Hey fellow Canadians. Long time reader, first time poster, sorry. I was wondering if anyone has come across this line of 7" action figures in or around Toronto. They're under the Metal Gear Solid 4 line and are manufactured by UDF. I'd love to get my hands on a couple. I'm currently in Kingston for a couple weeks so that'd work too.

These are directly related to video games so I hope nobody takes this as being off-topic. Here's a shot of the entire line:

If anyone can help me track them down, I'd be very appreciative. Online prices seem to be outrageous, especially after shipping to good old Canada, plus I hate to buy action figures sight unseen.

By the way, I wanted to thank you guys for three sweet deals I've come across on this forum that allowed me to make some great scores. Awesome forum.

PS: Did everyone get their online beta discs from EB? See you on the battlefield!

The whole line is available in the Kingston comic store "4 Colours, 8 Bits".

And stores in Toronto Gamerama and random comic book stores downtown (too many to name, Silver Snail's a good one) have 'em.

Whoa, I owe you one bigtime, kathos! Went over to 4 colors in Kingston and they had everything but Naked Snake. I grabbed 3 of em, 19.99 each. Hoping they will get Naked back in stock in about 2 weeks. I should still be in town by then, wish me luck. The figs are pretty rad, almost no articulation but that was expected.

Anyone know of a Canadian online retailer for these? I doubt I will find them in a shop in my rural area of NS. I don't feel like hunting around HFX next time I am there.

Shipping is only $7 from eStarland.com, but if I order more than one, I have to worry about duty and brokerage fees.

I saw Raiden locally, $20 @ Ages Three and Up today. Their site is www.agesthreeandup.com, they might have it online too.

Thanks for the heads up. Their website does show the collection, but they are sold out.

Imagine that... Raiden was the only one left. :)

I really want the snake eater one. But I wish he was in camo, or fatigues instead of a tight sneaking suit. Tight suits are for guys like Raiden. :) I'll still probably order one, from eStarland I guess.

I still haven't been able to get Naked Snake. Hopefully I can find it when I go back to Toronto next week. Anyone see that one around Toronto recently?
