I appreciate the heads up, but it's kinda ironic that this is on Slickdeals because Toys R Us charges more than MSRP on a lot of these sets.

I'm totally with you! TRU pricing is awful. Merely an alert for panicked shoppers with 7 days to go.

I don't like "heads up" posts. I want deals, greater than 20% off MSRP, otherwise it's pretty much a waste of time, sorry.

Many are 40% off, Debbie Downer. Scroll through all of them before mouthing off.

When did Slickdeals become a place to post a link to the entire inventory of something where you scroll through hundreds of items looking for deals which have already been reported?

Can you identify which new sets are above MSRP presently? Typically new sets are available at ToysRUs at MSRP on initial release. They will eventually get marked up above MSRP.

When did Slickdeals become a place where linking to a list of new items for sale mandates that the reader scroll through the entire website? We understand you want deals. But, some of us want brand new products, which are unlikely to be >20% MSRP in the next 7 days. I'm sorry this post causes you so much angst.

From what I've browsed, at least three Star Wars sets (Ach-To, Defense of Crait, and Speeder Bike) are all above MSRP. There could be more I'm not remembering - I didn't look at the other new stuff.

Edit: to clarify, I am comparing to the prices Wal-Mart will list them at. I could be wrong about the actual MSRP. Since they're not officially released yet, it's hard to tell what the MSRP is.

Either I looked at the wrong sets or at least one of the prices changed. Could have sworn Ach-To was $40 on TRU a couple days ago.

That's entirely possible that the price dropped. TRU are the worst with sneaky price changes and their beyond-MSRP pricing is exploitative.

Yet, you take the time to post on the thread...
