Re: Ontario Transformers Toy Sightings

So I called Hasbro Canada today about the price jacking on all tfs especially g1 they told me G1 astrotrain is priced at msrp 49.99 so why is Walmart charging us 69 I told them we’re paying more for less cause the figures are being made smaller than usual so she took my name info what I called about and sent it to the transformers team.

I think thatís USD price cuz peeps south who reviewed him said it was $50 like siege leader price in US and A. G1 Soundwave was $69 CAD at Walmart too if I recall accurately when I saw him.

There is no way in hell that even after 30 years that this price isnt gouging...definitely a NO ....first optimus at a overinflated price for 1/2 a toy and now this trend to ripe off pricing....

Like it or not??
That's the trend I dont see what the issue is.
The US walmart price is fair and it's a reduced price already.
Then let astrotrain clog shelves till they reduce price.
Simple.

Re: Walmart Exclusive G1 Astrotrain Released in Canada

Found today in Ottawa. They were on the display originally used for the 35th anniversary figures along with Spinister, Crosshairs, Apeface and WFC Astrotrain.

There were only 4 of them and while I'm sure there will be restocks, I imagine this will last as long as Soundwave did. My guess is no price drop, but who knows what Wal Mart will actually do.
