Ambasah:

Did you noticed the description of the bb8 set?

Star Wars Force Link BB-8 2-in-1 Mega Playset (without Force Link)

Are all Canadian sets without force link?

I didn't notice it. I can't imagine they made 2 versions at this scale/price point. Likely a typo. But, amazon has the best return policy in the business, so there is no harm in checking it out if interested.

They did this for the big At-At. Canadian ones only made sounds and had none of the spoken lines from the movie.

I remember why it says no Force Link.

Hasbro released two versions of this. One came with a force link bracelet and the other didn't. So they are identical except one was slightly cheaper cause it didn't come with the bracelet.

Darth Woo is correct. According to the Aug 30 Hasbro press release http://www.jeditemplearchives.com/2017-08-31-press-release-hasbro-the-last-jedi-fall-2017-line/, BB-8 playsets in Canada, France and Spain come without the Force-Link bracelet.

It is also interesting to notice that the Force Link set that you can buy in Canada has two versions, in English or in French. Maybe this explains why it was impossible to join a Force Link with the BB-8 playset.

I am pretty sure it is force link compatible, it just doesn't come with the force link device.

In case it wasn't clear from the Hasbro press release, yes the Canadian version of the BB-8 playset is Force-Link compatible as Darth Chadus says. My nephew has the Canadian version and it works with the bracelet from the starter sets.

I was able to pick up the Centerpiece statues the other day. They are right around 50% off. The Vader one looks nice and it got some decent reviews. I will have to check out the BB-8 set. I was kind of hoping for the Force Link though but shipping from the US would probably be insane.

It is Force Link compatible.  It just doesn't come with the Force Link bracelet.  They wouldn't be allowed to sell it in Canada if it came with the bracelet, unless they made a separate one that came with the French version.

If you want it and it's a good deal, I say just get it.  I'm sure the Kylo Ren with Force Link bracelet will go on clearance after Christmas if that is the deal breaker for you.

I just bought the Amazon FO Stormtrooper for $26 so I can refund my $50 one.  Didn't realize though that Amazon charges shipping for refunds.  No wonder they don't do price adjustments.  At least I'm still ahead doing this.
