As far as I know, Canada will get the Fireblades again for 2001. The graphics have been changed slightly (for the worse IMHO), but they are still 'Blades. The one you saw in the Hebdo must have either been imported from the States, or one of the ones involved in the "plastics exchange". What I mean is that I heard of at least a couple of dealers in the States, and in Canada, that just swapped plastics with each other so that they could offer "Fireblades" in the States, and the States' graphics here in Canada. From what I hear, the dealers just did a straight swap, and then charged their customers up to $1000 more for the "exclusive" graphics.
