Prices up

Posted in Action Figure Chatter

I just got a call from my friend who said the prices of Transformers and other toys just went up big time. I'll see sunday but he said both walmart and target wants 13 bucks for a transformer that was just 7.99 a short time ago. They were that price last saturday I know.

I agrea I think the Toy Biz Marvel Legends were much better than the Marvel Toys or Hasbro ones.

They have gone up in quality, too. Toy Biz made toys, now Marvel Legends are collectibles.

I liked the ML line better with Toybiz...not that the line was perfect but I was just super bummed when Hasbro took over for several reasons...

So far all the toy companies are really dropping the ball with painting. Mattel is so so with their DC stuff and Playarts is really good with the Square game toys but Neca's a mess and hasbro's not doing well even with the transformers. Prices go up and quality drops.

I disigre I think the Toy Biz Marvel Legends were much better than the Hasbro ones. The Hasbro ones don't hava as much articulation as the Toy Biz ones did they no longer have finger joints or toe joints. The paint jobs are also much worse!!!

I remember toybiz being pretty expensive for the time too. They need to find a good cheap subsittute for plastic and prices'll go down or start making figures out of recycled pepsi bottles lol.

True. even 9.98 to 12.88 is a heck of a price hike. The odd thing is hasbro's more for the Robot Heroes figures than warlmart.

A lot of retailers are doing temporary price cuts on specific toy lines...If you see 'em cheap snatch' em up 'cuz it may not last long...

Odd. I was hoping it was a glitch with walmart but since target did it to it can't be. I'll just keep ordering from hasbro.com since it saves me from having to run all over creation for the ones I want lol. And there are coupons you can find for them online. I saved enough to pay for the sales tax. I know that doesn't sound like much but it helps these days.

I was hoping you were right x.x they were stinkin 7.98 here a week ago. I really want to keep collecting the classics but they're so high now I might just go back to getting my imported Final Fantasy stuff. We should write a letter. I have to check hasbro.com, my buddy says they were still under 10 bucks on there so maybe I'll order form them. Yep hasbro.com is still 9.99.

Yep. they're up to 12.88 here. What the heck are they thinking? I passed up 2 figures I really want because of that price.

I wonder if its because he's in a more expensive area. I'll check sunday since I need the new bumblebee and cosmos legends size figures. He didn't get smokescreen cause of that price. if they are going up that much I'll just preorder the blasted things form Bigbadtoystore and save gas money.
