I've stumbled onto something that may be the answer to our collecting woes.
I can't really say much at this point as the ball on this has just begun to roll, but imagine if you will: a one-of-every-figure club, from a Canadian source, (thus supporting Canadian small business and our economy by keeping your Canadian dollars in Canada) at tax-in prices that rival that of the big three retailers; with a no-fear-of-duty shipping vs wasted time & gas trade off. notably on US cards for you carded collectors out there.
let me encourage you to think about it one more time; I have heard that the next thing hasbro is bringing into Canada is the clone wars army builder 3-packs and one, that right, 1 wave of clone wars figures on tri-logo cards, sometime after September. that's it. anything that hasn't shown up here already, isn't going to, so you can stop looking. given the evidence on store shelves and the fact that hasbro refuses to respond to my phone calls, I am inclined to believe what I have heard.
I personally think that this is an opportunity that we can not let pass by.
here is what I need from all of you to move this to the next step:
are you interested in this opportunity? (even if you are not, please post a reply)
what & how much of it, do you currently buy? (feel free to list more than just sw)
where are you getting it from?
what else would you buy if it was readily available? (again, feel free to list more than just sw)
this is of course open to more than just Canadians so if you live outside Canada, please also state which country you are from.
even with the new found strength of the Canadian dollar, exchange rates are still very favorable, so this could be of benefit to those living outside Canada.
it is sometimes hard to tell who the Canucks are here on the board so if you know of any that have not posted a reply, or anybody else that may be interested, please pm them and direct them to this thread.
