    What in all hell is Target trying to do? The toys were barely worth the $12 they were originally listed for, doubling the price isn't gonna get that off the shelves...

    Yeah, I just got back from my local Los Angeles TRU and they have Deluxes marked up to $60. Just the way it is now, I guess. I only picked up one.

    Even if the OP's thing isn't an error that's actually referring to voyagers or an irregular product, Zellers & its $34.99 deluxes still has it beat. :D  Granted, that's a computer fuckup because they're only supposed to be $24.99 there, and what makes it even funnier is that PRiD Bumbleebee of all things is the one jacked up 10 bucks.


    Also, I loled@ Southtownkid.

    I'm kinda half-expecting Soundwave, Que, and Leadfoot to pop up now with prices that obscenely high. There's always some catch with TFs these days, retailers charging scalper-level prices sounds just about right for those guys.

    Target must be damn broke if they're inflating price for old toy from an overrated subpar movie

    DOTM Deluxes shot up to sixteen bucks in my area while Prime Deluxes stayed at thirteen. DOTM Voyagers were also 23, and Prime 20.

    That sounds, to me, like a local store misfire for the Deluxe Optimus w/ trailer, which retails for $30.

    Just a guess, or obvious observation, but it's got to be an error in the system. Stores are moving around the action figure aisle to make way for product from the Joe, Spider-Man and Batman films, and they're printing up new tags for not just the new stuff but also things that are moving around.

    Someone will catch it soon enough. I remember when Titanium wave 1 was first put out when I worked at Target, and the price for those was set to about $5 since it's price had been swapped in the system with Scouts, which were marked at $20(or whatever Titaniums sold for then) I let the planogram team know about it, they insisted it was right(which it was, according to the system that they followed properly), but it was corrected a few days later. In the meantime, I got Titanium Optimus and Megatron for $5 each! And they were worth exactly that.

    Makes me wonder if there's a $30 TF item that's been marked at $12.

    My Target has deluxes at $16 and voyagers at $25. Walmart, however, has deluxes at $7.27. Nothing much for voyagers, but plenty of leader Bumblebees at $42. They even have the one that comes with the deluxe Starscream for $44.

    Saw the same thing at my Target today. I thought it was maybe just an error on the tags but they actually scanned at that price! Obviously it's an error in the system but it's a pretty extreme example!

    Saw the $30 price tag too. I was under the impression it was just a mix-up with the Optimus Prime with trailer box, didn't know it was a national screw-up. :lol

    Saw the $30 tag here in PA as well.
    Thankfully almost all of our targets are out of dotm dxs already.
    Makes no sense at all.
