Algorithmic Pricing - The New Bane Of Collecting?

Posted by Paul | June 20, 2016 at 07:56 AM ET

File this under "We don't set the retail price, retail does" response we get from Hasbro all of the time. Distribution woes, fewer products each calendar year. Disregard for 3.75" super-articulated figures. Now this (not that it's anything new). Walmart's algorithmic pricing is at it again. While not a huge gouge, TBS6 Ahsoka Tano is in stock for $27.27 (and sold by, we checked). This may be a perfect example of why maybe Big Box retail needs to be under some sort of contract with Hasbro and the way things get priced. Instances like this over time create frustration and burn out and downright animosity. These figures are EXPENSIVE enough at MSRP. They shouldn't be sold by a legitimate retailer for more than what Hasbro suggests.
