LEGO Hero Factory & Bionicle prices at TRU raised?

I visited Toys R Us today to pick up a couple small sets for some spares, and also some new toy-grade RCs to review.  I didn't realize they were having a BOGO 50% off sale, but I did realize that prices on canister sets were up.  Hero Factory Heroes (2.0 & 3.0 alike) and Bionicle Stars sets (still lingering, nobody wants 'em) were at $9.99 US instead of the previous $7.99.  Thank goodness for the sale, but wow, I never expected prices to go up on old stock.  Has anyone else seen this locally?

    Huh... I really haven't. Maybe I just don't go to TRU much, but whatever.

    Which sets did you buy? Some 3.0 heroes? I considered doubling up on Stringer or Bulk- specifically for the armor.


    Almost forgot, speaking of TRU, the 2012 Lego Dino sets appeared for sale on the TRU website, so it's only a mater of time before HF Breakout sets show up... We could very well get 'em in time for Christmas!

  11. Stars = $10.99 USD

    1.0 online = $8.99 USD for the ones still existing

    2.0 = $7.99 (2), $9.99 (4)

    3.0 = 9.99 in store, $7.99 online (?)

    4.0 = said to be $9.99 for heroes and villains, with the exception of Rocka, who is said to be $14.99.

    Scorpio/Rocka XL = They were at $24.99 USD, until just a few days ago they went up to $29.99.

    Witch Doctor = started at $29.99, then went to $34.99, and now at $38.99

    It's a good thing I was able to get Witch Doctor and Rocka XL when the price was lower, but Scorpio? Really? Is he even worth $30?
