Wow!  TRU increased the prices on the TFA vehicles now too.

$69.99 for XWing
$54.99 for Tie Fighter (but there battle damaged one is still $49.99)
Jakku Landspeeder and Snowspeeders (I think that's Class II) are now $42.99 (still better than Walmart's $47.99)

I think they also increased all the NECA 7" figures prices too... from the already high $34.99+tax to a painful $39.99+tax!  That is crazy.

edit: I checked today and yes, the newest ALIEN figures are now a crazy $39.99+tax (although the Isolation figures are still at $35+tax soooooo yay?)

You want to talk about price increases look at friggin Disney Infinity figures. Went from $13.99 to $16.99. This happened right around the time TFA was set to be released in theatres. Needless to say I haven't bought a single one since this price increase occurred.

I think the last time I saw, they also jacked up the Snowtrooper Officer to like $34.99 at the same time that they raised regular 6" BS figures to $27.99.

I doubt this is TRU's strategy but I'm curious to see how the higher retail price will affect scalpers. Not sure, as I'm not one, if it will seem less appealing or not to purchase it at a higher price then try to jack up said price enough to make a profit and not discourage buyers. Maybe I'm just trying to see a (tarnished) silver lining here.

i was just in tru today and the snowtrooper officer exclusive is $34.99 and all the other black series 6" are $27.99 so looks like it will be staying that way...ill be sticking to walmart as long as they keep the stock good which they have been slacking badly on.

I thought Disney was packing in the Infinity game. You would think these would all be on clearance.

They were down to 6.99 at EB Games week before last, then inexplicably went back to full price. The employees don't know why.

Yea Disney is packing it in with Infinity. They have a few more figures scheduled for release this year and then that's it. I think that once those figures come out then we will start to see the price of Infinity figures drop

That might be why the price went back up, maybe there are some new ones coming along soon. They cleared some pegs of old ones, will try to get full price again for a bit, then finally get rid of the last of them by Christmas.

I am hyped for the next round of Lego Dimensions sets  :)
