Don't know if this has been reported or not but my local Sears Grand had Star Wars figures at $5.24 and the Expanded Universe 2 packs for $8 something.
I remember my dream now.

I believe I saw them for $10 or $11.99, forget which, but it was an increase...  Target's becoming less and less a place that I stop for SW.  They still haven't gotten new figures in around me anyway. :(  They're so far away though, I doubt they miss my business, haha.

I still haven't seen anything after Legends and Wave 4 put out in bulk in any of the Targets in my neck of the woods.  I have a feeling that all through Feb and March, waves 5 through 8 are going to hit en masse.  That's how it worked with the Appo waves last year.  I was buying Appos in Target in May.

Walmart and TRU have been awesome.

Target is becoming less of a stop for me too. Where in the hell do they dig up the pricing numbers $12.07? $12.30? I have even seen some other products at $30.49 a other weird numbers. Round up or round down, this weird pricing may have played into the fact that Target was the biggest Toy loser this holiday season. Their numbers in toys overall was way down from last year.

Anyway back to topic...I found a Vader coin albums at $5.00 each at Wal-Mart & GIJOE 5 packs at 17.49 at Target.

I don't get it either. We have 8 Targets in my immediate area and two of them at the one end of town always seem to flirt with jacking the basic figure price up a buck. I've asked management why that is and they say it really depends on how close the closest WM is, if there isn't one close, they can jack up the price because of lack of competition. This is obviously BS since these stores are closest to one of only three WM's in town. One is in walking distance. My guess is that the Target's in question are in the richer part of town.

Target has a set grouping of stores in each region that test higher pricing versus their other stores in the area.  We have 30+ Targets around Minneapolis and you can clearly locate the test stores, which are often 5-10 miles away from a store with lower prices. 

There is an initiative to comp to Wal-Mart, but they are also just testing sales rates at different prices.  If they found that profit improved despite a volume decline, they would then have rationale to increase prices across all stores.  Nifty way to test higher pricing, but frustrating for consumers who prefer to shop at the HP stores.

I usually don't let it affect my purchasing if I find something rare, but I try to not buy common stuff at the pricier stores and always try to make my returns to those stores to put them at a disadvantage.

This has probably been discussed, but the locals are saying they found $7.57 prices for basic figures at our local Targets - presumably it is the new sticker for 2008 product.

At a few of the price testing stores mentioned above, we had Saga/Legends figs at 7.64 for most of last year, so could be just this subset of stores using that price.  Never made sense to me that they would put Legends $.65 higher than the basic line, which was being priced at $6.99 in those stores.  ::)
