New "old" finds.
« on: January 16, 2010, 01:39:43 PM »

Went to a London Drugs in Saskatchewan, and came across some 25th Joes........for, get this.........$4.
Scored a much sought/much wanted Matt Trakker and COBRA Eel.
These were in the international cards, like most Canadian releases have been--but still nice to see and cannot argue with the price.

awesome score. Your find totally reminded me of my childhood joe buying in a drug store in a small town in Alberta. Price was about the same too. I think $4.99 (total)

The nice thing is that London Drugs and other retails chains across the country often offer up discounts on toy stock  a couple weeks into the new year. Superstore was also clearing ROC items for about $5, irrc.
London Drugs seems to be the place to find the harder-to-find-stuff--namely Joe figures, and Marvel Universe stuff. It depends on what one is looking for though--as both my finds were not seen anywhere else in my area before, to my knowledge.
