Hasbro Canada distributes Hasbro toys up North, but the consumer still pays a higher price at retail because of laws (new packaging has to be done for the Canadian figures) and because, in the past, the Canadian dollar has always been weaker than the US dollar. Now that the US dollar has dropped and evened out a bit closer to the Canadian dollar, most people still produce items priced as if those older days are still going. A $9.99US mag cost maybe $12 or $13.99 Canadian.

The new Lego stuff this year, especially Hobbit,DC, and Marvel lines, is what is going to hurt the most this year.

I'm pumped for the spidey line and movie, but that's mainly bc I'm a spidey guy.
I think moving up the msrp is just a ploy to have more reasonable prices seem like "rollbacks" or sales. If things pegwarm, they'll drop that down.
I avoid the price increases by buying sale/clearanced figures and exchanging them for new figures at target for a while, so most mu figures end up costing me around 5 or 6 dollars.

Well Target was waste even on my day off The increase in price is gonna kill me 17.99 on the 2 packs and almost $10.00 on the Vintage SS.Even HALO is now 12.00.
At least Joe wise except for more Zombies, I am caught up there.
DC stuff a couple more pieces for the HOJ. Wave 20 will be here next week.
That will free up some cash for Matty subs plus T-Cats and more HALO.So everything else except wave 17 and I will be good for a few weeks;)

On the bright side at $17.99 the new comic 2 packs may actually hang around so I can actually find them!
