Just taking this chance to point out that Castle set #7037 - Tower Raid has had a price increase on the UK Shop@home website.

Previous price: 19.99
New price: 24.45

Thanks Lego. Confused

In the past, certain sets seem to have a price hike applied if they undergo a supplemental production run. Though, in the past, I think I've only seen that occur within the Creator theme.

Not sure if that scenario is what you're encountering here or not. In the States, 7037 is still $29.99.

Yeah, but that's a retailer. TRU and now it seems even Amazon have been known to hike prices above MSRP here and there. What I find most disconcerting is when it happens on Shop@Home ...but again, the only times I recall seeing it are when I was under the impression that the set in question was undergoing a subsequent production run (sales coming and going not withstanding).

Target and Walmart usually are on par with one another , price wise. MSRP. Give or take $.50. But to see Target now increasing over MSRP, in this economy....just seems crazy. TRU has always been overpriced on LEGO. I would prefer to get all my sets at my local LEGO store...which I try to do for the most part, but sometimes I can't get over there. I never did see the gunship for $100.00 at Walmart......which sucks now that I am looking for my first one to buy. Sad

Increase prices now, then "mark them down" later: sale price = selling marked-down merchandise at MSRP.
