    Finally tarting to see more and more DOTM. And, their price has been most attractive.

    At these prics, I just might buy more than just a couple. Now, many of us (myself included) have complained that MechTech took material and engineering from the figure. However, the price seems to be lower to match.

    Which is fine by me!

    The more reasonable price on deluxes is nice, but the size difference bugs me. I picked up Roadbuster - and he's great - but he doesn't look "right" next to Special Ops Jazz or Battle Blade Bumblebee (two of my favorite deluxes).

    In Canada it's the opposite. The price has gone UP on deluxes. :(

    Voyagers are back down to $19.99 but the pegs for the deluxes at work are all $11.99 whereas I'm pretty sure either Generations or RtS was around $9.99 for a time at least.

    Prices on everything else is ok I guess.

    Deluxes are 9.98 here in Portland for Walmart. All deluxes are at the 11.99 at Target. I'm not seeing any price difference other than the Target vs. Walmart prices.

    Prices are pretty nice at Walmart. Deluxes are 8.99 (I think. 8 something), Voyagers are 18.77, and Leaders are 42.99.

    Well seeing as we don't have any deluxes or voyager Megs at work, I guess I'll check TRU/Walmart tomorrow after I cash my check. Maybe I'll have better luck on prices and selection there.

    Jeez, I bought more Voyagers in the last 3 days than I have in a long, long time:

    DOTM:

    Voyager Optimus Prime
    Voyager Skyhammer
    Voyager Megatron
    Voyager Shockwave
    Voyager Ironhide

    TRU has them for $19.99, but Wal-Mart has them for like $18.77. That made me go for them. :)  And Deluxes have been decent at TRU and WM ranging form $9.77 to $10.87. Target has been more, and Fred Meyer has been the highest with $22.99 for Voyagers, $11.99 for Deluxes.

    At the risk of stating something most of you already know, when volume retailers refuse to acknowledge increased production costs, that increased cost gets dumped on international markets instead.



    U.S. pricing, IIRC, has been fairly constant since the Beast era.

    Foreign markets...it's steadily increased over the years.

    Glad you enjoy the low prices

    Prices in Europe on the other hand are absurd high! It's a pure ripp off!

    Here you pay 115$ for a leader, 50$ for a voyager and 28$ for a deluxe (NO JOKE!!!)
    And it is not that our incomes are any higher here!

    Well don't think hasbro will sell much here, except to the hardcore fans.Stores complain transformers don't sell, anybody want to guess why????? you get 1 shot......

    yeah i swore i would not buy anything from the 3rd movie...but i broke down and ordered shockwave and megatron (the voyager truck one) from amazon for the free shipping...and have sentinel prime in bound from HTS

    and then grabbed three dreads off TRU...$10.99 a pop to get that free figure promo...plus they TRU have the lowest price on the dreads right now...but now i am done with buying TF's from the movie...

    The thing here in east texas at walmart the prices are 9.88 for deluxes,18.77 for voyagers,and 42.88 for leaders.But like others have said at Target the prices are higher on all theres.

    Also at my Walmart they seem to have only got Wave 1 instock,but for Target its Wave 2.I wonder if that's the norm everywhere?.I sure hope not.Finally I figure in another week or so the big stuff starts coming out like Ultimate Prime,the Cyberverse Ark Ship,and even tho I am dreading it with a passion but HA Bumblebee for the 1500th time.Thats all.

    I've seen the DOTM prices cheaper at TRU and Walmart, although Walmart doesn't have their DOTM figures in stock yet. But I have seen the empty pegs with the prices already labeled.

    Target has their prices higher for DOTM figures.

    Every size class had a 20% price increase here with DOTM. And we almost never have any clearences on toys.
