At the moment, all signs point to a price drop back to $5.99 for the Ep3 figures...
When you do a DPCI look-up on the Ep3 figures in Target system, they show a $5.99 price as well as that being listed at $5.99 in the early Toy Fair materials being distributed this week. I think it's safe to say that the $7 thing is temporary... unfortuntaely we won't for sure until the day of most likely.
I was just mentioning this elsewhere too Jeff... The price spike by TRU and Target's nothing new really when prices fluctuate. When it dropped to $4.99 I recall bothc ompanies NOT complying immediately, and WM sorta forced it on them.
Same things happened when E1 stuff went up and then down during POTJ... When POTJ went down I recall not everyone going down to the SRP that Hasbro set, except Wal-Mart who weren't getting a TON of POTJ in yet because of E1 gluts.
Target and TRU are just spiking price to make an extra $1 leading into a highly competitive time between retailers. If they're $5.99 at Target that's where I'll likely go, or TRU. WM will be a madhouse... Unless I don't feel like driving the distance, I'll probably make for another store.
