The Elite Praetorian Guard is actually cheaper on amazon.ca than amazon.com after factoring in shiping and duties and taxes. I cancelled my order on amazon.com.

As for the FO Stormtrooper with Gear,  the cost is about the same on amazon.ca and amazon.com when adding duties and taxes. I ordered 2 on amazon.com and it worked out to about $115.00cdn . Amazon.ca was $113.00cdn for the 2. ( I'm in Ontario).

I did the same Ian. Yeah, with the cost of shipping and exchange rates from the US the .ca site is the way to go.
Thanks for the tip!

Thanks!  Just ordered the FO Stormtrooper with Prime so it came to $55 for me.

I'm on the verge of submitting order for Stormtrooper and Praetorian.  I got both already but can I pass up a chance to get a second for this price?

Hey guys,
I have just made a Amazon.ca purchase and thought I would share just in case anyone else is interested.
I have a huge cart on Amazon full of Star Wars items (28 items) that I have been watching decrease daily.
Well I have pulled the trigger today on five of those items and one of those items is the EntertainmentEarth Exlusive six astro mech droids set from a year ago. I know EE was selling these on Black Friday for $29.99 USD but when I was checking it out it would have really cost me $23 shipping plus duty (maybe) plus the dollar conversion. About $74 Canadian.
Anyways Amazon has just lowered it from $69.99 to &59.99 Canadian dollars with free shipping. That's $10.00 a droid figure. Which is ok, not amazing, but not bad.  They have only two left as of this post.
Here's the link if your interested:

The price keeps dropping.  I wish I held off just a little longer, would have saved $5...haha.  Didn't realize it was dropping like daily.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I was always under the impression that the Amazon price drops happen because a certain item isn't selling well enough according to some internal metric.  So their system begins discounting it daily until the lowered price attracts enough buyers to reduce the inventory level of that item.

That theoretically should mean that if SW collectors can restrain themselves long enough, then the item would drop to some fantastically cheap price before it gets bought up... although every person's definition of "fantastically cheap" will vary.  And also it's XMas time, so some people have to buy their XMas gifts by a certain date (i.e. so that it arrives before Dec 25th), they can't just wait for it to drop to $2.

The Amazon discounting algorithm is basically an easy way to see what items at your local Walmart and TRU are likely going to become pegwarmers (and eventually clearanced out). Whatever you see dropping in price to something really, REALLY cheap, is a future pegwarmer/clearance item at the physical store.  Going by that logic, then 5POA Rose and Hux are the lame ducks while Jedi Exile Luke, General Leia, Yoda, and R2D2 are likely gone from the pegs first...

Just had a price match at TRU in store for the BB-8 Force Link Mega Playset. Price in store was 299.99$. But on Amazon.ca, the price was 121.80$ with free shipping.

So needless to say, the Store Manager was called to the cash register, tried to argue that it was probably not the same product, but had to concede the point. And I stepped out of the store with a 300$ product pruchased for a low 122$.

First time I try to pull out something like this. It worked. Was quite happy.  ;D
