Has anyone heard whether or not Toys R Us will be getting the Target US Exclusive Antoc Merrick X-Wing?  I see it's already hitting brick and mortar Targets so I  thought we might have heard something by now.  I haven't seen the retro prototype Stormtrooper up for order at toysrus.ca either.  Hopefully the new ownership doesn't have an aversion to bringing in Target exclusives.
Saw an article that mentioned the Burlington (ON) Mall was opening a Zellers pop-up shop with emphasis on clothing, toys and housewares: https://ca.finance.yahoo.com/news/zellers-makes-a-comeback-with-pop-up-store-at-hudsons-bay-180209163.html.

I was interested by the toys part but was skeptical because one of the photos showed what looked like the old toy section just with Zellers signage. Plus toywise there has been little new in-store or online especially Star Wars.

I decided to take a look. It was as expected the old toy section rebranded as Zellers. Across from the toys is the clothing and housewares section. There is red paint on the floor to delineate the Zellers section.

There were a lot of toys on clearance and I saw little new. There was no new Lego or Mega Construx. As for Star Wars the only new items I saw were Mattel The Chi

Putman Investments to buy Toys 'R' Us from Fairfax, brimming with ideas for overhaul

VAUGHAN, ONT. -- Toys "R" Us and Babies "R" Us Canada are getting a new owner, who is already full of ideas for how to revamp the retailer.

Putman Investments said Thursday that it will purchase the Vaughan Ont.-based brand and its 81 toy and children's stores from affiliates of Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd.

The company didn't reveal the deal's value, but Fairfax chief executive Prem Watsa said in a statement that his company will benefit from a continuing royalty stream and keep the real estate it acquired when buying the retailer for $300 million in 2018 from its U.S. parent, which had filed for bankruptcy protection.

Yakface recently reported about this coming price increase for all toys, not just Hasbro toys, to happen in the near future.  It's pretty tough to stomach given that the last price increase (which technically happened at the start of August) is just barely being digested when an even bigger increase is coming...

Tonight I was musing to myself when this would happen. It's really tough seeing a formerly $18 TVC figure now going for $20.  Then I happened onto Amazon.ca and saw that uhhhh, the new-new price increase seems to already be coming into play?

Emperor's Royal Guard is $23
