    $53.19? C'mon. At least their G.I. Joe 25th anniversary five packs were normally priced at $24.99.

    K-Mart is always more expensive than most stores, but this does seem steep even for them...

    leader brawls in canada go for 60$ and now that our dollar is pretty much on par, @53 would be a great price to pay, for us

    I know K-mart is more expensive but I seem to get some of my best finds from there. I scored 09 bumblebee, dropkick, payload, deadwing, and final battle jazz a few weeks ago at one super k-mart. It was worth the extra $1 per delux. But $53 is a rip off for a leader TF.

    Holy smokes thats pricey, but at least he's available at Kmart in your area. Kmarts around me have the crappiest selection of all Transformer dealers.

    My K-Mart still has a BTR Smokescreen! Yeah, the prices do suck. No one even goes near my area anymore

    Kmart and Meijers will always be a little over priced. It's probably the only way they can make extra money to compete against Walmart.

    My Kmart is still stuck in the 80's. It's kinda cool

    I don't think mine had Leaders that expensive last time I checked. Maybe $44 or something, but certainly not $50 or more.

    If it's something HTF... it's worth paying the slight premium (10 percent markup or more). I'd rather purchase it when it's there than dishing out money online and paying shipping.

    They've always been a little more expensive, but only by a dollar or two. They've recently hiked up their prices a lot, though. They probably figure with the Tranformers drought, they can get away with it, which is probably true.

    Oh I don't plan on buying one; I was just looking. And you're right, I've seen several at TRU and Target.
