James Street had about 7 last weekend.. Not driving 20 minutes back to check.

Im happy to wait it out until after Christmas to buy more. Lots of stock locally.

Pac Man has been a lot of fun this weekend. Everyone loves it. Still debating on my Centipede cab waiting in a box.

i am going to the James Street Walmart today to try and do a return and rebuy so i can offically have the extended return period in effect.

I will snap some pictures and update everyone with what they have there.

This was posted on the Arcade1up Official Fanpage. I believe many of us are aware of this already and those who received their deck protectors, you are lucky =)

"HEY FOLKS! Regaurding those protectors that are being shipped out if you live in CANADA. A friend of mine just called customer service to request his and they told him they will NOT be SHIPPING to Canada anymore. People have supposedly been getting charged $105 upon them arriving in Canada. Therefore he was told they have put a hold on any protectors going to Canada until they can figure this out"

I know there are ways to protect the control panel but this is a product defect and should be corrected by the manufacturer and not by the consumer!

Another good reason for all to just return to Walmart
I like to see how they react when they see that many return!!

well turns out James street Walmart is all sold out - could not find any on the floor and the csr told me that they had sold out.

i did manage to get a new receipt with todays date on it but the csr did the return and rebuy on the same receipt - does anyone think this would be a problem if i try and return during the extended return period ?

they did give me a gift receipt as well for each unit with todays date on it so i guess worst come to worst i could return on those but would only get store credit most likely.

Not surprised. 288 was a great price.

Glad I grabbed them when I did. Now hold and wait.

288 CAD in the Hammer was a better deal but I would grab a Galaga for 249. Also the risers are much cheaper there.

Not cheap enough for me yet, only about a $10 difference with conversion so not worth the drive but if you happen to be there already then sure.

They're actually $22 cheaper after conversation. Less tax in the states helps as well. Definitely not enough to make me drive to the states though. Going in January so I may grab stuff then.

Don’t forget Red Planet that is the distributor in Canada
They should bring all replacement to Canada and ship them to Canadians.
Anyways I think it’s a nice toy but not ready for prime time....

I see online they are cheaper then the pic above but still comes to at least $53 after conversion + local tax + possibly cdn tax at border (of course depends on how long in US, customs officer) but at the end of the day still not worth it for most of us.
