    well if you are talking about the giantman wave rough, to be fair, it was just exclusive to walmart first, then other stores were to receive it
    hence why you probably found it at tru

    I wouldn't say that. When it comes to exclusives and Canada formerly TRU Canada (TRU Canadian and US operations merged in TRU north ameica couple months ago) is the best getting most, and Wal-Mart Canada is the worst getting nearly none. It could be that Wal-Mart Canada passed on the Giant-Man wave and TRU Canada took it. As Wal-Mart Canada has passed on every none-main line exclusive offered to them.

    no what im saying is a fact
    walmart was given the wave before everyone else, with the intent to release it to trus and targets later

    I'm sure it is quite factual, in the US. Cross the border the facts change.

    Yeah, actually the ONLY Place I ever saw the Giant Man Wave up here was TRU, I actually recall reading somewhere that ut was a Canadian TRU Exclusive (though there were no stickers) like Black and White Billy Graham.

    the fact is TRU and TRU Canada are (were) different companies, just Like Wal-Mart and Wal-Mart Canada......hell a lot of big companies like that are different in Canada....General Motors Canada, Sears Canada

    Oh yeah, the quality of life here is much much better.....plus there is no class system....like Lower Class and Middle Class and stuff......well, basically there is no lower class.....

    But at the same time there is no Target, K-Mart, Jack IN the Box, Carl's Jr, White Castle , Sonic........

    Well their sub-sidaries. Semi independant. For example I was recently told that Hasbro Canada has to shop around it's exclusives to the retail operations here, regardless of who agreed to release them in the US. And no one but TRU takes them with any sort of regularity. In fact a Target exclusive was just released here. The Transformer movie scouts. At the Loblaws companies stores (aka Superstore).
