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.

These prices... they be going up

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...

https://yakfaceforums.com/main/2021/08/09/even-more-price-increases-coming-soon/

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

Boba Fett Prototype: How Many Canadian Versions ?

Just wondering if anyone has figured out how many different versions of the Retro Boba Fett Prototype made it to Canada ?  I have seen in Canada the Red, Blue, Green and Yellow head versions.   I watched a video and there appears to be an Orange and Purple head also, could be more, but not sure if these made it to Canada.   Those who were lucky enough to get one, maybe take a look at what you got and report back so we can figure out what versions made it to Canada.
