I can't remember who or in what thread, but thought someone was looking around for the 6" Snowspeeder.
Here's another place to pick one up if you need it:

Thanks Wedge, I hedged my bets & put an order in. If EB comes through I'll buy that one as well & have a second one to set aside for another trooper if someone else is stuck.

Hmm yeah I'm still looking to get a snowspeeder. I'm hoping TRU will get more stock. There's gotta be a decent amount of them produced.

I was just at my local Toys R Us store today at lunch and they had the Black Series Snowspeeder in-stock. Please see the provincial forums for the location.

So Toy Snowman doesn't mess around - paid about 2 days ago & got notice my snowspeeder was shipped today via canadapost! Pretty happy! Hopefully it arrives in reasonable shape, in a reasonable amount of time.  :love0030:

Ordered the VC 501st Arc Troopers 3-pack, the Black Series Wampa in vintage packaging, and the Black Series ROTJ Endor set from HasbroPulse.

Since there is no FanExpo Canada this year, more than likely these will show up at EB Games or Toys R Us later on as both companies have sponsored the Hasbrostore exclusives in the past few years.

Thanks for your post Ian.  I missed out on the Vintage set.  I have been working hard outside and was sodding yesterday and did not notice these went up for sale.  Hopefully you will be right and I will get another chance at these.

I missed out on that 3 pack as well. Hopefully these are released again, even in a different format would be fine.

Not exactly true. BEcause I've tried several purchase configurations before to make sure I wouldn't be stuck at Checkout.

They do accept PayPal, but only for "In Stock" items. For "pre-order" items, probably because they will not charge before the items are in stock and ready to ship, they need you to commit your purchases with a credit card.

So I ordered the 6'' Wampa, a Power Droid and the Clone Troopers 3-pack (all in stock items) and could pay with Paypal. :-)

I just needed help from my friend Wedge (thanks buddy) to have this package shipped to his place because they don't ship to Quebec (damn Bill 101).

Has anyone ever dealt with Duclos toys?
Placed an order with them about 6 weeks ago for Power droids and haven't heard anything from them.
I called them a couple of times in the past, before I placed my order, to find info about their store and no one ever got back to me.
So, I'm not even sure if i should call to inquire about my order, if they don't respond to simple questions about their product and store than how will they be if I ask about an order?

I dealt with him but only during Toy Shows in Montreal. He's a nice guy. But what I suspect is that he's not able to get the Power Droid wave at all. Most retailers have problems getting this wave from Hasbro, and even more the small hobby shops. Most of the small shops got their orders cut drastically.

So yes I would inquire about your pre-order. Ask him directly if he thinks he will ever get his stock. I suspect he's second or third level in the distribution chain (one of my friends gets his stock from Hasbro, then redistributes the stock to small shops like Duclos Toys).

At worse, I suggest you take no chance and order this figure from Amazon.ca. As per last week, it was still available, now in stock starting Oct. 1st. I think Amazon, like Walmart and TRU, maybe have first dibs on Hasbro's stock... or they get their stock thru other channels.

Strange, aren't all package from Hasbro (at least Star Wars) tri-language. if so, bill 101 isn't the cause, right?

and it's strange that we still can order the Power Droid (1 per case) but Luke (2) and Wolffe (3) are selling for more than 30$ right now

I'm also happy and lucky to being friend of your friend.
