    Was bound to happen eventually. Walmart and Target have presumably been keeping the prices artificially lower for some time now.

    We just got one wave of PCC here in Serbia, and they sell for $18. Deluxes are $22. I just saw a ROTF Leader Prime (yellow box version, whichever it is) for almost $200 the other day in a store.

    So... *shrug*

    What's that, Target? You don't want me to shop at your stores anymore?

    Okay.

    And this is why I refuse to buy scouts any more. They just aren't worth it.

    Excuse my language, but fuck me. $10.99 for a damn Scout? No thanks. If the Scouts are that price, then what is the price adjustments for Deluxe, Voyager, and Leader?

    Last I heard deluxes are $11.99, back to pre-Xmas pricing...but I'm not sure if they have increased again.

    Legends for $6...jesus...

    Yeah, if they're going to be these prices at all the stores, I'll just order online.

    my sentiments exactly. i can only hope this isnt at every target. $12 deluxes are one thing but $6 legends and $11 scouts are just downright stupid.

    I have no problem with 12 dollar deluxes. If that's what they stay. But a SCOUT for a dollar less? No.

    Shouldnt the thread title be 6+ for legends or 10$+ for scouts? (6+ is a little off)

    Those are more than Canadian retail for scouts, and legends. :p  (unless you count TRU) Identical for PCC 2-packs.

    Still behind the UK. ;)  And you should be thankful you don't live in Scandinavia.
