Major Retailer in Canada to start selling Transformers!
 
Alright up here in the land of ice, snow, and Eskimos. We tend to have limited options when it comes to buying new Transformers. We have Toys "R" Us, Wal-Mart, with local stores also carrying them.

But after looking at the data, after not selling them for a decade (where toys went to gather dust I'll note). The Bay has decided to start selling Transformers again!

And then they'll deliberately leave out the Transformers brand with the specific intent to spite you.

Because that's what major multi-million dollar companies do; spite random people on the internet.

Will the toys be overpriced like everything else there?

Sades, Inuit just doesn't sound as good as Eskimos.:( Yes I know political correctness.

That being said I compared a few bots on both Toys R Us Canada's website and The Bay's Website, both had the same price. Mind you The Bay's selection was much more . . . limited.

I wish I had been in those meetings when The Bay decided to sell toys again.

The Bay isn't a major player in the Winnipeg market anymore (they've got three stores and one of them is a run-down downtown shithole that they appear to be trying to demolish through neglect), so this isn't going to be a huge boon to me. But it's great that they're at least trying! Like you say, right now it's mostly just Walmart and Toys'R'Us selling toys, so any extra competition is a good thing no matter how small their footprint.

That said, the Bay (and Sears too) are a dinosaur that's well on it's way to becoming extinct, what with their awkward store layouts, decrepit infrastructure and impossible-to-find staff. I doubt this move is going to save them, but hopefully it'll lead to other stores like Giant Tiger or Superstore or whoever to expand their toy offerings.

But I thought Bay ruined Transformers?
