I'm thinking if it's across the board, then it's an increase on Hasbro's part at cost, which turns into an increase at retail.

Costs on anything coming from Asia these days is way up.  Sea freight has doubled or more.  Costs of any petroleum products like plastic have also increased in a big way.  Pricing is not going to come down anytime soon!

I remember really humming & hawing when we hit the $10.99 price point for power of the Jedi figures.  :(

Probably pass on all the carbonized. Price is too ridiculous. Not even sure how much I'll still be collecting. Even the new VC figures will likely be passes. I was already really iffy on the $17.99 price but now at $19.99, I'll be even more selective.

I finally saw the retro proto Fett. I may have gotten it if it were $15 but not for $20 so I passed on him.

Of all the Mando figures to finally get me to spend some money - the cloth jawa will be the one to do it. Talk about hitting all the nostalgia buttons.  :speechless-smiley-004:

Hi, I just got some answers from toysrus.ca customer service team about some products  : "Thank you for contacting Toys R Us Canada.
We have heard back from our Merchandising Team regarding the two items that you had inquired about. It looks like we will be carrying both the Retro Stormtrooper figure, and the Vintage Collection - Antoc Merrick X-Wing.

It looks like stores are slowly starting to get the Antoc Merrick X-Wing, and it looks like we should be receiving more of that item in approximately mid October.
For the Retro Stormtrooper figure, we unfortunately have not received any of that item yet. It looks like there is a rough timeline of mid-November."


Hope this help !

Thanks for the update. Not sure I'm in for another x-wing as much as I'd like that figure.

I wonder if TRU will be getting the Droids action figures. I really want the fett.

That's a surprisingly helpful response from TRU customer service! I would have expected a canned answer and them pointing you to some other unrelated product.

Coupon code CANPOST20 gets you $20 off purchase of $100 or more, and it stacks with sale discounts. Good til Dec31 so keep an eye out for sales.

I used it on a couple harry potter lego sets for my daughter. 15% off right now plus the extra $20. Really good deal for lego.
