Please can you help me , I’m looking to purchase this blaster from Canada but don’t know if it’s real as I’ve never seen cellophane or card board sleeve before

Why would you think it's from Canada? Usually Canadian stuff has bilingual packaging. Thought maybe you meant the seller, but they seem to be in the US.

I could be wrong, but I think the shrink wrap was probably done after purchasing to "preserve" it in the same retarded way AFA encapsulates MOC figures in plexiglass. A lot of stuff from the US is in Canada, as stuff easily migrates over 4 decades of being out in the world. One word of caution is that the packaging is easy to replicate, and putting it in shrink-wrap may make it harder to authenticate as original. And yeah, Leif_G is right about the bilingual text on Canadian packaging, Viva Le France.
