Oh I actually found this a few weeks ago at EB Games Vaughan Mills but didn't think it was a new sighting, lol.

But that's more of a specialty store than regular retail.

Re: Rubik's Crew Optimus Prime Rubik's Cube Spotted in Canada

I just bought one today at TRU St.Catharines.
It was in the Games and Puzzles area of the store, not the TF section.
I only saw one at this location, and it seemed to be placed randomly. I didn't look too hard to see if there was a dedicated shelf area with/for more stock.

There were a bunch at my local TRU. I didn't think to pick one up, they were kinda pricey for what you get. But in retrospect now I kinda want one...we'll see.

Saw this a few weeks ago and they are still there at try Vic park.

Didn't think anyone would care. Doesn't look like much of a run is cube.

Re: Rubik's Crew Optimus Prime Rubik's Cube Spotted in Canada

This may not float many people's boat, but it does for me. I collect Transformers and twisty puzzles... so this is like my 2 collections colliding!

I bought one at the Etobicoke location. It was marked as $19.99, but was actually on sale for $14.97.

The cube itself moves okay, but doesn't corner cut at all. The movement isn't buttery smooth like Chinese speed cubes, but given that Rubik has been long surpassed by those companies, I wasn't expecting anything great.

In robot form, it balances well on its legs and the arms can move up and down. Overall, I'm happy with as it's a nice addition to my collections. I hope they release more, but doesn't seem like there's much interest.

Re: Rubik's Crew Optimus Prime Rubik's Cube Spotted in Canada

Yeah, I'd totally buy cubes for Megatron, Starscream and Bumblebee. They're cool to display and to mess around with. I've solved the cube only once so far, pure luck, I suck at puzzles. lol
