No kidding. This is unreal. Even worse is that if you ask a manager or something, they know the original price. They're aware of the increase, but can offer no explanation. Bunch of crooks...

TRU on 360/183 had a new case of Generations DLX figures and a case of TF Prime Voyagers. I saw them on the top shelf. The also had Vortex and another combaticon on the peg. Prices on them are up to $15.99 from 14.99 but they supposedly price match.

TRU on 35/parmer had a bunch of GDO powerdives and megatrons.

I guess GDO Leaders are out in Canada and there's a Starscream too? I'm in Kitchener, Canada and hit a TRU here. They had those two so that was a nice surprise. No FE Voyagers though
ugh, the leaders, they cost over $45 though with the exchange rate

Base prices aren't determined by anyone in the store. I think any kind of markups above base price in a particular location(like Bunker Hill) are automatic and based on volume of the store.

Even when I help customers, if it comes up, I'll bring up how expensive things are/can be. There's this one flimsy looking Batpod thing that rings up for $32. Which is crazy. It looks like it's worth $20 tops.
