    Agreed on many levels. Still, I don't mind the prices of toys going higher for wage increases in China or anywhere else. Oil companys have the highest prophet increases ever- even with inflation and all other unforseen events taken into consideration, and keep it up by making everyone else pay more, not only to cover new cost, but to line their wallets even more then the 300 mile lining they already have. But, to ease working class peoples problems in China or really any other country, I'd happily pay more.

    So in a Transformer sense in the US, we're talking $11 deluxes, $22 Voyagers, $44 Leaders? Not much of an increase.

    Those arent the actual figures, it was an attempt at humour. Which went badly wrong.

    I'm thinking Walmart and Target will quickly turn into the ONLY places to buy any toys at all, since everyone else already has markup... Increase in price won't help everyone else at all.
