Did your Wal Mart raise their Deluxe price too?

    For Americans only.

    My Wal Mart finally put out some old DOTM stock, so when I was over there getting a Sideswipe I looked to see if there was any FoC.

    I didn't see any of that, but I did see that PRIME Revealers had jumped from $12.98 to $15.87 or so. My eyes didn't pay as much to the cents as much as it did the dollars.

    Dang... that's actually more than Target. TRU doesn't look so pricy any more. So much for "Save money, live better".

    Might as well shift focus from Deluxe to Voyager at this rate. Might not get as many, but you get more bang for your buck.

    And if you are one of those "Americans are all rich and always have it so good and all have entitlement mentality so I am better than them" racial stereotypers, then this thread aint for you. Take it elsewhere.

    I haven't quite noticed it either, I'll be sure to check next time I'm at a Walmart on the hunt. If that's the case nationwide.... Then I think I'll be focusing my collecting dollars elsewhere lol.

    I thought the DOTM figures at the walmart near me were still marked lower (7.97 or something like that).

    I really should have scanned the price at the second Walmart I was at tonight to see if they had raised them and not changed the tags.

    Whenever someone brings up supposedly crazy prices, I remember my Target having DOTM Deluxes for $30 bucks.

    My Prime RiD Bumblebee WAS $12.88 but they bumped up the price to $15.88 + a 6% sales tax. Thank god my mother had her Wal-Mart discount card (my father works there) with her. Or else my Bumblebee would be still on the shelf.

    At least that is 1 less homeless Bumblebee taken from "the pound" Do you know what they do to Bumblebees who don't get homes within 2 years? They put them to sleep!

    Plus, I want the main cast of Prime.

    My Wal-Mart was $12.88, now $15.47. When you include tax that is around a $2.80 increase. I don't even want to know what that will do to the price on voyagers. Somebody needs an incentive program to get people to buy Bee's. If they weren't buying them at under $13 no way they will sell at almost $16.

    DOTM deluxes have been marked down to $7.27 for a while now.
