The second wave of Titanium 3 Packs have been spotted at a Target store in Southern California. This wave features vehicles from the Original Trilogy and includes re-issued versions of Luke's X-WING, the AT-AT, and Vader's TIE.
Following up on our earlier report, Target seems to be the retailer selling the Titanium 3 packs for Hasbro's MSRP of $19.99, which leads us to believe that Walmart, usually the "low price leader' amongst big box retailers, has their $29.96 pricing in error or they are getting really greedy. We lean towards the former.
As we reported earlier, the new Titanium 3 Packs were found in Walmart for an astounding $29.96 each. This is almost a $3 upcharge for each vehicle from what they originally retailed in 2009.
After an over 2 year hiatus, the Titanium Die-Cast Vehicle Series returns in the form of 3 packs and priced at a steeper premium for $29.96 per set at Wal-mart (where our samples were found this evening). That's a $3 increase for each vehicle from the 2009 $6.99 MSRP.
All nine vehicles in this first wave were previously released with no distinguishable variances in deco.
