    Hey all. I'm not sure that this has been posted, I know it was for the walmart jump, but I just stopped at the target that is on the way in to school, and their deluxe class figures have gone up to $11.99 per. If this is in the wrong place, let it be known.

    maybe that's part of the reason for the price hike...with KB gone, that's one less group for target and walmart to compete with...TRU was already at 10.99 for deluxes, kmart is around there too IIRC...so why keep selling it for so much lower, when you can raise the prices and still sell alot...and they'll have sales more often then TRU or kmart too most likely...

    I've noticed that Classics deluxes and Animated deluxes in the Targets around me still don't have the same price point. Classics are slightly cheaper.

    All the more incentive to only pick up rare figures first, then wait for the rest to go on clearance.

    Yeah, while hunting today I noticed that the price has increased as well at Target. Oh well I suppose...just limits me to what I should get and such.

    Looks like we are getting closer to the rest of the world. I for one have no problem with it. We were told the prices were going up a long time ago and then they dropped, which was really sweet for a while and I bought more than enough for custom fodder. Now that the prices are reflecting inflation more accurately it just seems normal. Now I wont be as tempted to buy all the movie stuff. Room is the problem for me more than money is at the moment

    I agree with you. Over the summer the price was at wherre it is right now. Then when the holidays was creeping up. Walmart and the other retailers decided to have a sale on deluxes. The sale lasted longer than expected. Now that the holidays is over the price is back at where it was at. A dollar more in some places.

    Some of you act like that the low price have been that way all the time.

    Seems to be a general thing, now. The Entertainer, a smaller chain admittedly, just recently raised Deluxe prices to £15 on my side. At those costs Kapow Toys is the best option.

    I just don't understand how walmart is still higher. They're GUARANTEED to have the lowest prices PERIOD.
