    I don't know if this was reported already or not,

    But anyways,

    I went to my local Target and noticed that Target has put Transformers Universe (2.0) Deluxes on clearance for $9.90. So it looks like the movie toys/preview toys will be hitting shelves sometime in April.

    Voyagers and Ultras are still the same price as before.

    So they jack up the price for a month or so, and than they think people will believe that $9.90 is a clearance price?

    Way to go Target....

    The price jack was just @ target though. That was a hasbro decission, so because the movie toys are comin up they are clearancing tfu, which is great for me cause because I can snag some extras for some repainting.

    Actually, the price jack was also at Walmart for about $13.00 (with tax) for a deluxe.

    They went up 2 or 3 bucks at Wal-Mart as well. Unsure about TRU, there isn't one close to me.

    Edit - beaten by SECONDS :p

    I thought the price increases were on a retailer basis?
    I remember walmart's was due to them extending the rollback prices on universe and animated deluxes(7.77) for too long thorugh the holiday season. Thus they had to get their money back that they lost.

    I haven't found or bought anything in about two months. Cant afford to just impulse buy deluxes at almost 15 bucks a piece.

    My Targets haven't had a Deluxe Universe figure on the pegs in over 2 months now. Never saw Ironhide, Ratchet, or even Universe Smokescreen.
