I went to my Burke's Outlet the other day.
They had a ton of Green Lantern 4in stuff.
Many of what were supposed to be the walmart exclusive guardian packs.
Also had a test pilot Hal Jordan.

looks like 4-6 are showing up in Canada but the asking price is ridiculous. Wonder if they will see release stateside. In the past i have heard of Canadian release first then within a couple of months it makes it way stateside. Hope it does and in good quantity

I hate when Canada gets stuff because it seems like it's filled with dudes looking to scalp for big bucks to the US. Maybe they feel the same way about us? It's not like they just want a few extra bucks - they want a ton of extra bucks. Blame Canada, indeed.

Toys are really expensive up there. I have visited Canada a few times to visit in-laws over the holidays and gone hunting and have been jaw dropping shocked at the prices and also the lack of places to buy them. Even walmart and tru in canada is seriously over priced compared to US but yes i agree with your assessment. The prices were set with the exchange rate in mind but even when we reached a 1:1 exchange rate (and the canadian dollar keeps beating the US dollar) the prices stayed the same and were in the upper end. For example say if MU was 6.99 here there it was like 9.99-12.99. I remember seeing those mu tru 3 packs from a while back at TRU in canada for 34.99/39.99 and the same here for 24.99/27.99. Their sale taxes are also insane 14%+

What scares me is like when Dick Tracy bombed and all of the No-Face figures went to Canada because nobody here ordered wave 2.

For anyone that wants, I can get some of these 4-6 Guardian sets, though they are a bit pricey at 19.99 each. Would do it for cost plus actual shipping for anyone that wants. Lmk by PM or email.

Had never heard of Burke's Outlet before it was mentioned here but I checked and there was one on the toy route I was taking today so I made it a point to stop. Yep, they had Guardian sets for $2.99... Numbers 1, 2 and 3... :(

I'm not a GL fan, but I keep seeing these super cheap and am tempted to pick some up.
I even saw the 6in figures super cheap at Marshalls earlier. $3.99.
Saw more 6in at Ross.

Seems like these days Mattel and Hasbro end up selling alot of the canceled stuff to Canada or overseas. I think that the Young Justice Ivasion 6 inch figures will end up in Canada......
