - $19.99 , hot wheels ships $3.66 ea. , AP pilot and speeder $14.99 ea and saved $10 off my voice changer stormie helmet which will be better priced in the future I'm sure. I love these coupons, like last year.

What did you guys buy with your coupons? Speak up ,loud and proud.  :artoo:

Hovertank pilot found in Regina.  Had to battle a crazy Hatchimals line for it though. Been a good few week as I found the 3PO at EB games last week plus they had Starkiller Rey for 1/2 price. And I've got a buddy grabbing me the Stormtrooper bucket in he states next weekend.  :rockon:

Amazons Exclusive Black Shadow Trooper Black Series Helmet was a total bummer for me this morning.
I received it a few days ago. And this morning I opened it , assembled the three pieces and installed new Enegizers . But it does NOT COME CLOSE TO FITTING MY HEAD! ( now I realize I'm not a child and I am 6'-4", but I really thought it would fit) . And the Voice Changer Dosent Work at all. It makes a clicky screatch / static noise but that's it.
It does look nice though, I guess I need an expensive broken wall made so I can hang my expensive , broken "WallHanger" on it. :(

Well that sucks. I got the regular one, it just barely fits my head. Initially I thought the microphone didn't work, but I tried it a few more times and it seems to kind of work (not greatly, sort of staticy too). I wanted this as a display piece anyway, so it does its job, as it does look pretty.

Ya CC1138, it is a nice lookin piece for sure. I'm not returning it. Maybe I'll play with it some more like you did. I'll give it a good shake and bump it on the door jamb...lol

Rogue One Wave 2 is listed in new Wal-Mart Canada Toys and Electronics Gifts Guide flyer. Tried posting a scan of the flyer but it won't post. It says the file is too big.

Went to check after seeing the flyer but nothing new, as usual.

Rebelscum has posted about the flyer:

So I couldn't resist and picked up one of the dollarama 2packs. I got the stormtrooper TIE Pilot pack. I happen to have a carded set of the same from when they were at walmart or TRU, so I was able to compare side by side. Not only is the paint a lot sloppier on the dollarama ones, the sculpting is noticeably less sharp than the previous release.

I would still be stunned if these were bootlegs, but these seem more and more dodgy the more I look at them. I also noticed in the store that some of the figures were missing weapons or they were fallen out of the tray, or the lightsabres were horribly bent in the package.

Bottom line is these seem like crappier versions of the ones we already saw at retail months ago.
