Unfortunately, the way pricing works, is that a company will suggest the highest MSRP that a certain number of consumers are willing to pay to maximize profits on the product and encourage retailers to buy in. Then add to that the markups that TRU puts on everything (because they hate you) and you get a price like this. It's not just Transformers toys. Every product is priced way beyond their objective intrinsic value, based on utility, demand, R&D costs, quality, etc., because that's what manufactures and retailers can get away with without losing sales. The only remedy is to stop buying products that are overpriced. The problem is that, then you must go without, and with a rare item like MP Prowl, you probably don't want to be without. It's a vicious cycle, and consumers are the eternal losers in the struggle.
