Bludgeon is tight, but i was never a fan of the TF1 blackout mold.

Holy poop! Did Calgary just scoop the rest of Canada? Has that happened before?

Wasn't really into these figs the first go around, so I can't see myself biting at this price.

50 bucks is a ripoff? I don't follow.

That's 45 bucks worth of toys plus 5 bucks markup. Seems fair.

Wouldnt this set essentially be the same as the Blackout, Scorponok set? Why the crap is it so much more expensive. Wasn't the other set only like 34.99?? Is TRU getting pricing tips from Zellers?

Thanks for explaining to us why the set is a rip-off

Saw quite a few @ one of the Ottawa locations too... I can smell a sales/clearance coming...

The regular Deluxe and Voyager prices include markup too, you know, and typically when you buy many items packaged together you expect to pay less than what you'd pay if you bought each item individually, not more.
