This part of the site is designed to help everyone find the action figures or collectibles that they are looking for by posting what you see as new releases in our fine Canadian retailers and hobby shops. This will let people know that Diamond Comics shipments have arrived. The way it works is that you send me an email at, then I post that email here on the site. The first email that is received on a certain subject and/or location will be posted.

Please put the name of the toy (preferably in the subject heading), and the name of the retailer (or type, ie Hobby shop) and the location (can be broad as in Province or specific city).

Please put your name in the email and your address is optional. If you do not want your name or email printed with your message, please say so at the end of the message. Thank you!

Receive an Official Mew from Toys 'r' Us

Toys 'r' Us is giving away the elusive mew for your gameboy. They give you a card and if your card says 'caught me' than you caught mew. Then on Jan 15th-20th the staff will trade mew over to your gameboy.

Avengers Toys

Avengers should be poping up in stores soon. Or so people are telling me. They have been released all over the US and should be arriving in weeks if not already showing up. I'll check my sources and get back to you.

Iron Giant

Just want everyone to know that the Iron Giant is one of the best animated film of the decade. If you haven't seen it, do it. The toys by trendmasters were not snapped up by consumers. There should be lots of great deals on Iron Giant toys.

A large shipment of Pokemon toys arrived at Toys R Us on Friday and many of the 2-Pak are there, but not all of them. The only ones I could not find were Kakuna & Beedrill and Pikachu and Riachu. I think that this may be one of the first time these 2 Paks have been around Canadian retailers. They have been also seen at Zellers.

Also the giant Mini Me Doll from McFarlane Toys was present there as well.
