DO NOT PAY MORE THAN $15 FOR THE WRECK-IT RALPH FIGURE!!!,
This review is from: Disney INFINITY Wreck-It Ralph (Video Game)
There's a lot of confusion regarding the release of Individual Disney Infinity figures. What's going on is stores like Wal-Mart, Target, Toys R Us, Best Buy and Game Stop are getting "Exclusive Release" deals so only Best Buy is selling Wreck-it Ralph at the moment, but wait a couple weeks and all the stores will be able to carry these on their shelves. I think the only exception is the crystal figures that as far as I know is Toys R Us only item.
I have no problem with the practice of companies buying something at retail, and marking them up in their own store, but I think people need to be informed that these figures have JUST been released and they only seem scarce because of the exclusive release deals.
The Disney Infinity website isn't very good at telling you exactly where the figures are being sold exclusively, but if you go to a Disney Fan Site like vinylmationkingdom they're pretty good at about informing Disney Infinity fans about impending releases. So my point is, at this time there are plenty of Disney Infinity figures for everyone so no need to pay collector's prices at this time.
Some figures have a LOT of detailing like Woody and Rapunzel and I've noticed some paint jobs are better than others so it pays to be picky and got to a store where you can compare them to one another. In case you're wondering, Vanellope is currently being exclusively sold at Target, but it will be at all the stores soon!!!

We just bought this figure at Best Buy about 3 days ago for $12.96.
Thank you for your review. I hope it saves many people a lot of money by avoiding all the price gougers online.

Thanks for not giving it a one star review based on pricing, I hate it when people do that and thanks also for the information.

I'm sorry to disagree with you, but this is simply wrong information. Wreck-It Ralph is a Best Buy Exclusive. Please see link below:
As an employee at Best Buy, I can tell you that when this figure is gone, It will not be carried in a single pack again as per the information given to us by Disney Interactive. I believe Best Buy has an exclusive to sell it as a single pack and we've been told we will not be getting more in once the supply is echausted.
This will eventually be a collector's Edition.
