    Rumor about basic figure price hikes

    A buddy of mine told me today that he went to both Wal-Mart AND Target and asked if there were figures in stock. BOTH places told him yes and they were not putting them out for sale until a soon-to-be-realized price hike is instituted. BOTH stores told him this. Then I saw a supporting article claiming that Target is upping the price to 7.64 for a basic figure. In fact (according to this article) some newly-opened Targets have already begun and there were photos of the shelf tags to go with it.

    Kinda reminds me of the gasoline prices lately.

    $6.99 for a basic figure is the limit for me. If they up it to over $7.00, then I will be cutting back my SW purchases significantly.

    I am hoping the photograph was a fake...but it clearly showed the price to be for basic figures.

    That's hilarious, hopefully they'll increase the size of the empty blister to justify the cost hike.

    If the price goes over $7 I will be even more selective than before. Probably just clones and Imperial troopers.

    Wow. $8 is too much for a SW figure, when I can get a Marvel Legend, Transformer Classic, DC "S3" Superhero, or some GIJoe Sigma Six figures for $1-2 more.

    So wait until interest starts to wane to jack the prices up like that? Not a good idea. Why not keep the price the same and, oh, I don't know, TAKE OUT THE STUPID "FREEBIES" THAT NO ONE ****ING WANTS!!!
    Tommy, close your eyes.
