    Deluxes are fine, but I'd rather see Voyagers at $15 and Leaders at $30.

    Excellent news. Hopefully something good will come along, that I haven't purchased or preordered from BBTS.

    Can they please mark down the Movie Leaders? I want a Premium Prime that doesn't cost $40.

    Just have them price match at the checkout counter. Sometimes they will call a wally's on the phone to make sure, but 2 minutes to save over 2 bucks per toy currently on deluxes is worth it IMO.

    How do you get them to price match without an ad? Tell them Wal-mart has it cheaper, or do I need a Wal-mart receipt or something?

    I would like to see the price cut go to more size classes myself (as well as things like Marvel Crossovers).

    Not only are Activators more expensive than Deluxes now, but I think my Wal-Mart raised their price? They were $7.96 before, but are $9.xx now? Could have also been wrong shelf tags (Bakugan is right next to those TFs), but I'm honestly not sure.

    Outside of the 7.77 deluxes, my Walmart has also raised prices on a number of items. Activators are now 8.64 or something like that, while Marvel Crossovers have gone up to 16. Voyagers and Ultras haven't changed yet though.

    That is the reason why I went ahead and bought Fracture, Breakaway and Crankcase at the sametime, instead of one at a time. All three were on sale $7.77.
