Unfortunately, Hasbro/Disney is going to price themselves right out of the market. A sad thing to see.

I have a feeling it’s going to get worse.  Six Inch Black Series are going up by 10% to $32.99.   This might mean $20 Vintage figures?

It could happen. Since the price of 5" GOA also increased at Walmart. I'm surprised TRU hasn't changed the prices yet. Maybe it's only Walmart. For now anyways.

 :fett:

Or worse - they'll not raise the price because they aren't carrying them anymore.

Though honestly the last time I got something at a retail store that wasn't an exclusive (or wasn't me picking up an extra one I got long before) I can't remember.

So if the MSRP has gone up, or cost through distribution has gone up, then I suppose the prices will rise across the board.

If it's just Wal-mart, then big whoop.  I never find anything good there anyway.

I did notice that the Walmart in Dorval seems to have removed the peg for TVC entirely.

Thankfully my closest store still has at least one peg, and it's still at the $17.99 price point. I'm not sure what's up next for vintage - the 4 figure ESB anniversary wave?

According to Yakface, this is what's next:

WAVE 11

VC164  Cara Dune (Mandalorian) x2
VC165  Remnant Stormtrooper x2
VC166  The Mandalorian x2
VC45  Clone Trooper (AOTC) x2

2020 Repacks/PhotoReal Repaints
VC04 Luke Skywalker (Bespin)
VC06 C-3PO
VC27  Wicket
VC47 Lando Calrissian (General)
VC50 Han Solo (Bespin)
VC86 Darth Maul (TPM)
VC92 Anakin Skywalker (TCW)
VC103 Obi-Wan Kenobi (TCW)

More repacks. Yay. Plus 1 new vehicle:

TVC “Duckboat” Troop Transport  (from The Mandalorian) – $69.99

I'm sure people can't wait for these two..

VC92 Anakin Skywalker (TCW)
VC103 Obi-Wan Kenobi (TCW)

There's also the next round of Retro figs.  I haven't paid attention enough to see if there's a date yet.

At least people will be able to avoid the eBay prices. As for the Retro figures, who knows if we'll even see them here. Wave one briefly made it to TRU and I haven't seen any since. Will the price go up for those too? The only figure that interests me is Boba Fett.

They were also at Real Canadian Superstore, for what it's worth. That's where I saw the only ones I ever saw.

Thanks for the info. Never saw any at Maxi, which I believe is the QC version of those stores.

That's where I got mine.  They weren't even on a peg.  Just stacked front to back on the bottom shelf...right out of the case.
