When Walgreens put them up on their website I'll probably just work out how much it will be to forward a few to Aus, the TR Brainstorm ended up being cheaper this way then most online stores were selling him for so I expect it will be the same with this one.

I hope Hasbro someday realises that US store exclusives won't help them earn extra coin, but instead give scalpers in the US an opportunity to rip-off other collectors who want these figures but have no access.
I know what you mean, I was in the same boat which is why I did as I mentioned above, was able to get two Brainstorms for the price one would have cost from a scalper. Granted I still think $40 each is too much for a deluxe but it's better then $70+

As for Hasbro, I honestly think they dont care so long as they make money. It's not so much that exclusives make Hasbro more money but that contracts with US stores that want exclusives end up making them more money. Aus stores just dont care enough to make those sorts of deals, though they are happy enough to get given as regular stock any exclusives that are spare and charge us 2-3 times more then they're worth (for example see the TRU exclusive TLK figures)

I just bought mine from EBay. Toy story world. $55au shipped with 10% off voucher. Got sick of waiting for a new RK preorder (its been sold out for days now) or a BBTS preorder. I think it works out cheaper than RK anyway

This Walgreens exclusive in America will be US$18 (before tax), and should be released some time this month.

Bought the set on eBay for $38. Good deal, works out to be $19 per figure; which is cheaper than a normal legends.
