Quick question though, are we getting ripped off with the Canadian prices? Rodimus is $79.99 USD on BBTS (which is $100 CAD) and the Ark is $159.99 USD on their site (which is $200 CAD). Amazon has both Rodimus and the Ark listed at $120 CAD and $250 CAD respectively. I know that we get free shipping from Amazon, but that's a pretty big price difference.
Holey moley... 160 does NOT equal 250 in any way, shape or form. That's just robbery.

Like most every other product in the Canadian marketplace, we definitely paying more than our American cousins.

I wonder if it is more worthwhile to order those more expensive items through a BBTS and have them sent through a service like CrossBorderPickups.

Good point! Holy smokes, the price difference is like getting a free Rodimus Prime from BBTS versus ordering the same items from Amazon.ca. Of course there will be shipping and duties which may even it out. This reminded me I have some unused BBTS store credit though, so it might be worth it for me...

I mean, if you factor in the shipping from BBTS or any other American retailer, the total price might even out. But the fact that Americans are paying that much less than we are is still significant.

If you have access to that, that might be worth it.

Any reason Wheeljack seems to be missing on the sites except for BBT?

They shouldn't be. I think you'll most likely se orders go up on EB, TRU and Walmart. I think chances are for Rodimus or the Ark though that you might only see them on Amazon and TRU, but could be wrong.

EB might also put the Ark up as they had Black Zarak recently.
