Rogue One Baze Malbus VS. Imperial Stormtrooper 3.75"
« on: June 02, 2017, 07:28:27 PM »

Hi all!

Did anybody saw the Baze Malbus/Stormtrooper 2-pack anywhere in Canada ? It has been available for months in the States, but I never saw it here.

Yes I did. Several times at Walmart stores in the Montreal area over the past few months. But now I think they're basically all gone. I can look for it if you want. I'll keep my eyes open.

Kitchener/Waterloo had them at WalMart in half decent numbers - one store had at least 4 of each set at one point.

Got mine in a BC TRU a few months ago. Never found the Darth Maul 2 pack though.

I actually picked up two of them at TRU a few months ago.  I ended up returning one of them.

So it was a case of blink and you'll miss it.

Gosh. Never saw them in MTL or in my home town near Quebec City...

I just got a Fenn Rau. Is anybody in the Montreal area willing to trade it for the Baze Malbus 2-pack?

I will keep my eyes open. I feel like I saw these in abundance at least for a while but it is true I have not been looking at the SW figures aisle all that much lately!

So, I just ordered the two-pack from Amazon.com
17.50$ USD including shipping, which mean around 23-24$ CAD.

If I had bought it in Canada for 19.92 at WM, it would have cost me around 23$ CAD.

That's a pretty fair deal from Amazon.com.

Usually, $20 and under, they won't bother.  It'll take more time than it's worth for them to collect the GST/PST.  What costs a lot if you get dinged is the carrier's brokerage fees.

Yes, Fedex and Purolator can charge as much as $25 to $30 just for brokerage and handing - even more if it is a higher value item.  Canada Post used to charge a flat rate of $5 plus HST for incoming mail, but I think they are a little higher now.  Avoid the couriers if you can and stick to US Postal Service.
