The Iron Man The armored Avenger figures have hit the U.S.

Recommended Posts

Well, Well,,,,,,,,, This is why we dont want exclusives to just TRU. TRU has always been priced higher than any store. Walmart will be at $15 as well as Target. TRU is going down !!!

 

Uh, except a) these are not exclusives, and b) TRU has not been unfair at all with their pricing MU exclusives.

going to TRU on Monday and see what they have.

 

Heck, i may check Wal-Mart after the All-star game just to be sure.

but $17.99 is utterly ridiculous for an action figure!!!

 

When did we justify the price of plastic going from 12 to 18 bucks?

 

This better be packaged with a hidden surprise like a cracker jack box ...... SMH!!!!

I wonder if the price hike has anything to do with the fact that most TRU's that I've seen have always had an OVER ABUNDANCE of the first movie's 6" Iron Man figures... still. Maybe they're hiking the price to make up for lost capital from those figures... which they're still trying to sell at full price near me in Orlando ($9.99). That and TRU has been steadily adopting the failed business model of Kay-Bee Toys - if people want it, they're willing to pay our marked-up prices. It won't be too long before TRU goes the way of Kay-Bee: Chapter 11 Bankruptcy.

 

I can't wait for these new ones to start showing up at Wal-Mart at the more reasonable $11.99 price point, where they belong.

I'm a MS and MU collector, but I feel for the long-time ML collectors because of the enormous price increases.

 

It's like the movie "Pet Sematary"...

 

Sometimes dead is better.

News flash, these are selling for 15.99$ at wal mart, so a little cheaper but nowhere close to 11.99.

Yikes... now i don't feel bad making TRU give Titanium Man to me for $10.99. They stocked them with the regular OLD Iron Man movie figs. Pretty sure they'll move 'em now tho.

it's funny, I went to TRU and I saw the new War Machine which is pretty nice, but the Titanium Man was gone.

 

I guess a new figure at 18 bucks is still desireable, but the 2-Packs dropped down from $35 to $30.

 

Guess I will have to find Titanium Man at Wally World or bite the online shipping bullet.

The two packs are down to 17.97 at my TRU. And here is the new wave of Iron Man legends stuff.
