BTW, $39.99, which I reported on our front page... DarthChuckMC reported on twitter these were $45 down in Orlando I believe, and that hopefully was just down there... Is TRU allowed to scalp?
One can hope these don't go up in price.
I saw stuff like this in my TRU except worse (Marvel Legends marked up to $22.99 from $15.99) and was like WTF?
A manager at the TRU closest to me explained that there are now a bunch of TRU "test stores" around the country. Select TRU stores that jack up the price on certain items. Then they track sales. If the sales are equivalent to other areas, this is viewed as free money and the price hike goes nationwide.
My TRU is one such test store. And I am so lucky to be paying more.
My store is currently gouging like mad on Marvel but Star Wars vintage is $9.99, they were $11.99 for a while but the old stale TPM **** just sat there for like 4 months.
