          Price comparisions by region and country are quite difficult as there are so many variations in the open competitive markets, but I'll have a go.

          In the US local state sales taxes are added to the stickered prices. I've assumed an average of about 6.5% (although I appreciate that it can vary wildly).

          In the UK, current single prices have just risen to a RRP of £5.99 GBP. Some sellers will keep their prices low, certainly for Cars 2 / old stock.

          Also the UK is subject to 20% sales tax, which is included in the price. I think the sales tax levels are slightly higher in most other European countries. It's only recently that the UK raised VAT (value added tax) from 17.5% to 20%. Apart from a one year reduction in 2009, the last rise was from 15% to 17.5% in 1992.

          If we take the UK as a benchmark (GBP) this is how it works out (in rough terms):

          Singles:

          UK 5.99 GBP (Disney Store Cars 2 4.50 GBP; Others typically 5.00 GBP) (Mattel 2013 RRP = 5.99 GBP)

          US 2.75 GBP (4.25 USD) ~ Exchange rate 1.5480 (Historical average 1.65 = 2.58 GBP)

          AUS 6.85 GBP (10.00 AUD) ~ Exchange rate 1.4620 (Historical average 2.50 = 4.00 GBP)

          Europe 8.61 GBP (9.99 EURO) ~ Exchange rate 1.1601 (GBP/Euro was set up as 1.60 = 6.24 GBP) (Historical average 1.45 = 6.89 GBP)

          The UK actually comes out quite well!

          The exchange rate varies quite considerably over time. The GBP is particularly weak at the moment, so those prices are artifically inflated.

            (I have no idea what the rest of what you mention is...but thought it could help out lol)

              Toys R Us starting 2/17/13 is having a Buy 1 Get 1 1/2 Off sale on all Cars Diecast and Sets. So if your lucky enough to have anything in your TRU this week could save you a couple bucks!! Also I believe if you have bought anything recently you can go back and get a price adjustment!

                Thanks for the heads-up, Scavenger...

                The TRU I stopped at had next to nothing in the store... I was going to ask if they were closing... then I heard employees say they were getting ready to move into a larger store 4 stores up with a combined Babies R Us... that explained it.

                    Thanks for the information, All4Mase... Maybe I can stop by a Target this week.

                    While Meijer has Cars and Planes singles buy 2 get one free this week, there's nothing at the local store worth buying... now if they changed it to buy 2 get 10 free I might take the 24 pegwarmers off the pegs.
