Zellers in Delta (Scott and 72) had them. I didn't check the price though.

If they're priced at $20 then that's a decent price.  I've stated in the past that the $25 being charged in the US was a ripoff and gouging of collectors.  I know some people are desperate enough to pay that +taxes, but I certainly can't justify it (and no one should).  Still no sign of it here in Toronto though... I checked out all the boxes on three huge skids today and not a one was a Star Wars box.  Hopefully it'll get here in time for the next 25% off SW sale.

You can buy the Taun Taun in vintage box at Target for $25 or the Tauntaun with Han & Luke in a Battlepack set for the same price.  Weird.

If someone outlook west buys them, could you give us the item numbers on your receipt?  That would help us track them down.  Thanks.

Found a few of these out my way as well(victoria). I almost got the tauntaun, but I have nothing in the way of a rider for it, so I passed.

I think in Pawlus's Q&A he was speculating the $25 for the vintage boxed sets might be a pricing error, and that only the rescue luke set should be that price, but they all got entered into the system that way. I wouldn't be surprised if that's true. Hence the more sppropriate $20 here in Canada. Who knows though. My local zellers had none tonight, still sitting on some TIEs and snowspeeders, with no room to put more...

Found the tauntauns and landspeeders at my store in southern Ontario - lots of each on the shelf, for the sale price of $12.99.

The UPC numbers from the receipt are:
Tauntaun - 653569678472
Landspeeder - 653569678465

I'm glad to see that other troopers are finding this price as well. So is this some sort of sale or just a mistake?

I'm thinking it's a sale, since when it is scanned it says "$19.99 regular, $12.99 sale".
Just an unadvertised sale I guess. I grabbed a bunch today in case the sale is over by tomorrow.
