    No, it hasn't been. I have bought ALL my exclusives, Arcee, Cyb Ratchet, Ironhide, and Rodimus, for $12.99. I bought an extra Cyb Ratchet for a custom 3 weeks ago, at $12.99. The tags at my TRU 2 days ago STILL say $12.99, and I bought 2 more pair for other board members. They rang up, for the first time ever, at the new $14.99 price point, and they honored the tag price. This is something that has just hit in the last couple weeks or so.

    I do a lot of traveling for work and I've seen them at $14.99 for the last 6 months at TRUs in St Louis, Chicago, Houston, Phoenix, San Diego, L.A., and the DC metro area.

    There was even a thread earlier this year when someone noticed that Animated deluxes was selling for $14.99 and other deluxe lines where selling for $12.99 or less. Even a lot of the larger Animated lines where cheaper than the deluxes.

    I guess the price is based by districts or store. Who knows.

    They're $17.49 each around New York City. Had to pass in hopes of a sale...

    I don't know if this is a recent addition, but Animated Ironhide is back in stock at TRU.com.

    They're loaded in Vegas. And yea, about a month ago or so they jumped Animated Deluxes from $13 to $15. Definitely taking advantage of the collectors market (as with MP Grimmy). Thankfully I have no interest in either one.

    On the flip side, they still have Scouts at $8 where everyone else is doing $9.00. That could change out here soon.

    Found both of 'em at Toys R Us last night! :D  I knew if I waited long enough I'd eventually find 'em :)  Haven't had a chance to open either of them yet, I'll do that when I get home from work later, I'm sure they're awesome though!!

    Haven't seen hide or hair of these two in mid-Missouri, so I ordered a pair of Ironhides. I got them today in great shape.
