I haven't had any issued ordering books.

Good to know. Thanks  :u:

I don't remember ever getting a book from them in an envelope. It's usually just a matter of whether they pack enough material with it to stop it from sliding and bouncing around inside the box.

I don't get many books from amazon anymore, usually preferring chapters/indigo.

Thanks for the info.

Yeah, Amazon actually tries to use as little packing material as possible due to some environmentalists protesting.  I don't order anything from them that I want to keep mint in box.

How well do they handle books? I had to pre-order a Paperback novel from them as Chapters won't be carrying any copies.

Thanks.

I feel bad for the people that spend big money on these thinking they have actual value. They are sorely, sorely mistaken. Anyone considering a bad purchase needs to take a deep breath & let the dust settle - fools will be selling these for shelf price or less a year from now.

Very true.

So they're minimum doubling their money. I guess it's worth it to grab 6 or 8 of them if you find them & scalp. I'm surprised, honestly. I hope some at least some of the buyers are convinced they're getting 80s figures.  :shakehead:

Then you have the sellers with "variants" selling them for a lot more because Hasbro QC is a joke and parts go unpainted. LOL

Personally I think they're going to have a hell of a time making any money off them. That shelf price was batpoop crazy.  :speechless-smiley-004:

On top are the current Canadian listings for Boba Fett alone (and one or two lot listings):

LOL It seems everytime I make a move, it creates something nice.

Managed to buy a good portion of the Retro ESB figures from WM US (obviously except Boba Fett), send them to a friend who will send them thru the border to me.

Then, 2 days later, they show up in Canadian WM stores. My friend confirmed that WM Canada was to receive a few of these... but I just couldn't take any chances I guess.

LOL  :tongue0024: :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

Not the first time I jinx myself. Been doing that over the last few years with numerous WM or TRU exclusive figures. I tell myself that it's me who's responsible for stuff to happen... jinxing myself so the mass can benefit in the end.  ;D

Okay, I'll probably end up paying a little less even with the exchange rate and the shipping... provided I'm not paying customs fees. I managed to grab 2 Fetts for myself, so I'm good now.

So... my apologies for the false alarm on these... looks like we'll be getting a truck load. But their prices... damn it... come one Walmart Canada, you're exaggerating a little bit. My guess is that you think they are the same type of products as TVC... but they're not...  ::)

How much are they at WM here?

Thanks

Ive lost hope for getting this wave at retail... esp with the current situation in the world. Does anyone have any recommendations for Canadian online retailers selling the "Mando" VC wave for a reasonable price? Any help would be appreciated. - Thanks

Here's one:

Very Clone Warsy, I'll give it that. I never finished seasons 4, 5 or 6 but I figured I'd jump on here & risk the spoilers. Hoping the rumors of this season including part of the purge of Mandalore as shown on The Mandalorian are true. Anyone know how many episodes we're getting?

We're getting 12 episodes. 4 episodes for the Bad Batch, 4 for the Siege of Mandalore, and 4 other episodes.

They were also at Real Canadian Superstore, for what it's worth. That's where I saw the only ones I ever saw.

Thanks for the info. Never saw any at Maxi, which I believe is the QC version of those stores.
