$79.99 is actually a pretty good discount from the list price, if you didn't notice. My guess is, now it's been out a little more than a week, they're moving back from bargain prices to charge through the nose. Most things seem to get more expensive after the initial discounts are ended, and then less expensive after a while has passed, when it's consider less of a hot, new item, if you take my meaning.

Either way, I hope people don't belly ache too much over a $3 price increase. It hardly seems drastic as yet to me.

Good Zod man it went up even two MORE dollars! Horrors! ;) Ahh, it's probably hover around the same price through Xmas. Though I'm sure they have a "formula" to calculate sales vs. expected sales vs. the season etc. and basically... even though this is a big blu-ray release, Amazon and the studios know what they're doing.

I would expect at least a one-day sale on it where it drops BIG. Or maybe one of those limited hour sales. $59.99? $49.99?

$89.99 and rising!

Is there no limit to the dollar-by-dollar gouging they're having to do to make up for all the people who didn't buy it...?!

Now it's just as well to buy it from Best Buy. And no waiting for delivery. Plus I would get the points toward my BB Rewards program. So much for Amazon as the cheaper alternative.

Amazon offered it for $79.99 since January 2011. Not really their fault that you didn't get around to ordering it until now.

It looks like Amazon has now matched that $79.99 price.

I was just about to buy it when I saw the $99.99. Look like we gotta wait till the pricing settles again -.-
Where can we contact Amazon about this?

Every retailer changes prices. Supply and demand, or competitive pricing. Sometimes they want to beat the competitior, sometimes they keep them at an even keel because they know you'll buy from them anyway.

Just a quick look at the time of typing this, Target and Best Buy's SW:TCS online are also at $99.99. For the moment that is! So given a choice, a regular Amazon customer is probably going to spend that $100 bucks here on Amazon.

Price dropped to $89.99 - should I wait and hope for another ten dollars off?

The Amazon marketplace sellers have it for as much as $15 less, new... Not that I'd encourage anyone to buy it, but I do encourage people to always shop around! :)

$79.99 then $85.49 now up to to $99.99...!!! Amazon keeps sending me e-mails about this, must be my sci-fi purchases or something.

And it just went up from $79.99 to $99.99 from last night to today! what's going on Amazon?

Posted on Jan 12, 2012, 5:46:02 PM PST
Was $69.99 yesterday !!!!!! OMG Finally I can buy this
and now it's $100 !!!! wow whats going on?

Posted on Jan 13, 2012, 5:40:03 PM PST
I was finally about this get this set for $70, but as CAMREBIRTH said, it's back at $99,99.
The only reason I'm passing on the Region 2 release (EU) is because it doesn't have as nice a packaging as the US release. If only PlanetAxel reduced their price I could get it there without having to fear import taxes.

yeah was at $70 for just a few hours
