DarthDerek for Retro think Dorkside $10.50 per figure vs. $17.99, even with the exchange and a 20% sale in Canada you come ahead and you will get case fresh.   
Yes for the retro waves, they are $9.99 in the US and $17.99 in canada. Bloody ridiculous. Seems like it is Hasbro Canada messing us up. So in this case it's cheaper to buy from the US. Hopefully Dorkside ships them. I've had 2 of my last three pre-orders canceled by them.


I am so unimpressed with the exclusive offer. I had all 4 in the cart and then they kept dropping out. I finally  purchased the Hawk and Echo. I have shipped many times from TRU so I had no concerns. But for some reason I couldn't complete the purchase. That's because, even though I pay $20 for shipping with no discount because I am considered remote:

TOYS R US NO LONGER SHIPS TO MY POSTAL CODE

I just bought from them in February and had it shipped out to me. No problem. But now. I'm 1.5 hours from TRU. Sure there's 1.5 hour drive in Calgary to some of the TRU, but they get the shipping.

TRU shipping is getting worse. They upped their minimum for free shipping,  they used to ship to PO boxes, then they stopped without updating their policies (I had parcels sent back because they shipped courier to a PO Box, despite their own policy). Now they at least updated their policy to let everyone know they don't ship to PO boxes. And now this... this is worse. Pretty bad you won't even ship to some locations. All about them cheaping out on their shipping.

Yeah, TRU sucks.  Also, they never respond to inquiries.  I did 2 price adjustment requests since November and never got a response on any of them.

I'm just going to hope I get lucky and find Echo as I was only able to get the other 3.  I'm not willing to order another $75 worth of stuff if Echo becomes available just to get him.

Frustrated with TRU. I was home in Ontario last week & couldn't order the Tantive IV set, couldn't even find it in fact. Get home to Regina & of course it's back available... and in stock 2 km from my house in Kitchener.  :speechless-smiley-004:


I'm sure it's possible they got more stock.... but I'm pretty convinced it was more likely website poopiness.

Could be the one I returned. It had a big hole in the side of the box.  Definitely poopiness at its best.

I tried during the sale as well - it wouldn't even come up on the website. Now that the sale is over, it's online and showing in stock in my city.

I saw it up for pre-order but passed. Not my cup of tea.

Same here. I was about to order two, than I remembered reading your comment. And told myself: What the Hell am I doing? This is the kinda stuff I never dreamed of buying, yet I was about to buy it just because it was available. Thanks for these words, they helped me getting back to my senses. :)

Haha, this is the conversation I have with myself about figures that look cool but are not OT. Sometimes I give in and sometimes I don't.

This one fits my Boba collection so I went ahead. I quite like it. I would have gotten Vader if it was available. But I refuse to pay secondary market value on these. That's where I draw my line.  :)

And thanks for the heads up on this. Didn't think we would ever see this since vader never came here.
