    Deluxe figures are now $15.49 and Cyberverse Legions $5.49 each.

    Bad enough figures are not moving and now they jack the prices.

    Sad thing is my Target just put out 2 cases of Wave 1 legions and a Case of Wave 2 Deluxes. Thank god for Ebay and BBTS.

    still cheaper than wal-mart, and i'm pretty sure this isn't news. at least not for me, my target was like this 2 weeks ago. i thought it was already standard.

    When they have a sale during the Christmas shopping season they will probably mark them down a couple bucks and act like they're doing us a favor.

    My local Kmart upped the prices on Deluxes to $18...
    That was total bullshit. I'd take Target's prices any day.

    My Kmart raised the prices of deluxes to $18.99

    And to think at Discount Stores Voyagers were $10 for RTS at discount stores and Walmart had DOTM Voyagers for $13-$15 regular priced.

    I don't think this has anything to do with hasbro raising prices. The stores do research on the merchandise that's selling and act accordingly. It sucks that fans are taking it in the backside.

    My Target still has the same 23 Bumblebees and 1 Cliffjumper. They won't get anything else in until those start selling.... Thank God for BBTS...

    I'm sticking to online stores just so I know I can find it. Even though it's a bit more expensive, but with all the gas you use in hunting, it almost kinda evens out :p

    Could be worse. Went to a K-Mart the other day with PRID Deluxes at 18.99 each. Strangely, Voyagers were only 21.99.
