If $8 is to become the norm across the boards and into the 30AN line, then I'm finished with Hasbro's 1:18th offerings, wholesale. I nearly got out at the begining of this year with the post-ROTS price increase, but this...this is just absurd.

Who's responsible for this increase? Is Hasbro at fault, or is retail?

It's retail. Hasbro has repeatedly said that they don't set the prices and that retail does. I believe them on that aspect. We've seen Target and Walmart play tag with their Star Wars prices. Its really obsurd to pay more than 5 dollars for these figures.

MJ - I don't know of any retail situation where they would prices just because they think they can get away with it.

More often than not, retail prices are raised because of an increase in their wholesale cost.

Just my opinion, based on my experience(s).

Well, this is the week of the reset. If Target was poised to raise prices, I think it would have started today.

Pamida stores have raised their prices to $9.99 for basic Saga figures - let me know if you need any Hoth Vaders...

VTSC are still $14.99.

Amazon has some Naboo a dollar cheaper than KB's site did the other day. I just ordered a few.

TRU is running a sale now when you spend $20 on SW merchandise you get a action figure FREE. Sale expires 10/28/06. Might be a good opportunity to stock up on army builders, a vehicle you might have been holding out on.

I went to Wal-Mart last night and found that all the basic TSC figures were marked down to $5. It's not a sale or clearance or anything. That's just the new price, apparantly.

It really varies from store to store though. We have one Wal-Mart up here that has been at $5.66 or cheaper for awhile now, but every other store is at $6.63.

Hopefully that $5 trend will spread to other Wal-Marts. If rumors of $8 figures are indeed true, I'm done with the line.

I snagged the TRU Tie Fighter and another Sandtrooper doing that.  If they have the tins, I'll snag another Sandtrooper or hopefully an Endor Trooper...

Some early Black Friday Shopping Rumors!

Looks like K-Mart will be offering "Buy One, Get One Free" on all Star Wars basic figures.... I'd be more excited but since my local K-Mart usually only has 2-4 figures, I'm not holding my breath!  ;)

That's not a bad deal, but none of the three TRU's on my side of the valley here ever have anything but GB figs.

My Kmart still has Mas Amedda and TSC Leia in Boushh figures on the pegs. Looks like its a no go for me either  :-\
