I talked with a Walgreens store manager once about ML, and he said anything below $13 meant they were losing money on the figure (at $19.99 MSRP). So 35% for Walgreens, it seems? May be a higher percentage for bigger retailers.

The amount Hasbro charges them would have to be well under $13 for them to lose money under that amount since the cost for them to manage inventory and sell the item would be baked into that.

Walgreens inventory screenshot from 2014 for their exclusive Black Series (white/concept) Boba Fett figure.
Their cost is $13.47; retail was $19.99.

That figure was an exclusive, so that affects cost. Surely they order fewer units than, say, Walmart, so quantify affects cost.
And costs of materials, labor and transport (as well as the retail price of the figures themselves) have all risen since then.
So it’s a baseline, but a lot has changed since then.

Yep. This was 7 years ago now.

Like I have said a couple of times, cost was around $15 but is now around $17 for ML(and SWBS, and GIJC).

Good to know - appreciate the edification. The Walgreens manager and I talked in early 2018, so it’s not been terribly long, but what you noted makes sense with the recent cost increases.

Can anyone send me a link to the stuff on the Walmart sale? I went to the site and all I get is 3rd party sellers with silly prices.

Thanks.
This should be everything still available as part of the sale:
https://www.walmart.com/browse/action-f ... id:6177789

I scrolled through and I'm not seeing any 3rd Party sellers for anything in stock so hopefully this works for you.
Thank you for the link. Only thing that interests me is Xavier, but it's not worth it all by his lonesome. Darn it. :lol:

Yeah for once I'm glad I impulse bought everything before stuff started selling out, but I hear you. If not for a few steep discounts across the Hasbro lines I'm collecting I'd likely have only grabbed a few things.

Hey, thank you for posting that. There were a few figures on your list that I didn't see yesterday, so I went ahead and ordered again today. Some of these prices are really excellent.
You're welcome! No idea why Walmart doesn't make their own search function much easier to use but thankfully they had this selection available under their Collector Con hub. Plenty of solid deals for sure especially for customs.

Did Target actually release anything new today, or was the hype for the "final day drop" all for nothing? Or just other lines?

Same for Walmart.

Batman 66 did not sell out, they never went up. Just more incompetence from Target.
