    Finally saw Animated Rodimus and Ironhide in person at Toys 'R' Us, and they costs almost the same price as a voyager, and regular deluxes are like 13.99/14.99....
    Oh, and Leaders are now like $59.99. ('Supreme' prices FTW?)
    Seriously, what is the world coming to?
    I think I'm about done buying TFs at TRU. Also, is MP Grimlock instore at TRU?
    I haven't seen him yet.
    To keep this from just being a discussion-less tread, feel free to tell about crazy prices you've seen.

    I am guessing your not paying attention to the American dollar then? its not as strong as it once was. the AU is around parity with the US and we still pay up to $10 more for that same deluxe figure.

    Ssanco,

    Is your default TRU the TS one?

    BTW, I forgot to say thanks for your offer.

    I was originally going to say "so?" 'cuz that's what the prices for Deluxes and leaders are already...

    ...up here, but now I realise holy crap that's a jump for the US.

    So American Deluxe now equals Australian Scout instead of Australian Robot Heroes two-pack (can't recall off hand how much Legends are here)? Alrighty then.

    :Ok, good to know it's just mine. (I thought all TRUs had the same prices.)
    FOR NON US POSTERS: My concern was also:
    If the US is getting non US prices, would your prices rise too?
    But seeing as this seems to be an isolated incident, I guess not.
    And I'm such an addict that Im probably going to buy a tf or two at my TRU for crazy prices today. (I have to go anyway, and it never feels right to just leave without buying a TRU exclusive.)
    :crazy:

    I'm pretty sure Ani Rod and Hide shot up to $17-$18 in some areas just before Christmas. I just noticed by my they've come back down to $15 at least.

    Thread summary: How dare you Americans complain about the price of things.

    We foreigners always have things more difficult.

    It not just your store. Rodimus and Ironhide were 16.99 at my local store a couple weeks ago. Now they are down to 14.99 (all non-exclusive animated deluxe are 5.98). They have a lot of both so hopefully they will be on clearance eventually.

    I have also seen them on the TRU website for 16.99, and they have been as high as 18.49 in some TRU express stores before Christmas.
