I would lean toward non-existant myself. While I certainally didn't peruse many Toys'R'Us', but I never ever heard of them being sold in Canada until this thread was started. I don't know though.
Looking at my desk, I find that I have an unopened set of this. It brings back interesting memories from when we all in North America wanted them and made that big old order. Good times.
For a impulse set it's about as good as you can get.
Like most impulse sets, the only parts are the minifig. And the minifig in this set is quite a good catch. Only avaliable in the chess set, this is a must have for those who want to get a wider range of crownie figs.
Not too bad, all things considered. Just a little table and owl stand, but hey, it's a impulse set. The owl stand really makes it for me. It's a good enough build and I'm glad to see that they bothered enough to make it, as opposed to just having the wizard hold the owl, which is what one might expect Lego to do.
Well I guess it's pretty good in this field. If a kid has other castle sets, this will add many levels of new playabilty. A wizard without any specific allegiance is always a good time.
So all in all, as good of impulse set as there ever was.
I build, therefore I am.
