    $17 dollar with tax deluxes cause massive butt hurt. Expect Hasbro to move little to no Prime figures causing the line to be cancelled prematurely and these to show up at Ross / Marshalls / TJ Maxx for $9.99 :(

    Yea uh, this is what is occurring at US retail for some time now. Not much to say that hasn't been said in similar threads....but times are changing and so are toy prices.

    What's there to discuss? America's economy is going down the crapper, its dollar is devaluing, inflation is increasing, unemplyment is sky-high, more people on public assistance than ever, and Canadians are now generally more richer than Americans.

    Sign of the times.

    Just remember that when others say how good Americans have it.

    But let not your hears be troubled: at least Hasbro is giving us more for our money... but sticking new heads on mis-matched old molds.

    Right?

    Gotta say I actually like Wheelie. I don't understand all the hate for him.

    Perhaps. Have not been to Kohls in a bit. I think they are building one around here though.

    Makes (2) reasons for me.

    Price, and I really don't like these Asia's (except Wheelie).
