The end of a 10 years adventure...

Good evening to all,

I hope everyone is well.

Some big news tonight: some of you already know, some probably expected it. I wanted to inform everyone that Automaton Toys will be closing itís doors at the end of April

The reasons are quite simple: itís just too much for me to manage the store, work the day job and take care of my family and friends. One of the above had to go and the choice, if not easy, was clear.

I want to say a gigantic thank you to everyone who supported both Mario and me during all these years. Canadian Transformers fans are truly great!

Best Regards to everyone of you out there,

Jasmin.

Re: The end of a 10 years adventure...

As a fellow TF vendor, I can totally relate. TF specific vendors are often stuck in that middle ground of loving what they do, but not able to make a living at it (hence the day job), not to mention the usual goodies of family, friends, etc. I have heard nothing but great things about your store, and while we've never met in person, you're absolutely right, Canadian Transformer fans are the best.

Re: The end of a 10 years adventure...

Sad to see Automaton Toys close its doors.

For what it's worth, my first order with Automaton was on October 26 2008, and was a preorder for both red and silver Alternity Primes.

Wish you the best of luck going on forward, Jasmin.
Thanks for having the backs of the Canadian TF fans all these years!
