When did TRU ever have better prices?Have I been living in some sort of delusion for the past 5 years I've been collecting??Target always had better POTF2 prices and now WM probably has the cheapest.

TRU isnt in the price comparing business..they just want to make money.Does anyone actually think your average(I'm not saying all) TRU employee cares that a Jango is 30 something dollars at K-Mart???

Obviously the employees dont care, the chain should though.

Being the biggest toystore they can afford to sell things cheaper than most places.

Kmart, a chain going out of business shouldnt have any toy 15 bucks cheaper than TRU unless its on clearance

$47?!?! That's about $70 Canadian. Something isn't right with that....

I always thought Wal-Mart was the best place to go, they usually had everything and had cheaper prices.

Belive it or not KB have droped thier prices on the figures to 5.99. Thier ships and other stuff is still higher,but they are tring to compete now.

With the new Saga line I still have a wierd feeling whenever I find new figures at TRU. Throughout the POTJ line, I NEVER found anything at TRU until months after I found them at Wal-Mart (and sometimes Target) It's hard for me to get used to the fact that Star Wars figures are being heavily distributed again.:)

I rarely find new stuff at TRU. Of all the figures I have bought since POTF2 came out, only about dozen are from there. I have the most luck at Target and Walmart.
