It will be interesting to see if they do open it up to International - how big the spike in backers is.  If we take our site into consideration, 25 people in Canada, 50 ? Just not sure how many of us are out there that will be jumping on board.

I hope they figured out a way around the legal issues of Hasbro not being able to solicit funds from the International public to fund the Barge. Seriously....if the border opens up, I would consider purchasing between 3 to 5 of them as the secondary market prices for Vintage Collection toys are strong with the force. A vehicle/playset like this will probably never be made again if it's released.

The Vintage Collection toys are awesome to collect and a solid investment. Heck I will give $500.00 to Hasbro if they stop making 5POA 3.75 inch figures (just kidding about giving them money, but they really need to stop making poor quality 5POA 3.75 inch toys).

Thanks, DD. It's certainly frustrating.  Don't get me wrong, it's not like I've got $500 USD lying around to drop on every random thing that comes up, but for an opportunity like this you find a way, whether via budgeting, advance birthday gift support ("Hey, mom and dad... I know it's not for a few months... but...") or even selling off some items of lesser interest in the collection.  But I guess it's a moot point so far.

P.S.  I like the word "moot".

What's frustrating is the dichotomy of it all.

If tomorrow I started a toy company and asked for the rights to sell 3 3/4" or 6" figures in Canada from Disney, you better believe that Hasbro would have the lawyers suited up with contracts and it'd be quashed so fast my head would spin.

But then they consistently manage to NOT provide products to Canadians.  Haslab is no different from HasbroToyShop in that regard.  Not to mention the number of exclusives that do not cross the border, even when that company operates in Canada... or are all the Kylo Ren Throne Room figures at Canadian Walmarts invisible and I have just been missing them?

Been this way forever.  It's so tiresome being the red-headed step child in this relationship.  If was standing in front of Hasbro US right now, I'd be telling them they owe me for every penny for shipping + the overage on the 2nd market on every figure I had to buy online shipped from the US because it simply wasn't available here, even though they have exclusive rights to sell here!
