Title: Sells Price Backlash is a Bitch
Blade Raider - February 1, 2009 08:27 AM (GMT)
I heard this elsewhere and was hoping it wasn't so, but when I went to Wal-Mart today, Deluxes were $13! I'm mad, but it hasn't set in yet sence they didn't have anything I wanted (It will the moment I find something new). It went from the $7.77 sell to the old $10 to $13 in under a week. I expected the price to go up, but not this much! For the first time in forever, Target is cheaper than Wal-Mart! Say it so, Wally, say it ain't so...

We pay $20+ here.

$15 to $20 here, depending on where you go. Bigger store means lower prices. Wally was selling Voyagers for $22 for awhile.
edit: I can't spell worth beans today.

This is why I love shopping in NJ Targets and Walmarts.
Voyagers $ 17.68
All as of Sunday Feb 1st

holy crap! You guys are paying $20 for DELUXES?!! that's ridiculous...
The Deluxe's at my Walmart last week were 9.60 I think. I'll check again Wednesday.

I'm about to head out to my local Wallyworld now. I'll check on the prices here in NY.

if ours have gone up, I sure as hell won't pay them. I'll just go to target, which is closer and easier to go to. Pretty much that will kill me going to Walmart altogether for the forseeable future.

Up here in Canada the prices are because our dollar isn't worth as much. Although, for the few months when our dollar was worth more, prices here didn't go down.
LightSlayer - February 2, 2009 11:01 PM (GMT)
ok I'm back with a report.
$12.88 deluxe. $21.96 voyager.

Genral rule up here is $10 per size, Ultras are usually $30 to $40. Not kidding.

ATM our Ultras and Leader class are the same price.
Which is nice.

WalMart has gotten too big for its breeches.
I'd rather shop at Target or TRU anyway.
Darkhour - February 5, 2009 01:00 AM (GMT)
TRU is the most expensive up here.
Roadbuster - February 5, 2009 04:16 PM (GMT)
The only easily accessible TrU to me got wiped out by Hurricane Ike...

|Now Target introduces a new price for Deluxe Transformers |
Posted on 02-05-2009 at 03:37 PM by Sol Fury
Following on from news of Wal*Mart's price rise last week, we have received word that Target is also raising the price of Deluxe Transformers. 2005 Boards member OMEGAPRIME1983 reports that Target is now selling Deluxe class Transformers at $11.99 each, which however remains approximately $1 less than Wal*Mart's prices.

Oh, I knoe this pain. I saw Dinobot at Target, with a temporary price markdown to about $8.99, but I set him down because4 there were a few more stores I wanted to go to and I wanted to be sure I had money for anything else I might find. Well, I didn't find anything, and didn't go back to Target to pick him up. The next day or so I went to Wal*Mart, and they had Dinobot, but he was $12.88! I was so fucking pissed off. I bought him anyway, but I wasn't happy about it. Why the hell would they charge that much for a frickin' delux Transformer?

Man, you guys are complaining when the rest of us have to pay way more.
