    I'm sorry but 1-pics or it didn't happen and 2-you got overcharged for him by about $5. According the the press release from Toy Fair, the leaders are supposed to be back down to $39.99.

    Is that an official sighting? (ie not someone who bought one off eBay)

    I feel that the OP has sadly backed himself into a very tight corner. Awaiting photo proof...

    I believe it's on the front page somewhere, though I haven't read the story properly (Canada's too far away to really care) :lol 

    ^ And there we go everybody, proof!!!

    Rock and roll! It still looks like you got overcharged but a $5 premium on a toy that isn't supposed to be officially released isn't too bad. They probably just put it out under the HFTD leader assortment number.

    Right, I'm saying that the system hasn't been updated to reflect the actual DOTM pricing (because the toys aren't supposed to be out yet) so when it went through the system, it came up as a HFTD leader, not a DOTM.

    I made a big point to note that the leaders are supposed to be $39.99 again, along with the voyagers back down to $19.99 with the deluxes staying at (or maybe going back down to) $11.99. Obviously, this is MSRP but Target, of all places, usually goes by that.
