I know prices for toys are due to go up next year due to increase QC for safety issues, but I did not think that applied to existing assortments already out. I went out looking for some GI Joe figures here in Seattle, as I heard Wv 4 was hitting Target and Fred Meyers, and at 2 different Targets, deluxes were now $10.99 where last week they were $9.99. I hit a TRU and their deluxes also were upped to $10.99 (though shelves still had $9.99 tags) and the Leader size was $42.99. An employee there said when the Voyagers go off sale, they will go up too. So is this in preparation of the price increase, or are stores just trying to capitalize on the #1 Boy's Toy this holiday season?
