Pretty uncool they have the ****** Canadian non-picture cardbacks though.

Hey!  >:(

Heh, sorry if I offended you. I just don't like 'em is all.

Yes, it's like a lava lamp...

Hey Aaron, nice score! Is it unusual for you guys to score stuff first?

Or two lava lamps...

Anyway, yeah, Canada misses out a lot on distro. For one thing we don't have Target up here of K-Mart, so all those exclusives never make it this way.  :(

Hasbro Canada is not distro-ing the final 12 ROTS figs up here either. I think that's why we just happened to get TSC so soon. It has happened a few times before that the final wave of a line didn't come up here to regular stores. Transitional OTC wave comes to mind as well.

As far as getting stuff first, unless there is a solid release date like with the ROTS line, things usually show up State-side first and slowly filter their way up here.

That answer long enough for ya?  ;D

Damn...beaten. I scored Bib at a con today. :D I never do that, but I haven't been out to one in a while and I was in a buying mood... All done with ROTS, and...I dunno, it's the holidays, that spending time of year. :P I paid about $10, but he's BEAUTIFUL! :-*

LOL, understatement of the year there, here's the Canadian history lesson for modern:

POTF2 - last two waves never made it (RH Vader, etc.); also never saw the EU figures at retail
Commtech - two figures never made it locally, though they were found elsewhere
Episode I - last two waves - R2-B1, etc.
POTJ - last two waves (seeing a trend yet?)
Saga - everything after Djas Puhr or so - more than two waves
Post -OTC - final wave, though the first POTC wave came
ROTS - final 12.

Since you're new here MYOB, please-you have no idea what you're talking about.
Additionally, I'm only toying with the ancient relic.
Additionally, Additionally, research the website to explore the intriguiness that becomes a grumpy old man ;D

Additionally3, wake up and smell the Sanka- I'm not mad at anyone( I could however, be slightly irritated with your untimely comments to be honest ;))
