Same here and I am the East opposite of you. I saw a Star Wars boxed that looked like it had been thrown off a truck at Oshawa Centre EB Games. Someone bought it though.

Sill no excuse for the high prices in Canada.
For example Mortal Kombat sells at regular price for $299usd with today's exchange rate it = $388.93 Canadian. They are way overpriced here in Canada at $529.99

There is a new SF2 cabinet on the way with light up marque and light up buttons and a better directional joystick. Likewise a new Pac-Man cabinet with more games and an updated look. Not a good time to be laying down bucks on the existing stock unless it’s a fire sale.

Has anyone been going to Treasure Island lately to see if they have stock? Their prices were good, although stock was sporadic. I haven't seen a listing on Auctionmaxx for a while now.
c'mon get happy!

The US$299 one does not come with a custom riser. Mortal Combat here has a custom riser worth $70-80.

One with riser in the US is US$399

US$399 - $529 CAD

Both stores get their stock from Walmart returns/offloads. There might be a good chance those newer units sitting on store shelves in Walmart might make it to the liquidators in Feb.

Walmart.com has the one with riser also and it's $349.99 usd.

That's MSRP and they were $100 less for black Friday and boxing day. We are getting screwed here in Canada.

Unfortunately the units are distributed by a 3rd party in Canada and they don't carry the supply levels you see in the U.S. You never see 10 TMNT boxes in a pile here at Walmart like you do in the U.S. Walmart.

MSRPs are the same but the sales in the U.S. are crazy at Walmart stores at times depending on where you live.

Again - sadly for us the sales never seem to come to Buffalo. :(

Yeah I would imagine the economic status in Buffalo does not generally warrant a sale. But you would perhaps think otherwise. Maybe they know CDNs are coming in to take them.

Thanks. Standard shipping to Winnipeg, MB is $45 USD. Total for the Marvel is $444 USD. The big question is... what's the custom/duty fee?

AuctionMaxx has a bunch of 1Ups listed on their site. Problem is it says Preview, so they are not available yet. Something to keep on a watch list for those interested.
c'mon get happy!

This morning they are available for purchase, including a single TMNT cabinet for $357 with riser

Edit: it doesn't show the custom riser in the included photos

Yeah I looked the next day, all gone! Probably because they had only one of each.
