Canadian Equivalent to BBTS and the Like?

So, I missed out on Roboto from the Masters of the Universe Origins line the first time around, but they're doing a refresh of that wave.



But as far as I know, it's only shown up at online retailers like Big Bad Toy Store and its ilk; no go for Amazon, even less so for Amazon.ca (.com seems to have reseller prices from the original release, .ca doesn't even have that), and no sign at Toys R Us or Walmart, either.



Problem is, the price on these seems like it's gone up a bit, and throw in shipping to Canada, and... well, it kind of prices me out of this simple little toy I really want, but don't want quite that much, you know?


And I got to wondering if there were any recommendations for BBTS places, or just Canadian online stores that might have it at a more regular retail price with decent shipping.


Oh, and I checked the places over in the sidebar, to no avail (and Outrun Collectibles is either permanently closed, or opening soon. Getting mixed messages there), after which I decided to make this thread.

Ages Three And Up says they're sold out, but maybe they'll restock?



They were wonderful to deal with and very resonably priced on my most recent Transformers order. They ship with Canada Post too, which was a plus for me. Best of luck.

Re: Canadian Equivalent to BBTS and the Like?

The main places in Canada that feel BBTS like (i.e. retail price plus reasonable shipping and other features) are Ages Three and Up and Toy Snowman.

Ages Three and Up is more polished in website design, but Toy Snowman sometimes has had access to supply no one else has had and sometimes gets stock before everyone else.

I'm not aware of any other stores in Canada that have BBTS's pile of loot, though.

They don't ship! Amazing store, but you need a fence in Laval to get stuff for you, and mail it.

Nope, they ship. Got several shipments from them over the years.
