Wasn't this 150 dollars the first time around? What exactly makes it worth 100 dollars more? Did Sideshow take it over or something?
Probably the same thing that makes them think they can sell that ATT (MTT, whatever) for considerably more than anyone else and offer a "$50 off!!!!" coupon.
Some of the price increase can maybe possibly be attributed to factory wage increases, but I'm going to bet that most of it is just TRU's good ol' exclusive markup.

I vowed never to go again after a disastrous TRU midnight release last year. Was going to hit my local Target this morning to use the coupons but unfortunately
A few more 6" exclusives were revealed recently, including:

Both ships have been repacked into the Rogue One line, so maybe a year from NOW you'll be able to get them on sale!
Or Force Friday II, or Go Rogue Day, or That Day When Your Wallet Hurts.
I was about 50th in line at the Burbank TRU when I arrived, appropriately,
