Off Topic / New TF Alternators?
« on: July 23, 2004, 11:31:54 PM »
Has anyone seen these yet?  The last two we got right around the same time they showed up in the US, if I remember correctly.

I am really digging that new hound!  Glad these don't come out in quick waves one after the other, as they are a little pricey, and so far I like what I am seeing and would pick up all that they release.

Joe - skystriker/VAMP

Cobra - The HammerHead, and Cobra BUGG are great toys!  Goofy looking but great.

General Joe Talk / Target In Canada
« on: July 16, 2004, 10:18:44 PM »
I have seen Target Transport trucks for the last 4 or 5 years all over the 401 - they must pick up from a distributer in Canada?  Maybe Maple Syrup?

On a different note - Target and Zellers have carried very similar "store" brands for years - I think the clothing line is called Cherokee, why I know this is beyond me!

I love Canada, but I envy American consumerism.

Ontario / 3 pack with SpyTroops movie
« on: July 12, 2004, 08:51:48 PM »
it is the SE/Duke/CC set with the Spy Troops video for $14.99  - not worth it for just a VHS copy of the movie - I don't own a VCR any more.
They also had Wave 3 at the toysrus I was at - $12.99 getting closer to the Wal-Mart's arrival time - the WalMart near me still doesn't have them.

Ontario / rumors of new vehicles in Ontario

I didn't see it this weekend - went to several TRU's and WalMarts in the Mississauga/Oakvill area.

Ontario / BTR @ Loblaws
« on: July 09, 2004, 06:50:33 PM »
I doubt it as the BTR stuff has basically gone to liquidation, Loblaws/Party Packagers are all selling them insanely cheap.

ToyRus is also selling most of the stuff under $10 - I picked up the Hovercraft with BlowTorch for $9.96. far cry from the $50 so dollars the orignally had it priced at.

Ontario / Season 1 part 2
« on: July 07, 2004, 08:37:17 PM »
WooHoo - I am winning the paid the most for a cartoon!  Wait a minute... that probably isn't something I should brag about!

Ontario / Season 1 part 2
« on: July 07, 2004, 08:58:10 AM »
I got mine from - $86.  I looked everywhere for the first part and couldn't find it and had to break down and buy it online - so I didn't even try to find this one at retail.

General Joe Talk / Comic 3 packs
« on: July 04, 2004, 10:05:44 AM »
Now that the con is in full swing - is there any word if Canada will get these?  This would be the first new Joe item, that I would purchase to have one in package to display and one to open - plus another to customize.

Mike - have you seen them on an order list at all?

Damn I want these!

Off Topic / G1 Transformers at TRU
« on: June 27, 2004, 06:09:47 PM »
This apparently isn't at all of the TRU, as I was in Brampton today (ahhrgg, I hate being in Brampton!) and they had several of the G1 releases at full price, however they had several of them that I havn't seen in a long time - Rodimus Prime, Hot-Rod, ThunderCracker, Ultra Magnus etc.
However they were all full price, lowest price was $39.99

Ontario / Wave 3 VvV in Canada
« on: June 27, 2004, 01:42:18 PM »
was at both WalMarts in hamilton (that I know of) and they had Wave 3, picked up a snow wolf/ bat pack finally - I think I am in the minority, but I really like the Snow Wolf/Snow Serpent figure - would army build if I could find him.

The bat is also in better colours, no more purple bike shorts!

Ontario / Toys Toys Toys GIJoe sale
« on: June 24, 2004, 09:33:44 PM »
I saw a while ago that they had the Grunt/Destro 2 pack, that is one of the few that I missed (along with the Zarana/Gung-Ho pack)  of course by the time I got there they were sold out - and yep, lots of Barrol Rolls, and other Wave 5 figs (no army builders of course)
