Who knows?  We need a contact as Hasbro Canada to sort all this crap out.

Also want Force Spirit Yoda - for some reason Walmart got 40,000 Luke Jedis but not Yoda

Someone posted on another forum they thought it will come to TRU like IG-11 and the AT-ST did.
I'd take that as pure conjecture though.

I hope he shows up at TRU.  I care about him more than I do about getting the Yoda.

He's already at TRU.  Street dated for December 1st.

SKU?

Post by: Cmdr Bacara on November 26, 2019, 05:15:43 PM
Price is reportedly $44.99

Oooof!  But still better than the General Grievous deluxe.

Price is reportedly $44.99

At least it is not $69.99 like Grevious. Still, it should only be $39.99 based on the US price of $29.99.
Title: Re: Black Series Heavy Infantry Mandalorian
Post by: Wedge1021 on November 27, 2019, 01:27:17 PM
Well, 20% off Star Wars sale starts tomorrow at TRU, so that will bring the price down to $36.

That's IF they include this exclusive in the sale price, cuz sometimes they don't - especially for newly released ones.
Title: Re: Black Series Heavy Infantry Mandalorian
Post by: bobafett108 on November 27, 2019, 02:13:28 PM
or they will be like my local tru, they will wait till the sale is over and then put them out. that is what they did with the IG-11 one.

Same here, but I was able to get an order in on the website for the sale price. Maybe the Mando will go live there in time. Either way, it's an instant buy for me!

What a joke this one turned out to be toys r us in Burlington had 2 - very strange considering a box has 6. She was so rude and horrible customer service. In all honesty I hate exclusives that go to toys r us. Wish they would have closed down like their US counterparts.
Title: Re: Black Series Heavy Infantry Mandalorian
Post by: bobafett108 on December 01, 2019, 10:41:03 AM
do you happen to have the SKU?
Title: Re: Black Series Heavy Infantry Mandalorian
Post by: old man ben on December 01, 2019, 11:29:22 AM
I had a similar experience when checking TRU for the Mandalorian.  The supervisor just snapped at me “if it’s not on the shelf we don’t have it”.  I asked if she could check the SKU in the computer.  She said “it won’t tell you anything”.  Then a minute later “nope.  Nothing”

And yet an earlier experience at Sherway Gardens was nothing but positive.  They went out of their way to help me.

Could be timing - the high volume of people on Friday and Saturday I think was over whelming for the staff and many of them are seasonal helpers who don't really know what they are doing.
Title: Re: Black Series Heavy Infantry Mandalorian
Post by: bobafett108 on December 01, 2019, 02:07:33 PM
went to mine and lucked out was out on the shelf had about 20 of them. think still on sale as it came up 34.99
Title: Re: Black Series Heavy Infantry Mandalorian
Post by: Darth Woo on December 01, 2019, 06:39:13 PM
Nothing here. Hope to find them before sale ends. Can someone post the SKU? Or pm it tk me if you dont want to post on an open forum?
Title: Re: Black Series Heavy Infantry Mandalorian

anyone know if this will be available on their web site like the IG-11 exclusive?
Title: Re: Black Series Heavy Infantry Mandalorian
Post by: Wedge1021 on December 02, 2019, 01:17:21 PM
Was out at my store 3 times in the last 24 hours with no luck. They did apparently have a case at some point, that people had to ask to get brought out, but they either sold out or someone was hiding the rest in the back. One "regular" employee has very helpful and looked all over the store for me, to no avail. The system said in stock, but apparently it doesn't update immediately (they really need a new computer system).

I'm hoping it goes online yet, or shows up in droves in a restock, but I'm doubtful. I think these BestBuy exclusives are lower quantity than others have been. If anyone wants to help out a fellow trooper and is able to pick one up at the sale price yet, I'd be grateful to pick it up from you or have it shipped here to Niagara. I'd even take 2 at the sale price to make the shipping worthwhile, and help out a buddy down here.

I don't trust their website anymore.  I ordered IG-11 and Cave of Evil during their sale and both ended up being cancelled by them.
Title: Re: Black Series Heavy Infantry Mandalorian
Post by: Darth Woo on December 02, 2019, 03:49:25 PM
Still no luck on the Heavy Infantry dude today.  However, they got in the carbonized Mandalorian.  I picked him up but still not sure if I'll keep him or not. 
Title: Re: Black Series Heavy Infantry Mandalorian
Post by: bobafett108 on December 02, 2019, 03:53:08 PM
wish my local TRU had the carbonized. really like the look of them .

I haven't seen one in person, but I wonder if the "carbonizing" couldn't be used for a shinier C-3PO. Since they won't do vac-metal anymore, that might be an alternative.

I'd be curious to see the carbonized mandalorian in person. Might be kinda cool.
Title: Re: Black Series Heavy Infantry Mandalorian
Post by: Darth Woo on December 02, 2019, 07:45:11 PM
He looks nice, but the clothing is shiny too, which is the thing I don't like about it.  If they applied the carbonization only to his armor and metal parts, I wouldn't be mulling over it.

I was inquiring about H.I. Mandalorian at the Yonge & Eglinton location today....apparently they have over 1000 of them in the warehouse... (it was like 1026)....so I would expect to see him online at some point......................................after the sale.

See my link above yours. The idea was to not have the direct link or info in the open forums.

Thanks guys - glad to have this community to give the heads up!

I ordered for in store pickup as it said it was in stock. We'll see if that is true, because as of last night the shelf there was still bare.

LOL they cancelled it already. Top-grade company here. They really need to fix their website issues.

Post by: Eradicator on December 03, 2019, 10:24:44 AM
Well, it let me put in the order. It will be interesting to see if it comes through. The sale price was still applied as well. I ordered the archive Yoda to get the free shipping.
Title: Re: Black Series Heavy Infantry Mandalorian
Post by: Wedge1021 on December 03, 2019, 11:01:45 AM
Can't get an order in now. I keep getting the message "0 in stock" even though it says it's in stock. And now it looks like they've hidden the page as I can't find it by search, just through the direct link above. Probably someone set up the page this morning before they were ready to let it go live - which will happen AFTER the sale.
Title: Re: Black Series Heavy Infantry Mandalorian
Post by: Darth Cujo on December 03, 2019, 12:46:22 PM
When I found it this morning I had gone to the TRU site and did a search for mandalorian. It showed up long with the couple other mandalorian items. It was a nice surprise.

So it was fully searchable on their site at 6:30 this morning.

Also with their pick up in store option I find it is highly unreliable so anything that might be in high demand/short supply I just ship it to my work address. I've had better luck that way.

The Carbonized Mandalorian is up on the site now too, but the same out of stock error comes up.

Early morning toy run yielded a heavy mandalorian taken off the shelf at my Ontario TRU. More details in Provincials
Title: Re: Black Series Heavy Infantry Mandalorian
Post by: Wedge1021 on December 04, 2019, 11:24:41 AM
Well at least they fixed the website to actually say it's not in stock.
Title: Re: Black Series Heavy Infantry Mandalorian
Post by: Eradicator on December 04, 2019, 05:10:58 PM
TRU said my order of the Heavy Mando has shipped so it must be coming.
Title: Re: Black Series Heavy Infantry Mandalorian
Post by: Wedge1021 on December 05, 2019, 02:44:26 PM
The Heavy Mando is in stock again online. When you go to the page, it says out of stock, but change the quantity to 2 and then it works. After that you can change quantity back to 1 in your cart and it continues fine. AAA+ website!
